About Don

We provide a complete learning experience beyond your traditional guitar lesson format! We begin by teaching you the skills needed to play and perform your music confidently. The main curriculum is our own Electric Crown Guitar Method which is the result of many years of testing what works best for students in a one on one learning situation.

Playing cool songs that Rock is a large part of our program!!! We use a large variety of popular rock songs ranging from Led Zeppelin to The Beatles to Metallica and so on. We use real band backing tracks which you will be able to take home to practice along with. We will then record YOU ...

Learning to play guitar can be a daunting task. Don breaks it down into easy to understand lessons. After each lesson he sends me home with practice homework so I constantly feel like I'm making progress.

The most important thing for me when i wanted to take lesson was that the teacher new his stuff, Don definitely does. I'm not just learning to play guitar, i'm also learning more about music.

When looking for a guitar teacher for my daughter, I was so pleased to find Don. He knew exactly where to begin with her and started her playing music right away. His creative techniques keep her engaged and excitedly looking for what's coming next. He is professional, yet warm at the same time, putting both her and I at ease. It is amazing to see the transformation in my daughter's guitar abilities as well as the transformation in her confidence. Don's expertise and patience is perfectly blended.
Thanks Don!

Don has taught my son for over four years. He couldn't even read yet and Don was still able to get through to him. Great blend of modern rock and classics. Don blends the ability to teach skills, theory, and essential building blocks while also working in stuff that the students want to play.

Also, from a technology standpoint, Don uses a great site with file uploads, customize backing tracks and the ability to schedule. I would recommend to anyone interested in learning guitar from someone who cares about his students.

I have been taking guitar lessons from Brian for a little over a year. His style is both patient and encouraging. I admire his ability to "hear the music"....every note ! I am an adult who has wanted to learn guitar for many years and thrilled to have found Brian. He truly displays a desire to teach at a pace that is comfortable. I would recommend him to folks of all ages.

Bass Guitar · In studio
Tim came recommended from a friend. I had been playing guitar and bass for close to 20 years, without ever taking a single lesson. I'd been focusing on bass for the last 10 years, and decided that I wanted to take my bass playing to the next level - theory, reading music, etc.

Fast forward a year later, and I'm reading and learning music not only from sheet music, but from jazz charts - something I hadn't even imagined going in. I've gained a new appreciation for the music as a result.

Everyone that knows me well has commented on the improvement in my overall bass playing, from the wife to people who I've spent years jamming with. In short, if you're looking to expand your abilities, you can't go wrong with Tim.
