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 found the search for classical guitar instruction rather daunting until I discovered the website of James Lorusso (jameslorusso.com). My initial contact from several other entities and individuals proved far too commercially driven for my taste. I was interested in taking formal lessons and learning how to read music not just learning from tablature or playing by ear which I had done for over fifty years. A few hours following my e-mail inquiry I was surprised and gratified to receive a personal call from Mr. Lorusso and was in his studio the very next day. I was immediately impressed with this gentleman. His warmth and finely honed pedagogic approach were so apparent it was only a matter of minutes into that introductory lesson I became convinced I had found the quintessential teacher a true pedagogue and a man of such talent and encyclopedic musical knowledge I was drawn to him like a magnet. Seldom in life does one come across a resource as substantial and charismatic as this gentleman look no further, you have just found a genius who's also as warm as the day is long! My name is Tom I'm 67 years of age and feel like a kid when I'm in Jims studio. In three months he has given me gifts of learning and brought me to places I thought were unachievable. He will do the same for you!

I took guitar lessons for three years with Lou at U Music and the quality of instruction was incredible. Lou clearly knows what he's talking about when it comes to understanding the guitar. He provides a holistic and fun approach to learning the instrument, backed up by many years of experience as a musician and teacher. I would recommend him as a teacher to anyone from the earliest beginners to the most veteran guitar players. I'm also pleased to say that every one of the instructors at U Music is friendly and easy to talk to. I took voice lessons with Ann (which were also fun and helpful), and I've had numerous chats about music and other things with both Greg the bass teacher and Nick the drum instructor. Great people, great instruction in my experience, and altogether a great place to learn about the wonderful world of music.

I've had the pleasure of working with Kyle for a few years and can say he is an extremely talented guitar player and awesome teacher. He breaks complex concepts down in a compassionate way for beginners and can even challenge seasoned guitar players. He's great with players of all levels from beginner to advanced. His lessons are fun and engaging, and you can tell he's passionate about music and seeing his students thrive. Highly recommended!

Verified review

I first met John when my son started taking guitar lessons with him. Sitting in on my son’s lessons I was incredibly impressed with not just John’s knowledge of music and theory but his gift of teaching. I, myself, was a self-taught guitarist whose knowledge of chords, theory and technique was severely limited. I had taken lessons with a few instructors in the past to try and gain a better understanding and become a more confident and competent player but could never quite connect. In the short time I have been taking lessons with John I have made great improvements. His ability to clearly explain and make sense of each lesson has allowed me to make the necessary connections, filling in my gaps of knowledge, and allowing me to make great progress in every facet of the guitar from chords and theory to picking and strumming techniques. John is incredibly talented as both a musician and a teacher. I would recommend him to anyone looking to bring their playing to a higher level.

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.

Tom's extensive knowledge of music and proficiency on multiple instruments and voice makes him the perfect teacher for all types of music students. His profound understanding of music theory, musical technique, and recording and production allow him to teach beginner and advanced students alike. His love and passion for music is evident in his dedication to teaching and he is easily able to tailor his instruction based on students' strengths and weaknesses.

We hired James to play instrumental guitar for our mom’s 100th birthday party. Frankly… he was great! On the day of the event he arrived on time, set up quickly, and got right to work. He played a wide variety of music throughout the afternoon including music from the 1940’s, exactly as we had requested. In addition to being a gifted musician, James was professional, competent and gracious to all of our guests. He was a pleasure to work with. James, thanks so much for a job well done!

I started taking guitar lessons as a beginner a few months ago and am totally happy. Billy has given me a combination of the basics and is also gearing me towards what I want to learn, rock and metal. His explanations are clear and I come away with great notes to help me practice. I really feel like I'm coming along and that makes me excited to keep at it. Most of all, he makes learning guitar fun! Highly recommend!

Rob is an excellent instructor and takes a personal interest in honing both your technical skills and your understanding and appreciation of what transforms a sequence of notes and chords into music. In addition to lessons, Rob is extremely generous with his time and goes out of his way to organize jams that allow students to learn to play in a band setting.

I have been taking guitar lessons with Frank for the past six months and could not be happier with Frank as my teacher. Our lessons are intense because Frank pushes me even when I want to give up on myself. He has helped me not only to improve my technical guitar skills but has taught me how to own the guitar and express myself with it. I highly recommend him!

John is a talented musician and amazing person. My 14 year old daughter and I have taken almost 10 lessons together. John is very patient and makes every lesson fun. We are very lucky to have found him. He is definitely the best choice in guitar teachers.(Tom Callari). John is very easy going and very accommodating to our hectic schedule. He always finds a way to make time for us. I have fun at every lesson. (Sophia Callari)

My 13 year old daughter, Alessandra, has been taking guitar lessons with Larry Del Casale since Summer 2012, so a little more than 4 years. He integrates theory, technique, and passion together in a way that made her progress at an amazing rate. I think Larry is one of the reasons why my daughter loves and enjoys playing the guitar so much.

Arthur is an excellent, very well-rounded, guitar instructor. He is very knowledgeable in quite a few aspects of guitar playing - from music theory, playing different styles, transcribing, to all the guitar gear and technology stuff. He has a nice studio, and is also very accuracy oriented, which I really like. I'm into learning to play the blues, rock and metal, and Arthur has been really helpful with that. Highly recommended!
