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!
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.
My son took guitar lessons at center stage, we never had any complaints. Great teachers, great pricing, and Rob is great guy! Would highly recommend using center stage for your music lessons!
Having been entirely self-taught on electric bass for many years, I've found it to be a breath of fresh air to have Andy as a teacher. In just two lessons he's helped me to push past my long-held plateau, vastly improving my technical playing as well as my musicianship with simple but intelligent advice. He's punctual and amiable, and is very encouraging of improvisation and the development of one's own personal style.
I've been taking guitar lessons from Paul Warren at the Raleigh Music Academy for over 4 years. In that time I've been able to go from not knowing how to play to learning and playing songs that I listen to regularly. Each students lessons are tailored to what they are interested in, with the instructors guiding students and suggesting techniques or songs that can help them improve. There are two things that really set the RMA apart: First are the top-notch artists that they are able to host for workshops and clinics. I've seen Greg Howe, Andy Timmons, Andy Wood, Chris Poland and Guthrie Govan perform and instruct, all in an intimate setting. Second are the monthly student shows. All students have the opportunity to play a song with other students in a live setting to family and friends. This is a great learning experience and gives validation to the time spent learning new techniques and songs. If you are looking to learn guitar, bass, percussion, piano, banjo, mandolin, fiddle or voice, the RMA is the place to go. I'm glad I did.
Adam taught guitar, bass, drums, and piano at my school. He has an easygoing teaching manner and the students enjoyed studying with him.
FJ brings a wealth of practical experience and education to his bass teaching. He can teach music theory, a rare thing in my experience and essential for a bass player. The music I play doesn't have any written bass lines so you have to invent it yourself (which is part of the fun). He also knows many styles of bass playing so he can take a student in any direction they wish. If you watch him perform, you can see him do all the things you want to learn - so just ask. And finally, FJ is just an all around nice guy, so he's easy to spend time with, ask questions of and accept direction from.
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.
Doug is a world class musician with a great talent for tailoring lessons to just what each student needs to reach her goals.
Working with Alan was great - he is super knowledgeable, patient, and good about assigning practice homework. His explanations to a beginning guitar student like myself about chords, finger placement, etc. were very easy to understand and helped me to grasp concepts quicker. Highly recommend!
We received quality instruction in a wonderful atmosphere.
I went in for my first voice lesson tonight. I had no idea what to expect and was a bit nervous. Jill took me through a few postural and breathing exercises. After that, she played some keys and listened to my ability to match my voice to them. Before the lesson, I was super nervous to sing in front of a stranger, but by the end of the lesson I sang a song in front of her! (one of my choosing) I am really looking forward to the next lesson - my confidence is already improving!

I do in home lessons in the Raleigh and surrounding areas, particularly south of Raleigh around Clayton, Garner, Angier, Fuquay Varina, and as far south as Benson and Smithfield. I go as far as Zebulon east, Wake Forest north, and Durham and Cary West. I try to schedule lessons in a way that I'm not zigzagging back and forth all day. The convenience of your location and time with respect to my other lessons for that day, may increase or decrease your rate. My standard rates are: $30/30mins, $35/45mins, $40/60mins, $50/90mins, and $60/120mins per visit. I'm 28 years old and have been playing guitar since age 12. I am mostly self taught. I help people understand their instrument in a way that when they feel they are ready, can continue teaching themselves long after I am gone. I am very patient and easy to get along with. I look forward to hearing from you. Thanks, Corey

I teach guitar and bass to music lovers of all ages. As a performer, I am constantly learning new songs, and consequently, my musical vocabulary is expanding daily. I am able to explain music theory in a down-to earth manner, and I make learning guitar and bass fun! I like to teach students how to play their favorite songs, and I can also set up my students' guitars for free, so they are as easy to play as possible.
