Sam went above and beyond helping me so that I could obtain the wonderful gift of music lessons for my husband as a xmas gift. He was so accommodating and I would recommend this company to anyone.
I'm a former music major and I have performed with several bands throughout my life on guitar, harmonica, and vocals. I recently decided to take up an instrument that I studied for a very short time as a child - violin. I've had lessons for about six months now with Arielle, and will continue to study with her for some time. She is an excellent teacher, and at a very reasonable cost, especially compared to others. She teaches every single detail of what I should know about playing violin, supplied a really helpful textbook to me, and each lesson is great fun, not dull work for a beginner. I really appreciate that. If someone is expecting to have an effective and pleasing learning experience, just go ahead and work with Arielle. It is absolutely worth the time and effort.
Very good teacher, takes a personnel approach. Very patient being that I'm a beginner. Only took two lessons so far but I have learned more in this short time than the 6 previous lessons I took at a music store. Can't wait to learn more!
My son has been taking guitar lessons with Mir Ali for 5 years. He started when he was 4 years old. He learned not only to play the guitar, but how to use dynamics to bring each piece to life. Mir pushes his students to achieve their full potential. We are very impressed with what he has learned from Mir!
Joe knows his stuff. Very easy going. At sometimes you will think where are these lessons going. Then it clicks and it all makes sense. Understands that adults have a life and doesn't make you run laps around the parking lot if you didn't practice enough..
Dakota has taken lessons with Amanda for a little over a year. Dakota is reading music and can sight read new music. Dakota played bass in a band at summer camp and felt comfortable playing on stage in front of a large audience. Dakota has made a lot of progress with Amanda. We love Amanda!
We offer personalized, involved and fun lessons built around beginner and intermediate players' needs. We make a simple-to-understand system that will have a beginner playing songs right away. If learning cool riffs and solo styles is what you're looking for, we can get you where you want to be in a short time.
I am laid back and patient. Lets cut to the chase and learn how to shred.
I'll work with beginners on developing guitar rudimentary to intermediate guitar skills such as chord shapes, blues scales, and major scales up and down the neck using songs that they would like to learn.
They charge an out rageuse amount of money well I will do it because I enjoy it
Very patient. I have a true love of music and of the guitar and know it takes time to learn.

Fewer students make the lessons more personal and results are instant. Experience with beginner, and advanced guitarists allows me to teach an individual in a way they can understand thoroughly. My lessons and teaching strategies tend to spark excitement and a sense of accomplishment that lasts a lifetime.
Most of the students I work with are successful. All it takes is a little personal attention to find where a student struggles and a way to help them succeed. Because piano or guitar lessons are one on one the instruction can be tailored directly to the needs and interests of the student. It's so great to see someone who hasn't been successful before or who has struggled with a subject pass an exam or a course.
I've been experienced in playing many different styles of music from jazz to classical. Plus I feel that making learning how to play fun and it helps to motivate clients to keep learning on how to play
Learn to play in the style of Steve Vai, Yngwie Malmsteen, and other great neo-classical and metal artists. Jim Jagow, a master shredder, will teach you how to shred using major and minor scales and sweep-picking arpeggios and will offer finger exercises to build speed. In this 6-week session, you will also earn to play harmonic minor scales in the style of Malmsteen. Instruction is designed to focus your practice towards realistic goals achievable within six to eight lessons. Each lesson provides you with techniques, concepts, and licks to help you play and understand metal soloing at a manageable pace. New licks will be introduced each week to help you towards playing in real musical situations and develop an ear for the differences between players. Instruction will not focus on note reading, but it will offer practical skills which can be applied.
