- Will knows his topic extremely well.
- He is extremely patient, and has excellent communications skills.
- He has a linear and calculated approach to his teaching technique, small easy steps that are easy to follow and give the student a sense of accomplishment in every lesson, but lead directly to objective of learning to play guitar.
- Excellent Guitar Teacher, by far the best I have ever had.
- The part I like most about Will is not only is he teaching me guitar and I am actually learning... but he has taken the time to bring my personal preferences and songs i actually like and choose to learn into our lesson. Not only am I learning to play guitar, but I am actually learning to play songs I personally chose to learn. My Favorite songs! Mitch Ragan gives Will a 110% Quality Rating.

Amazing! Ive learned so much after just 3 lessons! I look forward to my lessons each week. I am an actress and I am always looking to learn a new skill to add to my repertoire/resume so I decided to try the guitar! I wish I had started sooner. It has been a very rewarding experience for me. My lessons with Will were so much fun (never boring or frustrating) and I felt that I came a long way in just a few months. Practicing at home was never a chore because everything was interesting. He asked me what songs I was interested in and also provided some that I was unfamiliar with. I am now moving out of state and Will gave me plenty of songs/techniques so that I can continue my guitar journey.
