I hired Tod for guitar instruction. He's very competent and enthusiastic about music theory, and he's making sure that I have the basics. I recommend him for acoustic/electric guitar lessons.

I'm going on week four of guitar lessons with Olivier, and the fact that he hasn't given up on me nor have I thrown in the towel, is a testament to his skill as a teacher. His ability to listen once to any song I choose and one break it down for me into its requisite chords in manageable pieces is not only impressive but inspiring, and makes my lessons tailored to my individual taste in music. He's patient, easy going, and very professional which is a great combination in a music teacher.

I really enjoyed and greatly benefitted from my singing lessons with Sarah. I used to find the bridges in my voice (transitioning from chest to head voice) made me feel less confident with songs that sat in an awkward range, but the exercises Sarah gave me really helped smooth out the sound across my whole range. Since she recorded every lesson I could hear the difference of how I sang the song before and after the exercises and the sound improved so much! If Sarah hadn't moved away, I would still be coming to her for lessons!

Responds quickly. My son loves video game music, and Edward is great in this area. For the first lesson, he gave my son a good overview of options.

Jordan provided guitar lessons for my son for 2.5 years. My child did not have any previous experience with a guitar or with music in general prior to his lessons. Under Jordan's guidance, my son has not only learned the basics, but he has learned to love music. My child can now play classical, jazz, and rock; he has even performed some Ozzy Osbourne for a talent show in front of over 150 people at school! My son has gained confidence in himself and his musical ability through his lessons. I am so glad that Jordan was able to work with my child!

I loved the way he presented music to me, I had been struggling for a long time with the guitar and he got me playing my favorite song in a month, and singing along too!! The class was fun and dynamic so I was never bored or uninterested. Thumbs up!

About

I began playing the tuba in the 7th grade, which taught me how to read music. Since the bass guitar and the tuba's music notation is exactly the same, I began playing bass in 1992. I played lead guitar for 22 years, prior to changing to bass. I'm 55 years old, and have over 40 years of experience playing in bands (since I was 14). For three semesters, I studied music at Va, State College (present Va. State University) while marching in the band. My services include a bass guitar and beginner's book available for the student, until they can purchase their own. I have a studio behind my home (used for band rehearsals), where the lessons will be given. Other items provided are bass amp, cable, guitar stand, and audio system for listening purposes.

About

I've been playing guitar for 5 years. I'm well-versed in several genres including rock, pop, folk, and my favorite, the blues. I am also well-versed in the fundamentals, chord structures, finger development and timing. I know a versatility of guitar techniques and can give one-on-one instruction to students. I can also instruct on things like proper guitar management. If the students like a particular artist or band, I am quick at picking up and figuring out how to play others' songs and can teach that to my students.
