    He is very calm and patient with our son and changes his teaching techniques based on our boy’s ability. We have been his student for more than two years and strongly recommend him.

    It was one of my better good fortunes that I came to know Mr. Eric Klodt, and that he accepted me as one of his students. Although I’d had a guitar in the house for many years, work and family - and a certain lack of focus on my part - had prevented me exploring any talent that I may have in this sphere. Then, in middle age and just before retiring, I determined nevertheless to take it up. I could not be happier with that decision, and my choice of teacher. I find Mr. Klodt very approachable, affable, and extremely capable. He seems to be fluent in all styles and types of guitar ; which is a boon for me, because I was not very focused on the kind of playing in which I wanted to engage. Mr. Klodt is also a great wit with guitar technology and its various accessories. I found him extremely open to adjusting the pace and style of my lessons, so as to suit my abilities and tastes. Quite plainly, for the sheer fun of learning such a beautiful instrument, no matter how far one wishes to take it, I recommend Mr. Klodt to anyone - at any level - willing to explore the possibilities of this musical endeavor.

    I met Eric Klodt 15 years ago when I brought my 9-year-old daughter to him to learn how to play the guitar. Eric gave me the option to sit in and observe anytime. I attended her first couple lessons and decided to take lessons with Eric myself. I am still taking lessons with Eric 15 years later. My daughter took lessons for a number of years also. I have recommended others to take lessons with Eric and the feedback has always been positive. Eric is extremely knowledgeable, an excellent teacher and most importantly he is someone you can trust.

    I've been going to Mr. Eric for a long time, and he has helped me in mastering how to play the guitar. He is very patient and will take his time teaching something if you don't understand. Don't hesitate to ask him any questions; he loves them. You can choose any song you want to learn later on, and he will help you learn the tabs. If a part is difficult, he will find an alternative approach which is easier. I struggled playing the guitar initially, but Mr. Eric helped me gain confidence in the instrument. He even helped me get the courage to sign up for music camps. I have attended 6 Rock n Roll camps and had a great time. I would definitely recommend Mr. Eric and to anyone interested in learning the guitar. Mr. Eric is one of the most skilled players I have ever met, and I am glad that I am his student.
