We went to Tara for guitar lessons for my 11 year old daughter. Tara makes it fun, very knowledgeable and easy to learn with. She's super sweet and the kids just love her. She's a good example and a beautiful person.
Apart from being enthusiastic about music and skilled at guitar playing and teaching, Mary is also kind and supportive. I ask lots of questions about guitar playing and music theory. She is patient and is able to answer all of them in a clean and concise manner. She also shares with me information from Seattle Classic Guitar Society on performances and master classes of top guitarists from time to time. I would recommend Mary to every person who wants to learn guitar, especially classical guitar seriously.
I shopped several places before discovering Seattle Guitar Mentor. Awesome place to learn guitar! I've been taking lessons here since June 2016 and I'm having a blast! My son saw how much fun I was having with it and started taking lessons a couple months after me! Ryan is a great instructor/mentor and really cares about each student. A true professional with a real understanding of instruction techniques and music theory. I am learning so much and Ryan keeps it fun and interesting! Highly recommended.
We've been working with Ken since September for our 11 year old's electric guitar lessons. We've been pleased with Ken's professionalism, structure and teaching style. Our son has learned a great deal in a short time after being away from lessons for two years and enjoys his lessons a lot. Ken is a great guy to work with and the studio is a nice place for private lessons. We've had the opportunity to meet a few of his other students around my son's lesson times, and it's clear that Ken is able to teach and work with a wide variety of ages and levels. We give Ken our highest recommendation.
Jonny is an outstanding guitar instructor! As a beginner, I was looking for a teacher that could show me how to play the songs I like, but could also help me learn the specific techniques to play those songs. He provided all of that and more. He is laid back, very supportive, and does a great job of providing a clear path to success. He is awesome!
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!!
Skyler did a great job with teaching myself and my daughter guitar! We were both beginners and he was able to help us both learn and advance according to our individual pace (my daughter moved faster then I did ! ). Highly recommend Skyler regardless of your skill level.
My daughter and I decided to take guitar lessons together, we were fortunate that Neal was contacted on our behalf and he immediately made a connection with us both and our one hour lessons each week ensued. We progressed from acoustic to electric, from Albert King, Taylor Swift, ZZTop, to the Beatles what a great musical journey for my daughter for over three and a half years. Heck we even played Don't Stop Believin' in a recital together!!! Great times, great music teacher, real human being; I wholeheartedly recommend Neal to anyone desiring guitar lessons for any genre of music, and any age group! Andy T.
Wade Lance is not only an accomplished guitarist, but a compassionate and intelligent teacher that can make learning fun! In learning any instrument, the most important muscle is your heart! Wade has a heart that will inspire your's to be the best you can be. His lessons are well stuctured to teach you at an accelerated rate. As a beginner you'll be playing songs in a short time. As an intermediate, holes will be filled quickly. Advanced players will completely understand music theory and creativity will soar! Your time at Balance Studios is time well spent!
I am an adult, professional, working full time and raising two teenagers. I have been taking acoustic guitar lessons from David O'Suna for the last year. I have progressed from beginner, with some prior musical experience, to being able to play hundreds of songs. David has been low-key, encouraging and able to challenge me to build on my skills every week. His teaching style is very adaptable and his knowledge and interests are wide ranging. He has been an excellent resource.
David teaches me classical guitar. He is kind, encouraging, and patient. He gently instructs me on the importance of finger positioning and rhythm. David is well-grounded in musical theory and can discuss the history of musicology. Each lesson has been a positive and enlightening experience. Thanks to my teacher, I have rediscovered my love of classical guitar!
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 Jeffry as a 100% beginner on guitar. I've had experience with drums, but knew absolutely nothing about guitar, other than I knew I wanted to learn how to play. I bought Rocksmith for my XBox, and it was fun, but I didn't feel like I was getting it. The instant feedback of in-person lessons makes a big difference. Jeffry is an expert, and he's patient. I leave each week with plenty to practice, and I feel like I'm making progress. I'd definitely recommend him!
I received beginner guitar lessons from Justin. It was great! He taught me the basics and some great tricks to help me remember what I was learning each week. I felt like I improved really quickly with his instructions. I was impressed with how patient he was while he listened to me fumble through the chords!
Music teacher, woodwinds, guitar, keyboards, music theory, improvisation. First of all, Bob is one of THE most creative and energetic players in Seattle. His prowess on woodwinds, guitar, keyboards and other instruments is extraordinary! I have been studying music theory and improvisation from him for several years now. His instruction has literally taken me from beginner to a level of playing that far surpasses what I thought was possible. Not only is his instruction clear, intelligent and cogent, but he tailors his lessons for the individual at hand. He took the time to talk to me and see where I was musically.... He listened to me play and interacted with me and gave me confidence to move forward with ease... And it is this sense of confidence that I have achieved with Bob that has really made the difference for me. I highly recommend Mr. Antolin to anyone (beginner or seasoned pro)who is wanting to expand their knowledge of music, their instrument... to sharpen their chops and creative fire.
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.
David has taught my children, ages 13 and 16, piano for 3 years. Both of them started piano before they were 5 years old, but they are very different. My older son really enjoys classical and has recently been exploring jazz. My younger daughter is more of a dabbler. David has successfully kept their interest and enthusiasm for piano, and for music as a whole. For my son, he has focused a lot on technique and music theory. For my daughter, he has made lessons fun while still making sure that she learns the fundamentals that she doesnt enjoy as much (like scales). He was flexible enough to teach her the basics of guitar when she expressed an interest. Both children have blossomed under Davids tutelage. Perhaps more importantly, both continue lessons because they want to continue rather than parental pressure. Davids personable and gentle teaching style makes him an easy person for kids and adults to learn from; he is an excellent 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.
Keith is friendly, knowledgeable and demonstrates patience while teaching guitar to a 7 year old beginner. Our son is having fun learning to play and we like the convenience of having the lessons in our home.
I took lessons from Patrick for a few years, and his personal connection with me really made me fall in love with music. I was a total beginner and he took the time to make sure that I really *got* what he was teaching me and understood it fully. Whether it was modes, scales, or chords, he taught me in a way in which I could remember, and also showed me ways in which I could use them. He made sure I never got discouraged, and made sure I stuck with it no matter what happened. His passion, joy, patience, and knowledge is incredible, and he’ll be a great instructor for any level.
