Very personable, flexible and precise with his explanations.
Ian is so very patient, very relaxed & a very good instructor.
This dude is the best.
Ian was a great teacher. Patient, informative, knowledgeable, flexible and a good communicator. He's good for both practical application and music theory so I strongly recommend him.
Ian was a great teacher with great humor with an improvisatory flow based on whatever I wanted to learn. I would definitely recommend to anyone.
Ian is great, totally awesome. He made me feel so comfortable and was very encouraging, despite my abilities as a beginner. There is nobody else I would have rather learned from, thanks Ian!
Ian is incredible, I mean, absolutely incredible. He made me feel comfortable and good about myself, even as someone with almost no guitar ability whatsoever. I was impressed by his guitar playing, but even more so with his ability to teach, he really is passionate about it and it shows. He tailored everything in the lessons to fit me, and I have really improved.
Thanks Ian, I couldn't have done it without you!
