I've been taking guitar lessons with Christian for about a month now and I can honestly say I'm really pleased with the experience. It's clear that Christian has a love and talent for music and has chosen to share it with others. I've tried to teach myself guitar on and off for 10 years and never got far. Now, a month in, I'm already starting to learn my first song. Christian is organized with planned lessons based on the level you're at and teaches you the tools you need in order to play and eventually even write - including music theory. He's patient, can explain things in a way that makes it easy to understand, and there's never any rush to learn a new step before you're ready which - as a student w/ two jobs - keeps lessons and practice fun and easier to stick with since I feel like I can take my time and learn at my own pace. If you're looking to learn guitar, definitely give Christian a call.

Have had a very positive experience with this music studio. I started guitar lessons last fall with Ian Harrah. I am a complete novice - could not be further from being "a natural" - and Ian has been so patient. The owner, Brad, has also been very easy to work with when scheduling my first visit and setting up payments, and he even called just to see how lessons were going. Definitely recommended!

I've been taking guitar lessons with Jimmy for over a year and with him I have learned lots of techniques, foundational knowledge, musicianship and an overall method for studying music. I look forward to each lesson, as I know it will be a comfortable place to explore music and he always has something new to work on that is a great next step-- Every time! Jimmy is always generous with his knowledge, experience and enthusiasm and I plan to keep learning with him for a long time.

Just awesome! Adam is a very good instructor who is very friendly, polite and kind. I was nervous about starting learning something new (in this case, it's a guitar lesson), Adam made the experience so relaxed and enjoyable!! His approach is very well structured and efficient. I love getting lessons from him!!!

My 11yo decided he wanted to learn how to play drums after watching a drum solo video. I called a few places during my search and got no response. Stu responded almost instantly. We went in for a trial session and my son was hooked! Drum lessons with Stu are the only "lessons" my son looks forward to. Stu has a great connection with kids and adults alike. My son is learning much faster than I ever expected.

I have been taking guitar lessons from Paul for over ten years. As a retired teacher, I seek out and appreciate good teaching. Paul knows music and knows how to inspire as well as push when a push is needed. He is always punctual and continually helps me to produce my best work and be the best I can be.He has taught guitar but also worked with me on piano. He is excellent.

Charley has given my teenager guitar lessons for almost 3 years. He started with no experience and is now playing both acoustic and electric guitars. Charley is flexible, really good with children/teens, and has a wealth of music knowledge.

Chris Whitney is a very knowledgeable and encouraging teacher and I highly recommend him to anybody wanting to study guitar in central Ohio. He has a wide-ranging musical vocabulary and is comfortable teaching various styles of music, such as jazz, classical, rock, folk, etc. As I continue my work as a professional classical guitarist, I often look back on my formative years spent with Chris so I can re-connect with the love and energy from those weekly lessons.

My 4 year old daughter and I have been taking piano lessons for the past 4 months. We have a wonderful teacher in Philip. He is so patient with my daughter and so helpful to me. It is so easy to have the lessons in our home. I don't have to worry about traffic, being late, or rounding up my daughter to get to lessons. PLIYH also has a wonderful lending library so you don't have to buy many books. I would recommend them to anyone.

My 10-year old daughter has been taking piano lessons with Ms. Lilia for over 2 years now. She has taken my daughter's talent from not only being able to play the instrument but encouraging her creativity. As a result of her teaching/coaching my daughter has been able to become more creative in playing and wrote a few songs. I highly recommend her to anyone.

About

I teach guitar to students of all ages and ability levels. As a former high-school teacher, I have experience working with different learning styles and abilities. I also cater my teaching to the desires of the student (and often the parents) when they have specific goals in mind. As more and more schools cut music programs, I have found it useful that I have extensive knowledge of music theory, as this allows me to expand beyond a typical guitar instruction and enrich the student's experience with something they might not get elsewhere.

About

We offer musical lessons of all kinds, and we are specializing in guitar of all levels: beginner, intermediate and beyond.I will work closely with you to find out exactly what you want to learn.Fast, and produce the best possible results. Plus, you'll have a good time doing it! Guitar instruction is important to me simply because I have experienced so much in my life and have learned a number of key concepts of what to do to understand the guitar (and what NOT to do!). I believe I am very good at teaching, not simply because I understand the guitar, but because I understand the students. Looking forward to hearing from you. Happy Holidays!, Mark
