    Thought you might really enjoy this; tremendous stuff.

    The student is none other than Eric Friedman!

    But what a teacher!

    Wonderful stuff indeed! I love the courtesy with which Heifetz treats these obviously very talented students. Great stuff. I cannot imagine taking a class with a virtuoso, but these students being fledgling virtuosi seem in their element. Heifetz is a generous soul and excellent teacher.

    Hope you've been doing well and thanks for thinking of me as a matey! You should see the tremendous progress my son has had in his guitar playing.

    What style is he learning on guitar, how old is he? How long has he been taking lessons?

    Paolo takes lessons privately since mid 2010. He is learning a broad range of genres, but he prefers heavy metal above all. Paolo has had very successful gigs with his band. Now he is beginning to take a deep interest in jazz guitar.

    Paolo makes steady progress. I am sure glad he is expanding his musical universe.
