Connor is so easy to work with, extremely knowledgable, and motivating! My son really enjoys the lessons and interacting with Connor. My son has been randomly picking up his guitar to try things from the lessons which a is a huge improvement from the last time we tried lessons. I attribute that to Connor's instructions and passion for what he does. He is also punctual and a good communicator. I highly recommend Connor as an instructor, especially for kids!

While I was in college, I worked as a lab monitor in the music building's computer lab. I assisted students with questions and concerns about music software and equipment that the school has available.
