My first lesson was heavy on intro and establishing a practice routine consisting mainly of exercises. This traditional method is what I grew up with and I'm looking forward to learning with Jon.

Great start for our 7 yo grandson. Tony immediately appealed to his musical interests, and prepared him to learn his first song next lesson.

Tony is seriously the best music teacher I have EVER had. He is so supportive, understanding, and knowledgeable. I have learned more about music theory in the past few months that I have taken lessons with Tony than I have across a whole 5 years. The way he explains all of the new concepts is very understandable and his encouraging nature makes you feel comfortable even if you make a mistake. He also lets you learn songs that you actually want to play, making the lessons even more enjoyable. Overall, Tony has truly helped me improve and actually makes me want to practice during my free time to become a better musician. Thank you Tony!

I am in my 40s and getting back into playing after taking lessons for a year 10 years ago and quitting (like most people). Madyson is very patient and tailors lessons to what her students are into. It has been a mix of both traditional lessons along with just helping me strum my favorite camp fire kind of music making the lessons engaging and allot of fun. Highly recommend for either kids or adults! I find I make myself practice for 10 minutes each night and then 10 minutes becomes 2 hours because I am having so much fun with it thanks to Madyson's great work!
Clarisa
Mady is excellent. She is so fun to work with. She’s a really unique person and that shines through in her teaching!
Kylie
I took very basic guitar lessons years ago and promptly forgot everything I learned. Madyson was so patient with me and has helped me relearn some of what I forgot years ago! I would highly recommend her to anyone looking for lessons.

About Juan

He draws from his experience as a recording and touring rock guitarist in Colombia and Miami, his studies of East Asian music, inspired by interaction with mu

Juan went through many fundamentals of classical guitar, how to place your hands over the strings for articulation and economy of movement. Very useful.
Dawn G.
Juan is wonderful and very knowledgeable in music. He is very patient and makes you feel comfortable. I leave a lesson feeling like I am accomplished and relaxed. It nice to see progress in such a little time. I go home with enthusiasm to learn more and want practice to do so.
Chrystine R.
With a patient and intuitive approach, Juan tailors each lesson to fit not only the student’s skill level, but also desire for depth of understanding. When I first began taking lessons, I was only able to plunk a few chords and play along with a few basic songs. However, over the course of a year and a half with Juan, I gained a foundational knowledge of the classical guitar, as well as the confidence to site read and play a range of other styles of guitar music. He seamlessly integrated music theory concepts into song studies, helping me learn major/minor scales and chord shapes, and then apply this knowledge to better understand song structures and composition. It has been such a great experience learning from Juan, especially because he is both an exemplary teacher and guitar player!

From Contemporary Christian Music all the way to Heavy Metal and everything in between, I equip my students with not only the necessary skills to proficiently play most genres, but with the confidence to excel both on the stage and in the studio. With years of professional touring and recording as the guitarist of a Christian Worship band and employment as the worship leader at several different churches, I'm your guy when it comes to all things church-related. But hey, if that's not your thing, don't look away just yet as I also have 15 years of heavy metal/rock and roll experience as well as a deep love for the pop-punk and folk genres (with much experimental dabbling in the areas of blues, jazz and bluegrass). Whether you're a beginner who's still trying to get those tough barre chords down, an intermediate player who's looking to shred the neck even faster, or someone who's never even touched a guitar, I encourage you to take a step of boldness and let me help you become the best ...

About Eli

When I was a child I begged my parents to buy me a guitar, and as I grew up, year after year, I eagerly watched as each of my siblings (I have 7) received their very own "axe" on Christmases and birthdays. I waited and waited...but mine never came. Even my younger siblings got theirs before I did. S

"I have had the pleasure of playing, and practicing, with Mr. Cris over the last few years. We actually took guitar class together in high school, and even then, I could tell that he was exceptionally talented. Given his family background in music, and his desire to create wonderful compositions, it was no surprise that he chose to pursue music in his life. Recently I have needed assistance with my songwriting and I have had no hesitation in bringing my work to Cris in order to gain insight into what I may need o do in order to successfully finish my composition(s). He is well educated in music, has learned from many accomplished professionals, and is extremely hard working in his craft. And finally, Cris is very patient, insightful, and motivated, when working, and/or teaching, individuals. I would highly recommend him to anyone of all ages."
