Thank you Victor for my first music lesson on the mandolin. I am new to music, and sure that I will enjoy learning with you.

Victor has been very helpful. He found my daughter the right size of guitar for her to start with. So far she has been learning chords and learning to strum. She has been enjoying it and we are looking forward to next week

Helped me learn the basics of guitar and has helped me to learn songs that I like on my own. Very friendly and helpful.

I have been taking guitar and mandolin lessons from Victor for around two years. I had originally started on guitar and eventually became interested in learning mandolin. He has been nothing short of accommodating both in my schedule and musically. Highly Recommended.

I took lessons for beginning guitar with Victor. Victor is a great teacher! He is clearly very competent, with a relaxed vibe. He was happy to create personalized guitar tab for me, and was very patient, even though I was a first time guitarist.
