What our students say
Joined the Toronto Guitar School after researching different options, as I was looking for opportunities to learn and play the guitar more. There are a variety of classes including drop-ins, which make it convenient for people with flexible schedules. The classes I have taken at this school are excellent! Guitar instructors KC and Scott strike a great balance of explaining technique and getting us to play, so with every class you will feel yourself getting better. Glen, who manages the school and also teaches (vocals, other instruments) is welcoming and genuinely interested in helping people learn. Together, they make learning music (guitar for me) interesting, fun and achievable for their students.
I absolutely LOVE this school. These guys deliver in every possible way: quality of instruction, pricing, vibe, atmosphere. I am so lucky to have found this school. If you want to learn to play or improve your guitar playing, sign up now - no more excuses. These guys are the real thing!
I am really impressed with the enthusiasm, energy, and passion of the teachers. I started classes this fall with Andre who really makes learning fun, interesting and challenging. Its great learning to play with others in the group class, and everyone gets individual attention too. Love this school and highly recommend it!
Amazing experience thus far!! You get to learn from people on the music scene, a very hands on approach!! If your looking for specific skill sets just let them know and they do everything they can to accommodate your request! Glen is a great facilitator and listener. Give the school a try!!
I've attended the ukulele, songwriting and ensemble classes. Its been a lot of fun jamming with people and the teachers are very helpful to the students. I'm definitely looking forward to my next class. Great school. Highly recommended!
The classes are small and instructive. The group is led by enthusiastic, well informed musicians (in our case Scott) who enjoy teaching and having fun with the class. Everyone is focused on the music and each week we take something away to improve our love of music and guitars.
I'm in the Ensemble class and have enjoyed every minute of it. Our teacher keeps us challenged and engaged with new pieces and provides constant support. My guitar soloing has improved 100% and keeps getting better. Love it!
Thank you Glen and everyone at the music school for hosting and running the guitar classes. The effort you put into creating a welcoming & encouraging space, have fantastic instructors, stay in touch with your student community, consider different needs, welcome suggestions, host socials and share the joy of musicianship - is very much appreciated! The teachers are very patient and enthusiastic in their teaching styles, breaking it down for beginners like myself. Because of these classes, I can now finger-pick Blackbird (yes the whole song!), the riffs and chords to Brown Eyed Girl, Wish you were here, play the 12 bar blues AND I picked up a few strum patterns that I apply to other songs. I am seeing very tangible progress in my playing level and I look forward to learning more.
