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.

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.

Really happy with my experience with Richards Guitar Studio. Nate was very accommodating, answering my questions and setting me up with right instructor. My instructor Eric is very easy to work with. Their Guitar Mastery program is a great way to learn and something that I don't think you can find anywhere else.

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.

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!

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!

Verified review

Buck is a talented and patient guitar instructor. He has provided weekly lessons at a reasonable rate to me for 4 years. My daughter wanted to learn to play so we both now take lessons from him. He is accommodating with changing scheduling and now comes to our location for lessons. He is well versed in many styles, and knows his music and instruments well. He even helps determine guitar parts for my daughter from animation and other non-traditional sources, then teaches her to play them. Highly recommend you take lessons from Buck. Plus he'a a really nice guy too!

My 10 year old daughter has been taking singing lessons from Paul for the past 2 years, (recently added guitar lessons) -- I cannot even put into words how awesome he is as an teacher. Just the right amount of nurturing, positive encouragement and fun. And he comes with years and years of "in the business" experience, so his advice really carries weight. It's a bit of a drive from where we are to get to him, but we cannot even imagine going to anyone else. Daughter literally looks forward to each lesson (this is the same person that groans every morning about school, just to give some context). Worth the drive. Worth the cost.

Danton has been an incredible gift to our family. We have gone through more piano teachers than I can count. My 14yo daughter actually quit piano and only decided to start again when she met Danton. My 8yo cried every time his other piano teachers show up, but when I tell him Danton is coming, he says, "Oh good!" (I think this is related to Danton using a blindfold during lessons. My 14yo son is taking bass lessons with Danton, and I can't express the joy I feel watching the two of them jam. Danton is cool. He is punctual. He is friendly. And he is also a great teacher. I am soooooo grateful we found him!

Max is a great teacher. He’s super patient and you can tell that he genuinely loves what he does. I didn’t have any experience with the guitar before taking lessons with him and he does a really good job at breaking ideas down and explaining them so that they make sense. He also personalizes lessons specifically to my music taste which is really cool—he’s learned every song I’ve asked him to, and he’s taught them all to me. Sick teacher A+!!

Rob has been giving my grandson lessons in piano since the spring of 2017. My grandson had been to a few different teachers that did not have the patience for younger children. Rob developed great lesson plans that were fun while my grandson learned. Rob's experience and positive way of teaching allows us the reassurance to recommend him to so many others. We're so lucky we found him ! Not many music teachers fulfill so many qualities we were looking for. (Affordable, flexible schedule, experience with young children and always positive and encouraging) A +++ Carol O from Wilmington, De

It doesn't get any better than Matt Robinson. He is extremely patient and encouraging. He knows just how far to push to keep you excited about playing. His knowledge of the guitar and music is inspiring. If you've ever toyed with the idea of learning to play the guitar, do it. Call Matt and you'll be glad you did. You will be playing your favorite songs in no time at all. Nice guy.
