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.

Guitar · In studio
I am in my 60's and all my life I've wanted to play guitar. Lou has made that dream come true for me. It's been only a year of taking lessons with Lou and I am already playing many of my favorite songs. I remember at the beginning when I doubted if I would ever really play a song and Lou kept telling me "you will be playing sooner that you think". Then it all started coming together and I now play with my friends and I can't express how thankful I am for Lou's teaching style which has allowed me to learn chords, rhythm patterns, songs and even finger picking. It don't get any better than this.

My son and I have been taking guitar lessons from Lou for two years now and at the beginning we didn't know anything about playing guitar. Now, we know over two dozen of our favorite songs, chords, rhythm patterns and he's presently teaching us about finger picking. He has not only made my son and I learn how to play guitar but has given me another opportunity to enjoy doing something with my son and all of this adds up to an outstanding teaching job by Lou.

I started taking guitar lessons at the age of 13 from Lou. When I first began my lessons I never imagined I'd be able to play like I can now. Now I am 16 and completed three years of lessons and I enjoyed all 3 years. Each year I found I progressed more and more and that's all thanks to Lou's teaching style. He is an amazing instructor. My favorite artist is Taylor Swift. He taught me how to play so many of her songs I lost count. I feel I am ready to advance in music theory and playing if I want to continue my guitar studies in college. I highly recommend him.
