Jeremy was patient and had great insight into becoming a better performer. I can’t thank you enough for enabling me to reach a lifelong dream.
We had such a great experince with Jeremy!
Jeremy is a wonderful guitar instructor. He’s got a great teaching style that incorporates not only guitar but also general music theory.
Lessons with Jeremy have always been a joy. He is able to teach at YOUR level and not play so far ahead of your skill level, this really helped keeping me motivated. His ability to transfer his knowledge and skill onto the student is beyond amazing. Thanks Jeremy for the gift of music!
