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.

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.

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.

My daughter has been taking guitar lessons from Curt Brady since September. He came highly recommended from a friend whose son had taken lessons with Curt for years. My daughter likes working with him because he is patient with her and, as she says, does not "get all riled up". We feel that Curt is nurturing her musical abilities in a very positive way. We really appreciate that he is willing to come to our home for lessons; on top of that, he is very considerate in that he always calls if he gets stuck in traffic! I would definitely recommend Curt if you are considering taking guitar lessons.

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.
