I call my lessons with Marvin “Guitar Therapy” because I always leave not only feeling better about music, but also life. Marvin is a master teacher of both music and lifeMar 8, 2020

I have 2 daughters that take guitar lessons from Marvin and I feel lucky to have found him. Not only do they learn and consistently improve, but they both love him and enjoy the lessons. He is great with both my older daughter who is more advanced and my younger one who is more of a beginner. Our schedules are crazy and sometimes need to miss lessons and he's always willing to set up make-up lessons. Marvin is friendly, professional, and is definitely worth the money spent! He has a great little studio that we have used to record some music and he did a fantastic job. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone at any age and at any level.Mar 6, 2020

My son loves taking the guitar. Marvin teaches him good technique while encouraging my son to play and learn songs that he is excited about. He instills a love of guitar and music in his students. He is professional and communicates well with us. I highly recommend Marvin Payne.Mar 6, 2020

Marvin is a great teacher!! My 10 year old was taking lessons somewhere else and ended up losing interest in learning. A few months later we found Marvin and my son absolutely loves taking lessons from him. According to him (my son) “everything about Marvin is awesome!”. He comes home excited to practice and learn new songs. Marvin’s teaching technique is very affective. The way he teaches allows students to come home after each lesson feeling like they can actually make music instead of just learning chords.Mar 6, 2020

Only one lesson so it is rather hard to judge. He is willing to work with my abilities and I like his approach to teaching.Aug 4, 2019Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I typically have students pay by the month, $140 at the first of the month, with the idea that we’ll average four lessons a month. If a month has five Mondays and your lessons are on Mondays, it’s still $140. If Christmas falls on a Monday, it’s still $140. If that gets out of balance one way or another, we adjust. When necessary and possible, we try to fit in makeup lessons.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?I have a fairly standard curriculum for beginning students, working in songs you choose after just a few weeks. With students who already play some, the challenge is to work together to identify gaps in your understanding and problems in your technique, and customize solutions.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I’ve played for 61 years, professionally for 49.
