Veronnica P.
Practical, efficient, patient, supportive. Matthew is able to assess quickly and keep things progressing forward while still highlighting fundamentals. Great for adults. Gentle for those on the lower end of confidence with an instrument.
Kevin C.
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!
Tejas A.
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!

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!

As a young female, I was apprehensive about choosing a male teacher that teaches in his home. However, Paul has been professional and I have not had any concerns since meeting him and working with him. He is a well-planned, experienced teacher who artfully progresses students from week to week in a manner that is constructive and fun. In only 5 weeks I have learned more about playing guitar and guitar theory than I would have thought. He has been attentive to my goals and it is precisely the experience that I pay for.

I have just started guitar lessons with Stan and the lessons are going very well. It's exciting to be learning note reading which is something I have always wanted to do. Stan is thorough and clear in his instructions and I look forward to each lesson. I feel lucky to have Stan as my teacher.

Stan is very knowledgeable about singing, and he teaches more than just voice lessons. It seems like he looks for the best in you as an artist, and try to take it to another level. I'm a new student of his, and it's been great so far. Looking forward to the weekly lessons.

"My son has taken guitar lessons from William for 8 years and I cannot recommend him any higher. I am proud to say that not only is my son a remarkable guitar player due to Williams teaching, he is a better young man. William has been such a positive influence and has become a dear family friend. He teaches guitar and respect and opened our family up to the wonderful world of music in the Phoenix area. I'm happy to share a photo of William, my son and I at a classical guitar concert at ASU. Spend your money wisely and hire William"

"Fantastic teacher. Aaron is great at identifying where you're at in your guitar journey and applying your own taste and preferences in music to the lessons and what you're learning. He also works a lot on ear training and connecting ear and mind to the instrument. If you're looking for someone who will help you tune your ear to the guitar, help you identify notes and scales, learn the songs you love, and all while learning theory and technique then Aaron is a great teacher for you."

I'm a 25 year old teacher and decided I wanted to start taking guitar lessons during my first summer off. I looked online and found David through Take Lessons reviews and am SO glad I did. He is such a fantastic teacher, making lessons fun and relaxing after a long day. After just a little over a year, I have learned such a wide range of skills thanks to David's willingness to develop a program filled with variety.

"Lars has a gift of teaching guitar. Actually, I think he loves playing and sharing that love of music with others and it shows. He instructs my 5 year old (who has the music bug). Lars has a unique way of teaching him and keeping him wanting to learn more. One example, of many, is as he teaches my son new cords and rhythms he plays music with him. While my son does rhythm he does a riff. The effect is that my son calls it "band practice." It's amazing to how Lars has made it fun and made him want to practice. Lars also always take time to show me what to work on with my son during the week. You rock Lars!"

Grant keeps the lessons fun and interesting by choosing songs that they already enjoy to learn, while teaching fundamentals at the same time. He is patient when they may be having an "off" day, and he is extremely encouraging and positive in every single interaction. My boys think he's fun, and they've learned a lot from him."
