Mr. Violin was very patient in helping me with problems I have had for quite some time in my technique and theory. He methodically went through and changed my approach on both fronts and my guitar playing (specifically soloing) has improved greatly. I will def return for more lessons.
I drive to my student’s houses. I’m flexible with times, days and make up lessons.
I ask how long the student has been playing and what are their musical goals. I custom create lesson plans for every student because everyone learns differently.
Student recitals are also available.
