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.

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.

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.

Lou is the real deal!!! I would highly recommend taking guitar lessons with Lou whether you are a beginner (like myself) or advanced and just want further instruction. He has been in the music industry for years, is extremely knowledgeable, and is super personable. I found Lou's contact information on Thumbtack and I could not be happier learning how to play.

My son, Alex, says, "Josh is an amazing guitar teacher! He is very knowledgeable in music and is qualified to teach anything from beginner guitar to professional. He has been a joy to work with, someone who can get along with anyone. Josh helped me prepare for my college guitar audition, (which was the primary reason I sought out a teacher this past year) and it went very well, I was awarded lots of scholarship money and was accepted into the music program in Nashville I applied for! He has been so helpful already that I have decided to keep taking lessons from him weekly to better prepare myself for music school this Fall, when I go down to Nashville for the start of my Freshman year! Thank you Josh, you have been a blessing!"

    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.

    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.
