Look no further if your on Oahu. Theresa Strange is who you are looking for if you want to take your musicianship to the next level. A keen and thoughtful teacher, every lesson has been money well spent. 11/10 ⭐️
Levi
Theresa is a wonderful teacher. I am a beginning cello student but with 12 years of upright bass experience, and she tailors our lessons to match my classical knowledge and play style with the basics required transitioning to a new instrument. She has an incredible depth of knowledge and communicates it in a way that is easily understood and and applied, regardless of whether it's bow technique, musical phrasing, or historical in nature. It has made learning a new instrument a great joy - thanks, Theresa!

Supportive, encouraging and very relaxed. Good pace.

Gordon is an excellent teacher. The thing that stood out most about him is that he will let you learn anything you want! He doesn’t just read off a book, but asks you for what you want to play, and guides you through it. He also makes you more confident, and pushes your boundaries. The experience is highly interactive and entertaining. I have accelerated so fast through his teaching and I would highly recommend him!
Gerry S.
The reason for 3 stars is that the audio was terrible. Gordon sounded like he was in a tunnel , and I was getting feedback on my voice, it was very disconcerting and hard to understand. Difficult to learn under those circumstances. The video was just fair. Gordon is good, but the experience was not.

Online Classical Guitar Teacher

Classical Guitar:
A member of the guitar family used in classical and flamengo music, but many popular artists play it for it's warm sound and ease of playing. It is an acoustical wooden guitar with strings made of nylon, rather than the metal strings used in acoustic and electric guitars. The traditional classical guitar has twelve frets clear of the body and is held on the left leg, so that the hand that plucks or strums the strings does so near the back of the sound hole. The modern steel string guitar, on the other hand, usually has fourteen frets clear of the body and is commonly played off the hip. I always start with the basics of finger techniques, learning notes and chords, how to read, theory and soloing. Right away the student will begin to play songs. This guitar can be used for most styles of guitar playing.

This teacher misrepresented her ability to teach the C system chromatic button accordion. I don't believe that she has ever played one. I asked her before purchasing a set of classes if she knew this instrument and was competent to teach it, and she said she was.

She didn't have one, so she could never demonstrate anything I asked about. She didn't know the key layout. She didn't know the conventions for numbering fingers. She didn't know the basic home key scale pattern.

I waited until I'd finished four classes with my new teacher before writing this so I'd have a good basis for comparison. He is immensely better at teaching this than she was. It further convinced me that she never should have represented herself as competent to teach this particular instrument.

Karen is very patient & caring while teaching.

"If you have high standards, you'll be pleased

Having moved from Barcelona Spain we were interested in continuing our daughter's classical guitar lessons. He is able to connect to our daughter (age 10) and encourage her while giving her good feedback. She practices on her own (without reminders) and looks forward to Jesse's visits. You won't be disappointed."

"I couldn't have asked for a better teacher!

Blake Clifford goes beyond the 'call of duty' & really takes the time to make sure that his students receive exactly what they need. The teaching environment is comfortable & relaxed with all of the professional resources you would expect & more.

With Blake Clifford you get real professional training - he knows what he's talking about, & he gets straight to the point. In just the little time that I've been taking classical guitar with Blake, I've learned so much. He teaches skills that you can actually apply - it's not just a bunch of theory, and that helps me out a lot by getting to the real 'meat' of the training fast.

I highly recommend Blake Clifford to anyone who is absolutely serious about improving their musicianship & getting over stubborn plateaus."

"1st Lesson

My 1st lesson with Jason was very relaxed & professional. I learned more in 45 minutes than the last 5 months on my own in regards to reading music, rhythm, timing and playing the notes on the staff. He is very patient and knowledgeable. His diversity in music provides an understanding of where you are at and where you want to go with music. I look forward to my next lesson with Jason.
