Testimonials

"Thanks to guitar lessons with Jean I've made tremendous progress in the few months I've been taking lessons and in that time I've improved more than in the entire two years I taught myself. Jean has years of experience, dedication to your improvement and (the most important quality in a teacher) patience."

"Jean Welles is simply an outstanding guitarist. Each Saturday beginning at 12:30 P.M. to 1:30 P.M. a group of students, including myself, eagerly await her arrival to teach us. She is a remarkable teacher, and it is simply amazing to see her fingers glide from one string of the guitar to another with such ease and artistry. I strongly recommend Jean Welles as a master of the strings of a guitar."
- Sylvester T. Gillespie, Senior Pastor of Grace United Methodist Church

"They say "them that can do and them that can't teach." Nothing could be farther from the truth when it comes to Jean Welles. Jean is both an excellent performer AND a gifted teacher. As a performer, Jean communicates with instrument and song. As a teacher, she communicates with encouragement and patience. Jean's ability to communicate clearly and provide a supportive environment helped me learn to play with confidence. After just a year and a half of lessons with Jean, I was asked to be the Worship Leader for my church!"

"Jean Welles is not just a good friend but a great Maestro. I have not found a piece of music that she can't instruct on or any musical theory question that she has not been able to answer. She not only has a Master's degree but over 30 years experience of instructing classical/pop guitar."

"Guitar was never an instrument I imagined playing, but I woke up one day feeling compelled to learn. I've been lucky to find Jean because her convenient schedule matches my lifestyle and her teaching method allows me to learn the songs I love in a fun, progressive and comfortable environment. I look forward to playing guitar and singing along with Jean each week"

"I find I gain from Jean's teaching not only from the good technique I'm learning, but also from having the freedom to play the worship music I feel led to play. Many times I just wake up in the morning and start praising. My worship time with the Lord gives me such strength for the day."
