Wow I didn't expect to have so much fun with guitar lessons! Dennis is an excellent instructor. I'm surprised that I was playing in such little time. Dennis knows how to explain things so they aren't overwhelming and the concepts just click. If you want to learn quickly, have fun then Dennis is your guy.Jul 10, 2018Verified
Can't speak for anyone else, but I can't imagine a better instructor than Dennis...exactly what I was looking for. From the first lesson, I felt comfortable. His depth of knowledge of the guitar and expertise of music in general makes for a pleasant experience. I especially like how Dennis communicates and breaks down each lesson and has a natural patience when answering questions and explaining concepts.Feb 6, 2018Verified
I’m having so much fun, working with Dennis. I’m learning at a pace I didn’t believe was possible, and that I could never reach on my own. Dennis is professional, trustworthy and encouraging. I’m a perfectionist and I don’t have much patience with myself struggling with chords and stuff. But Dennis has patience for both of us, and makes me feel it’s okay not to be perfect (all the time, in every step). It’s practice that gets you there, and Dennis makes that practice FUN! As soon as he leaves my house after a lesson, I immediately pick up the guitar again - and just continue. Lessons are joyful and overwhelming :-) and progress is inevitable. Looking forward to continue our work together.Apr 4, 2018Verified
Guitar Lessons (for adults)
Dennis is a great instructor. He knows what he does and more importantly he (in only two sessions) he seems to know what I need to become a better guitar player. On the first lesson I found myself playing some licks along him, basically I felt for the first time as a guitar player, being able to play along someone else. On the second class I learned some licks and again played along him and a backing track. His method is fun and cuts straight to the chase, which means you play guitar right away. I am very happy I decided to hire him. Totally recommendedMay 9, 2017Verified
Guitar Lessons (for adults)
I am a beginner and was interested in someone that was patient, knowledgeable and able to teach a new player and that is just what I received. Dennis is extremely encouraging from the first moment you speak to him and I could tell that I liked him immediately. His style and laid back attitude is the perfect learning environment for any level. I particularly enjoyed the global perspective of guitar playing that made playing seem much easier that I had imagined. My homework is fun and I cant wait for my second lesson.May 6, 2017Verified
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?Unfortunately, Often times folks do not realize, the old saying "Get what you pay for " is so very applicable to the guitar lesson industry. I've had student's come to me after years of lesson's elsewhere, and the time wasted was shocking, not to mention the exspense. See why my students say "Worth every penny" about my program.
- What types of customers have you worked with?My Client's range in all different situations. All learn basic chord structure, and the ability to play along with most songs, regardless of Genre. I teach everything from Gospel to Rock, Blues, Country and most in between. Some will want to play leads, some just Rhythm, and most need work on their timing of the music. All students from beginner to advanced, share this common knowledge of making a great player. Our methods are thorough, and effective.
- What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?Check your references. There are a lot of great players out here that make horrible teachers. Good teachers have great references.
