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!

My daughter who is 9 has been taking guitar lessons with Aaron for over a month now, and loves it! Aaron is not only a great teacher, but a great role model. Aaron is always attentive and very patient while teaching. The studio is a great space to learn in and very comfy for parents to hang out in.

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.

I have had two lessons with Aaron and I’m playing bass for a great old rock song. That makes it fun-which is what music is all about for me. I think he can take you to whatever level of playing you are willing to strive for.
