Radford Guitar - Offering the highest quality music services on the Eastside
GIVING STUDENTS THE SKILLS AND KNOWLEDGE TO SUCCEED!  


Radford Guitar was created by owner/instructor Sean Radford to give music students the opportunity to make serious progress in their playing ability and grow in their musical knowledge by studying all aspects of musicianship from a full-time professional musician and teacher. There is often an enormous gap between the casual lessons at the local music store that most students begin with and the level of training needed to succeed in high school ensembles, pass an entrance exam for a college music program, or become a professional-grade musician. Radford Guitar helps to bridge that gap by taking students through an individualized curriculum based on the student's needs that is focused while still being comprehensive. The goal is to turn the student into a complete musician! 

His unique instructional method combines traditional and modern teaching techniques to help students learn the skills they need to succeed in real world situations; be it in rehearsal, on stage, or in the recording studio. Because many Radford Guitar students are active recording and performing artists, Radford Guitar also offer lessons in music theory, composition, and songwriting, in addition to courses designed to help students survive in today's music business. From beginners looking to build a solid foundation to seasoned players looking to take their skills to the next level, Sean Radford can help you achieve your goals!

Here is what some of Sean's students have to say about their lessons:
 
"I took lessons from Sean for nearly five years and can honestly say that after every single lesson I left inspired to go home and practice. Sean is passionate about being a guitarist and it came through in his teaching every single lesson"
- Nicco S
 
"Not only is Sean the best guitarist that I have ever personally met, he is also a great guy and will strive to connect with his students. Because of this, Sean can teach a class that is fast-paced, fun, and fulfilling. I had several friends who were also taking lessons from Sean at the same time as myself, and they all loved him. Sean is the best.‎"
- Corey S
 
"He really has been a great teacher, friend, and mentor for my life. If you are contemplating whether or not to go with him for lessons, believe me, he is a GREAT teacher.‎"
- Ryan C
 
"I had several guitar teachers growing up and I was uninspired by many of them. When I started taking lessons from Sean, he completely changed my view about the guitar. I started looking forward to practicing and improving."
- David B
 
''The one thing that I like most about Sean's lessons is how personal he makes each one. It's very obvious from the second you get in there that he doesn't have some "cookie-cutter" lesson plan that he forces all of his students to go through; it's all tailored perfectly to the student, and he does that right there in the room."
- Kevin C
 
"I have no doubt that Sean's experience, education, and personality make him the best music teacher that you will find anywhere in the area. I cannot recommend Radford Guitar enough to any musician, any level, any age, who is looking for the best"
- Cameron H
 
"Sean is a man who honestly cares about each and every one of his students as not only a pupil, but as a friend. You simply cannot walk out of one of his lessons without feeling a sense of accomplishment. He can push you in ways that you didn't think could be pushed and he'll make it fun while he's doing it."
- Sam B
 
"The man is a role model for me, not only as a musician but as a fantastic teacher."
- Alex D
 
"Sean teaches the essentials and is the best teacher I have had. Aside from being an amazing teacher and musician, Sean is a great person who genuinely cares for each one of his students.‎"
- Jacob R
 
"When I first started, I didn't really know who I was and I've always felt that because of Sean and him teaching me the guitar, helped me find myself. With Sean, he made learning the guitar so much fun, you would come out of the lesson smiling and knowing you had a great time"
- Sarah H
 
"Sean is a great guy and a great guitarist and teaches you what's important, not just how to copy your favorite songs. He doesn't teach you how to play like Hendrix; he teaches you to play like you. He's also fun to talk to and gives great advice about music and life.‎"
- Haiden J
 
"Sean Radford is, most importantly, a versatile teacher. Not only in the styles that he teaches, but in the particular way that he teaches. He knows how to adapt to whatever student he receives. Sean is proficient in so many styles he is bound to help you improve on whatever type of guitarist you are"
- Cyril S
 
"Best teacher I've ever had. No point in writing a long-winded review. Meet him yourself, and you'll understand.‎"
- Gene G
 
"When Sean sits down with you at a lesson, he feeds you musical insight and wisdom that would be impossible to glean through books or online study. If you want to become an amazing musician, take lessons from Sean. It is that simple. Oh, and he is also one of the most chill and loving people you will ever meet.‎"
- Max M

"All politeness aside, if you want to REALLY learn to play and understand the guitar, STOP taking BS lessons from other hacks, and just go to Radford Guitar. If you're gonna do it, DO IT RIGHT!"
- Harrison F
 
"Sean is a truly inspiring teacher, imparting his astounding knowledge with patience, passion, and professionalism. From the very beginning, I looked forward to every guitar lesson I was privileged enough to have with Sean. The only reason I stopped taking lessons with him is that he wouldn't move overseas with me! RADFORD GUITAR ROCKS!!!‎"
- Rob S
 
"No matter what the style, he has the knowledge to help you grow and accelerate your learning process. There is no aspect of theory and development that will be left out. You won't be disappointed.‎"
- Adam G
 
"He was always inspiring me to try my best to do better and worked with me on the kind of music I liked to listen to and play as well. Not only is Sean a great teacher, but he's also a great friend. I am glad that I had Sean as my teacher and I learned a lot from him.‎"
