From the first moment to the last, [Beginning Hawaiian/Western Swing Lap Steel Guitar] was the best class I have ever taken! Gerald had a clear syllabus which outlined what he would do each day. He was organized in all of his lessons from beginning to end. He combined explanations with presentations and individual help. 

The class was quite varied in ability and he worked with each student on his/her own level. Even the things I had already learned from my teacher at home were covered by Gerald in such a way that I learned even more! I was not in his ukulele class, but all the students from that class, too, told me how much they learned in Gerald’s class.

He is an awesome teacher! I personally hope that he can teach an intermediate lap steel class next year.
