Alex has really provided a great learning experience for my son who takes guitar lessons from him. Unlike many music teachers that determine the music their students will learn, Alex really makes sure the students are involved in picking their music so the student stay interested and wants to learn and practice the music. I highly recommend Alex as a guitar teacher.

I have been taking guitar lessons from Mike for ten years and I was at absolute zero when I began. He is a fantastic instructor, very knowledgeable about music and theory, and I've never needed another guitar instructor. I'm very happy with my playing ability and even after all this time, a marriage, kids, a house, and a bit less opportunity to practice than when I started, Mike's lessons are still interesting and I'm always learning. I would highly recommend guitar lessons from Mike regardless of your style, age, or current playing ability.

Bruce is awesome. He is patient, and knows how to not only teach guitar, but tune the lessons depending on how I am doing week to week. He keeps it lighthearted while we progress. Highly recommended.

Christian has given me so much when it comes to my understanding music and expressing myself with piano and guitar. I encourage anyone interested in learning from an incredible teacher, both professional and with years of experience in the industry, to look no further than Christian and The Hollywood Rock School!

Want to learn guitar in a casual but constructive environment? Try taking a few lessons from Josh Von Mink. When I first became interested, Josh not only offered his advice but actually helped me pick out an acoustic guitar. He found me a sturdy and capable Cort that didn't set me back too much. Then he encouraged me to learn a few things from him. When I finally got around to seriously wanting to spend time with my guitar, Josh was willing to show me the ropes. He is all about the student learning at his or her own speed. We played a few songs by artists we both liked so that the lessons were immediately fun. When I asked for more structure, he was happy to outline some chords and notes on paper for "homework." You know there is always more to learn, and Josh is eager to see people want to connect the dots and move on to the next stage. Most of all, learning from and playing with Josh Von Mink is fun because he has a genuine passion for the guitar and the songwriting that follows from it. He's not afraid to push his students to do a little more than they are capable of, but he's by no means pushy or demanding. He shows off his skill so that you know he's a worthy teacher, but he won't make you feel stupid for not being able to do what he's trying to show. Take advantage of Josh's service and start strumming some tunes! - Levi, Minneapolis, MN

Mark is patient and skilled professional. He takes time to teach beginners the correct techniques as well as encouraging them to play their instrument. We feel very fortunate to have him as an instructor as our son practiceas and always looks forward to his lesson. (Can not believe this but he has his instrument and in the car before me!)

Colton came to our house to teach our 12 yo son and 14yo daughter to play guitar. Each lesson is tailored to the child and his/her capabilities. Colton is humble, able, and both of the kids enjoyed working with him. I like his style of giving a free lesson to see if he's a fit. And, he drove to our house. How can you lose?

My 12-year old son took guitar lessons from Rachel last summer. She was recommended to me by a friend. He had already had about 3 years of guitar with another teacher. As a parent I liked: how she set the schedule up, the price, her willingness to be flexible with scheduling conflicts, and her balance of playfulness/teaching with lessons. My son liked: the bead system to reinforce practicing, learning chords vs. strumming method, having input into music choice, and comfort of the lesson location. I do not know Rachel well personally, but I was impressed with how organized she was. You can tell she loves music and she is good with children.

Our family has taken music lessons Mike Salow for over four years now. My one son plays guitar and drums an the other son plays bass. Mike is an excellent teacher in all of these instruments. He is patient and upbeat with my boys, professional, courteous, prompt and very reliable. He has won numerous awards for his guitar playing and is very versatile. Mike can start with classic rock, drop back to jazz, change to classical, and end up in an insane death metal shred without missing a beat....in guitar, bass and drums. It's crazy. We tried a couple of other in-home music teachers and none of them came close technically or had the ability to relate to and teach kids/young people. My boys went to the McPhail Center for Music and even their instructor and program was far inferior. Mike is a patient teacher that finds what motivates his students. He has an honest and kind way of relating that has kept my kids tuned in and motivated. Mike is the whole package musically, a great teacher and a wonderful person to contract services with. My whole family feels lucky to have found him. This guy is the bomb! You just can't get any better.

    Olu is a fantastic guitar teacher. He plays the lead, acoustic and bass guitar extremely well and he plays several music styles. His teaching style is unique in that we practice a tune on the bass and then he accompanies me with his acoustic or lead guitar, therefore every lesson ends in a jam session

    I am 50+ guy who is an advanced beginner or early intermediate and have had many "beginner" guitar instructors. I was very pleasantly impressed with Loba and very highly recommend him. He teaches many styles of music but perhaps most importantly he shares with you how to play, to feel the music and express the feeling the music has for you - so you are not only learning a new piece but you are owning it personally through Loba's encouragement and guidance. You take guitar lessons with Loba not from him - it is a shared experience. As person, he is friendly, polite, patient and sensitive; and will share his many experiences with music and people - an education alone. This is a very positive referral, and should be, Loba has earned it and will continue to, hopefully for you!

      I've been taking guitar lessons with Jack Klatt at Blackbird Music. Not only is he a great musician, he's a great teacher. Very patient and willing to tailor the lesson so that I'm getting the most out of it. As an adult picking up an instrument after a long break, he's got me back in the swing and improving immediately.

      Aaron Felty tutored me in Algebra when I was having trouble keeping up in class. He was extremely knowledgable, patient and personable. The light-hearted atmosphere of our sessions allowed for me to better understand the information without creating the distraction of stress. I don't believe I would've passed the class without his help.
