Ed is talent and wonderful instructor. My son enjoys and looks forward to his guitar lessons with Ed. It's been easy to schedule lessons and Ed's responsiveness to all emails is quick and commendable.
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.
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 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.
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.
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 wasnt 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.
Sami has musical knowledge well beyond his years in singing, guitar, drums, and much more. Working with him for 2+ years has made him one of my closets friends.
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!!
Took guitar and voice lessons with Skyler, I learned an incredible amount in a short time. He definitely knows his stuff and comes to lessons with a lot of enthusiasm and passion.
I had to hunt around to find the lessons. Ben is a great fit for where I'm at with guitar and with music. He is quite proficient and very affordable!
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.
Andrew is excellent. Very skilled musician and makes my daughter feel very comfortable while playing her guitar. She's learned so much just in two lessons! Has so much more confidence playing. We very much recommend him.
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!
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.
Eric Leberg has been mentoring me in performing as a jazz singer. He has been generous with supporting my learning to sing by producing charts for the songs, playing along with me as I sing and giving me feedback on how I present as well as information re: stagecraft, arranging the songs and working with other musicians. He has encouraged my efforts as well as given me helpful insight into what is working and where I can improve. I truly appreciate the time he has spent working with me. Because of his work, I am much further along in my singing career than I would have been without him. Pamela Beatty Jazz Vocalist, Visual Artist and Inspirational Speaker
Lessons with purpose, direction, and application With, Practical Guitar Lessons I aim to teach students concepts that are immediately applicable in real musical settings. Are you tired of running exercises and theory worksheets without really knowing why? Are you having a difficult time retaining things that you learn on the guitar? As a professional session guitarist, as well as an alumni of Berklee College of Music, I have spent years developing my playing in real life musical settings. I can show you how to not only learn the instrument, but learn the skills needed to succeed at the jam session, on stage, or in the studio. My teaching method centers around APPLICATION. I want to teach you big concepts and theory, but it will always come through the lens of music you know and love. Why study with Dylan? A) I'm not just a professional guitar teacher. I'm a real-life working guitarist that performs and does studio work for a living. I don't just teach for a paycheck (I don't need to) - I teach because I love it, and want to help make your journey on the guitar easier and more enjoyable. B) Not only do I have years of real-world performance experience - I also have the training and degree to back it up. I've studied with some of the best guitarists around, at some of the world's top institutions. I know my stuff, and I know how to apply it in the real world. C) I starting teaching guitar to friends of my family as a teenager, and have never stopped! Between my real-world experience, academic training, and teaching experience, I'm confident that I can work with you to become the guitarist you want to be.
We learn to play guitar with well-thought-out lessons, and we'll figure out where you are and teach you what you want to learn.
I am an advanced player of various instruments and love interacting with others. No matter your age or skill level, I can be a great personal teacher just for you!
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 offer private guitar lessons for all ages. Beginners can get started with a solid foundation while playing what they like. This is great for the required motivation. Do you find yourself in a rut? I can definitely help with that and learn to break through that barrier that is holding you back. I have over 20 years of experience with the skills that are necessary to tailor the lessons that will get you where you want in a fun and efficient manner.
I let the students lead the lesson, I'll teach them the songs they want to learn and what you can take away from the song to make you a better musician.
