I just started taking guitar lessons - I've taken just two lessons to be exact. I was a little worried when I decided to look for an instructor because I am 60 years old and am mostly interested in learning to play contemporary worship music. Alex Born was a great match. He is a church musician and seems to be very experienced in the type of music I want to learn. The other thing I appreciate is that rather than give you music that he wants you to learn, he has you bring music that you want to learn and he helps you learn to play it. I enjoy his friendly, casual style of lessons and I expect I will be a student of his for quite some time.

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.

When my daughter Cady was 9 years old she started taking lessons from Bruce at a music store near our home. Unfortunately, the music store went out of business after about 8 months of lessons. Cady decided to take violin through her school. After two years of violin lessons Cady wanted to resume guitar lessons. Bruce was so good with her the first time around that I decided to call him. She was very shy at first but Bruce is so good with her that she warmed up to him rather quickly. Having a great teacher like Bruce makes lessons fun for Cady. He's very patient with her and makes sure that she understands each lesson. When Cady had a special request of learning some Christmas songs Bruce emailed the music to me so that I could print it for her. He has been coming to our home once a week now for about 6 months. His prices per lesson are very reasonable. He's always a little early (which is really on time) and he's very accommodating with our schedule changes. I highly recommend Bruce for guitar lessons!

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.

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.

    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

    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.

    Maria's passion for music is very apparent every single week that we show up for lessons. I've been so fortunate to watch my daughter go from a little girl taking lessons to a young adult continually working on her passion. The lessons now are a true collaboration between teacher and student where ideas are exchanged and a deeper thought goes into conveying the artistic meaning of the song. Music has become my child's passion, largely due to Maria's guidance and compassion. I'm so grateful we found Maria to pass on this beautiful gift.

    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.
