Guitar Lessons

Richard (Ian) Farrington is an absolutely amazing guitar teacher. To start, Ian is a fantastic & knowledgeable musician and guitarist. He is very good at communicating his lessons and teaching. He really knows how to simplify a concept or technique and then build from there into more complex techniques and faster playing. Saying that, in the few months Ian and I have worked together, my guitar skills have drastically improved. Next is Ian's Professionalism, which in my opinion is unmatched in the industry. He is on time, extremely well prepared, kind and understanding. He emails me a lesson plan the night before so I can properly prepare for our sessions and really make the most of our time together. He also assisted in creating a binder in order to organize my music and techniques. Overall Ian's Professionalism and organization really allows me to get the most value from our lesson time as well as my individual practice time. Ian has been an absolute pleasure all around in terms of his attitude, knowledge/teaching skills, organization, commitment and overall professionalism. I can't say enough about him. 10 out of 10!

Ian so far has been great! He is great with communicating. He is very organised. He has a set learning schedule set out for my son. He listened to my concerns for teaching style and adapted to it. He brings a variety of teaching techniques to the lessons to engage my son. Thank you!

I've only had one lesson so far but I appreciate Ian's preparation, materials and teaching strategy. I've had progress applying his practicing techniques already and I'm looking forward to taking it all the way.
