Lars is an awesome instructor. Very knowledgeable and also very articulate with his instructions. I highly recommend him. I am an absolute beginner and yet he was able to share so much in the very first lesson itself! He also makes learning fun.

I appreciate Marc’s knowledge, professionalism, and teaching methods. I also appreciate his practice of social distancing and mask wearing. He was thorough, good-humored, and patient during my lesson.
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.

I deeply care about each and every one of my students. I believe in the power of learning an instrument in someone's development as a part of their education and providing meaning in their lives. I tailor the lesson to each student's needs and interests. There are so many ways to conceptualize music and theory and I am dedicated to making sure each student has a strong foundation that works for them. I am interested in making the student a better musician, not just a guitarist, so hopefully they will one day be able to teach someone else.

Steven is an extremely well versed and educated guitar teacher. Both in person and online, Steven managed to meet the interests and push the knowledge of music notation no matter what style. My son became a confident player in a short amount of time due to Steven’s vast knowledge and experience. As a 20+ year schoolteacher myself, I really appreciate his student connection and teaching style. An all over excellent experience.

Micheal is the most gifted music teacher that I’ve ever worked with.

Micheal helped me grow and gain confidence as a guitar player, songwriter, and singer.

If you want to get better at the guitar and all things music then I would highly recommend working with Micheal.
Stefan
Michael has been a fantastic teacher--I've been working with him for almost three years and I've seen my skills improve measurably. His teaching skills are well above average, he's got a good home studio setup to make remote learning easier, and takes input from his students so they can better aim at their goals.

One of the best instructor I ever had. His skills are undisputed one of the best. He can teach you anything that you want and his knowledge in music is amazing. Worth every single dollar for the lesson.

Legends of the stage were always surrounded by Guitarists who WOWED the crowd with their abilities. Les Paul, Chuck Berry, Hendrix, Van Halen all performed feets of amazement that left you smiling as you left their performance.

Playing guitar not only allows you to imagine you are one of the legends - but actually creates a sense of calmness and fulfillment when your able to surround yourself in your own created sound.

I travelled to Los Angeles at the end of the 1980's to become a "legend". I was fortunate to be in a number of bands. I'm a self taught guitarist that learned the instrument and stage attitude that was needed for the crowd. I never reached the legendary status but the love of guitar will always be there for me.

I hope the love of guitar will be there for you too.

"I was looking for someone to teach me how to play lead guitar. Greg provided needed educational aids to help. He helped me get an insight in what it could be and what I needed to do to get there. Unfortuanately, (or fortunately), my daughter was doing a guitar camp of Greg's and decided she wanted to learn more so I gave her the lessons. She has been taking lessons with Greg for quite a few years now and has accomplished more than I. She is better than I am now. A dad could not ask for more."

"I've had three lessons with Steve and I'm really impressed with his knowledge and patience. Steve and I are working on keeping me focused and having me learn how to read music. I do know how to play the guitar already I just lack certain foundational things that I believe will help my playing. I feel like I have a great guide to teach me not only how to play more efficiently but also the why behind it i.e. Music Theory."

"Well they say you get good things late in life such is the case with jim rupperto.
I’ve studying with jim now for 6 yrs i’m 63 always wanted to play the classic lead guitar players page, frampton, clapton etc after going through 8 guitar teachers finally found jim at this age and its been the most rewarding experience of my life I’ve learned so much from jim its unimaginable I’m at a level I thought I would never reach composing my own music learning music theory which I had a good handle but Jim brings it to another level. I really don't know what to say, but i will say this if your young don't waste time see jim immediately for an experience you won't forget. I will definitely continue to study with jim, because I know theres even more to learn and I really enjoy our sessions together they are very stimulating and rewarding. thanks for your time palm"

"I've been taking lessons with Jonah for 6 years now (4th-10th grade) and the experience has been amazing! With Jonah's help, I have learned so much about the guitar, both in technical aspects and in simply "jamming." Jonah is always very patient, kind, encouraging, and his passion for music very clearly shows in his teaching. Every lesson I take is very enjoyable, and I always come out of the lessons feeling like I have made good progress on whatever it was we were working on that week. Whether you wish to learn about complex music theory and lead guitar (like I am currently doing), or just want to learn how to play a few songs, Jonah is a perfect choice as a teacher. Additionally, Jonah is very communicative and flexible with timing. Whenever I need to cancel or reschedule a lesson for whatever reason, Jonah responds to my messages quickly and is almost always able to find another day that week for our lesson to take place on. 5 stars, fantastic teacher, I highly recommend Jonah!"
