Solid guy with diverse chops. I can learn a lot from his instruction.
Itati S.
I took 5 lessons with Ed, very great instructor. I learned a lot in those few lessons. He helped with with my pitch and with my accent that I had to prepare for an audition. With his help I was accepted into my high school’s A cappella group “Madrigals” and overall I would recommend. We made it work and tried to make the best out of the situation. Great experience:)

My kids thoroughly enjoyed lessons with Ed (both guitar and piano). Lessons started with my 7yo and when his brother turned 4yo, he started as well.

My formal background is on the nylon-stringed classical guitar, so I focus as much on fingerpicking and melodic playing as I do on strumming chords.

I've been learning with Seth for a few months now and my classical guitar has really come a long way. I thought online learning would add on to the difficulty of learning, but it really hasn't changed my experience that much. Seth is patient and offers very useful feedback and advice on pieces you are learning.

He's very knowledgeable and experienced with classical guitar and music in general, definitely recommend!
Scott
Seth is a talented guitarist and a patient instructor. He is very creative in developing techniques / suggestions to assist your understanding and progress. Useful aides he provides (via email) include PDF's with musical examples, arrangements, and videos.

Online guitar instruction is a difficult endeavour to do well. Seth is skillful at this challenge. It will be well worth your consideration to work with him. He will help you to improve your musicianship.

I am confident you will not regret the time, effort, and money invested to study with Seth.

Edwin is great at helping you build lesson & practice plans to help build the skills you want on guitar. I couldn't recommend him any higher.
Adriana
Very knowledgeable and enjoyable to learn from!
Gigi
I decided to take lessons with Edwin for guitar because I had been trying to learn on my own but I just wasn't progressing fast enough. Edwin taught me things you just can't pick up unless you work one-on-one with a professional. He is always on time for our online lessons, friendly, and patient. Every week I felt like I was being challenged just a little bit more and picking up new things. I would recommend him to everyone I know in a heartbeat!

Ian has been wonderful with my bonus son. He's learning the ukelele quickly, and I'm so excited to see the world of music beginning to open up for him!

First lesson was great. It took a little time setting up and getting to know each other. For a first lesson, I came away with some very useful information on a song I was having a problem with. I like the direction it is going. Looking forward to the next lesson.

"I love learning to play the ukulele! Brian is an excellent teacher. As I have a background in piano and some violin, Brian has helped me to integrate what I remember and apply it to the ukulele. He is friendly, interested, and patient. Most of all, he makes learning to play the ukulele fun! I highly recommend him for beginners on up!"

"Zach was the best ukulele teacher we could have asked for. He personalized the lessons around my 12 year old’s progress and interests, was easily relatable and highly knowledgeable, was always accommodating if lesson times needed to be changed, communicated after all lessons about how they went and what to work on and went above and beyond giving us a digital copy of his book and offering extra help if ever needed. We highly recommend Zach!"

"Really encouraging teacher

It has been a real pleasure to have Phillip as a teacher. He is so positive and so encouraging. Although we've only just begun, Phillip has provided a good foundation (and the encouragement) to continue to experiment and improve my skills. Thank you, Phillip. I've really had fun working with you! (The next comment has nothing to do with Phillip, but I do find Skype lessons a bit awkward. But that's just me!)"
