"Gregoire - you are quite honestly, one of the best instructors I've ever seen... On the internet or otherwise. You keep your videos fresh, light, fun - but still extremely educational! You not only provide a note for note example of how something is played, easy enough for a beginner to understand, but you also provide the theory behind what you're teaching - which is TOP NOTCH. Big thumbs up to you Gregoire. Love your sense of humor too, man. Keep up the incredible job!"
"The lessons are great..I have improved my speed and accuracy by leaps and bounds. I love the humor in the lessons. It keeps me coming back!"
"..I have to thank you for helping me improve my skill and fluency on guitar throughout high school. I wouldn't have been able to apply to Berklee without your guidance. Thanks for everything!"
"I feel Greg is an outstanding teacher. He knows how to get the most progress out of my son while keeping the lessons fun. My son loves practicing and playing guitar thanks to him. I see Greg building up his confidence by having him learn increasingly complex material and continually improving his technique."
"In his lessons, Greg shares the music theory of the lessons at many different levels of understanding. From finger placement in the beginning to the composition of the chords, alternate fingerings, variations, and such for more advanced players.
"I've been taking lessons from Greg for the past few months and it has been a blast! I've rapidly improved my knowledge in music, sight reading, and overall skill in playing. The lessons are customized to fit my skill and understanding and he is always available for clarifications."
"Just a note to say that Rory is playing the electric guitar ALL THE TIME. I have never seen him so entranced by anything other than the computer. He spends at least 5 times more time on the guitar now than on the computer. He practices songs he is working on and also just makes things up sometimes. He is so into it. I love hearing the sound all over the house. He has taken everything that you taught him with theory and fingering and is putting it into action with the electric. I've heard him get better and better for the past three months. He loves it and I want to thank you for everything!!!"
"Greg has been a very positive influence on Mason. Despite the escalating time demands of his high school academics and crew team commitments, Mason happily and steadfastly continued his guitar lessons with Greg from about eighth grade through his current senior year in high school. I credit Greg for having the sensitivity to recognize the right amount of pressure to apply to Mason--enough to compel him to develop some competence in the instrument, but not so much as to overwhelm him and turn fun into drudgery. Mason has told me that Greg's relaxed demeanor has given him an ear to which he can speak freely that is different from parent, teacher or peer. Further, he marvels at Greg's expansive knowledge of guitar styles, from classical to contemporary, and feels that he has "lucked" into having a regular audience with a really great talent. That Mason has persevered in his guitar lessons for five years is a real testimonial to Greg's skill as a teacher and mentor."
"Greg's great strengths are his musical diversity and passion for expression. These two traits make him a flexible and adaptive guitar teacher that is willing to guide you on the journey to find you true musical self. Greg while equipped to deliver a large amount of drills to master techniques he is not limited to this type of teaching. His goal as an instructor is to equip you with the ability to express yourself in the universal language of music. He helps you understand that certain chords and scales add different shades of color to the message that you communicate. The way Greg allows each session to be an organic experience helps his students find their own voices makes the learning process unique and exciting. I became Greg’s student 3 years ago. As 36 year old songwriter and vocalist I had been playing and learning on my own for a few years prior to becoming one of his students. When we began working together I had a unique set of skills and challenges to work with and on. He helped me build on my strengths and slowing eliminated some of the bad habits. Working with him over the years was a creative and skill level awakening for me. While I still have many issues to overcome in my playing Greg gave me an effective blueprint to work past all of them. I am a much better player, song writer, and vocalist for having spent the past 3 years as one of his students. Greg’s teaching methods are highly effective and beneficial for all players of any skill level and background."
