I've been taking lessons from Steven for I think two years now and he's helped me so much not only in reading music but also in ear training and in my song writing. He's incredibly patient and fun to work with. He also has a really nice cat.

It was wonderful meeting Erica - our daughter Zaza enjoyed her lesson and is already asking "how many days until Tuesday"? We look forward to seeing Erica again next week for more music and fun!

I gauge success on how well my kid responds. Instead of once a week lessons he now wants twice. Somehow Erica connected with him and he now wants to practice his guitar. Thank you!

I studied music theory,ear training, music reading and jazz/funk on top of the regular curriculum. My bands have played the whiskey a go go, the Roxy, the troubadour and several other well known clubs in LA and Bakersfield. I pretty much use the same curriculum to teach that I received from MI.

Jeff is amazing on the guitar. With many years of playing he’s taken his music to another level. I have learned so much from him and learning fast as he makes it so easy. Thank you Jeff, you are the best

Jeff Pierce is friendly, knowledgeable & highly experienced. His program appears to dutifully cover all the bases, adding structure & guidance with a touch of motivational inspiration. A very positive & friendly learning environment!
Dave
Jeff is such a cool down to earth individual. He makes you feel very comfortable when learning how to play the guitar which I believe is very important as it can be a complex instrument. He is very skilled and knowledgeable about the guitar and I’m very happy to have him as a teacher. I’m loving the results so far as I can play along to some of my favorite songs.

Each lesson will consist of a unique and personalized curriculum to fit the student’s needs. This will be done at a pace that allows for confidence to be built and a complete understanding of the material. Each student is taught the basic skills of guitar so that they can become an independent and self-sufficient musician with a strong fundamental foundation. Crucial skills such as reading music, scales, various chords, and more will be taught in each lesson. Each lesson will be just as enjoyable as it is informative. After all, “pleasure in a job puts perfection in the work”. That is why I ask each Student to bring a song or piece that he/she enjoys working on. Overtime, all the skills learned will allow students to play with confidence!

What a fun way to spend our quarantine time! Michael was a great bagpipe instructor for my teenage son. He helped him to find the right equipment and made playing the bagpipes fun from the very first lesson. Thanks, Michael!

We're super impressed with Michael's teaching style. This is my son's second attempt at learning to play bagpipes. Michael makes it fun, in that he starts teaching songs right away, not only notes. He is very patient and explains what he is teaching.

"CHRIS was awesome!!! My first lesson was with a guitar that I’d had for years, he fixed the guitar so that I would have something to practice on, whilst he fixed the guitar he didn’t forget why he was there and went over notes and chords etc, After fixing my guitar we had time to go over the gchord and I pretty much had it as he was walking out the door. I’m very pleased!!!"

"Jeff is the best teacher when it comes to guitar. I've been receiving lessons from him since I was 10 and have continued the lessons over the years. Each lesson I take I get to learn something new and I am always entertained. I'm amazed at how well he teaches you every chord and technique in a simple and clear manner. He is patient and overall just an awesome person. May God bless him in his teaching career!"

"Nick has been teaching my 7 year old guitar for one year now. His excellent, progressive curriculum, patience, and allowing my son to pick some of the music has fostered a joy in his playing and even the work that goes into learning a difficult instrument. My son even "teaches" me a weekly lesson. I couldn't recommend Nick enough!"

"You can say that I'm a rookie when it comes to playing guitar. So, I decided to do something about it. I'm taking 45 minutes sessions with Nick and I have to say that he is a really talented a teacher as well as he is a musician. While having fun during the lessons, I rake in so many new tricks up my sleeve. I love his individual approach, flexibility, and creativity just to outline a couple. For the short while that I've known Nick, he's been all, a patient teacher, a talented musician, but most of all he's been an inspiration to me. My goal was to learn to read music and learn how to play the instrument more fluently. But now, the whole world of new and fascinating opportunities opened up to me because of his mentoring and support. Thank you Nick! I wish I could take longer sessions with you on a more regular basis."
