Timothy

Tim is great, he is teaching my son so much, he loves going to his lessons and learns so much from Tim, he taught him how to read music and the different types of drums and the different sounds they make, He tells everyone he is taking drum lessons. Tim answers any questions we may have and knows the drums very well, he is also very flexible and outgoing, Tirstan has lots of fun and enjoys his lessons very much. I will recommend Tim to anyone who is looking for a drum instructor.

Tim is a great teacher. He introduced Teddy to the different types of drums and cymbals. He allowed Teddy to play the different drums so that he could hear that each drum has a different sound. He also showed him how could change the pitch of the drum. Teddy really enjoys his lessons.

Maja has infinite patience and makes the lessons fun. Her sweet puppy is the first to greet you when you walk into the studio and is obviously well trained since he doesn't howl when he's listening to my playing. :) We set some goals and targets and I know that I'll be playing the tunes that I want by Christmas. What do you think Maja, concert pianist by this time next year. LOL... or maybe just Twinkle, twinkle little star.

Katy has been giving piano lessons to my twin 5-year old daughters. They were nervous about starting lessons, but Katy put them at ease right away. She has a wonderful manner with young children. My daughters have progressed more quickly than I expected they would. They enjoy practicing on their own too, because they want to impress her! I am so thrilled that we found her.

Katy has worked wonders for my 11 year-old. Maia cannot wait for voice lessons with Katy each week. If you are thinking of an effective voice teacher who works well with children, you need look no further. Katy is extremely talented as a singer and teacher.
