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.

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!

Ella is 14 a 14 yr old young lady who looks forward to going to her guitar lessons with Ric, she has never picked up a guitar before this. This is her 3rd lesson, but she has become more confident in who she is already. Even at school in her normal day she seems to have opened up more and not so shy. Ric is an amazing teacher, soft spoken, cheering her on, and is fun. Ella's words: Ric says "If i make a mistake i shouldn't stop and look back i need to just keep going forward" so that's what i keep doing until i get it right. Thank you Ric!! Rae, Mark and Ella Hansen

Hello! As an adult beginner seeking to learn the guitar, I can tell you several things I've discovered through experience. Things I can state with complete confidence. 1) Learning to play guitar can become overwhelming rather quickly! With all the information available on line, through books and from friends who say they can show you, it's quite easy to waste a lot of time learning stuff that really isn't productive over the long haul. Sure, you'll learn quickly at first because you're starting from zero, but once you learn the fundamentals, now what? This is where the majority of guitarists languish for years rehashing the same old stuff and never really improving. You need competent guidance! 2) Speaking of competent guidance, I've had numerous teachers who were really good guitar players but after a couple of months watching them play, you begin to wonder why YOU aren't getting much better. They're good, you're not and you're not getting much better. You're wasting precious learning time. Playing and teaching are 2 separate issues. Being able to relay information is probably more important than the ability to play when looking for a teacher. Phil can not only play but excels at explaining music concepts so they are readily accessible to students seeking knowledge. He was the first instructor I was exposed to who had a prepared, written game plan. A step by step road map to mastering the instrument that he explains patiently and intelligently. He loves both playing and teaching the guitar and it is abundantly clear when you talk to him about the subject. I have yet to have a session with him where I didn't feel that I was better after our lesson than I was before it, and that is the main reason one seeks out an instructor. So they can get better! 3) Phil treats lessons like a professional. He's never been late or surprised by my visits. He is always prepared and that's one of the things I like best. He makes me feel like I'm his only student and that MY progress is what's most important. I'm not just a time slot to fill or a check to grab and cash. No ego or showing off his skills for large chunks of the lesson. My skills and my improvement is what matters most and my entire lesson, from start to finish, is devoted to that. 4) Music theory is a bit spooky, especially for the beginning student. The problem isn't the complexity of the subject but how it's explained and mapped out. Yes it can be complex but in order to truly understand the instrument, you must understand the underlying concepts of music theory. What I liked most about my initial interview with Phil was his interest in what I was looking to accomplish. I was questioned about my goals. What did I want to accomplish. Learn music theory? Learn to read notation? Learn to just sit on the couch and play the blues or rock or pop music? A combination of some of it or all of it? He had a path for any/all of it tailored to my wants and needs. I'm thrilled with the path I chose and my progress on that path but I'm reminded by Phil that the plan can change as I grow and learn which is as it should be. Flexibility in learning means more options which also means constant learning without stagnation or hitting a wall that equates to more wasted time. If you seek professional, intelligent and skillful instruction as it relates to the guitar, I urge you to seek out Phil and discuss your musical goals with him. He has helped me both understand music as well as the instrument. It's quite a thrill to honestly believe you are improving quickly at playing the guitar. I look forward to continuing to improve with Phil's guidance and honestly feel my goals are well within reach. Both my playing as well as my understanding of music is growing daily and I eagerly anticipate what the future holds for me and my guitar journey with Phil's assistance!

I took bass lessons from Kameron when he lived in Philadelphia and cannot say enough good things about him. He taught me how to read music, was always prepared with a lesson and gave me great material to work on at home. Kameron is a seriously talented bassist and musician and can take your playing anywhere you want it to go. I ended up playing bass in a local cover band and I highly doubt I would have gotten there without him! It was a TRAGIC day when Kameron left Philly. Let our loss be your gain....

    This is best music opportunity for children interested in rock and roll. Our kids have been at the School of Rock for over 4 years and the rewards to them have been many. They have received excellent instruction in guitar, drums, bass, vocals, and on-stage performance and as well as attended many of the free workshops and fun get-togethers the school organizes. Most valuable however, is the weekly experience collaborating with the other students in band rehearsals. They truly feel like they're part of a rock band and need no other incentive than this to practice each day. The instructors and show directors have high expectations of all students. Students who work hard are offered additional opportunities to participate and improve. As for Stacey herself, we truly believe that it is her open, positive attitude that has created such a supportive, successful environment for the students, parents and staff.

      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 have been taking lessons from Rick at the St. Paul Guitar Studio for just over two years, and still look forward to my lesson each week. Rick is incredibly patient and encouraging, which keeps me motivated to learn every song we attempt. The studio itself has a very relaxed atmosphere and everyone I've met there, whether student or instructor, is very friendly. We all have something in common - we all love guitars! The studio has recently added a new feature which I am very excited about. There is now a repair/supply component, which makes it very easy and convenient to pick up new guitar strings or drop my guitar off to have the strings changed out. I would highly recommend Rick or any other instructor at the St. Paul Guitar Studio for their vast music styles, ability to teach to every level of guitar skills, and friendly and encouraging teaching methods.

      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!

      My approach to guitar I feel is unique because I simply built myself from the ground up musically, I have always been a big fan of music since my first memories which consisted of bands like Aerosmith, Led Zeppelin and Dire Straits to name a few. Later I diversified myself musically from gaining exposure to all different types ranging from Parliament, Frank Zappa, Rush, Emperor, Morbid Angel to stuff like Leadbelly, Chopin, Brian Setzer, and Waylon Jennings. It has been a sttange and interesting musical journey, filled with time spent playing with musicians of all types, jamming or otherwise.
