Verified review

James not only teaches music, but teaches you to love it, understand it, and embrace the creativity within. He is by far a gem in the rusty world of lessons, as the classes are more free flowing and open then the traditional "trying-hard-to-actually-enjoy-this" type. You can immediately conclude when walking into the studio that he is a true lover of music... all music, and all instruments! I had a lot of fun and plan on taking more lessons in the future. Overall, I highly recommended Music People Studio for all ages, levels, and interests. Thanks again James!

I have only had two lesson with James, but from the two lessons I have learned quite a bit surround music theory and proper voice technique. His industry knowledge is excellent and his plan for voice coaching is very thorough. Looking forward to future lessons with James!

I took weekly guitar lessons with John in Charlotte. He was great. As an adult learner, and someone who had never picked up a guitar before, I found that I progressed quickly, and John was always there for guidance and quickly addressed any difficulty or trouble I was having. I would highly recommend him!!

We have had a great experience with John. Our 9 year old looks forward to his weekly guitar lessons and is anxious to come home from school each day to practice and build on what he has learned. John is kind, patient, knowledgeable, thorough and professional. We are very happy

I hired Clayton for guitar lessons (for adults) and have not been disappointed in the slightest. He was and is very quick to respond to inquiries and was the most qualified for the best price of anyone I found. We've since had our first lesson, and it went great. He was fantastic at pushing the pace of learning at just the right speed. He even brought a stand and book along with him because I had neither! Looking forward to our next lesson.

I've hired Clayton to give guitar lessons to my husband as a gift based on the good reviews. We have had him three times and so far so good! Clayton is patient and passionate, and also flexible around schedules and very professional. I can only recommend him.

I have been taking guitar lessons with Jeff for 10 months. He is an outstanding instructor. He adapts his lessons to my capabilities, is encouraging but also challenges me to go the extra mile. He is extremely patient, when one approach doesn't work, he finds others to keep me engaged and feeling successful. I highly recommend Jeff! You won't be disappointed!

I had a great experience with Jeff. He makes learning the guitar fun. He is good at figuring out your level quickly and building upon that experience. He is an exceptional guitar player and knows quite a bit about music theory.

I have taken guitar lessons from Chris for 6 months. He has exceeded my expectations. I am learning a lot and Chris is very helpful and patient. He readily shares his knowledge about guitar playing and provides the right amount of music theory for me. I have even gone out to see Chris at a few gigs, and really enjoy listening to him. I highly recommend Chris Jones.

My 16 year old daughter wanted to take guitar lessons for the longest time, we finally found Chris 8 months ago and it has been great! He is very patient with her and makes it a enjoyable experience for her. He takes the time to make sure to ask her what type of music she likes, which is important to her. We have been very pleased with Chris!

I've been "playing guitar" for 2 years now. When I first started I was very adamant I didn't need a teacher. I'm accomplished in other fields so I'm no stranger to hard work. I told myself if I stuck to it and practiced everyday I could become a good guitar player. Fast forward 2 years and all I had was a basic understanding of certain scales and chords, but little to no understanding of how to use them. I finally gave in and sought out a teacher. After only two lessons with Lee I've made huge forward progress with my playing. I now understand where and how to use the scales I've learned in musical compositions, arrangements, and soloing. I've also made great progress with changing chords more fluidly, which, is something I struggled with greatly. He's enthusiastic, patient, and knowledgable. I highly recommend giving Lee a try if you're looking for lessons.

Lee was an amazing guitar instructor! I wanted to play guitar almost 10 years ago because my brother played guitar & I wanted to be better than he was. I went to Lee for lessons & the rest is history! Without Lee I wouldn't be the worship leader that I became to be! Lee is one of the first people I think of for the people who have impacted my life! Highly recommend that you take lessons from Lee!

Lee is both very personable and professional in his lessons. I wouldn't be the guitar player I am today without the the skills that he taught me.

About

I have decades of playing experience. I teach all comers. I am available for cover band and jazz gigs. I play and teach all styles.

About

Students in a music school, such as Charlotte Academy of Music, have opportunities to participate in ensembles, master classes and many performances. In short, students who study at a music school receive a more well-rounded music education experience. Being part of a musical community is also highly motivating!

About

I offer guitar lessons and some Professional audio recording services. My end goal would be to equip you with the tools to play anything that you want. I also teach the fundamentals of theory and overall musicianship. You will understand the building blocks of the guitar and learn not only to play things that you hear, but create your own music and styles.

I teach my students not only the mechanics of playing the guitar or bass guitar but also how to read and understand music theory. Music is the organization of time and sound, and there is much more to being a musician than just knowing how to play the instrument.

I have owned a Seagull guitar for 2 years now and tried to teach myself with YouTube videos, but it didn't really work out. I think lessons in person would be way more helpful.
