Terry Mills, Guitar Lessons: Sebastopol and Santa Rosa: Reviews

I am a former student of Terry Mills and was very sad (but happy for him) to see him move away from Stockton.
I enjoyed my entire 13 years as a student of Terry- he is very patient with his students, very practical and precise in his method of teaching. I learned A LOT from this excellent musician and still enjoy playing immensely.

Student's comments - Former student
"Terry has been especially good and generous in helping me develop the music in songs I've been writing. He's sensitive to what I want to learn and teaches me what I need to learn, and does it with a fine sense of humor about it all." Oak Reinier

I had been struggling with my guitar for several years before I started taking lessons from Mr. Mills. By the second lesson I was reading notes! I learned fast under him! He also did a good job of making guitar simple and understandable. Definitely recommend him! :D

Terry always bent over backwards for me to teach me exactly what I wanted, exactly when I wanted it. He is extraordinarily flexible, talented and inspiring in his teaching style. I give him 5 out of 5 stars - and I'd give him more if I could.

Terry is an accomplished guitarist and a seasoned music educator. His work with
our student guitarists has been invaluable.

“I totally love Terry, he is an incredible guitarist, has the patience of an angel, and never gives up on me even when I give up on myself. We are so fortunate to have him teaching guitar in Sonoma County.”

"Being a self-taught-never-quite-go-it right guitarist of some 50 odd years, I needed help. As a student of Terry's, I am filling in the of gaps in my musical knowledge. This has given me greater appreciation of the instrument I play, but more importantly, increase the enjoyment and satisfaction I derive form my practice and playing. His teaching style satisfies my need for challenge with with plenty of opportunity for success."
