Ryan is an awesome teacher. His talent and love for music really show. I've taken guitar lessons one-on-one with him for almost a year and have also worked with him through the Rock School program. He knows how to challenge his students while keeping things fun and enjoyable.

Joe is an excellent guitar player with a great deal of knowledge to pass along. As an unorthodox student (someone with previous self taught experience who has not played in several years), he has helped me get back to where I once was and start to advance beyond that in just a few lessons. His lessons are also very reasonably priced.

Dennis is wonderful at helping me accomplish the goals I’ve set for myself and I highly recommend him as a music teacher. Although I’m not a guitar student, I’ve had Dennis work with me to help develop my skills with jazz. He makes lessons both interesting and challenging yet never leaves me feeling discouraged or feeling that that something is too difficult. I love that he gives me many strategies for learning new pieces, for developing my ear, and for improving my competence as a jazz musician (rhythmically, technically, harmonically, etc). I especially like that everything we work at gets applied in the context of playing real tunes – nothing is ever given in isolation without going on to the application of the skill during the lesson. I’ve been working with Dennis for 3 years now and continue to look forward to each lesson with him.

I am a beginner beginner piano player who approached the idea of lessons because of my passion for songwriting. Austin's Studio has been wonderful, teaching me chords, scales, and how to understand sounds so I can start messing around and making songs even after the first lesson. I would describe our lessons as "modified jam sessions" where we talk theory and progressions. He also has been sososo kind as to lend me an electric piano while I look for an affordable piano to purchase. I would describe Austin's style of teaching as approachable, knowledgable & adaptable.

    I met with Will yesterday after taking lessons with a lot of guitar teachers over the past few months. Will is an extremely talented teacher, guitar player and musician! The experience with him was so above and beyond what I received from the rest (several of which are on Thumbtack). He makes you very comfortable, explains things so they're very easy to understand. He even included video, so I can watch him play the exercises as many times as I need. Will is worth every penny and I won't be going anywhere else!

    About

    Hello! I'm a local musician from Ithaca, NY, available to teach guitar lessons. I have over 10 years of experience playing guitar in a professional rock band as well as writing songs in different styles such as folk/blues/rock/progressive rock/metal/electronica. In addition to teaching guitar, I am able to instruct students on how to integrate computer programs such as Ableton Live 8 or MainStage 2 into their live setup. These programs allow the modern musician to sculpt and design virtually any soundscape. The main focus is to teach students the basics of guitar technique, rhythm and the use of new technology for composing songs. Songwriting is a great form of self-discovery and therapy. Contact me if you have any questions. I look forward to working you!

    About

    I offer aspiring musicians expert guidance through the often confusing first stages of learning an instrument. I will walk you the process of finger development, and technique (which most teachers neglect). I take pride in getting my students to reach their "a-ha" moments concerning chord, scales, and harmonic theory. Learn how to play your favorite songs, jam tastefully, or even write your own music!

    About

    I am a guitar teacher based out of Syracuse, NY. I have novice knowledge of guitar technique and theory. Whether you're looking to just learn some chords to play on your acoustic guitar around the camp fire, learn how to improvise with your friends in a jam session, learn about guitar theory and technique, or just want to increase your overall ability to learn and play music, I'm here to teach you. I've wanted to start teaching guitar to people a while ago, but could never really find a place to get started. I’m motivated and very interested in teaching what I think is an amazing art to anyone and everyone who wants to learn. Starting from the time I’ve written this, I’ve played guitar coming on 6 years now. I'm very dedicated to my art, and I love the feeling of showing other people that they can harness the power of music in their hands. It's a very good feeling to express yourself this way, plus it makes you look kind of cool.
