    I like his energy, his organization and the depth of his knowledge.

    Forest is great at structuring lessons to your ability. Additionally, he is good at adjusting the lesson plans to what you need or want to do. I started with a base knowledge and ability a year ago and have been very pleased and surprised with my progress. I recommend him to anyone looking for the flexibility of virtual lessons.

    Forest has a targeted approach that emphasizes technical skills on the guitar while still keeping a focus on learning music and having fun. His lessons feel targeted to what I want to learn and he strikes a great balance between leading me (when I don't know where to go) and following my lead (when I do have a clear goal). Forest's demeanor during lessons is both professional and personal, and the sessions reflect it. If you're willing to put in the work, this instructor will absolutely accelerate your progress.


    Forest has been an awesome teacher! He has made lessons very well customized to my interests and skill level. Highly recommend!
