Katherine H. says, "Nate started teaching my son, 9 (he was 8 when he started) electric guitar about two months ago. He is very professional, he communicates before each lesson that he will be headed our direction and he is punctual. Our son really enjoys working with him and he will gladly answer all of my son's questions. Nate is extremely patient and will check in with him if he can tell that my son feels overwhelmed. I would very much recommend him to anyone looking for guitar lessons!" Read more

Nate has been a great guitar teacher for our son. He's very intentional and comes with a plan, but also takes our son's musical taste and desires in mind. We also love that Nate comes to us for lessons! Nate also went the extra mile in helping us choose a starter guitar. He met us at music stores and gave us great guidance. We highly recommend Nate!
