  • Matthew O'Donald

    Great lessons Dillon is truly willing to teach you any genre

  • David Pavlansky

    Simply put these lessons are superior to those provided by Music & Arts I feel that I made far more progress and I was in a far more intimate understanding environment

  • Dwayne Lafayette

    I found the lessons I was given to be incredibly useful but beyond that I believe I found a friend and Dillon Norback highly suggested services

  • Forrest Resse

    I was a bedroom guitar player without really any actual instruction on how to play it beyond on YouTube. Dillon really brought my understanding to a new level so that I can truly enjoy the instrument I own. thanks Dillon
