Students

“My playing has amplified 10 fold in a short period of time. Everyone I jam with has noticed a change in my playing. I now find myself full of ideas for soloing, jamming, and song writing. I feel that Jeff’s unique teaching style is better than other local teachers. I’m glad I found out about his lesson studio”

Dan OuimetteStudent - Auburn, NY

“I came to Jeff’s studio with many years of experience but had hit a wall. It’s amazing how much my playing has improved in the time that I started working with Jeff. I’m playing solos I never thought I would be able to play and even writing songs utilizing my knowledge of music theory. Jeff provides a comfortable learning environment suitable for players of all abilities.”

John GagneStudent – Syracuse, NY

“Jeff teaches guitar to my son Graeme. Jeff does a terrific job with him and is very patient and easy going. One of the great things is that Graeme is able to choose the songs that he likes to listen to and is interested in learning to play. That certainly makes practice time much more fun and productive. I would highly recommend Jeff to anyone interested in starting guitar or furthering their existing talent!”

LindaParent – Skaneateles, NY

“My playing has had great improvement because Jeff is my teacher. He has me learning how to play things I had no idea I could do. I have had a few different teachers and none of them have the style of teaching that Jeff has. He not only teaches you how to play something but he explains why you do it that way so you can relate to things in your own terms and at your own speed. I highly recommend Jeff as a teacher.”

Dave WestmillerStudent – Auburn, NY

“Jeff has incredible knowledge of guitar and music in general. He has helped me achieve great progress with my playing! The opportunities that The Way Of Guitar provide are second to none!”

Nick SbelgioStudent - Auburn, NY

“I would like to highly recommend Jeff Wiggins as a teacher at any level of guitar playing. He has been a very good teacher and I have never asked him a theory or technique question he has not been able to answer. He has always been prepared and on time for the two years I have taken lessons. He teaches with kindness and praise. I am honored to be his student and now a friend.”

Douglas Powell Student - Skaneateles, NY

“Jeff is a fantastic teacher as well as a seasoned musician. He can teach you everything from the technical details of music itself to its real life applications. I’ve been playing for 20 years but in the last year taking lessons with Jeff I’ve found a new confidence that comes from understanding music theory, thanks Jeff!!!”

Tim ElyStudent – Jordan Elbridge, NY

“Being a self-taught guitar player, I struggled with songwriting and really felt limited in my ability to connect with other musicians musically. Working with Jeff I was able to sharpen my skills and take my guitar playing to a new level. Utilizing these skills enabled me to join a local band, record albums in the studio, make music videos, tour, and even play several dates on Vans Warped Tour! If your feeling stagnant with your abilities as a guitar player, Jeff can help guide you along your journey. ”

“Jeff Wiggins has been one of our Guitar instructors for some of our Community Education courses here at the college. I have found him to be punctual, easy to work with, devoted to teaching at student’s personal levels and has helped to give them a good working knowledge of the instrument. His evaluations from students have been very positive! On a related side note, I am also a professional musician and have found Jeff’s outlines and information handouts given to students to be timely and top notch. He’s not only a good entertainer, but he also knows his instrument and is a great teacher.”
