Reviews & Referrals

 

Aaron very quickly took me to new levels with a deeper knowledge of the fretboard, reading/understanding tabs, Travis picking, lead guitar and theory, all backed up with disciplined drills. Aaron has taken me to levels and skills I never thought I could accomplish. He hosts jam sessions and open mike nights where his students can play together (and overcome stage fright). Online notes from each lesson are provided so students can review “homework”, link to backing tracks or videos. This has been a very helpful addition to the 1-hour lessons in his basement studio. Very highly recommended!

Aaron is the second guitar teacher I’ve had and by far the best. I’ve progressed in practically every way with my acoustic guitar in less than a year. I feel like each week I’m given the tools, instructions, and encouragement I need to practice and move forward. His knowledge of and skill with guitar are obvious and amazing, but I never feel overwhelmed. Plus he’s just a cool, down-to-earth dude who’s fun to be around. I’d recommend taking lessons with Aaron to anyone!

 
 
 

My son has been taking lessons with Aaron over the last 4 years. Aaron provides a fantastic learning environment and very engaging musical community that allows each student to learn and grow at their own pace. I would enthusiastically recommend Aaron to any student/family looking for a high quality, professional and fun learning experience.

Aaron is super flexible and professional. Adaptive to all learning styles and well versed in teaching guitar! Would reccommend Aaron to anyone! 🙂
