My son has had only about 4 lessons, but he is playing the guitar! My son really likes him and responds well to his teaching style. Bruce is very focused and organized. He comes to our house, which is fabulous. OverallMay 25, 2015Verified
Guitar Lessons (for adults)
Bruce is thorough in his lessons. I have some knowledge of the guitar. Bruce is making sure that what I have learned, that I understand why it is what it is. Bruce is very patient and wants me to learn correctly. He's even working on breaking some bad habits I have already developed. Very happy with this teacher.Jan 21, 2017Verified
Guitar Lessons (for adults)
Bruce is awesome. He is patient, and knows how to not only teach guitar, but tune the lessons depending on how I am doing week to week. He keeps it lighthearted while we progress. Highly recommended.Feb 7, 2017Verified
Guitar Lessons (for children or teenagers)
I feel very fortunate to have found Bruce for guitar lessons for my daughter. I had other guitar teachers before but none of them were of the quality of Bruce. He has a well grounded lesson plan and is teaching my daughter how to properly play a guitar vs. just teaching her to play notes or chords on a page. He is very personable and professional and knows how to convey ways to improve without sounding critical. He welcomes questions and is willing to vary the routine (adding in holiday songs or a song my daughter really wants to learn) to keep things interesting. He is even taking the time to adjust a more complicated song my daughter wants to play to her skill level. My daughter loves to play the guitar and I have no doubt her interest is being maintained by her lessons with Bruce.May 2, 2017Verified
Bruce has been an excellent instructor throughout my first year of guitar lessons. He continues to impress me in presenting new ways to learn as well as in regards to being patient in re-instructing a technique or guitar nuance, when I may have forgotten or overlooked something I was previously shown. I would gladly recommend him to any student (adult or otherwise) with the interest in learning guitar.Jan 2, 2015
- What should the customer know about your pricing (e.g., discounts, fees)?I try to make them reasonable. I have not changed my prices in years.
- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I have an associates degree in electronics, which included a class on audio. I took guitar lessons for ten years. I have a life-long interest in music and audio.
- How did you get started doing this type of work?It was by accident really. A friend of mine, who had been my guitar teacher, called me up and asked if I wanted to teach a group guitar class. He was scheduled to teach it but his schedule would not permit him to do it. I interviewed for and got the job.
