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.

This is the first time my son is learning Piano lessons. He is in kindergarten and is very naughty. Carly knows how to accommodate him very nicely. She is very patient and makes the lessons more interesting and fun. My son always waits for Fridays because Fridays are his piano lessons. I will highly recommend her.

We started working with Justin over the summer break and we have been very pleased. Communicating and scheduling with Justin has been easy and his guitar lessons have been very helpful for our 12 year-old son.

I'm only one lesson in, but so far, I would highly recommend Tokyo. He assessed my skills quickly and set me on a clear path, giving me songs to learn that addressed my specific needs... Even provided MP3's so I could play along with the originals! He his not only a gifted guitar player, but a natural teacher who seems to genuinely enjoy the process. Thanks, Toke!

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!

I have been one of Suzanne's guitar students for several years in an evening group lesson situation at a local high school. I like Suzanne's enthusiasm and creativity in a lesson environment. I also admire how quickly she can deconstruct a song and make it playable for the class. Suzanne does an excellent job of balancing learning new songs and teaching the theory behind them without slowing down the fun. Her students seem to quickly pick up the guitar and enjoy playing it almost from day one. I especially like that there is "no fault" if an adult student has trouble finding time to practice between lessons. Of course, without practice, it is hard to improve quickly. Sometimes we work on a song that isn't one I'd choose. But this exposes me to other music genres and provides new learning elements. Suzanne asks us for input of which songs we'd like to learn, so the occassional "dud" song isn't really a problem. As the skills of the class continue to improve, it might be interesting to have class members bring a song to discuss/improve with input from their peers and Suzanne - think of a writer's workshop. For a fun guitar lesson experience, I highly recommend Suzanne.

Nelson has been a phenomenal guitar teacher so far. Very knowledgeable and a super nice guy. Challenges me and pushes my playing, but in a very amicable way. Would highly recommend.

About

I have spent the last 40 years as a professional musician touring around the world with various artists. I have spent a lot of time learning to play, as well as the music theory that goes with it. As I have been teaching for some years now, I take the time to give each student the direction and instruction he/she may need to accomplish the goal they wish to achieve.

I have a very wide range of musical influences which has helped me assist all kinds of students with their musical goals, from folk acoustic guitar to jazz piano to progressive rock to hip-hop and electronic music - I really feel at home in any setting and can relate to people of all ages and backgrounds. I play a myriad of instruments and like to help my students develop a strong understanding of the theory behind what they know so they can explore the patterns further.
