Rated 5 out of 5 by Bumper Great Patience
I was a complete beginer and couldn't read a single note. Al showed great patience form day one when i came in with a broken string. Never once in all of my lessons did he hesitate to repeat, redemonstrate, or write it out. He is your choice if this is what you need in an instructor.

Rated 5 out of 5 by MrButters Al P. is an excellent instructor.
Glad we found him. He is excellent with our eleven year old son. If your child wants to learn to play the drums Al is the man!!!!

Rated 5 out of 5 by AngelaI Outside the box
When I made the call to Take Lessons, I was veryhesitant due to the fact that we have had some interesting experiences (via Craigslist) with a few teachers prior to Al. I was looking for someone to come in and help "develop/coach" my teenage boys band. From the initial phone conversation with Al, I was pretty confident that I made the right move. Al not only brings a fresh perspective to music, he lives it. He has helped bring honesty and insight to my boys in regards to basically everything in relation to the world of music. Al teaches them to think, "outside the box." I have seen definite changes in almost every aspect of their attitude and approach to music and creativity. As a parent, I am thrilled my kids are working with Al. They are able to take his constructive criticism or advice to heart because he has done pretty much everything in the music business. Hats off to, Take Lessons. You have a real gem for a teacher and he deserves to be recognized for it! Thank you, Al for going above and beyond for the younger generation in their quest to play and create great music.AngelaParent

Rated 5 out of 5 by CraigP Great Guitar Teacher!!!
Al is a fantastic teacher. My nephew of 10 loved the lessons. He had so much fun! Al knows how to make the lessons both fun and very clear and structured. As an adult, I was most impressed by how he can correct the student in a very encouraging manner. He has really mastered the art of teaching to a young person.

Rated 5 out of 5 by Ann-MarieC Fantastic introduction to guitar and drum lessons
Amelia is young, so she lacks the patience for a solid 30 minute lesson. Al is patient and works well with her. He has done a fantastic job teaching basic information, skills, theory and application. We are so happy to have found someone so willing to work with our four year old and so willing to break the lesson up with guitar, drums and percussion. It helps with our daughter's focus.
