My son really wanted to play guitar and Mark took him at a young age. Since my child has been playing he's grown into himself and even auditioned and got into a performance art school. Mark encourages my child and is an AWESOME instructor! If you need guitar or mandolin lessons you should really try lessons with Mark.

Ive been taking guitar lessons with Kyle now for about 8-9 months and its been great. Highly recommend doing it if your on the fence. I started learning guitar on nothing more than a whim and now I've progressed beyond what i though i would be at this point. Kyle is flexible at catering to what ever music style you are familiar with or like it just so happens we have similar taste so that was an added bonus.

My 12 year old son David has been taking weekly guitar lessons with Tom for the past 15 months. During this time I've seen David grow by leaps-and-bounds both as an individual and as a guitar player. Tom's teaching style is very motivating. He is both gentle and firm, very encouraging, highly skilled, and extremely passionate about music. His love of music is contagious, and he is very driven to provide my son with a rewarding/fulfilling experience. I've enjoyed watching my son's confidence grow with his playing abilities, as he's risen to meet Tom's well chosen challenges. I would highly recommend lessons with Tom to anyone wishing to grow as a musician.

Diana is one of the most prolific guitar players in her style I've ever had the pleasure to meet and work with. Her approach to play is unique and captivating, and if I lived in her area I'd be the first in line to get some tips and guidance from her. Her energy and positive attitude is infectious and guitar lessons from her would surely be a rewarding experience. I highly recommend her and, as a fellow instructor, she has my greatest respect and admiration.

I have been playing guitar for 8 years, teaching for 2. I love to teach and perform. I have always been a better songwriter than a guitarist, so if thats what my student is inspiring to do I can offer advice from a position of understanding.

I am a guitarist since the age of nine. I studied classical guitar at Kent State University. I can play and teach many styles of music. I also play mandolin, piano and bass.

About

Having taught myself guitar and basic music theory, I know how to begin the journey to learning music in simple ways. My basic and patient approach makes my service great for children and beginners. My love for music and teaching have led me to lead a band for a local ministry for the last two years and teach guitar, base guitar, and the basics in music. I am a capable teacher of children as I have worked with children for the last five years. I am also capable in teaching songwriting and work with basic jazz, rock, and hip-hop themes.

I specialize in teaching beginner to intermediate guitar for all ages. From finger strengthening exercises to ear training, my method can shape the beginner/intermediate player into a chord and melody identifier, and musical improviser. Basic music theory and covering musical stylings of interest are recommended as a part of my program which we will do together.

I'm very patient and am good with kids.

About

I offer guitar lessons to kids who are either just picking up a guitar, or who have been playing for a little while, but need direction in order to advance. I love working with kids of any age and showing them how rewarding this instrument can be! As I have matured as a musician, I have learned that there are three areas one must master as a guitarist. 1) Technique- HOW to play mechanically 2) Theory- WHAT to play. The science of music. 3) Composition- YOUR music. What makes your playing different from everyone else? It is my goal to show kids how to progress in each of these three areas.
