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!

Nathan is a great teacher who has really expanded my knowledge is music, I have learned so much! I went from just knowing four chords on guitar to learning how to freestyle. Nathan is a great teacher! You will not regret learning from him. :)

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.

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!

    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.

    Bob Lewis was my on and off guitar teacher for close to 10 years in Wilkes-Barre Pa. I started with Bob at 12, gave up (my first mistake!) taught myself came back at 16 and studied with him for four or five years. In those four/five years I learned General to Moderate level Music Theory including Diatonic Theory, Chord building Theory, scale theory, chord progressions, picking posture ect. I could go on for days about what I learned but the fact that the social climate of those thirty minute weekly sessions was always calm, relaxed and full of fresh ideas. Every concept was very straight forward and if it was a bit complex (such as modal guitar solos,) Bob would explain it in a way that made sense based on our prior sessions (aka, he actually adapts to your idiosyncrasies ) At any point when I hit a wall Bob was immediately finding ways to climb over the wall. If it was not in that session by next week he would have devised a plan to work on overcoming the daunting idea at hand. Aside from the straight forward learning methods, if you go into a lesson with Bob off the cuff without any goals in mind for your development he can easily break down what you need to work on and how your should work on it. Also... Bob can shred...so fear not fret board wizards! As for what could have been better I have not much to say. The fact is with most good teachers your own ignorance is usually the problem and when i started at 12 by the time i came back at 16 I realized that Bob's method was not flawed, it was my attention span. The Man is a brilliant guitar player and all around musician and is well worth your time.

      I am learning to play guitar and so grateful to have Lindsay as a teacher. She is such an encouragement! I can tell that she has put thought into each lesson, and that she really wants to help me to grow in my skills. I feel challenged yet very encouraged and comfortable. Plus, she is super talented herself, and that is totally inspiring.

      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!

      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 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!
