I'm not from the area, but while I was in town, I was able to take a few guitar lessons with Alex. He asked about my goals and tried to customize my lessons. He's a good teacher. The location is great too. I like that Alex teaches out of a space, in a church. Also, he provided excellent customer service and refunded my paid for sessions, after I became sick with Shingles and had to cut my lesson taking time short. He's patient and has a good attitude. I imagine he is a great teacher for kids too. If I had any kids interested in guitar, and was from the area, I'd sign them up for guitar lessons with Alex.

Coming from a 5 year orchestral background, I thought there was little guitar lessons would have to offer me, but I was quickly proven wrong when I started taking lessons from Mike. The amount of depth I had left untouched was astonishing to discover as we started with scales ranging from blues to classic, chord structure and how they were interchangable, and later applying my newfound knowledge to songs from artists like Clapton, Stevie Ray, Chili Peppers and many more. My only regret is not having started lessons sooner.

I have really enjoyed taking lessons from Bruce! I am still new to it (began lessons ~4 months ago) and feel that I have learned so much! I tried taking lessons about 3 years ago from another instructor, but found myself frustrated and overwhelmed. I ended up quitting after about a month. I thought that perhaps I was too old to learn an instrument (it was my 40th b-day present to myself). However, Bruce has a teaching style that is organized and logical. He listened to my motivations and goals for wanting to learn to play the guitar and guides me each week with enough to challenge, but not so much that I feel defeated. He has responded to phone calls and emails within the same day and I appreciate his flexibility with lesson times and locations as well! I fully intend for my daughter to take lessons from Bruce as soon as she is old enough. I fully recommend giving Bruce a call if considering guitar lessons!!

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?

Jonathan is an excellent musician/performer and an excellent music instructor. He designs my guitar lessons to fits my needs as a K-5 elementary music specialist in the public schools. He is patient and kind while maintaining high expectations. I would recommend Jonathan Ehresmann to anyone looking for a high quality music lesson experience.

Ryan is terrific! He is teaching our 3 kids - ranging in age from 7-12 years old - guitar lessons and our kids are thrilled and enthusiastic about their music lessons. Ryan is phenomenal and super patient! He is a true musician and his passion shows in the way he holds his lessons. Ryan is always punctual, reliable and my husband (who had been playing guitar for nearly 30 years!!) has been extremely impressed with the progress the kids are showing week after week. Ryan is truly THE best.

My kids have been taking guitar, bass, and drum lessons with Mike for several years. We live in Minneapolis part-time so the kids have lessons both in person, when we are in town, and online when we are out of town. Mike is excellent in both forums. My kids spend all week looking forward to their lessons with Mike. I never have to ask them to practice; the homework Mike assigns is apparently so much fun, they race to their instruments every day and walk around the house with their guitars. As a parent, my favorite thing about Mike is how thoughtful and flexible he is. My kids are very different from one another and do not conform to any standard music curriculum. In other words, they require quite a bit of extra work on a music teacher's behalf. This has never troubled Mike. He provides each of my kids with customized music lessons that work for each child! Including a variety of music theory that is way beyond anything I studied in my many years of piano and theory lessons. We feel incredibly lucky to have Mike in our kids' lives.

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!

CJ is an amazing teacher. My daughter has been with her for almost two years now and she keeps completing her method books and moving on to the next. CJ is kind, pleasant, and a wonderful musician and has helped my daughter to become very good at the piano.
