My 10-year old son has been taking lessons with Eric for a year now, and he has been GREAT. He has been patient, and done a wonderful job of letting my son learn at his own pace. My son has never felt pressured, and Eric has fostered his love for playing guitar, and giving him a solid foundation. We are really grateful to have found Eric.

I couldn't be happier. Eric is a great instructor. He's patient, extremely knowledgeable, and (the most important part) is very good at teaching. I'm an advanced player who needs help getting past a plateau, and I am 100% confident that Eric can get me to where I want to be as a guitarist.

Roberta was patient and was obviously an experienced teacher. I teach and I understand what it takes to put a lesson together so that the student gets the most out of it, while pushing the student to do better, but not too much to discourage them from moving forward. She hits that sweet spot! I would recommend her to anyone who was serious about learning.

My son has been taking lessons with Jonah for almost a year, and really loves working with him. I recently decided to join in with lessons of my own to try to progress out of the guitar rut I was stuck in. Jonah is pleasure to work with. Whether you're a beginner or beyond, Jonah is a patient, capable, and engaging teacher. We recommend him highly.
