Excellent. I wanted to give my husband piano lessons as a surprise. Tatia was super helpful getting it all set up. She emailed me right away and then we connected by phone...so easy. The lessons are going great. Rose music group is a very professional organization.

John is a good teacher. He gives good "homework" to practice and works at his students' pace. He also is flexible about scheduling which has been super helpful! I'm really enjoying bass lessons and feel like he is working hard to teach me to play tunes realistic for my skill level and keep up with others!

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 have worked with Matt Cummings for 5 years, he was my band instructor and personal bass teacher. He was always very lenient with style and song choices; he would always be there to help learn new songs, or even write songs. Matt is a very reliable person whom I could trust to be on-time and respectable. Through the countless hours spent with him I have become very close with him. I recommend anyone and everyone to try lessons form him. He is a extremely talented person and I think that he can help everyone get better.

I took guitar lessons with Jason in a group setting and he was very encouraging to every member of the group. He has an intimate knowledge of guitar and has studied music himself extensively. He really knows how to communicate his passion for music so that everyone can learn to enjoy playing, no matter what their current skill level is.

I’ve taken lessons from John for months. I’m a fairly new lead guitarist for our band. My progress has amazed my bandmates in how I now add to the melody of songs using chord inversions and fills. My soloing is more imaginative, soulful and melodic. I especially like the way John tailors his teaching style to my unique needs, always demonstrating the practical application of the theory he explains. Highly recommended.

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!

John patiently sat through my painful early stages of guitar. He really tweaked my playing and brought me to another level. Great player with knowledgeable insight!

About

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 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.
