Aiden is a wonderful instructor. He taught my 8 year old son beginners guitar. He is a knowledgeable and skilled guitar player. He is patient, kind, and flexible. I am happy with the progress that my son has made with the lessons we've had so far. From knowing nothing at all, my son understands the basics of guitar playing and can play a tune comfortably. Thank you Aiden. We recommend him to those who have kids and are looking for a great instructor.
Ryan
Aiden has been a great guitar teacher and has helped me improve considerably over my first few months with him. I've spent the last 20 years sort of knowing how to play guitar, but I was self taught and never really could figure out how to progress beyond a few chords. Aiden has provided me with the structure I need to get continually better. He has been especially attentive and helpful at correcting and improving my technique. He's always willing to work on what I find interesting or come up with something to guide me. I also really appreciate his laid-back teaching style.
Iralda G.

He’s open in whatever music you feel comfortable to play with. He adapted to your needs and he knows how far you can go. He is an expert in what he does! You’re the best Aidan!

Private Music Performance Teacher

I've been playing for about 9 years and have played in several bands. I've bee teaching for about 4 years and find its best to teach as we play rather than teach theory and then play. My personal teaching style is to show a student chords and or scales in the beginning of class, then use the rest to play around with them and then focus on the technique to play it efficiently and effectively.

About Cristopher

As a musician that has played for about a decade, I have studied and worked to become a teacher. I've played in numerous bands, have worked in studios, and have been teaching for about four years now and am always finding new ways to understand and help accomplish my students' goals.

Only our first lesson, but my sometimes shy, sometimes easily frustrated 8 yo daughter responded very well to Chris and gave the lesson literally 2 thumbs up. Looking forward to see her learn how to play!

I am an advocate for helping each individual find their own unique voice, and while building fundamentals, slowly challenging each student to think outside the box and reach goals they didn't think were possible!

She is very talented and a great instructor. She has an excellent ear and is very patient and helpful. I did not think I could ever carry a tune and all the progress I have made is thanks to her.

My daughter enjoyed her lessons very much! Lee Ann was very focused on my daughters strengths as a singer and they had a lot of fun developing her talent.

"I have had the pleasure of playing in very complex musical collaborations with Suzan G. a couple of times recently and am thrilled to find out that she is a teacher with Takelessons. I am a TL music teacher, and having seen her live and in person and discussed the theory of the music we are performing, I can highly recommend her.

Suzan is thoroughly knowledgable about music theory and composition and movement. Her piano skills are excellent especially when seen in the arena of jazz improve composition on the fly with a group of professionals. She can sight read complicated charts and sing beautifully at the same time, for songs she has never done, and these are the challenges that true musicians thrive upon.

As a TL teacher of children also, I can see that Suzan is very family friendly and cheerful, kind and helpful. All good signs of an excellent teacher! Your Kids will love her.

Way to go, Suzan, and keep up the great work!"
