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.
Our daughter has been taking lessons from Michael for almost 2 years. She is 12 years old and will be playing Wish You Were Here by Pink Floyd at my husbands medical school graduation party on June 2nd 2017 on her electric guitar thanks to Micheal being able to get her to this point in her lessons. We are amazed at her progress and happy with Micheal's teaching style where he teaches her how to play the guitar well with proper technique. We will be sad moving this summer away from Dallas and losing Michael as her teacher. But some other lucky student will get our spot.
I highly recommend Zera Music Company! My son loves his piano lessons and has made great progress in a short amount of time. Kyle is a great teacher!
My son loves his piano lessons!
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 acoustic guitar lessons on a weekly basis from Mark for several years. As a working student in my twenties, Mark has successfully transitioned the style and structure of my lessons to my practice schedule. As my schedule has shifted, I can honestly say that the more aspects of the program you are able to take part in, the faster you will achieve results. Overall, I am very pleased with my progress and growth and highly recommend Promethean Studios for music lessons in the Dallas area.
As Mr Chris Mauro says, " I play guitar because it is who I am". That is what caught my attention , and what attracted me to hire him. Chris came home every week to give guitar lessons to my 9 year old son. And he is very flexible and willing to accomodate you if ever you need to postpone a lesson. As a parent, I really appreciate it. Chris's passion for playing guitar reflects around him. He makes it fun, joyful for my son to learn guitar and he takes into account the type of music my son likes to listen to and to play. My son told me that Chris is very inspiring for him, and motivates and encourages him at every lessons. Thank you Chris. As a pianist myself, I believe that being able to play a music instrument is a gift in a life, And you made my son love playing guitar. Thank you! Marie D (Allen,tx)
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 took adult guitar lessons with Cathy. She is pure awesomeness! If you are looking for a talented, patient, and knowledgeable teacher, I would definitely recommend her.
Andrew taught my son age 10 guitar lessons. Andrew was very professional and came directly to our home. He is very knowledgeable and my son enjoyed learning from him. We definitely recommend him!!
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.
We hired Anthony to teach our 11 yr old daughter how to play the guitar. This is her first instrument. Anthony was a pure delight to work with, was always on time and sometimes even stayed a little over to make sure the lesson(s) were taught. He even helped us find a GOOD guitar for our daughter. Our daughter looked forward to each lesson with Anthony. He even broadened his lessons to include vocal coaching as well. I would highly recommend Anthony for anyone needing a music or vocal coach.
Chris is an exceptional musician. He is very gentle, has a sense of humor and allows me to move at my own pace. He is very well educated. He wil teach any kind of music, from classical to heavy metal. I have taken lessons for a long time and I am very satisfied. I highly recommend him.
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!
I use my skills as an educator to work with each student in a way that he/she can learn the best. This leads to faster learning, but also better young musicians!
I offer guitar lessons with a focus on theory, improvisation, creativity and writing. I can read sheet music and tabs and teach a variety of styles. You'll have Spanish tutoring from a nonnative (if you couldn't tell from my name) Spanish major at the University of North Texas. I have over four years of Spanish classroom experience.
