‘As a teacher I pride myself on being able to find the balance between fun and professional; guitar lessons should be something that students look forward to each and every week. We all learn guitar for different reasons and I do my best to accommodate the interests of my students, while ensuring the fundamentals are being covered. This ensures students move forward, while also becoming well rounded and versatile musicians’. ~ Sam McAuliffe
