The goal at Prestige Guitar is to keep the lessons fresh, interesting, and to ultimately guide the students to educate themselves as they gain experience and familiarity with the instrument. With lessons that are tailored to the styles our students wish to pursue, we can build upon their strengths and focus on opportunities to improve weaker areas. Every student is unique. For some, music becomes a passion, others, a new hobby.  Whatever the goal, Prestige Guitar is here to help!

We covered some vitally important techniques and theory that really needed clarifying in my mind. I feel like the door has opened to potentially rapid improvements in the months to come. Cole is an excellent tutor - I am looking forward to our next lesson and highly recommend him!

Awesome lesson. Cole really caters to what the student wants to know. He made sure I grasped each and every topic we covered, and he is extremely welcoming and patient with the many questions I have! Super approachable and insightful.

Great teacher! I love that Cole assessed where I am and jumped right into giving the steps I can do to become a better player. He doesn't just teach and explain, but makes sure that we are growing as players. I'm excited to learn more from him!

Highly recommend this teacher! I was in a rut with my playing and had some substantial break thrus with Cole's guidance. A very no-pressure approach yet highly efficient. This dude knows his stuff and clearly defines concepts and approaches to becoming a better player. Really good teacher!

This was my third lesson with Cole and he's been great! As an intermediate player that is far past the beginning stages of playing, I have mostly self taught myself lots of theory on YouTube, but it can be extremely difficult to piece all this information together by myself because all of these videos give "fragments" of information here and there. Cole has been great for helping me piece all this information together in ways that can improve my playing (I am focusing on how to be able to make my own songs and "jam" with other musicians by improvisation). He is very knowledgeable on guitar theory and will not leave the lesson until he is sure that you are grasping the concepts. I look forward to continuing lessons with him, and he is clearly very passionate about which he is teaching.

Just had my first class with Cole. As an intermediate player looking to improve my soloing, Cole helped me much better understand modes which will hopefully open up tons of doors for me. Modes can be a tough concept and I was a bit confused at first, but Cole was very patient and didn't give up helping me to learn until it finally clicked.

During my first lesson with him, Cole did a great job assessing my music knowledge (beginner level) and introducing me to some of the basics of jazz chord structure and theory, which I had asked for, in a very accessible manner. I'm looking forward to continue working with Cole to build a foundation for playing jazz guitar without becoming overwhelmed with too much music theory, but just enough to keep me moving forward.
