Van’s dedication and disiplined approach to his craft and genuine care for his students is unparalleled. Van understands that each person approaches learning guitar differently and he tailors his lessons to suit the individual needs of each student. While he takes learning seriously, his approach is full of humor and fun. Van’s lessons are well prepared, engaging, enjoyable and affordable.
