"I have only good things to say about Rick. Love to 'jam" with this guy! Planning on working with him until I'm an expert!"

Jody (Torin's mom) wrote: "My son (10 years old) started taking lessons with Rick a couple months ago, and we couldn't be more pleased with him as an instructor. He is very knowledgeable and professional, and he is extremely patient and encouraging, which is a requirement for any instructor, but especially when working with young kids.

"Rick is a very effective communicator, and we brainstorm to find the most meaningful songs and methods for teaching my son. He is extremely accommodating and flexible. He really goes out of his way to make the learning experience a positive one for his students. I highly recommend him for anyone seeking to learn guitar or music theory. He's a wonderful instructor."

"I'm having a blast! Rick really knows how to break things down into pieces and create an effective practice plan. I'm playin'!"

"Rick is very patient and explains things really well. Accommodations for lessons are good, he gave me a solid, productive learning plan, and we are able to work things out between us very well. He's very honest, patient, and friendly."
