My granddaughter likes her teacher, Zach. She enjoys the guitar lessons. We are very happy with everything, Would highly recommend.
My experience with has been very positive. Alex was prompt with his replies to my questions as I was searching for the guitar lesson that was right for me. I am having fun at the guitar lessons and am learning what I want at the pace that works for me.
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!!
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.
My six year daughter has been taking piano lessons with Christian for about a month now. I am so impressed with everything he has taught her! Christian is a very talented musician,but more importantly he is a exceptional teacher!
Mike is supportive and professional. He has introduced my daughter to many different types of piano music and helped her continue to love music by teaching to her strengths and not putting unnecessary pressure on her.
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!
Over all Dave is a great teacher. So if you are looking to do guitar lessons at the Guitar Shop I recommend Dave
Josh does a great job teaching young adults and kids guitar lessons, and brings a passionate appreciation for all types of music to the lessons. Whether just beginning, or looking to improve your skills, Josh can help anyone improve their talents and broaden their musical horizon. Definitely would recommend Josh as a guitar instructor.
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
Mr. Williams was very patient with my daughter and very detailed with his explanation of understanding how the instrument (Guitar) works and why it is nessesscary to practice. He is doing a great job with her and I have recommended him to all my friends!
My son began taking trombone lessons from Andrew in 5th grade. This is his 5 year of lessons. My son looks forward to the lessons, and his ability continues to grow. Andrew developed a quick rapport with my son, and is able to work through difficult techniques and overall improve my son's performance with different exercises. Andrew is very knowlegable, enthusiastic and supportive. We plan on continuing to use Andrew as long as we have a trombone player!
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.
Jon has many qualities that make him a great guitar instructor to our 12 year old daughter. He is a good listener, patient and goal oriented. Our daughter struggled to make time to practice and find motivation to continue to grow in the guitar, but gaining Jon as her instructor gave her the extra encouragement she needed to feel excited and invested in guitar again.
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.
