Jeff is an amazing guitar tutor
Jeff is a great musician and a very clear tutor. He helped me get started and I went from being a beginner to finally playing the songs I’ve always wanted to play!

Anne is patient and great tutor
Anne is super patient and very sweet. When I was looking for lessons I wanted the best guitar tutor, but I was afraid because I get very demotivated when I make mistakes and learning guitar you are meant to make many! But she was always positive and helped me get over every challenge. Her method was comprehensive and covered many things that I had not even thought of. I feel now confident enough to play for my family and friends! Thank you, Anne!
