I have had 3 lessons with Kevin - he is incredibly good at what he does. Each lesson is substantial creating many things to work on until the next. He is very clear about what to practice, which I love, and will transcribe skill-appropriate versions of songs you want to learn. He is also specific about technique and has already me so much in very little time. I thought I might try a few teachers as I am committed to learning the guitar and want the best instructor...but I'm sold on this one, no need to look elsewhere. Also, he's super friendly!

This is my first experience with Take Lessons and I am loving it!
I signed up for 10 lessons.
Kevin is amazing. He is very patient and explains everything in Laymen's Terms (which I need). He doesn't just tell you how to do things, he tells you why and is very knowledgeable. I highly recommend Take Lessons for learning and Kevin for Guitar!

Kevin is very professional and KNOWS what he's doing! He is strong in theory, teaching AND performance. My son was PLAYING the banjo after his first lesson!! He does already play the guitar, but I was very impressed with the quick results!! He is personable and seems to work very well with teens. - Jed's mom

Kevin has taken my 14yo son from an absolute beginner to a good guitar player. He has been patient and professional all times and my son truly likes him, as do I. I have referred him to several friends now and will continue to do so.

Kevin's been working with my 12-year-old son for about 6 months now. My son has learned a lot of new songs and proper playing techniques. Kevin is very professional, reliable, and gets along well with my son. I recommend him!

Kevin is very patient, helpful and fun! At 23, I thought I was too old to start learning an instrument and Kevin made me feel comfortable right away. He constantly updated the lesson plan and adjusted it to my skill level.

My friends and family gave me a gift certificate to Take Lessons for a banjo I had bought several years earlier with no musical know how. I tired to teach myself and that did not go well. A bit apprehensive at taking lessons at my age (not a spring chicken) but Kevin put me at ease immediately. He has great patience and communication skills. He made sense out of the lessons and I actually can play a couple of songs (may be a bit slow) after just 4 lessons. I know that what Kevin taught me will carry forward as I continue to hone my ability to play the banjo. As time affords me I may be back for more lessons from Kevin. Thanks Kevin for a great experience.

Great with kids
My young daughter has taken a few lessons with Kevin. He is patient with her and assigns music she enjoys. I like that he gives her a couple of things to focus in practice so she has variety. Although the room where the class takes place is a bit small, I also like that I can sit in on the class. It helps me know how I can help her during the week. Overall, I can see the difference in her playing in the few lessons we have had.
I love having Kevin as a guitar instructor. I'm not coordinated at all and I have problems telling my hands to each do different things, but Kevin is always patient and will go through things several times if need be. He is always adding on new songs to keep things from getting boring and trying new techniques to build proficiency. I definitely recommend him to anyone!
