My daughter is very excited before every lesson! When my family asks about her school she doesn't have anything to say, but when they ask her about her lessons she loves talking about what she is learning and how much she enjoys them. She is really good with kids! I would recommend her to everyone!

Tom is a well informed music and guitar teacher. I tried two other guitar teachers prior to Tom and they didn’t work out for me. Tom is a natural teacher he’s got it, he just seems to make learning easy.

I have been a full time musician for the last 10+ years and have played over 3000 gigs. I am self taught so I understand how to teach beginners quickly to get them playing asap and then teach the theory later. I can play virtually any song but have a current song list of over 600 cover songs. I also have released a few albums on iTunes, Spotify, etc. I also play several instruments including acoustic guitar, electric guitar, bass, ukulele, piano, drums, harmonica, and I sing. In addition I can teach recording concepts and Ableton Live basics. I have taught several students for a few years at a studio and in home ranging from kids to adults. Learn from a pro not just a teacher. Plus I'm laid back and I like to make learning fun! Hope to talk with you soon! :)

About Eric

Full time gigging musician from Tampa Bay ready to teach you how to play like the pros! I've played over 3000 gigs and currently know over 600 cover songs. I'm self taught and I love to teach people how to play. Hopefully I can share my knowledge with you and get you playing asap! Peace!

"I have been taking guitar lessons with Ahmad Since 2011. Music has always been important to me and my lessons with Ahmad have been a continual source of inspiration and joy. I love Ahmad's musical philosophy and regardless of what I'm interested in he is always able to help me better myself. I continue to be very busy in my life but always find myself coming back to music. Through taking lessons with Ahmad I have been able to achieve many of my musical goals and know that if I keep practicing I will be able to achieve even more of my goals.

Ahmad is extremely talented, intelligent, and friendly and is always there to support me in whatever new musical concept I wish to learn next. He can help anyone looking to better themselves in a wide variety of areas regardless of the style of music you are interested in. I have been studying jazz with him primarily, as my goal is to be able to write my own music and put together a band some day. I have no intention of stopping music lessons with Ahmad as they continue to be something I look forward to every week. Anyone would be lucky to have such a great teacher."

"I can honestly say that I've never progressed with guitar as quite as rapidly as when I've been working with Bob. Put in the practice, and you WILL get better, both in technique and theory. These rigorous, drill-driven programs definitely lead to mastery of the material, and an improved command of the instrument however you decide to use it."

"An excellent teacher and guitar player at the same time

When I first approached Nick I was a complete newbie and had no idea what I was doing on the guitar. Not knowing how to truly spend my practice time, read notes or even hold the pick correctly, Nick taught me the basics from the first lesson and eventually so much more. Ultimately, he helped realize a level of playing I couldn't have achieved on my own.

With that said, many things impressed me about Nick. First and foremost of these was his versatile and creative teaching style. He consistently adapted each lesson to fit my level, interests and problem areas. Whatever I needed to work on he made sure the lesson was spent wisely so I could get the most out of my time with him and address those issues that would improve my overall level of playing. If a technique or musical piece wasn't improved on after one or two lessons, he made sure to go back to it in subsequent lessons until he was convinced I was able to play it properly. He never settled for something being played in an average manner, but constantly pushed me to master the issue at hand. At the same time he made sure I was always being challenged with new material to continue building on my skills and in the process would not become bored.

Secondly, Nick is an outstanding guitar player who not only has amazing technique, but is well versed in his knowledge of the instrument and the many ways it can be played. He's not a one sided guitar player who only sticks to a single variety of playing, and I feel that gives him a unique ability to provide well rounded instruction to his students. When I was being taught by Nick I truly felt that I was being taught by a teacher who knew what he was talking about and could provide the best instruction possible.

Lastly, supporting his abilities on the guitar is Nick's knowledge of music theory and ability to make it both easy to understand and fun to learn . Learning about the theory behind the instrument aided my understanding of the guitar and gave me an additional layer of knowledge that I didn't think I'd ever get from a guitar lesson.

In the end Nick guided me in correcting many errors that I had ingrained into my playing from hours of incorrect self-practice and helped me vastly increase my skill level on the guitar. I can honestly say that had it not been for him I would never have gotten out of the beginner stage, nor would I have been able to learn as much as I did without his help. If you want to learn guitar or improve your skills I highly recommend getting in touch with Nick and taking lessons with him. He'll help you learn the instrument on both a macro and micro level that will improve your playing abilities and knowledge. Whether you're a beginner or advanced he'll make sure you master the proper techniques given your skill level, while still making the lessons enjoyable and introducing you to material that will test your limits."

"If you have an opportunity to study with Andrew, take it.

Andrew is an exceptionally gifted teacher. He knows music through and through. He knows guitar forward and back. His command of music theory, the guitar and performance is so complete (so second-nature to him), he can direct his conscious attention entirely to the needs of the student, adapting his teaching methodology accordingly. And he does it with such ease and comity.

Every lesson I attended was relaxed, cordial, fun and packed with tips, expertise & insight."

"Dave M. proves you can teach an old dog new tricks

I am a 66 year old retired IT professional that has a passion for guitar playing. During my working years I did not have the time to indulge my desire to learn how to play. After dabbling with self instruction and a few music store instructors these past few years of retirement I finally found a teacher truly committed to his students. I feel like for the first time I am making progress and learning how to play guitar. Dave is enthusiastic and thorough with his lessons and a true professional in his craft. He has instilled me with an infectious desire to move forward and I can't wait for the next lesson to come around. I highly recommend him and his approach to other potential students young or old."
