“I used to pick up my guitar once every 3-4 months for 10 minutes and put it down in frustration, now I have it out 5-7 times a week, and enjoy the time I am spending with it. This is all in one month. There are other places to go if you want to check off a new years resolution goal, learn 3 chords, and a couple songs. I feel that with this program is it geared to develop guitar players who want to put in the work to obtain a skill they can continue to work on for the rest of their life.”

– Brad M., Business Owner, Father of Two

And of course, it’s fun and very rewarding to see progress in my guitar playing! I highly recommend Halifax Guitar Lessons because they allow you to set your own playing goals, develop a program specifically for you to achieve those goals, and it works.”

The level of engagement from the instructors is fantastic, it’s easy to tell that they love their job and this is their passion!

“Sue & Maurice have great personalities which make learning fun. The flexibility of schedules is hugely important to me. Summer always has things going on which interrupt and I have changed most of my classes so far! I had zero experience prior and I am very satisfied so far. The only hard part for me is that now I want to buy more guitars!”

– Rachelle B., Quality Analyst

I started at zero, so each and every time I leave a lesson, I’m noticing progress and can feel that I’m building up to something that’s not easy, but super rewarding. I am definitely well ahead of where I thought I’d be after a couple months. It’s amazing how much you can learn!”

Not only have I learned how to play full songs, but I have learned many different techniques and they have given me the confidence to KNOW I can be even better.”

– Colin B., Project Coordinator


halifax guitar lessons student testimonial

“I bought my first guitar over three years ago and vowed to ‘teach myself’ with videos and books. After three years of frustration, I was getting nowhere, but with less than four months training at Halifax Guitar, my playing has developed to a level I feared I would never reach. Enthusiasm is a key ingredient to learning to play guitar which Maurice and Sue have awoken in me.”

– Barry S., Economist, Teacher, Grandfather of Three

“I enjoy guitar lessons because it is in a relaxed atmosphere and I like that I am learning in small increments. I have tried on my own but I don’t seem to follow through. I have absolutely seen improvements in my playing because I can now follow a song with another guitar player and I am starting to learn to play and sing at the same time.”

– Geri A., Mother of Four, Office Manager

“Maurice is a friendly, easygoing guy, which makes for a fun and enjoyable learning experience. I would absolutely recommend him to anyone looking to start learning guitar or have reached a plateau at their current skill level. He uses certain techniques and teaching methods to keep the process enjoyable, yet pushes you to make progress and go beyond what you think you could do.”

– Alex A., Aircraft Mechanic

“I have aquired alot of education and training over the years, some more fulfilling than others, but nothing is more fulfilling then leaving a class/lesson/training session being able to do something you couldn’t do before and that’s the feeling I have after every lesson. Maurice’s ability to use numerous techniques, the way he builds your confidence, I can’t imagine there is anyone he could not teach to play guitar.”

– Tim M., Officer, Canadian Military

“The thing I enjoy the most is every issue or problem that I have trying things he is always quick to point out an easy and quick fix that I can incorporate instantly into my learning. I would highly recommend Maurice to friends and family cause of his patience, skill, and the way he can identify with each students goals and skillset. Maurice and Sue make their home a fantastic place for learning with their positive energy, cheerful demeanor, and comfortable setup. You feel at home.”

– Glenn F., Retired Military Veteran

“My son likes his lessons. He is often very excited when he knows that the lesson time is approching. What I like most is that he is happy doing this. Only a few weeks back he did not know anything about guitar and now there are few songs he can play and we can recognize them.”

– Edvard H., Father of two, Business Owner


halifax guitar lessons student testimonial

“I enjoy lessons with Maurice because everything is tailored to me. If I get a concept, song or chord right away then we move on to the next thing, but if I’m having trouble we hold off and work on that skill until I get it down. We move at a pace that is dictated by progress. I’ve only been playing for a little over a month now and can I play more than 6 chords and 6 songs, but not only that; I’m confident in my ability to play them.”

– Kat B., University student, Actor

“I do enjoy my lessons with Maurice. He takes time to explain things, and manages to adjust his instruction to your learning speed. He sees your ability when you do not, and encourages you to push yourself when you don’t believe you can. I’m ecstatic about my progress to date. I honestly thought I’d still be choppy and playing unintelligible music.”

– Geoff H., Father of two, Paramedic


halifax guitar lessons student testimonial

“Maurice has taken me from no guitar experience to playing several songs in only a few lessons. When I started a few weeks ago I did not know a single chord of music nor did I even know how to strum correctly. I have actually progressed much quicker than I thought possible in such a short time.”

– Robert C., Retired Military Veteran

“My son enjoys his guitar lessons because Maurice is fun and very smiley! He looks forward to going to the lessons and for me this is the best test! Thank you so much for making my son happy and confident!”

– Sonya V., Mother of four, Lawyer

“I very much enjoy my lessons, and I look forward to going each time. It never feels like a chore or an errand. Every time I pick up my guitar, whether it’s just coming from a lesson, or practicing at home, I feel such a sense of pride, and I am so grateful for how patient he has been with me. I am extremely satisfied, and am surprised by how much I have learned so far.”

– Carol-Ann M., Corporate Strategic Planner


halifax guitar lessons student testimonial

“I enjoy these lessons immensely! I searched for lessons for about a month and really can’t believe I found Halifax Guitar Lessons and Maurice. It was absolutely everything I was looking for in an instructor, methodology and environment. I really enjoy the teaching style! It is very stress free. I am progressing at my pace, not someone else’s. I can’t believe my improvement in just 6 short weeks! I am able to see this improvement every week!”

– Jamie H., Retired Human Resources Director

“I like the fact he works on building each week on what you have learned. If you are struggling he takes time to ensure you get it before moving on. He is genuinely interested in what you want to learn and works with you at your pace. I appreciate the time and flexibility in the schedule especially with my busy un-predicable work schedule.”

– Todd R., Senior Manager, Auto Industry

“He has learned many new songs in a short time. He is strumming songs which sounds great and I find that he never minds going to practice his guitar when I tell him it’s time to. Maurice is very patient with kids and makes sure that they understand what he is teaching.”

– Jennifer P., Mother of 2, Dentist


halifax guitar lessons student testimonial

“I have definitely noticed an improvement in my guitar playing since I have started. I started from barely knowing anything to being much more confident with a new challenge. I remember when certain chord shapes were sometimes a mental struggle, but over time it feels much more natural. It has only been a positive learning experience that will give me a lifelong skill in the end.”

– Karen M., University student, Nurse

“I am very pleased with my progress, which results from the confident and competent lessons I receive from Maurice. His ability to teach as opposed to just show has been critical as my enthusiasm continues to grow. He has real talent with regard to mediating my enthusiasm and reality. He is a patient individual who projects his passion into the lesson and leaves you feeling accomplished at the end of each lesson.”

– Dave M., Business Owner


halifax guitar lessons student testimonial

“We have definitely noticed improvements. In previous lessons he kept repeating one or several strumming patterns for months and this made it boring and uninteresting for him. He comes from the class humming a song usually and although he does not play a lot at home he showed us that he knows several things.”

– Peter I., Father of two, Engineer


halifax guitar lessons student testimonial

“If we compare it with our previous experience, we are really satisfied as he has made significant progress, he loves playing guitar and he does it almost daily. We look forward to what our kids are gonna learn next and we appreciate the fact that they have fun and want to go forward.”

– Peter I., Father of two, Engineer

“When he started, he didn’t even know how to hold a guitar, and in such a short time, he plays actual music. He has joined and quit many things, he never complains about guitar lessons. We are so pleased, he is learning so much faster than we ever thought possible. We are so proud of him.”

– Renee P., Mother of two, Social Worker

“I have noticed a huge improvement in my playing and skill level since beginning lessons and my confidence has grown in leaps and bounds and that that was a major issue for me at the beginning. I really enjoy my lessons with you because you tailor your sessions to suit each individual’s level of competence, style and music preferences. I liked that you acknowledged my prior experience and helped me to build upon as well as learn new skills and habits which helped me to progress. Your lessons also allowed me to maintain my own style and individuality.”

– Kathryn D., Retired Civil Servant


halifax guitar lessons student testimonial

“I love guitar lessons because they keep the learning fun while pushing just enough for success. The best part about lessons is that it is casual, but professional. I started after years of thinking I could try it myself, but actually not even able to tune my guitar. After first meeting I learned how to tune my guitar and play a song before even committing to lessons! They took my previous knowledge about music and built on that to give me personalized lessons so that I could get to do my best.”

– Christina H., Elementary School Teacher


halifax guitar lessons student testimonial

“I have to admit, we had some reservations about our son taking lessons. He is a kid who can be hard on himself, and we thought that when he realized learning guitar was not going to be a quick process that his desire might quickly fade. However, Maurice and Sue have somehow managed to make guitar a highlight of each week for him. He loves his lessons. He looks forward to going and comes out of each lesson with a huge smile on his face”

– Erica B., Mother, Psychologist

“I enjoy guitar lessons at Halifax Guitar Lessons because they are lots of fun!, I have met some friends here as well. I have improved because now I can play electric guitar AND acoustic guitar. I’m happy and I find learning easy. I would tell all my friends to come here if they wanted lessons too because at the last place I went I barely learned anything and now I have a whole binder full of songs that I can play. This is a good place!”

– Myah S., Student

“Being an high school teacher in the province for the past 12 years has given me some insight into both sides of the student-teacher relationship. An educator must be knowledgeable, patient, versatile, and creative – Maurice has all of these traits. Finally the last piece that makes Maurice’s school above the others is the trust you develop working with him. Trust goes a long way in learning, it could be the greatest relationship that a student and teacher have. Give Maurice a try, it has been the best decision I have made in my guitar learning journey so far.”

– Shawn Y., Father of two, High School Teacher


halifax guitar lessons student testimonial

“I started from zero, when I found lessons I didn’t even know how to hold a guitar. But now I can play some songs and am more comfortable with the guitar. One thing I liked is from the very first day you start working on songs along with learning the basic information. Guitar lesson with Maurice it is so fun, he teaches in such a way that you learn while having fun. He is so friendly, he will keep explaining the steps until you get it right. “

– Gurtej S., Univeristy Student

“What I like most about taking guitar lessons from Maurice is seeing my skills and sound develop, I find it very rewarding, as well as learning new songs. I have noticed amazing improvements in my guitar playing since I’ve started. I started my first lesson without ever playing before, and I never thought my guitar playing would be where it is now in such a short period of time.”

– Josh R., Retail Employee

“I enjoy my lessons with Maurice. He’s easily approachable, patient & makes learning fun. He’s amazing the way he can know where you are at, critique & guide you in your progression. I definitely would recommend him.”

– Lexine L., Retired Insurance Broker


halifax guitar lessons student testimonial

“I had tried learning on my own for about 2 years, without a whole lot of success. After the very first lesson and each lesson with Maurice I can see an improvement with my playing because they are tailored to fit my needs and not a generic lesson from a book. “

– Tony B., Manager, Electrical Department


halifax guitar lessons student testimonial

“Having only worked with a canned learn-to-play-guitar package before, I thought the benefit of lessons would be the immediate and on-going feedback for corrections, etc. It was Maurice’s interest in teaching to achieve my own goals, and his focus on the teaching methods that impressed me. I could tell I was going to get not only the feedback and corrections I sought but also the training was going to be both customized and structured to suit my goals. I knew I didn’t need to consider trying someone else.”

– Niels K., Father of two, Engineer


halifax guitar lessons student testimonial

“At this stage in my life I wanted someone to understand that being an adult it is not always easy to learn quickly and in a busy world with working and family times are tight and practice is not always as it should be. I was to the point of giving up trying to learn guitar even though it was a huge desire for me. I feel in the very short time I have been there which is just a few weeks that I have learned more than I thought I would. I even look forward to practicing and sometimes can hardly wait til I get home to check out the new things he has shown me.”

– Lyn M., Retired Office Administrator
