I’ve been teaching, performing and enjoying the guitar/singing for 40+ years. One of my primary goals is to provide a fun and content-rich environment to learn music. What makes me stand out from the rest is, my students aren’t just another number to me. From planning to the actual lesson and post video recaps, I want to ensure my students are receiving a quality experience.

    My kid really likes the teacher, so that seals the deal. Haha. He also has a lot of guitars, so we could check for the right size for my son. I loved his detailed and fun teaching methods and the systematic way they present lessons. Im so excited to see him playing soon!

    Alf is a great teacher and a nice guy. He has a very professional teaching setup with videos and customized lessons. Hes helped me get back my excitement for playing guitar and Ive already learned more music theory than I expected to learn. Very happy with these lessons!

    Makes the lessons feel personal to you which helps an incredible amount. The video review after the lessons are also amazing for learning being able to go back and review over things you learned and may have forgotten or havent picked up all the way yet.
