Chris and his teachers are fantastic. I am an older student and started from the very basics. All the teachers have really helped me. I quickly developed and can play songs, and practice fundamentals with ease. I improve my playing and skill every lesson. I look forward to every lesson. Thank you, Chris, Steve, Cam, and Mike.
I went looking for lessons when teaching myself for the last 3 years was not giving me the results I had hoped for. After just 6 months of lessons at Rochester School of Guitar I am much farther along then I could have hoped for. Chris and his instructors are patient and down to earth. The lesson style and structure help build the proper foundation and fundamentals. Numerous 1 hr class blocks are avaliable through-out the day, 7 days a week.
I have been taking Rochester School of guitar lessons for 9 months.I played the guitar before, but I wanted to have a real technical and theoretical basis to be able to move on to the next level and thus be able to read any part.The flexibility of session planning is great, but it's Chris's methodology that makes learning easy, encouraging and contextual.Let's be honest music theory can be quite off-putting. But when it is applied to practice, on song/music that you like .... it goes much better right away!Group classes may seem difficult at first sight and yet I find many advantages:- Learn from each other: being with people of different levels allows me to share experiences and also learn from my classmates- Benefit from the explanations of Chris and other teachers even when they are not for me- the pleasure of meeting my class colleagues every week- Support and encouragement from everyone: because the atmosphere is supportive and friendly- The diversity of the teachers is very appreciable, each one having his own advice, here I am equipped with different approaches!Finally not a week without bursts of laughter and frankly that contributes at least to 80% in the motivation.Congratulations to Chris and the whole teamKeep going!
I have been taking lessons with Chris and team at the Rochester’s School of Guitar for a little more then a year now. It has been and continues to be a joy to work and learn from from Chris and the other great teachers at the school. The group setting is in my opinion a positive learning environment. The break you get as a teacher goes around individually helping other students, gives you a chance to practice something you were just taught before getting back to you. I think that much more desirable then having some one standing over the top of me watching all the time. For me it is much more relaxing. I look forward to my continued learning experience at the school.
I have been going here for about 6 months and it is a great place to learn. I find the teachers all help you concentrate on learning the basics and improving every class while still keeping it fun. I’m sure that you will enjoy learning here. Give them a call.
