Leah is a wonderful guitar teacher. I am a beginner adult learning guitar. Leah has been great in all aspects. Every class she give me the perfect mix of technique and fun things to play. She makes learning guitar fun and at the same time challenging. She is very patient and pays a lot of attention to make sure you learn good technique. In between classes gives me notes and videos that help me practice. She is very talented. Has made my experience of learning guitar very engaging and satisfying one. I can't say enough good things about her. What a great platform. I can take classes at the time of my preference right from home!! Works very well, even when my teacher is in the east coast and I am in the west coast video streaming is perfect.

It is not easy to find a good teacher, especially for the art of flamenco guitar. At first I thought that I will learn by only watching but very soon I discovered that the road is longer and more difficult than I had imagined, and that it is necessary to have a Mentor (Maestro!) Who will guide me carefully and recognize my weaknesses and help me move forward. During my acquaintance with Leah (approximately 24 study hours) I got to know a punctual, pleasant and patient person. A person with rich knowledge about theory of music, Flamenco culture and a great learning orientation. 'Give a man a fish and you feed him for a day. Teach a man to fish and you feed him for a lifetime.' Thank you Leah, looking forward to our next sessions.

Leah met us and gave us background information about flamenco. Assessed the level at which the lesson should be given. For me as a beginner interested in flamenco, Leah gave me a great a introduction to rasgueado and falseta in solea. I left the lesson feeling I had achieved the basic understanding I had sought. Leah provided videos of what had been taught with accompanying handout so I could consolidate with practice. Great teacher.
-Bettina, visiting flamenco guitar student (Discover Flamenco Guitar in Seville, Spain)
It was a wonderful experience. I planned it last min for my husband as a surprise, Leah was very accommodating and was able to get and early morning session as we were driving off to Granada in the afternoon. My husband really enjoyed learning some basics to playing Flamenco. Leah also provided notes for him to be able to practice once we got back home. I would definitely recommend this to other travelers.

I had the privilege of knowing and playing with Leah in a classical guitar ensemble in the summer of 2013 prior to her departure for Spain. We were in the same voice group and sat side by side. During the several rehearsals sessions, she impressed upon me as a guitarist with textbook perfect posture with solid fundamentals. Never heard she ever made any mistake. I felt apprehensive and intimidated playing first time beside a professional musician with great reputation. However her friendly and easy going personality put me at ease without her realizing it. Her fabulous Suenos Gitano CD introduced me first to the rhythms of flamenco. And finally I had the opportunity to learn from Leah how to play. The experiences from the online lessons confirmed my first impression of her and much more. Her teaching was precise and organized in introducing techniques and giving out homework. The flow of each session was well thought of with maximum efficiency. She was very patient with my poor ability in chord recognition and always willing to offer help to clarify. I found her teaching inspiring and motivating. The ability of being able to watch carefully Leah’s finger movement in the recorded videos helped immensely in my practice. Will not hesitate a moment to highly recommend Leah to anyone who is interested.
-Frank, classical and flamenco guitar (online at Lessonface)
I absolutely love my weekly lessons with Leah. She is patient and knowledgeable and I would recommend her to anyone looking to learn classical guitar. I started as a total beginner to classical guitar, and I'm already reading music thanks to Leah's very clear lesson plans. Lessonface is also surprisingly easy and super accessible. This is the way of the future for people who want to study but can't afford the time/energy of going out to someone's home or a music shop..especially for specialty lessons like classical guitar.
-Adam, classical guitar student (online at Lessonface)
Leah is an excellent guitar teacher. She focuses on what you want to learn, and tailors her lessons around helping you achieve your goals. She truly understands the concepts of how to teach and is friendly, patient and encouraging throughout. I would recommend Leah to any guitarist as she will definitely help to improve your playing. If still in doubt, please read her articles posted on this site, as they will illustrate what a professional teacher she really is.
-Rik, fingerstyle guitar student (online at Lessonface)
I have to say that the experience on Discover Flamenco Guitar with Leah has fulfilled all of my expectations for introduction into this delightful musical style, since Leah was very professional and patient during the class and she includes some of the Flamenco history which enriches the experience. Was very nice to hear her play and to be able to receive all of her orientations to get the introduction to play the Flamenco Guitar style. The communication with Leah was always excellent as she responds quickly with clear indications to get into its place. As an amateur guitarist as my self to find the opportunity to have a class like this was something not to miss. Is highly recommended to any anybody how wants to start into the Flamenco Guitar.
-Victor, visiting flamenco guitar student (Discover Flamenco Guitar in Seville, Spain)
Leah has been teaching my 6 year old daughter. I was so skeptical before starting the lessons online. But I am so glad I went ahead. I would not have found Leah otherwise. Things I love about her- - She is always there to help and takes extra effort to make things work. She is always cheerful. I like her approach where she makes the student think about notes, rather than telling her offhand. She is always willing to record audio/video and send them as offline help. She responds really quickly to my messages. She is accommodating to any requests. Above all my daughter loves to learn from her. I would recommend Leah to anyone looking for a good Guitar teacher.
-Arti, parent (online at Lessonface)
Leah is an exceptional flamenco guitar player, patient and attentive tutor, and a wonderful hostess! She was very thorough in explaining not only the concept behind flamenco but the playing styles and how to improve upon technique. I even received personalized instructional videos so I can improve on my own. Don't miss this opportunity!
-Zoe, visiting flamenco guitar student (Discover Flamenco Guitar in Seville, Spain)
Leah definitely exceeded my expectations for my Flamenco music lesson in Seville! Located in the town center and Flamenco district, Leah has dedicated her life to the study of Flamenco and specifically Flamenco guitar. With degrees in Biology and Classical Guitar, she has been living in Seville to study Flamenco at a school since 2013. She was timely, professional, prepared, friendly, and ready to teach to any level of student. Even if you don't know anything about guitar or music, I would still highly recommend taking a lesson from her as an introduction and way to appreciate an art form central to Andalusian culture. She cued me into where to see good Flamenco locally, and left me with materials to kick start my study of this incredible music. Above and beyond!
-Christopher, visiting flamenco guitar student (Discover Flamenco Guitar in Seville, Spain)
Amazing Flamenco guitar lessons in one of the most beautiful cities in Spain! Leah was friendly, super talented, and an excellent instructor. I'd definitely recommend her if you want to learn classical or Flamenco guitar. I've been playing around 15 years but learned a bunch about technique and style. Best part, she offers online lessons so you can continue learning from afar!
-Mando, visiting flamenco guitar student (Discover Flamenco Guitar in Seville, Spain)
I wanted to learn some basic flamenco guitar lessons as a side trip in our trip to Seville during Semana Santa. Leah's class was a great lesson to take. As a beginner, she was very patient and encouraging. In the end, I was able to do some flamenco Solea rhythms. I learned and had fun with the lesson and would have done more if time permitted. Definitely one unique thing to do when in Seville.

“Leah Kruszewski is an exceptional guitar teacher. I wanted to learn to play guitar since I was a teenager, and feel so fortunate to have found her. She always kept such a positive attitude, with great patience for an adult learner. Every lesson was fun; and included a bit of technique, new pieces of music with increasing complexity, and a little music theory. It was the perfect pace for me. I continue to play most every day, and look forward to starting lessons with Leah online.”
-Sharon, adult guitar student
“I always look forward to my weekly lessons with Leah. She is a great teacher who makes learning the guitar fun. Leah is patient and always willing to work with me until I learn the correct way to play a note or a piece of music. She uses all kinds of music to help me learn new concepts and will play with me so I get a feel for the music. I really like learning to play guitar with Leah!”
-Keaton, age 11
“Leah is a remains my daughter’s all-time favorite guitar teacher. She is professionally trained and enjoys working with children. As a parent, I knew she was providing sufficient structure, while also maintaining a warm and supportive learning environment. Leah has my highest recommendation.”
"Our daughter’s first guitar teacher was Leah Kruszewski. She brought her passion for guitar and teaching to every lesson. She was able to bring the most out of Kinga, inspiring her to practice, memorize songs as well as overcome some of her shyness and perform both solo and with Leah before an audience."
"During the year I took lessons with Leah I came to admire her patience, attention to detail and professionalism. In addition to these fine attributes, she also has a great deal of personal talent, musical knowledge and the ability to motivate her students to do their best. I especially appreciated her knack for diagnosing technical problems and giving clear instructions on how I could overcome them. She inspired me to continue my studies and enjoyment of playing the guitar."
-Susan, adult guitar student
"My daughter was fortunate to have Leah Kruszewski as her guitar teacher in Richmond Virginia for four years. Leah is such an exceptional musician and a wonderful teacher. She is able to take a beginning guitar player, patiently teach them fundamental guitar skills, and then progress them to master challenging classical guitar pieces. Her teaching technique motivated my daughter to want to consistently practice her guitar, be eager to learn, and become a more skillful musician. It was amazing to see the progress each week!"
-K. Travers, parent
“Leah Kruszewski's guitar lessons, for an experienced guitarist, provides more than techniques. Her passion for flamenco's dramatic chording and rhythms are captivating, and with that, she conveys the style very effectively. Passion is the true source of Flamenco technique. But Leah's passion to teach is equaled by her passion to listen, deeply exploring each question, or hearing a composition idea of mine and helping me develop it improvisationally . She is agile and fluid, making each moment of each lesson a special moment. I recommend Leah for any age student - and for advanced studies, she is superb.”
-Erik, adult student
