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.
Michelle seems very dedicated, organized and truly enjoys teaching piano. It's not just a job for her, which is different from our last experience at piano lessons. My daughter and I are happy with our experience so far.
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!
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.
Our daughter has taken bass guitar lessons from Joel for the last 2 years. She has improved greatly under his direction. He is very encouraging and positive, but at the same time gives great corrections for improvement. Would definitely recommend him.
My son loves his piano lessons!
We love Zach He's on time, professional and extremely knowledgeable. Would highly recommend him to beginners or advanced guitar students
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.
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.
Andra is a dear friend of mine. She is incredibly talented, easy to relate to, and she has a wonderful presence about her. She has helped me with learning how to better express myself through music and has taught me a thing or two on the bass guitar. I would highly recommend her as a teacher!
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.
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 play the guitar for weddings, parties, and other functions. I teach private guitar lessons, and I teach classes in kundalini yoga and Simran meditation.
We provide guitar lessons for beginners. We will teach all fundamentals such as major/minor scales, pentatonic scales and modal variations. We provide basic music theory as well. We charge $20 an hour.
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 have over 25 years experience teaching and performing. I use a series of proven books that act as a guide and enable the student to learn at his or her own pace. Also, because I offer live online guitar lessons, this gives the student a lot of options and presents the element of convienence. I do have students that come to my location, but it's all about having choices.
I'm very patient in my teaching and I have such a great passion for the guitar that I love showing other people why it's the best instrument in the world
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.
