I took lessons for around 8 months at a store where kids were crying in the waiting room and everything ran like a factory. I wasted so much time not learning anything. My teacher was not very skilled and he seemed to miss every 3rd class (like clock-work). When I came to Creative Guitar it was so different. It was like attending a real school for bass guitar. I've never looked back. Best lessons in Winnipeg period.
