They hone their skills under the watchful eye of a mentor instructor and have access to address any teaching concerns they may encounter.

"She really has learned a lot from a rather short amount of  time. She plays beautifully and picked up a lot of techniques really quickly. I’m always amazed at the vastness of her artistic talents."  

- Wendy Assel, Smithville, Mo.

"I'm and older student of Tim's. I didn't start taking lessons from  him until I was 69 years old. I have no musical talent but wanted  something to do. Tim has amazing patience with me and a great  sense of humor.
I look forward to every lesson. It's the highlight of  my week.  If guitar is something you've wanted to pursue but weren't  sure, give it a try. Tim won't disappoint you.

He's a terrific teacher and I'd recommend him to anyone."

- Bonnie Green, Smithville,Mo.

"Tim is a wonderful teacher"
