Patient and knowledgeable

John has been teaching my 9 year old daughter for several months now and I am extremely impressed with his knowledge and patience. My daughter looks forward to her lessons and practicing comes much easier and regular with John's laid back approach. I highly recommend John to anyone looking to take any level of guitar lessons.

About Cory

I grew up around Atlanta, GA and started playing piano when I was around 7 years old and bass when I was 11. Most of my education has been on the upright bass. I've studied classical bass performance at major music schools on the east coast and in the midwest. I've studied and worked with musicians from many of the great orchestras around the world. I enjoy working with students who are just coming to the bass or piano for the first time and getting them started with music in a rewarding way as well as more advanced students that need finer musical direction or audition coaching. *** Lesson Details *** I try to keep a relaxed environment while still being motivating and inspiring. I tailor lessons around what the individual student's goals are. There are materials that I like to ...

Great piano teacher

Cory was willing to take on the challenge of teaching my 4 year old daughter piano. She has now been in lessons for 1 year and is doing far better than I had imagined she would be doing at this point. She is already reading music, playing with both hands at the same time, and playing chords. Cory is very patient and kind and my daughter really enjoys taking lessons with him.

About Andy

Learn from an Internationally recognized musician! In 2008 I set two GUINNESS WORLD RECORDS for continuous guitar playing. I've performed at nearly every important music venue in Pittsburgh, notably: Heinz Hall, Heinz Field, the (old) Syria Mosque, The Electric Banana, Nick's Fat City, Graffiti, the Decade, the Hard Rock Café (Pittsburgh) and Stage AE. Since starting classical piano at age 5, trumpet, french horn and bass have all been primary instruments for at least several years, but the guitar has remained since age 10. I have developed an extensive and well-rounded set of sensibilities from performing jazz, blues and rock bands, bell choirs, marching bands, orchestras and musicals. Along with decades of experience in music performance, education, composition and production, I
