Judy was very supportive, cheerful, and kind.

She's a good teacher . She also put up with me not knowing anything well.
Rodger R.
Started with some basics and built on that. Was very helpful in showing me tuning, proper hand positioning, and how to improve my fingering (those pesky notes). Got a lot for the first class and enough homework to keep me busy! Will be meeting again next week.

Great personality and knowledge of music, really makes the lessons very personalized, fun and interesting. Definitely a good choice!!

Perry takes the time to explain flamenco and related styles deeply and thoroughly. He also provides detailed micro-scale feedback on hand/arm placement, orientation, range and which muscle groups to engage. But more than the technical, he has an awesome vibe and makes learning guitar quite an enjoyable experience.

I have been playing electric guitar for over 30 years . From blues, rock to speed metal I have played it all.

About Greg

For the last thirty years, from the day that I got my first electric as a teenager, to my work today as an acoustic guitarist for the band, Timberwood, and currently as a teacher of more than forty students a week, my life has been devoted to the guitar. I'm an experienced veteran of the meta

Nick
My son was given a guitar by a family member and showed variable interest until Greg started to teach him - Greg has woven elements of what my son needs to learn to improve with how these elements are used by some of the biggest and best guitarists ever and really changed practice from being a chore to something that can be fun. This is the way Greg said he would teach and he’s sticking very much to it! A great instructor that my son really enjoys going to - thanks Greg!!
Robert
I was very impressed, satisfied and happy about my guitar lessons with Greg.
I'm German and booked just 5 lessons due to travel reasons. There was very vage input from me to Greg when we started (I always play the same; want to get new ideas; ...). Greg did not just provide a regular standard lesson. He focused and addressed 100%+ my desires and needs. Greg provided me very conrete and great input in several aspects to what I can do to improve my guitar playing. This was very useful to me and enabled me to move my guitar play forward. I highly recommend Greg to anybody.
Janice D.
Greg is a great teacher! In just 4 months, I have learned so much about music theory, basic chords and history of guitar. He packs a lot of info in one lesson. He is patient and encouraging. He has exposed me to many artists who play guitar. He gives me good tips on how to form the chords easier. Greg makes learning to play guitar FUN!

A few quick things about me:
• Have been teaching for 16 years
• Am a professional studio musician
• Have played in several touring bands
• Play/teach nearly all genres
• Took 12 years of lessons from a master
• Love teaching all ages and genres

Enough about me! We all know that everyone learns differently and has different strengths and weaknesses. My process is to analyze each student's unique abilities and to create a personalized learning experience for everyone. I have taught people from 5 to 83. I believe it is important to be empathetic to each person's needs, for example, I have experience teaching left-handed people, kids with Cerebral Palsy, Asperger's syndrome, people with missing fingers and other difficulties. Parents always ask me how I can be so patient with their kids, (the real secret is that I don't have to take them home ;) but on a serious note, I always remember the extreme amount of frustrating hours I put in before I got any real results. It's the least

Casey does a phenomenal job of teaching our 12 year-old daughter keys. He's very patient and is able to teach her at her pace, while still challenging her to improve. Since beginning lessons with Casey, we've seen a tremendous improvement in her ability and look forward to what she can do next!
Ireland
I grew up taking piano lessons, but it wasn't until I started taking lessons with Casey that I really gained confidence in my ability to play in front of an audience. I learned songs that I really enjoyed and that I still play six years later. I also took guitar lessons from him for a while, and I loved that he encourages you to know your instrument, to do your exercises, but also to just play what you like. His passion for music is evident in everything that he does, and he's a compassionate, knowledgeable instructor. I'd recommend him to anyone.
Seth
Casey is very encouraging knowledgeable! He made lessons fun and something to look forward to. I no longer take lessons with Casey, but now I’m pressuring a music career!

"Greg sold me my first acoustic guitar at 13 years old. It was a fender acoustic and I bought it with no knowledge and he pushed me towards an acoustic guitar he felt was quality and a great starter guitar. I taught myself for a couple of years and than my parents let me get guitar lessons When I was 16. I was really into heavy metal music, yet Greg made sure I knew the basics. His lessons were very individualized and made sure that when I was learning the basics that I knew what I was working towards. I remember one lesson he gave me a riff to work with, after I had it down he revealed to me that it was Miley's party in the USA. He showed me a song I wasn't interested in learning and taught me how I can make it into a genre that appealed to me. I told Greg that I was really interested In guitar upkeep and he taught me how he cleans guitars and does adjustments in his shop. Greg Campbell takes the time with his students and makes sure he his teaching them in what they are interested in, yet at the same time makes sure the basics are hammered home and are appreciated."
