Guitar Performance Systems is great! The store offers a variety of different lessons for different instruments. From guitar and piano, all the way to violin. They teach you what you need to learn to be the best possible musician you can. GPS also sells instruments. Mostly guitars and basses, as well as repair parts, accessories, and books.
They have an awesome repair shop that is run by the owner Dave. He fixes up all types of instruments and puts his heart into every instrument he touches. Dave also teaches guitar and bass. He is a great idol for any guitar player. He has experience and the talent to back it up.
Occasionally, Dave and the rest of the teachers will get together and put a few students together to cover and play songs live together. Giving experience to everyone in a fun, and great way. Its really helps developing your skills and mentality in a band setting. If you are looking to take lessons or have things repaired. This is the place to go! Nice environment and friendly people.
I came to Guitar Performance with zero experience playing guitar. After taking lessons for about two years I have seen my abilities increase tremendously. With instruction that adapts to every level of experience and talent you will never have a dull lesson. Each person has an individualized lesson that moves at the pace they are comfortable with. Such care and attention to detail would be hard to find anywhere else. In addition to great instruction the studio also offers song books, instruments, repairs and other equipment. It's really a one stop shop for all of your musical needs. I have really enjoyed my time there and I would recommed Guitar Performance Systems to anyone who is looking to learn an instrument, or even someone who just wants to improve in their chosen field. It is a highly rewarding enviornment and has truly helped me to become a better guitar player.

I have been taking drum lessons at Guitar Performance Systems for about a year. I was a little nervous at first but Mike Is great. He takes things slow and really helps you to learn. He is very flexible with lessons when things come up and I can't make my regular time or I am sick. Mike encourages me each week to learn something new and sometimes he has Jam Sessions where we can play in a band with other students. I am really enjoying learning how to play the drums at Guitar Performance Systems.

I've been goin to guitar performance systems for about 5 years now for lessons from dave and I've had a great time doin it in the process. He sets up bands for you to play with and you get to practice and perform with them. It's a great real world experiance and really is a blast for everyone. Plus i Constantly get repairs and tunes up on my guitar and the work is always great. If you need to take lessons, get repairs, or are looking for a new guitar. GPA is the way to go.

A couple years back, I was in need of a new guitar teacher and uncertain where to go due to the vast amount of teachers proclaiming that they could supplement my needs. However, Dave Meyer, the owner, guitar, and bass teacher at GPS(Guitar Performance Systems) does much more than that. He opens up all kinds of new possibilities as to where you can take the guitar in life. Not only did my guitar playing ability grow, but it helped me to focus more in school and get better grades. Learning guitar theory really challenged me and pushed me to do better each week in order to impress my new favorite guitar teacher Dave, who is now my role model in life. As soon as I started taking lessons with Dave at GPS, I began to see my skills increasing rapidly. In weeks I had learned more than I had in a year with my old guitar teacher. We were flying through the theory book and learning a new song every week. What made me most impressed about Dave, was that he could just sit down, listen to a song that you wanted to learn how to play, and then almost immediately after, he would know how to play it for himself. Moments later he would be teaching you, the student, the song that he may have never even heard before. Over the years of playing guitar and listening to music, Dave has developed a very keen and acute sense of hearing which enables him to figure out songs on the guitar right in front of your eyes, during a lesson. Not only does Guitar Performance Systems offer guitar lessons, but they offer various other instruments such as violin, piano, vocal, drums, bass, etc. Everything that I have heard from other students only leaves positive remarks about the other teachers at GPS. I have never taken any other instrument lessons other than guitar at GPS, but I know of many people who have. My sister is one, who made the switch with myself to a new teacher. Unlike me, she plays the piano and was in need of a new and very experienced teacher. Sandy, an employed piano teacher at GPS was her answer. She is just as professional and helpful as Dave and speaking for my sister, I know she has been extremely satisfied with her development of piano skills since she began taking lessons at GPS. All of the other teachers, including Mike, the drum teacher are very skilled at their instruments and enjoy helping kids become that drummer, guitarist, and pianist that they have always dreamed of becoming. Not only does Guitar Performance Systems offer musical lessons, but they have a store right inside the building offering guitars, basses, accessories, and musical necessities for musicians. Dave Meyer is a certified Fender dealer and has tons of guitars and basses that are on sale for prices you can't beat anywhere else. I have bought two guitars from Dave and I have been so pleased with the quality of the guitars over time. Along with picks, strings, foot pedals, capos, and other musical accessories, the items sold inside of Guitar Performance Systems are the uttermost best quality on the market today. Add to the fact the prime and easily accessible location, and there is no reason why you shouldn't stop in GPS and find out all of the things it can offer for you. Dave Meyer has a real musical gift and uses it to help kids learn to play the guitar, an instrument that he has loved over the years and grown to show others the impact it can have in people's lives. Overall I would give Guitar Performance Systems the highest rating on any scale. If you are in the decision making process of finding a musical teacher, I would stop right now and check into GPS before anywhere else. I know you won't be disappointed with GPS, and I wouldn't recommend another place for musical lessons besides it. Guitar Performance Systems has been helping people learn instruments that they have always dreamed of learning for years, and I know that the team at GPS will continue to do so with you.
