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

My students not only learn to play the guitar, but learn "why they are doing what they are doing!" I teach all ages and I am very patient. We can work as fast or as slow as you like. I believe lessons should be informative and fun at the same time. I teach each students the basics of note reading, chord theory and scales as these subjects relate to the guitar. I use varoius method books like Hal Leonard, The FJH Music, as well as method books for children.

My 13 year old daughter is taking lessons from Lin and says “she’s a pretty cool lady. I really like her”. That’s a pretty hard compliment to get from a teenager. Lin is fun and has made learning guitar a pleasure and something my daughter looks forward every week. I would highly recommend her!

"Richard was amazing! Always a joy to have him in the house. He was always on time and well prepared for our daughter's lessons. He also kept the lessons entertaining for her. Our daughter learned a lot and definitely improved quite a bit during the time he worked with her. We would highly recommend Richard to any parent with a child interested in learning and playing guitar."

"Max is a superb guitar instructor! Each of his lessons are tailored to the individual needs and wants of his students. Tablatures are prepared in advance and available when you arrive at your next session. Strong emphasis is placed on playing technique, and Max is always willing to play each phrase or passage at a slower speed. For my money, there is no better guitar teacher, than Max."

"First off Kimberly is AWESOME. Did I say Kimberly is AWESOME! Just making sure I said Kimberly is AWESOME.

Kimberly is a PROFESSIONAL MUSICIAN!

Teaching is her profession. She is devoted to it. She has chosen to be a teacher. She isn’t teaching because she isn’t good enuf to make money another way. She does it because she enjoys passing on her music experience and knowledge while giving her stability and a life in music too. This means she is totally professional. She shows up on time. She is prepared, communicative and focussed on you the student.

Kimberly’s professionalism extends to her way of doing business too. She has well thought out, reasonable rates and payment plans. Her online business is straightforward and user friendly.

Being one of her Online students (I live in Australia) she and I depend on Skype technology for our lessons. She is IT savvy. I am not saying she is a computer whiz…(maybe she is) but she has the right equipment for the job of online teaching and can give basic advice to those who want to join her online. She has students from as far away as Japan I think. So the technology works.

Kimberly is a GREAT MUSICIAN!
Notice I said Musician not just a Great guitar player
If you have been trying to find a music teacher you know that great guitar players do not necessarily make great guitar teachers.

Kimberly is BOTH!!

Her Knowledge and Experience as a Musician spans Jazz, Blues, Fusion and Classical genres.

Having all that knowledge and chops you might think she has an ego the size of the empire state building! She doesn’t. In fact there are many lessons between she and I where she didn’t even pick up the guitar. If you are like me you may have gone into many a guitar store and asked to play a cool guitar. The girl comes over and takes it off the wall for you and plugs it in…but before she hands it to you plays some wild riff 8 bars long and THEN gives you the guitar. I just don’t like that kind of showing off….Kimberly doesn’t show off. Stevie Ray Vaughn said something about his brother Jimmie Vaughn, “When I play I play 90% of what I know; when Jimmie plays he plays 10% of what he knows”. That’s Kimberly….from Blues, Metal, Classical she has the chops but doesn’t shove them down your throat but if you need them …she has them!

Kimberly is very very busy. But when you are with her she is not thinking about her next lesson she is focussed on you.

Kimberly understands Music and how to put students and music together.
The guitar is her main instrument but Kimberly can play and teach several instruments including the drums.

Kimberly is ALWAYS practicing and expanding her experience of Music she is not just a country player or a snobby jazz player.

Kimberly is a self-proclaimed overachiever. That means that even though Kimberly is very very talented she has had to work through musical concepts herself (they didn’t come easy). This is a big plus for students because Kimberly can totally relate to people who are learning. No matter what level of musicianship you are at Kimberly understands and supports your struggles and emphasises your triumphs. Plus she welcomes the sceptical student, “Ok Kimberly why in gods name do I need to learn this??”

I am a slow learner, an overachiever and generally muddle headed. Musical concepts don’t come easily to me at times. I memorise things slowly and get confused and lose focus easily due to my ADD. Many teachers I have had in the past would get frustrated with me. Kimberly just smiles or laughs WITH me and backs up and takes another approach. Kimberly has a variety of tools at her disposal for teaching the same concepts. What this means for students is that she is very adaptable to personal needs, attitudes and ways of learning. If I am not getting something she is trying to get across she dips into her chops bag and pulls out another approach….amazing. If I need her to repeat an explanation 5 times she will do so with a smile on her face…really.

And what is really cool about her is her smile. Kimberly actually smiles at you and makes you feel special and understood.

Kimberly is a wise teacher. More wise than her years. So wise that she knows when NOT TO TEACH!! She wont let you flounder or get stressed. As she gets to know you as a student she knows when you are working something through out loud or in your head and she will just be SILENT. That is a very profound gift of a GREAT TEACHER…appropriate SILENCE.

Kimberly is not only a great music teacher and player Kimberly is a Great PERSON!!

I am a very very discerning person when it comes to friendships and close personal relationships. I can tell you without a doubt I like being in her presence.
Kimberly is a Professional but with a very casual laid back attitude. She is not only inspiring but Kimberly is fun to be around. Which makes each lesson more of a sharing of knowledge time rather than a chugging through gruelling wrote rudiments time.

I am really stoked that Kimberly is not only my music teacher but Kimberly is my FRIEND.

I have been taking lessons from her for 10 months now and every Saturday I am excited to see her and talk to her.
If you have had difficulty finding a music teacher I definitely recommend you give Kimberly a try!!

Did I say Kimberly is awesome!!

10 Extremely Influential Guitarists Who Were Not Technically Great

You don't have to be a virtuoso guitarist to touch people's hearts with your music! Guitar teacher Samuel B. shares a few of his favorite great-but-not-that-great famous guitar players... Towards the end of Johnny Cash's autobiography, you'll find the following paragraph: As to my musical future, my prospects look good. I can whack on a guitar as incompetently as I could a year ago, probably more so. I can sing just as well, or as badly, as I ever could. And I've got more songs trying …
