I've been taking lessons with Patrick for a month at this point and am very happy I chose him. I was skeptical about online lessons at first but after trying them I can't imagine a better way to learn at this point. All of the lessons are recorded so you can go over anything you did in the lesson while practicing which I find really useful. He also has a lesson folder with all the material we go over that will have notations based on questions I asked during the lesson. I really enjoy having a set lesson plan so that I am not guessing what to work on to improve, like when I was trying to learn on my own. When we start a lesson he will ask how practice went during the week and he is extremely good at helping me work out any issues I may have had. I would recommend Patrick to anyone looking to improve their guitar playing and musical knowledge.

I was a little anxious about taking guitar lessons online, however, Patrick completely re-framed my view on remote guitar lessons. He’s taught me more than I’ve ever learned previously — such as tips that would of taken weeks to realize. He’s great!

Patrick was easy to communicate with about our event- very responsive. We had a Neighborhood NYE Party for about 30ppl. He came on time, set up, and began to entertain our guests. Independent and worked hard all night. Really fit in. Great sing alongs. An accomplished musician. Very laid back and pleasant personality. FUN! We had to do NOTHING. He’s really talented. We look forward to having him back for other events soon. Fernando Mayol, Asheville.
