I just completed a 12-week course with Neil at Montavilla Guitar Studio. I started without any knowledge/skills to speak of and Neil was exactly what I needed. He took the time to clearly explain concepts, reinforce understanding, provide just the right amount of challenge to keep things interesting and continually build motivation along the way. He’s clearly put a lot of thought into the best way to help someone learn. On top of all of that, he’s a great guy. He’s kind, patient, easy-going and friendly. I highly recommend. Scott W.
