I knew nothing about music except that I loved listening to it since I can remember, Upon my retirement from education and at the encouragement of my 7 year old grandson who was taking guitar lessons, I also began guitar lessons with Eric. In the few months that I have been his student, Eric has demonstrated his superior knowledge of music, outstanding ability to teach using a variety of methods as well as much patience. I highly recommend Eric as a teacher to anyone wanting to learn about music and how to play guitar.
These are guitar lessons and I've only had my first one. As first lessons go, this went well, though I have no other experiences to compare it with. This is a premature question and in no way reflects any overall opinion of Twin Rivers music.
Antonio taught me formal electric bass lessons from 2003 - 2006 at Studio 63 in East Brunswick, New Jersey. He provided me with an incredible musical foundation to build upon my own strengths as a musician. Antonio has an excellent ability to sense a student's needs and effortlessly blend them into the lesson at hand; whether it be theory, rudiments, or a song of the student's choosing. To this day I still apply many of the fundamentals that I learned under his instruction. He is a teacher who cares for his students and is truly passionate about music, and it reflects in his lessons.
I describe myself as an "intermediate beginner" on the guitar -- that is, I know a handful of chords, have a decent sense of rhythm and can "fake it" pretty well. I went to Adam to help me learn how to play properly and get to the next level. He met my expectations and then some... Adam was quick to size up my capabilities and he worked with me, at my pace and with my input, to help me improve, demonstrating techniques and offering advice that opened up many new possibilities for me. He also provided access to some great training materials and websites that have been invaluable as I work to be a better musician. I especially appreciate his willingness to help me sharpen up and make more compelling several tunes I've written, adding mini-riffs and flourishes that enhance the songs in a big way. Adam is talented, knowledgeable and easy to work with, and I recommend him highly.
Taylor makes taking guitar lessons fun rather than feel like work. I get to choose what I want to learn at my own pace
David Joel is the guitar teacher that you have been looking for! Musical experience, wisdom, and expertise are just a few of the things you should expect when you start lessons here. My experience with other guitar teachers was always that they were more interested in making rocking guitarists who could play some nice licks but never really knew why what they were playing sounded good or how it fit into the larger musical spectrum. David will not only make you improve as a guitarist, but he will help you see the bigger picture, making sure you have a solid foundation of musical knowledge and expertise before learning more advanced techniques and theory. The result is a guitarist who can play those amazing licks and riffs incredibly proficiently, but also understands why what they are playing sounds great! It truly is the best way to learn to play, and guitarists from beginners to experts can learn a lot from David's teachings.
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!
My son got a guitar and lessons for his 7th birthday and has been working with Brook ever since. He's almost 12 now and it's been truly amazing to see how far he's come. Brook makes learning the music fun and works on songs he likes, so he actually wants to practice! Brook is very patient and encouraging. My son looks up to him and is eager to learn. As a parent, working with Brook has been great. He's flexible if we need to change a lesson due to a schedule conflict and gives a monthly reminder about payment, which i really appreciate. When we were planning to purchase an electric guitar for our son, we looked to Brook and his expertise for guidance. Brook is honest and just a phenomenal teacher. Every night is like being at a rock concert in our house and we love every second of it. Thank you Brook!
Tom gives my son guitar lessons. EXCELLENT!
I am going on my second month of guitar lessons as a beginner. In this short period of time I have learned so much from Lou about playing guitar. When I started I did not even know how to read the notes. Now I do, Lou is always courteous, fun, and very informative. He goes above and beyond as an instructor. He is patient and teaches at the appropriate level without rushing. He always offers to answer questions if needed during the week in between the lessons. He is very talented and it is so apparent that he loves what he does. Lou is an outstanding instructor and I would proudly recommend him to others looking to learn to play the guitar.
While I live in the Washington, D.C. area and normally take weekly guitar lessons there, when I'm in the Bucks County area I always try to schedule a guitar lesson with Lee. He is an accomplished musician and a terrific teacher. He is focused on the music and attentive to subtle details. He often offers practical, and sometimes unique, ideas for working on skills and techniques that need improvement. I always feel that my lessons with Lee are very productive!!!
Our 7 year old daughter has loved her acoustic guitar lessons with Bob at Robert Putt Studio! We appreciated his patient guidance from first introduction. She loved the lesson time, especially when he demonstrated some of the other guitars and equipment; which he always graciously accommodated whenever she asked. He always took the time to answer her questions thoroughly, he was positive and sincere in his encouragement and critiques, and he always made time for her to share her own creativity during their lessons. I can't say enough good things about his studio, his kind instruction, and his professional talent.
Daniel is a patient fun teacher! My daughter is 7 and asks a lot of questions, Daniel always make time to answer them and gives her encouragement and praise. He is very knowledgable and has given us great advice for the best guitar to purchase. He breaks down each of the lessons in to small chunks which makes it easy for her to remember and practise!
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 have always wanted to learn to play the guitar and finally had the time to do. Zachary was super patient with a beginner such as myself and truly made my lessons fun!
I took lessons with Keith for 9 months, and in that time he gave me the foundation I needed to build on the basic skills to play guitar. Keith is very friendly and approachable. He does not force a particular style of playing; rather, he listens to your interests and works with whatever direction you choose. He is a very versatile player with a wealth of knowledge and a solid musical background. I highly recommend him for any level of playing. I came to him as a beginner, and I enjoyed my time with him very much. If you want a teacher who is patient, easy-going, and professional, go with Keith!
I have been working with Gordon for almost 7 years now. He has taken my guitar playing to new heights. As a guitarist, I am now able to improvise proficiently based on Gordon's ability to efficiently teach improvisation. Recently Gordon taught me the basic elements of Jazz, a genre of music that I was not comfortable playing. However I was motivated to audition for my high school's Jazz Band, and with Gordon's help, I got the spot of guitarist for my junior and senior years of high school. When Gordon voiced that I was at the level where I could begin to teach beginner guitar lessons, I was a bit reluctant and uncomfortable. However Gordon kept pushing me to pursue teaching, because he believes in my ability to show the guitar to others the way he showed it to me. As of now I have four initial students that are starting up lessons this summer. I would never be in the position to teach without Gordon's positive encouragement and help. When I leave for college not only will I be leaving the lessons of a wonderful guitar teacher. I will be leaving the weekly visits of a lifelong friend. Thanks to Gordon Johnson, guitar will serve as an interest for the rest of my life.
I give kids the beginner tools to get them on their way to playing the guitar and singing. I enjoy working with children from all ages, and I believe that making it fun is the first step to engaging young students in positive practice habits.
I teach the basics of guitar, notes, chords, tuning and anything you want to learn. I want you to learn how to play in the style you enjoy the most. Guitar should be fun, and I try very hard to teach in a way that is easy, and that most people can learn from a no-pressure environment. If you've ever wanted to learn, I will show the road to get you there and make it an easy, no-pressure and hopefully fun experience.
We teach beginner piano or guitar lessons. There is no experience needed but must have instruments. I am fun to be with and have love to music!
I am a guitar teacher based out of West Chester, PA. I have 7 years of experience both playing the guitar and successfully teaching friends and family members to play the guitar properly. I love music, and I am sincerely looking forward to working with future students and guiding them in the right direction to be great guitar players!
