Ray is truly a fantastic teacher. I'm learning jazz after having a background in classical piano and he is incredibly knowledgeable in both, and has been an amazing resource for theory and concepts and how to apply them in a structured and consistent way. I am so glad to have found him, he's one of the best piano teachers I've ever had.
Arlissa
Very knowledgeable teacher. Was able to quickly identify what I needed to work on/start off with. Created a plan to keep moving forward and taught me what I need to get to that next step. I had been teaching myself and he was able to add onto that next step and pick up where I left off. Can't wait to get practicing and continue my progress.

I have nothing but good things to say about my lessons with Ray, he's very easy going and he teaches you the theory behind the music as you're progressing so you get the full experience, he's a great teacher and I look forward to more lessons with him

This was my second lesson. Mitchell has made thoughtful and practical suggestions to improve my playing and he seems to know exactly where we're headed. Great lesson.
Steve
Mitchell is a fantastic teacher. I selected him because he is a pure bass teacher and not a generalist just teaching bass. I am so glad I did. I am an adult student having tried to teach myself and I can say for sure that after 5 lessons, Mitchell has set me straight and I am learning more than ever. He is enthusiastic and also makes the lessons fun. I have also signed my son up for bass lessons with Mitchell. Give it a try - Mitchell is awesome!
Tim
Working with Mitchell is great!
He is classically trained, but now spends most of his time in the world of New Orleans jazz. This means I get a teacher who knows how to teach structure and fundamentals necessary to build a solid foundation, AND style and technique for different genres. Also, he's just a really nice guy! Thanks!

Once basics are covered special attention is paid to chordal theory and how to use it. We will also work on technique as needed. The goal is to have you ready to gig in a very short time.

I enjoyed my lessons with Greg. He is very helpful, always upbeat, patient and positive. He takes things slow so that you don't feel like you have tons of things to practice. And over all he's just really nice and fun and a very good teacher to have.
Tanner
Greg is a great men also a great teacher, when i first meet with Greg for my first lesson that i known i will be learning by the great teacher.
I had played guitar in the past many, many years but for sometime in my life was so busy working, and focus on raising family but i had to put away my guitar i bought 25 years ago. finally, now i decided to learn to play my guitar again and find Greg on take lesson.com and he has been teaching me just like i am a beginner playing but i am now so happy that i am on a good hand and Greg had been teaching me playing my guitar again. so far so good. Thanks Gregory
Craig Cirbo
I took lessons from Greg when I was much younger say 12-13 for a year or more. He taught me a lot and had me playing guitar really fast, I always tried to do what he asked and he never ever got frustrated if I did it wrong or couldn't play what we were learning right away correctly!. Also all of what he taught me stayed in my head all these years some how and I kinda progressively got better and better!. I'm pretty happy with my playing and a lot of others are to!. Greg has something special about his students and teaching them to play the guitar correctly no matter what or how long it takes, he cares about you as a student. You get out what you put in ,but be patient cause it also takes time. But you'll see the difference later down the road that Greg was the right teacher for learning to play and the theory behind the guitar.....I recommend him as a great guitar teacher!. I myself take lessons from him again at the age of 38 , I was able to find him on Facebook after all these years and we do lessons via Skype, I'm a very happy student, very happy!. And I thank Greg Gladman for that!.

"I enjoyed my first bass lesson! It was nice to hear my playing and technique bounced off of someone else, especially since I've been learning by my self since I got my guitar.

The feedback that I would give is that I wish there was more of a plan for my first lesson. I was simply asked to talk about my musical experience, which is fine, but I wish I was asked to play some scales, riffs, intervals etc. Also, we didn't talk very much about knowing goals for the lesson or for music were so the lesson felt a bit undirected. But music is pretty exploratory so I might be a bit harsh."

"I always wanted to learn bass and I was referred to Kevin by a friend. She told me she’s seen him playing in bands around the area and he could definitely help you out. I started meeting with Kevin once a week and he knew how to break down the songs to help me learn them. He started teaching me the theory behind bass guitar and my scales. Fast forward a year later, I’m not confident enough to play in a band! I can’t thank Kevin enough for everything he’s done through our lessons. I always mention him when people ask me how I improved so much. Thank you Kevin!"

"I met Jesse as a fellow musician when starting a band. Though I could PLAY bass, I didn't have the knowledge to apply theory and other tools to improve my playing and speed up my learning. Jesse started teaching me how the fretboard works (other than just numbers), keys, and the corresponding modal scales, and even technique for playing better. At first I was confused and impressed by this new world, but his ability to break down each element, and apply it to your personal learning style is really beneficial to any player. He's helped transition from playing bass like a rhythm guitar to playing bass like the instrument it should be, and opened me up to many opportunities to play with his other students as well. Definitely the teacher to check out if you want to improve your playing, and know you have the drive. He will call you on it, if you haven't been practicing!"
