I purchased Jeffrey’s guitar lessons for my husband. Jeffrey is great at his craft. He is punctual, patient and pours into his students. After the first session, the melody from the guitar strings carried throughout my home. My husband was excited to execute what he learned. We look forward to future guitar sessions with Jeffrey.
Couldn’t be more pleased with Jeff and his teaching skills! I would say the review from Patricia is very misleading and after hearing Jeff’s side of the story I am shocked Groupon allows false reviews on merchants like the one she posted. Jeff provided me with his Skype link and I had our accounts connected within 5 minutes and we scheduled for the next day!
The classes for my son have been fun and productive. Jeff provides great direction and worksheets so it is very clear what the practice focus should be! Hang in there Jeff!
Zero stars appropriate. Jeff was easy to set appointment but when I couldn’t get Skype to load and asked for Google hangouts, as offered on deal, he said he said he refunded (which he had not) and immediately blocked me. Not the kind of unreasonable influence I want in my kid’s life. I had already purchased the required book and he’s a no show. No lesson gave me time to sort out with Groupon.
I received a gift of lessons from my wife for my 59th Birthday!
A little background on me; I've been working in the computer field 30+ years. I spend a lot of time with photography as well. I picked up an electric guitar just as we left the “Before Times”, since I knew a few chords from my younger days and no commute time to deal with, I figured I could be proficient by 2022, with the wonders of YouTube and the like. Well that will get you as far as a riff here and there but it’s really no way to learn, Trust me, my wife (and daughters) concur.
At almost 60, I wasn’t interested in theory (yet), different types of scales and so on. I just want to pick up my guitar and play some blues/rock/R&B, how hard could that be? Looks simple enough. As a 59 year old with all my years and wisdom I am still basically an 8 year old, I hate to practice!
Having had only two lessons with Jeff so far and spending time discussing what my goal is as well as evaluating how I even hold the guitar, he has set me on the right path.
Jeff presents clear, logical instructions based on skill level and takes the time to answer basic questions and explain concepts when needed to give a bigger picture.
I look forward to my upcoming lessons and would definitely recommend Jeff to anyone wanting/needing online lessons.
He was efficient with the time we had. He seems to have a teaching style that would be easy to learn from. Very friendly, easy to talk to. He helped me with my guitar fundamentals. I will be booking more lessons with him in the future.
