About Justin

I understand that there are many desires a pupil can have about learning music, especially towards the practicality of the modern world and I hope to gear the student towards that. I have worked with children for almost a decade so I am comfortable with youth education. My experience with working with children is mostly with the Boy Scouts of America since I was 14. From teaching scouts about nature, to directing shooting ranges as an NRA Rifle Safety Officer, to eventually managing a camp. As a young adult who has just finished their music degree from collage and working to further my education, I can understand the process of learning a musical instrument and guide the student on a smoother path to their goals. *** Lesson Details *** When taking lessons with me, you can expect ...

Justin is a natural teacher!!

I had a great experience learning under Justin's guidance. He really took the time to learn how much understanding I had of my instrument before he started teaching, so he knew exactly what I needed more work on. I can see he definitely tailors lessons for each individual student's needs. He was patient and introduced new ways of learning that really helped me grasp the material. Although he sticks to a general lesson-plan for each session, he gave me plenty of freedom to play around and jam. I would recommend him to anybody, and have already referred him to some friends. If you're looking for a professional, yet fun and relaxed teacher, you've found him!

Lena is an awesome guitar instructor. She’s extremely knowledgeable and talented. I like that she allows me to go at my pace and is patient with my learning. She does a great job mixing music reading, theory, and learning songs I want to learn. It’s also wonderful that she sings and she incorporates that into her teaching so I learn to play with a vocalist. I believe any student can progress with her approach and have a lot of fun learning too.

Emily is an awesome piano teacher! She motivates yet does not intimidate. She helps lay a strong foundation in theory which will help the student as they grow and even play other instruments. She has been very accommodating with scheduling when a conflict occurs. The spring recital this year was a highlight for our family and a confidence booster for our child.

Emily has been wonderful for my 6 year old daughter who tends to fidget, play truant, and all around a hard to teach kid. Somehow she's able to keep her on task and improving in both playing and reading notes. She made lessons fun and engaging while keeping things on track of the lesson plans. Definitely, Emily made a difference for my child and we are grateful to her for being such a good teacher.

Emily relates very well with my 15 year old daughter (student). Emily is enthusiastic, patient, and displays a good sense of humor. You never feel that she is rushing the lesson. Instead she is committed to the teaching process. My daughter looks forward to her lessons. We consider Emily a keeper.

I have taken lessons from at least 5 different instructors over the course of the past 10 years. I would have to say that Alan is the best instructor I've ever taken lessons from. Not only is he a phenomenal drummer and teacher, but also a great person. I believe our friendship made the lessons that much more beneficial. I am always excited to attend lessons and eager to learn more. My drumming skills have improved immensely. From Latin, jazz, to rock, Alan has taught me how to play different genres. Consequently, he has helped me accomplish my goal in becoming a more versatile musician. I highly recommend Alan !

Professional, patient, and pleasant!

Alan has been my 15-year-old son's drum instructor for five years now, and in that time, my son has progressed from being a complete novice to drumming in a very decent teen band. With Alan, you get solid teaching skills, a pleasant personality, and great flexibility in arranging lessons. We love the fact that he provides instruction in our home--one less runaround for us! Alan is a musician who knows how to teach and inspire, and we recommend him without reservation.

Excellent instructor

I've been studying with Alan for more than a year. He is an excellent, reliable teacher and an outstanding drummer. His lessons are clear and concise. His communication skills are excellent. Also, I'm very happy with the syllabus he has put together for me, as we use a variety of instruction books. I feel like there's a definite path towards improvement. You won't be disappointed if Alan is your teacher...
