My son has been taking guitar lessons with Shane for several years. Shane is always very supportive and encouraging which has really motivated my son to stick with it and work to get better. Shane has used a good mix of traditional "book lessons" with examples of current and classic rock songs that my son has selected. This has helped him learn the fundamentals while playing songs he knows and enjoys and has selected for himself. Finally, Shane has been very flexible as far as scheduling; he keeps an up-to-date on-line calendar that helps when schedules change. I would highly recommend Shane for anyone looking for a guitar instructor.
My daughter has been taking piano lessons with Carly since May 2013, after taking a year-long break with another teacher. A happy parent referred us to Carly and I convinced my daughter to give piano another try, before giving it up altogether. I can honestly say that Carly brought the joy of learning and playing piano back to my daughter. My daughter can be very shy and Carly took the time to get to know her and they have formed a great teacher-student relationship. Carly motivates her with fun music, encouraging words and makes her eager to learn, rather than look at piano practice as a chore. I am very impressed with how far my daughter has come, in a short time, with her piano playing. I have gotten to see Carly play piano (and sing!) and she is an extremely talented young woman, that any child (or adult) would be lucky to learn from. She has always provided us with good communication, shown flexibility when needed and I highly recommend her to other parents.
Our son has been taking guitar lessons with James Easteppe for 5 years. Paul truly enjoys working with him. James is very professional, prompt, courteous, friendly, knowledgeable and resourceful. We are very grateful to James.
Our 8 year old son has been taking guitar lessons with Justin for a year and he loves it! Justin is so supportive and helpful in writing, singing and playing. We have been so pleased with our son's experience that my husband has signed up for lessons this fall. We couldn't say enough great things about Justin!
Paul is a great guitar teacher! He is always very friendly, patient, and encouraging during our lessons. He is also always available via text in case you have any guitar related questions, which is super helpful and generous. It’s evident that he truly cares about his students’ progress, and he does a great job planning each lesson to ensure his students get the most out of each week.
I took guitar lessons from Jeff for a while back in the 90's. I've recently started taking lessons from him again. He's a fantastic musician and teacher. Couple that with being a very cool, laid back person and you have Jeff. It doesn't matter if you are a complete beginner or an advanced player who needs work on your theory, he can help you to improve. I've been playing on and off for 35 years and had many guitar instructors. Jeff is one of only TWO that I recommend without hesitation. Give him a call, you won't regret it.
First lesson; wife and I back to back. Kelli is very approachable, has a beautiful voice and is a good match for us regarding song/music styles. We're both happy about how we're starting out; seems like a good approach for us. I already play guitar and need vocal help for song/praise/worship scenarios as well as strength for public speaking; Kelli is focused on our needs and interest.
My boys love their guitar lessons with Adam. He tailors each lesson to their personalities / music likes and is very patient. He has really inspired them to become better guitar players. He has also been very flexible with lesson time/dates as the boys schedules are a bit hectic with sports / school, etc. So glad we found Adam!
Philip is an outstanding and encouraging guitar teacher! I've improved so much in a short time. I really appreciate his expertise and patience. Highly recommend.
Nelson has been a wonderful teacher. He is a very talented guitarist with a deep knowledge of music of all kinds. His lessons have provided exactly what I needed to expand my musical vocabulary, improve my chops, and to make playing guitar more enjoyable than before. Highly recommended.
If you want to learn how to play the guitar from a passionate, dedicated musician, then you have come to the right place! I work one-on-one with students of any age (beginning-intermediate) to help them get the feel for how to form chords correctly and then how to turn those chords into songs, using different strumming patterns and techniques...and have fun doing it! My pricing is reasonable, and I have good package deals for new students. I am looking for those students who really want to learn the craft of guitar playing so they can enjoy it and even play out at local open mics if they want to with me! I play out with a couple of bands, including a duo with my wife - see the link above. Let me know if this is something you have always wanted to do - I can help you make it happen.
Have you ever desired to play Beethoven's Fur Elise of Sonatas, the Theme to Star Wars or Harry Potter, or just Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star? Have you ever wanted a talent that will relieve stress, dazzle others, or enable you to play what you hear on the radio? You want to learn the piano, or give a child the gift of music that will last a lifetime. I can help. I teach beginning piano to all ages. The first lesson is a free trial, so the student can evaluate my teaching. I can also teach viola lessons. I can also refer the students to more advanced (and expensive) teachers when they are past the point that I can teach them. I also play the pipe organ for Tabernacle Baptist in Raleigh and accompany 3 choirs on piano and organ.
In addition to the prestigious institutions that I have attended, I have also had the opportunity to teach many clients. One of my greatest experiences and proudest moments was being selected to be a professor's assistant at my University, which meant I would be lecturing a course to freshman students regarding important, difficult concepts. In addition to the students I have fought before this, I was able to greatly improve my lecture and teaching ability at the university level, and regularly receive feedback from established professors at the University.

I've been playing music since age 4. I consider myself a semi-professional and have had numerous interactions playing with great musicians from all over the globe. I take a hands-on approach and can tailor my style to accompany yours.
Been playing guitar for 35 years and I'm patient, direct and easygoing with guitar students.
I do private piano lessons in my home. I teach lesson, pedagogy, technique, and theory without the threat and stress.
I am an excellent teacher. Teaching over online, such as Skype, would be great. I am experienced with fingerstyle guitar such as Reverend Gary Davis and Blind Blake. I also play old-time fiddle and banjo. I teach beginner to advanced students.
