What I liked about working with Littman Guitar Studio was working with someone with so much knowledge and understanding of music especially blues and jazz. The dedication and the patience of working with someone with so many years of teaching experience is simply an immeasurable experience in my life.
Highly skilled and experienced teacher, ready to work with you on your terms to help you get to the next level of your guitar-playing, no matter where you are starting out from. Strong recommend!
Ed Littman has a talent when it comes to teaching Guitar Theory. Ed builds a fundamental course based on each students’ requirements; this technique helps to advance the student’s learning curve and muscle memory. His lesson methodology encourages students to want to pursue a learning path. Thank you Ed Littman, for helping me with my Guitar Scales, Chords and Theory.
A Mastering studio is a great environment for learning. Ed has a wealth of knowledge of not only his instrument but sound production and music theory. Ed is able to teach all styles and genres of guitar playing. He teaches through conversation and examples. Ed is very knowledgeable. I have greatly benefitted from his teaching.
My method is based on the student getting a feel for the Guitar and Bass (even with limited information), developing confidence and being able to learn on his/her own, making it possible for them to make the decision on what direction to take their music.
