My 6 year old son has been working with Mr. Nolan on on the electric guitar for a couple of months now. Mr Nolan is a very knowledgeable, caring, and patient teacher and my son is always excited to go to the lesson each week and even practice at home. I was hesitant to start my 6 year old on the guitar as I felt he might have been a bit young but I have been extremely happy with his progress. On a side note, Mr. Nolan is even letting me learn and play along using one of his guitars! This is my childhood dream so I am thrilled! If you are looking for guitar lessons, I would recommend Mr. Nolan with no hesitation.
I would like to send this letter in support of Tom Lopez and his music lessons through the Universal City Music Studio. My son Jacob Bissell has been a student of Tom's since his days in the band at Kitty Hawk Middle School. At that time, Thomas was teaching Jacob drum techniques to supplement the lessons at Kitty Hawk Middle School. Jacob ended up his Middle School tenure as an honored/awarded musician with a great foundation in music. Jacob moved on to Judson High School, and auditioned for the marching band. He won a spot on the Judson Drum Line as a bass player. He held this position for two years, even though he could have moved to "snare position" his second year, but stayed on bass to help the Director. Around this time, Jacob was starting guitar lessons with Mr. Lopez. After two years with the Varsity Judson High School Band, Drum Line, Jacob decided to take a break from the marching band. At this time, it was found that Youth Orchestras of San Antonio (YOSA) needed a percussionist. An audition was arrainged with YOSA, and Jacob was awarded a percussion seat with the Philharmonic Orchestra (YOSA's number one performing orchestra). He held this position with YOSA during his Junior and Senior years at Judson High School. His Senior year of high school, Jacob had to be in the music program to be eligible for YOSA, so he talked to the orchestra director at Judson HS. The Director needed a bass for the orchestra, so Jacob accepted the position. He started the semester in the Beginner Orchestra. With his excellent musicianship, he learned the instrument and was moved to the Honors Orchestra. He did receive honors for this position. All this time, Jacob had continued taking music lessons and having recitals with Thomas Lopez. Jacob had continuisly been a student of Tom's since middle school at Kitty Hawk. Now it was time to think of college. Jacob had thought that "Music Thearpy" was an area of study he wanted to pursue. Looking at the information from Texas colleges, only two in the state offered music therapy. One was in Houston, and the other was the University of the Incarnate Word, in San Antonio, Texas. After applying, and going through Music School auditions with the Director at Incarnate Word, he was awarded a Music School scholarship and an academic scholarship. With the substantial scholarship money, he accepted the spot on the Incarnate Word music school roster. I would like to congratulate Thomas Lopez for instilling in his student Jacob, the musicianship needed to advance to the level he has. He is active in the Incarnate Word Chorale, so he is learning about another instrument- his voice. Jacob is active in two bands- Disposable and 16 Psyche. As well as writing music, singing (fronting Disposable), he is currently teaching himself piano. I want to add links below to several of Jacob's performances. If the links get lost, you may find performances on YouTube by searching the names of the groups, and looking for "YOSA presents Carmina Burrana," where you'll see Jacob's senior slide on the screen behind the orchestra, at the beginning credits. While in YOSA, Jacob was with the first group to perform in the new Tobin Center, appearing twice about a month before Paul McCartney played the venue. Jacob has performed with nationally known artists while in the Youth Orchestras of San Antonio, and went on tour to Canada with the organization. Thanks again Thomas, for bringing out the best in your music students.
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.
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 ages 11 to 99. My students learn how to play because I teach them what they want to know. All the important stuff will come later, once they've developed a real love for music.

My name is Jacob Lewis. I teach beginner and intermediate guitar lessons, focusing on chords and finger dexterity, and allowing students to choose the songs and styles they want to learn.
Hey y'all, I'll be short here! I have played for over 12 years on both electric and acoustic covering most genres and techniques. If you are just starting out and want to do anything from campfire acoustic jams of cover songs to sing with friends, to creating your own melodies and collaborate with others, I can definitely get you there. Since I am left handed, learning from me is perfect for right handed players because it is like looking in the mirror while you play. I look forward to teaching you!

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.
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 bring energy and excitement to playing music, specifically on the guitar. Learning something new can be frustrating and difficult, but having a teacher who is excited and passionate can make things more palatable. I can help you learn with patience and tailor lessons specifically for you!
