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 starting taking guitar lessons with Michael last summer. I have learned so much! Michael is one of the most talented, knowledgable, creative, and artistic musicians I have ever met. As an instructor, Michael is patient and knows how to deliver lessons effectively even to a beginner like me:). I look forward to every lesson with Michael!
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.
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!
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.
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.
My son has been taking guitar lessons with Chris for over six years, starting when our son was only 7 years old. Chris is extremely patient, and has guided our son's musical development to a point where he can pick up a song and work his way through it, and simply play for his own enjoyment - and ours! Thanks, Chris, for making his lessons fun while giving him a solid technical musical base. He is using the skills he's learning from you in both his choir activities and the exploration of other musical instruments.
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.
Travis worked with me on the recording of two albums as a session guitarist. His work employed technicalities that helped shape the future of my band's work. These albums have secured an 8 week tour, and my playing as an experienced guitarist has been influenced by Travis' input. If I could, I would practice with Travis regularly.
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!
