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 took lessons with Kyle for about a year. My goal was develop a solid foundation so that I could learn on my own without picking up any bad habits. Matt definitely helped me reach that goal and then some. I feel pretty confident that I can learn new, challenging songs on my own now. If guitar lessons weren't so expensive, I would definitely have kept going. Kyle is an awesome teacher!

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.

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. :)

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!

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.

    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.

    About

    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.

    About

    Guitars and bass are my specialty. I have been playing for 6 years and have held lessons for 2 years. My friends will tell you I am the best person to go to when it comes to making up a bass riff on the spot or creating a kick butt solo. I'm not shy, nor should you be. Playing guitar is what I'm willing to teach you, and it's pretty easy to learn. Forget guitar tabs! I can teach you how to read sheet music like it was a children's novel. My name is Emily. I'm 17 and I am a senior in high school. I know what it's like to be the new kid just learning. Hey, if you mess up, that only makes you smarter. I've messed up more times than I can remember, but I'm now the bass guitarist for my pep band, marching band, and Kill The Messenger (my band). I guess you can say I've mastered the bass and guitar extremely fast, and I can help you get started and maybe make you the next Jimi Hendricks. I can play at his level and beyond. I'm free on the weekends and anywhere in between, I would just need a heads up. I don't think it's right to have an hourly rate. If you feel like I deserve more than $20 a session, feel free to do whatever you feel is right.

    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.

    About

    I am a Portland based guitar instructor. My teaching career began in NY, where I am originally from. I have had students from ages 6-60. I specialize in classical guitar, but I have plenty of experience in teaching and performing various styles, including rock, jazz, and folk. I believe that a good technique is essential, and an understanding of music theory is essential. However, these things are only one side of the coin. In addition to teaching you what to practice, I will teach you how to practice and how it ties in to what you love.

    About

    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.
