I started taking lessons from Tobin when I was 36 years old. I'd had a guitar since college and every few weeks I'd pick it up and try to improve, but I wasn't getting anywhere on my own. Tobin quickly identified the gaps in my understanding of music, introduced me to styles of playing that I loved, and helped me progress so quickly and enjoyably that I found myself playing my guitar virtually every day. That was 2 years ago, and since then Tobin has helped me to explore the fretboard, to understand music theory, and to play comfortably with other guitarists. In every lesson Tobin shows an incredible ability to assess where I'm at, to suggest options for where I might want to go, and to spell out specific techniques and exercises to get me there. Tobin's patient guidance has turned me into a lifelong guitarist. I can't thank him enough, and I would recommend his instruction to anyone who wants to be given the inspiration and tools to improve.
