Acoustic Guitar Reviews

"I contacted Nick, who's responses were efficient in a timely manner. I stated I had some past negative experiences with learning to play the guitar. His e
mails were comforting and first few lessons I felt relaxed. There's no pressure to sound one way and the time is spent on meeting me where I am at. Most importantly, I have fun when he's across from me! I am excited to see where I will be in a year with his guidance."
"Had a great lesson with Victor! He knows music really well and is very patient with beginners."
"Best instructor ever"
"I have had the pleasure of playing and collaborating with Al for the better part of 6 years and in that time I have come to know him as a friend and mento
r. Al's ability to simplify a concept into easily understandable principles has proved invaluable to me in my own growth as a musician. Although already experienced with guitar, with Al's help I was able to understand music in a new way and reinvigorate my methods. Al's expertise reaches far beyond bass and into many other aspects of music that provide a breadth to anything he teaches. He has always been very kind and understanding while still holding me to high standards and I really appreciate his way of teaching through application. I would definitely recommend Al's lessons to anyone new to bass or music in general."
"Anyone with half a brain knows that if a student is unhappy they can change teachers easily. Only a coward writes anonymous reviews out of jealousy. Since
Take Lessons guarantees all lessons a person with integrity would simply work things out over the phone instead of hitting "below the belt". Some teachers have learned from the best at M.I. in Hollywood so that is telling it like it is. This is not "Name Dropping." I have known James for 15 years and have found him to be the best teacher ever, period.
Don't believe anything you read in "anonymous" reviews."
"My son looks forward to his lessons with Jon as he makes learning to play guitar fun. I highly recommend Jon to anyone wanting get the most out of learnin
g this instrument."
"Ahmad is very energetic and passionate about guitar and teaching guitar to people. He is very organized and systematic in his teaching. His style of teach
ing enables students to learn and get to know a wide variety of guitar aspects very quickly. He breaks up lessons into short but consumable modules while at the same time giving something concrete to start playing and get going from the word go whether you are a beginner or not. I've been going to him for several months now and would highly recommend Ahmad for his guitar teaching skills!"
"Tim is awesome, he is spiritually a great person, to have as a teacher and mentor. he is very patient. If you don't understand the lesson, just don't get
frustrated, let him know, and he'll go over it again in different way that you will understand him. believe me I was worried at first that I didn't speaking in guitar terms or language and which I don't have any knowledge. Tim made it easy for me to understand, and I am learning at a pace that I feel very comfortable. Amen to that."
"I was horrible and he waa very patient and detailed during our lessons. I am making great strides rapidly thanks to him!"
