Dustin is a fabulous instructor. He is so very talented and yet that doesn't stop him from being super patient and understanding. He has a way of showing students at their level what areas need improvement and how best to get there. His positive attitude and kindness makes him a great instructor. Thanks Dustin.

Dustin's bass lessons were both extremely helpful and informative in improving my skill. He is incredibly knowledgeable and is great at conveying that knowledge to his students. I hope to continue to take lessons with him for many years and would I highly recommend him to any interested students.
