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.

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.

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)

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.

He gave me a lot of great things to work on for being such a beginner at piano. I feel like I learned a lot in just one session so far.

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!

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!

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.

So far Bob is a great teacher. He was easy to talk to and enhanced my enthusiasm to play guitar. I've only had one lesson so it's a bit too early to tell, but the whole process from start to finish and the friendliness of the staff is superb.

    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!

    We are VERY happy with Mark Fabian. He has been tutoring my 13yr old son for the past month and we find him to be patient, very knowledgeable about guitars and personable. Recently Mark had to reschedule a lesson and he did not have my phone number handy so he physically drove to my home and taped a message on the door hours prior to the lesson. My son is learning how to play the guitar and he looks forward to lessons with Mr. Fabian. We highly recommend him!!!

    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.

    Richard (Ian) Farrington is an absolutely amazing guitar teacher. To start, Ian is a fantastic & knowledgeable musician and guitarist. He is very good at communicating his lessons and teaching. He really knows how to simplify a concept or technique and then build from there into more complex techniques and faster playing. Saying that, in the few months Ian and I have worked together, my guitar skills have drastically improved. Next is Ian's Professionalism, which in my opinion is unmatched in the industry. He is on time, extremely well prepared, kind and understanding. He emails me a lesson plan the night before so I can properly prepare for our sessions and really make the most of our time together. He also assisted in creating a binder in order to organize my music and techniques. Overall Ian's Professionalism and organization really allows me to get the most value from our lesson time as well as my individual practice time. Ian has been an absolute pleasure all around in terms of his attitude, knowledge/teaching skills, organization, commitment and overall professionalism. I can't say enough about him. 10 out of 10!
