High praise for Otis Read. He is a talented musician, and shares his musical creativity and teaching skills with me every Friday morning. He has done so since September 2017. Otis is attentive, patient, congenial and enthusiastic. He has innovative answers for the numerous questions I have about chords, reading music, fingerpicking—anything that comes up during our lessons. He brings himself totally to these lessons, never preoccupied or rushing through them. I am always curious, and he takes the time to show me alternative keys for various songs, styles/methods of strumming/plucking as well as inventive “moves” on the guitar. I have learned so much in the nine months we’ve been working together. Otis is also honest, no false praise from him. He challenges me weekly, making me a better player. When I get discouraged about being unable to negotiate a complicated chord or frustrated with my lack of plucking agility, he’s always encouraging and supportive. One anecdote: Several of my musicians friends,—guitar, mandolin and stand-up bass —were playing at my house recently during a big party. They insisted I play with them—I was petrified, deer-in-the-headlights intimated. I got my guitar and sat in with this talented group, and while I’m not in their league at all, I was able to handle the material and sound good. The musicians complimented me and the rest of our friends applauded. Wow! Thank you, Otis!

Bertrand is a fantastic guitar teacher and clearly a very gifted musician. When I decided to get guitar lessons, I was a little overwhelmed by the choices on thumbtack and I checked out another teacher before I went with Bertrand. Even at the outset, he was very helpful in a non-intrusive way, making sure that he's available and eager to teach but allowing one to make one's choice in one's own time. I've been very happy with my choice. I knew nothing about the guitar when I started and can be easily intimidated or frustrated, but I've been pleasantly surprised by how much fun it's been to learn from him. He's always cheerful, positive, encouraging and most of all, he works hard to make it fun for the learner. He mixes music theory with practice drills seamlessly. The 1hr class goes by quickly and I'm surprised to find that I enjoy practicing!

Guitar Lessons : I had a good experience with Andy. I had to stop lessons for a long out of town trip. Plan on starting back in the spring 2014. I had a mixed bag of guitar skills and he was able to focus on what I needed to learn and show me how to do it. Thanks

Shane is an awesome guitar teacher! He is very laid back, fun, and pays attention to where you are as a student. He pushes you, but also makes sure you're still having fun because he knows that's what it's all about. I highly recommend him as a teacher - and the G4 method is easy to follow. Instead of grabbing your usual beer and a Lyft, spend the cash on guitar lessons you have always wanted to take!

David has been teaching me guitar for a little over a month now. I have already seen great advances in my technique, rhythm, and understanding of music. I have been playing guitar for 9 years off and on, and I have never had professional lessons. I can say that after a month with David, I am playing better than I ever have and believe that my guitar playing skills will continue to progress rapidly with David's help. His teaching technique is very casual and fun, almost conversational, and his insights are spot on. He is exactly what I hoped for in an instructor when I started looking at guitar lessons and I would highly recommend him for anyone who loves guitar, regardless of their skill level. He is a 'must hire' professional!

I am an adult piano student and I have simply had the most wonderful experience at TDS! I have had lessons with 2 different instructors, both of whom were wonderful! As an adult learner I am interested in playing for my own enjoyment, and I have found that I have learned so much more than I ever expected! Piano lesson evenings are my favorite night of the week! I highly recommend TDS for piano lessons.

If you are looking for a superior guitar instructor, go no further - Jonas Kublickas is that person! Our son has been taking lessons from Jonas for a little over two years. Even though our son is dyslexic and learns differently, Jonas understood the situation, connected with him, and has turned him into the second best guitarist in Salzburg smile emoticon Jonas will always have our thanks, and we are proud to recommend him to anyone who is considering taking guitar lessons.

Prior to taking formal lessons, I had tried some online lessons and guitar books with limited success and great frustration. I decided that I should give formal lessons a try and began taking lessons from Rob in February of 2016. It is safe to say that I have made great progress over the last 10 months. Rob is a patient teacher and always very encouraging. He knows when to push students out of their comfort zone so they keep progressing. Rob makes learning guitar really enjoyable....lessons are truly my favorite part of every week.

My boys started learning guitar with Felix and have continued to grow and now love playing for the past several years. His methodology of teaching makes the learning fun and exciting with the ability to start playing the instrument immediately without even knowing how to read sheet music. Felix makes the learning experience a very positive one and one that my boys have cherished. I highly recommend him to anyone who really wants to learn to play guitar.

Pierce and I are so very grateful for Matt. He is the guitar teacher and role model I wish I had found as a young girl and I am so very thankful we have met him. Pierce looks forward to his lesson each week. I watch him as he enthusiastically engages in each lesson and I just love Matt's energy, spirit, kindness, patience, and method. Matt is amazing with children and he creates an environment that is friendly and inspiring.

My son took beginner piano lessons from Fiona last year. He is a very sensitive boy and was nervous about learning an instrument for the first time, but Fiona put him at ease right away. She has a sweet and earnest teaching style, and explains new concepts in a way that's welcoming and easy to understand. I know her willingness to teach him whatever music he wanted to learn went a long way towards keeping his attention on the piano and away from the iPad. We always looked forward to our lessons with her!

Matt is a wonderful teacher and person. He sincerely wants to help people reach their potential and goals for learning guitar. Not only does he spend the time to get to know your background and areas for improvement, but he also caters to your particular style (blues, folk, classical, metal) and is flexible schedule-wise. I completely recommend Matt as a teacher. I have tried many instructors before and none have come close to Matt's patience and willingness to adjust his explanation style to fit your needs.

Mr. Dennis has both the ability and patience to teach students of all grades and competency level. He makes learning fun and my daughter looks forward to her Sax lessons every week. Mr. Dennis pro-actively puts music ensembles together to showcase his students’ work and boast their confidence. He also suggests outside programs for the kids that both challenges their comfort zones and expands their musical horizons.

    About

    As a guitar instructor, my teaching methods are personal and thorough; it addresses the needs and desires of the student first. If you are a beginner and you want to learn how to play pop songs or if you're an experienced player who is looking to expand his or her own musical talents, I will be able to bring out the best in you. My rate is very reasonable and competitive with other instructors in the area.
