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.

I started taking guitar lessons with Curt about a year ago. I had no previous music lessons whatsoever and felt it may be a little late in life to learn to play. Curt is very patient with beginners, like myself. I was nervous at my first lesson. Curt was able to break the music and chords down to a level for me to understand. He made me feel very comfortable and I appreciate the time he's taken to help me learn to play the guitar, which is a lifelong dream. I have highly recommended Curt to several friends.

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.

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!

    I try to give people the best experience possible by making things as simple as possible.

    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.


    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 am a Juilliard trained musician with years of teaching experience. I love working with kids or adults to help them reach their musical goals, in any style.


    Hello. My name is Michael Ripani. I am 22 years old and just received my AS. I'm in a band and write most of our songs. I give guitar and bass lessons as well as music composition. I can teach all ages and willing to drive to your location.


    I offer beginner and intermediate guitar and bass lessons, including electric or acoustic guitar. Have you always wanted to learn to play the guitar? Well, now is the time!

    I have a solid education and years of experience in performing contemporary music. Whatever your level, I am sure we can develop a plan to meet your musical goals!


    I am a guitar and bass instructor in the Hampton Roads area. I have 3 years of experience in teaching lessons in classical, rock/pop, and jazz guitar, both electric and upright bass, and music theory and reading.


    No nonsense/ego lessons. The end goal is to get the student self sufficient at their own rate. I'm not here to drain you of your hard earned money.
