Phenomenal teacher! Rob simplifies advance techniques and organizes your lesson based on your personal goals. My lessons have been very informative but still always fun! I’ve improved significantly since our lessons began and have received guidance on how to make the most of my practice time on my own as well.

During this quarantine, having my lessons virtually is such a light during these challenging times, and they’re just as enjoyable as in person. Rob really is easygoing and has a great sense of humor!

Excellent teacher! Highly recommend! Feel like I’m going to learn so much and improve greatly!

I started playing acoustic guitar when I was seven years old. I have been playing and teaching mostly bluegrass, old time, Irish, blues, and swing jazz styles for many years. I have taught both privately and have also done various workshops at festivals. I have taught guitar multiple years for instance at the Gettysburg Bluegrass Festival in PA.
My students learn to have fun with music. Students can work on rhythms, melodies, improvisation, song writing, getting into and/or hanging on in a jam session, etc.

"Trevor is an amazing teacher. He is one of the best teachers I have come across for music, and I've had several. He has a near encyclopedic knowledge on almost all things music from composition to theory with a genuine interest in the material as well as teaching it. He is extremely patient, friendly, and kind of a nerd on several fronts, in the best, most awesome way possible I mean. If you want a truly comprehensive understanding of music from someone who knows what he is talking about and is fun to learn from, I'd say go with Trevor."

"As a 40 year old just deciding to play guitar I was quite intimidated to get started. From the first lesson Marc made me feel very comfortable. He does a fantastic job of customizing the lesson to your interests as well as targeting area's for improvement to help you reach the goals you've set.

He is patient and encouraging and is very effective at helping you to understand the learning timeline to keep you interested and motivated.

I would highly recommend Marc to anyone beginner or advanced, he does a phenomenal job."

"Excellent, dedicated teacher

I started taking lessons with David almost a year ago, coming in with a few years of piano lessons in my distant past and a year or so of tinkering around with a guitar on my own (read: wasting my time). In the year that I've been with David my guitar playing has blossomed faster than I would have thought possible - my technique is developing, I am playing challenging and rewarding music, and I am beginning to get a handle on basic music theory concepts.
This is all because of David's rigorous teaching technique: David is not satisfied with teaching basic chord shapes, which are easy to learn but can stunt musical development; instead, David insists on developing knowledge of chord voiceings and the ability to see the notes that you are playing as you play them. Though it is challenging, the payoff is the ability to sight read almost any song and improvise. David is happy to work on whatever song you would like to develop, but he also insists on practicing challenging music, mostly jazz and boss nova, that will develop your chord vocabulary and technique. I should also mention that David is a great guy and a pleasure to work with. If you're looking to work hard and learn a lot, this is the teacher for you."
