Joe N. says, "I was a self-taught guitarist with moderate skills looking to take my skills to the next level. Being able to write, play, and understand the why behind a guitar solo was one of my goals. I have completely met and surpassed all expectations with my guitar lessons with the Wolfman. He has the teaching experience to give me the tools and knowledge to elevate my guitar playing, and overall musicianship to a level that makes me feel confident playing rock, blues, and jazz. Whether you are a beginner or an intermediate guitarist, Wolfman has a program to get you to where you want to be and then some. Week in and week out I was given new tools, theory, and overall experience to bring to my own music and create new and more complex music than anything I have ever written before." Read more

Paul L. says, " Paul Size has been an excellent teacher by being a consitant souce of inspiration for both me and my son (who studies bass with hiim) as well. Different than most teachers who I have studied guitart with, Paul is confortable with not only teaching me specific songs I want to learn and develop my ttechnique through these songs, but has shown me the work of other musicians I am not familiar with to widen and strengthen my technique. I have studied with Paul (off and on at my own pace) for the past 4 years and he has inspired me with his own technique and gentle means of improving my own abilitiess on the guitar.

Reviews for Lawrence bass guitar instructors

Recent success stories from people in the Lawrence area.
Ian D.
I first took lessons with Bob Wolfman back in 1994, after spotting a flyer near my school. I called him on a whim, seeking someone who could adeptly teach both technique and theory, especially in blues and jazz guitar. Bob was a revelation—his fingers and brain worked at lightning speed, and I always left each lesson feeling enriched with new knowledge. After graduating, I stopped taking lessons, but the pandemic prompted me to reconnect with Bob for online lessons. Decades later, I am thrilled to find that Bob's charm, personality, and talent for guitar instruction haven't changed a bit. For anyone aspiring to become an accomplished, well-rounded guitar player, I wholeheartedly recommend Bob. His expertise spans over the years and adapts with time, making him an excellent choice for both beginners and seasoned players. You definitely won't regret it!

Karen Sarkisian was an excellent pedal steel guitar teacher for our teenage son. She provided terrific, high-quality instruction, offered a nice balance between challenging and supporting him, and also jammed together, making the lessons a lot of fun too! We were fortunate to find Karen, a highly sought steel player for local gigs, as it was not easy to find someone who not only plays but also teaches this instrument. We highly recommend Karen!

Mr. Organek was one of the most helpful teachers I’ve ever had, as another musician I know it can be frustrating teaching someone when their far behind, but he was always patient and invested in getting me where I needed to be. Aside from the teacher and student relationship, Steven has been the most valuable friendship I’ve ever made and likely will remain so.

Ed O'Brien is a terrific teacher! I've been taking lessons from him for a few months on the ukulele and would recommend him to anyone who want to learn a new instrument or improve on an old one. Highly qualified and very patient. Give him a call--you won't regret it!
