David is a very knowledgable teacher and just a joy to learn from. If you want to learn how to be a good guitar player vs just learning a song, go see David. He truly understands the guitar and makes it fun and you build on each lesson. Thanks David! - Lisa V. - Dana Point CA
"David is terrific. I like his teaching style. He's patient and very effective in his lessons. My son has progressed very well in a short period of time. I recommend him and the G4 program". - Vicki M. Lake Forest CA US.
Fantastic instructor. David is patient and engaging and my kids (ages 7, 8 & 12) have learned so much from him. They think he is awesome and they look forward to their weekly lessons. - Heidi G. Lake Forest CA. US.
David taught me how to deconstruct a chord and find the right notes to fit the song, lessons that I use to this day and I have never forgotten. Maybe this is why as a musician, singers find it easy to work with him. His knowledge and willingness to listen to what is needed is unbeatable, he is quite simply a consummate guitarist and I am very proud of the music we produced and songs we have written together. Graham Brooks - Singer, Song Writer, London England
I had the pleasure of David teaching me Spanish guitar from an early age in London. He was a source of inspiration to me as I progressed through the grades and eventually started to learn electric guitar. As well as being a patient and thoughtful teacher, he also made lessons fun and introduced me to both the technical and feel based playing which set a solid foundation for my future musical career. I will not forget David as being my favorite and most memorable tutor in my youth.- Allan Fenwick, London, England
David's instruction will not only get you going in the right direction with your guitar playing, but will also help you establish the proper fundamentals for a lifetime of fun on the guitar! -John Scott Evans - Guitarist / Recording Artist

My grandson has the lessons with Jay. He is 11 years old and Jay is always patient and encouraging. He makes the lesson easy for him to follow, and tries to do different things with him to make it enjoyable, and interesting. I would have no hesitation in recommending him to anyone who wants to learn to play, whatever age. - Churm Janet - Tipton UK.
Jay is a passionate and knowledgeable teacher who is patient and gives clear instructions when going through the study material. The stepwise approach works and practice time tracker sheet continues to motivate my daughter to practice her guitar every day , and after 2 mths, she can play several tunes!

"My 4 year old son, Charlie, is loving his guitar lessons. Trevor the instructor makes the lessons so much fun and he is great with Charlie and very patient.

The G4 method seems to be a great tool for teaching people the guitar, I sit in on my partners son's lessons and have been very impressed how far he has come in short space of time. I once tried to teach myself the guitar and failed miserably through lack of real knowledge and guidance. Having watched the lessons I am now tempted to possibly book myself in and give it another go. Shane is very understanding, knowledgeable teacher, who as I have already mentioned is getting great results with my partners son in a very short space of time. I'm really hoping my partners son sticks with it, because I am really excited to see where Shane can get him to over the up and coming months.
Thanks for writing. I'm absolutely delighted both with Shane and with the G4 Method.
It is a privilege to be taught by as talented a musician as Shane, and he also strikes exactly the right tone in his lessons, working through the different disciplines in each lesson and keeping to the schedule while being flexible about aspects that need more or less work. I am a classically trained singer, 'cellist, and (to a lesser extent) double & electric bass player, so I have a solid background in music and can recognise Shane's great talents. He's put me in a "group" (there's only two of us so far, so still plenty of individual attention) with another trained musician who is also picking up guitar, so we're on the same wavelength and can progress without any frustration about going back to the basics of theory etc.
I'm also a fan of the G4 Method. Compared with the learning curve on my other instruments, I'm making very rapid progress towards being able to play "proper" music and I attribute much of that to how well the course is structured. Even with little time to practice during the week, and no time to play things that are not in the syllabus, I'm loving being able to play (OK, much simplified...) versions of great songs and that's a great motivator.
