My review is basically the same as the one below - my son is a little slow at guitar and Nelson is SO patient with him. You can tell he loves music and he really enjoys the teaching process. What a great find.

I have taken 8 lessons with Nelson and I'm very happy with him as my teacher. He is an accomplished guitarist, but more importantly, as a teacher he's very patient and allows me to learn at my own pace (which is slow). I would recommend him to anyone wishing to learn to play the guitar.

About John

Hello, Thanks so much for taking the time to inquire about studying music with me. Music and studying music has always been a passionate experience for me. I have been so blessed with the teachers and fellow musicians in my life. You should realize that your study of music may start with me, but it will last your entire lifetime. I hope that all of your life you will have a rewarding relationship to music and the spirit of great sounds! I have performed in great jazz clubs in New York, on Broadway, and performing arts centers across the country. I'm currently playing in many great performing ensembles. I have put out two CD's as a leader and played on multiple CD's for other artists. It has been my pleasure to teach privately, as well as in the classroom for 15 years. I ...

Love my lessons

John is an amazing teacher all around. Very professional and good at getting me to understand things which may be a bit confusing. I am currently reading and playing between four books and I never thought it would be possible especially just after taking lessons for a year. Sometimes I feel a bit frustraited when I am not able to play certain pieces or when I dont understand a concept but John is great at breaking everything down and making it easier. I am now realizing how my piano skills can be utilizied in my other music projects. When I attend my lessons I am reminded why I love having them so much. With him as my instructor I can see my skills improving and I know I will only get better. I recommend piano lessons to everyone and if you are looking to have a great teacher John is your go to person !

Felt like an afterthought...

I could tell John was very into music, but not a strong ukulele instructor. He might be a wonderful guitar teacher or for other instruments, judging from the other reviews. My experience was that he did not send the lesson plans in a timely fashion, and was not fully present while we were in our lesson. Often he would spend time "trying to figure it out" on the uke rather than be teaching me something. He insisted on playing elaborate harmonies, while I strummed basic ones and would get lost in playing rather than paying attention to how well or not well I was playing. It felt more like an opportunity to jam out rather than teach at times. When a lesson is 30 minutes long structure is very helpful. I also felt like he had no idea what he had already taught me week after week, so a lot of lessons were repeated. To be completely honest, I started to feel like I would rather be somewhere else than learning an instrument, which is sad b/c I am very excited about learning. Again from the reviews he sounds like an incredible guitar teacher, so I would say that it's possible he was not as interested in uke teaching, but may be an amazing teacher for other instruments.
