When I first started to play guitar I knew nothing at all about the guitar.  I Just knew I wanted to play.  I tried reading books on how to play and signed up for some online training too.  None of that compared to what I got from Glen as my instructor.  Glen not only taught me how to play guitar he also taught me to understand what I was playing.  Since taking lessons from Glen I have gone from not knowing how to tune my guitar to writing my own riffs and songs.  While learning to play guitar with Glen I also learned how to play some of my favorite riffs of the radio.  I highly recommend Glen if you really want to appreciate playing guitar and playing the guitar well.

Before Glen I had two different teachers.  Although they were great guitarists, teaching what they know is another story.  Glen is a teacher.  He has a wealth of knowledge and knows how to pass it on.  It is quite obvious when you go into his studio that he has been doing this for a long time.  He has all the bells and whistles.  Whatever type of music your into, from beginner on up, he has a lot to offer.  Thank you Glen.

I have taken guitar lessons from Glen for around four years, and I am thoroughly satisfied with what he has provided me. Glen’s style of teaching isn’t out of the book or one dimensional what so ever. He incorporates what you need to learn, while letting you choose what you want to learn, allowing you to keep constant interest in learning the instrument. Glen also pushes the student to explore different musical realms, allowing their musical mind to grow beyond what it would usually gravitate towards. Besides his vast musical knowledge, he is a very approachable guy, very easy to talk to, and he has a great sense of humor, which for me was great and made the lessons even more fun. I couldn’t imagine having had someone else guide me on my musical journey. Glen opened my mind and helped me look at things differently. He is a phenomenal teacher, and I am extremely happy that he is my instructor.

Glen West offers a professional, but friendly atmosphere in his lessons and is dedicated to help individuals meet their goals.  Many guitar instructors waste their student’s time with meaningless exercises in an attempt to collect a paycheck and never teach the student how to create music on their own.  Mr. West, however, teaches his students how to become independent with their instrument, ensuring that his students meet the level of playing they wish to achieve.  His lessons consist of comprehensible exercises which challenge and motivate the individual.  I definitely enjoyed his lessons and was amazed at Glen’s understanding of the guitar.  Glen West at A2G Sharp Guitar is everything you could want in a guitar teacher.  He is extremely motivating and knowledgeable and I highly recommend his lessons.  He will not waste your time.

Glen West is simply put, one of the best teachers there is. Not only does he have an amazing talent as a guitarist, but he has the rare talent of a true teacher and knows how to motivate and inspire. I have played bass for 25 years and when I started taking lessons with Glen he was able to understand my perspective and help me learn to see things in an entirely new light. Regardless of your skill level and experience, Glen will help you get the most out of yourself.

Who says you can't teach an old dog new tricks?  Glen has a wonderful system for keeping me motivated to do the practice and having fun playing along the way.  The one on one instruction from Glen is focused to meet my goals and not the goals of someone else.  Over the years I used several books, software and online sites, needless to say all those were not taking me anywhere.  I highly recommend Glen West as an instructor for learning what you want to learn to do with your guitar!

Glen West, thank you for the last 8 months of endless knowledge on the guitar. If you want to learn to play the guitar on any level this man has the answers to the limitless fretboard called the guitar. Thank you for all you have taught me. I am thankful for the chance to study with you. I look forward to every lesson. Thank you.

The name says "guitar instruction" but it's really more than that. Glen helps people become musicians, not just guitar players. While it's great to have the technique to play something flawlessly, it's infinitely better to understand the music well enough to improvise rhythmically or solo in various styles. And isn't that why you take up an instrument in the first place: To make music that you like, not just copy someone else's?
