Adam is a great teacher. My daughter really enjoys going which is great when your only 11years old. Adam is wonderful at explaining to my daughter why she has to do the exercises and how everything will affect her singing voice. So much more then I expected.

When I decided to take guitar lessons I couldn't have chose a better teacher. Rina is a great teacher! She is patient and kind and she makes sure you really understand the material. I have learned so much and I'm glad to say that I will continue to learn the most I can about playing the guitar from Rina!

When I decided to learn to play another instrument, I was nervous and excited at the same time. I contacted Take Lessons and they recommended Rina.
Rina is a true blessing. She has made me feel comfortable from the moment I met her. She is very friendly, knowledgeable, and patient. I look forward to my weekly lessons with her. Its been one year since I have been Rina's student and I have seen a large improvement in what I have learned. Rina rocks!!!!!

Jeff is an outstanding teacher.

I started taking guitar lessons with him since November 2012, for more than 2 years now. I was an absolute beginner with the guitar, and Jeff taught me the basics of the guitar amazingly and helped me build a strong guitar core. Jeff lets you stay a few extra minutes after the class ends, if you are "in the zone" or if you are just finishing up the lesson. He also gives great advice on the type of guitar you would be best off buying. Jeff also tells you when you need to change the strings and gives advice on fixing up the guitar should it have a problem. Also, Jeff teaches you any song you want. The genre doesn't matter - Jeff will help you master any song you wish to learn. One of the most important thing about Jeff is that he is always looking to find ways to make playing guitar easier and make it sound better. He gives little tips that greatly help you, in both playing chords or songs. He is also very patient and will always answer your questions, so don't be afraid to ask anything. Jeff also supplements his lessons with the Hal Leonard book, to help you learn how to read and play written music and he also explains what all the symbols mean.

I would highly recommend Jeff to anyone who wants to learn the guitar as he goes to great lengths to help his students in any way possible.

I am 38 years old and I had started to try to learn guitar on my own for a few months before I started taking lessons with Jeff. I had gotten frustrated with just using a book and the internet and was very impressed when I met Jeff. He took the time to get to know what I wanted to learn and how. He always listens to me and tailors our sessions to what is best. He can actually see the things that he knows I will struggle with and will give the advance "pep talk" to me to not get discouraged when I try to practice. He takes the time to watch me play very closely so that he can give me advice on how to better my hand positioning and finger movements (and I need that!).

And that's just Jeff's interaction with me. In addition to that, he is a great musician. He can hear everything and can write down the chords of a song he never before in only a few minutes. He can play almost anything just by ear. He also knows music theory and was able to help answer my questions in that area. He also guided me towards some theory and scale books since I showed extra interest in that.

In terms of personality, Jeff is very patient and kind. He cares about what he does and he cares about his students. He knows what it's like to face the challenges of learning an instrument. He was even gracious enough to spend his time helping me to pick out my first electric guitar (I had been using just an acoustic). In additional to that, he is ALWAYS on time for lessons and spends that extra few minutes when he can.

I would highly recommend Jeff for guitar lessons!

If you are looking for the best guitar teacher, I recommend Jeff. He teaches music with precision. Jeff is patient, and makes sure you get all the notes correct. He is eager to teach new songs, even if they aren't in the book. Jeff also knows the best accessories for the guitar (strap, tuner, etc.) and where you can find them. He also gives the option of coming to your home, which is convenient. Jeff teaches different genres of music, like blues, folk, classical, and jazz. At the end of class, he plays games with you, like guess the note. He has a vast knowledge in music; he will tell you what the symbols on the page mean. Jeff also helps you learn the chords, which are hard. He is truly an awesome teacher!- Ashwin

About Rosemary

I have 30 yrs teaching experience PLUS the added expertise of being a performing pro singer! My students are signed recording artists AND people just starting out. I have taught in colleges and privately with an emphasis on pop/jazz/blues/rock/musical theater singing. I teach in such a way that students have told me they learn more in one lesson with me than in years of study somewhere else! You will not do needless voice exercises. We will use songs you like as teaching tools, giving you the opportunity to also expand your repertoire. My lessons are interesting and fun! Taking lessons from someone who has been and is a real actively performing teacher makes all the difference in how well and how quickly you will get your act together! :-)

Jimmy is the best vocal teacher around. I call him my vocal coach because his teaching is more like coaching. He allows you to develop at your own pace. He does not rush you. His patience and diligence to help you develop your abilities as a singer demonstrates how much he cares for you to be your very best in a short period of time. His recording studio is state of the art in that you feel you are a professional singer recording your music. He is the best out there!

I've had lessons with Jimmy for a year. I didn't talk with him as much during our lessons in the beginning but soon, I was able to laugh and really start talking with him. As a teacher, Jimmy makes sure that you're comfortable learning with him from day 1. He slowly eases into the learning of music theory and how the guitar works. He makes sure that you stay interested while learning what's necessary about music. You can tell that he has a enormous passion for music, that he's even made mine evolve to the point where not only am I learning how to play the guitar, but singing as well! Having learned from him, I was able to stay relaxed and comfortable. He makes sure to understand the way you learn and uses it to help drive your passion to the right direction. Learning from him was one of the best choices I've made. And choosing him as your teacher will be one of the greatest experiences you'll have!

My 9 year old daughter has been taking lessons with Jimmy for about six months. She has learned a lot about the guitar in general, as well as music as a whole, and I love to hear her strumming away in her bedroom. Jimmy is a patient and kind teacher, he's very good with kids and my daughter looks forward to her lessons with him all week. I am astounded by how much she's learned in just six short months.
