Dyce’s action-packed lessons get aspiring students learning real songs in no time—all while teaching them music theory and scales that connects the music to relatable, practical theory. His custom-tailored lessons are based on this realization. “I know that all of my students are unique, both as people, and as musicians,” Dyce states, “so I realized that my lessons should celebrate these differences.” Instead of following a rigid, “cookie-cutter” approach to teaching, he makes allowances for these differences, and custom tailors a lesson plan that enriches their musical tastes, goals, and strengths. Dyce has learned, over two decades of playing and teaching professionally, when to push students—and when to stay out of the way. This sort of expert guidance helps students flourish, because they learn music on their own terms.+ Read More
I run my own business and teach full time.
Dyce is very professional and accomplished. He takes you at your own speed, so you never feel pressure. He's also very encouraging. I would definitely recommend him to other students.
I've been taking guitar lessons with Dyce for 4 months now and it has been great. He really knows what he is doing and is very skilled at teaching his craft. Highly recommend him.
Dyce is a really nice guy and communicates very well, making his lessons very enjoyable. Having several past experiences with other instructors, I can say he really knows his craft and has tons of valuable experience to offer. I definitely recommend him!
Dyce is an awesome guitarist, and above all, a nice guy; versatile in his playing, genuinely interested in the STUDENT and his/her goals, and incredibly knowledgeable in all things music. Apart from just learning how to master the guitar, you can also learn about amps, effect pedals, boosters, EQ, and the list goes on..
You won't go wrong!
Awesome teacher! I've studied with other teachers before, but this is the first time I'm actually having FUN ... Dyce is a great teacher who knows how to get the best out of his students and I'd wholeheartedly recommend his Skype lessons to anyone!+ Read More
I've taken about 4 lessons from Dyce so far, and
I have been with 2 teachers before him, and I have faced the same problem, they do not listen.
Being a married man in my 60's I don't have much time to practice, and thus I cannot waste my time learning things that will keep me (not) doing what I want for a long time.
I told them, the same thing I told Dyce, I want to learn to play Blues/Rock Lead and Rhythm guitar asap, not by doing (mostly) exercises, but by doing exercise that will quickly lead me to start playing simple Blues/Rock songs, this way I don't get board, and give up playing (which I do not want to do).
From the first day I started with Dyce he listened and has continued to do so, he has given me simple scales and songs to help me start playing lead guitar rite away, and I know that Dyce will keep me going steady towards my goal, of being a proficient Blues/Rock guitar player as soon as possible.
Dyce knows what it takes to get one playing quickly, and is not afraid of (loosing) a student too quickly do to him giving the student some short cuts, that shows that he truly cares and listens, and that he is confident about him self as a teacher.
Dyce is a great teacher! He's very patient and knows how to communicate well!
Dyce has a unique, diverse and amazing gift, the music is just In him. It's as if music is a part of who he is and because of that, music seems to just flow out of him as he plays, performs and teaches. My experience with him has demonstrated a definite passion about his craft and an ability to impart that craft to those he teaches. He also, in my experience with him, has a heart that really cares for those he works with.+ Read More
In our first lesson he saw what I wanted to do but I could not quite get there. He recommended for me to keep it simple and we can build on that. I took a step back in my playing at first. We then added on every week since. My playing is more musical and fluid. Best of all I understand why. I have drastically improved in a short time. He is the best teacher I every had. He took what I had and made it much much better. Dyce has a amazing passion for teaching. I would and do recommend him to anyone.+ Read More
Dyce is an outstanding guitar teacher and I highly recommend him! He "gets it" right away and knows exactly what I need to do to improve my playing. He makes his lessons both innovative and enjoyable at the same time. It is a pleasure to learn from him. I am very happy that he is my teacher. He is also a phenomenal guitar player and a really nice guy!+ Read More
My playing has skyrocketed since I started taking classes with Dyce. He has a way of teaching that anyone can easily understand.
I've been going to Dyce since Feb of this year and my playing has improved 100%, He is very knowledgable and gives me great tools to apply while I practice. I love playing and look forward to learning so much more with him.
Dyce Kimura is an amazing guitar teacher! He teaches me everything I need to know to become a guitarist! There is no better guitar teacher than he is. He rocks!
Dyce is an outstanding artist, teacher and professional. I very much enjoy the way he leads his band with excellence.
Dyce is an amazing teacher and really knows how to connect with the student, no matter what level. I have been going for several months now and have advanced more than I expected to. He's an awesome teacher. I highly recommend him!
I cannot said anything negative about Dyce, he is a great Teacher a great person he definitely knows what he is doing.
His teaching techniques are awesome and the way he teaches his lessons makes learning how to play guitar very easy.
I would recommend him 100% without any hesitation.
Great teacher, has a wealth of knowledge to share ! I haven't been playing long and found him to be extremely patient and professional.
Upon meeting Dyce his talent on guitar immediately blew me away!
He is a great teacher and a true inspiration. I was self taught and didn't realize a lot of bad habits I picked up. Dyce has helped fine-tune my skill in a short period of time. His teaching style will make you feel very comfortable and confident.
I would recommend lessons from Dyce to anyone with the desire to become an accomplished guitarist/musician!
It's a honor to be able to work and learn from Dyce Kimura.
I've been playing for over 30 years and every time I get together with Dyce I do learn something new.
Beginners, Inter-levels and Pro-players they all have a blast and a great fun time learning from a truly amazing and professional guitar player.
I feel blessed to be around Dyce and I'm looking forward for the next 100 years playing together!!!
My twelve year-old just started with Dyce, and he's great. He's very good with kids, and plays along with the student which is very motivational. He gets the students excited about the music, and playing, right away.
A top rate guitarist and teacher. Dyce is an organized and engaged professional. If you are passionate about music and dedicated to learning the guitar, Dyce can help you with the rest!

It is a pleasure to learn guitar from someone like Dyce. He is a great player a great teacher and most of all he is extremely passionate about his craft and his students.
He takes the time to explain and go over things with you . He understands all genres.
If you want to learn guitar from a true professional Dyce is the one for you.
I can't say enough good things about Dyce. I've been playing guitar for 2 years, and had tried several teachers during that time, but none made the music 'click' for me.
Dyce is able to teach me the techniques of playing guitar -- as well as learning to read music & theory -- all while playing actual songs & having fun!
I've progressed more in the past two months with Dyce than I had with several other teachers over 2 years! Highly-recommended to anyone who wants to get better @ guitar, and have a good time while doing it!
