Choosing a guitar instructor for our child appeared to be a daunting task. Finding someone that dedicates his craft to suit young minds. We have done just that when stumbling upon Joe Hodgin. He has dedicated his profession to teaching music to our son in a way that has been effective and meaningful. He pushes Jalen to not only play the guitar, but allows him to play in a way that connects with him personally. He's learning the music, but Joe has also given Jalen, and the rest of his students, the opportunity to experience real life studio recording sessions as well as live venue gigs that I've never seen other instructors do. Overall, my wife and I are extremely pleased to have Joe as Jalen's instructor. His passion and love of music have extended to our son; which we are certain will continue to have an impact in years to come. We look forward to what they will create together in the future, and we thank him for his commitment, dedication and passion he brings to us every week.
