I first started taking classical guitar lessons from Mr. Jim Doyle at the age of 11, I am now 22 and still studying under Mr. Jim. When I first told my mother I wanted to take classical guitar lessons I never knew the places it would take me, it has been one of the greatest blessings in my life. Mr. Jim's teachings have given me countless opportunities in life from meeting influential people within the community to adding to my college studies. I highly recommend any child or adult to study the classical guitar, it is a hidden treasure that I hope to someday see become common study among my local area.
"My wife and I have been taking lessons with Jim for several years now. I initially started classical guitar as a way to relax from a high-stress job, but it has become a part of my life. When my wife heard me playing classical arrangements she became interested in learning also, and is now two Suzuki books ahead of me!
Like to try but think you can’t do it? You practice one arrangement at a time, and Jim will take you measure by measure though the entire piece. Jim is patient and helpful, and his knowledge of music theory will help you through any questions that you have with easy to understand explanations. Didn’t have time to practice this week? No problem, life happens, so attend the lesson anyway and you’ll still go home with a greater knowledge and playing skill.
Classical guitar is relaxing and meditative, and Jim can make playing it into a non-stressful event. D. B. Albion, NY
