Jeffery A.

Verified review

I have been taking guitar lessons with Edward for over six months now. i have been amazed at how much I have learned (especially since I don't have time to practice as much as I would like). The best part is that lessons with Edward are not only about the physical act of playing, but also cover Music theory and "philosophy of music." Also, his studio is comfortable and mellow and really helps me get into another zone from the rest of my busy life. It all comes together to be a wonderful and rewarding experience!

About

Met with Jeff for my first session yesterday. I have attempted to learn guitar many times and always quit because I would become frustrated. Jeff prepared songs that I like and a cd to listen to prior to our session in order to help me learn along. He was very prepared and helpful. I left feeling confident that I can continue to learn. I look forward to next weeks lesson! Great instructor with years of knowledge.

I have learned more in my 5 short months of lessons with Patrick than I did with 2 years of guitar in school. Patrick is very patient, and extremely knowledgeable and he doesn't hesitate to share that knowledge, He is well versed in all types of music and playing styles. I would recommend Patrick to any one who wants to learn guitar and who already knows guitar.

My experience with Kristie is from taking private guitar lessons with Tommy Regits and Over the Mountain Music Studio. In the beginning, years ago, Krisite was the friendly face behind the scenes, always there with a welcoming smile and a keen attention to detail. Krisite was very efficient in scheduling and adjusting schedules to meet my changing needs. Back then Kristie was developing her studio, and learning to use all of the latest technology to enhance anyone's musical experience. As for Tommy Regits, and Over the Mountain Music Studio, well the experience will ROCK you and change the way you interact with music. Whether a complete beginner, young or old, or an accomplished musician, Tommy adjusts his style to meet the needs of his students. My son is an accomplished musician and also spent some time with Tommy, developing a deeper understanding of how music structure works at a level beyond music theory. Tommy and Kristie really care about their students, and help each one get the most out of their time together. They take the time to prepare for each lesson and are fully engaged without distraction for the entire lesson. Always a cheerful attitude. Kristie and Tommy can do everything to help you get to the level of performance you desire...well except for doing your practice...Ha! Anyway, young or old, beginner or professional, they can help you go above and beyond your own expectations. And check around, they are the best deal in town. My money is valuable to me and I spend it wisely, so here's some wisdom, give the Desert Dawn Studio and Kristie, or Over the Mountain Music Studio and Tommy an opportunity to enhance your experience, and write your own review! And tell your friends (but only after you get the good time slot...)! Music is a wonderful gift and all it takes is some practice, and with the proper instruction your time will be well spent. Lastly there is a lot of stuff on the internet but none of that even remotely compares to having someone understand and care about you creating your own reality with music. Once you have the music no one can ever take it away from you. If you are choosing to invest in yourself, make a small deposit with them, your investment will grow fast.

About

I offer guitar lessons for beginners and advanced students. My lessons include basic notes and chords all the way through music theory and reading music. I teach blues, rock, and jazz. I currently play in a hard rock alternative band. The videos you see in my media are songs that I wrote and produced with Derek Sherinian (Dream Theater, Billy Idol, and Joe Bonamassa). We recorded them at Steakhouse Studio in Hollywood, and the songs include bass player Tony Franklin and Brian Tichy. I lived with Derek Sherinian in Burbank while studying guitar theory and was fortunate to learn and work with him and other artists.

Travis is a wonderful teacher to my two kids, ages 8 and 5. My kids enjoyed him as he made his lessons enjoyable and he taught piano in a way an 8 year old and 5 year old can understand. He is also very thorough and knowledgable. It makes learning piano fun and easy! Thank you Travis!

About

I had been playing guitar for 10 years, and had taken, and failed at lessons before. I finally decided to go to Robert on the advice of a friend, and within 2 lessons, my guitar playing was already significantly better! A year later, I was doing things on a guitar that I figured I would never understand! Robert is a phenomenal teacher who I would recommend to anyone looking to pick up an instrument, or to hone their craft!

About

My 15 year old son began playing the violin a little over a year ago. He has been taking violin lessons at Nevada Music Academy for the past 6 months. He has improved tremendously under the instruction of Dr. Julie Jack. She is a very accomplished and talented violinist and teacher. Dr. Jack is a patient, knowledgeable, and passionate instructor. She has instilled that passion into my son. During the weekly lessons Dr. Jack models how it should sound, plays along with him, as well as gives him constructive feedback on how to improve his technique. He looks forward to his lessons every week. We feel very fortunate to have Dr. Jack as my son's violin instructor.

Do you have a dream of performing in front of millions or just a few for a career or just for fun? As a vocal/ theatrical instructor, I have spent the past 9 years in Music City USA, helping people live their dreams of being in the spotlight. Whether you'd like to sound better in church, be on a local television show or sing in front of the entire nation, I can help! I am also a certified life coach. I have found that mixing these techniques with innovative training has given my students/clients and edge in all of their endeavors. Many have made it on to The Voice, Idol, America's Got Talent, Ellen and Maury's most talented kids. Mostly, their new-found confidence carries over into all other aspects of their lives. I am brand new to the Eastern Shore of Maryland and am looking forward to working with all types of of people from the area!!!

Bob Driscoll has been teaching guitar to my son weekly for about 5 years. He is a wonderful instructor because he has passion for what he does and loves teaching. He teaches adults as well, but he is very good with children. He just connects with people of all ages. He cares about his students; in fact, he feels like a member of the family. In all the time that my son has been taking lessons, he hasn't complained about having to have a lesson. He enjoys Bob's method of instructor because Bob tailors his teaching to his students' abilities and needs. They have fun while learning, which means my son is still studying guitar at age 17 and enjoying it (having quit other extra-curricular activities after a year or so). My son is actually very good and played at his cousin's wedding. Bob is responsible, punctual and always helpful and enthusiastic. I couldn't be happier with his service over the years.

About

For beginners, intermediate and advanced for ages 8 and up! * Learn how and why your favorite songs work * Learn to play your favorite songs * Learn to create your own songs * Learn these style: rock, pop, metal, classic rock, blues and jazz * Learn to read and write your own music * Learn from an instructor who adapts to your learning style * Learn these instruments: guitar, bass, piano, banjo, mandolin Learn from a professional musician and award-winning composer in the music industry for over 20 years. Haven't you grown tired of faking it? It's time to truly learn and be able to apply music theory. If you are not correctly instructed in the first two years, bad habits that last a lifetime will be developed. It is better to study correctly in the beginning than to waste years trying to correct bad practice habits later on. I have taught many students of all ages, and a lot of them who had lessons somewhere else say, "I haven't improved past a certain point. I cannot seem to play the way I want to!" You can read my students' testimonials on my website. I am an award-winning composer and a professional musician. I am a former instructor and not just a graduate from one of Los Angeles, California's top music trade schools. My guitar instruction book has been utilized at Boston's Berklee College of Music, the top music school in the world. My other books can be found at Amazon, Barnes & Noble and Borders. I am an award-winning musician who has collaborated with Hall of Fame recording artist Dave Marks (The Beach Boys), Denny Laine of The Moody Blues and Wings (the band of Paul McCartney after The Beatles), Duncan Faure (Rabbitt, Trevor Rabin, Madonna), award-winning film composer Jeffrey Gold (Abby Singer, Pigweed Philosopher, Nowhere Fast), John Debney who is an Academy Award nominee and film composer (The Passion of the Christ, Sin City), TV/film composer Dan Ferguson (Toto, Steely Dan, Cher), actor Mark McClure (Apollo 13, Superman, Back to the Future), Emmy award winner Jimmy Danelli (Winnie the Pooh, Disney), Academy Award winner Timothy Hutton (The Falcon and The Snowman, Ordinary People), Platinum artist Donnie Vie (Enuff Z'nuff), Jazz great Richie Cole, Jake E. Lee (Badlands, Ozzy Osbourne, Sarah Thiele), Mike Bordeman (drummer for Spencer Davis) and Vinnie Castaldo (Phil Collins, Aynsley Dunbar). I am a music theory and guitar instructor for members of the R and R Top 40 (No. 27) charting pop-rock band Kropp Circle and was an instructor to guitarist Chris Iorio of the Billboard (No. 4) charting band (EMI/Virgin Records), Adelitas Way ("Invincible"). My music is available on Amazon and iTunes, and my filmography is available on IMDb. Take the time to really understand and learn chords, scales and song construction. Please spare time to study with a person who can really help you improve your skills. Stop wasting your money and time on worthless lessons with little to no improvement. Work with a professional instructor who has established a full music education system, not just anyone who can teach you Stairway to Heaven or some blues riffs. I teach using a very easy guitar neck diagram system (for more details, click on the diagram), as well as traditional music staff reading. I use my own easy piano tablature system and teach traditional music reading in piano lessons. I guarantee that compared to any other teacher, you will learn more from, or I will give you your money back! Remember, not all good players can teach well. Many of them are sincere, but lack the proper teaching skills. Professional guitar and bass, and music instruction is absolutely essential. I charge $85.00 an hour $50.00 for half an hour. All instructional materials are included! Please email me, or call me, should you have queries.
