"I can't tell you how much I am enjoying your live videos on your teaching.  You are awesome and easy to follow.  My grandson plays drums (he's only 10) and even stops what he's doing to listen."

-- Debra Sickles; San Leandro, CA

"What I really appreciate about your teaching, apart from the clarity you bring to helping us learn the practical elements of mastering guitar playing, is the psychological aspect and how to deal with the inevitable mental blocks any learner is going to meet. Great lessons, great teacher."

-- David Milton Jones, Tel Aviv, Israel

"Thank you for your wonderful online guitar lessons. I'm a 52 year old British teacher, teaching English in China. Last week  I was able play a song, first time, to my students,  I was a hit. Could not have done it without your great teaching. I still think you are the best guitar teacher out there and I have learnt a lot from your online lessons."

-- Giovanni Soave; currently in China

Your teaching approach is spot-on: step-by-step, illustrate, play. I began playing 5 years ago but still feel like beginner. You continue to suggest hints to help playing. He usually plays a classical, good because that is my favorite to play, especially when learning a new technique.

You are a masterful teacher. (I once supervised hundreds of public school teachers so feel qualified to make that judgement.) Thank you for enhancing both my level of enjoyment and my progress in learning to play the guitar.

-- Donald McBride, Florida

"Just a quick note to say how great I think your training is. I subscribed probably a year ago...but was too impatient to get competent i tried to race through your lessons...and of course burned out and quit for awhile. But now I am going slowly..enjoying the journey rather than focusing on the destination and I am having much more fun. You are a great, caring teacher and I really appreciate what you have put together here."

-- Curt Berrien, Berkeley, CA

I can't say enough good things about my online guitar lessons! My playing has improved dramatically since I began Tomas' online program and I have learned a better way to approach learning the guitar. I love the easy-to-follow videos. I can say I've learned more in the past month than I did in several years of trying to teach myself.
