Very good experience. Very prompt in getting back to me to begin guitar lessons. Chris tailors my lessons to make them fun but challenging. Learning a lot and looking forward to continuing lessons.

Thom is the one of the most knowledgeable musicians I’ve met, and his lessons surprised me each visit. He adjusts the pace of the lesson based on my previous guitar skills; Also remaining patient and communicating tricks, tips and music theory to help better understand why and how the guitar works. He’s also an easy guy to talk to, and I would definitely recommend him as a top notch guitar teacher.

Jakes a great teacher. Very patient and encouraging. I had a little knowledge of the guitar before I started taking lessons, and Jake has, in just four lessons, increased my ability significantly. I really look forward to my lessons each week. Has helped me with finger picking, flat picking, practice techniques, and reading tabs.

Jose is a tremendous musician and amazing teacher. He has a great personality and a excellent didactic approach to every lesson. I requested classes on Spanish and he was able to adapt classes reminding me also the terms in English. in 2 classes Ive been able to familiarized with guitar basics and even learn couple of chords. I definitely would recommend Jose to any person who wants to learn guitar.

Jake is an excellent teacher and just a cool dude. After several years of "playing" guitar with no training, I started getting frustrated with the lack of progress and decided to take lessons and I'm glad I went with Jake. He's very keen in gearing the lessons to meet the student's particular goals which is exactly what I needed. I've made more progress with these lessons in couple of months than I did in years on my own and more importantly it's been a lot of fun.

I started playing ukulele a few years ago and took lessons with a teacher that were, sadly, unfulfilling and unmotivating. I gave up on lessons until I decided to finally pick up guitar and try again to move forward with more lessons and strengthen my music theory base. Trevor has made learning the guitar a worthwhile investment that is absolutely paying off. Suddenly things make so much more sense musically, and I’m excited to practice at home and prepare to come back to my next lesson with new things to show him and new questions to ask. Trevor has been a delight as a teacher. He’s patient, understanding, funny, and willing to try more than a few angles to find out what excites his students and drives them to be better musicians than they were when they entered the room. I never dread a lesson with him, and I’m always just a little bummed when they’re finally over!

Mike has been helping me get back to playing guitar since a little over a month and is been great! His lessons cater to your knowledge level while also giving the right path to improving. Would highly recommend for a player at any level looking to up their playing skills.

It's been a delight taking lessons from Trevor. He is one of those unique teachers, who not only excel at their craft, but have a very keen eye towards the art of teaching. He absolutely met me where I was at on my guitar learning journey, and gave the right guidance and nudge to set me on the right path. Wish I could continue taking lessons with him (but cannot anymore due to personal circumstances). Would highly recommend!

Jake is definitely the most skilled guitar teacher I've had and overall a great guy. He can do any genre of music you throw at him any style. He creates a lesson plan based around your goals and does everything step by step without overwhelming you with loads of information. I would highly recommend his services.

Chris is a wonderful guitar teacher. I hadn't picked up my guitar for years and was itching to get back into playing. I found Chris on Thumbtack and that same day was set up with my first lesson later in the week. I love how Chris asked me to come up with a list of my favorite songs I wanted to learn how to play. He's a talented musician himself and it's great to feel like I'm just scratching the surface of his musical knowledge, even though I'm not a beginner. Very patient guy, which is great when I'm fumbling through a more challenging song. Highly recommend Chris for beginners and more advanced players alike. Cool guy.

I’ve been studying with Chris for about 10 months and I’m very happy with the progress I’ve made. I decided to pick up the guitar a couple of years ago when I was working in Omaha. I took lessons for about a year and I learned the basics but I also picked up some bad habits. I took a job in Austin and after being here for 6 months I wanted to get started again. I found Chris on Thumbtack and I’m glad I did. Chris tailors the lesson to what I’m trying to accomplish instead of using a set routine for every student. I’m 53 and my musical tastes and goals are different from his younger students. He also understands how I learn and gives me the right amount each week to challenge me but not frustrate me. I work and travel a lot so my practice time is limited some weeks. Even with the lack of time to devote to the guitar, I’ve made tremendous progress in the months I’ve been studying with Chris. I would recommend him to anyone who is serious about learning the guitar, either a beginner like me or a more advanced person looking to improve.

I'm 42 and learning guitar after a lifetime of trying to pick things up here and there. I've only had 4 lessons with Chris but I'm already seeing results with Chris's coaching. He's uber organized and always prepared with my tabs. The 30 minutes is focused start to finish. I feel like its a class with structure, and a goal. I also appreciate he has a dedicated teaching space in his home so setup is snap.

I took lessons with Trevor for about 4-5 months. I was basically a complete beginner when I started taking lessons. In that time I really learned how to slow things down and practice methodically/efficiently. Trevor is a pretty clean and technique oriented player and he does a great job at breaking down those concepts. He won't ever teach you anything you don't want to learn and he'll go as far into theory as you wanna go. I definitely recommend him as he is well rounded musician and has knowledge on a lot of genres. Not to mention he is very easy going and always answers any guitar, gear or music related questions with a lot of depth.

I've now had several sessions with Howard. He is a dedicated instructor - he does a great job at assessing where the student is, and then the lessons are adapted for the student. He's been instructing guitar for many years, and has a clear passion for teaching. I always feel like he's right there with me and has far exceeded my hopes. He has students return for his advice and instruction - Howard strikes me as someone I hope to be taught by him for many years. I hope I'm as passionate as a student as he is for instructing.
