Have had a very positive experience with this music studio. I started guitar lessons last fall with Ian Harrah. I am a complete novice - could not be further from being "a natural" - and Ian has been so patient. The owner, Brad, has also been very easy to work with when scheduling my first visit and setting up payments, and he even called just to see how lessons were going. Definitely recommended!
Jimmy has been flexible and responsive. My husband had a wonderful experience beginning guitar lessons. He's expressed looking forward to continued lessons with Jimmy.
I wanted to learn to play the guitar for several years but was always concerned about finding the right instructor. But after taking lessons from John, I wish I had done so earlier as he has been great. John tailors the lessons to the type of music I want to learn to play and suggests good techniques to improve my ability to play the instrument. I was amazed at how well I was playing the guitar after just a few lessons. I would highly recommend him!
Just awesome! Adam is a very good instructor who is very friendly, polite and kind. I was nervous about starting learning something new (in this case, it's a guitar lesson), Adam made the experience so relaxed and enjoyable!! His approach is very well structured and efficient. I love getting lessons from him!!!
My kids have been taken guitar and violin lessons with Lilia, and they love it. She's very professional and friendly. She teaches the kids at the appropriate level and speed. I have truly enjoyed watching them learn their instruments without worrying about their comfort and safety.
I've taken several bass guitar lessons from Dennis and the experience has been great. I wanted to be better player after playing for almost twenty years and he has definitely put me on that path. He was quick to assess my ability and develop lesson plans accordingly. He prepares for my lesson each week and has an excellent teaching method - definitely seeing results already.
My 11yo decided he wanted to learn how to play drums after watching a drum solo video. I called a few places during my search and got no response. Stu responded almost instantly. We went in for a trial session and my son was hooked! Drum lessons with Stu are the only "lessons" my son looks forward to. Stu has a great connection with kids and adults alike. My son is learning much faster than I ever expected.
Charley has given my teenager guitar lessons for almost 3 years. He started with no experience and is now playing both acoustic and electric guitars. Charley is flexible, really good with children/teens, and has a wealth of music knowledge.
I take guitar and clawhammer banjo lessons with Jake, and he's a fantastic teacher. He is always prompt, and comes to the lesson with material he spends time preparing. He's professional, but always makes it fun. I'll probably be adding fiddle lessons before long!
Chris Whitney is a very knowledgeable and encouraging teacher and I highly recommend him to anybody wanting to study guitar in central Ohio. He has a wide-ranging musical vocabulary and is comfortable teaching various styles of music, such as jazz, classical, rock, folk, etc. As I continue my work as a professional classical guitarist, I often look back on my formative years spent with Chris so I can re-connect with the love and energy from those weekly lessons.
When I met Sean in 1981 he was already a very accomplished player. Great technique and no notes that didn't belong. That was 30 years ago! Take a great guitar player and add 30 years of woodsheding, gigs and music knowledge in general and you've got the makings of a superb teacher!
I have been playing for 36 years and can teach anyone how to play.
I have over 30 years of experience in playing and teaching guitar and am certified as a recording engineer. I specialize in folk rock but can play and teach any style. I also play mandolin and electric and upright bass.
I have been playing guitar for 40 plus years. I teach the basics of the guitar. My styles include rock, blues and R&B. I teach you what you want to learn. Remember "you must crawl before you can walk".
I am a current guitar, piano and voice teacher looking to expand my student list. I have been teaching for over a year, and I offer competitive rates among most studios. Rates will vary depending on distance I would have to travel to your home, or if you come to my home studio. I also accept students of all ages. Vocal specialties include rock, jazz, opera and classical.
I am a rock/cover lead guitarist, and I will show how to play your most favorite songs. Plus, I will make midi/MP3 tracks for you to practice along too. I will also show you scales and chord progressions. Once you think you are ready, you can play with the band, or even open for the band with your new group.
I teach guitar to students of all ages and ability levels. As a former high-school teacher, I have experience working with different learning styles and abilities. I also cater my teaching to the desires of the student (and often the parents) when they have specific goals in mind. As more and more schools cut music programs, I have found it useful that I have extensive knowledge of music theory, as this allows me to expand beyond a typical guitar instruction and enrich the student's experience with something they might not get elsewhere.
We care so much about the quality of the music education. We don't want to just teach our students songs. We want them to understand how to be a musician.
I provide guitar lessons for all skill levels. I love teaching kids, but they must be able to do simple addition and subtraction. The rate for a half-hour session is $25, and the full-hour session is $35.
I offer swimming lessons for all ages (location to be determined). My unique guitar lessons will have you strumming away in less than three lessons. My breadth knowledge of English literature and grammar allows me to help in a range, from first-grade spelling to collegiate essay writing.
