Trent is an excellent teacher who inspires you to learn your favorite songs while learning about the guitar itself at a reasonable price.
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.
I'm a beginning / intermediate bass player getting back into it after not playing for a lot of years, and trying to learn to do jazz bass stuff for a jazz trio with some friends. Every time I mention a song we're doing, Jeremy knows all kinds of stuff about the song, its history, the chord progressions, etc, and has been really helpful at increasing my comfort doing walking bass lines. It's been a great way to pick up lots of jazz and music theory and context that wouldn't have been easy to pick up on my own. I'm a few lessons in, and so far: great guy, great lessons.
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.
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.
Andy was my instructor on the Bass Guitar for two years . I learned a lot of techniques and music.
I have to say that I am absolutely thrilled with the quality of guitar lessons Jon and Release Musician Development Academy provide my eleven year old daughter. Jon's professionalism is excellent and the knowledge he conveys to his students is phenomenal. Jon always goes above and beyond to make the time spent in class fun, meaningful, and challenging. My daughter always comes home in a brighter mood than when she arrived. She has a strong sense of accomplishment and feels good about what she was able to learn and perfect. Jon provides thorough homework that he calls a "workout schedule" for his students. It is timed and very specific, which allows students to make the most out of their practice time. There is no guesswork, which is so helpful for my 6th grade daughter. She enjoys the "workouts" and I don't have to nag her to practice. Even during the holidays, when we were on break, Jon emailed us some fresh assignments to keep my child progressing. At that time, he also sent us a song my daughter had recorded in his studio. It was so heartwarming, it brought tears to my eyes. I highly recommend Release Musician Development Academy for new students, as well as for those who have already had lessons in the past.
Cesry has been my music instructor for just about two months now and I must say I have been very happy with him so far. I am almost certain he would make me see my late dream come true - read music and play the piano to entertain myself and my wife , both of us retirees . I highly recommend Cesry to any one interested in music and how to play the piano, most especially any one who feels that age could be a barrier to them. Yoma.
I have been taking lessons from John for going on 8 years and it has been one of the best experiences I have had! He has taught me so much about theory and just how to play the guitar in general. I could not see my self taking lessons from anyone else now or in the future. John really knows his stuff and what he is doing!
Parisa had a good location and set up, with helpful tools we used. We worked on some chords and started putting together a song. She helped me with my hand position and learning more chords.

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 believe in what I do.
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.
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.
