Blake really enjoyed it & Robert was patient & very informative.
Mikhaela
Although I'm a fairly new learner, I chose Robert as a teacher because he teaches everything from beginner to advanced. I'm glad I did -- his depth of knowledge is clear and he understands my questions quickly and can answer from different angles to make sure I understand. After just two lessons I feel like I've gained a lot already and am excited to continue learning.
Michael
Robert is a super nice guy, great teacher, and extremely knowledgeable about the guitar.

I really learned a lot about how to play the piano, and it was really helpful even though I had some experience before I started taking lessons

Great for beginners!
Eban P.
Will was everything I expected. I was looking for someone to teach naturally as opposed to rote (boring) learning. I'm sure Will can do rote but he did what I asked.

He really knows his music and can teach in a way that gets my son directly into actually playing music, which is exactly what I was after.

He’s really flexible and can take anything and turn it into something good.

The pace was spot-on, matching perfectly the maximum my son could understand at the time.

I think my son learnt the absolute maximum he could in that short space of time and he learned a LOT.

How do you learn to write songs? What are the nuts and bolts of songwriting? Isn't it all just passion and self expression? No. There are tricks to learn, mistakes to avoid, and processes to develop that make songwriting more easy and fun.
I've been a teacher and record producer for over 15 years, not to mention a singer/songwriter and sideman. Over the years, I've studied songwriting to learn what makes a great song work and now I'd like to share that with you. Focusing more on the songs than the beats or the singing, I'll help you develop airtight songs that stand up to scrutiny and can be played anywhere, anytime in any format.

About Zak

I've been a touring musician, solo performer and teacher for almost 20 years. I've taught guitar, piano, bass and drums, but currently I am focusing on songwriting. I've released several records and have had many songs licensed to film and TV. My approach to songwriting revolves around improving

Nora
- Mr Mandel is the most patient instructor, which is good since he's dealing with an 8 year old girl who's not sure she even wants to play an instrument. Somehow, he manages to instruct and motivate her even when she'd rather be playing computer games.
- I also take lessons from him- I've got a music background but had no previous experience with the guitar before and Mr Mandel was able to adapt his teaching style to accommodate that nicely.
-I highly recommend him!
Claire
I am an adult who began guitar as an adult and I have taken lessons with Mandel for nearly a year. He is the single best music instructor I have ever had. He is incredibly knowledgeable and versatile, welcomes questions, and will take time to explain anything even if it interferes with his planned lesson. He is encouraging and incredibly professional. I leave every lesson ready to try again and encouraged to keep practicing. I highly recommend him as a guitar and music theory instructor.
Patrick
Mandel is an excellent guitar teacher, and is very professional at his craft. He shows patience and works with you effectively throughout every 30 minute session! Thumbs up!
