Ian D. says, "I first took lessons with Bob Wolfman back in 1994, after spotting a flyer near my school. I called him on a whim, seeking someone who could adeptly teach both technique and theory, especially in blues and jazz guitar. Bob was a revelation—his fingers and brain worked at lightning speed, and I always left each lesson feeling enriched with new knowledge. After graduating, I stopped taking lessons, but the pandemic prompted me to reconnect with Bob for online lessons. Decades later, I am thrilled to find that Bob's charm, personality, and talent for guitar instruction haven't changed a bit. For anyone aspiring to become an accomplished, well-rounded guitar player, I wholeheartedly recommend Bob. His expertise spans over the years and adapts with time, making him an excellent choice for both beginners and seasoned players. You definitely won't regret it!" Read more

Reposting my review due to some grammar errors! My experience with Bob Wolfman has been fantastic. I’ve gotten so much better at playing the guitar and I’ve learned more in the past 3 months with Bob than all my previous years before studying with him. As an almost intermediate player, I didn’t have a lot of music theory knowledge, and couldn’t improvise very well. Learning music theory with Bob was actually fun, and he explains things that initially seem super complicated in a way that’s easy to understand. Not only that, but now I’m applying the theory I've learned from Bob in actual music, and being able to implement things he taught me on the fly. This has given me a ton of confidence as a player. In addition to the music theory, my chord vocabulary and licks I can play on the fly have astronomically increased as well. I can’t recommend Wolfman’s School of Music enough! If you’re at all serious about learning to play guitar, work with Bob!

Mr. Organek was one of the most helpful teachers I’ve ever had, as another musician I know it can be frustrating teaching someone when their far behind, but he was always patient and invested in getting me where I needed to be. Aside from the teacher and student relationship, Steven has been the most valuable friendship I’ve ever made and likely will remain so.
