Comments: Adrian is in his 2nd year with Ian and is thoroughly enjoying his lesson time. He especially enjoyed the jam session; Ian organized with some of the other students this fall and he looks forward to doing it again. The studio is really well run and I truly appreciate the assistance in scheduling our lessons when time confilcts arise. All in all, we are having a terrific experience with the lessons and the studio in general. Keep up the excellent work! Cecilia (Adrian's Mom).
My son has taken guitar lessons from Ian for a number of years. I personally have attended every lesson, and we both have been extremely satisfied with the quality of instruction that he has received. Ian not only makes the lessons enjoyable, but tailors them to suit the age, ability and preferences of the student. I highly recommend Ian for anyone who is considering taking guitar lessons, or enrolling their child. Ryan
I took bass guitar lessons from Mr. Martens for two years. Although I had been playing bass for several years, Mr. Martens was my first professional instructor. Mr. Martens is extremely knowledgable, and has a large repertoire of various styles of music; I always played something that I found interesting and challenging. I learned so much from him over those two years (everything from playing scales to writing my own bass lines), but the most important lesson that I learned from Mr. Martens was to be confident and enjoy playing.

Ian played at our church ceremony and also at our reception. The church ceremony was absolutely beautiful and Ian was a pleasure to deal with. He was open to all suggestions, and he also came with many brilliant suggestions himself. He created a beautiful atmosphere in the church and then at the reception. All of our guests commented on how nice the music was and I would definitely recommend Ian for any style of wedding. Thank you so much! Jana and Brian
