Chris B. says, "I thought that the lessons offered were a great way to both practice as well as get feedback from the teacher and other students. The exercises are taught in a way to both improve specific playing but also improve practicing in general. Each time I go back to an exercise I feel like I played it better than the time before. The teacher is a good way of spotting poor play as well as explaining the correct way to do it so you get immediate corrections. The environment for learning is very comfortable both as a brand new student as well as after a year of lessons." Read more

Justin H. says, "Before working with Mike I would pick up my guitar occasionally, and put it down quickly, with no direction of learning. After the first lesson with Mike I was doing basic chord strumming, and within only a few weeks I was playing rhythm for some of my favorite songs. In the nearly 2 years that I took lessons with him I learned a lot and always looked forward to learning another song." Read more

Had I learned the instrument this way my abilities and progress would've grown much faster." Since I've been teaching. My students consistently comment on how much they learn and how they've noticed their abilities improve. I have a Bachelors from Gustavus Adophus College - St.Pet...

Children can start blues guitar lessons between the ages of 6 to 10 years old at the earliest. The best time is whenever they can hold the instrument easily and have the hand strength to press on the strings.

Adults of all ages can learn to play blues guitar with the right instruction and regular practice.

  • For kids, ask other moms and dads what their kids say about the teacher.
  • Get a plan on paper about when your lessons will be before you start.
  • Pay a little at first to see if you like the teacher before you pay for a whole month.

  • How long have you been teaching blues guitar?
  • Can I have one lesson for free to see how I like it?
  • What are the ages of most of your students?

  • Will you give me some finger patterns to practice at home?
  • How much should I practice at home between lessons?
  • What books should I get, and do you know where I could find used ones?
  • How many different blues guitar techniques can you teach?
  • If I'm struggling with learning, can you change the way you teach me?
  • What should I bring to class, and how long is each lesson?

  • If I have an urgent problem and need to cancel, what happens?
  • Can I choose some songs that I want to learn?

I've been taking lessons with Mike for a few years now and I'm very happy with the progress I've made. Mike is a great teacher, he's very knowledgeable and talented, and he does a really good job of incorporating my questions and interest into our lessons. He gives me good constructive feedback and always has good suggestions on how to improve. Mike has a lot of real world experience playing in bands and recording and producing music which he also works into our lessons and I find that to be incredibly valuable as well. If you're looking for a guitar teacher I would highly recommend Mike.

Al Ynigues was very welcoming and friendly, and my first drum lesson went as well as could be expected for an extremely rhythm challenged student. Mr. Ynigues lesson plan was well organized and presented.
