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.
I contacted several competitors prior & they would take long to reply. Zera was not. They responded quickly, politely, & set things up very easily. No back & forth. They have a good interactive site. You can pay online. Very easy people to work with. As far as the lessons, my son is liking it, he looks forward to his lessons every week. I cant ask for more. He is learning bass guitar with Jordan.
First guitar lesson was fun and valuable. Looking forward to many more.
My son loves his piano lessons!
Zach taught me bass guitar for almost two years and it went extremely well. The lessons I received from him were fast paste whether it was jazz or funk the music I learned was new and awesome to me. We covered some very fundamental rules and jazz standards that helped take me to the next step. Seems like Zach knows a lot about what he's doing.
Carl Herod has been an exceptional music teacher to my two sons for the past four years. Beginning with piano lessons and expanding into percussion and guitar lessons, we spend an hour a week with Carl and he packs our time with quality learning. He brings knowledge and expertise to MANY aspects of music. The boys learn rudiments and technical theory, but also improvisation and ear training. His teaching style is laid back and relaxed. He responds equally well to my older "by the book" son and my second "more eccentric" son and brings out their love of learning with varied methods of instruction.I anticipate continuing our teacher/student relationship with Carl for the next five years and I am confident that my boys will have a life-long love of music in large part because of Carl.
I began taking guitar lessons from Kenneth when I was 14, and right away, I noticed his ability to mold the lesson into an experience that fit 𝘮𝘺 musical interests and what I wanted to learn. Whether I wanted to learn theory, practice a certain technique or rudiment, or just have fun learning a song, Kenneth could always adapt and make the lesson interesting and enriching. This is a quality that many music teachers lack, and it’s the aspect of his teaching that kept me enticed for so long. In addition to being a great teacher, Kenneth is a passionate music fan of many different genres, and through taking lessons with him, I was exposed to many new musical concepts that opened my eyes to the world of music I was yet to discover. Though I no longer take lessons, I can say for sure that my time with Kenneth has made me a much more skilled, receptive and well rounded musician, and I am very thankful for all the things I learned.
The Sound Foundation has been outstanding to us, especially my son. Norman has done everything possible to see that my son receives his guitar lessons. The Sound Foundation makes you feel at home. He is the most friendliest guy I have met and also, super understanding. My son has learned a lot from his instructor and has picked up some skills. Thank you The Sound Foundation!
Very professional. My son enjoyed his first guitar lesson!
Juan does private guitar lessons for my 10 year old son and I'm happy to say all is going very well! My son enjoys every lesson and he has improved from the beginning of the sessions.

As a self-taught guitarist then later having private lessons. I feel that anyone wanting to learn to play already enjoys playing the guitar even just starting out. When I started, I learned the songs I liked that I listened to. I think most of us feel this same way about learning to play guitar. It should be fun and fulfilling to us as we learn the guitar as well the music that we so love to hear. If I can do it, I believe anyone can. So I allow the student to choose what they want to learn.
