“An outstanding teacher and outstanding human being.
He opened the door wide for us to begin to grasp the underlying logical structure of music.
I’m taking away a lot to work on. My class with Ray was the highlight of each day.”

-Student, Guitar Tools Music Theory

“When people ask me how I got to suddenly play so much better, I say CHESNA.
When people ask how I got to suddenly play so much better, I say CHESNA! When they ask how this old guy got rhythm, I say CHESNA! When my wife asks me why I am playing 5 hours a day when I should be working, I say CHESNA. My confidence is high; I understand the instrument like never before and appreciate it’s awesome complexity; I play all over the fingerboard; I use inversions and build chords with ease; and I can figure our any song I want to because I know what chords simply have to be there. And all because of Chesna and his remarkable ability to know where your students are and what then need. (Theory!!!)
