Roger H.
He is very good with me. I'm not a very good student. I have bad habits and I'm overly sensitive to criticism, yet he has not made me feel bad at all about my playing if you want to call it that. I also have a short attention span and can't read music fluently. But his patience is much appreciated, and each week get a little better at it all. I recommend him to those trying their best to sound a little better.
Avery B.
It was really good information and I had a lot of fun.
Annie B.
I have been taking fiddle/violin lessons from Marc for a few months now, and it has been a great experience. He is very patient and keeps things fun by helping me learn pieces that I am interested in learning to play. I would highly recommend him for any instrument you are wanting to learn.

My first lesson with Mat and he was very professional, friendly, informative, and patient. I'm looking forward to our next lesson

Mathew is wonderful! My son loved his first lesson!
Shawn
Mathew has made learning fun and stress free for my son. Without Mat's patience and support I do not believe my son would be taking lessons for more than a couple of months much less a year later. My son looks forward to lessons, he trusts Mat, and considers Mat a friend. I can not praise Mat enough for all his contributions to my son's new skill and his part in the building of my son's self esteem!

"The first lesson with Michael was fun. He has a great personality and doesn't sound like Ben Stein when he's teaching.

Micheal has a great way of communicating the lesson information through teaching principals, he has a wealth of music knowledge and recognizes my way of learning. I liked that the lesson was broken up into segments and he ensured I understood the concept before we moved on the next portion.

Micheal provided valuable feedback during the lesson and followed up with me via email. Included in the email was tablature and backing tracks to assist with practice.

I'm looking forward to our next lesson!"

"Great Experience with Glenn W.

I started taking guitar lessons from Glenn almost a year ago. It turned into much more than that. I was wanting to expand my abilities and "play list" in preparation for performing in my daughter's wedding ceremony which was June 29, 2013. After my time with Glenn I became a better guitar player, a better singer, and he encouraged me and helped me write a beautiful song for my daughter - someting I never thought I would do - so I am now a composer. Playing a song I wrote in my daughter's wedding was a life event for me and something myself and my family will cherish forever. It has been an awesome experience and I can never thank Glenn enough!!!"
