Real stories from real people

Since 2005, Wyzant has provided a way for people to learn any subject in a way that works for them.

Steve L.

212 Guitar lessons

Now, 3 1/2 years later, my 12-yr-old daughter is still taking lessons from Alfa and we are all very impressed with her progress. Alfa even helped my daughter prepare to play her guitar in the school talent show, and she did very well. My daughter loves playing guitar now, and she even takes the guitar with her on the airplane when she goes to visit her grandparents in the summer. We highly recommend Alfa as a guitar tutor.
Dhanush M.

17 Guitar lessons

He was extremely patient and encouraging throughout the entire duration of our lessons and would provide me with great resources to better my guitar playing and also would work with me every step of the way to learn everything about guitar, from music theory to solos. Mr. Andrea was also very kind and would be understanding of all circumstances and busy schedules and ensured that I could be the best guitar player I could be with those situations.
Tim W.

34 Guitar lessons

He’s extremely knowledgeable in guitar and music theory in general. I wasn’t looking for someone to show up with a book of chords and scales and ask what songs I wanted to learn how to play and that certainly not what Jack is about. He brings a great passion to his teaching and I can tell he is legitimately happy to see my progress. I feel more like I’m learning music from a musician using the guitar more than “guitar lessons” and I can’t express how happy that makes me. Thanks Jack.
