I have been taking electric guitar lessons with Mark for almost 7 years, and he's an incredible teacher. Very patient with beginners, and full of wisdom and knowledge concerning not only the guitar, but music as a whole. 10/10 I would recommend him to anyone looking to learn the guitar as a novice or improve their skills as an intermediate musician.

Ive been taking guitar lessons with Kyle now for about 8-9 months and its been great. Highly recommend doing it if your on the fence. I started learning guitar on nothing more than a whim and now I've progressed beyond what i though i would be at this point. Kyle is flexible at catering to what ever music style you are familiar with or like it just so happens we have similar taste so that was an added bonus.

My 12 year old son David has been taking weekly guitar lessons with Tom for the past 15 months. During this time I've seen David grow by leaps-and-bounds both as an individual and as a guitar player. Tom's teaching style is very motivating. He is both gentle and firm, very encouraging, highly skilled, and extremely passionate about music. His love of music is contagious, and he is very driven to provide my son with a rewarding/fulfilling experience. I've enjoyed watching my son's confidence grow with his playing abilities, as he's risen to meet Tom's well chosen challenges. I would highly recommend lessons with Tom to anyone wishing to grow as a musician.

My daughter has been taking saxaphone lessons from Scott this past year. She loves to go to the lessons as Scott mixes things up to keep it encouraging. Works very well with children and keeps me informed of how things are progressing.

Guitar lessons with Sam are the highlight of my week! Sam's deep passion for music is infectious in his lessons. He has the special gift of helping his students feel the same excitement he feels about music. As his student, I felt his support from the first note I played on guitar. He is one of the most positive people I have ever met and helps me embrace the challenges of learning a new instrument, rather than fear them. He breaks down concepts so that they are easy to understand and makes learning guitar extremely fun. When I leave a lesson with Sam, I am inspired to practice for hours, not because he asked me to, but because of the excitement he passed on to me in our lessons. I feel so lucky to have him as my teacher and do not want to imagine studying with anyone else!! (In addition to being an incredible music educator, Sam is also an amazing performer. Watching him play at concerts further inspires his students to want to practice. He is the real deal and carries out what he teaches in his own life. He is a great role model.)

Tyson did a great job! My daughter's wedding was a small affair. The marriage ceremony, reception, dinner, and after party were all performed in the same facility . Not only did he entertain the guests at the after party with the music they wanted for dancing (He takes requests). But he also plays acoustic guitar. He accompanied my daughter's sister (a great singer herself) with his guitar during the wedding ceremony and with a tribute song at the reception. Everything went off as planned. It was a great day!!!

Very funny, polite, he asks only for your best effort-beginners through advanced students will be challenged by Jeff's teaching.

About

I offer guitar lessons to kids who are either just picking up a guitar, or who have been playing for a little while, but need direction in order to advance. I love working with kids of any age and showing them how rewarding this instrument can be! As I have matured as a musician, I have learned that there are three areas one must master as a guitarist. 1) Technique- HOW to play mechanically 2) Theory- WHAT to play. The science of music. 3) Composition- YOUR music. What makes your playing different from everyone else? It is my goal to show kids how to progress in each of these three areas.
