I've studied with Luke for a little over a year and my playing and understanding of jazz concepts has improved tremendously. I'm primarily a rock and blues player but Luke has been able to stretch my playing out side of my rock/blues box and introduce some very cool techniques and ideas to add real interest and flavor to my playing. It's been a pure pleasure!+ Read More
Great teacher! He makes it so easy to learn!
Luke is the best guitar instructor I've ever had. He caters to my learning style very well, which is to learn just the stuff that "works" in a real life setting. His insight has made my sound 10x better and has given me a great framework for improvement (Even my band mates have noticed a difference with my playing). He also has a keen sense of where my own guitar playing issues stem from and knows what needs to be done to address them. For example, he could tell that I was gripping the strings too hard with my fingers and it would make the sound harsh.
I highly recommend Luke if you are looking to improve your sound
Luke has been teaching our 13 year old son for 3 years. He knows how to engage him and support him. He even buys Girl Scout cookies from our daughter! Luke is a kind person and a great guitar teacher!
Luke is an amazing teacher...best out there. I highly recommend him!!!
At 40, I decided to try my hand at guitar, though I had never before played any instrument ever. A couple years later, I have a wonderful hobby that brings me hours of joy. Since my son took lessons too, we have something to do together.
And it's all thanks to Luke. He's patient, thorough, and his lessons make sense. My son and I think he's terrific.
