Student Testimonials:

Michele W. - Los Angeles, CA, USA:

"I can't say enough good things about Neil. If you don't choose him for your guitar teacher then you are missing out. Neil is not only an incredibly talented guitar player, he is highly educated and knowledgeable about anything guitar related. As a teacher, I would say, he is what I wish all my teachers were like throughout my education. Neil is a very kind person with the patience of a saint. He is very clear with his instruction and he teaches each student based on their own individual abilities. It's obvious he loves teaching and he genuinely cares about his students and their progress. Neil has been teaching guitar to my 13 yr old son for the past 4 years, who never played guitar before, and he has become a really good player and he can read both sheet music & guitar tablature. This is all due to Neil's full scope teaching approach. Neil has also been teaching me guitar for the same amount of time. I had guitar lessons back when I was my son's age but I never felt I learned anything and my teacher was not inspiring at all. I never continued playing but always wished I had. Neil is inspiring! Whether you're 5 or 50, Neil knows how to teach anyone at any age how to play the guitar based on their level of desire. He is also totally reliable and professional."

Tommi T. - Los Angeles, CA, USA:

"Neil is an exceptional guitar teacher (and player and performer)! He taught my son guitar lessons for years and was very knowledgeable and patient and, from what I can tell, really improved my son's skills. Neil was always extremely professional--very reliable, easy to schedule appointments, always on time, and he exuded a calm, caring attitude. It's such a gift when someone with Neil's talent is open to sharing it by teaching others."

Andrew W. - Los Angeles, CA, USA:

"Neil is the greatest guitarist and teacher I’ve ever met. He’s extremely patient and simply the best."

Lisa S. - Los Angeles, CA, USA:

"You can’t get a better guitar instructor than Neil. He’s fabulous, very patient, kind, and well trained in his field. My son was very happy with him for many years. If you can get a spot with him, take it! You won’t regret it."
