Great first day!
Jim
I recently started taking lessons with Kenny to try to learn some basic lead guitar in a one on one setting. I've been very impressed with his preparation, taking the time to tailor the lesson to my level of play and the music I am interested in playing. He also is very encouraging and is interested in my learning and progress, even going beyond the one hour lesson time to ensure that I have the tools necessary to continue to work at home.

I can teach acoustic or electric guitar, this is up to the student. I'm also prepared to teach any particular style that's preferred on either instrument.

About Garrett

I've been playing guitar for about 15 years now and I've played in just about every type of band. After playing in a metal band for about 5 years I switched over to a classic rock group for a couple years. In both of those groups I was lead guitar/lead vocals. Now for the last few years I've bee

Great lesson, loads to learn!!!
Brad
I tried learning guitar a number of years ago. Garrett was great getting me started back into guitar. He quickly got me going with some simple chords and techniques. He has a strong understanding of guitar and makes it easy to understand. + he can play anything!
Derrick
What can I say about Garrett. I have never met a better guitarist in my 20 years of playing. Taking lessons with him was one of the best decisions I ever made. I would pay him double. No matter the guitar style, Garrett seems to have played it for years and has real insight on any of the different styles from Blues, to Country, to Rock, to Classic Rock, to Metal. He helped me not just learn riffs or songs but scales and has bug in teaching me more advanced music theory as well. He truly is the perfect mix of good person and amazing guitarist. Don’t miss the chance to learn from one of the best no matter your skill level!

Casey does a phenomenal job of teaching our 12 year-old daughter keys. He's very patient and is able to teach her at her pace, while still challenging her to improve. Since beginning lessons with Casey, we've seen a tremendous improvement in her ability and look forward to what she can do next!
Ireland
I grew up taking piano lessons, but it wasn't until I started taking lessons with Casey that I really gained confidence in my ability to play in front of an audience. I learned songs that I really enjoyed and that I still play six years later. I also took guitar lessons from him for a while, and I loved that he encourages you to know your instrument, to do your exercises, but also to just play what you like. His passion for music is evident in everything that he does, and he's a compassionate, knowledgeable instructor. I'd recommend him to anyone.
Seth
Casey is very encouraging knowledgeable! He made lessons fun and something to look forward to. I no longer take lessons with Casey, but now I’m pressuring a music career!

I was apprehensive about guitar lessons in general, but Nathan has changed my mind as a tutor. I am well pleased with how keen he is to tailoring lessons to one's goals. He is clear and precise in his teaching, and is also fun. I highly recommend him to whoever is considering it. I have learned so much in a couple lessons and always leave looking forward excitedly to the next one. Good man.

"Headline: Jared is amazing teacher.
Jared has excellent knowledge of music foundations and music theory.
Knows styles and genres, knows not only how to play but create too... And how this style was born.
He helps to build habit to do things right - I'm talking about technique - or, in other words - how to use your hands!
Same time he's extremely patient.

I'd like to recommend Jared for everyone who want's to learn play guitar (don't look at your age), his teaching approach works great, because he is teaching you and adjust classes for you."
