What sets Rick Lilley apart from other guitar teachers? This guy can play and teach anything! Before I found Rick, I interviewed a couple other teachers and was very discouraged...I thought the teacher I always dreamed of did not exist. They all told me what they would teach me and how (buy this book, we'll go through each lesson one by one). I envisioned myself like several friends who took guitar lessons: giving up after 6 months of struggling with a few chords and never having learned a single song. Rick simply said “what do you want to play?” I want to play Rolling Stones, Darius Rucker, Beatles...? “Sure.” Lesson one: 8 chords that every other chord is based on, and a few bars of “Knockin' on Heaven's Door”. Sounds intimidating but he is patient, and willing to go over it as much as needed. I greatly look forward to my lesson every week after a year and a half. It usually starts with me picking a song I really want to play or him suggesting one based on specific skills I need to work on. If it is a song he has never heard he will work it out on the spot and teach it. I'm not talking about telling me a couple chords or handing me “the tab” (I'm not even sure if that's the correct term). Rick shows me the chords, (and if there are several to chose from up the neck), rhythm, and the fun bits (slides, slurs, arpeggio, solos). At the end of the lesson he will write a basic chart of the song, and I sometimes take a video of him playing it. Rick is available to help if I need during the week and will answer little questions by phone or text (I have literally sent him a picture of my left hand on guitar and asked if it looked like an F minor.) He also went shopping with me when I went to buy my first guitar, and found me a stellar deal, and an instrument I love. He is the guy to ask about any equipment, and even does adjustments and talked me through the first time changing the strings. Now I enjoy playing Eli Young Band or Beatles songs and singing along with my 6 year old, something I could only dream of a couple years ago. Taking lessons with Rick is the best thing I have ever done for myself and my whole family feels lucky we know him! Cannot say enough good things about taking lessons with Rick.

We're very excited to begin lessons with Landon. Our son is still rather young (3 y.o.), but Landon's creative approach, calm demeanor and clear love for music has been reassuring. I truly appreciate the balance he keeps of making the lesson informative as well as fun!

If you want a traditional teacher who will suck life out of art for you, move along. Annieville Blues inspires her students to learn everything they can because her love of music and learning is contagious. My daughter started music lessons with Annieville as a young girl, and now, though still a teenager, she’s a performing musician. I’m sorry we no longer live in the same state because Annieville is simply the best.

I took private electronic music lessons with Katie Ann, and she was really helpful in terms of helping me get my ideas in order, which allowed me to go deeper into each project. She is an incredibly welcoming and makes it easy for people with little experience in the field - such as me at the time - to feel comfortable exploring and experimenting in a field that can be quite intimidating. Katie is also one of the most creative and talented people I know and would highly recommend her as a teacher any day!

Hello. My name is Sammy, and I'm a guitarist and glass artist in Glendale, Oregon. I have been playing guitar, both acoustic and electric, for about 7 years. I am self-taught, and I hope to teach a basic understanding of chords, scales, and how they all fit together. I will teach you to read guitar tablature and even how to play some of your favorite songs. The first lesson we will talk about is where you want to take this and to see if you want me to teach you what you'd like. I will show you some of the techniques that I hope to teach.

My lesson studio includes a brand new Kawaii baby grand piano, as well as a state-of-the-art Yamaha digital piano. Students have opportunities to perform in a casual and supportive setting. My unique approach keeps students motivated to achieve their dreams, while also creating a musical experience that is just plain fun. References are available upon request.

It was especially great because he really didn't want to come, and he surprised himself with how much he enjoyed you." -- Mindy "Kim is a superior piano teacher. She blends all the structured techniques of chords, fingering, and reading sheet music with playing by ear, keeping rhythm and having a blast. Kim is a great communicator, full of life and just gorgeous inside and out." -- Tina
