I have been taking lessons with Frank for several years and I think he is an excellent instructor. He has helped me have confidence in my abilities and is patient when I get frustrated. He has been able to teach me about music theory in such a way that it is understandable. I have been to some of his performances and he is a talented musician as well as instructor.

I have just started guitar lessons with Stan and the lessons are going very well. It's exciting to be learning note reading which is something I have always wanted to do. Stan is thorough and clear in his instructions and I look forward to each lesson. I feel lucky to have Stan as my teacher.
Samuel K.
Stan is very knowledgeable about singing, and he teaches more than just voice lessons. It seems like he looks for the best in you as an artist, and try to take it to another level. I'm a new student of his, and it's been great so far. Looking forward to the weekly lessons.

Stan is obviously both knowledgeable and talented but he is also a very good teacher and will tailor your lessons not only to your ability but also to your own personal goals

For beginners we will begin by learning the simple/core chords that are most frequently found in popular songs. Upon learning the chords we will move onto transitioning between chords and learn some basic tunes and simple strumming patterns. After that we will begin with more advanced chords which will allow you the chance to play a much larger variety of songs. Once those chords have been mastered students will begin to learn more advanced strumming patterns and transitions between chords, along with how to read sheet music and tablature.

Enjoyed the first lesson a lot! We spent time going over basic open chords, different ways to finger them and then we worked on transitioning between them. Michael was very patient and encouraging. We also touched on some basic music theory... really ooking forward to the upcoming lessons!

"Excellent

I started taking classes with Eric in hopes of becoming a better guitar player. The first thing I noticed about Eric was his cool rocker style and his charming smile. Eric is professional, reliable, and patient. One thing I truly appreciate about Eric is he works with you at YOUR pace. I have never seen him show any signs of frustration while teaching me and his flexible schedule has been really good for a full time college student like myself. Overall Eric is a great musician and an even better teacher. I would recommend Eric to any of my friends or family."
