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.

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!

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.

Ms. Gwin is excellent and my daughter and I are happy and very fortunate to have found her for piano lessons. From day 1, she has been very accommodating, knowledgeable and passionate, which is reflected through her teaching. My daughter is only 4 years old and Ms. Gwin was able to creatively adapt concepts to meet her current level of understanding. With just 2 months of instruction, meeting once per week for 30 minutes, my daughter has already mastered playing "Mary Had a Little Lamb", as well as, some piano theory. My daughter looks forward to her weekly sessions and I am very pleased with the talent that she is so quickly developing.

Josh has been teaching my 8-year-old son guitar lessons for the past several weeks. He has been very patient with my son, who is an absolute beginner, and has also done a great job conveying his enthusiasm for music to him. He is also punctual and has done a great job of keeping us apprised of his availability. We've been very happy working with Josh.

My daughter’s guitar lesson with Stelios is one of our favorite parts of our week. I discovered Brooklyn Guitar Studio on Craigslist while looking for guitar lessons for my seven year old daughter. Stelios Michas invited us for an introductory lesson. He placed a guitar in my daughter's lap and a pick in her right hand and encouraged her to play and strum while he asked her about songs and singers she liked to listen to. Following the lesson, before we could cross the hall to the elevator, my daughter asked, “Could we come back again?” We were sold. Stelios was helpful in guiding me to buy a guitar for my daughter. By the end of the first scheduled lesson, he had broken down parts of one of my daughter’s favorite songs -- a TV theme song -- for her to play and practice on guitar and introduced her to musical notation. My daughter now keeps a notebook to write down songs she wants to talk to Stelios about. From my own conversations with Stelios and from watching him interact with my daughter, I would recommend him to guitar students of any age or ability. Meet him for an introductory lesson. You will be happy you did.

Liv had the most wonderful experience with her first year of learning the ukulele. She loved her instructor and is now playing some great songs. We can't wait to continue and even get into guitar lessons as well!

Connor is a great person to learn from and brings a lot of experience to the table. He adapts depending on your learning style and has several different techniques that help with learning the material. Even better, he makes the lessons fun!

I told Luke that I was a beginner at guitar and wanted a few quick lessons to get me started. He worked with me over video chat and taught me some essentials of getting started. Excellent tutor and great with people at any age!

Chris is hands down the best guitar teacher I have ever had (I have had six guitar teachers since I started playing 30 years ago). He has taken me further in two months than other instructors did in two years. In every lesson, Chris is constantly assessing where I am in my guitar journey, and plotting a course to get me to the next level. He listens to my every questions and gives succinct answers. His lessons leave me feeling inspired to practice and to just enjoy playing again. For anyone stuck in a pentatonic rut, or just needing inspiration, run, don't walk, to get a few lessons with Chris!

Just started and find that Jonathan is very talented and patient. Never felt this comfortable trying to learn guitar from a teacher before. I am an experienced player and can confidently say he can teach blues both pick and finger style as well as jazz and rock. Peace fellow musicians.. Darren.

Joe is the best! He gets right to the point and does not mind spending extra time to help. My husband and I would highly recommend him. He is flexible with his schedule which is a huge plus. As a guitar teach I feel that he is very knowledgeable and clearly has patience with my 8 yrs old. Joe travels to my home and is always on time. If your looking for a great teacher look no more!

I have been taking drum lessons from Alex for about 6 months. Alex was among three instructors to contact me on Thumbtack and I consider myself fortunate to have chosen him as my teacher. I have been playing drums on and off for over 50 years but I am mostly self-taught. I am currently in a classic rock band and Alex is helping me take my playing up to the next level. His musical knowledge is vast and his teaching style is relaxed but competent. I would not hesitate to recommend Alex to anyone regardless of their level of ability.

Anthony is the reason I am finally learning guitar AND ENJOYING its addition of balance and relaxation to my life. I tried for several years with YouTube videos and one other teacher in NY, but the motivation waned. I've been excited to come to weekly lessons for 6 months with Anthony. He has an unusual combination of extreme skill and extreme humility and warmth. My parents are both professional classical musicians so even though I am a beginner in guitar I appreciate his skill. Also, they have commented that I am making great, steady progress and that the accompanying theory I am learning is very sound. Anthony is flexible, allowing me to learn the songs I want to play for my newborn and my husband, and adjusting them for my level, while working theory in between, always making it fun and laid back. I've lived in NYC 11 years and he is one of the nicest people I've ever met. This guitar teacher is a find -- a true diamond in the rough of manhattan!
