We gave my Dad Jazz guitar lessons for Christmas. He is an experienced amateur guitar player who is 51 yr old and wants to take his playing to the next level. He is an engineer that needs to feed his creative side. He said it was the best gift ever! Thanks for all of your help!
My daughter has been going to Forte Mustic Studios for piano lessons for about 6 months now and she absolutely loves it and progressed quickly! Her piano instructed, Jody, and her always have a great time together. She is patient, kind and encouraging. My daughter loves to practices so that when she gets to lessons Ms. Jody will be proud of how well she can play her practice pieces. Classes are affordable and they have a wide range of lessons available!
I came to Garret for some theory related guitar lessons. I've been playing for quite some time but always wanted to get further into the theory side of things. His methods make the concepts very easy to understand and apply in every-day playing.
Taking guitar lessons from Ivan aka "Big Ive" has been a wonderful experience. I'm learning much more than I imagined -- music theory, how to practice, etc. He is very knowledgeable and has a great way of explaining concepts in simple and memorable terms. As a beginner, I didn't know what to expect. Big Ive challenges me and that is great. Now, my expectations for myself are high. I highly recommend him as an instructor.
Charlie has a wonderful laid-back personality. My son likes Charlie and never dreaded going to lessons. Also, Charlie is just really skilled on the guitar! I have no hesitation in recommending Charlie to anyone needing a great guitar teacher.
I'm glad I chose Tyler Aukerman for my guitar teacher. He is a clear teacher, very knowledgeable about guitar and music theory, attentive to his students needs, while also organized and timely. I had another teacher in the past but he had no professional training and as a result was a very poor teacher. I've never had this issue with Tyler. I'd recommend him to anyone parent looking for a teacher for their kid or adult looking to take lessons.
I offer affordable beginner to intermediate guitar lessons for all ages in your home or mine. I am a patient, thorough instructor.
I have been playing guitar for over 10 years, mastering several genres, including, but are not limited to, rock, jazz, blues, acoustic, Latin, and R&B. I also received a scholarship to play guitar for the jazz studies program in U of M's School of Music, and I am currently a student there. My rates will vary depending on the needs of the student.
If your reading this chances are you are interested in learning to play guitar, which is fantastic! But beware, choosing the wrong teacher to study with will be detrimental to your progress as a musician. Many instructors tend to use a "responsive" teaching method, which will eventually bring you to a dead end in your progress. We find that using a "proactive" method pushes our students (which could be you!) to excel at a rapid pace. In order to achieve this we first find out what the student hopes to achieve as a guitar/bass player, and then create a structured lesson plan to help get them there. The goal here is to make you the best guitarist you can be, and to make sure you have a great time doing it!
Because my teaching program I have developed will train you at a faster rate than any other program out there :)
I am a young guitarist in two bands, and I love leaving people to play instruments of guitar and bass. It is best to bring your own guitar.
I am a well versed musician and I am great at teaching guitar and playing acoustic performaces

Firstly, I am incredibly good at sight reading - it is a stereotype that guitarist are poor readers of music! I am also deeply interested and knowledgeable in many kinds of music. I like exploring the connections between genres - like jazz, rock, and classical - in my playing and in my compositions. I offer that openness to all my students, and often burn CDs for them to expose them to new kinds of music.
I've been teaching guitar at GC Studios since we've opened. I also offer less structured private lessons outside of Guitar Center. Let me know what's up, and we'll make this happen!
