I have been taking lessons from Trent for a month or so now and he is great. I have been playing guitar for almost 19 years and decided to go back and learn theory and enjoy it a ton. He is able to break thoughts down and explain them in a way one can understand. Highly recommended!!

I'm a beginning / intermediate bass player getting back into it after not playing for a lot of years, and trying to learn to do jazz bass stuff for a jazz trio with some friends. Every time I mention a song we're doing, Jeremy knows all kinds of stuff about the song, its history, the chord progressions, etc, and has been really helpful at increasing my comfort doing walking bass lines. It's been a great way to pick up lots of jazz and music theory and context that wouldn't have been easy to pick up on my own. I'm a few lessons in, and so far: great guy, great lessons.

John invited me to have a free lesson as soon as after my phone calll. This first free lesson gave me a good impression of the school that he presented. He was friendly and flexible. This is my experience meeting John Toedtman for the first lesson. I am looking forward to learning piano from him.

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.

My experience has been excellent with Ric. He is a great guitar instructor. He is also very friendly and flexible. I enjoy my lessons, but I also enjoy our conversations. The studio is really cool too. My recommendation speaks for itself, as I will be signing up my seven-year-old son with Ric for his first guitar lessons. Thumbs up!

Cesry has been instructing my son, Austin, on guitar for a few months. Austin has Asperger's syndrome, and Cesry does a great job of communicating with him and finding the best ways to teach him. Cesry is very reliable with communicating about scheduling and showing up on time or early for lessons. He clearly has a passion for teaching music and helping kids succeed. He leaves clear notes for Austin about what they did during the lesson and what Austin should work on during the week. Cesry is always courteous and kind, and we are very blessed to have him as Austin's guitar teacher.

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 had a guitar teacher named Phil Black, and he was a very cool dude. But in five years, I learned practically nothing from the man...ended up getting lessons from Geoff, and now I know what I'm doing. He really knows what he's doing, but I'm sure Phil did as well. The difference is that Geoff can actually teach you what you need to know with ease and simplicity. Highly recommend.

I have to say that I am absolutely thrilled with the quality of guitar lessons Jon and Release Musician Development Academy provide my eleven year old daughter. Jon's professionalism is excellent and the knowledge he conveys to his students is phenomenal. Jon always goes above and beyond to make the time spent in class fun, meaningful, and challenging. My daughter always comes home in a brighter mood than when she arrived. She has a strong sense of accomplishment and feels good about what she was able to learn and perfect. Jon provides thorough homework that he calls a "workout schedule" for his students. It is timed and very specific, which allows students to make the most out of their practice time. There is no guesswork, which is so helpful for my 6th grade daughter. She enjoys the "workouts" and I don't have to nag her to practice. Even during the holidays, when we were on break, Jon emailed us some fresh assignments to keep my child progressing. At that time, he also sent us a song my daughter had recorded in his studio. It was so heartwarming, it brought tears to my eyes. I highly recommend Release Musician Development Academy for new students, as well as for those who have already had lessons in the past.

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!

I am here to help you accomplish your personal musical goals.

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.
