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 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.

While we have only been attending for about two months, my son has loved his piano lessons. He is eager to go each week and practices daily!! Rosalind has been flexible with our changing summer schedule. My son has learned so much in such a short time.

David Joel gives the best guitar lessons in the Philadelphia area, hands down. Being an already experienced player, I had come into his studio expecting to be taught things I already knew. However, David opened the door to a world of music I hadn't known existed and transformed the way I hear and play music. His lessons helped me understand music itself and not just learning specific songs. Studying under David is like studying under a Berklee professor (being a former faculty member himself). The lessons are worth every penny for the amount of knowledge you gain. I would recommend David Joel to everyone who wants to learn guitar!

Taylor makes taking guitar lessons fun rather than feel like work. I get to choose what I want to learn at my own pace

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!

Jed is an excellent music teacher. I have been taking Saxophone lessons for almost 2 years and I have greatly improved, he has taught me everything from scales, theory, to learning how to improvise, in Jazz and Blues. I highly recommend him as a teacher.

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.

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!

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.

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.

As a young guitarist, Ben was extremely patient with me in picking up new material. He took his time in ensuring my understanding of whatever we worked on. Ben allowed his lessons to be fun rather than all work, which was helpful for me as I was a younger student of his. With that being said he was excellent at pushing and encouraging me to get the most out of the experience. Ben was far and away the best instructor I ever worked with.
