I totally enjoyed my class with Geoff. We immediately started my lesson with tuning the ukulele. Then we went over the cords and strumming. I have been researching on playing the ukulele and his explanation on the strumming was a lot better than the book. He is teaching me how to play by listening to the notes which is great because I would be able to play the Hawaiian music for my hula classes. In addition, his studio is only a 5 minute drive from my house, which means I don’t have to deal with traffic.

Great 1st lesson with Jarred.

I have worked with Jarred for several years, not only is he a talented player but he is very knowledgeable about many different aspects of music inlcuding theory and reading. He helped me teach a class at an adult center and showed a real ability to patiently help students throughout their lesson time. I would highly recommend!

Got the quarantine blues? Nowhere to go?nothing to do? Let's rock! There couldn't be a better way to spend your time than playing the guitar. It is beneficial to your mind and soul, and can lead you in many positive directions in life. My goal is to help cultivate excitement in my students, and to keep learning fun and interesting. We will focus on what it is that gravitates you to the guitar, and break down what you will need to learn to gain the freedom you are looking for. My aim is that you will always continue to pick up the guitar on your own out of the joy of playing, instead of feeling like you have to. The guitar doesn't have to be a rigid instruction, it is fun, free, creative and different for everyone!

Pat was an awesome instructor. I have a few years of experience with guitar, but I was still able to learn a ton, especially about slide and blues guitar. Pat kept notes on what we were talking about and followed up each week. There’s no one else I’d recommend if you’re trying to learn slide or blues guitar.

"Bill is a fantastic teacher. I went to him because I had been trying to teach myself for years and wasn't making any progress. He was able to take topics I struggled with and make them easier to understand. He always had a good drill or song to compliment lessons so I could use what I learned in a musical way. I would recommend him to anyone I know."

"Jesse has been a great teacher for the last two years for our 12 year old son who with just one lesson a week has progressed to an advanced level on the guitar and is consistently energized and enthusiastic after each lesson. Jesse is a professional and a fabulous musician and we feel fortunate to have him come to our home to teach our son. Jesse arrives on time, is dedicated and inspirational, and makes sure to schedule make up lessons when needed."

"Guitar lessons with Ahmad were my weekly retreat from a hectic workweek. Ahmad is super patient with you every step of the way. Somehow he manages to urge you to practice (something I have trouble with) without being naggy or making you feel guilty. He listens to your concerns and musical tastes and incorporates them into each lesson.

He lets you pick the genre and even songs that you'd like to play. His classical training means that you get experience in sight reading music and musical theory. I'm a bit of weird bird that I like blues and punk rock. He taught me the basics in both so I can have a great time just jamming out with him or with some of my talented friends.

Overall, if you're looking to invest some money in lessons, Ahmad is the place to go."
