John has been a perfect teacher for me because of his profound understanding of music theory and composition. John has a degree in music from Berklee and those concepts are brought to life in our lessons. My musical understanding and ability has skyrocketed since our lessons began. Prior to us starting, jamming with other musicians was incredibly intimidating. Now I have standing weekly jam sessions with multiple groups and am able to old my own and improvise well at each. I have become the teacher for many of my friends who I previously thought were years ahead of me in musical talent. If you have the hunger to learn guitar, John is your guy.

Buck has been giving lessons to my sons for years and we are very happy with him as a teacher. He is extremely knowledgeable in both bass and guitar. His knowledge of musical theory as well as a broad spectrum of types of music is also very impressive. He's always able to find something that my sons are interested in learning, and he is very patient with both young students as well as new students. I would highly recommend him to anyone with no reservations whatsoever.

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!

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.

I appreciate that Dan has the flexibility and commitment to take me on as a student. It's easier for me to commit when he can do home-visits for lessons. I'm a beginner and he provides an appropriate level of guidance to push me to learn and prompt me to think "who I want to be" when playing guitar (style, future goals, etc). Seeing progress motivates me to keep practicing and trusting the process!

Having taken guitar lessons under Sharon Hood for 6 years I can proudly assert she is one of the most knowledgeable, capable, and friendly music teachers I've had the pleasure of learning from. Throughout my years with Sharon I went from 0 experience with guitar to playing paid performances in the community as well as substitute teaching for her in a jam. She has taught myself, my younger brother (piano), as well as my younger cousins and friend, and she seriously works wonders, especially with children! If you're looking for someone who not only knows their stuff, but is willing to take the time to get to know you and make sure you are learning to the best of your ability, look no further than Sharon Hood Music Studio.

Whatever your level of experience, if you really want to learn how to play guitar or bass, The Guitar And Bass Academy Of Jackson is the only choice. Gifted player / Veteran instructor (and all-around cool guy) Aaron Leone is not only readily equipped with a wealth of skill / technical knowledge to impart (to a willing bass novice like me), he also has the rare and special intuitive talent of meeting you on your level , whatever be that level, and communicating/simplifying challenging musical concepts / techniques in ways that assure you'll soon find yourself amazed at the concrete, measurable development of your mental/manual coordination, knowledge of the instrument, retention and overall skill. I'd taken bass lessons with a few different teachers in the area; all but one of them were technically good players; all of them fell abysmally short in ability to communicate the material in ways that could be readily absorbed. That ended the day I sat down and played a few strings with Aaron Leone... I can't say enough good things about this guy Aaron and what he's doing at the Jackson Guitar / Bass Academy, Doesn't matter how young (or old) you are, if you really want to learn to play , this is it!! Five stars ***** ~ Anthony, Jackson NJ

Verified review

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.

    Been trying to teach myself but struggling. I love the bass as I am a huge fan of The Stranglers, The Smiths, The Clash, Cream etc. Most of the music I listen to has a great bass sound and is British. I am a Brit myself.
