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.

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.

I am nearing retirement and have never played an instrument. Art has been able to teach me some basic cords and in a few weeks I have been able to play a few songs. He has been a good match for starting guitar.

Larry is a great teacher. He teaches the importance of scales using a keyboard as a means to help my daughter learn the guitar better. She is currently practicing in our keyboard downstairs.

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!

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!

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.

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.

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.
