I have just began my guitar lessons with Vaughn and I'm already so excited an motivated. He is a very engaging and knowledgeable instructor. He puts everything in an easy way to comprehend as well as persuading an immense amount of motivation in learning.
I'm a self taught drummer who has always wanted to learn how to play guitar. I have no delusion of being slash. More like Glenn Fry or Jimmy Buffet. I bought a stratocaster in 2008 and tried to teach myself by watching instructional videos online. Since then I've also acquired an electric bass, an acoustic bass and an acoustic guitar. Since then I got long on guitar theory by playing with other musicians and watching online instruction, but I was still short on skills. So I recently decided it was time to pay for lessons and really try to learn to play. I found Thumbtack, researched guitar teachers in Houston and asked for a few quotes. Eric was the most expensive instructor, but it was pretty clear he was my best option. I wanted lessons in my home on Friday evenings because I work long hours M-Th. By Friday evening I just want to relax and so a lesson after work seemed like a nice way to start the weekend. But in addition to being available on Friday nights, other students had encouraging things to say about Eric. Eric starts the first lesson by figuring out what you already know so he can tailor your lessons to your strengths and weaknesses. This is a continuous theme for Eric. Sometimes my nephew takes a lesson from Eric right after I do and I listen in. Eric won't teach two students at the same time because he tailors the lesson to the student, and I've noticed that the lessons he gives my nephew are never the same as the ones he gives me. I've taken about 8 lessons from Eric now and my nephew and I have advanced at different rates. He has take about 4 lessons and he doesn't practice as much on his own. After a few guitar lessons I picked up my bass and in an afternoon I learned to play 2 Nirvana songs and an AC/DC tune. I love to drum to my favorite songs, and I'd like to be able play the concert footage on YouTube and strum along on the guitar. So when Eric showed up for my next lesson I had my bass out and Smells Like Teen Spirit playing on my home theatre system. He sat down and watched me play all three songs along to the videos. When Eric showed up for my next lesson he had me pull up Hotel California and taught me how to play the chord sequence that Glen Fry plays so I could play along with the video. If I was the karate kid than this was the moment when I finally learned what wax on and wax off was all about. Frankly, making chords intimidates me. I have huge hands and I have trouble getting my fingers in the right place so all the strings vibrate freely. But somehow I could tell that Eric new I was ready. All the lessons to that point were focused on drills to improve skill sets, and I had only learned two chords. But Eric showed me all 6 chords and I was able to play all of them in sequence except the barre chord. We're working on those now. But I now know 5 chords that are basically common to almost any 80s rock song. So Eric's instruction has made me capable of teaching myself most any simple guitar rhythm using the interweb. I feel confident now that I'm going to be able to play along to some of my favorite songs. To me, that's a goal accomplished in about 8 lessons. But I want to keep going and see what else Eric can teach me. I also want to add that Eric has been great about discussing issues about the guitar itself. My stratocaster had some issues that needed to be corrected and Eric helped identify them and explain my options. The biggest one was with the tremolo. The springs went bad over the years and a simple $6 replacement put the bridge back in it's proper place, which corrected problems with the action, tuning, intonation and sustain of the guitar. Now I have a much better understanding of the mechanics of the guitar as well, which helps me maintain a $1,000 investment.
Have started beginners piano lessons. I am know on my 3rd lesson. My teacher Christine is fabulous! Everything is satisfactory
My son takes guitar lessons from Giancarlo, but, being a guitar player, I sit in and observe them. Having had lessons as a kid, I can state that, without a doubt, Giancarlo is an outstanding teacher. He is great with kids. He can teach many different styles of playing and is smart about mixing it up so that the student stays interested. I've learned a bunch by watching Giancarlo and I know my playing has improved quite a bit due to this. I had lessons as a kid and my teacher was nowhere near as effective as Giancarlo. I would recommend him to anyone without hesitation and I know my son would as well.
Really just top-notch guitar playing and teaching. I'll always have Rockstar Academy to Thank for my skills. I really can't recommend enough. I've known Jim for a long time and he just keeps getting better as a guitarist and musician, so he will never run out of insight or techniques to pass on. Professional and flexible as well.
After going through many music-related instructors for quality assurance, I believe that Mr.Corb has done nothing but exceeded my expectations in terms of teaching the many theoretical and musical components the guitar. One great aspect of Mr. Corb is that he has patience. Often times, many private teachers in my previous experience have been quite impatient with my inability to meet their standards, and have resulted in frustration and disinterest in continuing to play. Mr. Corb has been extremely patient with me, despite how many times I have played horribly. I was honestly satisfied with the way he conducted his lessons. I would tune before we would start the lesson, and there was a variation with what we did. He taught me scales, improv with the scales, bar chords, theoretical aspect of the keys, song that I requested, and so forth. Overall, I've had a great experience with Mr. Corb. If not for my busy schedule, I would've loved to further my education on the guitar.

James is a great teacher for guitar students of any age, including adults. He can demonstrate and teach many differing styles of guitar such as rock, pop, bluegrass, blues, etc. I am a senior adult taking classical guitar lessons and James covers all aspects such as basic theory, preferred technique and even unique classical guitar physical characteristics. This keeps excitement in the learning process.
