Scott is a very informed, experienced, and personable guitar instructor. He has a great ear, and and even better ability to pick out your weaknesses and turn them into strengths. I went into my lessons with Scott with a few years of guitar playing experience, but not much knowledge of music theory or even knowing scales. He did a great job of creating lessons and catering to what I wanted to learn. I would definitely recommend him to anyone who wants to learn more about guitar, from beginners to advanced! Thanks Scott!
I've had about 6 lessons with Mary on guitar and have thoroughly enjoyed them. She has a great eye for details in technique thats very important in a guitar teacher to keep you on track. I also like the way she builds the skills on top of each other while not trying to do this be repeating the same song until perfect. This is an excellent way to keep the student engaged while building the technique that will be needed. I also like that she is not locked in to a particular dogma. For example, I'm a pretty large person and we needed to adjust my posture from the standard classical guitar posture. She was able to articulate the general principles that one wants to achieve in their posture and use those principles to help me find a posture that works for my body type. In summary. I would gladly recommend Mary to friends wanting to learn classical guitar.
Started guitar lessons a couple of months ago and couldn't be happier. I was self taught and played by ear. Didn't feel I had time for lessons. But, I was missing a lot of the fundamentals. The lessons have started to fill in the gaps and I'm learning a lot faster than before. I wish I started these lessons a couple of years ago. And way too easy taking these lessons at my place. Highly recommended!
Ed is talent and wonderful instructor. My son enjoys and looks forward to his guitar lessons with Ed. It's been easy to schedule lessons and Ed's responsiveness to all emails is quick and commendable.
Ken is nice and responded very fast to my questions, I purchased guitar lessons for my son birthday, and he was very professional about it.
Taking guitar lessons with Matt was a great experience. He had extraordinary patience with me as I slowly learned, and had great advice to encourage me through the process. Matt recognized when I wasnt grasping a concept, and used creative strategies to help me along. He is a very talented guitar player, and just as great of a teacher. I would highly recommend him.
Started taking singing lessons with Maddy as a complete beginner. She's been so kind, patient, and supportive and is wonderful about explaining how the voice works. I highly recommend her!!
Sami is a wonderful guitar player and teach, as well as songwriter and vocalist. He takes a great interest in his students and helps to motivate them to their full potential. He's a fantastic musician and performer and can bring that experience to his students to help them grow in their performance abilities. He's a teacher who can work with beginners to get them up and playing songs they enjoy quickly, or work with accomplished players to improve their skills. A very caring teacher / mentor for his students.
I had one 1-hour guitar lesson with Curt and it was a good experience. He clearly knows his stuff. He listened well and took the time to get a sense of where I'm at. After playing some he gave me some exercises that I think will be very helpful. I will be going back for more lessons.
Great first lesson as a new guitar player. Edgar is professional and talented. I'd definitely recommend working with him if you're in the market for a guitar teacher.
Liam Leo guitar on a regular basis for nearly two years and we couldn’t have been happier with his work. His skill as a musician was clear from the start. But equally impressive were his intangible skills. He was a great communicator with our son— a teacher who took learning seriously but also made learning fun. Leo always looked forward to his lessons, which to us was as good an indication as any of the quality of Liam’s work. But beyond that, Leo really professed as a musician under Liam’s guidance, learning elements of theory and fundamentals of technique but also learning to play a lot of really cool songs. Leo found Liam inspiring , so much so that Leo wound applying to the same arts school that Liam attended. He’s a sixth grader there now, happily building on the musical foundation that Liam helped lay for him.
Ben's been great at getting me over my trepidation with learning guitar. After my fourth lesson I've been able to pick up the basics. He's patient, helpful, good humored, and inspires me to keep going. Thanks, Ben.
Daniel has been my student for several years, the last two as a guitar major at Cornish College of the Arts. He is an accomplished classical guitarist with a strong rock and blues background. His comments and helpful criticisms in studio class lead me to believe he would be an excellent guitar teacher.
My son, Reece, has been taking guitar lessons from Tony for over a year and a half. Reece thinks that Tony is kind and encouraging. He introduces my son to many different types of music. Tony shows him a variety of styles of playing guitar. He stretches my son and expects great things out of him. He is a versatile teacher, he has worked with my son on electric, acoustic, and classical guitar. As a parent I appreciate that Tony is a great communicator. If my son is sick or if we have to be out of town, he's quick to respond and schedule make up lessons. Reece said, "Tony is very knowledgable and is able to answer any questions that I might have. If he doesn't know the answer, which rarely happens, he comes back the next week having full knowledge of anything regarding that topic." Overall our experience with Tony has been fantastic. I highly recommend him as a music teacher.
I came to Nathaniel mid-summer 2013 to begin beginner lessons after careful consideration of his skills. He is so accomplished! After adjustments to find the correct guitar (left handed) we finally got down to brass tacks and I have improved so much under his direction. Nathaniel is so patient and always has the right answer when a question is asked. Nathaniel likes putting some humor in with his instruction technique which helps to relax and enjoy the session. Anyone who is looking for a spectacular instructor, Nathaniel is your choice.
I am pleasantly surprised that I found such a good teacher, Ken Jacobsen, who even lives close to me. I have complete confidence in his ability to take my classical guitar training to the next level.
Thomas is a great guy. For me, the number one quality I look for in a colleague or partner is that they are someone that I would want to be my friend. Call me crazy, but I prefer to work with friends even though many might choose otherwise. To me this means working with people I trust, people I enjoy spending time with, and people that I know will work hard. All of these things are true of Thomas. Thomas is also of course a skilled musician that isn’t just a good guitar player and a teacher, but he loves music and he loves people, two essential components for being a great music teacher and a faculty member at TIA. Call us and book your lessons or classes with Thomas! Start having fun and making music.
Love this school! It's been great experience for both of my kids. We've been taking piano and guitar lessons for last 4 years
I've had the distinct pleasure of both, playing music with and learning from Eric. Eric's kind, patient, and flexible manner make him a wonderful teacher, as well as, an asset as a bandmate. One of his many great talents is that he can take his knowledge of the fundamentals of learning music, and make the experience fun and motivating. He performs regularly around the greater Puget Sound area, check him out!
