Keith is an awesome guitarist and person BUT what separates him in the teaching field is how well he connects with students at their performance level. He gives you materials to work on that will challenge you, you’re continuously hitting milestones for the work you put in. Lessons are professional, maximized time efficiency, and super fun! You’ll also be totally inspired learning guitar theory and developing a relationship with music! knowledge, skill-set,Feb 16, 2021VerifiedGuitar Lessons for Adults's reply
Wow, thanks Sarena! It’s a pleasure working with you!

Keith is a great teacher and the man. He makes sure learnings are a good mix of theory and songs, and he teaches songs you’re interested in. I also like the follow up notes and guitar tabs he sends after our lessons. Taking classes on zoom has worked out great, especially since you can record clips and refer back to them later. Keith isn’t afraid to give you a challenge either which I like! Always on time and flexible when my schedule changes. Recommend 👍Jan 23, 2021Verified

Got my first couple of lessons with Keith and they’ve been great! I’ve played guitar for for a while but I am self-taught so there are a lot of bad habits and elemental things I skipped over and Keith was quick to point those out and gave me practice exercises to help me out and move to the next level. Highly recommend.Jan 8, 2021Verified

Had my first introductory lesson and I'm already playing two cords. I look forward to my next lesson to see what is next. Keith has been very patient and showed me a few tricks to get me going. I feel like I'll be playing some basic songs soon and I'm actually enjoying something that had become tiresome, as I wasn't getting it. I have tried all kinds of books and videos to try ind figure out how to play guitar. I learned more in a quick lesson than I did the entire few months I tried on my own. Thanks for the positive attitude.Dec 23, 2020Verified

Keith is an excellent teacher and I would not hesitate to recommend him to anyone looking to improve their skills as a musician. I am fairly new to playing guitar and Keith has been informative, patient, and encouraging. He has an excellent ability to break down technique and style into lessons that are both challenging and easy to follow. I look forward to continuing to develop my abilities as a guitarist under Keith’s instruction.Aug 31, 2020VerifiedGuitar Lessons for Adults's reply

They have one of the world’s most prestigious jazz programs where he learned from some of the greatest musicians and teachers on the planet.
