I contacted Georgie for guitar lessons. I was a beginner at the time with absolutely no experience with guitar. Georgie has been fantastic with me and my new music journey. He is super patient and he really makes class fun. Not to mention he is a total bad to the bone guitarist! Definitely worth looking into, best price and experience in Fort Worth!
Michael will not only teach you proper mechanics, he will teach you ways to improve upon the "typical" ways of playing to free those fingers up to do more! I have had a couple lessons with him and will have more! I am a musician but only a rough beginner at guitar. I had 15-20 lessons years ago with another master, Dick Gordon Jr. in Tulsa, OK and working with Michael will be a great way to follow those up and get back into learning. He also enjoys helping people to learn to play the songs they want to play in just about any style.
My 10 year old was getting bored with his previous instructor's teaching methods and had been begging us to drop guitar lessons. We thought we would try a different instructor. We've had only one meeting, but I saw a light reappear in my son's eyes and he is excited to start lessons with Jon. The video lessons and use of newer computer technology and has my son excited and motivated to keep learning to play.
We have enjoyed Vic's music for 23 years. When my son was around 8 years old we decided to have Vic give him guitar lessons to try and bring some of that magic home. He is now 16 and loves to entertain us on the back patio during family and friend gatherings. Vic is truly a professional with a plan. I'd recommend him to anyone with a desire to learn to play.
Willysage is teaching me how to play the guitar. I've had two lesson and I'm very pleased with him as a teacher. He's punctual yet laid back. He knows what he's doing and how to teach it very well. He makes what could be overwhelming very managable and I'm excited to practice and keep learning. He texts me the strings and fingering of chords and the strumming pattern after he leaves so I have reference notes for my homework. Best of all: he does not pressure me at all but I feel encouraged to sing when I want! Nothing could be better. He's exactly the teacher I need, and he's got a great voice!
Prior to dennis, i had never taken guitar lessons. Always tried to teach myself. I struggled since i had no structure, i would consistantly get lost, which would make me put the guitar down due to frustration. Deciding to hire dennis was a break thru for me, and honestly wish i would have looked into it much sooner. Not only has my skills progressed, which they due weekly at a much faster rate then when i was trying to learn on my own, but my confidence and motivatation has increased greatly. I look forward to meeting with dennis each week and building off of what he taught me the previous week. The amount of patience dennis has is great, and the way he explains different things so that i understand is awsome. Would definetly recommend dennis to anyone, whether they have just purchased their first guitar, or they have tried numerous times to teach themselves, or even if you have alot of the basics down, but looking to take your knowledge and playing to the next level.
I contacted Warren several months ago about having a special circumstance with timing as I was coming to visit family members in the Dallas area. I needed to have as many lessons as possible over a 1 month period that I could handle before returning to another state and city where good guitar teachers are few and far in-between. I had 10 years of piano as a child and young teen, and only three guitar lessons as a teen. I had no idea how to really apply piano theory to the guitar, and was at a point I wanted to do more only having about 95% efficiency in basic chords. After a month of Warren working my fingers off I actually have a much better understanding of where I need to continue to go in order to reach a higher level in my playing! I feel that his knowledge and ability to explain things has made that possible. Whenever I didnât understand, I never had a concern about asking him to re-explain, and he never acted as if that was any imposition. I would recommend Warren to anyone that was looking for someone to give them a solid base in guitar theory and application. I will be back for more help anytime I am able to make my way back to Dallas, hopefully building on the steps he has shown me in between. Warren is a good solid teacher and an all around really nice person. KC Hernandez
Both of my boys love Kyle as their music teacher. My boys are beginners and I really want to find a male teacher for them. Mr kyle is very patient and encouraging for them. Class was well managed so that each boy will have an individual time based on their learning speed. They also talked about basketball and stuff like "guy friends". My boys cannot wait to see him for each session. I am very happy.

If your looking to maximize your potential playing guitar, Jon Chorba is the man to see!
I've been taking lessons with Michael for a little over a month now, and he's been great. I can't speak to how the lessons work for beginners, but I've played guitar for about 15 years, and am a pretty good rhythm player wanting to be a really good lead player. He's had great exercises for me to work on, and I'm already showing improvement. He has a good mix of exercises and tough practicing with learning tunes to put the theory into practice.
Richard was great! He will evaluate you on an individual basis to see how much you know, what you're looking for , etc. I highly recommend him from beginners to those who have a general knowledge of the piano and music in general.
I enjoyed my lessons with Marc Adams so much. He was very attentive and patient, making sure I had a skill down before moving on to the next, so I never felt nervous or rushed. His sense of humor and obvious passion for guitar made the lessons fun, and I felt his commitment to my progress. He was always ready and waiting when I arrived, and didn't let anything distract him from the lesson. I am grateful to have had the chance to work with him.
I have been taking adult beginner's piano lessons from Dr Tolosa for the last 6 months. He is an excellent instructor, having the patience of Job and always optimistic and encouraging (which is what is needed for someone like me who likes to do things right the first time and piano is something that, unless you're a prodigy, you are not going to get it right the first time...or the second time...or the third time...).
We love Zach He's on time, professional and extremely knowledgeable. Would highly recommend him to beginners or advanced guitar students
An Outstanding Music Instructor, Patient, Innovative and dedicated. The violin Lesson's had both structure and Long term Goals, as well as attributes to Music Theory and Violin Proficiency.
Dr. Bob Lawrence is an outstanding musician and teacher of music. I have been studing piano with Bob for two years. He is very good at teaching the technical aspects of playing the piano, but more importantly he teaches the theory behind what you are doing so you have a complete understanding of what you're learning and why you were learning it. I would highly recommend Dr. Bob Lawrence and the Dallas School of Music for anyone that wants to learn music whether they are a beginner or advanced.
Ken has been a great guitar teacher for me and my son. Me as a beginner and my son as a moderately advanced player. Ken understands how to communicate and teach at whatever level a student is playing. He gives fun and challenging practice assignments and does not give discouraging lectures. If a student feels discouraged, Ken has fun confidence building exercises and videos to help.
Senior Process Engineer at Finisar Corp I have been a guitar student of Mr. Mengers for 13+ years and I can tell you this guy is amazing and great at what he does. He is very organized, but will tailor your guitar class to your specific needs. I was an absolute beginner with no previous musical experience in 1998 when I started taking private lessons, but I knew what I wanted from the class before I started lessons, and Chris has helped me achieve that. He can teach you how to play music from any genre (jazz, pop, rock, Christian, etc.).
