About Wes C.

Hey guys! My name is Wes and over the last 6-7 years I've absolutely fallen in love with music. It's amazing to me to see that music affects every single human, no matter what specific genre they might prefer. And to be able to pick up and instrument and join in on it is such an incredible experience. I started by showing a few of my friends how to play some guitar back in 2013 and I've been teaching guitar and piano lessons ever since. I love to help people along and see them progress and overall ENJOY it! Hope I can be a good fit for you!

Wes travelled to my home at an affordable rate for us and taught our son Paul lessons. To be honest, at first I was hesitant because my son was only 7 years old so I wasn't sure if I should just wait until he's older, but I'm glad we chose to start him early. Now he is much further along than I would have expected! Thanks Wes!

I had lessons when I was younger but I lost interest because it just seemed a little too difficult for me. Wes started with the basics for me and helped me form that into being able to play songs that I loved so that "practice" was enjoyable! Highly recommended!
