I have been taking electric guitar lessons for a 18 months and Samantha is an excellent teacher for players from any level. She has a depth of technical knowledge, different styles of playing and most importantly, she makes it fun and interesting. It is rare to find a skilled guitar player who is also a skilled teacher, and Samantha is both.

I started taking his piano lessons only about a month ago, but it''s been such a great joy to work with him. He constantly assesses my weaknesses and strengths, and plans my lessons accordingly. He also listens carefully to what I like and what I want to do, too. I live a bit far from his studio, but it's totally worth it. I highly recommend him!

Alex has been working with our teen son for a year. He has taught him to play guitar and bass. Alex is the perfect match for our teenager. He allows him to choose the music he learns and plays. .. Alex can get down and jam and which makes the learning process very fun! We will continue to work with Alex indefinitely.

If you’re looking for a unique approach to learning bass or guitar, then New Verse is where it’s at. Cameron is an excellent teacher through and through; professional, knowledgeable, articulate and always centered on the student having fun throughout their musical journey. The special thing about lessons with Cameron is that songs are decided based on the student’s choosing, meaning you can either request songs that you vibe to or you can select songs that are already in his collection, which is great for exposing you to music that might be outside of your normal realm. Through these songs you’ll learn everything from playing techniques to musical composition to tidbits on theory. Cameron does an amazing job at explaining why things are the way they are in music and if you’re keen on learning more about theory he’s a great conversationalist for doing so, which will 100% heighten your understanding. Aside from learning about music itself, he will also guide you on practicing methods so you can improve your performance on your own time. Although I began my initial bass lessons with a choppy background in reading music and comprehending theory - not to mention rusty on playing techniques - it’s thanks to Cameron’s distinctive teaching style that my world has been opened to music in a whole new way.

Hayden is the very best bass teacher you could want! He's fun, creative, knowledgeable and experienced!!! My son only agreed to take bass lessons for a phone. Now my son does not want to miss a lesson with Hayden!! I don't have to ask my son to practice either!! Because of Hayden my son began playing on a worship team in like 6 months or less(can't really remember bc it was so fast!) and then sometime with in that first year my son played the bass in a gig with Hayden's band and Daniel was Awesome!!!

I started taking bass lessons with Zachary several years ago. He was great at teaching techniques, understanding how to fit into the rhythm and how to get the groove. Highly recommended for beginners to advanced players.

Great teacher! I began taking guitar lessons from Jason about six years ago and I have grown a tremendous amount as a guitarist from his teaching. He caters his teaching strategy to what works best for you personally, allowing you to learn in the best way possible. I'd highly recommend taking lessons from him!

Found Neil and the Montavilla Guitar Studio through a neighborhood Facebook page. He has been giving our 8 year old daughter private guitar lessons for 3 months now, with great patience and so many fun, innovative teaching techniques! His studio/teaching space is cozy and welcoming, he clearly enjoys teaching lessons, and has a natural knack for working with children (which is no small feat). We have been incredibly pleased with the caliber of teacher we've found in Neil. (If you are just beginning lessons - he also offers a complimentary "find a guitar" session where he meets you at a local guitar shop to pick an instrument that'll work well. Great way get a newbie musician excited about what's to come!)

Ron taught piano to both my son (kindergarten through 6th grade) and daughter (first through fifth grade). Both children flourished under Ron's student-driven approach to learning. Ron is patient and kind and takes time to understand each child's unique learning requirements, while helping them find joy in their musicianship. He transitioned both children to different instruments at their request, and their piano foundation was extremely helpful in both cases. My son continues to meet with Ron a few times each month to study jazz guitar and bass. Both kids will always have a lifelong foundation in music, and a strong appreciation of it as well. Thank you Ron!

I really enjoyed the lesson I received from Owen, he was very knowledgeable about his instrument and I intend to take more lessons from him in the future, I highly recommend anyone looking for an introduction and beginning lessons on the Bass guitar to give him a shot. He has great rates that are very affordable, and from my experience, he's always developing to become a better educator every day.

I took private piano lessons with Tamara for 5 1/2 years. She is very patient and willing to teach students to play whatever genre of music they want to learn whether it's classical, jazz, contemporary, Disney, etc. Her patient, kind-hearted nature works well with students of all ages. She is also quite flexible in regard to scheduling; if you can't make it to a lesson, she makes every effort to schedule a make-up lesson.

Hey everyone! My name is Benjamin Copsey. I am 21 years old, very friendly and open to anyone with a passion for music. I have been a guitar instructor for 5 years now and would like to expand my clientele. In my classes, it's up to the student what they want to learn! For example, if you or your child wanted to learn guitar so you could play your favorite song and determined to learn it in a week, I would be the man to go to.
