Ross has a gentle and fantastic method of approach that makes you feel comfortable and confident. Under his direction, I was able to start to find my way around the neck, improve my finger picking and touch up on my chord knowledge.
Heading into the studio and out on the road with my guitar is now a joy thanks to Ross and his gentle words of wisdom.
I would highly recommend Ross if you serious about playing and or just after some casual lessons from a great guy and guitar teacher.
I came to Ross with no musical background just a desire to play the guitar.
I thought I would be giving him his biggest challenge yet but with Ross’ patience and skills I quickly grew confident, I was able to go at a pace I felt comfortable with and using some of my favorite songs has made it really enjoyable.
Ross has been an exceptional teacher - amiable, patient and very passionate about what he does.
Starting out as a beginner, he taught me a solid foundation of technique and basic theory, as well as working through some modern songs that I was keen to learn.
I have taken guitar lessons with Ross for over two years now, and have never felt so inspired by anyone before. He has connected with me on both a personal and professional level, which has helped me to open up and believe in myself.
I've become more confident with my playing, my writing and my performing. I have Ross to thank for being such an amazing person and believing in me and my music.
Ross' system takes the mystery out of theory, and let's melody and harmony be the King. If a Drummer can learn this then ...Damn he's good!
Ross is very enthusiastic and passionate about his music, especially the guitar, and is able to impart his knowledge and expertise to us with ease.
His own playing during our lessons is a source of inspiration.
I could always play guitar before starting lessons with Ross, but I also always knew there was more in me, and every lesson I develop new ways to get some of it out of me and onto the guitar.
The musical road is never ending, but so long as you've got a teacher as great as Ross helping you drive down it, you won't want it to end!
I never had any music or guitar background and no confidence in playing, but Ross has completely changed me and has made me believe in myself and made me a stronger person.
He will never let you give up and will always encourage you to keep going.
My guitar playing and musical knowledge have improved exponentially due to Ross’ expert guidance and teaching method.
When you hear Ross play so well and discuss music in general, you know that he has put in many hours of efficient practice which only inspires and motivates me to work harder.
I would highly recommend Ross to anyone at any stage of this journey seeking to take their guitar playing and understanding of music to the next level.
In a male-dominated area like guitar playing, I have always felt entirely comfortable with Ross. He is unfailingly patient, and always encourages technical precision while keeping things fun and exciting.
I think Ross could teach just about anyone successfully, but if you’re a woman or an adult just starting out or refreshing your skills, then Ross is likely to be the best teacher you could ever find.
