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.

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.

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 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.

The purpose of the Well Oiled Vocal Studio is to provide each student with the tools they need to produce easy and beautiful sounds in all genres, using practical instruction and positive reinforcement. I specializes in college -- prep as well as postgraduate repertoire. My audition knowledge and close relationship with many voice faculty around the country helps my sense of repertoire choices for young and mature singers alike. Though all students are welcome to audition, the private studio does not take students younger than thirteen years old.

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.
