I didn’t realize how little I knew. I’ve only completed one lesson, but what an experience! Aaron is a great teacher! Understands what you’re looking to get out of the instrument and applies his extensive knowledge to whatever you’re looking for. He is very professional, does not judge, and is extremely easy to work with. The repertoire based approach is probably the best idea I’ve ever heard of. If you play country, why would you care about rock? Teaching what you’re comfortable or interested in playing makes this much easier as a student. I am very much looking forward to working with Aaron more!Jun 27, 2018VerifiedAaron D.'s reply
Glad to hear it’s working for you Kenny - it’s really fun working with already-accomplished players like yourself and it’ll be eye-opening for sure as we continue opening new doors. Big cheers for the many thoughts here. We’ll keep working through this stuff and tracking your progress. ~Aaron
Aaron has a completely unique teaching style that encourages you to play the music you want. I came to Aaron as a novice, knowing very little, and in a few lessons I was starting to play in ways I hadn’t before. Aaron does a great job of making beginning guitar fun and something you want to continue to do.Apr 21, 2018VerifiedAaron D.'s reply
Thanks for the awesome words Scott! Big cheers, Aaron
Aaron is very qualified and professional. He also very patient. He is focused on what I want to learn but conducted a very thorough assessment of where I am at and made sold recommendations for improvement. His approach is well balanced and I enjoy practicing the assignments he has given me. I look forward to studying with him for some time.Jan 17, 2018VerifiedAaron D.'s reply
Hey Bob this is great to hear. It only gets better as you realize more and more what you’re capable of. It’s my pleasure to work with you. Cheers, Aaron
He has an innovative way of teaching. Often has an interesting perspective on a problem or question causing you to look at things from a different view point which often leads to either finding a solution to a problem or the clearing up of a misunderstanding you may have had about music/theory. In short instead of simply spelling out answers he has the patience and ability to guide you through a thought process that allows you to find answers on your own.Nov 23, 2017VerifiedAaron D.'s reply
This is a very reflective review and such a great description of a successful mentorship. When I see this kind of thought go in to both review-writing and music practice I am reminded of your commitment to learning. I’m glad we connected and look forward to seeing you become the musician you want to be. Cheers! Aaron

- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?$50 per lesson, hour lessons. No cancelation charges or materials fee.
- What is your typical process for working with a new customer?Students arrive and talk with me about their guitar ambitions, why they want lessons and what they feel like they can't do or would like to do better. I give each student a materials folder and we start figuring out what's important and how to practice better to get better. We'll start playing and I demonstrate guitar concepts through everyday songs and whatever the student likes while taking notes on google docs for the student to refer to later. Specifically I keep a running list of repertoire, tempo records, any specific problem areas technique-wise, and instructions on what and how to practice. I stress the difference between practice and play and encourage both to happen in equal amounts. Kids play pitch-matching and fretboard drawing games along the way. All students become involved in reading and writing TAB and chord charts.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?1. Reflections on being self taught remind me how fun and exciting it to play music. 2. Reflections on my 1st guitar lesson in junior year of college remind me of the value that playing intelligently and has in finding one’s musical voice.
