Ed's students say:
“Everyone loves jamming with Ed! He promotes a welcoming and friendly atmosphere where players can relax and have fun making music together. Ed is a helpful mentor who loves to share his enthusiasm for music with others.”
“I have found Ed to be a friendly, supportive, and talented jam partner.”
“When I was struggling to understand key and chord transposing, Ed took the time to explain to me how it worked in a friendly and understandable way, without making me feel like a musical idiot.”
