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.
We brought our son to James in Aug of this year and have seen improvements in his playing within weeks. We highly recommend him for guitar lessons. A O’Hara
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.
Paul is an excellent teacher. I started lessons with basically no experience playing the guitar, but I felt comfortable with him. His demeanor is welcoming and this makes learning less intimidating. On my first lesson, I could see that he is very patient and takes the time the break the learning process down, making the experience fun. Lessons are designed based on individual goals and I can see that he has the passion to help all of his students achieve those goals.
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!
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.
I have taken a few guitar lessons and i am thoroughly enjoying
I have taken guitar lessons from Kyle for 16 months. He is knowledgeable and interested in sharing his knowledge. He is dependable and always prepared and ready to teach; he is not a time waster. I have learned so much about music from Kyle and feel fortunate to have him as a guitar teacher. I'd definitely recommend him to anyone interested learning to play guitar.
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.

During a trip to Disney World as a teenager, I was mesmerized by all of the foreign languages that I heard and strove to master one. My mother purchased me a Spanish program, and off I went. Since then, I have gone on to master four other romance languages, and I love helping others to discover the joys of different languages and cultures. I also love to play guitar. I have been playing since 1991 and have found it to be a gift that never stops giving. I feel that one is never truly alone if he or she is capable of playing an instrument. My love of Spanish and guitar has led me to a very enjoyable career. I taught Spanish for 13 years at a preparatory academy, and I also have taught beginning guitar lessons for seven years at the academy. On the side, I am delighted to give private lessons for both the guitar and Spanish language. (LinkedIn site and resume will be gladly provided upon request.)
