I have learned quite a bit in the short time we have been meeting. He is patient as well as instructive. But more than anything, I’m having a great deal of fun with my fledgling skill sets. He’s a fabulous instructor!!!

Good instruction at an affordable rate which made it a really great value. Victor was helpful reinforcing mechanics, suggesting practice exercises and introducing good songs to learn. Additionally, he seems to have a deep knowledge of bluegrass history and is flexible in his instruction which is important given the limitations of online learning.

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

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.
