Extremely helpful during lessons. Designs the lessons to use song in my areas of interest. Lesson critiques are always done in a positive manner. Right now mostly in the area of finger placement. This does make the music easier to play. Her husband Chris also teaches.

Courtney and Chris are amazing. They really make sure that you know what your doing by the time you leave your lesson, and they are both so much fun. 10 out of 10 would recommend to anyone at any level of experience.

Chris was my instructor. He was very encouraging and understanding. I am soooo new to this.

I learned a lot from Chris and really got the basic chords down. I had a lot of fun learning and he explained everything really well and was very helpful!

Had a really good time. 45 minutes went way too fast.

Had my first lesson with Courtney and she was very enthusiastic about teaching! She was patient, thorough, and well organized with her instructions and provided a good foundation to build upon. I'm looking forward to future lessons as she has motivated me to enjoy the therapeutic sounds of the guitar. I'll also likely take piano lessons following the guitar. I would highly recommend Courtney!
