Here’s what past students say:

“A skilled musician doesn’t always an exceptional teacher make. Thankfully, Seth is both. Seth is an attentive and patient teacher who tailors instruction to an individual’s goals while keeping the process of learning challenging and fun. For me, that means just enough music theory and foundational skills to get me playing jazz and the blues… the music I love.”

– Brigitte L.

“The best guitar instructor I’ve ever experienced.”

–  David C.
