Before starting guitar lessons, I did a thorough review and research of all the guitar instructors in the area. By far John is the best instructor out there. John is a top-notch teacher and is very energetic and passionate about the guitar and loves teaching this instrument to others. He is very well organized and systematic in his teaching approach. John's style of teaching enables students to improve their technique very quickly and to learn a wide variety of guitar theory. He is very approachable and friendly, while also bringing a very professional approach that he has honed over many years of teaching guitar. John is also very responsive via e-mail or phone. He takes the time to learn about each individual student. He is a great teacher both for adults or kids. John is obviously a very talented guitarist himself, and he teaches in a way that is easy to learn from. He is very friendly and encourages a very low pressure learning experience. His structured classes allow the student to obtain constant progress and to see a clear line of what specifically is needed to improve upon. He takes a professional yet fun approach to his lessons. John tailors each student’s learning in a way specific to each one, and his vast knowledge of multiple styles of teaching books and learning aids is fitted to each student as needed. It is definitely not a one lesson fits all approach for him. He will gauge you through your level of expertise and assess your short and long term goals, whether as a beginner or as an advanced player. John then creates a custom lesson plan for each student. I thoroughly enjoy every lesson and see definite and concrete results each week both in my playing ability and in my overall understanding of music. One of my goals, in addition to increasing my performance level, was to actually learn how to read the music. In less than a month, through John’s instruction and teaching, I was on my way to a firm understanding not only in my ability to read music but to play sight reading, something that once existed only as a dream. With John’s help my confidence in playing is at an all-time high, and I without question see myself becoming an excellent guitar player in time with his help. I strongly recommend John as an instructor to anyone at any level interested in becoming a great guitar player and learning more about guitar music theory. - RJW

Currently, I'm the Manager of Tye's awesome band, Fifty Dollar Dynasty. Tye's guitar style is simply amazing! His band won the 2013 Texas Motor Speedway, Fast Track To Fame Contest and they played live in the Big D NYE show (think 40 thousand live fans and broadcast live on TV into 12 states and 70 markets). Taking guitar lessons from someone who knows how to play is cool. But taking guitar lessons from a future rock star is...priceless. Tye is low key and has not let the success go to his head. He's focused on helping others learn the craft which is an unusual trait for an up and coming rock star!

My daughter has been taking lessons from Mr. Olson for about two months now. She has made amazing progress so far, from nothing to playing chords and a few songs. Mr. Olson is able to redirect and focus my 7 year old to keep her on task and learning the lesson of the week. He certainly has the patience to teach young children. His lessons are tailored to each student to keep them progressing. As with any child, my daughter was very enthusiastic when she asked to learn guitar, but that interest waned after the first few weeks after she discovered that this takes real work to learn. Mr. Olson has managed to keep her progressing and brought back her interest in continuing her lessons. His style is encouraging and corrective without being negative, always praising the students efforts. He also has an amazingly advanced knowledge and understanding of teaching theory for an instructor only in his early 20's, much better grounding in education fundamentals than many seasoned and highly degreed teachers I know. His level of understanding of how to teach shows in the progress my daughter has made and respect she has for Mr. Olson. He is also a very competent and accomplished guitar player in his own right. For anyone looking to learn guitar I highly recommend you check out Daniel Olson, I could not recommend him highly enough.

Beau is an exceptional guitar instructor. He was quick to respond to any questions I had and arrived on time to my lesson. I don't have much experience playing guitar, but I feel we covered a lot of ground during the first lesson. He helped boost my confidence in playing and motivated me to practice during the time between lessons. His pricing was very reasonable and he was able to accommodate to my schedule and location. I look forward to more lessons to come and would highly recommend Beau.

I've taken guitar lessons before with a couple of different instructors. I can honestly say that I learned quicker and more enjoyable with Gustavo! He has an amazing gift for music. I would recommend him to anyone wanting to learn to play.

I teach beginner and intermediate guitar to kids and adults out of my home. I charge $20 an hour, but if you just want to do half an hour for $10, that's fine too. I am available most of the day on Wednesdays and Saturdays and early evening the rest of the week.

I have a busy career and most of my free time during the week goes to strumming my guitar, so why don't I teach someone else? It's a passion.

I specialize in teaching beginner/intermediate guitar players. I have 12 years of experience. I can provide a child guitar if your child doesn't have one yet. All of my students have been successful as long as they practice for the 30-45 minutes I recommend a day. I can travel to you and have a flexible schedule. I have a 3-year-old son who plays ukulele and will start guitar as soon as he's big enough. I would be happy to help your child start on their music career.
