Verified review

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 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 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.

My experience with Merlyn's Music Studio was absolutely amazing. Merlyn Ahern is a jewel, and hands down the best music instructor that I've ever trained with. She has an impeccable ear for music, and she never fails to bring out the best in each of her students. I couldn't have imagined training with anyone other than her to prepare myself for my performance in the 2015 Miss Black USA Scholorship Pageant. Not only did I receive a standing ovation from the audience for my talent performance, I also received a score of 136 out of 140 from the judges!!! I couldn't have done it without her. She is the BEST!!! -De'Vaughnn Williams, Miss. Black Washington USA 2015 & 2016.

About

I have taught piano lessons for at least two years, and guitar for a little while. I think I'm a really great teacher, and students have been happy with my teaching at affordable rates of $20/hr for piano lessons and $15/hr for guitar lessons. I just received my BA in Music and Education from Eastern Washington University, which qualifies me to teach private piano or guitar lessons. I'm willing to travel up to about 20 miles, or you can travel to me.

Verified review

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 on—and master—advanced-level songs.
