Great store with very knowledgeable help. I have taken lessons from a couple of different guitar instructors and have learned in one year more with Pat Dietz, than I had in playing on my own in twenty years. Dietz Brothers are very fair in their prices, they are always professional, courtesy calls on reminding me of holidays and any changes in schedules. Wonderful family operated business that appears to have attracted a lot of parents bringing their children to be dropped off for the lessons in a SAFE inviroment. Manhattan Beach is very fortunate to have such a good option for learning music. As a full time critic of services I appreciate stores that are in up-scale neiborhoods that carry products that are modestly priced that gives their neighborhood shoppers a chance to try a hobby or vocation with out having to invest so much just to try it out. You can even rent instruments to get started. The Dietz Family can also be hired to play various types of music at functions and get togathers. My Real Estate Company has hired them to entertain us at our large functions and they are proven professionals that know how to make the event a success through their talents and experience of performing at various venues. I know that one of Pat Dietz's daughter takes lessons every week before my lesson with her father, I can only imagine the numerous options available for her to learn from family siblings to uncles, but she has a slot like all of the other students to show up on time on a regular schedule to learn from her father/instructor. This serves for me as a father, just one more solid example of good parenting, good people, and a honest to good place to take my business. I give Dietz Brothers the highest recommendation that I can give as a student and purchaser ""FIVE STARS""!!!!! Stop in to visit them and enjoy the serenity of their Beach Cities Store and suite of learning studios around a court-yard waterfall. M.W. Real Estate Broker, up and coming Musician.
