I had a great lesson with Paul! I felt like he took the time to listen to my music goals and provided me with the tools and techniques to get there. Looking forward to future lessons!
James J.
I cannot say enough good things about paul. First, despite having so many years of playing, he doesn't judge or look down on you for not having the same level of knowledge he has. Instead - he is able to communicate concepts, both basic and advanced, to you in a way that you can understand. Second, he caters to you in order to achieve the goals you want to achieve, not the ones he thinks you should have. Lastly, he's clearly passionate about playing, and music in general. he's a great guy to chat about, seems really down to earth, and goes above and beyond in order to make the most of the lesson.

I cannot say enough good things about paul. Highly recommend you take his lessons!

I have been learning tenor banjo (Irish tuning) from Matt. Although I'm a complete beginner, Matt has been a very patient teacher. He balances lessons between learning songs and music theory. His wit and humor make every lesson enjoyable.
Sydney
I've been taking lessons from Matt for more than 8 years now since I was young and he's super friendly and encouraging! Highly recommend as he has experience with many different areas of guitar and that offers freedom to learn whatever you want.
Luke Lehman
Matt is able to spot small things that make a big difference in a musician's journey no matter how far along they are. His demeanor puts his students at ease, and always encourages and builds up. I'd recommend Matt to anyone, at any level, wanting to grow as a musician!!

I absolutely loved taking lessons from James. I was just coming off of a long break from acting when I found him, and I’m so thankful that I did. He gave me the confidence boost that I needed to push onward in my training. Since he has experience in the industry, he was able to tell me (truthfully) what I need to expect when my career takes off someday. That aside, we read through screenplays, did some accent work, improved a bit before every class, and talked about the power of positivity/confidence. I learned a little bit of everything from him. If you’re looking to get started on your path to an acting career, James is definitely your guy! He’ll do whatever he can to prepare you for your crazy journey through the industry.

Where do I start, Mr. Walsh is an amazing coach and even better person. His classes extend beyond what he is teaching you, with life insights and showing you how to free your mind and be more positive on a daily basis.

I like to make learning an instrument fun and easy to fit into your schedule!

If you're an adult finally getting around to learning your dream instrument or a child following your passion of playing music I tailor your lessons specifically to you. We look at what you want to play, pick specific songs that you want to learn, and learn the techniques you need to play these songs. It sounds simple, but it's so effective and much more fun to learn this way!

Jon
Extremely knowledgeable teacher. I wanted to understand the music theory, not just how to memorize chords. James is a great instructor for this because his whole approach is understanding the why, not just the how. Also very flexible and available for his students.
James
Solid knowledge and good guidance on theory and exercises to develop fretboard strength.
Kevin
As someone who came in with little to no experience playing an instrument, Jimmy was the perfect start for my musical journey. He taught me not only the fundamentals of the bass guitar, but also the fundamentals of music in general, which I can carry with me as I develop as a musician. Highly reccomended.

"Where should I start?!?! I heard about trey via mutual friend and the rest is history! I’ve been playing for about 3 or so years now and want to advance my playing to become a dominant figure in the country music field. I found the answer. Treys knowledge on the fretboard was uncanny to the numerous quantities of other teachers I’ve had previously. Not only were the lessons, organized and meticulously detailed, they were extremely easy to comprehend and apply to my playing capabilities. I would highly recommend to any that are looking for a fun teaching environment, someone to drive you towards success on the guitar, and also, a potential catalyst to make money pursuing your passion. Thanks trey!"

"I've been working with Ahmad for a little more than 2 years. I'm one of those folks that had the intention to learn guitar for many years, but never got over the hump. The Summer that I started taking lessons with Ahmad, it really took off for me. He's fantastically talented and skilled, but he makes it clear that his abilities came with a ton of work, and he gives you a system to get the best results out of your own practice time. He'll work with you on any song, and seems to have a taste for just about any genre of music (especially if its got some good guitar). He'll teach you some theory and get you to read music, but patiently diet this out while recognizing your excitement to learn songs (at least, this is what I'm putting him through, and I imagine others would to). He'll give you practical drills for learning scales, chords, rhythm, etc., and find ways to overlay them so you can start to stitch things together. "Putting it all together" is still a work in progress for me, but I've been pretty happy with the results over the past 2 years, and I've iteratively "ratcheted up" my expectations for where it can all go, heavily due to Ahmad's encouragement. I hope to keep getting lessons from him for a long time!"

"I had the pleasure of having Adam instruct me the basics of acustic country guitar for a few months. By the end of the lesson , I was able to play three songs from start to finish and was really happy about that! Adam is patient and skilled and I would definitely book him again for another session."

"I have been taking guitar lessons with Ahmad Since 2011. Music has always been important to me and my lessons with Ahmad have been a continual source of inspiration and joy. I love Ahmad's musical philosophy and regardless of what I'm interested in he is always able to help me better myself. I continue to be very busy in my life but always find myself coming back to music. Through taking lessons with Ahmad I have been able to achieve many of my musical goals and know that if I keep practicing I will be able to achieve even more of my goals.

Ahmad is extremely talented, intelligent, and friendly and is always there to support me in whatever new musical concept I wish to learn next. He can help anyone looking to better themselves in a wide variety of areas regardless of the style of music you are interested in. I have been studying country and jazz with him primarily, as my goal is to be able to write my own music and put together a band some day. I have no intention of stopping music lessons with Ahmad as they continue to be something I look forward to every week. Anyone would be lucky to have such a great teacher."

"After working to live for many years, and after purchasing all the books, apps, and YouTube channels that seemed promising, I could never find the approach/perspective that could make the process of learning/playing the guitar not seem like an impossible amount of effort at the end of my day.

I've always wanted to be a musician, but it seemed impossible now that I turned 30 and had a corporate job. Eventually, I bought a new guitar, thinking it would my catalyst. 6 months passed and it had only become a talking piece in first dates, so I decided I needed to look for a musical aficionado.

Walking into Francesca's Studio, I felt immediately like I was in the right place.

In what I thought would take weeks, the 45 minutes I scheduled with her, we were playing and singing to some of my favorite songs.... I can't even explain how great this made me feel. I suddenly felt like I could actually achieve this bucket list dream of mine.

Francesca clearly has a talent in helping others pursue their musical dreams, and I'm excited to continue working with her to realize mine."

"Playing the guitar has been on my bucket list for a long time and I finally started taking lessons. I am so happy my first try was with Ahmad. I have been with Ahmad about a year and half, maybe more. Ahmad has so much knowledge and experience I get a really deep instruction from him, from chord formation and music theory and primarily practical practice learning my favorite songs.
Ahmad is relaxed and kind and that goes along way too."
