Guitar · In studio

Dylan is by far the best instrumentalist and music instructor I know. If you want to learn how to play the guitar, he is the man for the job.

I had been hesitant to take lessons because of all the free resources online, but Dylan put that completely to rest after just one session. Dylan has an incredible musical repertoire and a vast knowledge of all things guitar and theory. So few guitarists really understand how to read music but, at my request, Dylan has been teaching me in an accessible, organic way. He's helped me develop good habits so that I don't have to back track, and all in all is an awesome guy. From video game music to rock to classical this guy knows everything. I feel like I progress as a guitarist after every session we have. He's absolutely the best.

Incredible teacher, very knowledgeable. I'm a college student and wanted to start a new hobby. I've always wanted to play guitar since high school. He was very helpful and will definitely come back for more lessons!
