Will
After a long time trying to find a guitar instructor with affordable rates and availability that suits my needs, I am so glad to have been referred to Nathan. He radiates kindness and patience, making it easy to quickly feel comfortable with him. He moves at my pace and shows interest in the songs I want to learn and my own goals rather than working from an agenda. Nathan offers Covid conscious in-person as well as Zoom lessons which is convenient. I highly recommend him and I am so glad to learn from him.
Brian
I've worked with Nathan as a songwriting collaborator on various projects in the past and I can attest to his talent as a guitarist and songwriter. Nathan is a very innovative composer and an incredibly kind and thoughtful person. I've had the pleasure of co-writing and workshopping songs with him and it's always an inspiring experience. I would strongly recommend him as a guitar instructor and songwriting teacher.
Adam
Nathan’s optimism and continuous support helped reignite my passion for writing and playing! It’s obvious that he puts in an abundance of time and energy into personalizing a lesson plan for you, constantly assessing (and reassessing) your goals and then laying out achievable steps you can take to reach those. He has never been discouraging or judgmental; on the contrary, I look forward to sharing my progress with him each week. He breaks otherwise daunting concepts into small, palatable portions, teaching and incorporating into your practice regimen seamlessly. Outside of musical theory and technique, he also has advice for a number of problems, whether it be regarding networking, stage presence, recording, or less music-based problems such as burning out or handling drastic life changes.

If you’re looking for a talented, empathetic teacher who truly cares about you and your pursuit of music, Nathan is my only recommendation!

Everyone learns differently and I try to make each lesson fit their needs. I find what goals you have and make a lesson plan specific to you. I have 10+ years of experience teaching ages 5-80. I have learned that no student is alike. At the end of the lesson I want everyone to have fun while learning.

I have been playing guitar for 13 years and have taught for around three years. I have experience playing rock, pop and jazz and have extensive work experience with kids. I have studied music at three different summer institutions including New York Summer Music Festival, Litchfield Jazz Camp and Interlochen Center for the Arts. I have most recently earned my Bachelor's Degree in Music and Psychology. I have experience performing in Jazz Competitions in the United States and Canada, arranging scores and using GarageBand and Logic Pro X for music production. I have worked with students who are new to guitar and those who have been playing for a few years. I love teaching guitar and sharing my passion with others!

Sarah
Joey is an amazing and patient teacher! I had never taken lessons before so it was slow starting out, but Joey is very skilled and was extremely helpful. I continue to take lessons and will continue to for a while.
Celeste
Joey and I were in the same composing class during undergrad and they kindly offered to teach me guitar. Since I was at a beginner level, I had to learn techniques and music theories from scratch. As a result of their teaching, I was able to progress efficiently and enjoyed their selection of practices. In addition to our guitar lessons, Joey also answers my questions outside of class times, which has been extremely helpful during the pandemic. Joey is a great teacher who's passionate about music and teaching. I strongly recommend Joey to anyone interested in taking guitar lessons.

"I picked up my first guitar around 1960, and took my first real lesson - from Jeff - about 55 years later. I had played off and on before, mainly off, but when I retired from doctoring my wife bought me a package with TakeLessons, and Jeff was the closest to home and had good reviews. I highly recommend him. We focus on the rock, R&B and such that I grew up on. Jeff's knowledge of music is encyclopedic, and he is able to teach it to an old man like me. He plays just about everything, from Jazz to Ukulele. I give him 5 stars. I have learned a lot, limited only by my own lack of practice time, and over the years I have also gained a good friend. Give Jeff a try!"

"I used to play some guitar when I was young, but I had never taken any lessons. When I played with other guitarists, mostly in church settings, I would play simple cords and let the other guitarists cover up my mistakes. Now that I am 60 years old, I decided to make an effort at really learning how to play. I have only been taking lessons for 2 months, but Alex has been a great choice of instructors. He is familiar with the main type of music I like to play, contemporary worship music, and also is knowledgeable about Irish / Celtic music which I also love. He offers very helpful suggestions and instruction, and is very patient with the fact that I am 60 years old, and much of this, especially guitar tablature, is like learning a new language. Each lesson has some more insights and instruction to help me become a better player. I would recommend Alex to anyone looking for an instructor."

"I have been taking lessons with Jimmy for about 3 years now and couldn't be happier. I remember being amazed at how quickly I progressed early on, which instantly got me hooked. He focuses hard on your guitar foundation as well a your music theory foundation, not just on how to play a few songs. Since Jimmy has his own studio, you have the capability to record your own songs as much as you would like. The studio also provides a new way of learning that no where else offers by going through your own recordings step by step to pinpoint problem areas. I look forward to going to Jimmy's every week. He is a funny, kind and easy to talk to guy with a passion for what he does.

"I'd say Kevin is by far the best teacher I've ever had for acoustic guitar. I'm left handed, which require a special technique of instruction. I'm also well up in my years and have always wanted to learn guitar for my own enjoyment. He's patient with me, which is great, and is very fair with the time he provides for the cost. He goes the extra mile to assure I gain confidence and fulfillment with my playing. I have plenty more to learn and I only want Kevin because he teaches in a sincere and meaningful way. I'm going to start singing with my playing and am very excited about that. Kevin is awesome!!! He's genuine. I highly recommend him to anyone, at any age."
