Elizabeth is an amazing teacher! She was/is able to identify my learning style and meet me where I am musically. She keeps me challenged but successful in my endeavor. Elizabeth is VERY patient and kind and encouraging. I was hesitant about fulfilling my dream of playing the harp (as an adult learner), but am very excited about the progress I am making thanks to her. Elizabeth makes me believe in myself and my ability to learn to play and enjoy the harp!

As a family, we are delighted to recommend Miss Elizabeth G. as a musical instructor. Not only she is a very successful and accomplished professional musician playing on recognized stages with well renowned international stars, she has “the personal touch” to connect with kids and teach effectively her knowledge.

Miss Elizabeth explains clearly the musical concepts and is very supportive. She can identify the learning style of our daughter and adjusts to optimize her improvement constantly. Personally, our daughter connects very well with her and has develop a great admiration towards her as a role model.

Also, the music classes are giving our daughter more confidence to play in front of audiences and we recognize the improvement in that aspect of our daughter’s personality.

In summary, we are have been blessed to find an outstanding music professional to teach our daughter and we gladly recommend her.

Excellent Teacher

Dennis is an all around great teacher. He is easy and comfortable to work with, but knows exactly how and when to get things done. Most importantly for me, Dennis was able to let me know which things I needed to work on to better my musicianship while also helping me figure out how to utilize what I had already accomplished to achieve new goals. As a metal player getting into jazz improvisation I had some really strong skills and many things that needed serious work. Dennis was able to help me use my strengths from previous experience to become better at something entirely new.
Mindful of tradition, but more interested in innovation, Dennis has a vast knowledge of modern styles, chord progressions, chord shapes, and scales you can't just learn from any guitar teacher. You can hear it on his record; Dennis is just as much of an individual in his playing as he is in his teaching. Unfortunately due to relocation I can no longer take lessons from Dennis but he got the ball rolling for me into new worlds of guitar playing and musical thinking that has been incredibly valuable to me.

I decided to re-kindle my guitar playing skills after putting down the instrument for several years and not knowing what results to expect. I was amazed to find my ability to play quickly returning while taking lessons with Dennis. He was patient, encouraging and always professional and courteous. I am now practicing every day and continue to progress. I would encourage anyone seeking a skilled and talented instructor to sign up with Dennis. He has versatility with many different styles of playing and accomplished at them all.

Take Lessons From This Guy!

I was fortunate to meet Dennis and partake in six months of intensive weekly sessions which were no-nonsense. My instrument of choice is the acoustic and electric guitar.

Dennis adds a shade of color to the audible realm of musical expression that invites all practitioners to give ear to Dennis' command of the guitar. Ask him what he's been working on lately and he will show you something; it's more than enough to inspire you to keep learning and discover your own musical voice.

Dennis was humble in sharing his credentials and is a continuous student of learning himself. He clearly shows no bias and imparts his knowledge to anyone willing to learn.

Due to relocation, we could no longer meet up in person for lessons. But now that Dennis is geared up to provide teaching services online, I can still effectively take lessons regardless of location.

Liam taught guitar lessons to one of my daughters for a couple of years, and I personally played with him for several years in our church's praise team. He's both a gifted teacher and a talented musician, and his passion is clear for both. What's perhaps most impressive is the ease and grace he displays when either teaching or playing; he makes it all look and feel easy. Equally impressive is the breadth of his musical knowledge and styles. He's equally versed with all types of music, from classical to jazz to some of the more contemporary artists like Mandisa.

Liam was one of my many guitar instructors. But it was always apparent to me that Liam stands out. Liam and I did lessons for over a year in New Hampshire when I was about 14. His knowledge and understanding of music never ceased to blow my mind. When I was a young guitarist, Liam's patience gave me a great environment to learn and grow. Later, we connected for a few more lessons before I went to college at age 17, and Liam really helped me when I was at a different stage in my ability. His versatility is amazing. Usually, versatility comes at the price of depth, but that is not so, with Liam. He cares about music, and he cares about teaching, and has the talent and knowledge to pass that on. Outstanding teacher.

Rosely P. Clermont, FL

I believe that teaching students "the language of music" (also known as Theory) will provide students with a holistic understanding and ability to interpret the composer's wishes for their musical composition.
