I've been working with David as a "beginner" bass player for only a few weeks at this point, but I am already seeing really remarkable results, even in such a short time. He is very clear in his explanations, methodical, patient and knowledgeable. My lessons are a good mix of theory and practice (which is in response to my expressed interest in knowing more compositional theory). I feel much more confident about my bass playing, and am able to communicate better with band members. Most importantly, I have confident that with his continued guidance, I will be able to reach a level of competency and creativity. Based on my experience, I recommend him to anyone who want to learn the bass guitar, without any reservations.

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.

Verified review

I have had the honor of taking guitar lessons with Larry Meyer for about 3 years. Larry introduced me to the world of JAZZ and the concept of musical freedom through improvisation. Larry has truly inspired me to be a musician, and to think beyond my original guitar mind set. If you ask him a question, you will get an answer backed by a lifetime of musical exploration and experience, not to mention the serious undeniable pure talent. It is impossible to get a lesson from Larry and not be infected by his excitement of the music and the joy of revealing that infinite world to an aspiring player. I thank you Larry for your friendship and patience as you helped direct me through each musical stepping stone.

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

Marc has been teaching my daughters piano and guitar for 15 years. During that time he not only taught them how to play instruments, but also inspired their love of music. They talk about favorite artists and share playlists. My older daughter is now in college and looks forward to continuing her lessons with Marc when she's home for vacations. Marc is a great teacher for kids (and adults) of all ages.

Erik has been my piano/guitar teacher for about 6 years and the experience has been excellent. His knowledge of instruments and music as well as his ability to teach made learning very simple and entertaining. He's always been patient with my brother and I and every lessons ends with us learning something new about music. I highly recommend him as a teacher.

Today was my first bass lesson with Junichi. After carefully reviewing all my options all I have to say is I'm extremely satisfied. From the moment I arrived he made me feel right at home and started playing a song by Harabe de palo: La Flaca which I've always wanted to learn. I was impressed with Junichi's ability to keep me relaxed throughout the entire lesson. He pointed out several software programs he uses with students to facilitate the learning process and maximized use of time. Can't wait till my next lesson! We need more instructors like Junichi!

This is definitely the place to come for top music instruction. As a drummer, Joe has taught me so much and is continuing to teach me more and more during each lesson. In Joe's studio; he's got sound activated lights, smoke and bubble machines, you can play along to RockBand (which is my favorite). For Joe, the sky is the limit. Always thinking of ways for his students to exceed their expectations of music instruction. I've been a student of Joe's for 10 years and he's always having new ideas to make his lesson more enjoyable. Joe's staff is always full of energy! His staff are dedicated to their students and is a lot of fun to jam out with them. The receptionist is great to get along with always helping the students rearrange their lesson to what better suits the student. Joe's one of a kind showcase is always put together with flawless detail! Reasonable rates. But, this is definitely the place to come to for top music instruction; for all ages!! Keep on Jammin' !!!

My son (5) and I (48) have been taking weekly, separate lessons with Dave for over 3 years. We love having Dave as an instructor! We both started not knowing anything about guitar. He started us with the very basics and we are very happy with our progress. Dave adapts to his students...from teaching my son (incorporating car games and soccer games into rewards for well done guitar exercises) and then he's able to transition to teaching me more detailed exercises. My son is playing basic chords and kids songs while I have progressed to a full library of songs. For my son, I wanted him to start to enjoy and learn music. For me I wanted to be able to play my guitar on the beach or at a party. In both cases, Dave has been dedicated to our goals and continues to push us (nicely) to improve to the next level. Lastly, Dave is always on time and has a plan of action for each lesson. We highly recommend Dave whether you are a beginner or highly skilled player.

It doesn't get any better than Matt Robinson. He is extremely patient and encouraging. He knows just how far to push to keep you excited about playing. His knowledge of the guitar and music is inspiring. If you've ever toyed with the idea of learning to play the guitar, do it. Call Matt and you'll be glad you did. You will be playing your favorite songs in no time at all. Nice guy.
