"Billy and Jeff are great instructors. I've learned a ton in the 6 months I've been here, and there's plenty of opportunity to learn more, whether it's weekly improv / rock band classes, or performing live at Dawson's. Outside of class, there has been a trip to Martin Guitar Factory in PA, and an upcoming trip to Wolf Trap."
