Ellie
He was my band teacher when I was in grade school. I’m now going into my freshman year of college and I still remember him! He was so engaging, kind, energetic, and really cared about each individual student. I always looked forward to band in the morning and during the school day. He was definitely meant to be an instructor! :)

Fantastic. Also taught my autistic older child electric guitar; really good.

I have been playing guitar for 15 years. I make lesson plans based on each individual, so I don't teach every one the same boring songs or use the same regiment with everyone. I want to teach you what YOU want to learn.

About Jeremie

I'm a self taught guitarist who has been playing for 20 years. I have played professionally in numerous bands and ensembles ranging from jazz to folk to rock, and I've been writing music for the same length of time.

I'm a beginner at guitar and never did I think that after 3 lessons I would be playing the iconic rock songs that I know and love! Moa has an uncanny way of breaking things down and making a complex instrument easy to learn. I've throughly enjoyed every lesson thus far, and look forward to eventually becoming proficient with Moa's help!

I have been a student of Eric's for a little over 2 years. He has taught me so much about music and guitar and is an awesome teacher ! I have learned alot !!
Dennis
after Just strumming around for many years, I finally decided to learn how to play. It’s been a fun journey with Eric and he has me playing things I couldn’t imagine just six months ago. A bit of theory and a lot of repertoire my skills have improved quickly.... one of these days he will convince me to just play and not overthink!

With over 4 years of teaching experience, 6 years of gigging and playing the guitar for 14 years, I have cultivated a unique approach to teaching the guitar.

She is just learning (six weeks in) and he's been great about teaching her fun songs she knows and now he's progressed into teaching her to read music. He's great about balancing the fun with the learning to keep her engaged! I'm learning things too!"

"We've briefly tried guitar instructions at a studio and in my home and weren't really happy with either. Decided to give it another go and were very lucky to find Rebecca.
My 10 year old grandson is learning to play an electric guitar whereas I favor the acoustic. Instead of doing 2 separate half hour lessons, Rebecca let us combine them into a single hour that we take together. Doing the lessons together makes it easy to see how Rebecca makes adjustments to each person's abilities and instrument. A number of the songs in the music book are made for 3 separate guitars, which makes it more enjoyable/interesting as each one of us (including Rebecca) take turns playing a different guitar's section at the same time.
A real down to earth individual that is both joyful and serious. I keep coming up with questions regarding music and playing the guitar. Whether its part of the lesson or not; she is always provides me with an answer that is easy to understand.
I would highly recommend Rebecca as an instructor."

"I have spent one year locking myself up in my room, every day for a few hours at a time, stumbling my way to learning the guitar. On my own, I have made it far enough to be familiar with a repertoire of chords, able to learn songs and even develop the mindset for habit forming. But after one year I felt my own limits and decided to discard my ego and find a teacher.

From his profile here I could tell that Juan was not only a skilled musician, but a keen and pensive instructor. After a single session Juan was able to properly asses my abilities and my shortcomings and tailor-designed an approach that matches my personal and musical nature. He uses my strong affinity for technique and uses that to discourage my hesitancy toward theory. He has a comfortable and approachable presence where mistakes and flaws are encouraged as learning footstools. With humble discipline he pushes me to -want- to be better.

With Juan I am absolutely confident in not merely becoming an apt guitarist, but a genuine musician."

"Fantastic teacher! No regrets.

My almost 15 year old son, Braden has been taking weekly lessons from Jordan since the beginning of this school year and has learned so much in these few short months! He came to Jordan knowing how to read music and with 3 years of middle school band (trumpet) experience but knowing nothing about how to play guitar. He spends 30 minutes a week with Jordan. In that 30 minutes weekly, Jordan has taught him how to not only play the instrument but also how to do so for the specific purpose Braden is wanting to learn it - leading worship in youth group and someday maybe "big church". Jordan is very good at not only teaching but he always encourages Braden and gives him positive feedback and affirmation. However, at the same time, when he sees that Braden hasn't quite picked up on something or needs some tweaking or correcting, he doesn't hesitate to kindly do so.

We have a very complicated family schedule. Braden plays baseball, is in choir at school, and we are very involved in church as well as other family things. Jordan has been very flexible with us when we have had to occasionally move our lesson at times for various reasons. Very professional.

NOTE: Jordan truly has been a God-send. Braden loves playing guitar and all that Jordan has taught him. However, as awesome as Jordan is, he is NOT a miracle worker. Braden puts in a lot of time on his own practicing all that he learns during his lessons. You must be willing and committed to doing your "homework" in order to get the most out of your time with Jordan.

And most importantly, Braden would say, "He's cool." ;)"
