I find the guitar lessons I have with Dom are very comprehensive and personable. He is very in detail and thorough. He makes sure that I know everything there is to know about playing guitar, before I attempt to play anything that's too advanced for my level. Location is relatively easy to get to, venue is comfy and classes are affordable.

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.

Michelle is great with kids. Our 7-year old daughter loves her piano lessons and always looks forward to them. More important, we can hear that she is really learning and making great progress. Two of her school friends have started lessons with Michelle after we recommended her.

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 guitar lessons from Jimi on a fairly constant basis for about 3 years. The best and most unique feature of his teaching style is the balance between the freedom Jimi gives students in what they want to achieve musically, and the structure that he provides students with that will allow them to reach that goal. Personally, I learned advanced rock and jazz guitar techniques and improvisation from Jimi, and I am very happy with my current level of ability. Especially helpful is his extremely coherent way of explaining often over-complicated music theory. Jimi treats his students with an optimistic and respectful attitude, and creates a very welcoming and encouraging environment for the music student.

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)

We had our first piano lesson with Sean and he was wonderful. We met him at the studio and he was right on time and very professional. Sean worked great with the twins and took time to evaluate their playing ability. We will be working with Sean moving forward and are expecting great results.

Chris has recently started giving guitar lessons to my 14 year old son who really loves classic rock. Chris immediately started out with songs that my son chose which has been a great approach. My son is really loving playing so far and I look forward to him continuing to work with Chris. Chris is also friendly, responsive and very professional.

Kevin is a great guitar teacher! He's a very experienced musician and it's fun listening to him talk about music. His enthusiasm and passion are evident. He's quite academic about his teaching and focuses on teaching the basics, integrating theory and technique. I am a beginner guitar player and Kevin has been methodically teaching me the basics rather than jumping into playing songs right away. He's laying a solid foundation which is very important if one is interested in learning to play properly. He is very patient and overall it has been a pleasure learning guitar from him.

I found the search for classical guitar instruction rather daunting until I discovered the website of James Lorusso (jameslorusso.com). My initial contact from several other entities and individuals proved far too commercially driven for my taste. I was interested in taking formal lessons and learning how to read music not just learning from tablature or playing by ear which I had done for over fifty years. A few hours following my e-mail inquiry I was surprised and gratified to receive a personal call from Mr. Lorusso and was in his studio the very next day. I was immediately impressed with this gentleman. His warmth and finely honed pedagogic approach were so apparent it was only a matter of minutes into that introductory lesson I became convinced I had found the quintessential teacher a true pedagogue and a man of such talent and encyclopedic musical knowledge I was drawn to him like a magnet. Seldom in life does one come across a resource as substantial and charismatic as this gentleman look no further, you have just found a genius who's also as warm as the day is long! My name is Tom I'm 67 years of age and feel like a kid when I'm in Jims studio. In three months he has given me gifts of learning and brought me to places I thought were unachievable. He will do the same for you!

I've had the pleasure of working with Kyle for a few years and can say he is an extremely talented guitar player and awesome teacher. He breaks complex concepts down in a compassionate way for beginners and can even challenge seasoned guitar players. He's great with players of all levels from beginner to advanced. His lessons are fun and engaging, and you can tell he's passionate about music and seeing his students thrive. Highly recommended!

I first met John when my son started taking guitar lessons with him. Sitting in on my son’s lessons I was incredibly impressed with not just John’s knowledge of music and theory but his gift of teaching. I, myself, was a self-taught guitarist whose knowledge of chords, theory and technique was severely limited. I had taken lessons with a few instructors in the past to try and gain a better understanding and become a more confident and competent player but could never quite connect. In the short time I have been taking lessons with John I have made great improvements. His ability to clearly explain and make sense of each lesson has allowed me to make the necessary connections, filling in my gaps of knowledge, and allowing me to make great progress in every facet of the guitar from chords and theory to picking and strumming techniques. John is incredibly talented as both a musician and a teacher. I would recommend him to anyone looking to bring their playing to a higher level.

Jim’s lessons strike a perfect balance between practical, real-world skills and theoretical knowledge. What started for me as “I'll take a few lessons to get some basic skills on guitar as a second instrument” turned into four years of serious study covering many, many concepts, styles and techniques. His ability to accurately read a students skill level and the direction of their interests (as well as his sense of humor) enables him to build a curriculum that stays interesting, challenging and fun. Thanks to Jim, I have a much more complete understanding of the guitar, and of music in general. Ethan Brooklyn, NY

I am a complete beginner on the guitar, so it was daunting when I decided to start taking lessons. But Kiyoshi has been kind and patient and energizing from the get-go, never rushing me or making me feel overwhelmed, which music teachers have done in the past. I really enjoy the way he intersperses scales and chords with learning songs and solos of my choosing.

Lou is an incredibly accomplished guitarist who studied with, among others, Eddie Simon (Paul Simon's brother). I needed some structured guitar lessons that would allow me to understand chord structure better. Lou took me through understanding and practicing simple scales through more advanced chords. He always came prepared with charts and tablature for me to keep and his fee was incredibly reasonable. Plus he's really funny. :-)
