    Easy to understand tutorials with step by step instructions. Denny does not rush through the lessons. Even though you are not face to face with him he gives you the chance to duplicate what he is teaching. Also, his pleasant personality and calm demeanor make you feel comfortable and at ease for learning. I would recommend this course for anyone!

    Denny is extremely patient, and has an ability to simplify musical terminology and concepts. I even started my daughter on lessons with him and she enjoys them ...

    My son has been taking guitar lessons with Denny Carleton for five years. Denny is very patient and easy to work with. He searches out music that my son enjoys and challenges him to learn new skills. Best of all, my son has fun playing with Denny! I highly recommend Denny as a guitar instructor.

    I’ve been studying with Denny for over 15 years. By far the best teacher out of many I’ve studied with. Denny works with you to understand what you want to get out of playing and what your strengths and limitations are. His experience as a working musician is invaluable as he can explain lessons and theory to how it applies to actually playing music, not just some complex ideas that you will never remember . It is so much more fun and not frustrating to play learning from him. I’ve become a very competent player even with the physical limitations that I have with one of my hands. No other teacher was really able to help me over come that.

What is your typical process for working with a new student?

Get to know them then find songs they like and give them lessons acquiring the basic skills for guitar playing, which include chords,Tabs, notation,and some theory to understand how it fits together . Music should be fun, and a relaxed atmosphere produces the best results.

What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?

Played in Bands and solo acoustic since the 1960's and taught professionally since the 1980's. 
I have taught at the Fibe Arts Association In Willoughby since the 1980s , Matre Dei Acadamy Grade School .
