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.
A perfect match for my 15 year old daughter taking singing lessons. Amanda's knowledge, talent, and enthusiasm are contagious. She has fostered my daughter's confidence and developed her singing skills. I highly recommend Amanda. You become part of her singing family and she gives more than 100% of herself each lesson. I wouldn't go anywhere else!
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.
In one lesson, Tristan offered a lot of useful information about playing guitar. He also seemed to really enjoy teaching, which makes for a fun lesson. He knew I was struggling with thumb joint pain and came with strategic stretches and healthy playing technique tips to help me avoid doing further damage. He also offered exercises for memorizing notes on the guitar and introduced me to triad chords for easier playing than the barre chords I was used to. He travelled to my house on a Saturday evening, which fit great with my schedule. I highly recommend Tristan as a guitar teacher!
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.
Jacob is an all around quality individual who clearly has a passion to invest in those he comes in contact with! He is an exceptional and gifted musician and instructor. The students really connect with him and are motivated by his enthusiasm. And on top of it all, the guy can really play that guitar!! Some have a gift to play, some an ability to teach. Jacob has both! One last thing... He's also a genuinely nice guy! I would highly recommend anyone looking for a patient, passionate and exceptional music teacher to learn guitar, bass, piano and even beginner drums to experience a lesson with Jacob for themselves.
Chris is very professional, responsive and friendly. My daughter can't wait for her next guitar lesson!
We hired Jon to perform classical guitar for our wedding ceremony. We were late in the planning stages, and hadn't spent enough time thinking through the ceremony music. Jon made a number of suggestions, and we found several selections we liked. Knowing he was experienced with previous weddings, and confident, was reassuring, especially since some of the details were still being worked out at the last minute. In the end, his playing was fantastic, and the music perfectly suited our procession, setting a beautiful tone for an unforgettable evening. Jon is an excellent musician and a true professional, and I can't recommend him highly enough.
Mr. Dennis has both the ability and patience to teach students of all grades and competency level. He makes learning fun and my daughter looks forward to her Sax lessons every week. Mr. Dennis pro-actively puts music ensembles together to showcase his students work and boast their confidence. He also suggests outside programs for the kids that both challenges their comfort zones and expands their musical horizons.
Energetic, very knowledgable, able to change speeds to the level of the student needs to maximize lessons. Wonderful personality. Just seems to have great passion for this.
Heavily experimented and greatly theoretically grounded guitarist delivers very interesting lessons for those who desire to go beyond the basic "pop song" playing
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!
Mark is an exceptional teacher. He has an immense knowledge of music theory and knows how to taylor his lessons to fit my skill and needs. I look forward to Mark's lessons because he always challenges me to learn something new and he makes it fun. Over the past 6 years he has brought my playing ability and music knowledge far past what i thought was possible. I highly recommend Mark for any music lessons, especially guitar!
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.
Frank provided an excellent experience that I've never had before. I went to him for intermediate lessons on guitar improvisation. First he took my guitar and explained how to properly set up the little things I'd never think to adjust. Then he explained to me some music theory concepts that completely changed the way I thought about the fundamentals of music. The lesson ended with him giving me some very practical, feasible practice to do in my own time. He'd be worth the money just to hear him give a quick lecture on what music is all about. Also, check out his website - this guys clearly lives a life of creativity and pursues his curiosities. I would definitely recommend him to anyone who is looking to step further into a life of music and self-expression.
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!
We teach beginners to intermediate, regardless of age. We provide charts, ear training, chord study and music theory. We also offer song structure and soloing.
You can play the music you most enjoy. Starting at your present skill level (or at the very beginning), I'll help you develop coordination, improve reading, learn music theory and play with confidence. Learning happens when you're relaxed and engaged, so that's what I strive for. I teach all ages and any style at reasonable rates.
