Wellington guitar teacher Dieter Burmester.
It goes without saying that well before most musicians end up in your ears, there's been a considerable amount of time and patience dedicated to learning the craft - not just their own, but the time and patience of those people willing to pass on their knowledge and encouragement to the next generation of musicians.
