I was seeking guitar lessons to improve my entry-level skills and to be able to write some songs. Just under a year later, I understand various different scales (major, minor, and some modes) and when to use them. I also have a comfortable grasp of the different chords and chord shapes. I was planning to focus on just rock n roll but I've been introduced to a much broader array of music including funk, blues, jazz, reggae, and metal as well as different techniques used within each genre. Lessons have been great and have helped me learn not only what to play, but why I'm playing it too. I cannot say enough good things about Justin who has an answer to any question and an accessible teaching style (which is saying a lot when referring to guitar). Every time I leave my lesson I feel that I've improved and I have the support to inspire me to keep improving.

Jeremy is an outstanding instructor. I had no experience with musical instruments whatsoever, and I have made great strides within a month of learning from Jeremy. He is very flexible with scheduling and teaching, is very friendly, and is an expert in his craft. I would recommend Jeremy to anyone who is considering learning the guitar.

I took weekly guitar lessons from Johnny A about 10 years ago when I was 12-13. I had to stop when high school started to accommodate a football/basketball practice schedule, but continued to schedule 1-time lessons to learn specific skills (like slide playing, etc.) He helped mix the lessons into a combination of what I "wanted" to learn (to keep me interested) and what I needed to learn (to progress as a guitar player). 10 years later, I'm hopelessly addicted to the guitar. I have a number of friends who started lessons (with different teachers) and gave up on it early because it wasn't fun. Well, Johnny A helped hook me early, helped me get through the frustrating first weeks, and helped turn me into an guitar player who has actually been paid to play. I'd recommend John to anyone looking for a new addiction.

After trying to learn guitar casually on my own for a few years, I decided to seek out lessons. When I compared a few places I felt like Brian Armor would be a good teacher. I started taking weekly lessons a few months ago and chose a favorite rock song to learn. Since then I've added several songs and feel great about my progress. Brian is good at teaching things quickly. He knows how to adapt to my pace and scale it down. He gives me a good sense of where I'm at and what to work on, including reminders to avoid my bad habits. I'm impressed that Brian can listen to a song and is able to play it by ear, with the right tuning, key, and rhythm. Overall I'm having fun, playing songs I like (not just scales and chord progressions), and looking forward to getting better. Guitar lessons are my favorite part about Mondays! I highly recommend guitar lessons with Brian.

    John has been my guitar teacher for several years and he has been a wonderful mentor. He is very skilled and does an extremely good job at explaining his musical knowledge. Whether it comes to jazz, classical rock, blues, alternative, or really any genre of music, John is an expert. He teaches lessons and plays at various venues with his band or as a solo act. I would highly recommend him to anyone looking for an experienced guitarist and teacher.

    I've been taking voice lessons with Allison for 4 months. Allison is knowledgable and professional. The lessons are enjoyable and I'm seeing improvement in my singing. I appreciate her willingness to let me choose some of the songs I'm learning and the flexibility to work around my schedule. I'm an older adult who has wanted to take voice lessons for a long time. I'm glad I finally started and that I found the Sharp School of Music.

    Bryan engaged our son from the very first lesson, and focused on his interests. Bryan challenges and encourages him every lesson, and after only a couple months he is loving playing real songs. Highly recommend Bryan!

    About

    You learn to play better, so you can touch more hearts! I teach beginning guitar (all styles), classical guitar (all levels) and music theory and improvisation. I am a former university instructor with 30 years of experience.

    About

    I am a guitar and bass teacher in the Springboro, Ohio, area. My personal musical journey started with piano lessons at age four, and I have been playing and teaching guitar and bass for 26 years. I have received musical theory instruction at the college level as well as from some of the Cincinnati area's finest guitar and bass instructors. My teaching pedagogy blends method with theory through an in-depth analysis of various metal, rock, and/or country styles and techniques that are indigenous to the needs of the student. I am here to help you accomplish your personal musical goals.

    About

    I teach voice and general music. This includes solfege, music theory, and other musical basics. Lessons start out at 1 hour per week, but if more time is requested, a schedule can be worked out. The best thing about music is that everyone can get involved. Everyone can do something. Why not give it a chance?

    About

    My main focus is giving worship guitar lessons to Christians wanting to learn worship-focused techniques. I have strong backgrounds in rock, blues, jazz, as well as being classically trained in college. I take what I have learned about different styles of music and apply it to worship concepts. When you come for lessons, we will first determine where your level of musical knowledge is and start from there. I am able to teach everything, from basic-level chords to advance-level improv soloing. As lessons progress, we will focus on music theory, aural skills, sheet music reading as well as the standard worship guitar repertoire. I am an artist, and I will strive to push you to excellence by developing a lesson plan around your personal style of learning.

    About

    We offer guitar and bass lessons. Our recording studio, Vision Recording Studio, records band-full releasable albums and demos, records radio and television spots, voice-overs, and more. We work with beginners to full time professionals. We also offer management consultation. We consult musicians and bands to help them give their best shot at a career in the music business.

    About

    I am currently a music doctoral candidate at University of Cincinnati. I became a professional pianist since 10 years ago. I have abundant experience in piano teaching. I am also a Chinese native speaker, so I am fluent in both Chinese and English.

    About

    I have over 20 years experience performing, recording, and teaching music, mostly guitar. I know music theory in and out and can play anything I hear from ear. I give personal attention to every student and not only have a vested interest in their progress for their own enjoyment and satisfaction, but also because it reflects me as their teacher. So, instead of going to one of the big music chains and getting charged $30 for a half an hour and a "cookie cutter" lesson, contact me and not only get double the time (a full hour for only $25), but also an instructor who actually wants to help you realize your full potential. Few musicians are actually "gifted". It requires the right instruction, the right instructor and your desire to learn. With that, you can play anything you want!

    About

    I believe that music is a powerful and transformative skill for people of all ages to learn. Children who study music routinely perform better in school and are more likely to graduate. Music education gives the gift of being able to express oneself, which I believe to be one of the greatest gifts a person can give another. In signing for lessons with me, you will have someone in your corner to help explain things like technique, theory, and timbre. I offer the first lesson for free as my chance to audition to be your teacher.

    About

    I'm an engineering student who also enjoys teaching guitar. I teach rock music with electric guitar. I have 11 years of experience. I'm just looking to help out others learn how to play guitar. Playing music has made a big difference in my life, and I'd like for others to have that same opportunity. I am sharing the music with the world.
