I have been taking electric guitar lessons with Ediwn for about two years. He is very patient and knows how to encourage and motivate you to get you to your goals. He has a solid knowledge of music and composition too. He explains everything in a very simple and logical way. Now, I am learning how to record my music and make my songs and write them down. He will make you a better musician. I would highly recommend him.
