I didn’t have any musical background but always wanted to try. And I got so lucky to met Keith. He is very encouraging and scrupulous teacher. We have piano and singing lessons, he offers me to practice songs and melodies that I like but makes sure that I get all the basics right. And the best part is that he loves playing and teaching music, which creates a great atmosphere in the class

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!

Sylivan is a great teacher with great personality. He was there to help me not only when I struggled with music and guitar but also when I felt down. I asked him why he cared so much and he told me a healthy mind is most important which helps in music learning =) Sylivan is also patient; even sometimes I can't stand myself but he was there to help me to learn lol He has passion in teaching and you can see it once he's in action.

Online Acoustic Guitar Teacher

Pro musician/recording artist, over 15 years teaching experience. I make learning to play fun. I call my teaching style "50-50" Because 50% percent is what you want and 50% is what you need. You'll learn by working towards your goals using music that you enjoy (Rock/Blues/Country/Jazz/etc)

About Nairobi

My goal is to make you shine. All lessons are individually designed specifally for you. Also, I know HOW to teach effectively. Establishing trust and communication is key. All lessons are customized to your musical tastes and particular style of learning. There are many talented professional musici

It was the best! I didn't know what to expect because I've never played before. Nairobi was patient, professional and thorough. He was reassuring and his instructions were easy to follow. No longer nervous, I feel like I've achieved a major goal in learning to play. 5 STARS!
Conrad
Vast experience and knowledge.
Patient approach to teaching.
Don
Nairobi has been a great instructor. He does not use the "one size fits all approach", but rather will customize the instruction to what you want. Accordingly, students will remain interested and get more out of it when the curriculum is of interest to them. I wanted to learn how to play the guitar, but wasn't interested in learning to read music. Nairobi also let's you choose what type and what specific songs you'd like to learn. Learning to play your favorite rock, pop or blues song versus Mary Had a Little Lamb- guess which one keeps you more motivated and interested in learning how to play? Also, being able to have the lesson in the privacy of your own home is great. He makes learning to play the guitar fun. If you put the work in you'll be playing in no time.

I am a professional peer, and fellow guitar instructor. Having known Kayla for the last several years, I have seen how her simple, yet masterfully thorough approach to instruction can excite and entertain students of all ages.

Kayla uses her collegiate level music theory and performance background to educate on a plethora of subjects. However, she clearly communicates beneficial concepts to both children and adults alike.

I highly recommend Kayla both as a peer, and a student. I’ve benefited from her wisdom, and insight throughout the years, and I know you will too.
Janine
Great teacher! Kayla is an excellent communicator. Her guitar lessons are easy to understand, practical, and fun. With Kayla’s experience in a wide variety of genres she offers any student the chance to learn exactly what they want to learn! 10/10
Marion
The vocal lessons with Kayla are very good. She always tried to respond to the clients levels and preferences. It is not always easy to use your own voice like you want to, but Kayla has a bunch of really good tipps for you.
Funny, honest and definitely skilled teacher. Highly recommended!

About Richard

I have studied, performed and taught music for over 30 years. Accordion was my first instrument at age 7 which was a great introduction to the keyboard, melody and harmony. That was followed by guitar and other stringed instruments (Banjo, Ukulele) as well as drums. I studied with great teachers

Tony R.
Richard is a fantastic instructor that is flexible with may many questions. He answers succinctly, and is willing to go down the rabbit hole with me (I'm a philosophy major). But, he is quick to bring me back to instruction in the playing itself. His patience and persistence are noteworthy. I couldn't have asked for a better instructor to teach me my first instrument.
Bruce
Clear direction, first session was basic
Anxious to see what the next less will cover

Had a great first lesson with Rich, who was funny, precise, and adaptable.

"I've been taking lessons with Jimmy for over a year now. He's a great instructor and really takes the time out to ensure I understand and grasp all the concepts he teaches. Learning in his studio has been fun and inspiring because I get to experience what it's like to record music. It's also a very useful in hearing myself recorded so I can play it back and see where I can improve. Jimmy is a great guy and a true professional. I would highly recommend taking lessons with him."
