· Banjo · Online I know nearly nothing about music, but just love to try. Lyle is patient, and able to be flexible if I have not been able to practice (as much as I should!)

· Bass Guitar · In studio Lyle provided a great first experience in my bass guitar lessons. He is very knowledgeable and created a custom lesson plan to what I am looking for.

· Guitar · In studio Lyle has been a great instructor so far. He has taught me how to think about and practice guitar better. He has a wealth of experience and knowledge that he shares in an easy-going way. I feel better prepared and confidant that I can reach my desired skill level, rather than it seeming like a fantasy. Highly recommended.

· Banjo · In home Lyle is awesome! Lessons are fun and helpful, he focuses on helping you meet your musical goals. I am an adult absolute novice, never played an instrument before, and I feel really good about my progress. If a year ago someone would have asked me "will you ever play an instrument?" I would have said absolutely no and that I didn't think I was even capable of learning an instrument, I considered myself to be very non-musical; but not anymore. 1 star off because we've had a lot of cancellations and reschedules but that's partially my fault as well since our lessons are on Friday nights and he warned me he often plays gigs or has to travel to gigs on that night.

· Guitar · Very Good Teacher

Very cool and has immense patience for my 6 year old son. The right guitar teacher for my son who has questions nonstop.
