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!
Outstanding guitar instructor! Jacob is very patient and easy to get along with. He's a fantastic musician and sincerely works to make sure that I stay interested and continue to get better. I would highly recommend him as a guitar, bass or drum teacher to anyone looking for music lessons!
My son has taken guitar lessons from Ford for years, and could not be happier. He plays his guitar for hours a day now. Fords lessons are very specific to the student, and what they are trying to learn. He has a system, but doesn't hold the student to a strict book learned curriculum, but rather tailors the lessons to the student. We had to take a break, due to multiple other commitments, school, soccer, etc, but my son is very anxious to get back to learning with Ford this year. I have taken up bass, and am thinking about taking some bass lessons from him myself.
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
David teaches me classical guitar. He is kind, encouraging, and patient. He gently instructs me on the importance of finger positioning and rhythm. David is well-grounded in musical theory and can discuss the history of musicology. Each lesson has been a positive and enlightening experience. Thanks to my teacher, I have rediscovered my love of classical guitar!
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.
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 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.
He's real cool and knows how to teach
I have taken lessons from Bob Crow for the past five years, and I have nothing but great things to say about Bob, his teaching style, and all the great songs that I have learned. When I first started taking lessons, I was a competent flat picker (at best), but I could not finger pick, count times or take on challenging songs. Thanks to Bob's patient teaching style, I now regularly take onand masteradvanced-level songs.
When bob taught me about triads it helped me learn about music theory and get my fingers used to playing in a four finger position.
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.
I focus on the individual needs and learning styles of students to makes sure they get the most out of my lessons. I can teach guitar, pedal steel guitar, bass, upright bass, songwriting, ear training, music theory, and composition--the works! I enjoy being flexible with my students so I can find the road to understanding, whatever that path may be for a specific concept or idea.
I teach beginning to intermediate guitar lessons in the comfort of your home. It can be for 30 min., 45 min. or a full 60 min for afternoons and weekends only. Bring your own guitar or use the house guitar.
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 aim to teach students how to be a relevant musician. My lessons are focused on the progress of music itself.
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.
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!
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'm the best guitarist on this planet. If you know someone better, then tell me.
