I am thrilled that we signed our son up to take part in the ensemble (band) lessons at Pacific Guitar Studio. His improvement since working with Cole (the owner of PGS) has been amazing. Cole is a fantastic teacher and obviously cares about making sure his students are challenged to improve. We re-enroll our son every term, and we will continue to do so, probably until he leaves for college. Cole is great. His teaching is great. The whole thing is great.

Our daughter is a talented drum-kit player, but is too young to easily find a band to join. Solo lessons do not fill the need she has for developing as a part of a band. Cole’s program has provided her with a set of musically talented peers and the framework for learning songs together and preparing for a high stakes gig in a professional setting. His “band coaching” has filled a much needed niche for developing musicians of all ages. The gigs, themselves, are a powerful event, in so many ways, for both the bands and the audience. Fantastic model for a music program and the only one like it in town as far as we have been able to find. Cole is approachable, trustworthy, and serves as an experienced and quite, but effective, musical guide, rather than a director. Thanks, Cole!
