Professional, friendly, and knowledgeable, I highly recommend Natalie for voice and piano lessons.
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!
I've known Paul for over 20 years. I was his student for 3-4 years back in the early 2000's. I became friends with him through my classical guitar lessons & we have been close ever since. I fell in love with his philosophy for teaching. It is so different (and simple). He asked me what I want to play, then proceeded to take me to that goal on the quickest path possible. He did't tell me I have to do this or that; play scales; learn elementary stuff and then advance from there. He just said "what would you like to learn to do?" Paul's gift is not in teaching people music theory or an instrument... his real and obvious gift is in his ability to "teach people how to learn". Then he simply guides you on your path of study. Paul, without doubt, is "one of a kind"
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 am extraordinarily pleased with my ukulele lessons with Steven Fox. In just a very short time, I have already started playing. He is a consummate professional and quite a talented musician. I'm excited to go to the lessons every week!
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 took my 10 year old son to Z. Guitar Studio hoping guitar lessons would help overcome his low self esteem. After just two lessons my son was smiling when the lesson was over and telling me how 'cool' it was to play a guitar! He looks forward to every lesson. Z. Guitar Studio knew how to put my son at ease and shows genuine happiness on his improvement at the end of each lesson. I highly recommend Z. Guitar Studio because there is no pressure to spend tons of money and the lesson is based on helping my son to improve at his level and ability. A very professional studio. Thank you Z. Guitar Studio!!
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.

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.
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".
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 have been playing for 36 years and can teach anyone how to play.
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 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.
