“My guitar playing and singing has really improved since getting Al as my teacher.” 

 I love how his methods have helped me grow musically. I am both learning and enjoying it more” 



“Al offers a great deal of support and practice tips to help me navigate thru the tough areas of the tune I am learning.  During online lessons he catches notes I miss, timing issues and watches my technique closely in order to catch and break many bad habits I have formed while playing on my own. I cannot get over how much I have learned and improved.” 



“Al is supportive, patient, and teaches in an easy to understand manner. His passion for music is contagious and it inspires you to put more time into your practice. I always leave my lessons with a smile!”
