I have been taking jazz guitar lessons from Dom for almost a year and a half now. His particular approach to teaching music is very refreshing from all others I've encountered before. Dom has a certain way of finding a student's particular sound on their instrument and personalizing each lesson to better bring out this sound. My experience so far has been completely positive and I look forward to more lessons.

Phenomenal musician, great teacher, cool cat - I rate David First INFINITY STARS. I've studied music here and there, but it wasn't until I started taking bass lessons with David a few years ago that it all came together for me. He explains music theory in a way I can understand and translate to actual practice that is not a chore, it is fun and addictive! Besides developing technical skill, Dave also helped me grow as a musician by getting over feeling awkward jamming with other people. I eventually felt comfortable enough to audition for bands and ended up in a fun one, playing out in the city even! David was there for my first gig, too. My husband was so impressed with my progress, he started guitar lessons last year and has come so far, it is amazing. We feel like Grasshoppers to David's Master Po. He is the best, ok I'll stop now, you get it.

I can't say enough fantastic things about Christopher. He taught my daughter in home guitar lessons. He is professional, responsible, easy to work with and a genius on guitar. He taught my daughter so much and she plays beautifully. I would recommend him to anyone!

I took lessons from Jimi for string bass and later for guitar. Through his lessons, I learned how to do more than just read notes on a page. I learned the other important skills of improvising and jamming with others. If I ever had a problem, Jimi would notice and help me work through it. I'm now able to jam out to jazz music on bass and guitar, and it's all thanks to Jimi.

Josh is clearly very skilled with a guitar and has taught many students before. He will tailor the lessons towards what you would most want to learn, and in that sense he is very flexible. He is extremely friendly and punctual. Even in my first lesson he was able to help my technical ability improve dramatically, and I'm much more confident of being able to pick up new songs quickly. I look forward every week to the lessons.

Guitar lessons can be boring, but not with Steve. Steve's guitar playing its Eddie Van Halen's level and best of all is that he is very humble and a funny teacher. He will take his time to explain you note by note on the entire fretboard. I always have fun learning new scales, arpeggios, triads etc. with Steve. You will actually get exited every time a guitar lesson with him is coming up. A guitar instructor that actually knows how to play pretty much anything on guitar, but if you are into Rock, Classic Rock, Hard Rock, Metal, Jazz and Jazz Fusion, you should definitely take guitar lessons with Steve. - Winston Beast Master (Khiazma band)

Verified review

I briefly took guitar lessons from Josh. I wanted to learn to play with other musicians and improvise, and his jazz background is what caught my attention. The sessions were informative and Josh was very encouraging. I had to stop unexpectedly but what I learned in the few lessons I took was very helpful and got me out of the rut I fall into while practicing on my own.

Dan was so flexible in arranging a "birthday gift" of guitar lessons for our daughter. Though the schedules haven't worked out yet for the lessons, my daughter is really looking forward to such. Friendly, and approachable man. A pleasure to deal with!

I had attempted to learn the guitar via YouTube for about 6 months and continued to struggle. Decided to give Josh a shot and have been thoroughly impressed. He is a young, down-to-earth normal guy with tons knowledge and enthusiasm. He actually listens to what I want to learn and structures his lessons and materials around this. He always comes well prepared and teaching comes natural to him. Overall extremely happy with Josh as a guitar coach (contrary to all the others I've tried!)

I’d never even picked up an instrument before and Steve taught me guitar! He’s patient and reliable, and music is his passion so he is very easy to talk to and learn from. Great guy and now a great friend as well! 🎰 Thanks again for everything! -JT πŸŽΈπŸ’ŽπŸ’ŽπŸ’ŽπŸ’ŽπŸ’ŽπŸŽΈ

Awesome teacher, a lot of guitar teachers dont focus on theory or teaching you how to understand guitar and instead focus on songs and I'm glad to say Kyle isn't one of those teachers

Mr. Connor has been working with my children the last two years. He is an amazing teacher who is very patient and kind to my children. He is teaching them Chinese, singing, drum and guitar. Unlike other teacher we had in the past, Mr. Connor incorporate games and songs into all his lessons which makes language learning much more interest. My children adores Mr. Connor and looking forward to work with him every time.

Brian is an outstanding teacher. He puts his love of music into teaching. My son Jacob has had other teachers in the past but none compared to Brian. Jacob loves to play the guitar, knows how to read music and plays beautiful music, thanks to Brian.

Verified review

I had been writing songs on the guitar for a year and a half when I started lessons with Natalia. Meeting weekly on Skype/Zoom she had me writing more and better stuff while also working on guitar technique. After working four months with her I had one of my songs win a song writing contest here in Seattle which led to a CD and paid concert gig! I couldn't have imagined I'd be writing at this level so quickly but working with a professional like Natalia can really accelerate your learning. I'm sure I'll be taking lessons from her years from now
