Dom is my current teacher, I can only recommend him: beyond his wide knowledge and experience with music, he is a kind, fun, and patient person who makes it all easier for total beginner learning bass guitar like me. No hesitation here, if you are looking for a good teacher on the UWS he certainly is your go-to person.

I've been working with David as a "beginner" bass player for only a few weeks at this point, but I am already seeing really remarkable results, even in such a short time. He is very clear in his explanations, methodical, patient and knowledgeable. My lessons are a good mix of theory and practice (which is in response to my expressed interest in knowing more compositional theory). I feel much more confident about my bass playing, and am able to communicate better with band members. Most importantly, I have confident that with his continued guidance, I will be able to reach a level of competency and creativity. Based on my experience, I recommend him to anyone who want to learn the bass guitar, without any reservations.

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)

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.

Barb's Continuo Home Music Lessons provided home lessons to my son. Not only was the instructor very talented, but they knew exactly how to interact with a young person to keep his interest throughout the lesson and encouraged practicing beyond the lesson. Barb is always prompt and goes out of her way to accomodate scheduling issues.

Mr. Batchelor gave me lessons for the electric bass guitar. His teaching was set to my personal needs as a musician, rather than being forceful. I was able to quickly regain my confidence as a bass player and improved greatly over a short amount of time. The theory that he taught me through the bass helped me get into my college's music conservatory. I now study Music Studio Production at Purchase College. Very good man, teacher and mentor

Lesson scheduling is flexible. Very open to your preference of music to learn. Offers more than learning to play guitar & bass, such as writing and recording music. Good lesson fee rates. A great teacher and musician to learn from.

Erik has been my piano/guitar teacher for about 6 years and the experience has been excellent. His knowledge of instruments and music as well as his ability to teach made learning very simple and entertaining. He's always been patient with my brother and I and every lessons ends with us learning something new about music. I highly recommend him as a teacher.

Today was my first bass lesson with Junichi. After carefully reviewing all my options all I have to say is I'm extremely satisfied. From the moment I arrived he made me feel right at home and started playing a song by Harabe de palo: La Flaca which I've always wanted to learn. I was impressed with Junichi's ability to keep me relaxed throughout the entire lesson. He pointed out several software programs he uses with students to facilitate the learning process and maximized use of time. Can't wait till my next lesson! We need more instructors like Junichi!

Awesome teacher, a lot of guitar teachers dont focus on theory or teaching you how to understand guitar and instead focus on songs and I'm glad to say Kyle isn't one of those teachers

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!
