By far the best teacher around. I don't think that I would've stuck with it if hadn't been for him. He places lots of emphasis on the basics which lays the groundwork for future success. And like Mr. Holland, he stresses that playing music should be fun. He knows when to push and when to hold back. An excellent teacher, I would highly recommend him to any one interested in learning to play guitar.

Ronnie Castellano is the best! He has taken this "mature" person with absolutely no musical experience and is teaching her to play a very difficult instrument that she has always wanted to learn. He is patient, has a great sense of humor, listens to what you say and what music you want to learn. When he senses that you're not getting a concept, he tries one or many other different ways to get it across. Always generous with his time and his incredible knowledge of music. So happy to be one of his students :-)

My lessons always go well. They are always enjoyable and educational. I can't think of anything that could be better. I feel like I get more than my money's worth and that Mr. Castellano really cares about your learning.

Have been taking adult guitar lessons with Ronnie for over a year, and having a wonderful time! Need to practice more, but Ronnie is incredibly patient and understanding of an adult's work schedule. Have already recommended him to friends, and will continue to do so!
I grew up down the road from Mr. Ronnie and had the privilege of watching, listening and learning many things about blues and jazz from this gentleman and his very talented sons. And, the jam sessions were always awesome! Highly recommended!
Ronnie Castellano was my first guitar teacher and inspired me to always have fun with the guitar. After over 20 years with the instrument, I still do!!"Thanks so much Dad,
I love taking guitar lessons from Mr. Ronnie. He has helped me a lot with my playing. Anybody who wants to learn to play the guitar should call Mr. Ronnie.
Great teacher! Very patient and encouraging.
It has been a pleasure to learn how to play a guitar. I would have never thought I would be that person who could. Thanks so much Ronnie. You are an amazing teacher. If I could learn , then any one can☺ thank you so much for giving me this opportunity to fulfil my long life dream.
I've been taking lessons from Ronnie for 8 months. I've gone from barely being able to hold a guitar to playing actual songs in church which was my goal from the beginning. My lessons have been fun and challenging. I'd highly recommend Ronnie to anyone who is serious about learning to play guitar. He's a great teacher!
Ronnie is a great teacher! He is motivating and patient. He knows a lot about music and can play any style.
