I don't usually write reviews cause I am always afraid they'll sound fake (because my complements always sounds super corny), but after reading this disclaimer, please know that this is as sincere review from a very very pleased student, who decided to write this because It's is the best way to repay someone that completely went out of his normal lessons activities to help me out with my very specific requirements.

I rate Sven 5 stars because aside from being a very educated (musically and socially speaking) person, he also welcomes you into his class with a mix of kindness and funny personality super willing to teach you but at the same time wanting to push you and get the best out of you.

I was very impressed by how much knowledge he always has in his hands, with his wonderful credentials but mostly with how motivating it was to be learning from someone you feel knows what he is doing, and because of that, earns your respect and makes you want to work harder and make the best out of the lesson.

As I mentioned before, I went to Sven with the very specific goal of preparing my portfolio to apply to my dream music school, and not only he gave me the confidence to arrange my existing material, he motivated me to create new material.

Not only I completed my task but I gathered months of knowledge in a matter of 2 weeks.

Very happy and thankful to have had the opportunity to study and work with him.
Super recommended as a teacher, and very cool person :).

Elizabeth is excellent at detecting areas for improvement!

Elizabeth is patient, kind, and does an excellent job coming up with analogies and exercises for her students. She always remembered what I liked to sing and what worked best for me and was unfailingly encouraging and positive. Not only is she great at what she does, but she always managed to bring a smile to my face. She is more than a great teacher and singer, but also a great person and mentor.

So incredibly patient and knowledgeable!
Eric D.
The first lesson was successful. My particular background in piano is unique, and my needs are atypical as well. I thought Thomas assessed my abilities, lack of abilities, and goals well and quickly. He started me on a different perspective on looking at music (reading the staff) that seems very helpful. I'm encouraged.

I am very blessed to have been taught by amazing violin teachers here in the US, in Colombia, and in Argentina. I have played violin for 13 years and enjoy playing a variety of genres including, but not limited to, classical and fiddle. My desire is to help you improve in all aspects of your violin playing!

"Kirk was my first guitar teacher, and helped me develop and cultivate my raw desire to play the instrument. His open, laid-back approach and flexible schedule made my learning experience enjoyable. The only complaint I would have, is that Kirk does not really enforce persistence; practicing a phrase or entire piece with me until I get it perfect, but that might just be a personal preference. Overall a patient, enthusiastic, down-to-earth guy who's generally fun to be with, and even more fun to learn guitar with."

How to Play Guitar Chords in Different Positions up the Neck

Chords are the foundation of all of those guitar riffs you love so much. Here, guitar teacher Kirk R. walks you through the basics of guitar chords and the importance of knowing how they're constructed... Guitar is an amazing instrument, not only because of all that it can do, but also because of how great it can sound when not doing much at all. One of the ways that guitar is most often heard is by strumming the standard chords that beginner guitarists learn. However, I often inter …
