Extremely professional company, and strongly recommend my instructor Nobuki, who was incredibly patient and encouraging.
Teacher Tone paired me up with Nobuki Takamen.Nobuki really helped me with bard chords and power chords, which I had been struggling with for a long time. He had great tips on alternate fingering for smoother transitions. As Sonia mentioned, Nobuki is extremely patient and encouraging. I highly recommend him and Teacher Tone to anyone learning guitar.
I'd been through quite a few teachers before I signed up with Nobuki and he is hands down the best I've played with. He is patient and able to articulate something very complex in simple, learnable terms. I'd highly recommend Nobuki and TeacherTone.
Teachers who are friendly
I have training in Voice and Piano before, but decided to challenge myself with other instruments: Guitar (Steven) and Piano/Jazz (Adam). Both teachers are knowledgeable and impressively talented. Watching them play a song, encouraged me to practice. Their presence are not the usual "creepy" teachers. They teach by your side not only as your teachers but as a good friend. I felt very comfortable as a student. Waiting for the next lesson is always exciting.
Learned a ton
I took guitar lessons with Steven for over 2 years and had a lot of fun and learned more than I ever thought I would. I then got the urge to play piano so started piano lessons 3 months ago and the guys at Teacher Tone hooked me up with another great teacher.
