I have been seeing Jeff for about 3 years. I was an old folkie - with no time to practice - for about 50 years, but finally my wife bought me some lessons when I retired. Hit it off with Jeff immediately. He really knows the music I want - which in my case is classic rock - but he can do pretty much anything you need. Still give him 5 stars!

I immediately felt at ease with Jeff and it did not take him long to figure me out and point me in the right direction. Looking forward to many more lessons with him. I wish I lived here so it could be on a more regular basis. But happy with what I CAN get. Thanks Jeff!

My Aunty is turning 80 this weekend and I decided to learn how to play Happy Birthday on the ukulele as a surprise for her. Jeff not only helped me accomplish my goal but also got me started on other songs as well. His patience and enthusiastic personality made the lessons not ony productive but personable as well!!! 2 thumbs up to an awesome instructor!!!!!

I only had Marc for a couple months (unfortunately had to move), but he is a phenomenal teacher and I recommend to anyone. He's very easy to communicate with and strikes a great balance between the technical learning you need with having fun.

First lesson. Marc was great

I only got to take lessons from Marc for a couple of months in the summer of 2016 (I had to move away for work), but he is hands down the best music teacher I've ever encountered. It's a year and a half later and I'm still benefitting from his tutelage. From beginner to advanced, you've found the right guy for the job.

Darrell helped me a lot to get a handle on my Ableton rig. I needed to set up midi tracks, locate presets to create cool sounds from plugins. Then I needed to export the audio of a couple of those tracks to import into a separate Pro Tools project. Lot of progress, thanks Darrell! -- Frank S

I'm a classical guitarist, and I'll pass on techniques I've learned to help you learn any style of music (rock, blues, punk, fingerstyle, jazz). I've been a guitar teacher for 4 years and teach all levels ages 8-65. We can work together to pick out songs you like and learn them, and/or I can help you learn with my prewritten lesson plans and method. We'll also learn some ear training if you're interested!
Can't wait to get started and get you going with some songs!

Gabrielle taught my son Victor how to play Asturias after only 10 weeks of lessons. He’s 11 years old!!! He had only been playing for two years and the other teachers we tried didn’t know how to work with him.

"Tim is awesome, he is spiritually a great person, to have as a teacher and mentor. he is very patient. If you don't understand the lesson, just don't get frustrated, let him know, and he'll go over it again in different way that you will understand him. believe me I was worried at first that I didn't speaking in guitar terms or language and which I don't have any knowledge. Tim made it easy for me to understand, and I am learning at a pace that I feel very comfortable. Amen to that."

Not only he teaches guitar lessons he give me advise for personal developments. Three major things I like about Jimmy: He is available anytime to answer questions, He records lessons for me to practice at home and a clean studio.
Finally, I strongly recommend taking classes from Jimmy and I am sure you will see the difference and enjoy his teachings."

"I love my lessons with Chris! I have no music background and have always wanted to play the guitar but never got around to making it happen. Now as I am older I think why not now?! I looked around for local lessons and found Chris's site. I loved his philosophy of how he teaches an individual based on what they want out of it! His statement of "some people just want to learn to play their favorite song" sold me! So glad I found him! It's never too late to pick up a guitar!"

The lesson started with Jeremie understanding what I already knew and then going forward from there instead of going over things that I already knew. So the time was well spent on actually learning something new. Looking forward to our next lesson."

"I took classical guitar from Dustin for over 5 years. His knowledge of music and guitar is amazing and his thorough, patient instruction got me to where i wanted to be with guitar quickly. I am sorry that he had to move, we had been talking about restarting my lessons now that my schedule has opened up. To sit in the same room and hear him play will move and inspire you to excel with your instrument. He is a master musician and character is impeccable, I highly recommend him to any prospective student."
