Dunkan was simply wonderful. We enjoyed his performance. His brought a piano performer with him,it was bonus(!) to his already great set up. We requested a background music, cover songs; our guests wanted to sing, so both Dunkan and Khaleb quickly came up with the accompaniment! We loved it.

I absolutely LOVED having Duncan play at my business launch party! You will not regret hiring him & he (& his band) will bring ALL THE VIBES you need for your special event! He's also just a hands down really nice person and I'm a big fan of his work now. Thanks Duncan & friends!!! Can't wait to jam again real soon.

Guitar Lessons

Iโ€™m so glad I found Duncan as a teacher. I had basic guitar knowledge coming in, have had about 4 sessions with him, and am already leaps and bounds ahead of where I used to be. Iโ€™ve learned and started to use finger style, barre chords, picking, and much more. I already feel much more confident in my playing. The value for price is also astounding. 12/10 would recommend Duncan for any beginner or intermediate/proficient player that wants lasting results ASAP.
