Shikha K. says, "John is an exceptional coach and mentor. He started teaching my eight year old son few months ago and we highly recommend him! My son connected with him immediately and wanted him to be his coach. John is able to inspire keen interest in him to take his practice to a new level. While being very focused and diligent during practice, John also takes time to be goofy with kids and talk about other things that are important to them which makes him immensely likable. John also takes time to discuss my son’s progress with me that helps me understand his strengths and areas to work on. We are so thankful to have him!" Read more

Matt is a phenomenal guitar teacher! He has the formal education and the passion necessary to be a truly effective instructor. After every lesson, he e-mails me a summary of what I need to work on. He makes learning guitar fun but also holds me accountable. And he teaches all ages. Lessons with Matt are the highlight of my week!
