My 9 year old daughter has been taking guitar lessons with Julie for a year. She has progressed nicely and really enjoys the lessons. The end of the year recital was wonderfully entertaining and a great goal for my daughter to work towards. Julie has been easy to communicate with and I have already recommended her to other mothers.
Excellent guitar instructor/teacher. Always on-time with appointments. Great attitude and patience.
I started taking guitar lessons from Bob around 9 months ago. Prior to that, I had been self-training for around 3 years. Thanks to Bob's methodical way of teaching, I feel that I have made more progress in past 9 months than I had in the 3 years before that. Bob's teaching focuses heavily on music theory, and that itself was a boon for me. Knowing the theory not only opened my horizons to improvisation, but it also helped me write music on my own. In addition to that, Bob is invested in every aspect of the development of my musical skills, including my playing technique, precision and--last but not the least--finesse of playing. There's a difference in playing guitar for x number of years, and playing guitar in a way that's worthy of recording in a studio or performing in front of a live audience. Bob's lessons have made that difference more obvious to me than they ever were. Lastly, Bob also customizes the lessons based on my immediate requirements. So, if I have to learn a particular song to cover, or compose something for my band, Bob gives that as much importance as I would. In all, I'd recommend Bob to anybody who's serious about guitaring, and wants help in taking their guitaring to the level of a professional.
I have been taking guitar lessons from Bill for about 7 months. Being an older student, I was very nervous, but Bill quickly put me at ease! Bill listens to my goals and directs our lessons towards attaining them, with a teaching style that is full of humor and patience! I would highly recommend Bill to anyone interested in learning the guitar!
Just started doing a few lessons for guitar but have plans to do singing lessons as well. He is versatile and flexible and is working on what I need for the goals I have. Great guy and worth the money so far.
I'm enjoying taking guitar lessons from Brian. Brian is knowledgeable, patient, and makes the lessons fun.
My first guitar instructor was my dad back when I was about ten years old. Fast forward about thirty years to 2003 when I started taking guitar lessons from Steve. You learn more than just playing a guitar with Steve. He teaches you how to read music and about music theory. You will appreciate other genres of music and maybe even a different instrument or two. I now have a mandolin and ukelele (along with a few guitars) that Steve is also teaching me how to play. I started lessons with Steve on a whime and am glad that I did. It has been a wonderful experience learning more about music and how to play an instrument. And I owe Steve a great deal of thanks and credit for making this experience fun.
Owen really works well with my son. He has found ways to connect with him and the best approaches to teach him guitar - at his pace. I would highly recommend Owen to any child or adult!
Love working with Jonathan! He is a total professional! Always punctual, always prepared for each lesson. Furthermore, he begins teaching with the fundamentals of the guitar. He emphasizes understanding how to hold the guitar, how to use timing ect. He is both an excellent instructor for beginners through full on professional players. I highly recommend Jonathan any any group to have as an instructor..
I began taking voice lessons from Peter Hostage in May and have been highly satisfied with my decision to do so. If you are considering taking music lessons with Mr. Hostage, know that you can expect a high level of professionalism, a relaxed atmosphere, and most importantly, quality musical instruction. As someone who began singing at an early age, I have had the opportunity to sing both individually and as part of numerous groups. In just three weeks Peter has introduced me to technique that I had not been exposed in my 10+ years singing. I am confident that continued lessons with Mr. Hostage will enhance my vocal ability. The lessons are definitely worth the investment!
just what we'd hoped to find. Josh is professional and flexible, passionate about his work and he passes that love of music on in his lessons.
Had a really good experience with Arnie. He was very flexible on the timing and came prepared with some sheet music for some songs that I had expressed interest in learning. Overall, very friendly and patient with me as I bumbled my way through ukulele for the first time. Learned a lot about how to hold the instrument, strumming patterns, and reading music and general know-how about the instrument. Highly recommend Arnie, speaking as a beginning ukulele student.
Al is a fantastic instructor. He is very helpful and very patient. He breaks down each step to make it as simple as possible to learn how to play as well as sets the pace of the lesson to fit your needs. Overall, his lessons have helped push me towards becoming a serious guitar player and he is a great guy!
I've had the pleasure of witnessing Jacob's musicianship and enthusiasm for the art and highly recommend those interested in taking guitar lessons to drop him a line!
Amazing guitar teacher. Top notch instructor. I highly recommend Byron if your are interested in learning the guitar.
I play rock songs and cater to the students interests and expectations, my guitar lessons are not rigidly framed but flexibly outlined to allow the student to progress on there own with the benefit of an instructor as reference and guidance.

My name is Adam Audet, I am a high school senior who is studying to go to college to teach music theory at a high school level. I can teach the basics of guitar right through to advanced theory and songwriting. If you are interested, please give me a call, thanks. (I teach in half-hour intervals but I can extend the lesson to however long you want, I charge $15 a lesson.)
I have been playing guitar for over 9 years now and have been giving lessons for about a year. I am looking to expand my business and my experience includes funk, rock, blues, and jazz.
