I have only had three lessons so far, but Parker has been very easy to work with. I am sure that I present a challenge as far as structuring a lesson program. I am an older student (late 60's), I had some formal music training learning to play the accordion when I was young, but I am entirely self taught on guitar. I played guitar for several years when I was in my late teens, & picked it up again about 8 or nine months ago.
Consequently, I am all over the map in terms of my capabilities. Advanced beginner or intermediate in some technical areas, but with major gaps in my understanding of both theory and technique, Parker has done a nice job initially of not spending too much time on things I already know, but still covering enough of the basics with me to identify gaps in my abilities that need to be strengthened. I have enjoyed my sessions, and the pace has been about right so far.

Extremely knowledgeable, and best of all: he knows good tricks to teach you the content. He's done this for years and will serve you well. He can occasionally get sidetracked/off-topic, but it serves to provide insight into other aspects of the lesson and doesn't detract from the content. Overall, I'm very happy continuing lessons with him! :)

TJ is a great teacher. I have learned allot in a short amount of time.
He caters the lesson to what I wish to learn while still making sure I learn to actually play not just learn the song. I have enjoyed learning from him and am still a student.
He does like coldplay but I will try not to hold that against him lol.

Great teaching approach

My goal was to be able to play songs around a campfire and TJ has been fantastic at tailoring our lessons to this goal. Every week I learn something a little new, but I also learn a song that is simple enough for me to play and which incorporates whatever new chord or technique he's introduced. I much prefer practicing actual songs vs. excercises and he always leaves me with a new song to play. He is also instantly likeable and lessons feel more like hanging out with a friend than a teacher. I would highly recommend him as a guitar teacher.

Fun and inspiring teacher!

If you are looking for a fun, optimistic, and talented teacher TJ is your guy. Every time we get together to make music TJ is full of life and always has a smile on his face. His knowledge about music theory and history is amazing and he can back up that knowledge when he picks up any instrument whether it be guitar, piano, bass, or even mandolin. The great thing about TJ is he inspires you to want to get better at whatever it is you want to get better at. He is patient and understands everyone learns in different ways and at different paces. He can get along with anyone of any age. I highly recommend TJ as your teacher no matter what level you are at.

Alex is a really dedicated teacher. He tutored me for around 6 months and he taught me amazing rudiments and grooves that I still practice today! He's a very versatile player. Not only did he help me improve my chops, he introduced me to songs by some of the most talented artists in the world. My playing is still very influenced by his technique.
