I have been taking classical guitar lessons this year from Jay Kacherski. Jay has been an outstanding teacher, and I am even more pleased with what he has taught me than I originally expected. Not only is he a fabulous guitar player, but when it comes to my lessons, he is very patient with me, and he has a natural ability to customize and steer the lessons toward my specific desires, requests and overall ability as a guitar player. He has a very friendly and curteous way about him, while still maintaining professionalism. I know that Jay will do great wherever he goes, not just because of his ability as a musician and teacher, but also because of his personality and character which are 'top shelf' in my opinion.
