My daughter has been taking guitar lessons from Tod for several years. She has really enjoyed learning and exploring the music she is interested in. Tod has worked with her to learn to play the guitar with his expertise, but has listen to her regarding music she wants to learn to play. It has been awesome to see her love of music and ability to play, grow through her lessons. She really enjoys her time with Tod. We would highly recommend Tod. He is great teacher for young and old.

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.

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 off a tried and tested guitar teaching program. It is cost effective and focused towards successs. I also offer tuition and support via the UpGutarHill.com web site which means that students have access to much of my guitar knowledge, simply by walking UpGuitarHill with me. The best way to achieve success is not like the hare but rather like the tortoise in the Aesop's fable of the same name. The UpGutiarHill lessons are structured to get the job done and turn a newbie guitarist into a proficient nylon string guitarist with chord, strum and fingerpicking skills. At the top of UpGuitarHill you can then use these skills to move on to classical guitar or any other guitar area that you desire, having acquired the solid grounding from your UpGuitarHIll lessons.

About

Introduction My name is Greg. I am easy going and enthusiastic about sharing guitar knowledge with people eager to learn. I like to help people (especially those brand-new to the guitar) pick the right instrument, find what they enjoy about playing and guide them to any additional resources they might need as their playing progresses. My Teaching Background I have been playing the guitar for 15 years. I have been performing in bands for 10 years. I have played gigs in NYC, Baltimore, Philadelphia and Pittsburgh. I have been teaching for five years. I have also taught a high school communications class, which has helped me refine my teaching style. My Teaching Philosophy I like to be well-rounded in what my students learn but also like to make sure that they are picking up music theory. I believe it is important that my students understand how to read music and how chords and notes go together. In order to keep students interested in what they are playing, I also teach them songs of their choosing. I generally use Berklee School of Music's Modern Method for Guitar to teach from. It is very thorough and gives a terrific array of playing techniques that will translate into whatever style the student is interested in learning. Rates And Availability My rates are $15 for a half hour and $25 for an hour Lessons are at my studio; however, I am willing to travel to the student. Additional travel rates will be applied depending on distance and range from an additional $5 - $10.

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.

    I have very little schooling in music. Any thing I might have learned I have long forgotten. I'd like to learn the guitar to play music of mostly alternative 90's rock bands.
