Paul is a very nice and understanding guy who only got to give our child an introductory lesson.

I'm glad I found Paul on takelessons.com. I was looking for someone to help me take my decent but untrained voice to the next level. Paul is committed to helping me advance toward my goal of being a singer-songwriter. In addition to the exercises we work on to strengthen my voice and gain control, he has given me some strategies to track my progress and improve more quickly. He also encourages me to take risks and go out and sing karaoke. He is caring and authentic and genuinely invested in my growth, and I am becoming a better musician because of it. Thank you, Paul!!

Paul makes learning fun and he’s very good at what he does!!!

Very patient and knowledgeable, Tom has made learning fun and interesting for my 11 year old daughter. Highly recommend!

Tom is a well informed music and guitar teacher. I tried two other guitar teachers prior to Tom and they didn’t work out for me. Tom is a natural teacher he’s got it, he just seems to make learning easy.

I have been taking lessons from Tom for almost 5 years. He is very patient and talented. I look forward to another 5 years of learning by his hand.

I appreciate Scott's relaxed style. He is able to make a realistic practice schedule for me to fit in to my work week. It is obvious he is very knowledgeable and has given me a lot of good tips so far. I would definitely recommend Scott.
Rush
I took weekly electric guitar lessons with Scott from 2004 to 2012. He is without a doubt an extremely talented, enthusiastic, and compassionate teacher. Whether he was helping me learn basic chords or teaching me complicated songs, Scott never wavered in his dedication to teaching. Over the eight years as his student, Scott gave constructive criticism in a courteous manner. He was on time, inquisitive about the songs and music I was listening to, and ended lesson with new material for me to practice. I wholeheartedly recommend Scott to any aspiring guitar student.

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.

"I have been playing the guitar for over 20 years, on and off.At first I just wanted to learn a few songs and impress people. I LOVE music and really wanted to play for myself. i have taken lessons from multiple people. Taking lessons with Jimmy took me to a new level. I thought I just wanted to to play fast but Jimmy taught me technique, music theory, composition, live playing concepts. I have learned more with Jimmy in 1 year than 4- 5 years with other teachers. The Light Bulb is on and I am playing better then I could imagine. BTW: people are impressed but I don't care, because I love music!"

"Ian is a dream teacher. Rhythmically gifted, patient and willing to tailor lessons to the level and interests of his students he also builds structure, challenge and technical discipline into each lesson. I am a late starter on guitar (ukulele) and only a beginner's knowledge of music theory . I have learned that to play simple pieces very well is as worthy as reaching for virtuosity. There is no musical genre or era he will not explore all the while maintaining technique. Building confidence, mastery and playing with other musicians is the journey and Ian is an exceptional guide. He is a wonderful teacher, musician and person to know."

She has learned a lot about the guitar in general, as well as music as a whole, and I love to hear her strumming away in her bedroom.

My first lesson was with a guitar that I’d had for years, he fixed the guitar so that I would have something to practice on, whilst he fixed the guitar he didn’t forget why he was there and went over notes and chords etc, After fixing my guitar we had time to go over the gchord and I pretty much had it as he was walking out the door. I’m very pleased!!!"

Follow these tips from guitar teacher Samuel B. to get the most out of your acoustic guitar... Let's face it. Acoustic guitars can be an outright nuisance to keep in shape.
