Junbo has done a great job helping me learn Mandarin. He has been especially helpful with getting my pronunciation right, which I think has to do with the fact that he is a professional singer. The lessons are fun too and include a bit of Chinese culture as well.
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.
I just went to my first lesson with Jeremy! I couldn't be happier. I am someone that has always wanted to learn how to play guitar and warned him that I had never picked one up before. He was completely prepared with a beginner lesson for me and a list of things to practice before our next lesson. I am thrilled I found him on Thumbtack.
Everything! Jon Price’s teaching qualities are suited to your needs and goals. He makes guitar lessons so much fun . He has alot of experience and has you playing songs of your choice quickly. The “Price” is right (the cost of lessons and Jon Price). I highly recommend Release Musicians.
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!
If you want to learn to play the guitar, whether you are a beginner or more advanced and want to improve your skills and knowledge of music theory to become a professional player, then I highly recommend contacting Justin Slusher of Ohio Guitar Pro, Fairborn, OH. He has both a prestigious academic background (graduate of the selective Berklee College of Music, Boston MA.) and professional experience acquired by playing in multiple bands from LA to Atlantic City. As a student, what I appreciate most is his patience to let me learn at my own speed without feeling pressured. He truly loves teaching. He gets as excited for me as I do when I learn a new skill or play a new lead solo piece correctly. I feel free to ask (or re-ask) any question about music theory, get advise regarding equipment, or just to ask for a refresher on a previously taught playing technique. Justin has a remarkably trained ear and can write note-for-note instructions on how to play any song that I show up to my lesson with. He has been my instructor for about 10 years ... I have learned that learning is a never ending process ... it just depends on how good you want to be. Whatever level you are at, i'm confident that Justin Slusher can take your playing to the next level.

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!

Mr. Zhu is a gifted and highly accomplished pianist, and a winner of international and national piano competitions.

Loved this photoshoot, loved the quality of the pictures!!! This was my first time getting my pictures taken at a photoshoot like this, and I could not have asked for a better experience! Taylor has an amazing eye for photography, you could tell she knew exactly what she was doing. I can’t wait to find an excuse to have another photoshoot!
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.
