My kids (6 & 10) enjoy their guitar lessons with Austin. He plans based on their music/songs interests. Austin's schedule is also flexible.

Wonderful instructor. He spends time with my daughter and explains everything to her in a very understanding way. He had a lot of patience and great skills! I highly recommend him to anyone.

My son absolutely loves Austin! He's very patient and allows him to play the type of music he's interested in. He started on acoustic at age 7 and at 8 is playing the electric guitar and loves it even more!

I have been very impressed with Austin. From my son's first day of lessons, Austin has been a patient and caring instructor. He took the time to find out my son's musical interests and tailored his lessons to fit those, which has made all the difference in my opinion. My son likes to practice and looks forward to each and every lesson.

Austin has been absolutely fantastic with both of my boys. He shows patience, kindness, and care in all his interactions & teachings with them. Great sense of humor and always with a positive attitude. My boys look forward to seeing him and I hear his name in our home numerous times per week. We are all big fans :)

Austin is great! He takes the time to learn his individual students and teach them in a way that they can comprehend the information and succeed. He's teaching me practical guitar skills as well as theory. Incredibly patient and whoa his knowledge of the guitar is incredible! His interaction with my 5 year old daughter is awesome...he listens and even though she is not his student, he gives her the opportunity to learn something while she's in the lesson with me. It's been a great experience so far!

Austin Kessler is a great instructor. My son is 5 and is learning guitar. Although I wasn’t sure if he was at a good age to start Austin works with him very well. Zakai is comfortable with him and retains lots of information. He would rather practice with him than at home. He was shy at first but Austin allows him to be a child and ramble for a bit and then always reels him back into practicing and learning. He’s very patient and kind with my son. Constantly provides updates on progress after every lesson and makes himself available throughout the week via phone if needed. If we are unable to make it to practice he is accommodating as best as possible. I don’t live near the center so sometimes situations arise and he is quite understanding. I would definitely recommend Austin as a teach to anyone.

Learning music is an experience. It's an experience that can either be bad or good depending on the instructor you have. Thankfully, I was receiving help from Austin, and it was the opposite of a bad experience. Austin knows music in a way that was beyond my basic understanding, but explained to me as if it was something I knew all along. Whenever my hands would cramp up on the keys, or my fingers couldn't stretch properly to the next fret, he understood it was natural, so I wasn't worried. I mean, we're all learning.

In terms of paying for lessons and going through this process, Austin is the one to do it for.

A great teacher with a lot of patience for newer players, we meet once a week and each week we would learn a new exercise that would also relate to the new song we would be learning. He was always ready to answer any question no matter how hard it was. I would recommend him to anyone that's looking to learn any instrument.

Very enjoyable experience. Made me feel comfortable with playing guitar and helped me understand the basics of it. The teaching is easily understandable and he took his time to make sure I understood what he was teaching.
