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.

I was seeking guitar lessons to improve my entry-level skills and to be able to write some songs. Just under a year later, I understand various different scales (major, minor, and some modes) and when to use them. I also have a comfortable grasp of the different chords and chord shapes. I was planning to focus on just rock n roll but I've been introduced to a much broader array of music including funk, blues, jazz, reggae, and metal as well as different techniques used within each genre. Lessons have been great and have helped me learn not only what to play, but why I'm playing it too. I cannot say enough good things about Justin who has an answer to any question and an accessible teaching style (which is saying a lot when referring to guitar). Every time I leave my lesson I feel that I've improved and I have the support to inspire me to keep improving.

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.

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

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.

I'm an engineering student who also enjoys teaching guitar. I teach rock music with electric guitar. I have 11 years of experience. I'm just looking to help out others learn how to play guitar. Playing music has made a big difference in my life, and I'd like for others to have that same opportunity. I am sharing the music with the world.

About

I have over 20 years experience performing, recording, and teaching music, mostly guitar. I know music theory in and out and can play anything I hear from ear. I give personal attention to every student and not only have a vested interest in their progress for their own enjoyment and satisfaction, but also because it reflects me as their teacher. So, instead of going to one of the big music chains and getting charged $30 for a half an hour and a "cookie cutter" lesson, contact me and not only get double the time (a full hour for only $25), but also an instructor who actually wants to help you realize your full potential. Few musicians are actually "gifted". It requires the right instruction, the right instructor and your desire to learn. With that, you can play anything you want!
