Testimonial by Tom Condon
Gary is an extremly knowledgeable and versitile musician. He makes learning fun. He is not afraid to get into music theory or reading music if that is what the situation demands. He takes the student at their level of ability to play and encourages each student to achieve all they can.

Thanks to all of the professional teachers there, who give our kids, and adults (who are never too old to start learning a musical instrument), the “proper” tools and fundamentals each and every day. You inspire everyone who steps foot in your door, to pour out their creative energies and talents, which in turn, allows them the confidence to take it to the highest level. Thanks Easthill, my son loves it there!

Many thanks to Raymond Ruddy for teaching my nephewDavid Jongko the ways of the Force as a strong drummer at East Hill Guitar Instruction! The concert last night in downtown Pensacola at Vinyl Music Hall was WICKED! Here’s David playing drums w. his bandmates covering John Petrucci’s, “Jaws of Life”. The lead guitarist is only 14! These young musicians did a phenomenal job playing a very complicated piece of music.
