Kevin is a fantastic instructor!

I have been taking private lessons from Kevin for two years now as we'll as receiving instruction in Band for the last three years. Kevin not only is an incredible percussionist himself, but he has a knack for being able to convey ideas to students that they can understand. New and better approaches to teaching rhythm, personalized lesson planning to suit a student's needs, and a vast knowledge of music from years of professional experience are just a few things that Kevin brings to the table. If you're looking for a percussion instructor, I would highly recommend Kevin as your first choice!

About Mark

Dear Students and Parents,
I have been playing guitar for over 30 years. I played in various rock bands for fun growing up and then developed a passion for acoustic finger-style guitar playing by songwriters like James Taylor. While still in high school, I opened a concert for Livingston Taylor (James Taylor's™ brother). After high school I decided to pursue my passion for guitar in college and received my Bachelors degree in Classical Guitar Performance studying with Robert Guthrie at Southern Methodist University. I also love to write music so after graduating from SMU I went out to Los Angeles and worked in the film music industry at Warner Bros. Studios for many years. I am currently working at MakeMusic, Inc., a world leader in music technology whose mission is to develop ...

Jason S. Chaska, MN

About Jason

Music comes from our souls and is an incredibly passionate form of expression. When individuals perform for people, including a teacher, they put their confidence and abilities and imperfections out to be seen. That's why it is important for students to feel safe and confident in their instructor, something you will find in our teacher-student relationship.

Jason has been teaching acoustic, electric, and bass guitar for 8 years. Jason's passions lie in folk, blues, rock, and indie music, and he loves to share that passion with his students in an encouraging and patient environment. Communication is key in a learning environment to ensure that students are working and progressing toward their goals. He has given lessons to students from age 7 through 75, and ...

I refer to myself as Jason's mature student. I'm 71 and can't believe how much Jason is able to teach me. He is very patient and able to help correct my bad habits.
A great teacher.

My son has been taking lessons from Jason for about 9 months, and he LOVES Jason! He is awed by the level of talent Jason has and is inspired by the way Jason teaches him. Lately, Jason has also been working with our son on garage band and composition. We're really liking this also. Professional, flexible, talented - what more could you ask for?

Heather is a wonderful teacher. My daughter looks forward and enjoys seeing her each week. She is very knowledgeable, and makes it easy for a child to learn and understand the guitar. It has been so convenient having her come to the house.

Heather is very nice, cheerful and patient. I just decided to go with a much more experienced teacher that is charging much less but giving you much more, I am wishing Heather all the best she is really something.

About Matthew

Hi! My name is Matthew, and I have a great PASSION for MUSIC!

My heart, and mission, is to take your passion for music, and the music in your heart, and put it in your hands!

I've been playing acoustic guitar for 7 years, I've been leading worship at various places since I was 14, and I'm starting to produce my own music, and start a recording studio.

Right now you may be thinking: "I'll never be able to make my own music; I'm just not musical." If that's what you're thinking, I want you to STOP, because that is a lie. If you have a desire to learn, and are willing to practice even a few minutes a day, then the only thing keeping you from your dream, is the lie that you can't live it.

So what are you waiting for? Let me help ...

Hannah S. Lakeville, MN

About Hannah

My name is Hannah, a recent graduate of St. Olaf College with a Bachelor of Music in Violin Performance. As a child of two professional musicians, I have been around musical instruction and enterprise my whole life. I feel I bring a unique perspective and sense of genuine passion into my own performing as well as teaching. I believe a successful musician is one whose music causes people to feel. The emotions of human living provide the avenue for our connection with one another. Too often I fear musicians forget about this aspect of music – the ability to influence. While technique is important, especially in the formative years, I think it is vital to develop a conversation between facility and musicality. Through teaching, I desire to communicate these truths to people, hopefully ...
