I've just started taking my first guitar lessons ever, about 3 months now, with Scott, I really like his way of teaching, he is very professional and knowledgeable, I would definitely recommend him to anybody that is either a beginner or advanced guitar player, looking forward to be able to play the blues and I'm pretty sure that with his help I'll be rocking the house soon. Play on!!

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 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'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.

JD Dorland Music has been a fantastic experience. I chose to start Piano Lessons in the middle of December which is already a very busy month and JD was very accommodating with dates and times. I am an adult with no experience in playing the Piano or reading music and my first lesson was a great experience. He is incredibly friendly and the environment was laid back and welcoming. JD provided me with the tools necessary to succeed outside of my lesson with a combination of book and online work. I truly felt like he set me up to be successful. You will not be disappointed by JD Dorland Music.

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.

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 daughter has only had two lessons with Aaron, so I do not have a long term relationship to base my review on. However, I can say that Aaron was very prompt at returning my emails and phone calls . Very professional in how he approached making financial arrangements and scheduling our lessons. He provided references for me to check with. He offered a complementary initial lesson. And perhaps most important, when I pick up my daughter from her lesson she has a smile on her face and says Aaron is very nice.

I started piano lessons with Luke some two months ago, as my fifth tutor in about 8 years of private lessons. As soon as our first lesson, I was impressed by Luke's sense of observation and musicality. He would identify motions I wasn't doing properly or passages I could play more expressively and gave clear advice on how to practice and improve - way better than previous tutors I've had. He also teaches interpretation, improvisation and theory - and not just the basic solfege - so we don't end up silo'ed on strictly classical, or strictly jazz music. He's very sympathetic and, in a word, a great teacher. I think I have a lot to learn from him.

I had one 1-hour guitar lesson with Curt and it was a good experience. He clearly knows his stuff. He listened well and took the time to get a sense of where I'm at. After playing some he gave me some exercises that I think will be very helpful. I will be going back for more lessons.

Aaron is very talented. He has a pleasant personality and is very understanding. He is very easy to communicate with. He makes sure that you really get it. He is both professional and easygoing. He is great at seeing his students’ talents and at helping develop these talents. I would definitely recommend Aaron to any students looking to improve their voice, guitar skills, piano skills, or composing skills. He is also a terrific producer! He is amazing at translating ideas into music.

I've had 2 lessons with Daniel. Not only is he punctual, professional, and clearly, very knowledgable about piano and music theory, but he is also an excellent teacher and generous with time and materials. He has a calm demeanor and is a very clear communicator. I feel lucky to have been placed with Daniel, and hope to continue working with him for a while.
