I am excited to guide you through your musical journey, and I really look forward to helping you achieve your goals!

I have taken two classical guitar lessons with Mandy, she is a great guitar teacher. She is patient to explain skills in detail and demonstrate performance clearly. The lesson time is fully utilized and the end time is reached unconsciously, I was totally immersed in the classical guitar world. Even though I'm still learning and enhancing the basic techniques, I can see my great progress. I strongly recommend Mandy!

I've been teaching guitar, acoustic and electric, for fifteen years. The first thing I like to do is get to know you, the music you enjoy and your goals. In a way, I like to begin by letting the student lead.

I believe anyone can play guitar. In most situations, we can learn the basics of playing some of your favorite songs in under a month. In the first few lessons we will learn open position chords and the basics of strumming and picking in 4/4 and 3/4 time. After you've memorized half a dozen or so songs this way, we can attempt barre chords and lead guitar playing.

David is a wonderful instructor, fun and really enjoyable, and excellent professional. Thank you so much, David. Andre really enjoys the lesson.
Shaina M.
Piano lessons with David are really enjoyable. I chose him because of all the reviews that mentioned how patient and encouraging he is, and they were absolutely right. I'm an adult beginner and I was afraid to start lessons for a while because I can be an embarrassingly slow learner, but now I'm looking forward to them. Another thing that I think makes him a great teacher is how he provides specific feedback. Highly recommend.
Ron E.
I searched for an excellent upright bass teacher for a good while. Then I found David Lloyd. David is patient, humorous, friendly, knowledgeable and very professional. He carefully taught me all the necessary groundwork to enable me to continue on my own for a while. In a few months I will, without question, continue my studies with David. I would, without hesitation, recommend David to anyone interested in seriously studying the Upright Bass.

Are you interested in being able to confidently play lead and rhythm parts in a band? Want to learn to write songs? Want to learn to just strum along to your favorite records by yourself?

I will teach you or your child all of the knowledge and tools needed to do whatever your dream is on your instrument. My aim is to help every student achieve their personal goals on their instrument within the context of a relaxed and patient environment that promotes a love of music!

I achieve this by:

1) Individualizing lesson plans so that each student stays engaged and learns in the style that is best for them as learners.

2) Ensuring that students learn BOTH how to play their instrument as well as the theory behind what they are playing. This creates a more well-rounded musician that is capable of problem solving on their instrument and being able to play in a variety of settings.

I have been playing music for over 10 years and teaching private lessons since 2014. I ...

Chris is great to work with. He's patient and very knowledgeable. I like that he focuses on music theory as well as playing. His approach to teaching makes for a well-rounded learning experience. I feel more confident learning songs on my own and understanding the structure behind them.
Jonas
Chris is an excellent guitar instructor. After picking up the guitar after a 40 year hiatus, he has quickly got me going again. Chris has been really good at customizing instruction to meet individual needs. For me, I wanted to get beyond just strumming chords. After just a few lessons, I feel we are well on our way to meeting that objective.

Alex has inspired my son to love playing music for the rest of his life. I can't think of a more wonderful gift. His technique in teaching allowed my son to enjoy learning guitar by playing songs he wanted to play. This made him want to practice just for the fun of it! Alex taught my son from the time he was 9 years old until he was 15. The easy going, positive attitude Alex exudes encouraged my son along his journey and made a strong bond and connection between the two of them. I wholeheartedly encourage anyone who would like to learn to play guitar to sign up for lessons with Alex!

Alex is a superb teacher and is very patient and well schooled. I look forward to my lessons every Friday.

"I began taking guitar lessons from David over year ago after several years of lessons with other teachers. I feel quite lucky to have found David, who is not only an extremely talented guitarist but an exceptional teacher. The guitar can be a somewhat intimidating instrument for a “mature adult” student such as myself, but David makes every lesson a positive, fun experience that I always look forward to. He patiently demonstrates techniques, explains concepts in clear, understandable terms, and gently critiques my playing. I have made a great deal of progress in a short amount of time under David's mentorship and I unequivocally recommend him to anyone who wants to become a better guitarist."

Steve is a very good and extremely patient teacher. As much as I may dislike learning theory, Steve knows how to bring it all together so that it makes sense...like a light bulb suddenly switched on in my head. All those pieces put together suddenly become songs I recognize. I highly recommend Steve to anyone wanting to learn from a very personable teacher."

"Francesca has been an amazing guitar instructor for my daughter. Francesca is no-nonsense, highly motivational, and makes guitar lessons fun. My daughter always looks forward to lessons, and I am impressed by my daughter's progress: she is now writing her own music and lyrics! Francesca has even managed to pull my daughter out of her shell and encourage her to sing her songs. That in itself is a remarkable feat as my daughter is very shy. Francesca has done wonders, not just for my daughter's guitar-playing, but for her self-confidence as well."

"My 12-year old daughter has been taking lessons for about 6 months now and can already play some songs better than I expected.

She really enjoys lessons with Ahmad, for the following reasons (in her words):

"He's a good teacher because he's really patient."

"I like the one-on-one lessons because it's helping me learn faster."

"He always emails the materials after class."

During the lessons I've watched, Ahmad is indeed patient and professional, yet friendly, during the lesson. He is able to, in an encouraging manner, discuss with my daughter the things she needs to practice, and gives positive feedback about the areas where she is showing improvement.

I would recommend Ahmad if you're interested in learning the guitar!"

"I honestly think one of the best decisions of my life was deciding to take a lesson with a music teacher I found through a friend. I was nine and desperate to find a teacher who would take me seriously and help me grow as a musician. I remember first liking her Harry Potter necklace, and then being so surprised that she taught me in an hour the chords I had been trying to learn on my own for six months. Six years later, Megan has become not only my mentor, best friend, and biggest supporter, but has also modeled for me how to be a strong, confident woman in today's society. She constantly pushes me to be better, and she is always there for me whether it be for music theory questions or movie suggestions. I would not be where I am today musically, lyrically, or emotionally without Megan and her amazing lessons. I owe so so much to her and continue to learn so much from every class. She is everything I hope to be and the best teacher anyone could hope for."

As a result, I feel great about this purchase and can't wait to hear how the lessons are. I'll be sure to come back and leave another (hopefully 5 star) review then."
