Antonio taught me formal electric bass lessons from 2003 - 2006 at Studio 63 in East Brunswick, New Jersey. He provided me with an incredible musical foundation to build upon my own strengths as a musician. Antonio has an excellent ability to sense a student's needs and effortlessly blend them into the lesson at hand; whether it be theory, rudiments, or a song of the student's choosing. To this day I still apply many of the fundamentals that I learned under his instruction. He is a teacher who cares for his students and is truly passionate about music, and it reflects in his lessons.
I describe myself as an "intermediate beginner" on the guitar -- that is, I know a handful of chords, have a decent sense of rhythm and can "fake it" pretty well. I went to Adam to help me learn how to play properly and get to the next level. He met my expectations and then some... Adam was quick to size up my capabilities and he worked with me, at my pace and with my input, to help me improve, demonstrating techniques and offering advice that opened up many new possibilities for me. He also provided access to some great training materials and websites that have been invaluable as I work to be a better musician. I especially appreciate his willingness to help me sharpen up and make more compelling several tunes I've written, adding mini-riffs and flourishes that enhance the songs in a big way. Adam is talented, knowledgeable and easy to work with, and I recommend him highly.
David Joel is the guitar teacher that you have been looking for! Musical experience, wisdom, and expertise are just a few of the things you should expect when you start lessons here. My experience with other guitar teachers was always that they were more interested in making rocking guitarists who could play some nice licks but never really knew why what they were playing sounded good or how it fit into the larger musical spectrum. David will not only make you improve as a guitarist, but he will help you see the bigger picture, making sure you have a solid foundation of musical knowledge and expertise before learning more advanced techniques and theory. The result is a guitarist who can play those amazing licks and riffs incredibly proficiently, but also understands why what they are playing sounds great! It truly is the best way to learn to play, and guitarists from beginners to experts can learn a lot from David's teachings.
Wow…so Chris is an amazing professional guitar teacher, as well as a highly talented singer/musician; and having looked for about a month for such a teacher I was worried I wouldn’t find anyone with those qualities so I’m quite relieved I finally did. I am a 43 yr old music geek with a childhood background in piano, and came to him highly motivated with many specific goals and guitar techniques I wanted to learn-despite never having played the guitar before. Now, 6 months later, not only has Chris clearly met me at where my skill level and musical tastes are, he is also really skilled at helping me to stay motivated despite the challenging beginner learning curve of guitar. He is really kind and personable, he gives encouraging verbal feedback, and always makes the lesson enjoyable whether I’m learning theory, techniques, or playing. One special talent he seems to have developed is his way of streamlining/editing common guitar methods to instead more applicable real life playing and convenience. He also knows when to stop you from getting way in over your head with too much theory to not hinder your innate creativity-that to me is so important as I am such an info nerd, but he consistently reminds you of the most important goal – which is to learn how to actually play guitar and hopefully-ultimately to create your own music, and so if that is your goal then he can totally help you get there. Thumbs up.
My son got a guitar and lessons for his 7th birthday and has been working with Brook ever since. He's almost 12 now and it's been truly amazing to see how far he's come. Brook makes learning the music fun and works on songs he likes, so he actually wants to practice! Brook is very patient and encouraging. My son looks up to him and is eager to learn. As a parent, working with Brook has been great. He's flexible if we need to change a lesson due to a schedule conflict and gives a monthly reminder about payment, which i really appreciate. When we were planning to purchase an electric guitar for our son, we looked to Brook and his expertise for guidance. Brook is honest and just a phenomenal teacher. Every night is like being at a rock concert in our house and we love every second of it. Thank you Brook!
Daniel is a patient fun teacher! My daughter is 7 and asks a lot of questions, Daniel always make time to answer them and gives her encouragement and praise. He is very knowledgable and has given us great advice for the best guitar to purchase. He breaks down each of the lessons in to small chunks which makes it easy for her to remember and practise!
Tom gives my son guitar lessons. EXCELLENT!
I am going on my second month of guitar lessons as a beginner. In this short period of time I have learned so much from Lou about playing guitar. When I started I did not even know how to read the notes. Now I do, Lou is always courteous, fun, and very informative. He goes above and beyond as an instructor. He is patient and teaches at the appropriate level without rushing. He always offers to answer questions if needed during the week in between the lessons. He is very talented and it is so apparent that he loves what he does. Lou is an outstanding instructor and I would proudly recommend him to others looking to learn to play the guitar.
I am a busy business owner with limited time to explore my creative side. Knowing this, I wanted to take up acoustic guitar lessons, but needed to connect with someone with the right balance of push and patience. I was fortunate to find Paul. He is very passionate about music, and that comes through in our lessons. I'm learning, having fun, and through Paul have found a new outlet for my creative side. Thank you Paul!
While I live in the Washington, D.C. area and normally take weekly guitar lessons there, when I'm in the Bucks County area I always try to schedule a guitar lesson with Lee. He is an accomplished musician and a terrific teacher. He is focused on the music and attentive to subtle details. He often offers practical, and sometimes unique, ideas for working on skills and techniques that need improvement. I always feel that my lessons with Lee are very productive!!!
This lesson was awesome! The instructor Mike was very friendly & professional. He taught at a comfortable pace. He watched as I played & gave feedback. He makes learning the guitar fun. I left knowing how to play a VERY popular song☺ I can't wait to do some of my homework & get to the next lesson. I highly recommend Mike for any beginners like myself!
After a single lesson, Joe seems like a great teacher and someone I'll enjoy working with on my guitar learning journey.
I have always wanted to learn to play the guitar and finally had the time to do. Zachary was super patient with a beginner such as myself and truly made my lessons fun!
I have been taking piano lessons from Mrs. Sherry for about 5 years now, and I took about a year of the music theory labs and voice lessons. I couldn't ask for a better teacher. She is so hardworking, flexible with lessons, organized, and not to mention an excellent person and great friend to me. She teaches beginner students as well as advanced students such as myself. I have just started to teach a beginner student of hers and it has been very good experience. There is also great opportunties for students to have good experiences with the studio because Mrs. Sherry has phenomenal recitals that any of her students are encouraged to perform at. I very highly recommend having your child take lessons from her.
As a beginner-level guitar player and singer, I couldn't speak more highly of Taylor as a teacher. I've been doing lessons with him for almost 2 years now and have improved from complete beginner to recording songs! With his help, I've not only learned how to play songs on a guitar, but he has also taught me how to sing with the correct breathing and increased my range. One of the biggest benefits is that he has a home recording studio - not only is it cool to have my own recording, but it helps me learn to be able to listen to myself. Taylor's teaching style is very engaging and enthusiastic, plus he's patient with my musical inexperience. He teaches me songs I want to learn as well as unique guitar and singing skills. I would highly recommend Taylor to any aspiring musician who wants to have fun lessons while also improving drastically.
I feel like I'm picking up how to play the guitar quickly as a beginner
Tom is the best teacher. He encourages me to practice and try new songs out of my comfort zone. I am doing very well under his guidence. I am having a blast!
I give kids the beginner tools to get them on their way to playing the guitar and singing. I enjoy working with children from all ages, and I believe that making it fun is the first step to engaging young students in positive practice habits.
We teach beginner piano or guitar lessons. There is no experience needed but must have instruments. I am fun to be with and have love to music!
I teach the basics of guitar, notes, chords, tuning and anything you want to learn. I want you to learn how to play in the style you enjoy the most. Guitar should be fun, and I try very hard to teach in a way that is easy, and that most people can learn from a no-pressure environment. If you've ever wanted to learn, I will show the road to get you there and make it an easy, no-pressure and hopefully fun experience.
I am a guitar teacher based out of West Chester, PA. I have 7 years of experience both playing the guitar and successfully teaching friends and family members to play the guitar properly. I love music, and I am sincerely looking forward to working with future students and guiding them in the right direction to be great guitar players!
