Guitar Lessons

Darren is an amazing teacher, adapting to all of my questions I have. I've never been traditionally taught guitar, so I always have tons of questions that range in difficulty. He's been able to answer all of them and then direct my interests into learning something new. Lessons never feel lethargic or boring; 30 minutes pass before I know it! Highly recommend lessons with Darren.

I really liked Darren. He was the only "pro" who drove to my house to teach me and what a surprise he was. He was prepared,polite, and taught me quite alot in the hour we had together. I can't wait for another lesson and would highly recommend him.

I've had a great experience with Darren so far. He has a universal knowledge of music theory that spreads across a vast number of genres. That being said, it is more than apparent that he has a lot of passion for guitar. He’s able to learn songs by ear and will proceed to teach you said songs. His teaching methods are above and beyond as well. His lessons are the most personalized experiences I have had from a music instructor. He does a great job of answering questions, making everything easy to understand and digest. Honestly I could of never imagined being the guitar player I am (and will be) if it wasn't for Darren. Thank you so Much!

Simple enough to understand the lesson, yet challenging enough to take it one a week.
