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!
