About Lane

Let's get straight to it, I truly love teaching. Helping others attain the pure satisfaction that comes from musical accomplishment is one of my greatest joys. I strive to create an atmosphere that makes students feel comfortable so they are able to learn in a healthy way. Music should be fun and not something one feels forced to do, right? My goal is to stimulate creativity and inspire a drive in students to be the best musician they can be.

I have taught a wide variety of students in terms of age and musical direction, and love working with you to find what you want to play. With my experience in areas such as, orchestral percussion to rock drumming, as well as winning scholarships and attending college, I am confident I can help you do whatever you want in music.

Excellent Teaching and Super Nice!

Greg is a fantastic music teacher! His skills on a myriad of instruments are quite impressive, and its very easy to see his passionate love of music. Learning from Greg is fluid and fun, as long as you are willing to push yourself (there is no Mary Had a Little Lamb here). Its wonderful that he helps you learn what you want to learn, and doesn't constrain you with a strict curriculum. I would recommend Greg to anyone who is looking for an effective and fun atmosphere.

TJ is a great teacher. I have learned allot in a short amount of time.
He caters the lesson to what I wish to learn while still making sure I learn to actually play not just learn the song. I have enjoyed learning from him and am still a student.
He does like coldplay but I will try not to hold that against him lol.

Great teaching approach

My goal was to be able to play songs around a campfire and TJ has been fantastic at tailoring our lessons to this goal. Every week I learn something a little new, but I also learn a song that is simple enough for me to play and which incorporates whatever new chord or technique he's introduced. I much prefer practicing actual songs vs. excercises and he always leaves me with a new song to play. He is also instantly likeable and lessons feel more like hanging out with a friend than a teacher. I would highly recommend him as a guitar teacher.

Fun and inspiring teacher!

If you are looking for a fun, optimistic, and talented teacher TJ is your guy. Every time we get together to make music TJ is full of life and always has a smile on his face. His knowledge about music theory and history is amazing and he can back up that knowledge when he picks up any instrument whether it be guitar, piano, bass, or even mandolin. The great thing about TJ is he inspires you to want to get better at whatever it is you want to get better at. He is patient and understands everyone learns in different ways and at different paces. He can get along with anyone of any age. I highly recommend TJ as your teacher no matter what level you are at.

About Steve

When I was growing up I thought music was like magic and that only special people with super-human powers could play. I would think to myself, "How are they doing that? I would never be able to play music in a million years!" It wasn't until I was 14 I discovered guitar magazines and a method of reading called guitar tablature that I realized anybody can learn guitar! With determination, patience, and practice I learned as many songs and techniques from my heroes (The Beatles, Jimi Hendrix, Led Zeppelin) as I could. I realized there is so much to learn about music that I could learn something new everyday. This still holds true to this day. I keep digging to find that magic place to which music can take you. It is my goal as a musician and a teacher to help other aspiring ...

Steve has been great so far. His skills are up-to-snuff and his manner is perfect for a young child with a wild imagination. But more importantly, Steve communicates very well and is on time. This may seem like small stuff but it's uncommon in the private music instruction realm.

Steve has been a great piano teacher. He has an easy going personality and is very calm and relaxed. He assessed what I knew immediately and where I needed work and designed his style around my needs. He has given me self confidence and showed me how to make piano playing fun!

Our son really enjoyed taking guitar lessons from Travis. Travis's teaching style was effective and appropriate for the level our son was at and Travis was able to keep him interested and eager to learn more. Socially, our son connected with Travis, which, if there isn't that trust and relationship building happening, the learning won't happen. Thank you Travis for building a strong guitar (and music) foundation for our son! We highly recommend you!

My son, 11 years old, was a complete beginner at guitar and reading music. Travis emphasized learning music, which is great, because even if a child decides to switch instruments, he will have that knowledge to help him along. Travis has a great way of relating to young musicians, exhibiting patience and high expectations, which helps motivate his students to practice. My son really enjoyed his lessons. He made fairly quick progress and has developed a confidence that will keep him playing and growing musically. Thanks to Travis for starting him off on the right foot. We highly recommend Travis as a music teacher.

Travis is both a good teacher and a good person. I took lessons for a while from him on jazz guitar and I wanted to just give up a number of times (jazz is hard!), but he helped me get through those ruts. It's very difficult to find that happy-medium between having fun and learning, but Travis does it very well. I learned a great deal from him and had a number of lessons that dragged on a little bit just because we were having fun.
