Sergei clearly has a deep understanding of the guitar and the theory behind it. I've been taking lessons with him for a few months now and I am continually learning something new. He is a patient teacher and is encouraging when I'm not grasping a concept. He's helped expose some bad habits and helps me create better ones. I look forward to continuing working with Sergei and learning from this great teacher!
Really great experience. He was really knowledgeable on different styles such as jazz, funk, rock, blues, etc. He is also patient really takes his time explaining everything so you can get a better understanding.
Great teacher. He gets straight to the lessons and very patient and helpful. Looking forward to future lessons.
