A Better Way to Learn
Kyle, Country Guitar (In-Person)
I can't even explain how great this made me feel. I suddenly felt like I could actually achieve this bucket list dream of mine.

I love teaching because I love passing on my knowledge to others who want to learn.

I was a science teacher at the high school and college level before I got sick and had to leave the classroom. Suffering from autoimmune issues for the past fifteen years, I set out to find healing on the yoga mat and through other lifestyle changes. My approach to teaching is a combination of clear, concise, easy-to-understand instruction from years of experience as a science teacher in a classroom, concern with safety and compassion and caring from dealing with a chronic illness most of my adult life. By the way, I love to smile. My joyful approach to teaching is quite infectious in a good way. I now use Gentle Somatic Yoga which is appropriate for anyone with chronic pain to help release muscle tension and create greater ease of movement. I can work with anyone -- whether you are chair-bound or a young person who needs to learn to relax and release stress.

I also like that he is helping me with ear training. I've had previous experience with reading music, but he is really expanding my horizons with listening to music and trying to figure it out by using basic principles. This is a way to learn that I hadn't experience before in guitar lessons in the past, and I think it's a great way to learn.
I'm looking forward to many more lessons to come. This has really helped me to enjoy playing the guitar again!
My teen daughter has been wanting to take guitar lessons for the last 3 years. Looking over Mr. Russo’s extensive qualifications, gave me pose in hiring him, after all she was so new she did not even know how to old a guitar, I figured he would be over kill. That plus the fact that he seems to tour a lot made me concerned that, once the pandemic receded he would be back to touring extensively, leaving us to find another teacher. I am glad I decided not to let my fear guide my decision because, he really is an excellent teacher. He put my teen who is people shy at rest, now you cannot tell her she is not the next Joni Mitchelle in the making. One of her favorite things to do after each of her lessons, is to FaceTime me(she is in boarding school) and enthusiastically show me what she is learning.

Have you ever wanted to learn this wonderful and very humoristic language and culture? Be it you're just travelling because someone told you that they're making the best cheese in the world (which is true!) or you're moving there because someone got you a job (lucky you!) or you just want to learn another language because you're curious. Let me warn you: It is not a modification of the German language, even though there's a few words that might look similar at first glance, but they're pronounced completely different! So, a small country with a huge culture! Ik hoop, tot ziens!
