Customer Testimonials

I've been taking guitar lessons from Derek for over a year now and he's been an invaluable guide on my guitar journey during that time. He has a deep understanding of music theory, technique and tone with an ability to convey that to his students. I've advanced far beyond where I could have on my own in this stretch of time with Derek. I feel much more like a musician rather than a guy who knows how to play a few tabs. I feel I'm developing as a 'whole guitarist.


I was looking for a competent guitar tutor to help me prepare for my Berklee Audition. I am now accepted in the Berklee College of Music and I feel it was a very wise choice to seek guidance from Derek Neece as a guitar instructor.


Simply one of the best guitar players I've ever met, and I've met a lot. Seemingly fluent in every style from straight-ahead rock to blues to jazz to metal to chicken-picking, Derek is, just as importantly, able to translate to your level, from beginning to advanced guitar. He'll teach you what you want to play--no pointless exercises in styles you don't care about. He's patient, he's reliable, his prices are very reasonable; what more could you ask for? Oh, and here's the highest endorsement I can give: I've been taking guitar lessons with him for years, and will continue to do so!


When I started taking guitar lessons from Derek I noticed a huge change. He is really the best teacher I could ever ask for. Thanks so much Derek.
