I have been taking lessons from Trent for a month or so now and he is great. I have been playing guitar for almost 19 years and decided to go back and learn theory and enjoy it a ton. He is able to break thoughts down and explain them in a way one can understand. Highly recommended!!

Trent is an excellent teacher who inspires you to learn your favorite songs while learning about the guitar itself at a reasonable price.

We feel lucky to have found Trent to introduce our 10 yr old to the guitar. He is patient, thorough, and knowledgable.

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.

Jeremy is a superb teacher. After five lessons with him, I am playing jazz chord melody arrangements that I never dreamed I could execute. Jeremy explains complex musical ideas in language I can understand. When we're working on a song I not only learn how to play it but also what makes the song tick, and how I can apply that knowledge to other situations. He is patient, has a great sense of humor, and seems to know exactly what I need to learn next. I appreciate that he allows me to progress at my own pace and offers multiple techniques for achieving a particular playing goal so that I can find the approach that works best for me. I come away from each lesson fired up with new ideas that I'm eager to bring to the fretboard. I highly recommend Jeremy to anyone looking for a guitar teacher. Whether you're a novice or an experienced player, he'll help you take your playing to the next level and he'll make your guitar journey a fun ride!

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.

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.

Justin has something really great going on with Ohio Music Pro. His lessons helped me tremendously! He is eager to help and patient throughout the learning process. My knowledge and skill on the guitar increased faster than I could have imagined. I would highly recommend any type of musical lessons through Ohio Music Pro. Thanks Justin!

Scott"s enthusiasum for teaching guitar shows in every session we've had. Teaching guitar to Ron P,50, is like teaching chinese algebra to a parakeet. His infinite patience, knowledge of the instument and love of music, keeps me coming back. I totally recommend Scott if you really want to play guitar.

John is an excellent teacher with students of piano of all abilities. His patience is admirable and he takes his time with his students. He also asks the students be they young or adults to practice before each meeting to see what improvements have been made. I can't say enough about the superb abilities of this teacher as compared to other piano teachers in the area. You will be fortunate to have Mr. Toedtman accept your child as one of his proteges.

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.

Ric's studio is a good distance from where I live but I hired him to teach me guitar because of his great credentials, his quick responses to my inquiries and because he seemed undaunted that I was a complete novice. It did not take long for Ric and I to establish a rapport. Rather than insist on his agenda, he asked about my goals and he has been expertly and patiently guiding me toward achieving them. Ric makes it fun but he does insist on building good habits and technique, and this is important to me since I want to learn the right way. Since I learned my first "C" chord months ago I have had a great deal of fun playing many of the songs I loved when I was a young man - I highly recommend Ric - a great gentleman and a super instructor!!

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!

Andy taught for Loveland Music Academy for nearly 10 years. During his time with LMA, he was the most requested guitar instructor on the faculty. In addition to both acoustic and electric guitar, Andy teaches bass guitar, ukulele, mandolin, and percussion. Another exciting aspect for his students is his detailed attention to lesson plans for the needs and interests of each individual student. Both kids and adults enjoy his sense of humor and knowledge of a wide variety of musical genres, and parents appreciated that their kids enjoyed the lessons while learning the necessary basics of a solid music education. While we were thrilled for him to marry Ashlee and move to their home in Hamilton, we were sorry to lose him to the distance and wish him much success in his own studio, AM Sound. We know that he will be successful in his new endeavor, from teaching to composing to recording and sound engineering.

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.

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.

He will push you to play better He is not just a great guitarist but a great teacher also. I would highly recommend him not only for beginners but experience to guitar players as well

I had a guitar teacher named Phil Black, and he was a very cool dude. But in five years, I learned practically nothing from the man...ended up getting lessons from Geoff, and now I know what I'm doing. He really knows what he's doing, but I'm sure Phil did as well. The difference is that Geoff can actually teach you what you need to know with ease and simplicity. Highly recommend.

Jeff is by far one of the best and most versatile guitarist I have ever known. As a musician with 35 years experience I would happily pay to share in his skill and knowledge. I have found him to be patient with the beginners, and challenging for the more experienced. An all-around excellent teacher!

I've been taking voice lessons with Allison for 4 months. Allison is knowledgable and professional. The lessons are enjoyable and I'm seeing improvement in my singing. I appreciate her willingness to let me choose some of the songs I'm learning and the flexibility to work around my schedule. I'm an older adult who has wanted to take voice lessons for a long time. I'm glad I finally started and that I found the Sharp School of Music.

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.

Extremely patient teacher. Customize lessons to each student. I'm happy to teach beginning students.

About

I can teach you to play guitar! I offer beginning and intermediate guitar lessons to students ages 8 and up on acoustic or electric guitar.

About

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

I teach the students what they want to learn. I don't use the same lesson plan for every student. Each student has a personal lesson plan made specifically for what they want.

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.
