I Highly reccomend Mr. Mel Williams for all Guitar Instruction and Performances. a.) I have taken Guitar Lessons from Mel. Learning so many basics, improved Chord Progressions. Scales, Leads, Rythmn, He always is full of energy in teaching and makes the student feel good about our progress. b.) I have seen Mel perform and joined him at many events. He is always prepared and practiced with the music. Some examples of Events or "Gigs" hes' done are Rock Band, College Band, Church Music Leader, Festivals (ex: Italian Fest), Coffee House musician, Workshops, Weddings, & many more. Styles he plays are - Classical, Christian Rock, Blues, Bluegrass, Country,Folk, Latin, Irish, Italian, Rock, Pop, Holiday. c.) He is a enthusiastic , Energetic Person & Musician.

Melvin Williams is an amazing instructor. He is a fantastic musician and his musical knowledge is vast. From classical, Spanish(European) , country to rock. I would recommend Mr. Williams even to the most advanced musicians.

Melvin is fantastic! Not only is he truly gifted at guitar and music but is also a great teacher. He knows how to adapt specific needs and was able to present the theory to me in a way that actually made it clear!
