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!

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.

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.

Jonny has been giving my daughter guitar lessons for 2 months now and we love him! He's patient and fun and really brings out the best in his students. He's also flexible on our lesson schedule which in these busy times is definitely a plus! We look forward to many more lessons with him.

David R.
Verified review

I've been playing guitar for about 18 years, recreationally. I knew how to play songs and even knew some scales. But I had no idea how my guitar worked or why I was doing the things I had learned. Working with Michael has been very eye-opening. I am learning the "why" and the "how" of the music I play. Michael starts with small building blocks and teaches, step-by-step, how you put those pieces together to make music. This process has really made me enjoy picking up my guitar again. The lessons are fun and interesting. Michael doesn't pressure you and is happy to go as fast or as slowly as you want. And as my knowledge of music increases, I find myself sounding better and better when I goof around and improvise on my own. I would recommend working with Michael if you are like me and have "self-taught" yourself on the guitar and would like to become a better musician.

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.

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.

My 11-year-old son has taken 2 1/2 years of guitar lessons with Bob, and he's still as excited as when he started, if not more so. Bob balances what my son would like to learn with what he needs to learn--blending fun and cool with theory and practice in a way that challenges but doesn't overwhelm. Plus he's a delightful person. We've had an excellent experience with Bob and highly recommend him.

I was in search for a teacher who could offer the technical knowledge of music theory, yet with a mastery in fingerpicking technique. Liam was the perfect teacher, given his academic studies and years of playing genres of guitars. He is really positive, patient, and is constantly aware of the nuances of learning a new instrument (markings of a great teacher). He kept it fun and time passed in a blink of an eye! Looking forward to moving from spanish guitar to electric in the coming year!

I have ongoing weekly lessons with Ken. Having played the guitar for a few years before the lessons, I was nervous about taking lessons and concerned that it would be too text book and something that I could do online for cheaper or free. After 10 minutes with Ken, I knew I had made the right decisions by taking personal lessons. Ken is a great teacher that employs a perfect balance of theory and technique. What I like the most is the way he teaches you how to apply and use the theory and technique in every lesson. Ken is a great teacher that I highly recommend to students of any level.

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.

Friendly and knowledgable, Larry was my piano teacher for over 5 years, but together we dabbled in voice, sax, guitar, and even a bit of drums. He tailored lessons to exactly what I wanted to do and how I wanted to do it. He can stick to the standard lesson plans, or adapt them to exactly what you want to learn. He's a good guy and a good teacher who gave me all the foundations to be confident in just about every aspect of music.

About

I teach fingerstyle guitar, classical guitar, folk, and rock. I also specialize in the Hal Leonard Method, Fredrick Noad Method, and Christopher Parkening Method. My lessons are tailored to each individual student, to their interests and needs. I generally use the Hal Leonard Guitar method but I will use any method best suited for the goals you want to reach. Whatever method we use will be supplemented with other songs and exercises. My lessons tend to be laid back and fun but also challenging. I expect students to do their best and make an effort. The lessons are taught in my studio with an amp, guitar, music stand, books, and seating, or in the students home. Students are required to have their own instrument. I do have instruments available to rent.
