John is extremely knowledgable about music theory. From my first lesson I walked away better off. And I think I will continue to grow in my guitar skills and music knowledge.

I`ve been taking guitar lessons from Steve for seven weeks now and I find him to be a GREAT teacher and very knowledgeable on everything when it comes to anything related to music. If you want to know anything about a particular instrument or Amp or anything related to music Steve can guide you. I`m an older student and mentally handicapped sometimes ;) and he`s very patient with me. I give him 5 stars and would recommend to him to anyone.

Nate and his fellow instructors are awesome. I have been a student for over 3 years and continue to learn and grow with every lesson. As an adult student with a full-time job, Nate ability to be flexible in his teaching method has kept me interested in learning and playing. Highly recommend this studio for all ages and abilities.

While we have only been attending for about two months, my son has loved his piano lessons. He is eager to go each week and practices daily!! Rosalind has been flexible with our changing summer schedule. My son has learned so much in such a short time.

David Joel has helped me immensely improve in my ability to play the guitar. Before starting lessons with him I had over 6 years experience playing the guitar, including 2 years of beginner lessons. During that time I relied heavily on guitar tabs and what I could find on the internet. I came to David with decent technique but something was definitely lacking in my playing. David helped me figure out what I was missing and helped me get to a level of playing I never thought I could reach. It wasn't easy as he had me going back to the basics. I learned how to read sheet music, how to keep a better tempo, and the music theory behind it all. It has been about 2 years now with David and I am continually learning and improving. Overall my experience with David has been thoroughly enjoyable and I would recommend his services to anyone, whether they are new to the guitar or have been playing for years.

Carol has been wonderful as a music teacher. I was very nervous to start piano as an adult learner since it had been many years that I played. Carol is understanding, calm and motivating. She also challenges me with varied music and methods of learning. Although I am taking piano lessons, I am also learning music theory and the ability to accompany other instruments. I would highly recommend Carol as a music teacher.

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!

I retired a few years ago and was looking for a new hobby and decided on learning to play the guitar. Daniel responded quickly to my request for information and I decided to take my first lesson with him. My first lesson was very informative and very comfortable as Daniel is very patient with new students. Daniel is a very talented musician and has the ability to work with those who have never picked or plucked a string before - like me. He makes playing the guitar fun and his teaching method is easy to understand especially when you're the proverbial "old dog" trying to learn a new trick. I highly recommend Daniel to anyone who is considering playing the guitar no matter if it's a child, teen, adult or senior.

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!

My teenage son has been enjoying Danton's classical guitar teaching for the past two years. In this time, he has greatly matured in his playing skills and understanding of music theory. Danton challenges his students in creative and fun ways, making lessons a pleasure. He includes the student in selecting music, being sure to advance the student's skill level without overwhelm the student. He is professional, engaging, and friendly. Additionally, his ability to come to my home for lessons saves me time each week. Certainly, he is a very talented musician whom I eagerly recommend for all styles of piano or guitar instruction.

What a wonderful experience! I was unsure about who to go to when I decided I wanted to get back into music. I made the best decision when I choose Brenda as a teacher. She is knowledgable, articulate and has a friendly and positive teaching style. She helped me push through when I was met with challenges and I can confidently say my abilities grew as I worked with her. If you are thinking about taking guitar lessons, definitely do it with Brenda! You won't be sorry!

I was been interested in learning to play the bass for a number of years and figured I could benefit from some personal instruction. I found Lou to be professional, relaxed, and easy-going in the lessons he provided. The lessons had a good mix of basics in how to play the instrument as well as incorporating music theory seamlessly while learning.

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 had just started guitar and was clueless about how to begin learning as an adult. Max was a great teacher, offering advice on everything from how to tune the guitar to playing chord progressions. Before the lessons, Max asked me to send him some songs I wanted to learn; Max learned them and used them as a framework for the lessons, making the instruction practical and fun. Moreover, whenever a music theory concept came up, he explained it in an intuitive way, which I really appreciated. The environment was constructive and relaxed, and I couldn't have asked for a better introduction to guitar.

As a young guitarist, Ben was extremely patient with me in picking up new material. He took his time in ensuring my understanding of whatever we worked on. Ben allowed his lessons to be fun rather than all work, which was helpful for me as I was a younger student of his. With that being said he was excellent at pushing and encouraging me to get the most out of the experience. Ben was far and away the best instructor I ever worked with.
