Gary is giving lessons to my son who will be attending Oklahoma City University in their musical theater and vocal performance program this fall. My son will be required to take two semesters of piano. Gary is doing a fantastic job of preparing Scott for this task. Extremely pleased with Gary and would recommend him to any student or adult looking for beginning piano lessens or to improving on your current skills.

One More Chance (track #6) floored me, totally love it. It reminds me of Joe Satriani. The flow is very melodic. Also really enjoyed Takin’ Back (track #8) and Wait For It (track #4). Lots of Paul Gilbert influences in there I think amongst others. Nice production as well.
