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 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!

I was looking for someone who could teach my husband the guitar. Tokyo is a perfect match. Not only is he an excellent guitarist and singer, he is a wonderful teacher and person! And he looks like he enjoys what he does!

Vernon is an excellent piano instructor. I began two years ago with half hour lessons and am now taking hour lessons weekly. His focus on proper technique, lessons, and lots of music, along with his positive and encouraging approach, have all been extremely helpful. He uses additional material and media to support the learning process (learning jazz soloing along with standards and audio comping). I appreciate that he enjoys teaching and constantly encourages his students' progress, yet listens and helps when there are difficulties. Vernon has made learning piano enjoyable and I have learned a lot.

Kelli has helped my son improve tremendously not only with his voice, but with his confidence as well. She is great to work with, very flexible and patient. She goes out of her way to individualize the lessons for the student. Also provides public performance opportunites for her students to gain exposure and experience.

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

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.

Gilbert Neal taught our daughter guitar for a couple of years by coming to our house for weekly lessons. She became very proficient quickly under his tutelage, and continues to play as an adult. He was easy to work with and willing to advise us about equipment and resources as well as providing instruction.

About

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.)
