    Not relating to Watt, but I know that a couple of fellow Spokanites are on this forum--this is for them. Any recommendations for good teachers in Spokane? Looking to really up my game & since I've never had anything remotely like a lesson & thought it might be a good idea.

    I only can suggest that you DON'T use Bruce Penell. I don't know of any good teachers here in town, sorry. I do know that Rock City has a guy who teaches there, you might check him out. Talk to Bob, or Charlie there.

    Thanks for the info. Where does Bruce operate out of, so I know where not to call. Rock City was on the top of my list since they're always helpful.
    Thanks again,

    I think he is mainly at the sfcc, they have a good program out there, but he was not helpful.

    Rick,

    I'm not sure if they're good instructors or not, but I've met some of the guys that teach at Learn to Burn, and they seem like good guys. That school has been there awhile (right in the middle of the Division St. hill), so maybe they're doing something right.

    I would try the Rock City guy first.

    Thanks guys. I'll try Rock City first, but won't rule out Learn to Burn.

  8. You seem rather pushy for this Rock City guy, is that by chance you?

    Nope, not me. The guys at Rock City have always treated me good. I also have heard good things about Learn to Burn. I just like the fellows over at Rock City.
