I am an new musician and an adult learner. I am taking bass guitar lessons from Scott. He is my second instructor, and I plan to take lessons from him for a long time as I grow as a musician. Scott is amazing!!! He has met me where I am in my knowledge, and breaks it all down in understandable manageable pieces. I love theory, and he thorough understanding is evidenced in his easy to follow delivery. I am improving quickly and I definitely credit Scott for my improvement. Scott is certainly as competent and more fun than any college professor I have had. I love him and recommend him for classes. But... my time slot is reserved and taken. Enjoy.

Tara Tinsley is extremely talented! She also has the upmost patience while teaching. I am a beginner at the guitar, and if there was a word to describe "less a than beginner," that would be me. She went at my own pace because obviously I am very slow to switch between chords. I have taken a couple lessons so far and as long as I practice what she teaches at home I know I will be able to play songs in no time. I would recommend her to anybody for guitar lessons. Her office is in a great, historic building in downtown Tacoma. It is a professional office building with free street parking close by (which is almost impossible to find downtown). The lobby has seating for students and/or parents to wait. For parents that don't want to wait inside, there is a coffee and wine bar a block away! If anyone is skeptical she has music on YouTube and Spotify. Check it out and I know you will be convinced to learn from her!

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 took guitar lessons from Ryan for about seven months. He really catered the lessons toward your skill level and what you wanted to learn. He also encouraged goal setting and continuous practice with the lessons he provided. Overall, I would recommend him as a guitar teacher because he cares about your specific goals as a guitarist and will work with you to achieve those goals.

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 really enjoy music lessons with Jacob, I've had several teachers and he is by far the easiest to work with and to learn from. He's a great guitar player and keeps the lessons fun, he also does a good job at making sure that what I'm practicing has something to do with what I'm interested in. I've had teachers in the past that did not make guitar interesting, Jacob is great, well worth the money! I'm much better than I was before I started with 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.

    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

    Diana is a wonderful teacher, mentor, and business owner of The Fleming School of Music. She has the skills & understanding to really be in tune with her piano students. Diana's staff is also great; we now have all 3 of our children enrolled in the school. For the last 4 years, we have been happily bringing our kids to their piano lessons, and we always look forward to the Winter and Spring recitals during the school year! My family has full confidence in the Fleming School of Music to give our kids the tools to be successful students of music!

    Benjamin has been wonderful to work with. Our child had been taking lessons with another instructor for a few months and was not progressing much. The other instructor, though well intentioned, was trying to teach multiple things at a time, which would probably have been helpful had our child had some prior guitar experience. Being that that was not the case and we were starting from scratch, it was more overwhelming than anything and resulted in little being absorbed by our child. Benjamin is very kind, patient, and understanding. He works really well with our child and makes things very relaxed and easy to understand. Our child learned one complete song after only one lesson!!! That had been our goal as after several months of lessons with our first instructor, our child unfortunately had not learned to play even one. It is so important to find the right type of teacher as our older child had a decline in patience and confidence due to being in the same lessons with the previous instructor (and wanted to quit). Now after seeing our younger child progress and actually enjoy the lessons with Benjamin, our older child is now expressing interest again in taking guitar lessons. Most things are not easy in the beginning and with the proper teaching and mentoring, along with a good attitude and self discipline, we can accomplish a lot more than perhaps we initially imagined. We think Bemjamin is very well versed in guitar and is an awesome teacher. We are very grateful for his help and his approach and style to teaching as he is a real confidence booster.

    I took my 11 yo daughter to Tarik for guitar lessons, and I would highly recommend him as a guitar instructor. He was able to meet her at her level, challenge her and inspire her in equal measure. His depth and breadth of knowledge with theory and technique is very impressive, and is matched by his natural ability as a teacher. My daughter now has the ability to look up nearly any song and be playing it within minutes, because she has an excellent foundational understanding.
