A true teacher and talented musician. An inspiration!
Absolutely excellent. It's what I would expect from a professional teacher that cares about what he is passing on to his students.

Stuart is very informative and clear in his instruction, there is no guess work involved and its definitely not just a talk fest!
Stuart was awesome! Great lesson, really helped a lot!!! Great suggestions to go from a minor blues scale to a natural minor and then Dorian Mode.
But how do you figure out what types of scales to use?
Stuart's a tone master.
The pentatonic scale theory lesson opened a magnitude of understanding of what and how to use a pentatonic scale. A lot to chew on, yes, but the light at the end of the tunnel is plainly visible from the start. Thanks Stewart!
very informative and clear.
Well laid out for me
