Vaughn is an awesome teacher! My son loves him and looks forward to his weekly lesson. He is very flexible and works with your schedule if something comes up. He will do make ups if needed and he's very patient and a great teacher!!! If you're considering guitar lessons, you'll be very pleased with Vaughn!

I've had my first 4 guitar lessons with Vaughn, and look forward to continuing our lessons. He has a knack for making music theory feel less daunting, and more memorable/functional knowledge. I've already noticed an improvement in my guitar playing.

He definitely has a talent to teach. He is young bald and if you think about guitar lessons but hesitated to start , Vaughn will give you motivation ))

Despite a somewhat disappointing first free lesson - the instructor didn't realize I was coming and was underprepared - Skiles went out of his way to make up for it. He sent me a personalized message apologizing for the miscommunication and offered to give me another free lesson. I decided to give it another chance, and boy was it worth it. Skiles spent an entire hour teaching me fundamentals and sent me off with a bunch of practice exercises to help improve my finger coordination, strumming, and sense of tempo. I highly recommend taking lessons with him if you're looking to bring your guitar skills to the next level!

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.

I went in basically knowing nothing about playing guitar or reading music. Within about a year of going to Giancarlo for vocal and guitar lessons, I had already formed my own band, had about 4 hours worth of cover songs, and had written a few of my own songs and was getting ready to go play live (before I moved states). He is a great teacher and really knows so much about music and playing. One of the biggest things he emphasizes, which goes without saying, is PRACTICE, PRACTICE, PRACTICE!! I would recommend him to anybody!

Giancarlo is an excellent teacher. I am 34 years old with no musical experience and started taking guitar lessons with him at the beginning of the year. He is a good teacher, knowledgeable and patient as I started from 0. I would highly recommend him.

We found Amy through a mutual friend and were so grateful to find her! My son started guitar lessons with Amy in 6th grade and took lessons for about 2years. He went on to play jazz guitar at HSPVA. We credit Amy for giving him that first guitar foundation he needed. Amy has a great talent to match the student with musical interests so that playing was fun, never a chore. She fostered collaboration among her students, giving my son his first chance at playing in a "rock band". Her recitals are fun and more like talent shows; with vocals, piano, guitar, and student bands. Enjoy and learn!

Both of my daughters have taken piano and guitar lessons since they were 5 and really enjoyed it and have made a lot of progress. I have also taken piano lessons and have learned a lot. The lessons are both fun and educational. My girls have also done well in local and state piano competitions.

My daughter has taken piano lessons from Amy for ~2 years. Amy is patient, kind and flexible with lesson scheduling. We really appreciates how she individualizes the lessons so my daughter is playing music that interests her. I would definitely recommend Amy!

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.

Jeff has been giving my 3 kids music lessons for the last 5 years. My 18 year old became an accomplished drummer under Jeff's instruction. Because of his varied talents, Jeff has been able to accommodate my 13 year old's wandering interests.(so far we've covered the bass, guitar and drums ;-) 0 My daughter, who is 9 has been taking lessons from Jeff since she was 6 and I'm always amazed by what she plays at home. Jeff is great with kids and adults alike and I would highly recommend him to anyone with a desire to learn an instrument!

Jeff is a great instructor and is very patient!! Which is exactly what I needed! He knows his music and he takes his time teaching you the basics that you need for a good solid music foundation. I did not just want to learn to "play" the bass guitar, I wanted to understand the instrument and the music. Jeff is teaching me just that!! Thanks Jeff for being such an awesome person and teacher!!!

My first lesson with ASL was good. The instructor taught me some simple chord progressions. In the beginning, it seemed like the pace was too fast for me but when I asked more questions he broke it down for me to get it. I look forward to learning more techniques to play by ear.

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.

As a result I have progressed rapidly in a short time. I recommend James with out reservation for any prospective adult student

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.

After not picking up a guitar in more than 40 years, I decided that I wanted to play again. After familiarizing myself with my guitar for the past two years, I got to the point that I realized that I needed help. Ron is exactly what I needed. He assessed my current ability and tailored his lesson plans for me. I didn't think that I would be learning to read notes at the age of 63, but I'm on my way. I highly recommend Ron. Oh ..... he can even relate to classic country music (my favorite).

Simply amazing. My sister and I have been taking piano lessons with the Conservatory since they first opened up, and we have come so far. The instructors are so dedicated, Dr. Guevara and his wife, Berta, are amazing people and are very passionate about helping us learn, and they have a wonderful location, too. They have a recital hall overlooking the lake, are right next to the library and directly across from La Centerra, which is an outdoor shopping center. Whether you are experienced or a beginner, THIS is the place to be!

My kids have been taking piano lessons at the conservatory for the past 5 years. Dr. Guevara and his team of talented teachers are amazing. They have created a love for music and musical instruments for my kids. My son will be in Jr. high next year and his decision to take up orchestra as an elective was so spontaneous that he did not think twice. Thank you so much. You all are awesome.

I have musical ministries. I feel as if I have been gifted in many areas of music. My mission is to use those gifts in both theological and secular forms. My services vary in a range, from audio engineering to recording arts, music lessons, musical production, and above all of these, I am a musician myself. I take part in many different bands and perform vocals, drums/percussion, guitar, and bass.

  • Sugar Land, TX

About

The guitar is a popular musical instrument classified as a string instrument with anywhere from 4 to 18 strings, usually having 6. The sound is projected either acoustically or through electrical amplification (for an acoustic guitar or an electric guitar, respectively). It is typically played by strumming or plucking the strings with the right hand while fretting (or pressing against the frets) the strings with the fingers of the left hand. The guitar is a type of chordophone, traditionally constructed from wood and strung with either gut, nylon or steel strings and distinguished from other chordophones by its construction and tuning. The modern guitar was preceded by the gittern, the vihuela, the four-course Renaissance guitar, and the five-course baroque guitar, all of which contributed to the development of the modern six-string instrument
