I've had four different guitar teachers, including Don but he is the best one I've had by far. He's taught me more chords, notes, riffs, songs, and scales at a much higher speed than any of my other teachers. Don also really just takes the time his students need to learn something and he's very open to new ideas and learning new songs. He also knows what his student's needs are.... If he feels as if a student of his would be better off playing an electric guitar rather than an acoustic, he'll do everything he can to make sure they get one. If he feels as if a student is struggling, he'll go over it again and again, first slowly and then faster. If I were a parent with a kid who wanted guitar lessons, I would send them to no other teacher.
