I spoke with John today by phone to set up guitar lessons as a birthday present for my husband. He was easy to talk to and flexible as far as setting up lesson times. I'm excited to have found his help!
Piano lessons. Nathan is an excellent teacher, professional and patient.
Matt is a wonderful teacher! He's extremely knowledgable and breaks things down so that it's easier to understand. I'd recommend Matt for guitar lessons to anyone!
Matt is great!!! He’s very patient and makes the lessons fun for my child.
I was excited about learning to play guitar, but how to begin was the problem. First, Denny called; his personality was warm and calming. He was very confident in his abilities, stated as a matter of fact, but does not major on that; he stayed focused on me, as a beginner, and how he could best serve my needs. From meeting me at the music store and providing guidance with my first guitar purchase through my first lesson, Denny provided gentle guidance and helped build my confidence. After the first lesson, I was able to play chords clearly and even had others to learn during my independent practice. I am very grateful I chose Denny as the professional to begin my new journey with. If you seriously want to learn how to play and enjoy your guitar experience, you owe it to yourself to get in contact with Denny.
I was so lucky to have found Jimmy to teach my daughter guitar. He is talented, knowledgeable, patient and kind. She blossomed under his tutelage!
Keenan is very talented musician who took the time get to know me and listened to what I was looking for in guitar instruction. He is very personable and easy to learn from.
I've been taking guitar lessons with Dan for a couple months now. I have been played piano since I can remember, and always wanted to learn how to play guitar, but never got around to it. I can say I'm definitely getting more comfortable and confident with it after a few lessons. I like that he doesn't just teach you basic chords, but also really gets into finger picking and intricate exercises as well. On top of being a great teacher, he's such a friendly and inspiring human being. I would highly recommend guitar lessons with him!
Both of my children have been taking lessons (violin and piano) at The Music House for two years now and we have had a wonderful experience. Our teachers have been professional and engaged. They seem to know how to really work well with each individual child and cater the lessons to their level as well as their needs/desires. I can't recommend strongly enough!
Great teacher. He's the real deal as a performer and player and can get to the heart of what you need to learn whatever stage you're at. As far as rocking blues guitar, Tony's the man. Great guy!
Bob Lewis was my guitar instructor for 6 years. As an adult student I was nervous about beginning this journey, but Bob was committed to helping me succeed. He was patient and understanding, and knew when to give me that extra push. One of my greatest memories is sitting in class, and he and I playing a song together. It really helped my confidence. Additionally, Bob is a really nice guy!
My son has been taking guitar lessons with Khris Miller now for over a year. We have been very happy with Khris as a teacher. He makes learning fun which keeps our son interested. He encourages the kids to create their own music. Half the children at recital played their own compositions which I thought was wonderful. He's an accomplished guitarist; he's not only a good musician, but he's truly interested in teaching. I think he's a great teacher for kids!
Tara Tinsley is extremely talented! She also has the upmost patience while teaching. I am a beginner at the guitar, and if there was a word to describe "less a than beginner," that would be me. She went at my own pace because obviously I am very slow to switch between chords. I have taken a couple lessons so far and as long as I practice what she teaches at home I know I will be able to play songs in no time. I would recommend her to anybody for guitar lessons. Her office is in a great, historic building in downtown Tacoma. It is a professional office building with free street parking close by (which is almost impossible to find downtown). The lobby has seating for students and/or parents to wait. For parents that don't want to wait inside, there is a coffee and wine bar a block away! If anyone is skeptical she has music on YouTube and Spotify. Check it out and I know you will be convinced to learn from her!
My daughter takes guitar lessons from Keith. She's 10 and pretty shy but Keith is very patient. He has taught her about new genres of music and new musicians. He encourages her to bring in things she wants to learn. She enjoys her lessons a lot and has discovered a talent she didn't know she had, with Keith's gentle, encouraging direction. She has enjoyed it so much she's inspired her sister to take lessons from Keith as well. In addition, Keith is phenomenonally talented and sometimes he plays a little after her lesson is over, and that's always a treat!
I find that if you really love what you do then the quality will speak for itself. I found that I was terrible at waiting tables because I lacked passion for it. So I had to ask myself what is that I love doing? I love learning French and I love playing my guitar. So I set up a business around these two loves of my life. I love watching people as they learn that it is possible to learn a second language or play along their favorite songs on guitar.
I commit to supporting the goals of my students, whether it is just learning to play a few of their favorite songs to pursuing a career in the music industry!
I offer vocal and guitar lessons for beginners and intermediate-level students. I'm a Berklee College of Music alumni. Composition and arranging lessons are available as well.
I have a unique way of teaching guitar, blending traditional guitar theory and the number system. You are going to see results quickly and complete your first lesson with a better understanding of the guitar. Many people have told me, "I tried and just don't have it!" The good news is... it's the same for everyone. Everyone suffers the initial two to four weeks of difficulty in training their hands to play the guitar. You just have to work through the rough beginning stages. The guitar players you admire struggled at some point. But, were too stubborn to give up. I charge $20 for a one-hour lesson.
I am a Nashville singer/songwriter/guitarist with a degree in songwriting from Belmont University. I am available to teach lessons primarily on acoustic guitar or songwriting; however, I am open to vocal or general music lessons as well.
I'm willing to suit the needs of all students. If they are willing to learn I will teach them everything I know.
