My first lesson was very nice Liam is very patient and he remained at my pace (slow), to insure that I was comfortable until I was confident enough to continue.

The first lesson with my son who has no experience at all went very well. Liam had a patience with him that will definitely assist in teaching a very energetic young man.

I was trying to learn to play better on the bass guitar. Liam is an excellent teacher. He was patient to teach me what I wanted to learn. He was organized and gave clear instructions. He gave me examples of exercises to work on to play better.

Liam taught guitar lessons to one of my daughters for a couple of years, and I personally played with him for several years in our church's praise team. He's both a gifted teacher and a talented musician, and his passion is clear for both. What's perhaps most impressive is the ease and grace he displays when either teaching or playing; he makes it all look and feel easy. Equally impressive is the breadth of his musical knowledge and styles. He's equally versed with all types of music, from classical to jazz to some of the more contemporary artists like Mandisa.

Liam was one of my many guitar instructors. But it was always apparent to me that Liam stands out. Liam and I did lessons for over a year in New Hampshire when I was about 14. His knowledge and understanding of music never ceased to blow my mind. When I was a young guitarist, Liam's patience gave me a great environment to learn and grow. Later, we connected for a few more lessons before I went to college at age 17, and Liam really helped me when I was at a different stage in my ability. His versatility is amazing. Usually, versatility comes at the price of depth, but that is not so, with Liam. He cares about music, and he cares about teaching, and has the talent and knowledge to pass that on. Outstanding teacher.
