Really great stuff !!
Ashleigh S.
It was only a first lesson but I can already tell I'm going to be taking more lessons with Daniel. He's very knowledgeable, patient, and dedicated. He detailed a specific plan for me to work on that isn't too rigid or boring, I'm looking forward to relearning the flute with him.

Great 1st lesson! Looking forward to continuing and learning more

Matt taught me for a 3 month period and helped me drastically with learning how to improvise guitar solos. I can't thank Matt enough for his help in helping me with a rather unorthodox time to start getting lessons. Each week he told me to bring 3 songs with a guitar solo I would like to learn in different genres and each week we broke down the solos for me to practice and gather their techniques. Thank you so much Matt!

My 9 year old son had his first session yesterday, and he loved it. Matthew is great, responsive and especially patient! My son is looking forward to having more sessions!

Chrissy was incredibly helpful in determining how I learn and then devising a series of lesson plans that help me learn in the easiest and fastest manner. It's been great so far and I expect to make quick progress because of her skills and personality.
Joseph A.
Chrissy is a very competent and understanding teacher. As I wasn’t a typical student for her, she quickly changed her lesson structure and tried to cover content in different musical genres. She was patient with my progress and encouraging. I think I learned quiet a lot of information and hope to continue my lessons hopefully in the near future.

Want to impress all the girls with your skills? Do you get envious every time a guy named Chad starts strumming Wonderwall at Suzy's backyard bonfire? Well then I've got GOOD NEWS for you! You can be better than Chad with a few simple steps, and I'll show you how!

Want to just learn chords and play simple songs to impress your parents who have never been proud of you? I'm your guy!

Want to learn in depth music theory and become a huge snob that can't enjoy anything on the radio? I'm your hook up!

Whatever you want to learn, I can give you the tools to succeed! (At least, more than Chad...)

Fair priced lessons with a hint of comedy, what else could you ask for?

Brody was there at my most important formative years as a guitarist. His ideas and methods took what I had learned on my own and helped me turn it into something cohesive and musical. I would highly recommend lessons from Brody.

I work with the student to develop a curriculum based on their musical interests and my own teaching pedagogy. I strongly feel that for young musicians to own their education, they must have a say in what they play. Assigning method books and mindless etudes to practice doesn't have nearly the same effect asking them "Ok, what kind of music do YOU like? What do you want to PLAY? What do you want to LEARN?".

I believe that students learn best when they are invested in a subject, and the best way to get them invested is to individually get to know each one, speak to them on their level, and get them playing music they're interested in.

About Jon

I'm a professional performer, educator, and recording artist. I received my Masters in Music from New Mexico State University, and my BA and BME from the College of Wooster in Ohio. Students can expect to improve their technique and performing repertoire within a matter of weeks. We will collabo

Jon is great! Initially I was concerned he was using a lot of the time assessing, but his suggestions were SO pertinent that I now appreciate that he spent a lot of time upfront to know me, my goals and my current level. I can tell his advice will be fruitful!

Hi! I am very excited to start you off on your guitar journey. I have been teaching music for six years and am passionate about giving students an effective and engaging musical education. In guitar lessons, we will be learning the names of the strings, chords, strumming patterns, musical theory techniques, and fingerpicking. We will spend part of the lesson working on and learning the techniques mentioned above, and the other part of the lesson learning songs of your choosing.

I am looking forward to teaching you!

The 10 Best Guitar Soloists of All Time | Solos and Guitar Tricks

As with any top 10 list, ranking the best guitar soloists is not an easy feat. Guitar solos are incredibly subjective, and what pleases one fan might make someone else plug their ears.
