Neil Mattson of Montavilla Guitar Studio is the most patient, positive, and skilled instructor! I had little previous experience, other than loving music. In just 10 weeks I have learned more than I had ever thought possible!  I am resurrecting a long neglected dream and loving every minute of it! Mary B.
