I enjoy having Aaron as an instructor. I have had zero musical instructions ever and was intimidated to even attempt trying guitar. Aaron has given me confidence and always wants me to enjoy what we may play. I always look forward to Monday evening lessons. – Adam J. (Student)
I have been exceptionally pleased with Aaron as Leslie’s instructor. She can be absent minded and is still learning basic concepts like practice and note reading and he is very patient with her. He is direct in communications with me on what we need to work on at home or what we can do to assist. Leslie loves going to lessons and enjoys the time spent. Very pleased to have Aaron as Leslie’s instructor. – Gretchen D. (Parent)
