Liam was my teenage sons guitar teacher for a year, (would have been forever but he moved).. He put a love and understanding for the guitar which has now leaked into all kinds of other instruments my son likes to play. I am thankful we found Liam, he was always professional, punctual and efficient in actually teaching music. :)
Jeremy
I took lessons with Liam for about a year straight and then off and on whenever I could. During that time he gave me a very strong understanding of the fundamentals of the instrument and helped explain technical aspects I was curious about. He's easily one of the best guitar players I've ever heard, and if you want to hear for yourself I highly recommend checking out his social media. He plays just about every style I can think of off the top of my head and knows his fair share of music production as well. I went from a beginner guitar player to being able to play and figure out songs on my own after taking lessons with him. I cannot recommend him enough.

At 52 years old, my wife treated to lessons for Christmas. I haven't played in 30 years. Although, I have had a few lessons with several different instructors back in my 20's, I never felt any direction. I always heard 'you got it. just keep playing'. Unfortunately, I stopped as nothing made sense.
I have learned a ton from Jon in only 5 lessons. Bits and pieces are all quickly coming together. I have a long way to go, but know more already than I ever have. Jon is fun, friendly, and has a great demeanor for teaching. If he has the patience to teach me, he's the right guy for you.

Jon is understanding of the student's needs. He is friendly and made my son feel welcome immediately.
Greg
I went to Jon with absolutely no musically background or training. He has been very patient and I have been amazed at how much I have learned in just a few months. I have not only learned quite a bit about playing the guitar, but I’ve also gained a greater awareness and appreciation of music. I highly recommend him as a teacher.

I started lessons with Bill to learn classical guitar after 5 years of self-taught electric and steel string acoustic playing. My playing has improved immensely since I started working with him. Not only has he introduced me to classical guitar but he has taught me how to effectively practice to constantly improve. Bill has a wealth of experience and knowledge to draw upon and I cannot say enough good things. A++
Charles
I have been a classical guitar student of Bill's for the past 6 months. In retirement, I have decided to take what was an "off and on" affair with the classical guitar (I'm not a beginner) and, instead, commit the necessary time and energy to truly learning the instrument. These have been my first serious classical guitar lessons. Prior to these lessons, I was entirely "self-taught" which means I created a whole bunch of bad habits for myself and was not progressing at all. Bill refers to me as a "remedial" student which I think is a perfect description of my playing. Through Bill, I have learned proper technique which, in turn, has improved my tonality and musicality with the classical guitar. Bill has identified my bad habits, broken them down, shown the proper way to overcome them and makes sure I don't "back-slide" into my bad habits again. Bill paces the lessons according to ability, not covering material that's too advanced while still ensuring that the lesson is challenging. In each lesson, Bill is positive, encouraging yet kindly critical so that I know I am making progress yet always aware of what areas I need to work on. Bill has the right "make-up" for a teacher and I am pleased, and without reservation, to give Bill a 5 star rating.
Steve
I have been a student of Bill's for almost three years. Bill's teaching is characterized by clarity of expression, high standards, patience and an upbeat and pleasant disposition. He is always clear and direct when explaining the technical aspects of playing- no matter how complex the matter at hand. He holds you (and himself) to a high standard- no shortcuts- you learn to do it right. Yet he is so pleasant to be with that every minute of every lesson is truly enjoyable. Every time I leave I am ready to practice and can't wait to return.

"My daughter has been taking lessons with Mark for a little over a year. She has learned songs she likes and Mark helps build her abilities and confidence. In her words: Mark plays along with you and tells you what you’re doing well and what can be improved. He gives good tips about how to work on what you need to improve. He recommends songs to play but also asks what songs you want to play."

"Remi was wonderful for my 9 year old son's 1st lesson. The online class is very convenient for our schedule. Although it presents a slight challenge in communication, Remi was able to easily overcome this challenge by writing on a small marker board and holding those notes up to the camera for us to see. He was very patient, and we surprisingly covered a lot of information in a short period of time. I was very impressed with Remi's ability to catch my son's technical errors while attempting to play the designated exercises that he had prepared for him. My son absorbed the introductory lesson like a sponge and can't wait until the next lesson. I am very pleased with Remi and hope to see my son improve over the next several weeks."

In that time, I had lessons from Trevor in Classical Guitar, Piano, Electric Guitar (everything from pop to jazz), and I also learned a lot about music theory.

Learning Classical Guitar: Can I Use Tabs or Should I Read Music?

Whether you're brand new to guitar, or just new to classical guitar, you might be wondering, "what's the deal with tabs and sheet music?" Let guitar teacher Raymond L. clear up the fog and put you on the right path to classical guitar success... To get started, let's be sure to clearly distinguish standard musical notation from what we call nowadays "tab" notation. What is Tab? The name tab, or guitar tab, is derived from tablature, a form of musical notation indicating fingering an …
