My son has been going to DJ for lessons about 2 years now. He really looks forward to his lessons and Idolizes him. Every now and then we joke with our son and tell him we are going to take him out of guitar lessons and he gets so upset! As for DJ, he is not only an amazing teacher, he is an awesome person! He treats his students as people and equals not as children. He helps his students feel comfortable, makes his lessons fun and encouraging. I would definitely recommend anyone to take lesson from him…as a matter of fact, my husband takes lessons from him as well.
