Juan is an exceptional teacher. His method of teaching keeps a student engage and pretty easy to pick up... Not yo M e nation, fun. I've seen continuous interest and effort out of my child after each class, would highly recommend.
Mike
Juan went through many fundamentals of classical guitar, how to place your hands over the strings for articulation and economy of movement. Very useful.
Dawn G.
Juan is wonderful and very knowledgeable in music. He is very patient and makes you feel comfortable. I leave a lesson feeling like I am accomplished and relaxed. It nice to see progress in such a little time. I go home with enthusiasm to learn more and want practice to do so.

I love to share the experience of making music with others. Each one of my lessons is tailored to the student's individual needs. After recognizing both strengths and weaknesses, I take care to develop lessons that are inspiring, fun, and engaging to my students. With experience in varying styles of guitar, having studied jazz, classical, and world music at New York University and the New School for Jazz and Contemporary Music, and having experience playing and touring internationally with a variety of contemporary groups, I share what I have learned to help the student grow.

Great first lesson!!
Joris
Wit's understanding and non-dogmatic teaching style made classes high-quality and stress-free. Remote instruction was deeply engaging, which I wasn't expecting as someone who is used to in-person music classes. I definitely learned more than I have in any other guitar class.

I especially appreciated that class felt like a discussion rather than a recital. Instead of following one method or theme, I was encouraged to completely shift our attention at any time if there was anything I was curious about.

Wit presents difficult ideas with enough context that I, having a limited understanding of theory, felt able to keep up and incorporate higher-level concepts into my writing/playing.

Can't recommend Wit's classes enough!
Bianca
Prawit is such an incredible teacher - he structures the lessons to your specific goals, makes sure you understand everything before you move on, and makes it fun!
I love the structure he provides, and also the fact that he makes sure to check in as you are progressing. 👏🏼 I highly recommend him as a teacher

I've been casually playing guitar for a few years and came to Keith to improve my technique and become an overall better player. He called me before my first lesson to make sure he understood my goals as a player, and tailors my lessons to match them.

Keith has been great in helping me significantly improve my playing in a short period of time, and makes me excited to continue learning!

He showed me an exercise to break that bad habit, it is also helping me to move from one chord to another smoothly and easily. I can already tell the difference in just a few days.
