  • Master your key genres like jazz, rock, pop, and funk

We love our instructor, Louis Racicot. He is so patient with my kiddo. I'm not sure if he had experience with instructing a child with autism...virtually, but he's doing wonderfully well! He is a professional. His instruction is simple. He breaks the music down in bite size pieces and allows my kiddo to succeed. He's the best!

When I first picked up a guitar, all I could do was bang on it and drool. Now, after Mark and his highly reputable teaching, I am probably now better than he is. Except I don't teach... so go to him.
