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.
Tristan has been teaching our 11 year old son for over a year, and has made learning to play guitar a fun and enjoyable experience that he looks forward to each week. Tristan has a great demeanor working with kids, and our son's growth as a musician attests to his skill. Highly recommended.
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.
Chris is very professional, responsive and friendly. My daughter can't wait for her next guitar lesson!
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..
We have known Dennis Shafer for almost two years, in that time he has taught my now 10 year old son to play the clarinet and more recently the saxophone. He also managed and led a small group of students to form a band; all of which were beginners in their instruments. Dennis is a fantastic teacher, he is passionate and enthused and very much an inspiration for my son. His lessons are fun and he introduces different types of music. Thomas has developed well with Dennis and accomplished much. I would highly recommend him to others.
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.
I've been taking guitar lessons from Billy for over 3 years and I have learned so much. He makes the lessons easy and fun.
For the past few years, Joe was paramount in helping me realize my love and potential for music, particularly with the guitar. When I first came to Joe for lessons he was incredibly flexible with scheduling and was very attentive to exploring areas of the guitar that I not only wanted to learn, but that he knew would challenge me to improve my skills and further my understanding of the underlying roots of the music. Joe was always focused during the lessons, making sure I was really picking up on what was being taught for the entirety of the sessions. Often, Joe would follow up with me during the week between sessions to see how my progress was going and to answer any questions I had which proved to be extremely helpful. Overall, my experience with Joe was excellent, his attention to detail regarding the music as well as his great focus on making sure I was truly understanding the lessons made the learning process not only exciting and fun but enormously fruitful. Joe was fun, passionate and worked extremely hard in his role as my guitar teacher and I truly appreciate all the time he spent to help me improve my skills and become closer to my passion for music.
I wanted to learn guitar. I found a teacher that not only taught me the basics , I left knowing how to play my favorite song. Richard Teaches classes out of the Jam Spot 14 Teal Road Wakefield. R&P music owner Richard Papa is a true professional and is a pleasure to have as a teacher. His vast knowledge of music and guitar impressed me so much that I signed on for 1 year of lessons. I love his slogan "Learn today, rock tomorrow." im ready to take on the world and be the next Randy Rhoads and Angus Young!! R&P music : 339-224-8986 rpguitar.net regards Patrick Tibbetts
I bought my husband lessons for Christmas and then again for his birthday. My husband is an intermediate student and LOVED learning from Randy. Randy was prompt in replying, his schedule is flexible, and he is a highly knowledgeable and enthusiastic musician. I would highly recommend him, and all he has to offer!
