· · I've only had two lessons but so far Bryan has been super! His lessons are packed with good clear instruction. I'm slightly more than a beginner and he was able to jump in with lessons that challenge me yet aren't overwhelming! So far so good. :)
· · Great Teacher!!
Bryan has been a wonderful instructor and very patient. I hope to learn much from him in our future lessons.
· · very positve highly recommend
very knowledgeable and has extensive technical training but doesnt force any style ---allows a guitar player to develop their own style and sense of creativity--great instructor!
