I have worked with Terry for 5 years and I have had nothing but a positive experience working with him. Terry always makes lesson fun while challenging me and pushing me to become a better musician. Working with Terry I have learned about music theory, music history, songwriting, and guitar performance. You will be had pressed to find a teacher who cares about their students as much as Terry does. He works to make you the best you can be and takes pride in the fact that he turns out great musicians. Terry made me the musician I am today and I am very thankful to have worked with such a wonderful teacher. Whether you are a serious musician that wants to take their playing to the next level or a learning a new instrument, you can not go wrong working with Terry.

Terry is a great instructor. He will custom tailor the lesson to your needs and teach you how to play guitar the way you want. In the year I have been working with him I have learned how to play many songs and made improvements in rhythm, picking, and dynamics. He can transcribe music or help you use your ear to do it yourself. During lessons Terry will discover and correct bad habits

Terry isn't just another instructor that gives you some homework and prays for the best. He is passionate about music and will teach you to play better.
Bruce S. Boulder City, NV

Mostly I teach beginning and intermediate leaves. I teach a wide variety of music styles which adds greatly to the overall experience. I teach each student how to chord and how to read music. If the student would like to play by ear I can do that also. I teach many different styles of music. I supply a great method book if the student needs one. I use a song book that has a play-along CD with it. All the students love this type of method.

About Bruce

I received my degree from the University of Utah in instrumental music education. Along with specialized training in band and orchestra instruments, I also offer lessons in guitar, banjo, mandolin, and harmonica in playing and performance. When a student has a song they want to learn, I focus lessons around the requested song. I also have an extensive library of songs that I utilize. My music methodology is built around a song book that also has a CD attached. This has proven to be a lot of fun for all my students. It makes practice time more fun as they "play along" with the CD. *** Lesson Details *** With folk instruments I start by teaching the student basic chords and basic chord sequences. In the beginning I stress the proper hand position and I spend some time perfecting the ...

My 11 year-old daughter has been taking lessons for about one year. She enjoys her lessons and always looks forward to the next one.

Bruce is a skilled musician who's not only encouraging of her development, but also very patient and indulgent with her whimsical personality. Bruce's wife, Diane, always has a treat (many homemade) available after each lesson.

I highly recommend his services.

Bruce Rocks!

Bruce is a Folk Guitarist with a wide variety of instruments and skills. His focus is on folk music as this is music that you already know and know how it should sound. His primary instruments appear to be a 12 string acoustic, banjo, and 6 string acoustic, and electric. Frankly, the man is very talented, very patient, and has an excellent plan for both beginners and experts. He not only provides the correct form, but the reason why. His wife is very supportive and offers treats. A really nice touch, and a really nice couple.
Glenn W. Henderson, NV

I specialize in providing a great foundation for learning the instrument. Too many students, new to the guitar, get frustrated and quit after just a few lessons, because it falls short of their expectations and they find they are not progressing. I make certain to keep the enthusiasm intact through the entire learning process by making sure the student is actually playing the instrument. I like to think of my method as "Fast Track to Playing Guitar"; my goal is to keep the student's interest in the instrument at a sustained level while they are grasping the fundamentals. Because I teach Voice as well, and have made a living accompanying myself on the guitar, I can combine those attributes for my students, if they desire to accompany themselves while singing. I find that many of my students really enjoy that option, and I have uncovered many a student who had never thought of themselves as a vocalist, singing and playing with astounding results... My success rate of having my students ...

About Glenn

I have been active in the entertainment industry since the age of 12, when I gave my first professional performance. Prior to that I was already being introduced to music with years of guitar, and then vocal instruction. I do not remember a time of my life when I was not singing somewhere; in the house, in the yard, in the classroom. That is perhaps why I identify so well with the young people who gather so much enjoyment from "just singing" at every opportunity. I studied professionally for over 10 years with renown soprano and voice teacher Sylvia Jensen, who was instrumental in the enhancement of my vocal knowledge and technique. She is now the Director of Education for the Miss Ohio pageants of the Miss America competitions, elevating many young ladies to the national spotlight. At ...

Jeff O. Henderson, NV

I'm great with teaching you how to find the right chords by ear. We can learn notes as well as you should know both ways to learn songs.

About Jeff

Like many of my friends in high school not knowing what direction to take in life, I chose to take a business career path instead of one of a starving artist. I have a Bachelor’s Degree from Cal State Fullerton, a Masters from UC Irvine, and have had much success working for several Fortune 500 companies. However, my love of music always surfaces. And now that I have the resources and ability to spend more time having fun and enjoying life, I choose to spend some of this time teaching and helping students find a love for music. Music has always been an important part of my life. I've had piano lessons since 6 yrs of age and been the lead tenor in many show choir and vocal performing groups. Since 2005, I've been learning the guitar from many local Las Vegas artists ranging from lounge

In the summer of 2009 he and two of his fellow graduates began working as orchestra and top-40 band musicians for a well-known cruise line. One contract grew into ten, eventually spanning five years, three cruise lines, and 70 countries spread across five continents, while playing different shows every night, from instrumentalists and singers of every genre, to ...
