Acoustic Guitar · In home

Eric is an incredibly talented guitar player with a wide range of knowledge and experience that combine to make for a great guitar instructor. My 8 year old son has been his student for the past 2 years and has progressed quickly and has an understanding of guitar that others kids his age do not. I have and do recommend Eric.
