"I enjoyed every minute of studying DYNAMIC EAR TRAINING FOR GUITARISTS with Richard Boukas.

He gave me great insights into my Ear Training goals and helped me relate them to the guitar. I gained an infinite number of musical ideas that I hope to explore for years to come. I truly appreciate his generosity in sharing his knowledge."

"Ear Training-- an essential skill that every musician wants but rarely makes consistent time for.

Richard Boukas's Workshops provide a fun, highly educational and motivating environment to gain proficiency in these areas. His musical knowledge is broad and deep, effortlessly and clearly conveying his subject matter and enormous passion for music and teaching.
Hear more, play better. Highly recommended."

"I've played guitar for more than twenty years and always felt a creative and aural disconnect with the instrument. After taking Richard Boukas's Dynamic Ear Training for Guitarists course, everything suddenly merged- hearing music on a deeper level, creativity, technique, theory and untapped vocal abilities. Finally now I feel like a more complete musician, ready to take on the next level of all these different but related areas."
