· Violin · In studio I'm coming back to playing after 6 years of not thinking about music at all. Dustin gave me some great jumping off points for playing, reading music, and practice technique.

· Guitar · In studio Dustin is very knowledgeable about the guitar and music in general. He explains things in a way that's easy to understand and tailors lessons around what the student wants to learn.
