I'm a believer that almost anyone can learn to play music well, and guitar is no exception. It's something which seems difficult at first, but has a series of specific steps (like any instrument) which take the mystery out of it, and get you playing in no time! I love seeing students improve on this instrument and seeing how much fun they have once they begin to play songs they love.

Esther is amazing! My daughter enjoys her piano lessons.
Jacey
Mrs. Esther is a really kind, patient, and honest piano teacher. She helped me work through my mistakes and told me what I needed to work on in order to improve. Her way of teaching is effective and it helped me gain more knowledge about piano and the techniques of being a good pianist. She is very caring and understands when I'm in a difficult situation and she always encourages me to keep going. I enjoyed all the experiences I had with Mrs. Esther and the unique personality she had. For the past 9 years, I have learned a lot about music and the hard work that goes into playing the piano. I will never regret having Mrs. Esther as my piano teacher and the adventures I had.
Lawrence
Mrs. Esther has taught me piano over the past 9 years. Over those years, I was able to learn a lot about the innerworkings of the piano, both theory and playing. Mrs. Esther carefully taught me piano with both elegance and patience and created wonderful experiences through the community concerts that she holds. Her kindness reached me in times where I was overburdened with both the study of piano and my schoolwork. The 9 years of piano that I spent with her have been very rewarding and an experience that I will continue to cherish as I continue pianoing.

Guitar is among the most intimate performance instruments. Whether strumming it for rock 'n roll or caressing its strings for folk or classical music, it evokes an instantly recognizable emotional response. It's become the ideal instrument for expressing the vulnerability and uncertainty of love, the brief sting of agony, or any existential expression.

It's portable. It's loud enough to be heard in a crowd of voices, but quiet enough to be practiced in your bedroom. Musically its fretboard is based on the piano's chromatic scale. Its six strings accommodate both simple and complex voicing, depending on the player's skill or desired effect.

As a classically trained musician with 25 years of guitar performance experience in pop, folk, and rock music, I offer a range of styles, techniques, and comprehensive approaches to understanding and mastering this historic instrument, depending on your personal preferences. My focus is on exploration, discovery, and learner-directed lessons. My ...

I enjoyed my lessons with Greg. He is very helpful, always upbeat, patient and positive. He takes things slow so that you don't feel like you have tons of things to practice. And over all he's just really nice and fun and a very good teacher to have.
Tanner
Greg is a great men also a great teacher, when i first meet with Greg for my first lesson that i known i will be learning by the great teacher.
I had played guitar in the past many, many years but for sometime in my life was so busy working, and focus on raising family but i had to put away my guitar i bought 25 years ago. finally, now i decided to learn to play my guitar again and find Greg on take lesson.com and he has been teaching me just like i am a beginner playing but i am now so happy that i am on a good hand and Greg had been teaching me playing my guitar again. so far so good. Thanks Gregory
Craig Cirbo
I took lessons from Greg when I was much younger say 12-13 for a year or more. He taught me a lot and had me playing guitar really fast, I always tried to do what he asked and he never ever got frustrated if I did it wrong or couldn't play what we were learning right away correctly!. Also all of what he taught me stayed in my head all these years some how and I kinda progressively got better and better!. I'm pretty happy with my playing and a lot of others are to!. Greg has something special about his students and teaching them to play the guitar correctly no matter what or how long it takes, he cares about you as a student. You get out what you put in ,but be patient cause it also takes time. But you'll see the difference later down the road that Greg was the right teacher for learning to play and the theory behind the guitar.....I recommend him as a great guitar teacher!. I myself take lessons from him again at the age of 38 , I was able to find him on Facebook after all these years and we do lessons via Skype, I'm a very happy student, very happy!. And I thank Greg Gladman for that!.

"I have studied with Ahmad for almost two years now. I started as someone who had taught himself guitar, with three years of irregular practice. I knew the basic chords, bit of finger-picking, strumming, a handful of half-learned songs. Basically my learning wasn't going anywhere and had hit a plateau.

On the first class, Ahmad did an assessment of what I knew and said that we could soon have some fun. He asked me what I wanted to learn and like any young wide-eyed guitarist, I said "lead." And that's what we did.

Now, I had seen the minor pentatonic many times and had tried to learn to improvise by just playing the scale up and down. It never helped. But Ahmad showed me a path on how to improvise. I learned to apply the basic improvisation concepts of slides, hammer-ons, pull-offs, bends and rakes. Soon enough I was trying to figure out licks and creating my own.

Once I had enough of the minor pentatonic, I went on to learning some new songs. Ahmad has a huge song repository and will work with you on trying to learn a song of your choice. I also felt that if asked to pick, he would teach a song which was challenging enough. Such that you may not figure it out right away, but you would after a few days of practice.

I had always played on acoustic. Ahmad help me learn the electric as well. He guided me through the various knobs on the amplifier. Teaching me about effects pedals, whammy bars and a whole lot more.

Ahmad's teaching style is friendly and approachable. I found him flexible when it came to rescheduling classes. His studio is really nice.

I have learned a lot from Ahmad and my guitar playing has improved quite a bit. I would highly recommend him."

"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."
