I've taken guitar lessons from a few teachers and Dan is the best fit I've ever had. He is very patient and does a fantastic job of tailoring lessons to individual needs. He clearly loves to play music and is very thoughtful about how he shares this knowledge in his lessons. He never fails to encourage me as a guitar player and reinforces a 'can do' attitude. His positive and calm demeanor also make for a fantastic instructor. Thank you, Dan.

Making music is such an incredible creative outlet and songwriting allows you to bring your own story and individuality to the music that you make. In lessons with me, I will give you the building blocks to expand on your songwriting and create interesting and complex songs. We will work with various accompaniment styles in your instrument of choice to move beyond simple chords and structures. We will use music theory to understand how to create songs and melodies that work harmoniously and to build upon the base of a loose song structure, and we will learn about lyrical flow and how to create beautiful lyrics that roll off the tongue rhythmically. Once we have built a song from the base up, or if you already have a finished song, then we can work together to analyze it and improve on it through these techniques and create a beautiful finished piece! I also have experience with recording and producing music, so I can teach you to bring your song to fruition in a polished and ...

It was only our first lesson together but I thoroughly enjoyed it. Loralee made the experience relaxing and fun. More than just learning the notes, Loralee teaches you to express the emotion and passion in a song that comes out so beautifully in a guitar. Wonderful guitar teacher. 5 stars

Carla's teaching technique was perfect for me. I have played the guitar for longer than I care to admit and even I was tired of hearing my same old stuff. She incrementally moved me forward line by line, measure by measure to where I now have several fingerpicking style numbers in my portfolio.

Playing for my own enjoyment is now enjoyable once again.

My lessons were online and very effective - when I got stuck, Carla would send me a sample audio clip of her playing the difficult part which was a godsend for me in how I learn new musical things.

I highly recommend Carla and her Carlalology method of guitar teaching. You won't be disappointed.

Kyle K has a unique teaching style. His Ableton Live knowledge has no bounds. In just five lessons he talked me through most of my usual brain-fog to help me understand, in the simplest terms, how to use Live to record music and use Midi to enhance your work. Super, Super man, Kyle is. I highly recommend Kyle if you need a teacher. John G.
