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.
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!
Jacob is fantastic with beginners, especially kids. Instead of focusing on scales and theory, he starts them out playing actual songs they want to play, and builds lessons from there. Hes very chill and encouraging and makes the lessons and practice fun and engaging. I would HIGHLY recommend him to anyone looking at lessons for their kids or themselves! Hes a fantastic teacher!
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 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.
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!!
Skyler did a great job with teaching myself and my daughter guitar! We were both beginners and he was able to help us both learn and advance according to our individual pace (my daughter moved faster then I did ! ). Highly recommend Skyler regardless of your skill level.
David is a very knowledgeable musician and teacher. I have had lessons from him in both music theory and a band setting. As a band leader he is outstanding and has helped me to understand the theory behind improv soloing. In the study of music theory he is a vault of knowledge and has broken things down to the smallest part so that beginners like me can start learning and USING the info in practice. The book he wrote is well laid out and very useful both in organization of theory and tools for practice on saxophone.
Ben's been great at getting me over my trepidation with learning guitar. After my fourth lesson I've been able to pick up the basics. He's patient, helpful, good humored, and inspires me to keep going. Thanks, Ben.
Benjamin is doing a superb job with me. I am a retired, 68 year old guy who just took up guitar lessons for a hobby. Benjamin comes from South King County to our home in University Place. It’s a pretty long drive in lousy traffic. He shows up chipper and says let’s go learn something today. He is an accomplished artist who is patient with me making noise rather than music. I am learning slowly but surely with his help. Neither he or I have broken my guitar out of frustrations. He Intuits that I am going to be slower than some of his other students. I am enjoying myself. He shows me things to practice each week. I would highly recommend him for all ages. I know he teaches youngsters also, which are a far cry from me. Give him a try! LE
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.
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.
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.
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 have taught students, ages 6 to 60, beginner to advanced. I love to teach all aspects of the guitar, from rhythm to lead, finger dexterity and lots of practice exercises to help you be the guitarist you always wanted to be. My main focus is to teach the students the type of music they would like to learn and achieve their goals of learning certain songs or styles --rock, metal, blues, and country.
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 give guitar lessons to beginners and intermediate students. I give acoustic guitar and electric guitar lessons. I can also help with questions on guitar gear and help you find what would fit best for you. I have a background of teaching kids and teens as I have taught gymnastics and swim lessons to big groups for 4 years.
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.
