"Dugan helped clarify and solidify what I learned as a beginner. He helped me work from simple open chords to barre chords, scales and more complex arrangements. He balances a strong foundation in music writing and theory with years of performance experience. An extraordinary teacher for students at all levels!"

- Lane L. Private student (New York, NY)

"Learning with Aaron is not just learning with a music teacher, it is learning with a musician- somebody who lives his music. I have excelled in music more with Aaron than with any other teacher. When I learn music with Aaron it is not just a theory, it's a reality."

- Mendy M. Skype student (Sydney, Australia)
