I would like to highly recommend Steve Jolemore as a guitar instructor. I had the pleasure of sitting in on a lesson he gave to my daughter when she was first learning to play the guitar and I was so impressed with his knowledge, ability, and demeanor. His experience really shone through and he is a diligent and patient teacher who knows exactly how to read a student's level and capacity and teach from that vantage point. Steve has a vast knowledge of the guitar and of music and, in my estimation, he would be able to teach any age and any level in any genre. He is disciplined in the most positive way imaginable and he works to gently yet effectively instill that same discipline in his students. I can't imagine a student who wouldn't benefit from Steve's impeccable guidance and his intelligent approach to teaching. If you are at all interested in guitar lessons I urge you to choose Steve Jolemore. You will be very happy that you did.
I began my guitar lessons the first day of July. Chris is an outstanding teacher who gets you involved in the lesson, gives you patient instruction and timely feedback on your progress. I have taken many other lessons from other teachers and did not get the same results in weeks that I got with Chris on the first day.
Curt has been teaching my daughter since April 2012. First off, he is a great instructor, always patient and he had her playing right off the bat. She has progressively gotten better which has motivated her to practice even more, turning her into a pretty good young guitar player. From a parent's perspective, he is extremely helpful with advice and has been very easy to work with on scheduling. I would, and actually have recommended him to other parents. If you're considering guitar lessons, I would say definitely use Curt because he's a great instructor and the fact that he is also a veteran who served his/our country faithfully for many years. Support Veteran owned businesses!
This guy is very animated and lively! Loved watching him perform!not only does he play the guitar very well he is very entertaining to watch! He even took requests, so I asked him to play something and he knew it! Definitely someone you need to see!!
My daughter takes guitar lessons once a week from Rachel. Rachel offers a great atmosphere for enjoying music and learning to play the guitar. She makes it fun and uses alot of songs that are current. My daughter practices at home all the time and she talks about how much she loves taking lessons from Rachel! What more can a mom ask for? I highly recommend.
I was nervous about trying something I had never done before but Adam made me feel at ease from my first lesson. He's helped me so much and I can't believe how far I've come just after our 6 lessons. I really enjoy working with him and would recommend him highly to anyone looking to learn or get better at guitar. Thanks Adam!
Bob did a wonderful job at my daughters wedding and it was beautiful.

I've been playing guitar for over 7 years now including live performances and weddings. I am extremely versed in various styles of music including both acoustic and electric rock, blues, country, jazz, and finger picking styles and would be a great asset to any beginner or novice students. I also have a degree in education from Old Dominion University and work wonderfully with both younger and older students.
My method is fairly orthodox -- I teach what is needed for a student to actually be able to play songs in just a few weeks. While we will learn the basic chord shapes and scales, I will also teach alternative tuning, many of which have much simpler chord shaping, enabling some popular songs to be learned even by the beginner.
