I am an new musician and an adult learner. I am taking bass guitar lessons from Scott. He is my second instructor, and I plan to take lessons from him for a long time as I grow as a musician. Scott is amazing!!! He has met me where I am in my knowledge, and breaks it all down in understandable manageable pieces. I love theory, and he thorough understanding is evidenced in his easy to follow delivery. I am improving quickly and I definitely credit Scott for my improvement. Scott is certainly as competent and more fun than any college professor I have had. I love him and recommend him for classes. But... my time slot is reserved and taken. Enjoy.

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 had several guitar lessons with Scott and had a positive experience from every lesson. I am a beginner and Scott is very patient with his approach. I highly recommend Scott to all guitar students of various levels

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!

We went to Tara for guitar lessons for my 11 year old daughter. Tara makes it fun, very knowledgeable and easy to learn with. She's super sweet and the kids just love her. She's a good example and a beautiful person.

Just started my first lesson today and it was great!. My vocal instructor Megan was phenomenal. I'd love to continue to work with her. She made me feel comfortable right off the bat. I was able to single without feeling nervous and really try to see how far I could go with my voice. The first like 10 minutes I was able to hit high notes warming up with her, notes that I didn't even know I was able to hit. Overall I am really excited to see how much of my voice I can find and improve. Hope to get to work with her for my next session! - MPK

We unfortunately only attended one of Bryan's drum lessons .(only because my four year old wouldn't practice). Bryan was great! He even had on Aladdin, upon us arriving which made my daughter extra comfortable. It was a great ice breaker for them to talk about. I would absolutely recommend Bryan to anyone needing drum lessons ages kids to adult.

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 was sent Brad Mar for my piano lessons, and he's AMAZING. Great guy, lets the lessons flow at a natural pace, and he goes above and beyond getting learning material into your hands. This has been worth every penny and I can't stress enough how valuable this has been for my musicianship. You all rock!

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.

I'd give Ryan 6 stars if I could, he is a great guitar teacher. He is very thoughtful and organized in his teaching, and in helping me reach my goals on the guitar. With previous teachers, I'd spend time learning how to play a riff, or a song, but with Ryan I'm learning so much more about music theory, proper techniques, and how it all fits together. At the same time learning the kind of guitar style that interests me. Ryan is very patient, supportive, and generous with his time and material. I highly recommend Seattle Guitar Mentor if you are looking for high quality instruction on the guitar. It's fun too!

I took guitar lessons from Ryan for about seven months. He really catered the lessons toward your skill level and what you wanted to learn. He also encouraged goal setting and continuous practice with the lessons he provided. Overall, I would recommend him as a guitar teacher because he cares about your specific goals as a guitarist and will work with you to achieve those goals.

We've been working with Ken since September for our 11 year old's electric guitar lessons. We've been pleased with Ken's professionalism, structure and teaching style. Our son has learned a great deal in a short time after being away from lessons for two years and enjoys his lessons a lot. Ken is a great guy to work with and the studio is a nice place for private lessons. We've had the opportunity to meet a few of his other students around my son's lesson times, and it's clear that Ken is able to teach and work with a wide variety of ages and levels. We give Ken our highest recommendation.

Ken is a fantastic teacher with tons of experience and a great attitude. I've been learning guitar from him for many years, and hope to continue for years to come! Whether you're a complete beginner (as I was) or a seasoned player interested in learning more music theory or refining your technique, he's a great coach and always has interesting lesson material. The lesson space is comfortable and you'll be treated to professional quality sound during your lessons.

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 wasn’t 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.

From day 1 Ed has given us his all. Firstly he took time to meet us at a music store to help outfit my daughter with the proper guitar. Secondly, he communicates with me so that we are on the same page. Thirdly, and what I like most, is that Ed spends about 5 minutes playing guitar. A) bonus to hear a professional play. B) inspiration. C) modeling proper technique. I'm a firm believer that much is to be learned from observation. D) I also like his humor, personality, and his saying " we do not learn to play an instrument during the lesson, that is what practice is for!" Good synopsis for life learning. I have told others about Ed, who are equally delighted. I guess the good and bad of building his reputation is I'm afraid to let go of our coveted music slot should someone else grab it!!!

I started taking guitar lessons from Ford one month ago to learn finger picking and fudamentals. I am really happy with his method. He lets you choose the songs you like, he teaches you how to play them and in the same time you learn specific techniques. I think this is a very good method to motivate a student and to enjoy learning to play guitar. Actually as soon as the lesson is done I look forward the next lesson because I see myself progressing very quickly. Also he is always available to reply to email if you have any question. I definitely recommend Ford as a guitar teacher.

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 started guitar lessons with Ford with a very specific direction in mind. Finger-picking and chord melody work. I came to realize that I also needed good reminders of quality work. Ford, was patient, consistent and provided the instruction that I needed and I am looking forward to continuing what I have started.

My son, Reece, has been taking guitar lessons from Tony for over a year and a half. Reece thinks that Tony is kind and encouraging. He introduces my son to many different types of music. Tony shows him a variety of styles of playing guitar. He stretches my son and expects great things out of him. He is a versatile teacher, he has worked with my son on electric, acoustic, and classical guitar. As a parent I appreciate that Tony is a great communicator. If my son is sick or if we have to be out of town, he's quick to respond and schedule make up lessons. Reece said, "Tony is very knowledgable and is able to answer any questions that I might have. If he doesn't know the answer, which rarely happens, he comes back the next week having full knowledge of anything regarding that topic." Overall our experience with Tony has been fantastic. I highly recommend him as a music teacher.

I really enjoy taking mandolin lessons from Terry. He is not only an extraordinary, even legendary, player himself, but he has the ability to teach his art and craft and that's certainly not always the case. He not only taught me basic things that I missed with my previous instructors, but helped me continue to advance. Highly recommend.

Terrance Enyeart is a professional musician generously sharing his art form and passing on his skills to students. Quality? Mr. Enyeart is one reason I am a professional today. He prepares us to perform in public and provides a venue at no charge monthly. His rates are reasonable. Terrance Enyeart is an excellent teacher.

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.

Thomas is a great guy. For me, the number one quality I look for in a colleague or partner is that they are someone that I would want to be my friend. Call me crazy, but I prefer to work with friends even though many might choose otherwise. To me this means working with people I trust, people I enjoy spending time with, and people that I know will work hard. All of these things are true of Thomas. Thomas is also of course a skilled musician that isn’t just a good guitar player and a teacher, but he loves music and he loves people, two essential components for being a great music teacher and a faculty member at TIA. Call us and book your lessons or classes with Thomas! Start having fun and making music.
