Roger H.
He is very good with me. I'm not a very good student. I have bad habits and I'm overly sensitive to criticism, yet he has not made me feel bad at all about my playing if you want to call it that. I also have a short attention span and can't read music fluently. But his patience is much appreciated, and each week get a little better at it all. I recommend him to those trying their best to sound a little better.
Avery B.
It was really good information and I had a lot of fun.
Annie B.
I have been taking fiddle/violin lessons from Marc for a few months now, and it has been a great experience. He is very patient and keeps things fun by helping me learn pieces that I am interested in learning to play. I would highly recommend him for any instrument you are wanting to learn.

From Classical to Jazz, and lots of World Music in between.
Guitar was my main instrument until I began playing Bass in bands in 2000. Since then Guitar is still my main 'go-to' for practice at home, teaching music theory, and composition.

David is a talented and extremely knowledgable musician. He has a deep love and respect for the music and imparts this love on his students. Always going above and beyond, he gives all of himself in his students, making sure they not only have proper technique, but a strong foundation of knowledge about the tradition of flamenco. He is able to breakdown and explain the complexities of this arcane art form in a way that is accessible to all levels of musicians. I couldn't recommend him more highly!
Aki M.
David is patient and enthusiastic about teaching how to play the guitar. He is also encouraging!
Adam R.
Had a great experience. David is patient, explains things clearly, and really knows his stuff. Definitely recommended.

George explained things very simply.
Alexander J.
George, was very patient, kind, and seem very knowledgeable. He seems to understand the pedagogy of teaching to kids and realize they all learn differently. I personally think he went above and beyond for my Son first class and for our first introduction. He offered a more modern approach method of teaching music and Piano to my son who so far seem more receptive in learning and practicing. Will se where that take us but I am very please so far.
Tracie S.
George is totally passionate about teaching. He encourages the kids to practice and do their best. He has great knowledge and understanding of music theory. He is pleasant, easy going and works really well with kids. Overall really good teacher. Recommend!

Online Guitar Teacher

In my lessons we first and foremost play music and sounds, focusing on the essence of the playing guitar and developing creativity and understanding of melody, harmony, rhythm and tone. That being said, we will extensively practice technique so that you can gain flexibility in expressing your creativity.
I understand music as well as teaching. Whether you are a complete beginner learning his first chords, or an advanced player requiring a complex approach, I believe I can be of help. My name is Dimitri, and I hope we'll play together. That's it, lets get to work! ;D

About Veljko

I am a professional singer and a multi-instrumentalist, and I record and produce my own songs. My teaching methods are superb and so on and so forth.

"I took guitar classes from Greg for about 8 years, bass lessons for about a year, and drum lessons for about a year, and eventually worked with him as an instructor as well; I'll let you know that you will be very hard-pressed to find a better teacher than Greg - he takes the time to really delve deep into all your lessons and give you the best experience, as well as wonderful material to work with, in order to help you fully reach your potential as a musician. On top of that, he really gets to know you and caters to your style of learning, and helps you recognize your strengths and weaknesses, overall making your learning experience the most fruitful it can be. Besides, he makes the learning fun! I highly recommend and respect Greg as a musician and an instructor."

Excited about your first guitar lesson? Not sure what to expect? Read on as Goodyear, AZ teacher David A. offers his advice on how to prepare, the basics of guitar you can expect to learn, and more!    By the time I turned nine years old, I had spent six months begging my mom and dad to get me an electric guitar.
