Christopher is a great musician. His knowledge in music theory is simply outstanding, and his skill with the guitar is fascinating. Sometimes you've to just stay back, and wonder in amazement how beautifully his fingers traverse the fretboard at an amazing speed while being consistently accurate. He is also a fantastic teacher: always patient with students who doesn't quite have his tenacity with the instrument yet (like me, haha). He tries to figure out what your need is and how to achieve them accordingly. Another good thing is that, besides the scheduled lessons, he is reachable via emails and phones too if you're having any problem with a particular thing. He has also been very accommodating with the dates: whenever I had to make a sudden change to my scheduled lesson due to emergency, he gladly fixed another convenient date and time for me. All in all, you can't go wrong with Christopher as far as guitar lessons go. I highly recommend him as the go to person regardless of your skill level.

Jedi Training. That's what I like to call my guitar lessons. Because Trevor teaches you how to use the force. I like how Trevor gets me out of my left brain with exercises like closing my eyes while I pick out chords & notes. He know how to push me past my comfort zone while still keeping it fun. The topics of lessons aren't one size fits all (like some teachers that teach the same thing every week to all their students) But he tailors each lessons to my interests & deftly weaves all aspects of music together from theory, to chord structure, to picking, to levitating x-wings using your mind.

I've attended two of Jim's classes in classical guitar and music theory. His knowledge of the history of classical guitar and the evolution of our musical system is impressive and interesting. The class is very challenging and far exceeds my expectations. I am sure I will refer to the texts and sheet music he provided for years to come as I continue my musical journey with classical guitar. Also, it's a joy to watch a guitar master demonstrate his craft; it's easier to play after having heard it played well.

I have been taking guitar lessons from Nick recently, and he is great! Very patient and explains things in a way I can understand. Doesn't jump down your throat the way some instructors do. Know he also teaches voice and keyboard lessons, and believe they'd be a good bet too. I would definitely recommend him!!

Steve is a charismatic, patient, listening, fair, and flexible teacher. His diverse musical genre background and his ability to take you into the vast world of music without overwhelming you is a rarity for teachers. I highly recommend his teachings to any level of guiarist/musician from "I don't know how to hold my guitar" to the "I eat Eddie Van Halen for snack cakes." My STORY: At first when I started beginner lessons with Steve, I really didn't know anything and was using a penny as a pick. Not to overwelm me, he got me started on some technique for picking (wth a real pick) and a few basic chord/progression from music I enjoy (from Metallica/Nirvana to Led Zepplin/Pink Floyd and random in betweens on request). I took those lessons and continued to grow as a guitarist. Then a plateu happened and writers block set in. After, a few years had gone by, I picked up the guitar and lessons with Steve again. This time being more advanced than I was previous, he got me head over heels in love with theory, composition and finger picking which is a whole 'nother world of playing!!! I play gigs at coffee houses, bonfires and house parties doing modified covers and original music. I'm hooked on daily playing now! I also used to be so apprehensive about jamming with other people better than me. But because Steve would free jam with me a little past the out time with what I learned, I began feel comfortable with playing with just about anyone. probably had a few dozen sessions with the guy over the years and I never remember him abrubtly stopping a lesson cause the time was up unless there was someone else waiting. My impression of him, was he was more interested in your discovery and elevation than what time it was for the class to end. Who does that??? This is what I know at least as far as formalities go, Steve has a killer guitar performance background from thrash to funk to rock to clasical-not limited to any of them. He also can provide some insight and technique in recording, drumming, and some digital sound creation programs. His credentials are a shining star as he went to Stetson University here in Florida for his music degree. If you don't know anything about Stetson, look it up-it's not an easy school to complete and only can be done with the best of dedications (12-18hours of music a day) I aspired to go, I couldn't cut it. He is diverse, well travelled, has been in arrays of bands, gigged solo, and currently in a somewhat duelling classical guitar thing called En Fuego (If you need a demo of his level of play, listen to that-WOW WOW WOW-I only dream....). I'm pretty sure he does some studio recording nowadays and more than likely has his own rig to record himself and students if requested. Anyway, yeah I'm a nerd cause I wrote a book of a review, but this guy deserves a good referrence as he has worked for it and brought me and many others up to a level not thought previously possible. So stop reading and call him, hire him, ENSLAVE him to your requests! You won't be disappointed!

I took guitar lessons with Tim a couple years ago before he moved away. I knew his skill and talent from his previous work in bands and it was a no-brainer for me to go to him. His ability to assess where you are at as a student and apply the proper curriculum to help advance you in your craft is what you would expect from a quality teacher such as Tim. If you're looking to open your creativity, you can't go wrong seeking guidance with him. He's got my recommendation 🖒👍

I met Chris through a mutant friend when I was interested in learning guitar. From the very first lessons with Chris I learned firmly well how to play the guitar , finger and body positions,technic , music theory everything in a very disciplined manner. While he has a profound and stable classical background he was able to teach me almost every kind of music. I really enjoyed his lessons with him ,I would still be his pupil if had´nt to move for professional reasons.

Dave Wirth is an AMAZING (and patient, and knowledgeable, and fun) guitar teacher (and person). In our family, we've tried several instruments--guitar, violin, harp, drums, piano--and haven't found a better teacher than Dave! He is both low-key and inspiring, funny and sincere. I truly can't imagine a better guitar teacher than Dave Wirth!

I've been taking Classical guitar lessons from Josh for over a year. I played when in high school and, in my late 30s, decided it was time to take it up again. Josh has taught me so much, I'm better than I ever was as a young player. He's professional, courteous and highly skilled both at playing and teaching guitar. I plan to be with Josh for may years to come.

Hi, Pat has been my sons guitar teacher for the past 2 years and he was wonderful. His personality and ability to connect with his students really set him apart from the other teachers we have found. The level of patience and understanding that he had with a sometimes reluctant novice student made him a perfect fit for my son. We are so sorry to see him go and wish him nothing but the best for him. thanks Pat,

Howard is a professional musician who puts as much effort into his lessons as he does his performances. He has taught me jazz, country, folk, pop, & rock songs that I can play following his instructions and the tabs he writes for me. My interest is in learning the different techniques pro guitar players use, which Howard has taught me. He has the patience to teach novices to play a song from beginning to end, including riffs and solos once they become more advanced. I've also learned music theory from him, which has helped me become a better singer with the choirs I've joined, in addition to making me a better guitar player. He accommodates whatever I request and is always prepared in advance. I live in NW Austin, but the drive is well worth the effort for his lessons. It's a beautiful and relaxing drive to Lakeway, and I wouldn't go anywhere else for instructions even if they were just around the block.

    Garrett definitely knows his stuff. He's been super helpful not only with technique, but with filling in gaps both in theoretical knowledge and guitar maintenance. I'd definitely recommend him to anyone looking to improve at any level.
