Very well trained piano teacher. Was able to teach the kids in a meaningful way that hooked them on learning the piano.

Kierstyn had the incredibly unique ability to teach me every single song I wanted to learn while still teaching a range of classical, jazz, and pop fundamentals all along the way. I couldn't recommend her more.

I am a string specialist. That means I teach and play violin, viola, cello, double bass, guitar, bass guitar, mandolin, ukulele and piano. I earned B.A. earned from the University of Northern Colorado, Greeley Colorado where I was a double major in classical guitar and double bass. In my senior year I was the recipient of the Annual Concerto Contest where I performed the "Concerto in A Major" on double bass with the University orchestra for the spring concert. I have played in both professional and semi-professional orchestras in Colorado and Arizona. I believe that any student will practice more if he or she likes the music they are playing. Periodically I will ask a student to give me a name of a piece of music that they would like to learn how to play. I notate it for them, often simplifying the rhythm and chords in Finale NotePad and give it to them free of charge. I teach students how to play music on their given instrument. Not just how to play the instrument but working on ...

Mr. Victor is teaching both of my kids, one guitar and the other piano. They are beginners, and he is very patient but keeps a good pace. I feel like they are learning a lot. He is a true music teacher and knows his stuff!
Victoria W.
It was awesome! Great pace and great mix of technical and practical.
Laura
Victor has been an amazing teacher. He is extremely knowledgeable not only about violin, but about practically every other stringed instrument there is. He also has an amazing grasp of musical theory, and has really helped me learn about my instrument. He has also helped me grow as a student. He keeps me interested in the music, and still challenges me to keep improving. I have had other music teachers, but he is definitely the best I've had.

We're gonna HAVE FUN! Your lessons will be customized to your needs and what you want to do with your ability to play guitar. I can teach you either electric or acoustic guitar. I can prepare you for any genre as I include fundamentals (for example, scales and arpeggios) in your practice. I use Mel Bay's Modern Guitar Method books for reference and/or lesson work. I can help you learn how to play with a pick, how to finger-pick, how to sing and play simultaneously, and even how to sightread.

Sam
Mr. B is wonderful! I went through two other teachers before him and neither of them taught what I wanted to learn. Mr. B was the only who asked me, " Hey what do YOU want to learn?" I didn't know that was even an option. He is very knowledgeable, talented, and the nicest guy you'd ever want to meet!

Holly
Alex has inspired my son to love playing music for the rest of his life. I can't think of a more wonderful gift. His technique in teaching allowed my son to enjoy learning guitar by playing songs he wanted to play. This made him want to practice just for the fun of it! Alex taught my son from the time he was 9 years old until he was 15. The easy going, positive attitude Alex exudes encouraged my son along his journey and made a strong bond and connection between the two of them. I wholeheartedly encourage anyone who would like to learn to play guitar to sign up for lessons with Alex!
Christopher
Alex is a superb teacher and is very patient and well schooled. I look forward to my lessons every Friday.
Krystal
Alex is incredibly knowledgeable and great with students off every age group! I took lessons from him for five years and my only regrets were not having more time to practice so I could get more out of my lesson times.
During lessons we worked on sight reading, ear training, memorizing chords and scales, different picking and strumming patterns, theory lessons, and anything else that I discovered and wanted to try.

"*Read the whole review!*

I took guitar lessons from Aaron for about 5 years and it was brutal the first year and a half, since it was the first genuine music training/instruction I'd really received in my life.
He was understanding of my beginner status and ALWAYS made sure I had memorized all the basic chords, notes, melodies, etc. before moving onto the intermediate and eventually advanced techniques.
He answered any question I had promptly and with a full explanation, -ex: he'd play the part of a song I had a hard time with, then asked me to play it on my axe, and at my own pace- which was good considering I liked experimenting out harder stuff when I still considered myself just a real good amatuer.
On top of all that he keeps up with the times, so that newest film or game thats come out, he'll know what your talking about. A nice change from the old geezers who I've received music tips from who didn't know what an Xbox is.
The top choice for a guitar instructor if you live in the San Diego area."

"Matt Macaulay has taught me guitar in his studio and at my home over the course of the last two years. He is a wonderful teacher, caring, thoughtful and thorough. I've had a lot of music teachers over the years but Matt stood out in his ability to provide organized and interesting teaching sessions which are well prepared for in advance and always entertaining. Matt is an amazing motivator and swiftly got me through the burdens of an early learning curve and into the fascinating world of music. I would warmly recommend him to anyone who is interested in learning - at any age - and is looking for a highly skilled and caring teacher!"

"A couple of years ago I dabbled in guitar playing and recently decided to take my playing a bit more seriously. Then, I found Ben Zinn. He is a highly proficient guitarist and a phenomenal guitar teacher.

Ben’s wide-range of musical knowledge and background enables me to learn at a much quicker pace than I expected. His patience in teaching allows us to communicate as teacher and student very well. I feel comfortable expressing my musical goals with him. He takes the time to help me understand the structure of what I’m learning without over burdening me with theory.

Ben has the flexible approach to training that caters to the individual student and keeps lessons fun and interesting while maintaining solid progress to individual goals.

He is an ultra-talented musician in his own right, but knows how to “break it down” to nice bite-sized pieces for beginning musicians such as myself. Moreover, he’s one of the nicest guys you’ll meet.

If you’re looking for someone who brings out the real joy in playing the guitar, Ben is your instructor. I encourage anyone looking to finally learn the guitar to sign up for lessons with Ben."
