I've always been, in music, one way or another, I suppose because music has always been, in me. Thanks again, for your time and interest, if you went the extra mile read this far. I hope you gained a little more insight, about me.
It's not work if you love what you're doing. I love sharing the gift of music.
Don's lesson plans are well-structured and concise. He builds coursework off of you, the student, and takes care to ensure you know what you need to know as a musician, not just a guitarist. He is truly a teacher at heart, and makes building his students into better musicians and people his top priority.
Dawn is great at taking info and breaking it down into small segments which are easy to understand Andre chain. He has a passion for music that is contagious and inspires me to focus. And last but far from least, Don is a personable man who instructs in a relaxed environment that promotes learning.
