Brian was very patient with my son. He made sure he was aware of his instructions. He even guided him back to the correct path when he was unsure of the information. Great teacher!

Tremendously knowledgeable and able to teach complex things very simply. Everything he taught me was so much more profound and important to understanding music that I could have imagined. Highly recommend him as a mentor if one is at all interested in music.

Great instructor - patient and professional

Brian has been my daughters instructor for about 7 months now - she looks forward to her lessons and is making great progress. Brian is a patient instructor who keeps the material at the students level. His studio is clean and very professional.

Lesson Feedback

Hello, After a month or so into the lessons the class has proven to be quite informative. Brian is a thorough teacher and really working to improve my technique to become an all around better guitar player. Can't wait for the next lesson!
