I've been taking guitar lessons from Ken for 3 weeks now. I had tried to learn on my own for several years and never got anywhere. This is why I decided to find an instructor using this service. Before I even met Ken he tought me some things I wasn't aware of - not finding it in any videos or written materials online. I think a lot of people that play instruments forget what it is to learn it. Ken has helped with this, I was pressing on the strings too hard and in the wrong areas. He helped with holding the guitar correctly, tuning it, and more. In three weeks I can play 6 chords already, and made more progress than what I did on my own over 3 years. So far, so good!

Mike is very knowledgeable and great at putting the information into a context that you can understand. He clearly has a knack for teaching guitar. I'm taking advanced lessons and feel like I already learned a lot just in our 1hr consultation. I'm looking forward to continue working with him and definitely suggest him to anyone looking to learn guitar. Having lessons in a studio is also a big bonus!

The service is beginner Guitar. Guy has a great personality for making his students feel comfortable. His greatest attribute is his patience and relaxed method of teaching. He takes the time to repeat and slow it down until the student gets it, including demonstrating on his guitar. He also demonstrates how common chord progressions are used in popular music. His down fall (or maybe mine) is the information comes fast with only a week to practice, I some times feel I am not progressing at the rate I should be. But his assurance and confidence in me keeps me practicing hard. I would recommend him to anyone interested in learning how to play the guitar.

I first contacted Reed in hopes of finding a guitarist that might be interested in accompanying me while I sang. I’m an adult who was never exposed to vocal or instrumental lessons growing up. Needless-to-say I was beyond green. I was focusing on singing, and it never crossed my mind to even try guitar. Reed’s love of music is contagious though and with his encouragement, we started formal guitar lessons. I warned him I didn’t want to dive into theory, read music, etc. I just wanted to be able to play current songs I could sing to. He tailored his lessons to my goals, but over time I realized he was not only teaching me those songs, he was teaching me the foundation of guitar and building up a chord & (I hate to admit it)- theory- library honestly without me even noticing. He is able to simplify the complex world of music and make it fun. If you’ve seen him play, you know he is an extremely versed guitarist, and despite his elite skill set he was more than patient, understanding and encouraging for a beginner like me. I have also seen him work with advanced guitarist, and he is beyond able to vary the curriculum to suit their needs. I highly recommend taking lessons with Reed no matter what level you’re at. I would have never imagined in less than a year of doing so, I would be hosting my own YouTube channel and writing original music. I have Reed to thank for that. I unfortunately don’t live in the same state as Reed anymore, but I still continue to do skype lessons with him as I want to continue to grow and improve, and well, he's the best! -Jessica Marie

Emily is a fantastic teacher! My 7 year old just loves going to lessons. He is a beginner student and is advancing wonderfully. He is always excited for lessons and Emily has a great style of teaching. He is focused and engaged in his lessons (and wishes they were longer). I would highly recommend her if you are looking for an instructor.

Patty and Jestin are very friendly and have opened their musical home to my 10 yr old daughter who is quite shy. She loves her weekly lessons and they are both extremely educated in music. They both play multiple instruments. She has learned a lot in the last 4 months plus. This couple, which I would highly recommend, are very hip and take onto kids as if they were their own. I love how they teach and how easily my child retains the information. They also are very easy going on missed lessons (sorry) and rescheduling! Thanks Patty & Jestin for spreading your musical talents!

My son has been taking guitar lessons with Mr. Ross for two years. Not only has he enjoyed learning jazz and rock, but his playing has greatly improved. I would highly recommend him as a teacher.

Jimmy does a really good job of teaching me what it is that I want to learn and get out of playing guitar. He is extremely knowledgeable and talented which gives him the instant credibility but also teaches in a very relaxed manner that makes learning fun and enjoyable. He's already helped me improve my technique and learn songs that have stood in my way for many years. Jimmy is very flexible to work with as far as scheduling goes and will come to your home to do lessons. It takes all hassle out of guitar lessons and eliminates any excuse not to improve. I highly recommend lessons with Jimmy.

About

I have been teaching basic music theory/rhythm, along with improvisation and fret board logic as well as chords and scales. My influences include hard rock, blues/funk and some metal. Prices range from half-hour to 1-hour lessons, along with distance to location of the lesson.

About

I have been playing drums and percussion for 12 years now and am very experienced reading and improvising. I have also been playing guitar for over 15 years now, and I have given lessons in the past.

About

Many guitar teachers and books focus on a set of basics, and building songs around very basic principles for beginners. Though this works, it causes many students to lose interest and give up, since the music they love seems so far away. I'm here to show students what they're striving for is attainable, and their goals are going to be met.

I'm Zach. I've been playing for about 9 years, and I'm at the point where I'm starting to teach others, and it's exciting! We can go over anything you'd like (guitar tone, beginner, intermediate and advanced techniques, chords, scales, modal scales etc.) or we can stick to a basic, from-top-to-bottom lesson plan.

I have an unending passion for music, and work as hard as I can at it. I try to put my values into my music as well.

About

Have you ever tried guitar lessons and wondered why it was so difficult to learn? Ninety-nine percent of all guitar teachers start with standard EADGBE tuning. My method makes it much easier to play instantly using DADGAD tuning. This tuning is easier because it uses two finders instead of three and four for most chords. Plus, it sounds better. I don't show how to learn cover songs. Anyone can get tab on the Internet. What I teach is a way to write and sing songs. I offer easy-way lessons at $10.00 per hour.

I teach guitar lessons. I love blues, rock, folk, some other interesting styles in the independent and "cult-following" genres. I am not as comfortable with jazz. I would do an even exchange if someone wanted to learn something from me I would take jazz lessons. I believe 45 minutes for a guitar lesson is perfectly reasonable, but if someone wanted to go longer or shorter we can get into contact and figure that out.

Throughout the decade I've played guitar, I've learned that one of my passions is teaching others to play as well. I'd love to meet you and to get you started on your way toward guitar proficiency!

I teach individual guitar lessons that focus on the needs of each student. I will travel to your home, or I may have clients at my apartment. No experience is necessary by the student. This will be catered to your taste!
