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.
Quick response.. Exactly what I was looking for in guitar lessons. Everyone was very helpful. Thank you.
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 didnt 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 didnt know exactly what I was looking for, but this was ita 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 hes done, and theyre 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 hes telling the truth. Hell be just as honest when Im 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 himI no longer feel frustrated, like Im 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 hes serious about, and seriously involved with and expert in musiches inspired me and hell inspire you.
I hired Renato for my son's guitar lessons. In addition to regular teaching process, Renato's approach to teaching was connecting with my son in his musical interests and incorporating that into their lessons. My son was mildly interested in music lessons beforehand, after his lessons with Renato he wants to learn guitar and piano! Renato's love of music and sharing that passion with my son, was a pleasure to observe. Highly recommended, amazing teacher with kids!
An experienced teacher that has made learning the guitar fun but challenging.. I would recommend Williamson to any person interested in learning from scratch or just wanting to improve their skills.
She is awesome to work with. My daughter loves to go to get lessons. My daughter has made great progress in her singing and piano lessons while working with Jennifer. I would recommend Her to anyone.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Michael has been teaching my kids piano and guitar. He is patient and really connects with them. He teaches them current music to keep them interested but he also teaches theory and mechanics. Great experience for my kids.
Always a great pleasure to work with! I've been taking guitar lessons with Zachary for about a year now, and there is really no better teacher around. He is a great classical talent and has so much to offer a student. Five stars!
I am a beginner, intermediate, and advanced guitar teacher. I have 20 years of experience. My lessons include the following: * Tab * Sheet music * Scales * Chords * Modes
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.
Rock, jazz and blues guitarists: Take your skills to the next level. Study with critically acclaimed guitarist and recording artist, Carl Filipiak.
I pay attention to detail and learn well from mistakes, such as to teach you exactly what you want to learn in a way that makes sense.
Lessons tailor made to the students desires to grow on an artistic and technical level. I examine where the student is and cultivate a wholistic learning environment that covers more than just technical proficiency on the instrument.
