David was AMAZING! And our team thoroughly enjoyed the session. I understand that I was charged incorrectly so he was not paid right for this service. I hope that you do take care of him since I did ask to verify if the price was correct when I initially requested the service.

Nils is a capable teacher with clearly evident musical experience. I have been taking lessons from him for about 3 months now. He is particularly gifted at interpreting how a work should be played based on how it sounds or has been performed in the past, a skill he brings to bear for his students.
Richard H.
Awesome instructor! Patient, encouraging, very knowledgeable. Highly recommend!
John
Nils is an extremely knowledgeable and accomplished instructor. He has extraordinary patience and excellent teaching skills. Coming from an adult student with high expectations, Nils has constantly delivered instructional value far beyond beyond what my paid "app" lessons were able to teach me. I highly recommend you give Nils a shot if you want to take your guitar playing to the next level.

"Cant speak highly enough about Adam. I felt he went above and beyond for a guitar teacher. He challenged me to perform at an open mic fairly early (I couldnt play a full song before starting lessons) and took his own time to come support me. He teaches piano too and has a great understanding of music theory. This was big for me as music theory is fascinating to me. Our lessons were very relaxed and always left me excited to get home and practice more. My interest in guitar is fairly schizophrenic and I like to change focus all the time to cover as much ground in our precious weekly hour. Adam did a great job working with my idiosyncrasies and taught me a great amount in the few months we had lessons. (I moved out of town)"

A huge selection of instruments that you can take a detour on from the regular class.cant forget to mention the air conditioning is great.

"We are so lucky to find Nick for the first time when my daughter wants to learn Guitar. Nick is a professional musician. He is very busy but he is very nice to give a response fast and he is patient and helpful. My daughter already had 10 times lessons with Nick since Oct and she likes the teacher and has a lot of passion for learning with Nick. She is picky for teachers and does not like remote learning. But we feel excited she is happy with Nick and does well for remote learning. Nick is good at motivating her to teach what she likes and let her have more interests in the music."

"I purchased acoustic guitar lessons for my husband as a Christmas gift and he took his first lesson on January 2nd 2016. I accompanied my husband to his lesson and met Joey. He is a very nice and personable guy. My husband was very pleased with his first lesson and said Joey was an excellent teacher with a lot of knowledge and patience. My husband already knows the basics of guitar playing but had hit a roadblock and couldn't seem to go any further without some good instructions. Some people are good at playing but just don't have the skill and patience for teaching others but Joey does. Mu husband learned some new things with his first lesson and came with some homework. Way to go Joey!"
