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.

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.

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.

My son has taken guitar lessons from Ford for years, and could not be happier. He plays his guitar for hours a day now. Fords lessons are very specific to the student, and what they are trying to learn. He has a system, but doesn't hold the student to a strict book learned curriculum, but rather tailors the lessons to the student. We had to take a break, due to multiple other commitments, school, soccer, etc, but my son is very anxious to get back to learning with Ford this year. I have taken up bass, and am thinking about taking some bass lessons from him myself.

Dude has the patience of a saint. Justin is technically a talented musician. He also has a teaching skill-set that many artists do not. I have been taking guitar lessons from Justin for over a year, and literally have no complaint. He's a great guy, he is reasonable and flexible in scheduling, and has lots of experience and proper equipment to teach guitar, bass and drums.

I have hired and depended on Skyler for guitar, bass, piano and vocals on any amount of notice to write, record or perform just he and I in a room with a mic or in front of a crowd of hundreds. Point being, he's versatile and delivers. The same consistent musicality is what he offers through his teaching. I've learned how to be better at every aspect of music working with him, from the technical aspect to simply enjoying playing and listening more. Highly recommend

I have wanted to play bass guitar for a long time and finally took the leap recently. Jeff Larson was willing to take me on despite my total neophyte status with the instrument and my inability to read music. I'm fortunate to have found such a knowledgable,experienced, personable and patient teacher.

I was a piano student with Larry Schacher for two years. I had classical training but was interested in learning about jazz, blues, and improvisation. I was nervous to start, but Larry soon put me at ease, helping me transition to the new style I was attempting to learn. Larry teaches with patience and understanding while keeping the process entertaining and challenging.

RL is a phenomenal instructor. Besides his ability to shred, he is a master in music theory and can convey his knowledge in a very understandable way. He is well versed in all the genres, from jazz to rock and everything in between. He has had a huge impact on my playing. My lessons with RL are the most rewarding part of my week. Go Seahawks!

Knowledgeable, encouraging, patient, & prompt. Having come from a very small musical background Nathaniel was extremely helpful in laying down a solid foundation for how to play the guitar and how to view music in general. Nathaniel clearly has a deep understanding of musical theory and performance. His lessons are structured around what you want to pursue, but at a pace and with material that is challenging, fun, and rewarding to complete. If you are looking for a teacher that is serious about music, experienced and poses the ability to help you reach your musical goals, whether that be increasing your aptitude with an instrument or studying complex theory, I would strongly suggest Nathaniel.

Eric Leberg has been mentoring me in performing as a jazz singer. He has been generous with supporting my learning to sing by producing charts for the songs, playing along with me as I sing and giving me feedback on how I present as well as information re: stagecraft, arranging the songs and working with other musicians. He has encouraged my efforts as well as given me helpful insight into what is working and where I can improve. I truly appreciate the time he has spent working with me. Because of his work, I am much further along in my singing career than I would have been without him. Pamela Beatty Jazz Vocalist, Visual Artist and Inspirational Speaker

Max taught me basic music theory and some scales. Max was very knowledgeable and was able to break down the lessons into smaller and easier steps for me to grasp.

About

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.

I have been a working musician for many years. I have played from coast to coast, in venues as small as house parties and as big as the House of Blues. Music is a beautiful way to connect and impact those who are around us!

About

I offer private music lessons for guitar, bass and drums. I teach music reading, scales, chords, freestyle jamming and ultimately to love to play music. I am great with people of all ages and teach according to the student's personality and specifically desired path in playing. I have been playing since I was in the fourth grade and urge parents to start your kids on the musical path, while they are young. They learn quicker and will be able to grow into musical adults! They will thank you in their album liner notes. Talk to you soon, Bradley Tatum
