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!
Jimmy has been flexible and responsive. My husband had a wonderful experience beginning guitar lessons. He's expressed looking forward to continued lessons with Jimmy.
I wanted to learn to play the guitar for several years but was always concerned about finding the right instructor. But after taking lessons from John, I wish I had done so earlier as he has been great. John tailors the lessons to the type of music I want to learn to play and suggests good techniques to improve my ability to play the instrument. I was amazed at how well I was playing the guitar after just a few lessons. I would highly recommend him!
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 kids have been taken guitar and violin lessons with Lilia, and they love it. She's very professional and friendly. She teaches the kids at the appropriate level and speed. I have truly enjoyed watching them learn their instruments without worrying about their comfort and safety.
I am extraordinarily pleased with my ukulele lessons with Steven Fox. In just a very short time, I have already started playing. He is a consummate professional and quite a talented musician. I'm excited to go to the lessons every week!
I have taken singing lessons from Mrs. Sturgis for 3 years now, and I have seriously learned more than I ever thought possible. In just three years, I went from not really knowing how to sing (and only a very basic knowledge of musical notes) to preparing to take music lessons at a college level! And I owe it all to her. She is a phenomenal teacher and I couldn't have asked for a better one. She is incredibly knowledgeable, forever patient, completely dedicated, is always willing to explain things as many times as need be, and maintains an open and pleasant atmosphere which made learning not only educational but incredibly fun and rewarding. She is truly outstanding, and I would recommend her to ANYBODY who wants to learn about music and how to perform it.
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.
I had been taking lessons elsewhere for five years before switching to SFS a year ago. I have learned more about music theory and structure in the past year than I did in the previous five combined. My song writing has really taken off as a result, and SFS has helped me achieve all my personal music goals in the process. Thanks SFS!
I took my 10 year old son to Z. Guitar Studio hoping guitar lessons would help overcome his low self esteem. After just two lessons my son was smiling when the lesson was over and telling me how 'cool' it was to play a guitar! He looks forward to every lesson. Z. Guitar Studio knew how to put my son at ease and shows genuine happiness on his improvement at the end of each lesson. I highly recommend Z. Guitar Studio because there is no pressure to spend tons of money and the lesson is based on helping my son to improve at his level and ability. A very professional studio. Thank you Z. Guitar Studio!!
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.
I spent years learning guitar from anyone anywhere that I could. I went to instructors working out of mom n pop guitar shops, that would charge $20/hr. to teach a song out of a tab book I HAD PURCHASED!! I always thought that was insane! Other instructors would teach proper technique, but then cut me loose, citing "There's nothing more for me to teach you". I always felt that technique should be the first thing learned, and then basic barre chords, followed by songs/tricks/etc! Wouldn't that make more sense? The Van method will assess your level of ability, and devise a personalized practice regiment that's just right for you. Even if you're a beginner, or moderately seasoned, there's always something new to discover!
I have been playing for 36 years and can teach anyone how to play.
I have over 30 years of experience in playing and teaching guitar and am certified as a recording engineer. I specialize in folk rock but can play and teach any style. I also play mandolin and electric and upright bass.
I provide guitar lessons for all skill levels. I love teaching kids, but they must be able to do simple addition and subtraction. The rate for a half-hour session is $25, and the full-hour session is $35.
I am a current guitar, piano and voice teacher looking to expand my student list. I have been teaching for over a year, and I offer competitive rates among most studios. Rates will vary depending on distance I would have to travel to your home, or if you come to my home studio. I also accept students of all ages. Vocal specialties include rock, jazz, opera and classical.
I am a rock/cover lead guitarist, and I will show how to play your most favorite songs. Plus, I will make midi/MP3 tracks for you to practice along too. I will also show you scales and chord progressions. Once you think you are ready, you can play with the band, or even open for the band with your new group.
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.
I have been playing guitar for 40 plus years. I teach the basics of the guitar. My styles include rock, blues and R&B. I teach you what you want to learn. Remember "you must crawl before you can walk".
I've been studying music for ten years and giving informal lessons for seven years. I played guitar in the Columbus Youth Jazz Orchestra and have played guitar and bass for various rock and jazz gigs. More importantly, I have a talent for communicating and explaining the language of music, as well as the language used in instructional books and videos. The most complicated musical concepts and techniques can be made simple if they are broken down into smaller parts and practiced.
