Like many people in my age group (60+) I took lessons as a child and gave them up to career, kids, etc, and now I have the time to play again! Colin is great to work with, he was good at gauging where I am in my piano journey and listening carefully to tailor his lessons to my needs. He gives me as much theory as I can handle or want and is really good and patient when I don't understand. I give him top marks as a teacher!
Oscar
Colin is a great teacher. I learned to play guitar in middle and high school and hadn't taken a lesson in over 30 years. When I realized I wanted to try lessons again, I found Colin.

He's fun to connect with, relaxed and friendly. He's focused on my goals (learning campfire favorites, classical pieces, finger style, and jazz). And he gives great feedback and constructive tips to keep improving.

Highly recommend!
Julia
Colin has been awesome. Our son is taking lessons for 1.5 years now, mostly online. That's hard enough itself, but Colin managed to teach him amazing songs on the guitar. He is very skilled in all sorts of instruments and has an unique sense of humor and discipline to connect to his students. If you're looking for a great teacher, he's your man.

"Adam’s got some cool blues pockets. I’d never really thought about lead as pockets - kind of like a drummer would think about a fill. So I guess if you think about lead as discrete pockets it should be “easier “ to break down the lead guitar."

A Fun Blues Guitar Exercise to Get You Started

Therefore, said knowledge will imp …

5 Blues Guitar Secrets That Will Make You a Better Player

Learning how to play blues guitar? Pay extra attention to these five things from guitar teacher Mike B.... 1. In Tune Bends The blues guitar style is full of bending strings. Bends, as well as hammer-ons, pull-offs and slides, give guitarists the ability to imitate the way singers use various inflections while singing melodies. However, unlike hammers-ons and slides, bends are not guaranteed to be in tune. Since there is nothing worse than an out-of-tune bend in the climax of a great solo …
