Background

=======================================

"This guy is fantastic! Super charismatic! Super encouraging. I am a singer trying to learn how to play guitar and I have definitely chosen the right person! He offers curriculum every week so you get to tackle different challenges which keeps you wanting more."
- Mia, Student/Customer.

"As a beginning bass guitar student, I'm very pleased with the progress I've made with just a few lessons from Ray. He has a training process that provides a "map" for improvement. You'll get on the right track with Ray."
- Mark, Student/Customer.

"Before I started taking lessons with Ray, I had a little experience playing guitar and reading tabs- but there were many songs and styles I could not learn myself. Ray not only taught be how to play the song correctly, but also taught me how to understand the music theory behind the song and style, so that I could learn to play songs I like by ear correctly in the future. I highly recommend Ray’s lessons for both brand new guitar students and guitarists looking to improve." - Brian, Student/Customer
