''Jon taught classical and other styles of guitar to my son. I am a professional musician myself, and I watched every lesson wishing that I could teach as well as Jon. He has the right balance between friendliness and professionalism. He improved every piece of music, but moved on to new material at the right pace so that my son stayed interested. He also deftly switched to acoustic and electric lessons when my son asked for those. I would automatically assume that he is one of the best classical guitar instructors in any community he lives in.

"Dr. Yerby is an excellent teacher. We were fortunate enough to have him as a faculty member at our school for several years. He is kind, creative, organized and crazy talented! Two of my children took lessons from him and we all feel the sting of his absence. I could not recommend him more highly. If you have the chance to take lessons from him, do it!!"

"Dr. Jon Yerby has the ability to explain clearly the subtle details of musical phrases and articulation. As and adult amateur, Jon gave me the confidence and techniques to explore the more advanced classical guitar repertoire. I will always remember my in-depth lessons that delt with more precise executions of musical expression. I especially enjoyed the occasional lesson that ended with a sampling of his fine home brewed beer. I feel anyone will improve significantly in their playing by taking advantage of his lessons. I highly recommend Dr. Jon Yerby"

''Jon is always a pleasure to work with. He’s great at identifying your strengths and weaknesses as a player and helping you grow into the best guitarist you can be. ''
- Emily, University of Utah
''Jon has been a great teacher for both me! As an adult beginner student, my biggest challenge has always been to memorize music. Jon made it possible for me in his first lesson by showing me series of finger progressions. Within two lessons, I not only learned how to play a piece but was able to play it without looking at a score! After taking lessons from him for last 8 months, I now have a repertoire of music that I can share with my family and friends with confidence! ''
- Stacey, Private student
“Jon has been a wonderful guitar teacher for my son over the past 5 years. Jon tailors his lessons to individual needs of his students. He has taught my son the fundamentals of classical guitar technique and reading sheet music, while encouraging him to explore a variety of styles of playing.”

''Dr. Yerby is a fantastic teacher and performer! He also knows a lot of great performers and is not shy about reaching out to them. I've had many great experiences with the artists he's introduced me to. I've also had a lot of opportunities to perform thanks to Dr. Yerby. He helped me grow much more than I had ever expected I would in guitar and musicality. He really pushes you to be your best. It was an amazing experience to learn from him."
