Singing · In home
I started out taking Piano lessons with Cheryl and later switched to voice lessons. My brother and I took lessons with her for about 8 or so years and we love her! I learned a lot about harmonizing, pitch and my singing improved a lot. Highly recommend.

I took piano lessons with Cheryl for a month and learned so much in a short amount of time! She customized lessons to my skill level and interest in songwriting and assigned me songs to learn that were both challenging and fun!

Ben is a very intuitive teacher. He quickly figures out how his students learn, then tailors his teaching approach. I've learned from Ben through observation and his tips are spot on. Above all, he is a fun and inspirational gentleman to be around!

But love and play most styles of music. i.e., Rock, Jazz, Blues, Folk, Celtic, and others. I'm very interested in seeing what I can do to help you in your goals! *** Lesson Details *** Teaching is a passion for me, and I truly appreciate each and every student.

Danny is an excellent teacher. He is patient, encouraging, and a lot of fun. He takes the time to plan lessons around the songs and styles that I'm interested in. He is knowledgeable and passionate about music, and the way he explains basic music theory has helped me understand it so much more than I thought I would. Learning a new instrument with Danny has been stress-free and inspiring. I highly recommend him!
