Monte is an excellent music teacher. Over the past five years he has taught me both guitar and piano. His method is student based. Monte has a thorough knowledge of both instruments. He is both patient and encouraging with his students. He works with the student on all aspects of the instrument and music theory helping them achieve their goal. I highly recommend Monte as a guitar and piano teacher.Dec 9, 2014
Monte has been my son's guitar teacher for six years. He taught him to play his first chord and is now working on intricate pieces. My son loves working with Monte. Number one reason is that Monte allows his students to play the kind of music that most interests them. Monte has also given him opportunities to play with his peers and in a couple live performances. My son really looks forward to every lesson and with Monte's guidance has become an awesome guitar player!Dec 20, 2014
I've been taking lessons with Monte for over a year, and I would highly recommend him to anyone; a beginner or someone already skilled who is just looking to jam. Monte is a patient instructor and will work with you to learn just about any song or style of music you want. He can hear something one time and play it perfectly. It's a pretty amazing skill when you see it in action. Give him a try and I promise you'll be hooked!Feb 18, 2015
Monte was excellent! My daughter loved her lessons even though she was not the most dedicated student. The price was extremely fair and he went above and beyond what I expected.Feb 10, 2020Verified

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Lessons are $99 for a 5-week intro course including 5 half-hour lessons once a week for 5 weeks and the complete G4 Guitar Method, downloads, access to the G4 international online network and more.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I meet with new students one on one and determine what musical experience they have. Most have no experience so I start with the most basic G4 Guitar Method. The skills necessary to play guitar are thoroughly covered like picking, chords, arpegios, scales, rhythm, reading and theory. G4 is great for advanced students too. I use benchmarks to progress through the G4 Guitar Method and have experienced students join a small group of other students around the same age, level and musical interests. My most advanced students play real concerts with me in a band.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?Certified G4 guitar teacher and franchisee.
