Gregg Hammond is a great instructor! First of all, his online lesson scheduler is really, really helpful so I'm not locked into a weekly time slot; I can book whenever is convenient for me and with a choice of two locations. Secondly, he's very responsive to my requests so we can focus on music that is interesting to me while still making sure the important elements of guitar are covered (as an adult student, that kind of flexibility is really important to me). Thirdly, he's really supportive of other local performing musicians. I'm so glad I finally found a great guitar teacher who is actually in the downtown DC area. Highly recommended!
