Eric has been the most patient, well-prepared teacher I have ever had. Very concise and a great player himself. Jumped right into lessons that pertain to my playing style and my musical interests. Looking forward to continuing to grow as a player with Eric

I am quite pleased with Joshua's growth thus far! After playing his bass guitar with a start up teacher for 3 years, Joshua was ready for more. He needed someone new to push him to the next level. Not only is Damien perfecting Joshua's skills, but is introducing Joshua to music composition. I absolutely LOVE THAT!!! Thank you Damien because every time we visit, Joshua leaves with something new! FABULOUS INSTRUCTOR!!!

Damien is extremely professional and does an excellent job explaining the fundamentals. As Albert Einstein said, "If you can't explain it simply, you don't understand it well enough." Damien has a way of explaining concepts so they are easily understood and retained, even for more complex subjects.

Beginners learn proper technique from the start,including posture,choice of instrument,warm-up exercises and drills that will stretch your abilities.You will learn the notes on each string,gradually combining more notes and strings by playing classical pieces from different composers.

My lesson was great. I’ve struggled for years to really get everything to come together, and I’m already starting to see and feel how Rick is, and will continue to, make that happen.

I like to make learning an instrument fun and easy to fit into your schedule!

If you're an adult finally getting around to learning your dream instrument or a child following your passion of playing music I tailor your lessons specifically to you. We look at what you want to play, pick specific songs that you want to learn, and learn the techniques you need to play these songs. It sounds simple, but it's so effective and much more fun to learn this way!

If you have any questions for me hit the "Ask Grant A Question" button, I would love to hear from you and discuss your interests in music!

I just had my first lesson with Brett and he customized it according to my individual needs and circumstance. I am passionate about guitar and folk music but have no musical experience. Bretts plan is to start with the very basics and move forward from there. He was very patient with me and his directions were easy to follow. Though I am a senior I feel like I am 20 years old again and learning a new skill. Thanks Brett

Each lesson is designed on the level of the student's ability from beginner to advanced. Rock, R&B, funk, jazz, blues, POP and country music. I like to use song learning as a vehicle to sharpen your skills. Learning skills through songs is more fun for beginners. More advanced students will work on everything from theory, reading, harmony; and how you can use scales and arpeggios in a number of ways over several different styles of music.

Stephen is a brilliant and experienced guitar instructor. My wife signed me up the electric guitar lesson with Stephen after my retirement about a year ago. I told him that I had no music background and just wanted to be able to play the 70’s songs I like. The lesson plan is based on my level and my goal. I started the fundamentals and now I can play most my favorite 70’s songs. I enjoy every lesson with him. What I learn in one hour class can fill out the rest of the week. Thank you for making my retired life so meaningful. “It’s never too old to play guitar! “ I would highly recommend Stephen to anyone who wants to learn to play the guitar!

Amazing guitar learning experience with Stephen!!!
Stephen is a very knowledgeable and professional music instructor. I have been taking lesson at his studio for about 8 months. I go there once a week for my 45 min class and practice 15 min every other days at home. Now I can play the musics I like. Also, during the lesson, he always put the me in the live band situation so I can react to the beats and rhythm from different instruments. Fun!!!!!!!!!

Classical Guitar Lessons

The classical guitar, often referred to as the Spanish guitar, is the father of the modern-day guitar. Normally, the classical guitar is played with the fingers, rather than a pick, and uses nylon strings and a wider fretboard to allow for more complex fingering positions. The Spanish guitar has a beautiful rich tonal quality, and with proper technique, it creates an earthy yet romantic sound. Many instructors will teach you how to read classical guitar tabs, how to tune your guitar, proper classical guitar technique, Spanish guitar scales and will help you if you are looking at buying a classical guitar. In addition, our certified instructors here at TakeLessons are friendly and eager to help you learn to play the guitar. If you enroll in our classical guitar lessons, you will have the opportunity to learn and gain insight from seasoned professionals who love the classical guitar. Our mentors will be happy to share tricks and tips on how to play the classical guitar as well as provide you with the inspiration to continue working on your craft, especially since learning to play the instrument can be a bit challenging in the first few weeks. Check back here often as soon we will be posting articles such as “How Do I Choose a Classical Guitar,” “Easy Classical Guitar Music” and “Classical Guitar Tabs.” In the meantime, apply for classical guitar lessons in an area near you so that you can begin your new musical adventure.
