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.

Christopher was awesome! I did weekly private guitar lessons with him over Google Hangouts, and felt like I really learned a lot. You can tell he really cares about his students and puts a lot of extra effort into making sure you're getting the most out of your lessons.

David has been great to work with. I came across him and a few other teachers on the internet and after meetings a few, I decided to hire him for my seven year old son who has been taking piano lessons for two years and still does parallel to guitar. In fact, I was so impressed by David that I decided to take guitar lessons myself. I had not taken any music classes at all in the past, but thanks to David's teaching abilities, professionalism and patience, I have made nice progress and am enjoying learning how to play the guitar. My son is also enjoying the lessons. I work in a demanding, fast-paced environment and do not have much time to practice as much as I should, but David is making the learning a real pleasure and I plan on taking lessons for years to come. David is an excellent teacher with a tremendous knowledge of music and very capable of customizing his approach based on the student's skill level. I highly recommend him.

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.

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 take piano lessons from Michael. He is a great teacher, particularly because he customizes his lessons to suit the students' skill levels and musical goals. He prepares material ahead of class and has a nice structured approach that I find helpful in developing a good feel for the piano. It's great that he focuses on important technicals like tempo, playing technique and theory, and his lessons are well-rounded, with just the right amount of time spent on each aspect. I like that he is flexible with both scheduling and the curriculum, and willing to tailor material to what I am interested in. He also helped me pick out an excellent piano within my budget, which was very helpful. Overall, a great experience, and definitely recommended!

I’d never even picked up an instrument before and Steve taught me guitar! He’s patient and reliable, and music is his passion so he is very easy to talk to and learn from. Great guy and now a great friend as well! 🎰 Thanks again for everything! -JT πŸŽΈπŸ’ŽπŸ’ŽπŸ’ŽπŸ’ŽπŸ’ŽπŸŽΈ

I had attempted to learn the guitar via YouTube for about 6 months and continued to struggle. Decided to give Josh a shot and have been thoroughly impressed. He is a young, down-to-earth normal guy with tons knowledge and enthusiasm. He actually listens to what I want to learn and structures his lessons and materials around this. He always comes well prepared and teaching comes natural to him. Overall extremely happy with Josh as a guitar coach (contrary to all the others I've tried!)

Over the coarse of 6 or so years Chris Schreiner has given me countless one on one bass lessons. Not only is he a personable guy, he always finds inventive ways to help a student succeed; Professionalism (on time, proper equipment, and real life experience), clear articulation (Terminology and Explanations), and positive attitude will not only encourage you but motivate you to do well. His versatility is also a plus. He has no problem catering to peoples musical needs no matter how far out it may be. All in all, great guy, great teacher!

Chanan was a joy to work with! Knowledgeable and skilled and very creative. He helped produce a record of sacred music for me and also provided back up guitar for my band when needed a few times in Dallas. He is an exceptional engineer and guitar player with a fine ear for detail.

Very cool and fun teacher. He not only plays nice guitar but also makes me enjoy playing along. He also has a deep understanding in music theory which makes me understand a lot of the in and outs of a piece and create my own style.

I have been taking drum lessons from Alex for about 6 months. Alex was among three instructors to contact me on Thumbtack and I consider myself fortunate to have chosen him as my teacher. I have been playing drums on and off for over 50 years but I am mostly self-taught. I am currently in a classic rock band and Alex is helping me take my playing up to the next level. His musical knowledge is vast and his teaching style is relaxed but competent. I would not hesitate to recommend Alex to anyone regardless of their level of ability.

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.
