Michelle not only knows music but based on my 50+ years in education, she also is has a very good grasp in the mechanics of education. The lesson was excellent!

Michelle makes my banjo playing easier and easier. I am feeling very comfortable. She points out all the bad habits I should not do, that is good for later down the road.

A great start. I think he knows what I want, and how I want to learn guitar

First lesson went very well. Looking forward to the next.
Deborah Dickson Jones
I just had my first lesson with Brett and he customized it according to my individual needs and circumstance. I am passionate about guitar and folk music but have no musical experience. Bretts plan is to start with the very basics and move forward from there. He was very patient with me and his directions were easy to follow. Though I am a senior I feel like I am 20 years old again and learning a new skill. Thanks Brett

I know many rock songs and will be happy to teach them. I also love christian mus

I only had Marc for a couple months (unfortunately had to move), but he is a phenomenal teacher and I recommend to anyone. He's very easy to communicate with and strikes a great balance between the technical learning you need with having fun.

First lesson. Marc was great

I only got to take lessons from Marc for a couple of months in the summer of 2016 (I had to move away for work), but he is hands down the best music teacher I've ever encountered. It's a year and a half later and I'm still benefitting from his tutelage. From beginner to advanced, you've found the right guy for the job.

The traditional school of Tárrega and Segovia will be expanded with my lessons. I cover five-finger techniques, explorations of sonority (think Julian Bream and beyond), and what have often been called special techniques (percussion, harmonics, golpes . . . ). Traditional repertoire as well as original composition and improvisation will be covered.

About Lars

I studied jazz guitar primarily with Randy Vincent, one of the San Francisco Bay Area's greatest guitar players, and continue to broaden my horizons under the guidance of Matthew Gr

"One satisfied student

I took several guitar lessons with Raymond when I was younger. He is an excellent instructor and has the right amount of patience, dedication, and knowledge for proper musical education. I enjoyed learning new techniques, practice sessions, the study material, and even homework! I wish I lived closer so I could continue taking classes. Thanks!"

"I have been taking classical guitar lessons with Remi for about a month now and so far my experience has been very positive. Remi is an excellent musician with robust knowledge of theory and technique. His experience and background is impressive as well.

As a teacher, Remi is very patient and works with you to help you understand music theory and improve your techniques. He is focused on making his students well-rounded musicians and has a long-term view in mind with his teaching style, which I appreciate. His sessions are very casual and have a relaxed feeling.

Overall, I rate him very highly as an instructor and I would certainly recommend him to anyone looking to learn an instrument in which he has proficiency."

In her words: Mark plays along with you and tells you what you’re doing well and what can be improved. He gives good tips about how to work on what you need to improve. He recommends songs to play but also asks what songs you want to play."

A Little Bit of Country: Easy Classic Country Songs for Guitarists

If you're a fan of classic country music, you've come to the right place. Here, guitar teacher Willy M. shares his favorite classic country songs for guitarists... I grew up in the late '70s and early '80s in the rural Midwest when "Hee-Haw," a country television program, was something that everyone knew about. It was the Grand Ole Opry’s rendition of a high-theatrical experience, and a showcase for classic country artists to play their tunes. Willie Nelson, one of my favorite songwr …
