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.

Alex is a great music teacher. My son takes string bass lessons from him. He is able to work basic mechanics and theory into his instruction and still have the lesson be enjoyable. Alex is a calm and patient teacher. It's also inspirational to be able to go see him perform live.

Mark read my post carefully, responded in detail with a lesson plan approach, and had already researched some of my specific goals before the first lesson. His practice space was convenient and comfortable, and he is a kind, helpful teacher.

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.

I have been taking guitar lessons with Sky Audsley for over a year and can't believe how much I have learned! I had been chording only for about 40 years to accompany my singing and never progressed further until Sky developed a plan for me to expand just where I need to go.This man really understands the instrument and really understands where I want to go with it. I am well on my way to reading music and transposing to meet my needs. Not bad for an "Old Dog"!

I took bass lessons from Don for a couple of years and it really expanded my abilities and confidence. I chose him as a teacher when I heard him play at a jam session and I said that's what I want to sound like! He is a professional, focused and organized teacher. I could not read a chart at all when I started with him and now I can, and I've got great notes and records from all the lessons I can review anytime. Don is the best.

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!

I take bass lessons from Rory and he has great method of teaching with kids young and old. He dose not only teach me bass, but also a wide range of music theory and history. He is VERY knowledgeable in history, theory, and the science of music. He is a fun teacher and I always look forward to each lesson, knowing that one lesson wont be the same as another.

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 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.

About

I offer bass guitar and guitar lessons. I teach bass guitar lessons and beginning guitar. I try to teach in a very basic way to get students playing as soon as possible, or if I'm teaching a more advanced student on how to achieve their next level of playing. I'm nice and simple.
