I felt really comfortable and not at all intimidated with my first lesson. Looking forward to the next lesson.
Gabriel
Taught at the basic level very well. If you know nothing about music or guitar Tommy's your guy. Goes through all the simple steps at an even pace making the entire experience relaxing. From there giving you the knowledge of your scales and blues scales, teaching you how to make mini solos on the spot really helps out with the musicality of it all. 10/5

"One lesson in and I'm glad I chose Richard for my instructor. He's very personable and hit a great balance of making sure I got the basics with a gentle introduction to some musical theory, and he got me started on some exercises so I can jump in and practice over the next week. I had felt a little overwhelmed with where to start learning to play before getting started with lessons, but am now very optimistic that Richard will keep me heading in the right direction."
