As a performing guitarist, music director, arranger, and band leader, I can share my experience with guitar techniques that will help you to achieve the next level in your playing. We can focus on ways to use the guitar to learn songs, technical exercises, creating music with others, understanding the instrument, and learn how to play a variety styles of music ranging from rock to jazz to classical to bluegrass.

Wit's understanding and non-dogmatic teaching style made classes high-quality and stress-free. Remote instruction was deeply engaging, which I wasn't expecting as someone who is used to in-person music classes. I definitely learned more than I have in any other guitar class.

I especially appreciated that class felt like a discussion rather than a recital. Instead of following one method or theme, I was encouraged to completely shift our attention at any time if there was anything I was curious about.

Wit presents difficult ideas with enough context that I, having a limited understanding of theory, felt able to keep up and incorporate higher-level concepts into my writing/playing.

Can't recommend Wit's classes enough!

Prawit is such an incredible teacher - he structures the lessons to your specific goals, makes sure you understand everything before you move on, and makes it fun!
I love the structure he provides, and also the fact that he makes sure to check in as you are progressing. 👏🏼 I highly recommend him as a teacher

I have been Prawit's student for several years in both in-home lessons and online. He is an amazing teacher! Prawit really takes the time to understand what I want to learn, and shows me how to achieve those goals. He is extremely clear, patient, and supportive. He teaches me both acoustic and electric guitar in several different musical genres.

I have been taking lessons with Prawit for over a year, and I've learned more in that time than I had in my previous six years of playing without instruction.

For pretty much anything you want to learn Prawit will have 5 different excersises for it. I didn't really even know what I wanted to learn going into the lessons, but Prawit was able to take my vague idea and guide me to becoming a better musician and guitar player.

Beyond that he's a very kind and non-judgmental person. I would highly recommend taking lessons with him.
