"I've learned more from Fiona in the past six months than I have from years of lessons with other teachers. Unlike most guitar instructors, she will teach you exactly what you want and need to, rather than what caters to her taste. If you want to be a great player you need the right teacher, and Fiona's that."
"By following Fiona's instructions and practicing diligently, I was playing Van Halen and Metallica songs note for note within a year of my first lesson (solos included). I was 13 years old at the time and had no prior musical experience. I would highly recommend her to anyone that's serious about playing the guitar."
"Learning to play guitar had been on my bucket list for decades. After retiring, I finally had the time to pursue my dream, but was concerned I may be too old to learn. However, even at the ripe old age of 73, Fiona quickly whipped me into shape, and I'll be eternally grateful for it!"
"I'm the working single mother of a darling son with a not so darling dose of attention deficit hyperactivity disorder. Fiona, bless her heart, has been teaching him guitar since the age of seven; proof that she has the patience of a saint. Nearly a decade later Fiona's still able to keep him focused for an hour long lesson, which is no small feat. We look forward to her visits every week."
"I've been taking private guitar lessons with Fiona Barton for 5 years. Classical guitar is my passion, so I applied to the John J. Cali School of Music at Montclair State University. Fiona prepared me to pass the audition with ease, which aside from guitar playing also included music theory and music reading tests. Based off of my performance that day, I received a scholarship covering most of the cost of my tuition. Simply put, she is fantastic. Fiona has a refreshing, unorthodox approach to teaching that gets real results. I would recommend her to any aspiring musician."
"Fiona has been my guitar teacher since I was a teeny 11 year old brat. For close to 7 years I’ve considered her not just a teacher, but also a friend. She even attended my birthday parties when I was a kid. What a good sport, right? If it hadn't been for her I never would have survived jazz band or started my own rock band, so stop what you're doing and schedule a lesson. You won't regret it."
"Prior to meeting Fiona I had taken lessons with two other teachers and had little to show for it. It took a few months for me to pull the trigger and give her a call, but it was well worth the wait. Aside from being a rock solid guitarist, she’s a great teacher. Even with the little amount of time I have available to practice, my playing has improved greatly thanks to Fiona."
