Of course, my opinion is good because it's my studio. Feel free to come by (MWF 10AM to 5PM, TTh 10AM to 8PM) or call (815)319-0942 to inquire. My teaching experience goes back 10 years and my playing experience goes back 23 years. For references, call anyone at Randee's Music (399-1500), Craig at Guzzardo's (229-5020) or Andy at Guitar Center (399-7241).
My teaching philosophy is to help students find a balance of developing great technique while pursuing a truly heartfealt approach to making music. The best music if from the heart no matter what style.
