Guitar Lessons

I’ve learned more in four lessons with Patrick than in months of in-person lessons with a different instructor. The lessons are leading me in directions that are challenging, interesting, and fun. Patrick is patient and encouraging. He has a laid back personality that works for me so I’m really happy I took a shot in the dark and chose this instructor. He’s also really organized, records sessions for you to rewatch, gives you a folder online to keep music and notes in. Really great.

Guitar Lessons

Patrick is great at assessing playing ability and tailoring the lessons to match the student. He keeps learning and practicing exciting by mixing in music theory with actual songs and suggests great songs to learn that showcase the theory we discussed. I am making great progress with him and would definitely recommend him as an instructor!

Guitar Lessons

I genuinely appreciated Mr Dugan’s punctuality, along with his willingness to help me decipher the confusing sheet music. We went at my pace, and everything we covered he explained fully. I recommend his services if you are of a guitarist of any level
