After very poor experiences at School Of Rock and Bach To Rock, which emphasized the depletion of my wallet as opposed to actually teaching my son guitar, I went online to search for a Guitar Teacher in my area. Several instructors came up on my radar. but something about James' profile intrigued me and I gave him a call. Instantly, I knew he was the right choice. From his buoyant and effervescent personality, to his savvy curriculum that combines both theory and learning to play songs that appeals to the student's musical interests, James possesses a unique quality that other instructors in the industry should emulate. Every week, my son really looks forward to having his lesson with James, and so do I, since he brings a positive energy into the house that's infectious. My son has progressed where not only can he read music and charts, but also has an arsenal of songs that he can play. In fact, every song my son has requested, no matter how complex, James has been able to teach him efficiently and effectively. Without reservation, I can easily recommend James as a reliable, fun and great guitar instructor.

I took lessons with James for about 18 months. Simply put, James is awesome. He is an awesome guitar player, and a fantastic teacher. I started out a total novice at the time of our first lesson. I could barely switch chords in the beginning. When I look back on what he tought me, I totally appreciate the importance of an actual teacher vs self teaching through videos and articles etc. A teacher is totally necessary and James' lessons covered all styles of music, music theory, improvising, and all done on both acoustic and electric guitars. He made learning the guitar easy and fun, which is always what he emphasized - learning should be fun and enjoyable. At the end of the day it is up to the guitar student to practice practice and practice some more - and with that discipline combined with James' instruction and coaching, you will be set up for success.

Cameron is an excellent teacher for me. I am 11 years old and have been playing for almost a year with him. He is patient and makes me stretch to be a better guitarist. He takes time to find songs at my level of learning and accommodates my tastes in music. I would recommend him for anyone who is interested in playing guitar.
Kim K.
I enjoyed my first lesson with Cameron. He explained things clearly so I could understand. Can't wait for my next lesson.
Pat A.
A solid teacher with a lot of experience

Cameron is great at tailoring the lessons to my musical taste without compromising the theory, basics and fundamentals.
I have been taking lessons for one year and will not go elsewhere anytime soon. His vast musical knowledge helps merge the theory with concrete examples. No question remains unanswered.

He was amazing! My son could not be happier. Super great guy and wonderful teacher.
Alexander
Andy was my guitar instructor for more than year. He is a master in theory and practice and is able to bring you to the highest levels. The breath of learning opportunities he offers in terms of techniques, styles, rhythms, songs etc is huge and allows for training and development in the desired areas at every possible level. And he can back up the lessons by the underlying music theory as needed. In practice, Andy quickly spots where issues lie and provides useful hints to overcome technical problems. In addition he offers useful material which helps when practicing at home.

Nick
Adam is incredibly knowledgeable, professional, and most importantly a great teacher! He's patient and great at breaking down trickier ideas to be understood by someone with minimal theory knowledge like myself. And he's a great player to boot! I would gladly recommend Adam as an instructor to anyone looking for general music theory knowledge on the guitar all they way to more advanced level jazz techniques.

Thanks Adam!
Andy
Adam is a fantastic guitar teacher. He paced his lessons so that the amount of information I had to cover was reasonable for my busy schedule, and every week I came away feeling more and more confident in my playing!
Yami
Adam taught both my daughters. He is very knowledgeable and has a natural gift for teaching. The girls were engaged in the class and considerably improved in technique. He really is the best instructor ever!
