Joe Rossi met with me, my daughter Eva, and Eva's mother, Dana at his studio. We were immediately struck by his humility, good character, and genuine devotion to providing the best possible teaching/communication to his students. He is very kind, very talented, philosophical, creative, and a rare find in these times. I will heartily recommend Joe to friends & family in the future. I appreciate Thumbtack's service, for your vehicle allowed me to meet the perfect teacher for me and Eva. In fact, Joe was so impressed with my daughter's singing/piano skills at our initial meeting, he apparently advised a woman who controls a particular scholarship fund to meet Eva during Eva's first lesson. Eva won the scholarship! By the way, I experienced difficulty on your web-page when I attempted to complete project 2 (Eva's lessons). Dana Hayden, Eva's mom, ended up contacting you instead. I am taking flamenco/classical guitar lessons from Joe.

I'm happy I decided to start taking guitar lessons. The teacher is friendly, very knowledgeable, and patient. I feel like I've learned a lot and I look forward to learning more. Lessons are reasonably priced and I feel like I'm getting my money's worth.

I have been taking adult acoustic guitar lessons, at Sunburst School of music, for about 5 years. You can feel the vibes of this music school, as soon as you walk through the door! Lots of energy, fun, learning and, of course, all kinds of music! My instructors have been so enthusiastic, knowledgeable, encouraging, and patient. With their help and lots of practice, I have become a guitar player! I would highly recommend Sunburst School of Music, to anyone of any age, who is thinking of beginning their own adventure into learning a musical instrument!

I spent one summer taking weekly guitar lessons from Scott before moving out of town. During that summer with the help of Professor Elliott, my playing improved at a rate I would never have expected. Over a year later I am still working on exercises and concepts that he introduced to me and I continue to improve. I highly suggest taking guitar lessons from Scott Elliott or hiring him to perform at an event. He is incredibly talented with an ax in his hand, intelligent, and an all around good guy!

We love Jean and New Song. My daughter is 8 and just starting singing lessons and Jean has been wonderful. I can't say enough good things about her and about the school. It's fun and casual but my daughter is learning a lot. Perfect!

I have been taking guitar lessons at N'Stuff Music for 10 years. All three of my guitar teachers have been excellent and have guided my progress in the genres of rock and classical guitar. I also took voice lessons here for about a year. The learning experience and support of the knowledgeable store staff have been outstanding. If I had to start over again, this is where I would be.

I honestly couldn't be happier. The individual instruction is so amazing. There are group sessions once a month that are beneficial for performers. My son is so motivated now! The teacher lets me sit in on the lessons and I'm so impressed!

I can teach anybody to play the guitar young or old. It's never too late to learn. I've been playing guitar for over 50 years now and it's still as exciting and fun as the first time that I picked up a guitar.

About

We at Bentley & Romito Music believe that music should be fun and educational. Students learn how to read music and are taught music theory. They can also learn their favorite songs as well as how to "jam." Students are taught how to improvise and are encouraged to be creative. Each student also has a chance to play at a number of recitals over the course of the year.

About

I've been playing the guitar for 18 years -- seven years spent professionally. My approach is positive and patient. I want to help you achieve your dream of playing guitar!

About

I have been playing guitar and studying music theory for nine years. I am looking to help spread the joy of music by teaching beginners who wish to learn. I will teach any age. All I ask is that my students take this seriously and want to learn. My wife is my personal assistant, and all appointments and lessons will be made through her.

About

I do beginner to advanced guitar lessons in various styles, incorporating many different techniques. I do, for example, alternate picking, legato, sweep picking, tapping, bending, hammer-ons, pull-offs, etc.

About

My students will recieve personalized lesson plans based on the individual to help them achieve their goals as a guitarist. Have a strong interest in songwriting and theory? Or perhaps learning a certain style of music? It's my job to help you develop those goals in a real, tangible way.

About

I am a professional musician who began teaching privately at the age of 18, and have been taking Guitar Students of all ages my whole Adult Life. I have taught classes at Volkwein's Music, Westland Academy for the Arts, and now at Seton Hill Community Arts Program.

About

My name is Devon. I'm 25 years old, and I have 20 years of experience in playing music and seven years of teaching music. I am currently the pianist, songwriter, and lead singer of a rock band. I'm classically trained and have experience in playing and teaching, music theory, music history, and singing. I play classical, jazz, blues, rock, rock 'n' roll, and popular music.

About

Do you want to play guitar? I mean, do you really want to develop the fine art of playing guitar? Do you want to be able to learn how to build nice chord progressions, how to play a solo melody, and do solo improvisation, in different styles of music and on all different types of guitars? Have you always wanted to learn that song from a CD, but can't get the right notes and chords? Do you need to train your ear? Do you need a good method to be able to learn to play blues, classical, folk or rock as quickly as possible? Call me. I have more than 25 years of experience teaching music. I speak English and Spanish, and can teach in either language. I have my own music studio in Squirrel Hill, specially built for enjoying music. I have very affordable rates and a flexible schedule. I teach children and adults of any age. No previous experience is necessary. References are available upon request. I teach advance guitar lessons for beginners.

About

I've taken years of music lessons and I'm willing to pass that knowledge on. I can teach a variety of percussion and stringed instruments.

About

My lessons aren't strict or a "burden" as some may say. They would be fun and experimental, for your own benefit. Students can walk out strumming away on their first day with a smile on their face, and hardly any money out of pocket.
