GREAT LESSONS FROM AN AMAZING PLAYER

When I first started lessons with John A, I could barely play a song! LOL! But after about 4 months of diligently practicing what this highly competent and skilled teacher taught me, MY GUITAR PLAYING HAS BEEN TRANSFORMED!!!! I am grateful for finding this GEM OF A TEACHER!!! John A is very down to earth, also patient with thick headed students, like me LOL! I truly went from "I wish I could" to Yeah I can play that!
Thanks John A

Great website

If anyone is interested in taking guitar lessons or if you have kids who want to learn how to play the guitar, I highly recommend John. He's an amazing guitarist but even more, he's a wonderful teacher.
When I was starting out many moons ago, he gave me a couple of pointers that I still remember to this day.
John is friendly, knowledgeable and professional. From music theory to mastering the guitar, John has it all.

I won a few guitar lessons with Albert at a Gift Auction at my son's Elementary School many years ago. Albert was a wonderful teacher who seemed to know how to play any song I suggested and got me motivated to play the guitar again! I then signed both of my kids up with him. They took lessons on and off for many years and today they both sing and play guitar every chance they get. Thank you Albert for introducing them to the guitar and motivating them to play! It is a huge part of their lives!

Albert is able to relate to students of all ages, very well and give them a solid foundation. I was eight years old when I began taking lessons from him and he gave me a foundation in Rock, Blues, and Acoustic guitar that has lasted a life time. Albert is a very patient teacher and very talented musician.

Albert is an excellent teacher of many styles - I learned classical, rock, bluegrass and folk guitar while working with him. As an older player trying to pick up an instrument again, he made me feel comfortable and much less intimidated at the task. It is true that he is very patient and dedicated to helping you realize your musical goals. I give him my highest recommendation.

Teaching music is my passion, it is more than just a career. I value each student and the time I have with them; helping them to explore the world of music. Hopefully after each lesson, my students walk away with a deeper understanding of music theory and have enjoyed their time. I am available to teach Acoustic Guitar, Electric Guitar, Classical Guitar, Bass, Upright Bass, Banjo, Ukulele, Mandolin, and beginner Drums. I am a husband and father. I teach all age ranges. *** Lesson Details *** I approach each lesson differently because every student is unique. During the initial lesson I will begin to assess the student's ability, determine the best teaching technique for them, and setup a practicing at home guideline. My job is to help the student reach their individual goals and ...

Andrei has been our weekly music teacher for more than three years. He teaches my son (now 9 years old) to read music and play the drums and the piano, and he teaches me to play the guitar.

Andrei has been nothing but reliable and generous with his time. He is proficient in music history and theory, in a wide range of musical styles, on multiple instruments. His patience, diverse knowledge and skills along with what appears to be an intuitive approach toward each of his varied students, has been very effective for us. Also, he knows A LOT of music, has a great ear and doesn't seem to mind working with us to play whatever tunes we come up with each week.

If you or your child wants to learn to play an instrument, this is the guy!

Charlie has been giving lessons to my son and is the absolute best! He is passionate about music and brings such energy to each lesson. My son is learning how to play jazz from Charlie after being classically trained. It has opened up a whole new world for him.

It great listening to the lessons because Charlie and my son enjoy music so much.

Charlie is the best piano teacher I have worked with. In just two months of taking lessons with him, I have learned myriads of info about music, theory, jazz, blues, and the classics. Being under his tutelage is truly an honor and he is patient with me even when I don't practice (Although I must say he's a real stickler for that). I would recommend anyone to him with a desire for music whether you are 5 or 55.

Charles Clarke is hands down the best, Piano teacher I have ever taken lessons from. His is concise and effective in his communication and I am excelling at a steady rate. Now I am even able to figure out chord progressions by listening to recordings all because he has taught me how chords are constructed. I would highly recommend him to anybody seeking a reliable, talented and professional instructor.

Justin showed my 10 year old son how to play the trumpet and did a great job. He was patient, made my son feel comfortable and was able to help him get a better sound by the end of the very first lesson. Jalen does not give high praise easily so we were impressed that he enjoyed learning from him. My mother listened in on some of the lessons and she also said Justin did a great job - friendly personality and great tips on how to play. We highly recommend him.

"I took my kids to Miss Sherri because I kept hearing
how wonderful it was. I believe in early exposure to
music because they get so much out of it when they're
really little. And Sherri has a magical quality that
sparks their interest. Jack, 9, Andrew, 7 and my
daughter, Bailey, 6, are now clients of Shirley Grant,
a talent manager for Keisha Knight Pullian, who played
Rudy on 'The Cosby Show,' and Kathleen Herles, the
voice of 'Dora the Explorer.' Jack recently played the
lead in Running Rabbit Theater's production of 'The
Velveteen Rabbit' at the Two River Theater. We love
Miss Sherri!"
