What Students Are Saying About Metairie Music Academy!

Jessica Mathieson

I am very pleased with every aspect of my experience with Sid and Metairie Music Academy. From the very first phone call, Sid was helpful and informative. 

My son wanted to learn to play guitar and, as someone who cannot carry a tune in a bucket, obviously I reached out to the professionals. Sid is beyond patient and has changed his curriculum countless times to accommodate the mood or attention span my son has on any given day. I am very grateful to have found Metairie Music Academy so that I can help my son foster his love of music with someone who is just as invested as I am in his progress. I confidently recommend Metairie Music Academy for anyone of any age or experience level. “Love what you do” is clearly a mantra of this business.

My 9 year old son started lessons and absolutely loves it. Sid has been just awesome. He teaches in a way that is fun and easy for my son to learn.

Sid came highly recommended to us while I was conversing with someone that my daughter was interested in guitar lessons but did not make the age range requirement listed on some websites we checked out. 

She started with Sid at the age of 6 and has grown to have a deep appreciation for his teaching and looks forward to going to each lesson. She does have a large array of songs under her belt and is learning the notes/ technique amd building rhythm as she grows. We cannot speak from the roof tops loud enough how truly awesome He is- both as a teacher and mentor. He truly cares about what makes her light up and makes it a point to choose relevant songs that peak her interest making practicing at home fun!

My 14 yo son says the lessons are fantastic! !!!He is learning new songs, practice methods and music theory. The subjects are presented in an engaging and interesting way. 

My son is always looking forward to his lessons.and is becoming a really good guitar player, he even started to improvise and create his own music. Great teacher!!!

I’m writing this after my 3rd lesson. And although I’ve taken guitar lessons (on and off) for yeeeears, I’m already doing things I’ve never done!! Sid listens and attends to your goals, meets you where you are at, and remains responsive to what you need

My son is 14 and just started guitar lessons with Sid about 4 months ago. I sit in on every session. It’s hard to describe how much teaching flexibility Sid possesses.

I watch as Sid meets my son where he is (from a talent and interest standpoint) and see the excitement as he varies his approach, switching techniques, having fun (tapping his foot to the beat of the music), and encouraging songs that my son listens to already. It’s obvious that Sid has been teaching for years because he is extremely talented at not only the guitar, but also just being a great teacher. My son has already been exposed to over 6 songs and the count continues to increase. It’s fun and exciting for him to learn.
