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!
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!
My 9 year old daughter has been taking guitar lessons with Julie for a year. She has progressed nicely and really enjoys the lessons. The end of the year recital was wonderfully entertaining and a great goal for my daughter to work towards. Julie has been easy to communicate with and I have already recommended her to other mothers.
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!
I have been taking guitar lessons with David since 2010. He's a remarkable instructor. He covers everything from technique to songwriting to theory to you name it. I've learned a great deal from him and it has been fun. You'll have a blast too!
In one lesson, Tristan offered a lot of useful information about playing guitar. He also seemed to really enjoy teaching, which makes for a fun lesson. He knew I was struggling with thumb joint pain and came with strategic stretches and healthy playing technique tips to help me avoid doing further damage. He also offered exercises for memorizing notes on the guitar and introduced me to triad chords for easier playing than the barre chords I was used to. He travelled to my house on a Saturday evening, which fit great with my schedule. I highly recommend Tristan as a guitar teacher!
Great teacher that makes learning fun and easy to understand for players of all levels. I've been playing guitar for 20+ years. I decided to take guitar lessons (again) to ramp up my guitar playing and music theory knowledge. Rob has helped (and continues to help) me get to that "next level". - Pat D
I’ve been taking guitar lessons with Josh for eight months now and I have learned so much from him. I’ve gained more confidence in my guitar playing and look forward to my lessons each week. Helpful?
I have three guitar lessons with Evan and he has already given me so much great stuff to work on! I had been teaching myself for about six months, but Evan has done so much more for me and shown me so many ways to improve. I am really looking forward to continuing learning from him.
Really enjoying working with Jacob! He’s very talented, patient and fun to work with. Would recommend to anyone looking for a boost in their guitar abilities.
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.
Always great lessons! Christyn knows what she's doing, and is always there to help! Very friendly and helpful and she is easy to get along with.
As a pop/jazz singer myself, I undertook weekly private lessons with Jordan at the New England Conservatory in the Spring 2018 Semester. It is sometimes hard to find both an excellent teacher and singer, yet Jordan excels in both areas. He is able to pinpoint exactly what you aren’t doing correctly and show you the right technique to be able to reach the high notes with confidence. If I ever didn’t understand the right method the first time, he would effortlessly find another way to explain the right technique until I finally understood how to implement it into my singing. He is the master of getting rid of bad habits with innovative voice exercises and I always felt like I improved after every lesson. I feel privileged to have studied with him during my studies at the conservatory and I highly recommend him without hesitation.
I was a complete beginner at 50! John has been excellent at introducing me to guitar so I can play songs right away. After a couple of months, I searched online for what makes a good guitar teacher and John does them all.
I've been taking guitar lessons from Billy for over 3 years and I have learned so much. He makes the lessons easy and fun.
I’ve been learning guitar on my own for a while now but working with Devon has already made me get better so much quicker. He knows just about every type of music so he makes it easy to learn whatever songs you like. It’s clear he’s got a masters degree I music but he’s such a nonjudgmental and chill teacher. Recommended if you want to learn guitar, bass, ukulele or how to make electronic music.
I have been learning from Akshit for six months now and is an amazing teacher and guitarist to learn from His emphasis on guitar basics really push you to zone of being a professional guitar player
I have been playing guitar for over 30 years. I've taught off and on for the last 10 years. The method I use will be to pick songs that the student wants to learn, but throwing in some scales and modes as "homework" each lesson. You do your homework, and you will learn or be taught a segment of whichever piece you want to learn. If I feel it is beyond your abilities, I will tell you so, but I'll still teach you the song in small increments, eventually putting the song together . If a song is beyond my abilities, I will also tell you, as I am not Yngwie Malmsteen, however I will do my best to teach you whatever I can. My students must be committed to learning, prompt and dedicated to their lessons(for Jr High School and High School levels, a certain academic requirement is in place, my heart goes to those who believe in being a guitarist for a living as a sure thing, its not impossible, but highly improbable. I require a passing grade in all subjects from 7th grade to 12t, that will be in the contract you or your legal guardian will sign. In this day and age, living a real life, with real bills, and real responsibilities, making your living as a guitarist is possible, but not practical, and I won't have any of my guitar students ignoring their school studies to only playing guitar, and not paying any focus on the long term. Guitar playing is rewarding, its fun, it brings people together, builds hand eye coordination, its fun, chicks dig a guy who plays guitar, and vice versa, dudes love a gal that can play guitar, it builds self confidence, requires focus and determination, but nobody draws more attention or admiration than a guy or gal that can grab a guitar, and belt out a tune or two.
I'm currently a student at Berklee College of Music in Boston. I've been singing and performing piano for over 12 years. I also play guitar, mandolin, and trumpet. I was brought up to be a classical pianist but have since transitioned into a rock/pop/jazz pianist. I have performed in local performances of opera classics such as Porgy and Bess, Carmen, and La Traviata, alongside distinguished members of the Virginia Opera Company for the Buckhill Skytop Music Festival in Northeastern Pennsylvania.
