If your considering taking guitar lessons for the first time,
or looking to "spice up" your playing ability, Numan is the teacher for you.
He's patient,knowledgable and always go's the extra mile to help me during our lessons together. I've had previous teachers who charged more and are nowhere near as talented; my playing has inproved drastically since studying with him and friends have noticed..Highly Recommended!

Numan first of all is a great guitar player. He has studio experience, and has played professionally for years. He has taught me many great techniques in playing guitar. He has patience and is very clear and thorough when teaching and works at the students pace. In just a short while I was already learning some of my favorite songs, reading music, scales, music theory and writing my own tunes! I definitely recommend this teacher if you want to learn the guitar from top to bottom.

Numan is the real deal. I spent years putting off taking guitar lessons as I've never been the best student. A friend of mine recommend Numan and I thought I'd give him a try. His teaching style is very patient and thorough. He does not get frustrated and works with me at my pace. He's also the best guitar player I've ever known. In just a few months I'm playing at a level I never thought I'd be able to. I cannot recommend Numan enough.
