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!

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

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.

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!
