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 would highly recommend Dave Robles for guitar lessons. He taught two of my daughters, from age 6 to age 12. He is both a professional educator and musician. He builds a rapport with the kids, and keeps them interested by letting them have input into the kind of music they're learning. He is reliable and organized, and provided a tabbed binder with sections for notes, theory and music. I recommended Dave to the after school enrichment program at our elementary school because he did such a good job teaching my girls, and I would highly recommend him for all ages.

I'm an experienced guitar player in the blues and rock vein, and wanted to stretch my ears and abilities into jazz. Josh is the perfect teacher for this, because he plays all those genres, and knows how to blend them. He's patient, and tailors the lessons to the individual. Whether you are an experienced guitar player or beginner, Josh will help you play better, and make it fun.

I'm a 29 year old male with 15 years of experience on bass guitar and was looking to enhance my singing chops. I took lessons under Gwin for several months and she definitely helped me improve my ability to sing! She noticed my strengths and weaknesses and brought it to my attention that I had a singing register that was more than I had initially expected. She also showed me how to use diaphragmatic breathing to sing the right way. I'd recommend Gwin to anyone from beginner to advanced to improve your ability to sing.

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've been taking lessons from Assaf for almost a year now, and my guitar playing and knowledge of music theory have both developed much faster than I had envisioned they would. Assaf brings much more to the table than just being a well-knowledged jazz guitar virtuoso, in that he is very patient, is able to explain complex ideas well, and, most importantly, is able to make lessons and practice both highly productive and enjoyable. Highly recommended.

Kevin is a great guitar teacher! He's a very experienced musician and it's fun listening to him talk about music. His enthusiasm and passion are evident. He's quite academic about his teaching and focuses on teaching the basics, integrating theory and technique. I am a beginner guitar player and Kevin has been methodically teaching me the basics rather than jumping into playing songs right away. He's laying a solid foundation which is very important if one is interested in learning to play properly. He is very patient and overall it has been a pleasure learning guitar from him.

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.

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.

I've been working on improving and refreshing my guitar skills with Brian a little over six months now. At first, I didn't really know what to expect since I haven't picked up music in over 15 years. What I liked about Brian is that he was able to customize my lessons to my level. I wasn't a true beginner, but I also wasn't advanced in guitar. He was able to test and adjust his lessons to match my skill level . So far, he has helped me improve in sight reading, finger style techniques, and develop a repertoire of several classical songs. In addition, we've explored Blues and Jazz and scales /accompaniment chords to i for solo guitar improvisations. I love working with Brian and tapping into his vast knowledge of musical styles and techniques. He is flexible and can change the course of a lesson on a dime. Some weeks we strictly work on technique, which is important. He's also a stickler for correct technique and will point out error in form if necessary. My favorite thing about working with Brian is that he is the first instructor (and I've had many) that focuses on developing style and musicality. Many instructors will move a student along when they learn how to play a song..but completely dismiss the importance of performing a piece with musicality in mind. I whole heartedly endorse and recommend Brian as a music / guitar instructor. Don't look further!

My daughter has been taking guitar lessons with Mike for the past eight years. The valuable lessons she has learned from Mike while learning to play guitar were applicable to playing violin for her school. Learning how to practice, reading and writing music, playing a song by ear, understanding difficult rhythms, and being exposed to a variety of genres are just a few examples of the valuable lessons she learned over the years. Mike also recorded her playing her grandfather's favorite song so she could give it to him as a gift. My daughter has learned to love music and we have Mike to thank for that. I have also had the pleasure of learning how to play guitar through Mike. We both feel our time with Mike is always well spent.

I decided to resume learning to play the acoustic guitar, an endeavor I began as a teenager. My daughters bought me a lesson from Howie as a Mother's Day gift. It was such a wonderful experience that I have continued to take lessons from him for several years now! He is patient, talented and skilled and has an excellent technique for imparting these abilities to his students. Howie is a great teacher and I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone of any age. You will not be disappointed!

Jackie has been of great help. She comes over to teach me how to play an acoustic guitar whenever I have the time. She started with teaching how to play a couple of songs on the guitar. That got me interested in learning more. Now she has been teaching me music theory with the guitar - helping me to improvise! I see that she loves teaching music and sometimes we just lose the track of time!

Dennis is extremely helpful in teaching to the student's needs. Whatever you are interested in learning he is able to give great insight, as he has a wide knowledge of music and guitar. He is also very friendly, and will take time to make sure you are able to understand what he teaches.

Jim’s lessons strike a perfect balance between practical, real-world skills and theoretical knowledge. What started for me as “I'll take a few lessons to get some basic skills on guitar as a second instrument” turned into four years of serious study covering many, many concepts, styles and techniques. His ability to accurately read a students skill level and the direction of their interests (as well as his sense of humor) enables him to build a curriculum that stays interesting, challenging and fun. Thanks to Jim, I have a much more complete understanding of the guitar, and of music in general. Ethan Brooklyn, NY

My daughter has been taking violin lessons with David since she was 9 years old; and more recently, she has started classical, acoustic guitar lessons the summer before entering college. He is a dedicated professional and diligent in making sure his students learn correct technique and become more musical in their own personal way. More importantly, David has the ability to keep his lessons fun and varied! Her lessons have always been highlights of my daughter's week! I recommend David without hesitation.

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.
