Ryan is so great with my 6 yr old son. He is very patient with him, and even though we are having our son learn piano for now, his ultimate goal is to learn the guitar. With Ryan knowing this about our son, he also allows him to strum the guitar every so often so that it reminds him how his piano lessons will ultimately pay off in the end. Ryan is super great with kids! I highly recommend him to anyone.

Ryan is an amazing Piano teacher! My son is 7 and requires a lot of patience and redirection, and Ryan is very good at keeping him on track. We had to switch teachers after the previous one was not a good fit for my son's strong personality. I highly recommend Ryan if your child is easily distracted and strong willed. :)

Gaily has helped me so much

Gaily is an amazing violinist. She is very flexible and tells me what I need to know in order to improve. When I get a little bored with my practice drills, we work on fun music that I love to play.

I have noticed a huge difference in my playing since taking lessons from her. I play more in tune and with more confidence. You should definitely take lessons from Gaily.

About Zachary

Hello, I'm Zach and I am currently going to college for Audio Engineering. I have been playing guitar and bass guitar for 7 years. I have been in 3 bands, and have played multiple large shows. I currently work for a production company, doing lights and sound and have more recently gotten to set up at The Shrine Auditorium and the At@t center. I can complete the rubix cube in 15 seconds. I am good with kids and adults and believe patience is a major key to teaching any skill set.

Having an Awesome time taking lessons with Zach

I got solicited into making this review after our most recent lesson. I would be lying though if I said I hadn't enjoyed the lessons we have been taking. I know I can be rather impatient during our lessons, I like to try and play ahead, but Zach is good at reeling me back in and keeping me focused on the task at hand. He's really friendly and outgoing and I'm glad he's my teacher!

Great teacher!

Zachary has been a great teacher thus far! I started off with no knowledge of guitar and in two months I'm already feeling comfortable enough to show off my new skills to my friends and family. He is very friendly and patient, and moves along at whatever pace is right for you. The homework he gives to work on between sessions is really helpful, so I don't feel lost when I'm on my own. I will definitely recommend him to everyone!
Dusty S. McKinney, TX

About Dusty

I teaches ages three and up. If your looking for quality violin lessons by a local violin teacher in Mckinney. My curriculum is based on the Suzuki method which is a wonderful method for learning music. It is just like learning a new language through instant immersion. I am a registered violin teacher with the Suzuki Association of the Americas. I offer both group and private lessons for ages three through adult. Most lessons are done in my home studio but I do offer lessons in your own home depending on the area.
Benefits to learning music with me.
My students get to participate in recitals at least twice a year. I offer weekly private and group lessons, important for encouragement and practice. Training in music appreciation and theory is intuitively absorbed in every lesson.
