Shon is very accommodating to helping you learn at your own pace. He is very patient, encouraging and insightful. Shon is very relaxed which helps me feel comfortable and not feel pressured. He gives reassurance all the time that the "growing pains" of learning guitar are normal things everyone fights through. I would highly recommend him.

Moa’s definitely the best. She’s taught me so much and has transformed my voice in just 5 lessons. Everyday I have a lesson with her, I am so excited because she makes it a lot of fun! Can’t wait to continue getting lessons from her and I definitely recommend her to anyone trying pursue a singing career.
Amanda
I'm a beginner at guitar and never did I think that after 3 lessons I would be playing the iconic rock songs that I know and love! Moa has an uncanny way of breaking things down and making a complex instrument easy to learn. I've throughly enjoyed every lesson thus far, and look forward to eventually becoming proficient with Moa's help!

My son is a BEGINNER beginner. Rodrigo is a very nice guy and seems to know his stuff very well. I would give him 5 stars but I don't think he realized that my son needed the basic, basic 1st lesson (i.e. how to hold the instrument). We've only attended one session so this is fully based on that one lesson. I'm sure he'll adjust his teaching from here on out.

"Eric is the man and he knows an insane amount about the guitar. I like that he adapts to my pace so even when it takes me a bit longer to nail something down, we work on a famous solo or something like that until I get the theory. He is also very accommodating and very responsive if you have to get in touch with him or have any questions."

"My daughter (8) and I both began guitar lessons from Steve over this past summer to try something new, and we really enjoyed having Steve as a teacher! I found him to be very friendly and easy-going, and was very patient with us both being beginners. He did a great job encouraging proper technique and good guitar habits - the things you cannot just learn from a book. My daughter had never had music lessons of any sort before, and I have played other instruments for 25+ years; despite our different backgrounds and level of musical knowledge, Steve was able to teach both of us effectively. I believe his ability to differentiate teaching style and instructional pace speaks to his overall knowledge of music, of guitar, and especially to his ability as a teacher. I would happily recommend Steve as a guitar teacher to anyone, either adult or child!"

"amazing teacher

jeff S. is an excellent guitar teacher, ive had him as a teacher for about a year maybe even longer and the only reason i stopped was because my financial situation took a downfall , but if i still had the money id be seeing him as much as i could . i would leave his class extremely happy knowing i could go home and finally play guitar if it werent for him id probably have hung up my baby(my guitar) a long time ago . he made things really easy to understand ,he had great patience for me when i couldnt get a lick/riff down instantly and he always broke things down to a level where my mind would just absorb the information. i highly reccommend him for anyone who wants to learn guitar in a fun and productive way"

"Tony has been teaching me for nine years and he truly believes in teaching his students not only the basics of learning the guitar but why the instrument is such a privilege to play and teaches based on the students ability. He also teaches the history and evolution of the guitar and also facts that i never knew that made me very proud to play such an instrument. He sees the potential in the student and encourages them to go beyond where they think they can go and makes it happen. Tony slowly built up motivation in me to keep exploring on my own and he planted the seed of wanting to practice to the point where playing guitar became one of the most important things in my life and i do not think another teacher could have done the same thing. I started to explore YouTube and teach myself a lot of the songs i wanted to learn starting with chords, then finger picking, then adding percussion, and finally putting all three together in many arrangements. I would never have been able to figure that out or have the motivation to if it was not for the things he taught and showed me. Now he teaches me many new techniques involving flamenco and you really cannot get all of this with someone else. Some other people I know have different teachers and i can tell by the way they talk about them and what they are learning that they do not compare to mine. I am really lucky to have ended up with someone who has such commitment and I am always super excited to keep learning what he has to teach. His knowledge is endless and it blows me away what he shows me. Tony never tries to make any of his lessons boring and he definitely has a talent not many people have. I recommend Tony, 100%."
