Reviews for Jason Vieaux's Guitar Lessons

  • "This is a great methodology for teaching, way better than Skype You can never beat private lessons with the constant real time corrections, but this is great because whether it's noon or midnight, it's there. Whatever life throws at you, you can still maintain your lessons. Plus who could afford private lessons with Jason Vieaux?" Derek
  • "The coolest thing is to get your first video response from Jason. When a guitarist of his caliber talks to you personally and gives you direction on improving your playing, my motivation to practice skyrockets!" Rich_G
