"My daughter Annie has loved taking guitar lessons from Charlie. He is an incredible teacher and patient while teaching. Charlie is great explaining things. He has given my daughter such confidence as she is playing songs and progressing fast.Charlie is such a nice guy and makes my daughter feel comfortable at all times. My daughter wanted to learn a certain song to play for her aunt and uncle, due to the recent passing of her cousin. Charlie was fantastic and helped her learn it.I really can’t say enough good about our experience with Charlie. He is seriously such a good teacher and person."

"I started guitar lessions with Charlie a couple of weeks ago. Communication before we met was great as he asked what my goals are and how we could meet them. My goal in guitar lessons was to be able to play beatles songs. So during our first lesson he taught me how to play the main parts to Blackbird. Within minutes i was (slowly) plucking the strings to hear a Beatles song. It was such a fun experience! He has been so patient and encouraging to me.Charlie has also been great answering all my questions about getting my kids involved in guitar lessons as well. I highly recommend for anyone wanting to learn the guitar."

"Charlie has been teaching my son guitar for 6 months. With his expert help my son has excelled very quickly. When my son plays, it sounds like he’s been playing for years. Every week Charlie has your musician choose from a few songs appropriate for their skill level. He also picks out songs they want to play.Charlie is a fantastic musician and a wonderful teacher. You will be happy when you hire him."

"My son is 13 and has been taking guitar lessons from Charlie for about 7 months now. My sons progression has been impressive to me within that 7 months. Charlie is very knowledgeable with guitars and music.Charlie focuses on teaching my son the genre of music my son likes. My son has nothing but good things to say about Charlie. I would highly recommend Charlie to any guitarist looking to improve or begin guitar. He’s a pretty great teacher and very talented!"

"When I was looking for a guitar teacher for my 12 year old son, I wanted someone who’d be engaging, fun, make the learning experience enjoyable, and teach quality skills. Charlie was the perfect find!!He is super knowledgeable, interacts really well with youth, teaches outside of the box, and keeps my son engaged. Guitar is now my son’s favorite activity. It’s been shocking how much he’s learned in the 5 months Charlie has been his teacher. We even drive clear out of our way for Charlie. I would HIGHLY recommend him."
