Rated 5 out of 5 by StephenG Ode to Joy
Has taught my teen son for 15+ months. Very patient, engaged and focused teacher. Has a deep knowledge of the instrument and music, and can play just about anything. You may not love the chromatic scale or understand it... but you will soon appreciate it. Uses a step by step system, and tailors lessons to student's needs. Really pushes students to learn and develop confidence. Excellent in getting kids to read and hear notes. Best part is how he observes and watches everything from fingering to note reading and corrects things on the spot without missing a beat.

Mr. Parker is a great teacher, easy to talk to, very relaxed and lessons are always enjoyable. Chris hopes to take weekly lessons if he can fit in his and our schedule!

Parker is definitely a very versitale instructor. He manages to translate his obvious skill and talent into customized lessons for his students. The pace of each lesson is comfortable for me and he has a very effective approach to teaching technique as well as music theory. It's clear that this man loves the guitar and enjoys seeing others succeed at learning what could be a difficult instrument to understand. I highly recomend him

My 6 year old son has been working with Parker for about two months and is making great progress, learning playing techniques and being introduced to the chromatic scale. Parker is great at teaching guitar to young kids, very patient and persistent. Would highly recommend him to other parents considering private lessons for their kids.

Rated 5 out of 5 by LarryP Better than I could have hoped
I am an older guy with some physical issues taking my first guitar lessons. I present what I assume is an above-average challenge for Parker. He has so far amazed and delighted me. Despite his formidable skills and knowledge, there is not a whiff of arrogance about him. He is patient, thoughtful, easygoing, and has a sense of humor. The hour-long sessions combine music theory and application, guitar demonstration and practice. This, to my mind, is a near perfect approach to teaching and learning. It likely to could be adapted to any proficiency level. I am eager to attend each session.

Rated 5 out of 5 by DebbieR Parker has been an amazing teacher for me! He teaches you the theory behind the music you are reading rather than just showing you how to use guitar tabs. He selects practice songs that are fun to learn. He is a natural teacher and I am so grateful I found him to be my teacher. This has been a wonderful experience for me. I can't say enough good things about Parker and his skill on the guitar and his ability to teach others.

Rated 5 out of 5 by EbenW Really Good!
Parker is working with me and my 9 year old son at the same time. He is great at provding direction that is relevant to both of us. I have had almost 20 years of music lessons starting as a kid and Parker is by far the best instructor.Parker is great with my 9 year old son. Equally, he has been a great teacher for me (38 years old).
