I'm a 54 year old male who had never played a guitar before this, so I didn't know what I was getting into. I just randomly called Tim Gleeson after scouring the Internet for a guitar teacher. Tim was totally accepting of me & cut out a slice of time to accomodate my busy schedule - I work nights in IT. I was really nervous at first, but Tim put me totally at ease. Tim is methodical, organized, not high-pressure, but teaches you with respect & certain expectations that he wants you to achieve. He's very patient and gave me a great foundation to build upon. You'll keep wanting to come back for more & more tips and lessons because he makes you believe in yourself. I was playing the "12-Bar Blues" in no time. Tim is a great teacher, but has also become a great friend and advisor as to what equipment I should buy. I highly reccomend Tim Gleeson.
