It is a great responsibility to give pieces of advice as well as to teach somebody, especially to teach kids. I tried to teach the children the way I would teach my own kids. I will be happy if, at least, one child decides it seriously to learn playing the guitar after my masterclass”, - said the leader of The Night Snipers.
