I've just started taking my first guitar lessons ever, about 3 months now, with Scott, I really like his way of teaching, he is very professional and knowledgeable, I would definitely recommend him to anybody that is either a beginner or advanced guitar player, looking forward to be able to play the blues and I'm pretty sure that with his help I'll be rocking the house soon. Play on!!

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.

We unfortunately only attended one of Bryan's drum lessons .(only because my four year old wouldn't practice). Bryan was great! He even had on Aladdin, upon us arriving which made my daughter extra comfortable. It was a great ice breaker for them to talk about. I would absolutely recommend Bryan to anyone needing drum lessons ages kids to adult.

Mary is teaching guitar to my 11 year old daughter. When we came to Mary my daughter had 4 years of choir experience but no musical instrument lessons. Mary is patient yet specific in her requests, my daughter is enjoying playing the classical guitar while learning much about technique. Mary is good at seeing my daughters learning style and using that to both their benefit. I would highly recommend her.

I always wanted to learn to play guitar, and tried several times to teach myself without success. The idea of taking guitar lessons was super intimidating to me, but I decided to give it a shot, and I'm so glad I did. Ryan is an amazing instructor. His passion for teaching is obvious, and I feel like I learned so much from him in a short amount of time. He addresses all the things any new player faces such as a lack of confidence and bad habits. Right away I felt comfortable and encouraged, and I looked forward to lessons every week. The lessons motivated me to want to practice and work through everything I was learning, and they were always fun. Ryan has a great sense of humor and a knack for using pizza metaphors to explain music theory :) I can't say enough great things about my experience, and I encourage anyone considering lessons with Ryan to definitely go for it. You won't be disappointed.

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.

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 wasn’t 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.

I have hired and depended on Skyler for guitar, bass, piano and vocals on any amount of notice to write, record or perform just he and I in a room with a mic or in front of a crowd of hundreds. Point being, he's versatile and delivers. The same consistent musicality is what he offers through his teaching. I've learned how to be better at every aspect of music working with him, from the technical aspect to simply enjoying playing and listening more. Highly recommend

Benjamin is doing a superb job with me. I am a retired, 68 year old guy who just took up guitar lessons for a hobby. Benjamin comes from South King County to our home in University Place. It’s a pretty long drive in lousy traffic. He shows up chipper and says let’s go learn something today. He is an accomplished artist who is patient with me making noise rather than music. I am learning slowly but surely with his help. Neither he or I have broken my guitar out of frustrations. He Intuits that I am going to be slower than some of his other students. I am enjoying myself. He shows me things to practice each week. I would highly recommend him for all ages. I know he teaches youngsters also, which are a far cry from me. Give him a try! LE

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!
