When I started taking lessons with Max, I knew three chords and very little about music theory. I never thought I would get past G-C-D. His patience and structured lessons helped me become a better player. Max is very encouraging and that was most appreciated. I have more confidence in my playing thanks to him. I even understand the circle of fifths!

Max is a very patient and experienced teacher. I enjoyed my lesson with him and will be back for more.

"You can say that I'm a rookie when it comes to playing guitar. So, I decided to do something about it. I'm taking 45 minutes sessions with Nick and I have to say that he is a really talented a teacher as well as he is a musician. While having fun during the lessons, I rake in so many new tricks up my sleeve. I love his individual approach, flexibility, and creativity just to outline a couple. For the short while that I've known Nick, he's been all, a patient teacher, a talented musician, but most of all he's been an inspiration to me. My goal was to learn to read music and learn how to play the instrument more fluently. But now, the whole world of new and fascinating opportunities opened up to me because of his mentoring and support. Thank you Nick! I wish I could take longer sessions with you on a more regular basis."

"Started taking lessons with Don at Imperial Guitar, and followed him to Walden and still take lessons from him today. My son started taking lessons at 12 from him, and still will resume after he returns from Basic.
Dons a phenomenal instructor- easy to follow, challenges you as a student, yet not so fast that you feel overwhelmed or disheartened by the new skills. He’s a gifted musician too, that loves watching his students reach the next level in confidence and skills. You couldn’t find a better , more committed instructor to your success if you tried.
Lessons are fun,"
