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.

Phenomenal musician, great teacher, cool cat - I rate David First INFINITY STARS. I've studied music here and there, but it wasn't until I started taking bass lessons with David a few years ago that it all came together for me. He explains music theory in a way I can understand and translate to actual practice that is not a chore, it is fun and addictive! Besides developing technical skill, Dave also helped me grow as a musician by getting over feeling awkward jamming with other people. I eventually felt comfortable enough to audition for bands and ended up in a fun one, playing out in the city even! David was there for my first gig, too. My husband was so impressed with my progress, he started guitar lessons last year and has come so far, it is amazing. We feel like Grasshoppers to David's Master Po. He is the best, ok I'll stop now, you get it.

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.

I took guitar lessons from Jimi on a fairly constant basis for about 3 years. The best and most unique feature of his teaching style is the balance between the freedom Jimi gives students in what they want to achieve musically, and the structure that he provides students with that will allow them to reach that goal. Personally, I learned advanced rock and jazz guitar techniques and improvisation from Jimi, and I am very happy with my current level of ability. Especially helpful is his extremely coherent way of explaining often over-complicated music theory. Jimi treats his students with an optimistic and respectful attitude, and creates a very welcoming and encouraging environment for the music student.

Josh has been teaching my 8-year-old son guitar lessons for the past several weeks. He has been very patient with my son, who is an absolute beginner, and has also done a great job conveying his enthusiasm for music to him. He is also punctual and has done a great job of keeping us apprised of his availability. We've been very happy working with Josh.

Micheal is teaching my kids to play the guitar. His approach of teaching them by getting down to their level is amazing. My kids love learning from him and look forward to his lessons every week. Hiring him to teach my kids was the best decision I made.

I've taken lessons for several months with Stelios and found him to be an excellent teacher. He has a broad knowledge of guitar music and technique. He's thoughtful, patient and offers helpful tips on technique, style, and how to practice during every lesson. I always come away knowing something more about guitar playing. His lessons have rekindled my passion for the instrument and helped me improve -- not only by learning new classical and blues pieces, but with almost anything I play.

Chris has been teaching my son guitar for many years, and I started taking lessons myself a few years ago. He is patient, clear in his instruction, and always teaching you new things, as well reviewing previous concepts. A great instructor for students of all ages.

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 have always wanted to learn to play the guitar, so I decided to try to give it a go on my own last year. Watching youtube's, buying iphone apps but found myself not really gaining any momentum. My boyfriend bought me lessons for Christmas with Josh and I am so happy he did. Josh is incredibly thorough, insightful and taking classes with him has been a blast. He breaks it down and really helps you understand the fundamentals of playing the guitar. I'm several lessons in and I already feel like I'm miles ahead from when I started. I HIGHLY recommend Josh, he's a wonderful teacher and learning from him has been so seamless! - ALANA

Connor is a great person to learn from and brings a lot of experience to the table. He adapts depending on your learning style and has several different techniques that help with learning the material. Even better, he makes the lessons fun!

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!

Just started and find that Jonathan is very talented and patient. Never felt this comfortable trying to learn guitar from a teacher before. I am an experienced player and can confidently say he can teach blues both pick and finger style as well as jazz and rock. Peace fellow musicians.. Darren.

Joe is the best! He gets right to the point and does not mind spending extra time to help. My husband and I would highly recommend him. He is flexible with his schedule which is a huge plus. As a guitar teach I feel that he is very knowledgeable and clearly has patience with my 8 yrs old. Joe travels to my home and is always on time. If your looking for a great teacher look no more!
