"Really great teacher of guitar, theory, technique, groove, phrasing, tone, everything.  Will take you to the next level.  Incredibly professional and friendly.  Vast knowledge of music, blues, jazz, rock, pop." - Jon H


"Extraordinary patience.  Offers me incredible insights on theory, patterns, technique, phrasing, why some notes sound amazing in various contexts.  Identifies what I could do and work on to get to the next levels and guides me there." - Garry G


"Recommends what I ought to be doing next in my guitar journey but also tailors the lessons to what I want to focus on.  My lessons have been split between the two." - Charles K



"It strikes me as absurd to have access to a master guitarist and one who will tell you the how and why of it all, but here it is. Like having access to and taking lessons from master guitarists like Jeff Beck and
SRV if they were to patiently and clearly give you insights into how they are doing what they do." - John C


 

"Can meet you at a level of no theory all the way to advanced jazz theory.  I play piano and know a good amount of theory and find it extraordinarily helpful to learn the way he views the fretboard and choice of notes and chords.  Helped me with my technique (I couldn't even use a pick before other than to strum barre chords in a cacophonous manner, now I can arpeggiate dom 7, major and minor scales with speed after only 3 months)." - Jean-Pascal F
