Zack is jazz guitar wizard! Not only is he amazing with the instrument, he’s also great at explaining new concepts, breaking things down into small, digestible pieces and encouraging students to explore their own musical interests. I’ve learned so much and have really enjoyed my time studying with him! Highly recommended!

I recently began singing again after a year and was very unconfident in my voice and my ability to improve. Albino was the perfect instructor for someone like me because of his patience and positivity. He was able to point out issues with my singing technique or provide feedback in a very positive way, without seeming critical. Whenever I was confused about something, he would work with me non-stop until I understood. Albino inspires confidence in all his students, and I highly recommend him as a teacher!

Great teacher! We were so happy to have found Alex.
Leander
Alex is a terrific instructor, who adjusts lessons based on what the student wants to accomplish. For example, my goals include learning the instruments (baritone uke in octave mandolin tuning and concert uke in mandolin tuning), fingerpicking, playing both melody lines and chords, being able to determine what chords to use without sheet music. So we work on music theory and ear training a lot, as well as learning tunes. Very good instructor who is both flexible and knowledgeable...highly recommend him to others.

Online Guitar Teacher

Hello,
My name is Kyusup or "Chris" and I'm a singer-songwriter, pianist, guitarist, bassist, producer, and sound engineer. I'm completely self-taught in all of the above mentioned categories for over a decade. I know exactly what you really need to know and all the questions you'll have.

I don't make you do tedious homework, exercises, and sheet reading. (I can also read music but I believe its only important for documenting, not as much for being creative. I've also majored in popular music studies, jazz performance, and sound engineering in order to justify the knowledge I've accumulated prior.

I write, perform, produce, mix/master and distribute all of my own music so all of that knowledge comes intertwined with the practicality of the knowledge that I will teach you.

I was glad I choose to do my lessons with Kyusup, he was very patient, knowledgeable and able to explain concepts very clearly. With me having no experience with the piano, I was worried I wouldn't understand anything. Kyusup is very attentive and was quick to judge my level of knowledge and take from there. Having online lessons via video calls, made everything so easy by being able to work from the comfort of my own home. He is straight forward and organized so everything felt like a breeze and was very easy to learn.

Working with Kyusup was very easy and informative. With me having no experience when it comes to the piano, he really took the time to understand what I wanted to get out of the lessons and was quick to judge my level of knowledge and take it from there. We did the lessons via video call which was very convenient for me. I am so glad I choose Kyusup, as he was very patient, knowledgeable and able to explain concepts very clearly. I feel if there were any doubts, or questions he was always able to clear them up and explain which made everything so work so smoothly.

"I highly recommend taking guitar lessons with Ahmad. I've had instructors in the past who I realized weren't the best match for what I was I was trying to accomplish and the first lesson gave me the space to feel out if Ahmad was going to be a good match for me! After the first lesson I immediately knew Ahmad was going to be professional, skilled, easy to work with, and open-minded. I really appreciated that Ahmad was down to go outside of your standard lessons in music theory and cater my experience in a way that would fast track me to what I wanted to accomplish within my lessons. As a self-taught musician who has been playing in touring bands for about the last 4 years I had a lot of different strengths and weaknesses. Ahmad helped me hone in on areas that would allow me to boost my confidence in practices and live performances while developing skills to better communicate musically with my bandmates. I believe Ahmad is the perfect instructor for all skill levels and backgrounds. He is an extremely talented and versatile musician. In addition to his abilities as a musician and instructor, he is patient, easy to communicate with, motivating, and understanding."

"GREAT TEACHER! RECOMMENDED!

I have been working with George for over 10 months now and I am very glad that I chose George to be my instructor. I signed up for singing and guitar lessons with him. I have a more musical background with singing than I did with guitar. I came into my first lesson with my dads old acoustic guitar (which I am still using now) without any experience. We started from scratch and now I already know so much about guitar. I also know more about music theory and building your own keys to fit your voice and ability. I have aspirations of becoming a professional musician and without learning from George I wouldn't have pushed myself to become as confident in myself as I am now. If you are ready to learn an instrument or fine tune your voice, George is your guy! Very nice and really wants the people that he teaches to succeed. I recommend him to anyone who really wants to work hard and learn."

"Scott is an excellent guitar instructor. As an older student who is slow to learn, I find he has extraordinary patience. He is very quick to diagnose what I'm doing wrong, work with me on ways to fix it, and teaches me how to detect similar problems for myself. It's seems to be impossible to stump him on how to play any song. "Can we learn to play X today?" you might ask. "Wow, it's been 20 years since I played that," he'll reply, then think for a few seconds and then bust out a flawless rendition and show you how to play. He's also quite good at figuring out what you NEED to learn if you don't know.

Scott is professional and highly competent, and is just a fantastic value for the money. I thought I could learn a lot watching YouTube instructional videos, but you learn so much more having someone show you and respond to what you're doing. If you're unsure if lessons are for you, definitely give it a try.

Also, I've found the online lessons to be almost superior to in-person ones, since it's easy to record the whole thing and play it back later. The audio and video are quite clear.

I can't recommend Scott enough."

5 Easy Guitar Licks to Impress Your Friends

Learning a few simple licks is a great way to get started playing the guitar! Even better, some of the most famous riffs in rock and roll are incredibly easy to play. Guitar teacher Matthew K. explains how... Anyone can learn the guitar, but it can be frustrating at first. Sore fingers and cramping hands can deter anyone from getting their first song down. This is why I compiled a list of five of my favorite simple guitar licks that sound great, and once you get them down, you can impress you …
