About Alex

I was passionate about music when I was younger, but I never had the tools to get where I wanted. Music was always a mystery to me and I got stuck learning from tabs and not stepping out of my circle of knowledge. It wasn't until I pursued music seriously that my love for the art really took off.

Kaye is patient, engaging, and encouraging. She gives simple yet thorough and effective explanations. She will emphasize concepts where you are weak until they are fully mastered. Also, at each lesson she always asks “Do you have any questions? Feel free to contact me at any time.” I can confidently recommend her to anyone who is interested in beginning to learn the guitar or anyone who is seeking to advance their current skills. She is truly a delight to work with!

I was apprehensive in the beginning for my first in person ukulele lesson. I didn’t want to feel stupid or be a slow learner. But Chris Immediately made me feel comfortable and by the end of the lesson I felt I had made a friend. He is so knowledgeable and walked me through at my pace. After watching endless hours of YouTube ukulele videos, I finally understood the concepts with Chris’s help. Can’t wait till my next lesson with him.

Rina is a wonderful teacher. From the perspective of an adult student, her understanding of the challenges an adult beginner experiences puts the student at ease when taking lessons with her. While exhibiting such empathy, Rina will always inspire the student to become a better musician. If I could give more than 5 stars, I would.

"Matt has taught me SO much and I advanced so quickly in my playing! Matt taught me how to play the songs and styles I wanted to learn. He introduced me to new styles of music and playing to open my abilities up, and backed it up with the theory of what’s happening in the music I’m playing to understand it.

I became a better player, much tighter with my timing, turned my “chunky” picking into smooth, controlled, efficient, much better sounding playing. Matt helped me lock in to better timing (even different time signatures), and through the nuggets of theory he passed on - gave me the tools I needed to write MUCH better music! I started lessons with Matt to just “learn how to play guitar better”. I definitely got that PLUS a fun well-rounded music education too!

Matt is truly an inspiring teacher who is uber friendly and enthusiastic about teaching. His teaching makes you want to keep picking up the guitar as often as possible!"

"The Man is Patient & Helpful

Since Dr. C. and I are the same age, we connected musically and share the same taste in artists and musical genres.
He takes the time to answer all questions and allows me the freedom to experiment while under his supervision.
I feel I am grasping the rudimentary basics of the instrument and look forward to my next visit.
There's an ease to our lessons and I never feel as if I'm being rushed.
Recommend him highly."

"I started with Greg after playing guitar for less than a year. When I started playing the guitar, the fretboard and music theory was a mystery and would hold me back from learning different songs, or writing my own. He was able to really help bridge the gap between theory and the fretboard.

Greg was very patient throughout the lessons, and would tailor the sessions towards my interests. A common thing we would do is go over some theory and then learn a song to learn how those concepts are applied in a real musical piece.

After my sessions with Greg, I feel like I have a solid foundation in guitar and I have the confidence to go out and learn any song or concept.

I would highly recommend! Thanks Greg!"

Guitar is an amazing instrument, not only because of all that it can do, but also because of how great it can sound when not doing much at all.

20 Different Types of Guitars & The Legends Who Played Them [Infographic]

While certain types of guitars are standard in modern culture, the instrument has a wide variety of expressions that is nearly impossible to tame. From the ancient Greek kithara to the guitar-like lute from pre-modern Spain, the many different types of guitars vary just as much as the people who play them. Some types of acoustic and electric guitars are more common than others. Steel string dreadnought acoustics and Stratocaster-style electrics are likely to be the first thing that pops i …
