I took weekly guitar lessons from Matt Kass for six years when he lived in Philadelphia. Matt focuses on teaching you the music you want to learn to play and at a pace that is comfortable to your level of proficiency. He combines instruction on the fundamentals of playing a guitar with the basics of music theory so that lesson time is spent not just on how to play the guitar by why particular chords or notes work together and their relationship to the different modes of the major scale. As a professional musician, Matt is thoroughly knowledgeable about the guitar and music in general but is incredibly personable, thoughtful, reliable and friendly. He is able to tailor his teaching approach to your individual needs and helps you progress at a pace that is appropriate to your skill level. The thing that impressed me the most in Matt's teaching ability was his patience and willingness to help me around obstacles or plateaus in my playing ability. You feel that he is fully invested in your learning and shows a willingness to try different approaches to helping you succeed. I would highly recommend Matt as a guitar instructor. He is a terrific teacher and an excellent musician.

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!

Taking lessons at La Vergne Smyra Guitar Lessons is the wisest choice you could make. Not only is Grant a great teacher, he is also a great guy who cares about seeing his students succeed and is 100% committed in doing so! If you're looking for the best, you can stop your search here.

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.

Matt is my son's guitar teacher and band coach. Matt is awesome! My son and I adore him. Matt really connects with his students through an approachable style and great sense of humor. He is truly interested in their success. Matt is experienced, enthusiastic and creative. He helps my son choose the type of music that he is both interested in and that suits his playing style. This makes lessons fun and productive. With this kind of support and guidance, it is no surprise to me that my sons band won The Battle of the Bands two years running. Bottom line, Matt is a wonderful and trusting person and an amazing teacher and a mentor for my son.

John was very helpful in teaching me the proper technique and foundation's of playing guitar. He broke down the basics and instructed on how I could practice on my own and improve my technique. I would be happy to recommend John to anyone interested in learning a musical instrument.

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!

My 11-year-old son has been taking guitar lessons from Zeb for about a year, and has loved every second of it. He honestly looks forward to his lesson all week long and is disappointed any time we have to cancel. Zeb is such a natural with him, and my son really looks up to him. I love that he is learning so much and having such a great time doing it!

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!
