Bill is easy to work with and very patient. He is also great at teaching you chords and strumming patterns while learning songs you enjoy.
Jordan
Bill is an excellent teacher. He uses any type of music you like to help you learn and stay interested. I leave every lesson excited to go home and practice what I’ve learned. Bill allows me to make a short video of what we’ve gone over that lesson which is how I learn the best when I’m back at home. Its like having that weeks lesson at your disposal for you to use at any time. My love for the guitar has grown tremendously thanks to Bill.
Mikaela B.
It is with the utmost enthusiasm that I express my admiration for Bill's ability to make my first guitar lesson pleasant and comfortable (even when I know little to nothing about playing guitar). I am confident my future guitar lessons with Bill will provide me with solid guitar playing abilities, and will prove to be compelling and diversified.

Tom was absolutely fantastic. He seemed to be genuinely interested in my progress and just as excited as I was about me picking up the piano again - over 20 years since I’d last had lessons - which was an excellent motivator. I may have gone home and practices for a few hours. I look forward to continuing my lessons with him.
David
Tom was great during the first piano lesson. He was well prepared with materials to present to my son, who's taken other musical instruction for a couple of years in guitar & drums. He was able to assess his abilities, and work the lesson up to his ability within the first hour. My son enjoyed the interactive lesson!
Jason
Tom is very knowledgeable and supportive! I'm very happy with the pace of the lessons and the learning material he has provided is excellent. I'd recommend him to anyone!

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. I take the time to listen to my students, hear their struggles and dreams and create a lesson plan that is truly individual. I've worked with beginners who've never touched a guitar to professionals looking to broaden their horizons, all ages too! I am a very professional, motivated and flexible teacher looking to help you learn the guitar!

About Jeremy

I began playing guitar by ear around age ten. I learned rock songs from records for a few years, and then I began a more serious study of theory in high school. Over the next several years I alternated between pursuing my music degree and playing in bands all over the midwest. In 2004, I transferre

My son has been getting guitar lessons from Jeremy for about six months. My son is really enjoying learning to play and he looks forward to his lessons with Jeremy! Jeremy is a wonderful teacher. He's knowledgeable, intelligent, professional and easy going. Jeremy is not the first teacher that my son has had but he's by far the best. I feel very fortunate to have found him!
Brad
I learned so much from Jeremy over about 4 years of lessons. He listened to my goals, and tailored his lessons to help me achieve them. From the fundamentals to more advanced skills, such as improvisation, he stuck with me and allowed me to develop my own voice on the guitar.
Chris
I'm a total beginner on the guitar. Watched a few youtube vids, learned some basics, but working in-person with Jeremy I've progressed a LOT faster. Worth the investment!

"A great teacher who listens to the kids and seems to know that letting them play songs that they want to play will make them want to practice! He is teaching theory, technique and fun at the same time. Kelton was bored with so much theory and playing 'baby' songs that he didn't know. Cristopher's did his first recital with the song that my son wants to learn, too! I've already recommended him to neighbors and friends."

"You can't go wrong with Jesse

Our daughter who just turned 9 started taking guitar lessons with Jesse a few months ago as a beginner with no experience. We have been very satisfied with her progress and her enthusiasm has grown the more she learns. Jesse has a very kind, patient, and flexible style of teaching. He took the time to get to know our daughter and allows her to have input on the songs and music that they work on. My son once took guitar lessons and never really progressed and eventually quit. I see a huge difference with my daughter's guitar lessons experience and I attribute that all to the excellence in teaching that Jesse provides."

"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."
