I can’t express with words what an amazing experience this has been for my son. He absolutely loves the guitar class and teacher… my son’s teacher has always been beyond magnificent. I highly recommend this school for any family/children who might be exploring music classes. My son started when he was about 4 year old and now at 9 year old….
