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.

My 5 year old son was interested in piano lessons and as a parent, it is extremely challenging to find that somewhat perfect instructor that will be patient, loving, gentle and kind. After researching dozens of providers in our area, my husband and I found Ms. Gwen and decided to give her a try. As we all know, 5 year children do not easily warm up to adults; but Ms. Gwen made our son feel really comfortable and he actually "LOVED" his first lesson with her. From that point, we knew we hired the right person to mentor our son. She has a very pleasant personality, is extremely talented and loves her craft! We would highly recommend Ms. Gwen to anyone looking to hire a gifted music teacher and singing coach. Well worth the investment and total peace of mind!

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.

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!)

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!

Brian is a very passionate and methodical instructor. He has an extensive music knowledge as well as years of experience in teaching. He always finds different approach to fix issues in my playing. He has a keen eye and ear to pinpoint technique issues as well as ways to refine the melody and how to approach it to sound the best musically. Within couple of months I improved my technique and playing significantly. As well as I am able to play finger-style couple of nice classical pieces. It has been a lot of fun learning the guitar with Brian. The sessions tend to drift into hours of playing non-stop which is amazing. Brian keeps varying the sessions from technique focused to improvisation, melody adjustments and style with some music theory every now and then; There is always something new to learn and sessions are always engaging and interesting. Thanks Brian:) I would highly recommend Brian for guitar lessons!

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.

I am a busy business owner with limited time to explore my creative side. Knowing this, I wanted to take up acoustic guitar lessons, but needed to connect with someone with the right balance of push and patience. I was fortunate to find Paul. He is very passionate about music, and that comes through in our lessons. I'm learning, having fun, and through Paul have found a new outlet for my creative side. Thank you Paul!

My 12-year old nephew has been taking guitar lessons with John for about three years now and I can't believe how much he has improved! John is patient, kind and inspiring and my nephew is always excited for his next lesson with him. We have had a couple of teachers before John but John is by far the most experienced and motivating. He also has a very structured approach to the lesson and my nephew always walks away with a clear idea of exactly what he needs to practice. I should also mention that my nephew is interested in many different types of music and John is knowledgeable in all fields, and is happy to cater to my nephew's musical tastes while at the same time maintaining an organized teaching regiment. I would recommend John for anyone, he is a great teacher all around!

Chanan was a joy to work with! Knowledgeable and skilled and very creative. He helped produce a record of sacred music for me and also provided back up guitar for my band when needed a few times in Dallas. He is an exceptional engineer and guitar player with a fine ear for detail.

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' !!!

Songwriting with Natalia

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
