My 7 year old son had his first lesson last night and it went better than I could have ever imagined! My son has no prior music experience or knowledge about playing guitar. Ed was extremely patient and positive with my very inquisitive little guy. I was very impressed with Ed's demeanor and ability to keep him focused for the entire lesson. My son walked away last night echoing what he learned which was everything from the parts of the guitar, naming each string and eager to practice the techniques Ed taught him. We are very excited to continue with weekly scheduled visits.

Never picked up an instrument before, other than a flutophone when I was in elementary school. (Which was many years ago) Met with Ed O'Brien for the second time. I have already learned so much in 2 lessons from naming all the parts of my guitar to reading notes & knowing all the strings & playing different frets. He is very knowledgeable, pleasantly patient & has flexible. I highly recommend and hour lesson. It goes by quick.

Have had only a few lessons with Ed and have found him an excellent patient teacher who has a wonderful way to make even people like me, with little knowledge of music, understand!
