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!

I can't say enough good stuff about Jon's guitar lessons. I came in with some very basic beginner experience and Jon inspired me to reach much more intermediate and advanced levels. I learned a lot about theory as well as the practical application of the lessons. We worked with many genres and I am a much more inspired and competent guitar player today. Jon is easy to connect with and his guidance inspired me to practice and really learn to play well.

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'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 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.

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!

Jonny is an outstanding guitar instructor! As a beginner, I was looking for a teacher that could show me how to play the songs I like, but could also help me learn the specific techniques to play those songs. He provided all of that and more. He is laid back, very supportive, and does a great job of providing a clear path to success. He is awesome!

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!

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.

Ford’s guitar lessons are top notch. He has an easy style and gets you to playing right away. I was worried that I couldn’t be taught and Ford patience and perseverance has gotten me to play outside of my comfort zone. I like that he is flexible with his lesson times as my schedule sometimes conflicts our scheduled time. I highly recommend Lessons by Ford

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 11-year-old son has taken 2 1/2 years of guitar lessons with Bob, and he's still as excited as when he started, if not more so. Bob balances what my son would like to learn with what he needs to learn--blending fun and cool with theory and practice in a way that challenges but doesn't overwhelm. Plus he's a delightful person. We've had an excellent experience with Bob and 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.

Liam Leo guitar on a regular basis for nearly two years and we couldn’t have been happier with his work. His skill as a musician was clear from the start. But equally impressive were his intangible skills. He was a great communicator with our son— a teacher who took learning seriously but also made learning fun. Leo always looked forward to his lessons, which to us was as good an indication as any of the quality of Liam’s work. But beyond that, Leo really professed as a musician under Liam’s guidance, learning elements of theory and fundamentals of technique but also learning to play a lot of really cool songs. Leo found Liam inspiring , so much so that Leo wound applying to the same arts school that Liam attended. He’s a sixth grader there now, happily building on the musical foundation that Liam helped lay for him.
