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!
Dionne T.
Juan is awesome. He makes learning guitar easy and never complicates it .. and makes it fun. He's a great teacher.

Fun classical guitar lessons. Very knowledgeable and thorough teacher. My son really enjoyed his lessons.
Jim K.
I've been self-taught for roughly 3 years and sought lessons to help me get out of the rut that I felt I was in.

Nick has exceeded my expectations. More than just a great banjoist, Nick is a fantastic all around musician. He's intimately familiar with genres of music I've never even heard of and is able to disseminate his vast knowledge of technique and theory into easy to understand lessons. One of my favorite things about Nick is he completely caters himself to you and your goals. On day 1, we laid down goals that I wanted to pursue, and every single lesson since has been centered around getting me there. Never once has Nick tried to trump what I thought was important to work on, he just works with me and helps me lay the ground work that I need to get moving closer to where I want to be. The other thing I really enjoy about Nick’s lessons is that he’s always respectful of me as an individual, and the environment that Nick sets up for his students often times make me feel like I'm just learning from an old friend rather than the expert, tenured, musician that he truly is. He has my highest recommendation to anyone looking to better their own musicianship.
Jabari K. Noel
Nick is an incredible instructor! He was able to prepare me for a professional guitar audition with in 2 hour long lessons. His attention to detail and deep understanding of advanced musical techniques makes him a gem of a teacher, and a pleasure to work with. Will definitely continue lessons!

I have few lessons with Keith so far. Keith is a very patient and flexible teacher. He customizes lesson plan accordingly to my level and needs. I have learned a lot in short amount of time. Thank you!
Princesse S.
He is the best! It’s been 3 weeks and I’m singing everywhere I go!
Julia C.
Keith is very knowledgeable, patient and methodical. By letting me play a few notes and asking a few questions, he already knew where I should start and had the whole study plan figured out. His lessons are very productive but not in an overwhelming way. After two classes, I actually already feel I've improved significantly. I'm getting more and more comfortable playing to musical notes, which I tried to teach myself several times but all failed. I finally feel I'm on the right track!

Landon is a kind and knowledgeable teacher. His patience and broad experience with various aspects of music make him a great resource.
Avi
My gifted son needs challenging and stimulating activities to help him balance all of his feelings. I was extremely hesitant with signing him up because he is only 4. However he instantly connected with Landon and said he has a fantastic time. I absolutely love how Landon has a gift to communicate music without watering down terminology but slowly speaking so that children can understand. He truly has a gift. We look forward to the next one.
Lorraine S.
When the student is ready the teacher will appear and am I glad! This is working out great. Landon is knowledgeable, patient, and talented. Just what I need to expand my musical endeavors.

Online Guitar Teacher

Beginners can expect to start by learning how to hold a pick, play basic chords, simple techniques, simple songs, tune their guitar, and learn basics of reading music. Intermediate students will learn how to play more advanced chords, music theory, minor and major scales, how to read more complex music, how to write songs, singing while they play, more advanced techniques, and how to play more advanced songs. Advanced students will learn more in depth music theory, how to learn songs by ear, even more advanced techniques (sweep picking, artificial harmonics, etc.), very complicated songs, how to read very intricate music, and more complicated scales and modes. All lessons are tailored to the students learning speed and goals for their own playing.

The first lesson was very informative and we look forward to our future lessons.

I had my first online lesson today, and I can already tell that Jon is a great instructor. He has you play most of the lesson and provides lesson materials. He's knowledgable, motivating, patient, and he builds your confidence as a player. I'm looking forward to continuing lessons with him. Thanks Jon!
Vicki
Referred to Jon by a friend. I knew within 2 minutes of meeting him we were going to be happy with our choice. I love to listen in while he is instructing my granddaughter. He is so patient and kind but yet firm enough to manage a beginning student and keep them motivated. My 12 year old granddaughter practices every day without prompting because he advised her that was an expectation. I would highly recommend him!

"I am really enjoying my lessons with Joey with now. The greatest part about my experience is that I am actually practicing, and enjoying the rewards of practicing. He really knows how to inspire his students, so he is a great choice for guitarist's who have hit the "wall". I have improved greatly in my practice sessions because of his philosophies on practice he has shared with me. We work on mostly electric guitar, and since he is classical trained, his thoughts on left hand technique are extremely helpful!"

Nikita is so encouraging and really strives to help the kids reach their potential. He is an excellent musician and an excellent teacher and that combination is not easy to find. My oldest daughter is studying to become a music ed teacher so we have had a lot of experience with music teachers."

"Great lessons, great guy

I've been taking lessons from Jason for about 8 months now, and they've been awesome. I've been playing for several years, but never took formal lessons--just checking tabs and playing along with songs. My main goal was to learn everything I missed: the basics, theory, technique... After just a lesson or two, Jason had figured out my skill level, set up relevant exercises, and began incorporating theory into what I already knew. I've seen huge improvements to my playing in such a short time, and I'm a bad student that barely practices.

What's impressed me the most is how well he incorporates the theory and exercises into actively learning songs you're interested in.. it keeps you exercising the theory while still having fun playing more than just scales. Definitely recommended for anyone wanting to dive into theory, improvisation, etc."

"I think my friends are tired of hearing me talk about how much I love my guitar lessons with Indigo. She is patient and kind and has a deep knowledge of the guitar and of music in general. I always come away from our lessons feeling like I have moved forward in my learning and inspired to practice. I am a beginner in my mid thirties but I think Indigo would be a great teacher for all ages and skill levels. If you are thinking about taking guitar lessons your teacher should be Indigo, I can't recommend her more!"
