Colin is a FANTASTIC teacher!! He has been teaching me and my 10 year old son for about a year now. My son just played Pipeline in his school talent show and rocked it. I highly recommend Colin he inspires you and builds confidence quickly and he himself is a very talented musician!!

Colin is an amazing musician, but an even more amazing person, teacher, and mentor.
I've have learned so much about music and performance from him, as well as a great deal about recording and composition too. He's helped me so much in both my understanding of music and how to play!  We've worked both in person and also over Skype, and both experiences are incredibly worthwhile.

Colin Gailey is by far one of the most experienced, knowledgeable, talented and kind hearted musicians I have ever known and worked with. Having him as an instructor is a gift to any and all! I HIGHLY recommend Music To You!
