Scott is a very informed, experienced, and personable guitar instructor. He has a great ear, and and even better ability to pick out your weaknesses and turn them into strengths. I went into my lessons with Scott with a few years of guitar playing experience, but not much knowledge of music theory or even knowing scales. He did a great job of creating lessons and catering to what I wanted to learn. I would definitely recommend him to anyone who wants to learn more about guitar, from beginners to advanced! Thanks Scott!

Tara Tinsley is extremely talented! She also has the upmost patience while teaching. I am a beginner at the guitar, and if there was a word to describe "less a than beginner," that would be me. She went at my own pace because obviously I am very slow to switch between chords. I have taken a couple lessons so far and as long as I practice what she teaches at home I know I will be able to play songs in no time. I would recommend her to anybody for guitar lessons. Her office is in a great, historic building in downtown Tacoma. It is a professional office building with free street parking close by (which is almost impossible to find downtown). The lobby has seating for students and/or parents to wait. For parents that don't want to wait inside, there is a coffee and wine bar a block away! If anyone is skeptical she has music on YouTube and Spotify. Check it out and I know you will be convinced to learn from her!

I shopped several places before discovering Seattle Guitar Mentor. Awesome place to learn guitar! I've been taking lessons here since June 2016 and I'm having a blast! My son saw how much fun I was having with it and started taking lessons a couple months after me! Ryan is a great instructor/mentor and really cares about each student. A true professional with a real understanding of instruction techniques and music theory. I am learning so much and Ryan keeps it fun and interesting! Highly recommended.

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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

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.

I took my 11 yo daughter to Tarik for guitar lessons, and I would highly recommend him as a guitar instructor. He was able to meet her at her level, challenge her and inspire her in equal measure. His depth and breadth of knowledge with theory and technique is very impressive, and is matched by his natural ability as a teacher. My daughter now has the ability to look up nearly any song and be playing it within minutes, because she has an excellent foundational understanding.

Abe is knowledgeable, patient, professional but most importantly, he is passionate about teaching music. I’ve had guitar teachers in the past and I could honestly say Abe is the best. He makes everything so clear and challenges me each week so I’m not bored. He’s professional but he also makes lessons fun! I would highly recommend him as an instructor ;-)
