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.
I took Guitar lessons from Michael for a period of 2 months. Michael is a truly exceptional Guitar instructor and he helped me make a lot of progress. Before I started taking lessons from Michael, I had joined a group Guitar class and I knew the basic chords and I could play some easy songs. In my 1st lesson with Michael, he noticed that my picking hand movement was inefficient and he advised me the correct technique. He gave me several other technique improvement suggestions, which made me sound better and get less tired. In every lesson, he was very patient & professional with me as I learned to build muscle memory. We always started the lesson on time and we never missed a lesson. Michael is an extremely talented Guitar player himself and he plays really good Guitar. Whenever I heard him play, I got super motivated to go back home & practice to try and sound at least 10% like him. I made a lot of progress taking 1-1 lessons from Michael, more than I would have made joining some group class. I learnt how to confidently play the chords for 'Hotel California', 'Simple Man' and other songs. I really enjoyed my Guitar lessons with Michael and I am grateful to Michael for helping me re-discover my lover for my Guitar.
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.
Only had a few lessons, but going great so far.
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!
My son loves his piano lessons!
Marc is a great instructor! I hired him for my teenage son who recently became interested in playing the guitar. Marc knows how to interact with beginners and he patiently goes back over something if necessary. He stays focused on teaching and doesn't let anything distract him during the lesson. He gives my son "homework" after every lesson, which seems to help reinforce what he just learned. My son is always excited to go to his guitar lesson with Marc! Overall, I would definitely recommend Marc to anyone wanting to start/continue learning guitar. Thanks again Marc!
I am an adult student and have taken guitar lessons on and off with various guitar teachers for the past 12 years. I have been working with Mark for the past year. I have learned more in 1 year with Mark than I have over the past 5 years with other instructors. Mark pushes you to learn (in a friendly way) all aspects of music (theory, technique, ear training, etc). His lessons make you think. I also appreciate that Mark tailors my lessons to my specific personality type and challenges me to get better at each lesson.
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)
We love Zach He's on time, professional and extremely knowledgeable. Would highly recommend him to beginners or advanced guitar students
I really enjoy bringing my daughter here for lessons. Aram is a wonderful teacher!!
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!!
My granddaughter, Barbara started her first piano lesson two weeks ago and simply loves it. The owner, Heather is extremely nice, patient and professional. I am expecting great results from this wonder company.
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.
Lane is a great teacher. He moves at your pace as he trains you to be a better musician. He takes time to hear your struggles and takes more time helping you over come them. He genuinely cares about your progress as a student and will do whatever it takes to help you succeed. He is the definition of "going above and beyond."
He has a lot of patience. I’m embarking on something completely out of my element and he is making it easy for me to learn
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!
