  • Dominic F.

    Working with Wayne was a pleasure and we would certainly do it again. Wayne was extremely professional and accommodating to our needs. He offered recommendations to assist us in our planning and always responded promptly to our emails. When it was time for him to perform, Wayne's experience and talent were evident. The guests at our wedding ceremony loved the atmosphere he provided. Thank you for all of your help!

    I don't remember if we requested Wayne to play a particular tune. He was just right for the dinner. Thanks, Chris

plus a travel charge if I have to travel to the student.

What advice would you give a student looking to hire a teacher in your area of expertise?

Let the teacher assist in instrument selection. Don't buy a guitar and then look for a teacher. Find the teacher first, then the guitar. 

What questions should students think through before talking to teachers about their needs?

What are the students goals? What does the student want to accomplish over time?
