Rod is a legit musician that can teach someone how to be a musician. Extremely professional and always has lessons prepared. I wouldn't use anyone else on any platform. I highly recommend him for lessons.

Rod is a fantastic guitar teacher. He always makes lessons fun and shares lesson notes and videos after each session to further explain the concepts covered. Rod is the best!

Amazing teacher for a many reasons: 1. Has an amazing mix of knowledge and charisma, as a beginner things can sometimes feel overwhelming, and it's rare to find a teacher that can offer both instruction, but have you leave with a smile as well. 2. Rod came to the lesson with a lesson plan in place, based off of our prior messages. 2. He offered easy to understand answers to questions I thought would be very complicated. 3. He smoothly deviated from the lesson plan further to head down a more focused path to help me reach my goals after we talked a bit more. 4. You could feel his enthusiasm for music in general, and more especially teaching. 5. Makes himself available outside of lessons to answer questions or further explain ideas. Overall, Rod's lessons are fantastic experience, I would recommend them to everyone.

Another great lesson with Rod. He is so enthusiastic, he makes it so much fun, and his lessons have made it easy to get better quickly, I can’t wait for the next one.

Rod was patient and understanding. He answered all my questions and was clear and precise. He by far exceeded my expectation. I'm an advanced guitar player and he made everything fun. I would recommend him as a teacher to everyone no matter what your skill-level

Rod is great! Very knowledgable and enthusiastic. He explains things clearly and the entire experience is fun and informative. I feel like I learned a ton in just one lesson and I'm booking my next lesson now.

In three lessons (so far), Rod has taught me more theory and technique than what I tried to learn on my own for decades.
