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!
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.
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!!
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.
Jacob is fantastic with beginners, especially kids. Instead of focusing on scales and theory, he starts them out playing actual songs they want to play, and builds lessons from there. Hes very chill and encouraging and makes the lessons and practice fun and engaging. I would HIGHLY recommend him to anyone looking at lessons for their kids or themselves! Hes a fantastic teacher!
David is a very knowledgeable musician and teacher. I have had lessons from him in both music theory and a band setting. As a band leader he is outstanding and has helped me to understand the theory behind improv soloing. In the study of music theory he is a vault of knowledge and has broken things down to the smallest part so that beginners like me can start learning and USING the info in practice. The book he wrote is well laid out and very useful both in organization of theory and tools for practice on saxophone.
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.
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.
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.
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.
Matt really knows his stuff! He made learning guitar easy and fun. And it was a lot easier that I thought it was going to be! Thx!
He's real cool and knows how to teach
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 hired David to help me learn guitar. I've had others try to help me, but music never really "clicked" for me. He was very patient with me and helped me learn the fundamentals. For the first time I no longer feel lost and it's all thanks to David!
I teach how to shred on guitar and classic music. I've been playing the guitar for about nine years, and I became a master. I know how to play metal, and I also know classical music.
I teach acoustic and electric guitar from beginner to advanced levels to players of a variety of styles. I specialize in blues, rock, and metal but am well versed in other genres and styles. I like to incorporate music theory in my lessons and am willing to go at your pace. Music is a fun and enriching hobby, and I do my best to ensure that my students feel comfortable and have fun during their lessons!
I have been a working musician for many years. I have played from coast to coast, in venues as small as house parties and as big as the House of Blues. Music is a beautiful way to connect and impact those who are around us!
Our lesson plans allow the student to easily grasp techniques and concepts that are necessary for playing guitar in a fun and encouraging evironment.
