I took Neil’s six week beginner group class. What I loved about it, among other things, was that in those brief six lessons he taught us how to play music immediately. But even better, he taught us how to make music immediately. I had guitar lessons in my teen years, and my dads probably have 40 guitars between them, so I’m not a stranger to the concept. But nobody ever explained to me the steps of the strings, and how to find the notes I was looking for on any string. So not only can I now read music and translate it to the strings, I can figure out how to get the music in my head out. Which is huge.

Thanks, Neil! You are absolutely a rock star!
