I have gotten a series of guitar lessons from Stevie. The progress I've made is amazing. If you're looking for a relaxed atmosphere to ask questions and learn to play guitar, Matthews is your guy. He is passionate about music and your ability to get better. I'm very excited to continue to learn more.

I've been taking guitar lessons with Tim for the better part of the year and I couldn't be happier with my experience. He's talented, patient, and super accommodating to my whacky schedule. We've worked on various styles such as Jazz, Folk, and Blues and thanks to Tim I've made significant progress in my guitar playing! I highly recommend Tim as a teacher.

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.

She is a Good and Patient teacher. My son is very happy with his lessons. The Lessons are not long and allows the student to take information home and practice. Her schedule is adjustable for a parent that works 3rd shift.

When I started lessons with Larry, I had been taking guitar lessons for three years under a ‘learn by learning songs’ method. I didn’t know exactly what I needed, but I knew that I wanted get deeper into music, both theoretically and in my guitar work. I tend towards a combination approach of intellectual and emotional, and I value doing things well, and seeing its link to the larger picture of music. When I pursued Larry as a teacher, I realized I was taking a ‘next step’. What I found in Larry as a teacher and person is an expert in blues music and in how to teach music, particularly guitar. He has piqued my intellectual interest and challenges me to keep learning both the guitar techniques and theory. I didn’t know exactly what I was looking for, but this was it—a Peabody Institute-quality education mixed with blues experience, theory and then throw in endless stories about music from the sixties onward, because Larry was there. You can read his bio for all of the things he’s done, and they’re numerous, but I keep learning more. Most importantly, though, Larry is a great teacher. I trust Larry, and I know he sees something in me. He is a cheerleader-style coach, but an honest one. I know that when Larry tells me that I have potential or talent in a certain area, that he’s telling the truth. He’ll be just as honest when I’m not doing something well, also. Larry has a system that works, and he knows how to teach it and adapt it to my style of learning. My understanding of music, my ear especially, has grown leaps and bounds since taking lessons from him—I no longer feel frustrated, like I’m missing something. I know that if I continue to practice what he is teaching me, I am going to be an expert at guitar and will perform publicly. Larry is an amazing resource, a wonderful teacher, a composer, and a pretty funny guy. Most importantly he’s serious about, and seriously involved with and expert in music—he’s inspired me and he’ll inspire you.

I was a complete beginner and Williamson started lessons right at my level. He's patient and "in-tune" with what I need to learn and work more on. He takes my style and music interests into account when creating lessons. I've been taking lessons from him for about 2 months and already I've learned more than I thought I could. Thanks Williamson!

Joel is an incredible teacher! He helped me and 2 other friends (who also take classes with him around the same time) to put together a band that was playing live shows after 6 months of lessons. All of us were completely novice musicians. He even learned how to play a new instrument, the Andean charango, so he could teach one of our band members how to incorporate it into our playing. Joel's lessons are fun and disciplined. Exactly the combination you want for making progress and staying invested in learning how to play your instrument.

Great teacher, even better guy. If you're looking for guitar lessons in Lancaster look no further, he is your man. I came to him with no prior knowledge on how to play the guitar and I've progressed much further than I ever would have expected in less than 6 months of lessons. Also, the man is a legend at playing guitar.

I started taking guitar lessons with Paul after having stopped instruction 5 years before. I found the lessons engaging and relevant as he invites you to explore your areas of interest while instilling the fundamental tools necessary for any musician. These included progressions that allow the greenest to pick up and play along with friends, and the development of essential play by ear skills. Paul was also extremely flexible with scheduling, in addition to coming to my residence. He also charged very reasonably for each lesson.

Max Kuzmyak is a very knowledgeable musician with a large skill set that is useful in the music industry. He can teach trumpet, guitar, voice, and has extensive theory knowledge as well. He is also well versed in recording and audio engineering. Max is very friendly, easy to work with, and professional. I would highly recommend working with him if you are looking for a private teacher, or a recorder.

As an older student who has been playing for thirty-plus years with very little professional instruction, I had concerns about not being able to find a guitar teacher who would be able to break me of my worn-in bad habits. It has been very easy communicating my interests and concerns with Kevin, and his wealth of knowledge of music is very apparent. His approach to teaching is very casual but still maintains direction. My instruction so far has included in-depth scale exercises across the fretboard, music theory & chord construction, popular and classic chord progressions in several genres, exercises in well-known guitar method texts, and just learning how to play a favorite old song. I am always looking forward to my weekly lesson, as does my ten-year-old daughter who has just begun her lessons with Kevin.

Anthony has been providing beginner lessons for my daughter and me for almost a year now. He has an extensive knowledge of music and has used that to tailor individual lesson plans for each of us, allowing us to learn via music we're comfortable with. This keeps us motivated and focused on picking up the chords that our favorite artists use. He's also very patient about the limited amount of time that I can devote to practice, while still coaching me into showing marked improvement- no small feat. Great instructor and I recommend him highly.

I've been playing guitar off and on for over 40 years and I found Alex Lane could teach me technique on slide and new tricks for leads and rhythm quick and easy...for a moderate price too. I highly recommend Alex for the beginner or the player who needs more play.

About

Learning the language of music complex, challenging, and equally rewarding. I take great pride in relating this language to my students. I've taught literally thousands of students since 1994. I believe each student has a unique musical path to forge, and my mission is to provide the tools and inspiration to support their journey.

About

No two students are alike... my instruction reflects this. I tailor each lesson to the musical needs of the student, as well as the emotional needs--the source of excitement, and motivation. I teach modern music ensembles (small groups of varied styles)... I know what is needed to play with other people, skills needed to CREATE with other people...and much of my instruction addresses these disciplines. I believe that LEARNING BY DOING/PLAYING is just as beneficial to the experience of music as the "one on one" and "alone time" is...the time it takes to be conversational on their chosen instrument.

Hire skilled professionals for absolutely everything.
