My son has ADHD and Alex has done a great job of adjusting the lesson to his needs. He also knew exactly what my son was talking about with specific music he liked. He is very versed in different genres of music.

Jeff is very accommodating to both my screwy schedule and unfocused learning style, helping me to put the pieces of the guitar puzzle together in spite of myself.

I came to thumbtack to find a guitar instructor for my fiance who has never played before but wants to learn. Colton was quick to respond and very clear about his style and approach to teaching. So far my fiance has been really impressed and loves learning from Colton. I would highly recommend Colton to any other fellas out there looking to score points with their better half.

He's flexible about his role, will fit to your needs. Has past experience fronting bands. Feel like he knows the industry and has good ideas not just for making the music, but promoting it.

Very clear, helpful instruction. Packed a lot of info into a 1/2 hour of instruction, but easy enough to work on on my own, as well. Have already scheduled another, longer lesson.

About

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.

We have been taking guitar lessons with Brian for over a year. Our 9 yr. old daughter has made great progress and can play many songs. She enjoys the lessons. I also have taken adult lessons from Brian and found them very helpful. Of course, the difficult part is finding time to practice between lessons but that is on us. The lessons are very convenient.

About

My 7 yr old son and I have been learning from Jeff for 4 months now. I can definitely say he is very good at what he does and is also very patient with beginners like us ( 40 year old & the other 7:) He has been playing for over 20 years and so knows his stuff. He is constantly trying to find ways to help us understand and learn things more easily. I have a traveling job and have had to reschedule a few times and he has always accommodated that. I strongly recommend Jeff for lessons, no matter what you sort of guitar lessons you are looking for.

About

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.

It would seem I'm being hassled to be a guitar tutor which I accept only because I love music and guitar and all that mumble jumble. I can give guitar lessons to some extent and help with stuff you want to learn. I am a lead metal guitarist by heart and so that is what I can teach best. Concerning what you want to learn and if you are already very good to the point where your pared or passed me, all I can do is point to another teacher.

Learn to play fingerstyle blues guitar like Charlie Parr and delta blues legends. I play mainly in open D and open G tunings, with and without slide, like most delta blues players. Learn to pick the rhythm with your thumb while adding melody with your fingers. As your skill increases, we'll add more complex bass rhythms and melodies.

I'm getting myself ready for school. I teach any age and just about any style.
