I was a complete beginner to guitar and Steve had been extremely patient with me in teaching the basics. I found his tips and tricks really helpful to pick up the chords. I really like how he used to converse about the history of music and it's origin. Would definitely recommend him.

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.

My 16 yr. old son has been taking guitar lessons with Mr. Brady for around 6 months and we plan on continuing. One thing that my son really appreciates about Mr. Brady, is that he is open to using music that the student is interested in learning and then uses those songs to teach all of the technical aspects and musicality. He's always prepared for lessons and engaging in his instruction. Highly recommend!

Nate immediatlely replied to my request for guitar lessons, and went beyond what I would have expected by offering to go guitar shopping with me. He is extremely talented, and he explains things in a way that is easy to understand. He was also very flexible in setting up a lesson time that worked with my schedule.

Adam has been amazing working with my son! He's extremely patient and makes sure that my son gets so much more out of his lessons other than just learning to play. He's a very talented player himself and my son loves how cool Adam is! Highly recommend him!

About

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.

About

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.

    I've played the piano for 10 years, and violin for 5. I'm hoping to be able to sing and play guitar eventually. My biggest issue is trying to play bar chords. Either my fingers are too short (and thus I should downsize from my full-size guitar), or I just need to practice reaching.
