I am really impressed with Chuck's ability to get right to the things I want to learn while still explaining the fundamentals. I'm a self-taught guitar player (30 years) but I came to Chuck with no reading skills and no piano experience at all. He has been able to take what I know and show me how to apply it to learning theory, but within 3 lessons he also has me really excited about playing actual music that I'm into. Great learning studio and professional yet laid-back demeanor. Definitely plan on sticking with Chuck.

Eric is a knowledgeable, friendly and patient teacher.

I would highly recommend Eric at House of Music for guitar lessons. I am after a certain style of guitar music using finger picking to play for my special needs son. I have learned that not all teachers are familiar with this style. Thankfully, Eric is great at it. He is also teaching me how to read music and not just play the chords or tab which is something I had overlooked. I am thankful he has been able to work with me and my unique set of circumstances and help me reach my goals.

Eric Lesko taught my son Brian guitar 18 years ago when Brian was a teenager. My son got to a point that he didn't want to practice and we were thinking about giving up the lessons. However, Eric got Brian playing whatever kind of music my son was interested in and he continued taking for a few years thereafter, completely enjoying it. When I decided to take up the guitar around eight years ago, Eric was the first and only instructor I thought of. Besides being very capable musically, he is willing to move in any direction that you want in order to keep you interested and helping you achieve your goals. He always has suggestions on ways to approach a particular piece in order to make playing fun and not frustrating. He is also well-versed in the use of technology to make playing a continuum as you gain skills, making a huge difference in being able to get more out of practice. Finally, he is conveniently located in a new facility in downtown Oviedo and he is very flexible with lesson days and times. Eric's greatest asset is that he wants the student to enjoy playing as much as he does!

"I love that the 5-star rating description is "Best instructor ever" because I often tell people that my son's guitar teacher is the best music instructor we have ever had. I have 5 kids, and they have played piano in the past. This year my oldest is taking guitar for the first time. The thing that I love most about KJ is that he doesn't just teach my son how to play the notes -- he teaches him how to play music. There is a big difference between those two, and KJ is helping my son to see the music beyond the notes. KJ does a great job teaching notes, theory, and technique, but he teaches so much more that that as well. I can't say enough good things about KJ."

"I signed up to play guitar for "The Sound of Music" with Burbank Community Theater, and after I got the music I realized I was way over my head. So, I went to Mike hoping to get a lot of help. He's amazing. First, he sight-read all of my music, which is crazy. Then he was able to simplify it for me so I could play it and still make it sound good. If it wasn't for him I wouldn't have been able to do the show. And now that I've done the show successfully I have a whole new range of skills on the guitar and playing the songs I love is way easier.

I'm so grateful for Mike and everything he's taught me!"
