Vincent aka Vinnie’s class is the best! It’s the perfect class if you’ve wanted to play guitar but didn’t know where to start and want some accountability. It’s a very inviting space - you’ll want to make sure to rent or have a guitar at home to practice. It makes a world of difference when you really do practice 10-15 minutes even just a couple times a week.

Excellent class...!! I can finally play a guitar, after years of trying by myself here and there, which got me nowhere, but with this class I feel the confidence that I can play. Issac was an excellent teacher and the pace was totally manageable for working professionals. I highly recommend this class.

Not very motivating, driven or organized. No concrete goals. Friendly teacher but didn’t meet my expectations. May be a lack of culture/expectation set by the school.

I learned a lot of new techniques in this class that helped built upon the foundation of skills learned in the absolute beginners class. The class went at a good pace and Austin, our instructor, was very knowledgeable and patient. He took the time to make sure we learned the concepts. The class takes time and effort, but it’s worth it! There’s still much to learn, so I’ll go on to the next level!
