what students are saying:

"I came to Pat as an intermediate/advanced guitar player. Pat helped me hone in on my weaknesses and fill the gaps of my knowledge, making me a more confident and well-rounded player.  Our work is never finished when it comes to art and learning the guitar! Pat just helps you get there more quickly and have fun in the process." -NB


"Pat is amazing, patient, talented, and fair-priced. Do your homework she gives you each week. I am playing some songs and beginning to read music in four lessons. I was clueless before I started. Thank you!" -TS
