Tyler has been by far the best music teacher I have ever had! he is such a talented, down to earth, genuinley nice guy. He helped Me understand playing guitar (and music in general) so much more than I could have imagined. He always answered all of my beginner questions without making me feel stupid.i am so much more confident and comfortable playing and writing my own music. Tyler gave me the tools I needed to make music. I wish all teachers were like Tyler, I can't recommend him enough for anything music related. You won't be dissapointed!
