When Al was 10, he took his first lessons in piano, then later trumpet, guitar, drums and at 13 yrs old decided to stick with bass guitar. At 16, Al joined his first band and was hooked.

I've found that students have vastly different, ages, tastes, goals, and want to learn for different reasons. They also learn and develop in different ways and at different paces. That said, I use the first lesson to determine goals and a general plan ...

Had a really nice first lesson with Al. He is a good guy and a we had fun jamming out on a couple jazz standards and talking about scales. He has good knowledge of the instrument and i was happy to see that he played a 6string like myself. I enjoyed the lesson.

Mary is wonderfully patient and convivial. I'm pretty much a beginner at lessons, and she's found a way to explain to me technique exercises such that each week, my body understands more, and I feel progress. In responding to my singing, she has not been a perfection czar -- she zeroes in on the most important concern at the moment. While she's extremely knowledgeable about and experienced in musical theater, she can help singers with pop as well. I'm enjoying our lessons. She has boosted my confidence while it's quite evident how much I should improve. Her pricing is also reasonable -- no small thing.
