Alex is an excellent instructor for guitar, whether the student is a beginner or an advanced player. He is very reliable and maintains a high level of expertise when it comes to teaching guitar. He continually makes my lessons so much fun. He is so talented and always takes time to answer any questions or solve any issues that might come up for me during the week as I practice.

Outstanding instructor of guitar. He goes above and beyond when it comes to teaching students how to play the guitar. He is very flexible, understanding, knowledgeable, and patient when he delivers his classes. Not only does he teach students how to play the guitar, he also does other things like teaching them how to tune their guitars, how to change keys when necessary to make a song sound better, and how to use a capo when playing the guitar. All of these are above and beyond what most teachers have taught me in the past. I really enjoy taking classes from my instructor.

Bass guitar is my main area of emphasis in my music degree. No matter if you're just starting out, or have been playing for some time, we can assess where you are as a player and build a strong foundation in various styles.

About Seth
My name is Seth and I offer private lessons for both guitar and bass guitars. Having a wide background of teaching all ages, and heavy experience with young children, I understand that every musician is in a different place. Whether you're just starting out or ready to get back into playing again, we can work together to establish what the best direction is for you.
I hold a bachelors in music performance from the University of Colorado Denver. Before involving myself with local Denver band Wildermiss and other musical projects, I was a member of the Blue Knights World Percussion Ensemble. H
aving gained that experience I was asked to instruct Rise World Percussion Ensemble where I was the front ensemble caption head. While going through school and my career I have recorded many different audio projects, as well as playing with various ensembles and bands.

Lessons can be offered both in my home at your own home within the greater Denver area!

Aaron is very patient and understanding about what you want to accomplish in your playing. He's vastly open to multiple songs and quickly picks up on the songs that he doesn't know to be able to teach you. Awesome learning experience.

Aaron has been working with my 11 year old son G since last fall, so my review is sadly overdue. I initially chose him because his musical influences seemed in line with my sons. Since then we have learned much about Aaron, and he has become a wonderful addition to our home. Our first lesson was spent teaching G about his guitar, making sure we had the right tools and listening to music. Aaron took great care to listen to my son and learn about his interests and goals. His patience is endless, and he truly has a passion for opening up students to all types of music. All of the music G has learned is something that they chose together through listening and collaboration.

Over the next several months we enjoyed watching G build on his love of music and he really looks forward to his lessons. Through this process Aaron helped us learn that G was having trouble with hand strength and so he suggested trying the Ukulele until his hands grew a bit and got stronger. Aaron went above and beyond to help us pick the right instrument for him. Since changing over, our home has been filled with the sounds of the Ukulele, and G practices more than ever. Our family is lucky to have found Aaron, and he is the perfect fit for our son.

My daughter and I both think Aaron is great. I hired him to teach my 7 year old daughter. He's patient, kind, and clearly not only knows his instruments, but also loves them. He has a quiet passion for music that really makes her want to do well.

Once basics are covered special attention is paid to chordal theory and how to use it. We will also work on technique as needed. The goal is to have you ready to gig in a very short time.

About Gregory
I have been playing music for over 30 years, and have been teaching music for almost half of that time. I have performed and recorded throughout the Midwest in a variety of cover and original bands ranging in styles from metal, rock, to R&B/Jazz and Blues. I teach these styles as well.

The most important thing for me as a music instructor is to get to know the student. I then tailor the lesson in a way that will resonate with the personality of the student. Finding the right balance of technique, theory, and fun, my goal is to have the student leave the lesson eager to go home, practice and
come back for more. All ages and skill levels are welcome.

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!.
