Noga is a kind, patient, sensitive teacher with a deep understanding of musical theory and technique and a warm, encouraging and professional sensibility. Not just a great teacher but also a punctual, communicative scheduler. She's just wonderful to deal wit. 10 out of 10 would recommend!
David C
Noga is a great teacher!!! Always prepared and really knowledgeable. Totally recommended!
Nick C
Noga is all-around the best musical instructor I have ever had. What makes her lessons special is her passion for teaching and for music. She motivated me to challenge myself on the bass both through her creative exercises and supportive charisma. On top of that, Noga is a true master of the bass guitar. She has an immediately recognizable groove that you can hear whenever she plays, and her skill is incredibly wide-ranging. Our lessons have touched on driving rock, jazz walking bass, and ambient soundscapes to name a few, and she is very open to delve into new musical territory together if you have any questions on how to achieve a certain sound. Every lesson with her will have a great impact on your playing.

I really like to cater to what each individual student wants to learn. I prefer focusing on learning songs in addition to doing "bookwork", especially initially. I feel like its my job as a teacher to first make music fun first, and then introduce and refine concepts about technique, theory, etc. in a way that works for each unique student. I really try to encourage a student's curiosity about music. I like getting outside of the box; talking about for instance, the physics of sound, or the history of composition during a lesson. I am a huge theory nerd, and I really try to introduce those concepts in a way that is both easy to grasp and more practical than what you might take away from the typical 8am college course. I really try and go where the student wants to, whether that be guiding them thru some songwriting or learning a classic Richie Blackmore solo.

About Timothy

I have been teaching for over 15 years. I live for music, and love the opportunity to share that joy with others. I've toured all across the US and Europe, both as a guitarist and a sound engineer. I've also worked as a session guitarist since the age of 16. I'm fluid in a number of different genre

Tim’s doing a great job teaching our 9 yr old how to play guitar. He’s very patient!
Jessica
Our 9 year old son has been getting guitar lessons from Tim for the last 2 years and we couldn’t be happier. Tim was very patient with him as a beginner and kept it simple until he learned the basics. He does a great job of relating to the kids and making it fun for them while educating them on technique through their progression. Our son really looks forward to going to lessons and can’t thank Tim enough for his instruction and mentorship to our little Rockstar!
Aidyn
Love Tim. He teaches what the student is ready to learn which has kept me interested in guitar lessons for the past 2 years. No workbooks. He encourages me to try any new song I want. Sometime I ask for a lesson in music theory, song writing, or a little piano. He’s just a cool guy and very relatable.

"I have had a few music teachers before Teresa, but none have had the kindness, patience, or skill that she has. I came into my first session with very little guitar knowledge but Teresa was able to meet me at my level and develop my skills quickly and effectively in order to meet my goals. We also worked on piano and voice and she excelled at teaching all three instruments. I recommend Teresa wholeheartedly!"

"Dave taught my son guitar for about five years, from his middle school years up through high school. He always made my sons lessons fun and taught him music theory all along with learning enjoyable songs. Dave always encouraged my son to play things that were challenging and interesting yet complex enough to grow as a musician. He continues to play guitar and his ongoing love for guitar is due in part to Dave's years of lessons giving him the level of skill and joy."

"When I heard that the lead guitarist for one of my favorite bands, Native Construct, was offering lessons, I knew I had to give it a try. Having had only a year of experience beforehand, my skills were shaky to say the least. I've taken weekly .lessons for a few months and have seen a marked improvement in my fundamental skills. Not only does Poh Hock create a great learning environment, but he also creates a very relaxed one. If I didn't improve as much as he thought I should've over the course of a week, he didn't get on me about practicing more. Instead, he worked with me to determine where I was struggling and then would help me overcome it. I really can't recommend Poh Hock enough."

"I've had 5 lessons with Alex and have already seen incredible improvement. Alex's methodology is to teach lessons but taking a song you really would like to learn, and walking you through the steps necessary to be playing it seamlessly and quickly. He throws in musical theory and other important elements of learning the instrument in there as well. I love that he always emails me a rundown of our lesson via email after the lesson so I can be reminded of things when practicing. He is extremely accommodating with his schedule, which I also really appreciate. Overall, it's been an incredibly enjoyable experience and I recommend Alex to anyone trying to learn!"

Although we weren't sure how the online lessons would work out, my daughter was beaming after the first one excited to tell me all about it. It was important to us to find a guitar teacher with a warm, funny and personable personality to fit our daughter's personality awhile understanding how to communicate and educate her age range. It looks like that's exactly what we found. Heather was a great find."

"At 39 I decided it was time to learn to play guitar, I had wanted to do it for years but just hadn't. So I bought an electric guitar and played around for a month or so before deciding lessons were in order.

I shopped around for someone cheap, don't do that, they are cheap for a reason. I eventually came across Phil and we hit it off well. He is very well versed in blues and rock music which I was looking for. He knows music theory and breaks it down well. He's a straight shooter and will call you out when you're lazy, but always gives kudos and encouragement when appropriate.

It's nice when your teacher has practical real world experience to back up the teaching. Phil can back up his teaching and truly loves entertaining people, he puts on a great live show.

I would certainly recommend Phil as a teacher as well as a musician. Phil is a "Rock Star"!

Years later I am still playing guitar and now bass with a band several times a week and having a blast.

Thanks Phil."

"Damien is the best instructor I have ever had and I took lessons from multiple teachers for over 15 years for piano, keyboards, and guitar. He is extremely knowledgeable, talented, and personable. He has a structured and comprehensive approach to music theory and teaches from a socratic method which I love, although he tailors his approach to fit each student's personality and skill level. I have had instructors in the past who taught by ear and could not increase my knowledge base or skill level in reading music and understanding music theory. Damien's style and approach is driven by his education and experience and is the best I have ever encountered. If you want to just have a little fun learning a few chords and songs, or you want to become an accomplished musician, he is the best choice."
