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!

Matt has been giving guitar lessons to our daughter for about two years. She has learned an incredible amount. He is able to judge just how much to push her so that she continues to learn but also really enjoys her lessons and playing. He has taught her a lot of music theory along the way. We like him so much that we're continuing her lessons via Skype even though Matt has moved away from our area. He's a great teacher and we absolutely recommend him.

The collective team of instructors at Cedarstone, brings a broad set of musical knowledge and teaching skills that is an absolute treasure.

Our daughter's experience with Matt Cummings was little short of transformative for her, and, truth be told for us as her parents, as well. Matt worked with our daughter throughout her high school career, mentoring 3 different bands she fronted as lead singer, but he also helped her record single songs and an EP, introduced her to the studio, to other musicians and the broader world of music, always providing. Matt was always able to negotiate the sometimes fine line between teacher/mentor and friend/confidante. He served as therapist and counselor as often as not and whenever needed. Matt truly understood and conveyed to his kids the delicate balance of fun and joy with hard work and discipline, all resulting in growth, both musically and personally. He is serious about his craft and expects his students to be as well; but experiences with Matt never appeared mundane or routine. He unlocked the power and joy in making music together. Matt is an incredibly talented musician in his own right. He sings with a powerful, emotive, raw voice and is nothing short of a virtuoso on the guitar moving fluidly and seamlessly across the musical spectrum (R&B, funk, rock, pop and jazz.) We've paid to see/hear him perform and would do so again. That said his immense personal talent does not get in the way with students, rather it serves as a tool in both teaching and exemplifying what they can aspire to. Matt is truly facile in every element and ingredient of the contemporary musical scene and has a depth of experience and sage wisdom that belies his relative youth. I've watched him personally work with kids from 10 to 18, and have no doubt he bring the same talents and industry to students older and younger. He treats clients with warmth, respect and good humor; but can be a task master as and if needed. I recommend him heartily and without reservation. You are putting your child(ren) in the best of hands when you allow them to work and flourish with him. Our daughter left high school a year early and matriculated to Berklee College of Music, Matt's own alma mater; all this in no small measure due to his tutelage, devotion, knowledge and friendship. I am hard-pressed to come up with a negative in working with Matt these last few years. He proved nothing less than a treasure musically and beyond.

    Patrick has been a guitar teacher for my two sons (ages 11 & 20) for about 3 years. He has been outstanding. Patrick found out what each of my boys wanted out of guitar lessons before teaching them - did they want to be a musician, did they just want a hobby, did they just want to learn to play, WHAT did they want? He finds out what makes them "tick" in life and he naturally, flawlessly, magically works that into learning to play the guitar in a fun, casual, laid-back way. He's incredibly patient and gives them so much encouragement to expand their ideas and thoughts. He knows when to push and when to back off. My oldest had taught himself some things off of Youtube but was ready to move on to the next level. Patrick was phenomenal in that transition. Patricks talents are endless at whatever level. We are so blessed to have found him.

    Ace comes to our lessons on time, and with a plan. She remembers what I've been practicing, and knows how to get me to the next level. She gives me her full attention for the whole time we're in the lesson, and when it's time to wrap it up, she leaves me with clear assignments for how to practice and what to practice - and it's always something fun, challenging and yet attainable that makes me want to come back to my instrument. Ace makes it fun to work hard at getting better.

      My daughter took classical guitar lessons from Will Fruchterman for one year. He taught her so much and really helped her technical skills improve greatly. It was wonderful to see how much her motivation increased once she started working with Will. He taught her many new songs and worked with her on special side projects, including helping her to prepare a blues-style song for an audition. He was very flexible in meeting our schedule and willing to adjust as needed. My daughter's love and passion for classical guitar have definitely grown and vastly improved in her year with Will. In addition to helping my daughter, he also helped her school guitar club, inviting them to participate in a special event at Christopher Newport University. Meeting other guitar students and seeing others perform has helped the school guitar club build new goals to strengthen their skills. So, Will has indirectly influenced about twenty other kids, as well! Sadly, he moved away, but he did take the time to find her a new classical guitar teacher. We are eternally grateful for finding such a professional, patient, and dedicated teacher in Will Fruchterman.

      Michael Chirri was my guitar teacher when I first started to play over 2 decades ago. I still benefit to this day from the scales & techniques he taught. What sets Michael apart from other guitarists, besides playing at a Masters level, is his enthusiasm for teaching, his encouragement, and the diversity of styles that he can play. My endorsement is gladly given, but not needed. The quality speaks for itself. -Dan Minard

      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!

      I took guitar lessons with Evan for over six months. He was extremely patient with me and I always had a good time. He taught me chords by picking songs that I would enjoy practicing and showing me simplified versions of them. I never felt ashamed or overwhelmed. I started with absolutely no experience and he gave me manageable lessons but I always felt like I was moving forward. If I hadn't moved out of the area, I would definitely still be taking lessons!

      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!

      About

      Guitar is my passion; teaching is my joy. I am a college student here in Nashville, and have had a love of music since the day I was born. I come from a very musically talented family, from which came the name "JamesGang". I sing, play piano, and write music, but most of all, I play the guitar. I am experienced in all forms of music reading: tablature, sheet music, and the Nashville number system. I am also very experienced in music theory. My guitar abilities include blues, rock, folk, country, Spanish guitar, flamenco, classical, and playing by ear. I am interested in teaching the guitar to all ages, and I am great with kids, as I have a brother whom I started teaching when he was 7. My teaching style is extremely flexible to the goals and requests of my students, and my prices are very low. I am willing to come to any location you request or to have the lessons done on my college campus. I am greatly honored to teach my passion to anyone who desires to learn, and I look forward to teaching you or your children the art of the acoustic guitar. Have a blessed day!

        I'm enrolled in the Dark Horse Studios Audio Production program beginning in January, and as I'll be in class about 9hours a day (either 8am-3pm or 330pm-9pmish) I'll have quite some time to continue focusing on my bass playing as well as music composition work, so about an hour twice a week would be perfect : )
