When I started taking lessons with Max, I knew three chords and very little about music theory. I never thought I would get past G-C-D. His patience and structured lessons helped me become a better player. Max is very encouraging and that was most appreciated. I have more confidence in my playing thanks to him. I even understand the circle of fifths!

"Wit's understanding and non-dogmatic teaching style made classes high-quality and stress-free. Remote instruction was deeply engaging, which I wasn't expecting as someone who is used to in-person music classes. I definitely learned more than I have in any other guitar class.

I especially appreciated that class felt like a discussion rather than a recital. Instead of following one method or theme, I was encouraged to completely shift our attention at any time if there was anything I was curious about.

Wit presents difficult ideas with enough context that I, having a limited understanding of theory, felt able to keep up and incorporate higher-level concepts into my writing/playing.

Can't recommend Wit's classes enough!"

"Chris has really helped me improve my technical skills in guitar as well as gain a deeper understanding of music theory. He always takes into account what your individual interests/needs are and is super encouraging as a teacher. I started lessons with Chris having a basic knowledge of guitar (consisting of a handful of youtube videos) that I felt sort of stuck in. Even after my first lesson with Chris, I felt like I had improved and had tangible goals to work toward. My guitar playing has improved tremendously because of taking lessons with Chris and I highly recommend him as a teacher!!"

"My lessons with Aaron have been incredible and I highly suggest Aaron to anyone that is trying to start or get better at playing guitar. I’ve been an musician for years and the thing that I’m trying to learn most is how to slow down and practice efficiently. Aaron leads me into the perfect practice patterns for learning new ways to play and also explains why he does what he does. I’ve definitely gotten better at playing guitar in a much shorter time than I thought. I’m so thankful.
