Patient, intelligent, talented… Those are just three of the qualities that Maxime displays as a guitar teacher. I started taking guitar lessons from him last year and to be honest, at first I was somewhat concerned about taking music lessons over the Internet. But it’s worked out quite well. And although I am a beginning guitar player, I’m not an inexperienced music student. After undergraduate studies in music. I went to Juilliard on scholarship before going on to perform all over the world. Lincoln Center, Carnegie Hall, recording contract with Sony. Recorded at Abbey Rd. Studios with the London Philharmonic, PBS radio and TV performances with leading orchestras and opera companies and along the way more voice lessons than I can remember…. 😬 so if there’s one thing I’ve done a lot of it’s take private music lessons. From a lot of people. Some good, some bad, and some great. And I have no qualms about recommending Max to either a beginning or advanced guitar student. He does a great job and is very organized in his teaching. So if you’re thinking of taking lessons give him a try. I think you’ll be very happy. Did I mention that is also a really nice guy…? 😎 Les young
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!
Attila is an experienced and trained musician, and his teaching of the guitar is interesting. He brings standard techniques at the beginning and branches out using various interests and goals that I have set coming into the lessons. Due to his teaching, a short-range goal has grown into a deeper satisfaction for continuing to pursue the guitar at a higher level. I highly recommend Attila to every level of guitar player.
Helen, was AMAZING, she taught my 6 yr daughter her first piano lesson. We were going to try out a few different teachers, but after meeting her, I have no interest going anywhere else. Thank you for being so friendly and so talented! <3 A few things that were important to me were, 1. She could connect with my 6 year old. 2. That she could teach syllabus. 3. That she has opportunities for her students to perform during the year. She met all three of those. :)
I highly recommend Tim Smith as a teacher in many areas of music. I am so elated to be taking cello lessons with this fine teacher! Tim is multi-talented and able to challenge me through every level of musical growth. I appreciate his individual teaching style which allows each student to progress at their own personal rate. He is flexible and accommodating with lesson times and his rates are right in line with the local teaching market.
I have had three guitar lessons with Cameron and have found him to be extremely knowledgeable, patient, encouraging, and positive. As a beginner guitar student I would highly recommend him if you've toyed with the idea of learning but have been intimidated or put it off for any other reason. Cameron presents the information/exercises in just the right amounts for me thereby preventing frustration with the material and instead increasing my confidence and enjoyment.
The amount of time and effort Austin dedicates to his music is truly inspiring! Just watching him talk and teach others about the guitar is amazing. He’s patience and truly enjoys explaining the different techniques and notes. Regardless of the amount of experience you have with guitar, I can bet after working with him you’ll have a greater appreciation for music in general!
Jeremy is a fantastic instructor. I took piano lessons from him with an emphasis on music theory. He expertly calibrated the lessons to my level of experience with both and as well as my learning speed. He has an easygoing and encouraging presence, and explains concepts in several different ways, making them easier to understand and remember. I had a lot of fun. Thanks, Jeremy!
We had piano and guitar lessons a good part of last year and will continue this year for our home schooling students It's fantastic instruction - and we can participate in recitals thru skype as well! It's great for us, we live in WY and MT! HIGHLY RECOMMEND!
I originally went to Ky for harmonica lessons in Flagstaff after playing around with the instrument by myself for a couple of years. I wanted to learn how to play music with others. Ky tailored my lessons to me and taught me the basics. He played guitar along with me so I could get used to playing with people. Soon after, I picked up guitar and decided to see him for that as well. He was a great instructor for guitar too! Even for a complete beginner like me. He was very patient and helped me pick songs to master and skills to work on in areas where I needed improvement. Most of all, the lessons were fun and not frustrating! I walked out of each lesson feeling challenged, but accomplished and excited by the music we played. Ky is a very talented musician, teacher, and just a really cool, down to earth guy. Check him out!
I've been with Tamara for the past 11 years and I've had such an amazing musical experience. Starting with piano and then extending my class time to fit in guitar and ukelele lessons, she's one of the most talented and versatile musicians I know. In addition, class times were flexible. The teaching environment was always very comfortable and supportive. Allowing her students to play what they were interested in and giving them a chance to explore different genres of music really enhanced my understanding and interest for music.
My husband and I hired Ryan to perform at our daughters wedding reception this past fall. We first heard Ryan perform at the Portland Airport while waiting for our plane, and were immediately attracted to his beautiful music. We approached him and he was gracious enough to take the time to talk with us and answer all our questions/concerns (and gave us a free CD so we could listen to his music in-depth). We were sold!! Ryan is a very gifted and talented artist. His repertoire is extensive and varied and includes many the best known classical pieces, as well as some of his own beautiful compositions. Please consider hiring Ryan Walsh for your future events .we are so glad we did! Carrie M.
I'm approachable, personable and patient. Whereas other teachers take textbook approaches, and categorize the people they're teaching as purely 'students', I like to learn about the people I teach, ask questions, find out what they're into. This 2 way approach to teaching makes the lessons more enjoyable, and opens the doors of communication, making it a safe place to be.
For the past 20 years, I have been developing my craft as a musician. I have been formally trained in voice, piano, drums, and guitar. During college, many people approached me and asked if I would teach their daughter or son guitar. I naturally became a guitar teacher. Many of my guitar students have gone on to create their own original songs. With my experience of writing over 100 songs for many different genres, I am able to draw out the songwriting abilities of my students. Outside of teaching, I have been the music director of a church, written music for film producers, and performed all around North America. I look forward to helping you or your child learn guitar.
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.
At 14 years of age, I picked up my first guitar; having no idea what to try first, I took to the Internet to find the right path. I quickly learned that while the Internet can be a very useful tool to learn a large abundance of things, there is nothing like having someone sit in front of you and show you the ropes. At 24 years of age now, I commit most of my time to my job as a race timing technician, but on the side, I love getting the chance to open the instrumental eyes of a new musician. I've played in several bands, taken several music courses in college, and still take pride in all of my instruments. My lessons generally start off with an acoustic guitar; if you do not have one, I can provide one for rent. I go into types of guitars (12 strings, bass, electric, etc.), and I provide various scales and chord diagrams to work on, on your own.
I am an extremely patient player who loves to share the great gift of music to all those who wish to learn.
I have been playing guitar all my life. I love music and working with customers. I play many styles, including electric/acoustic/finger style/classical.
I can teach skills for guitar and bass that will allow one to play music, bridging many genres. I can help people learn songs but specialize in teaching improvisational/computational skills.
Lessons on upright bass or bass guitar. All ages, all styles. Beginners welcome. I'm good with kids, and have forty years of experience. Rock, jazz, blues, folk, bluegrass, country, swing. Flexible hours, reasonable rates.
I am a professional guitarist, songwriter and commercial music artist, residing in Portland Oregon. I have had a bachelor's degree in music from U of O, and I've been playing guitar and writing songs for over 15 years. I've performed on stages in front of thousands across the US and Canada, and I know what it's like to live on the road. I've worked with several distinguished producers and performed with platinum selling artists. I've recorded two studio albums with my band and have composed and recorded commercial music pieces for Fortune 500 companies. I love to teach people the art of creativity.
