About Carol

I've sung most of my life. I've been teaching since 1991. I listen to a lot of different singers but my real passion is jazz, Brazilian music and blues. I've performed in the US as well as England and Scotland. I also have recorded 2 Cd's.

I teach many different styles of music and work with beginners to advanced. Both of my teaching studios are equipped with a P.A. system so that students can also work on their performance skills.

What's the first lesson like? When I first meet a new student I ask about what experience they've had singing. Even beginners sing in the shower or along with their favorite CD's.

Finding out what kind of music the student listens to and wants to sing is also a big part of the first lesson. I find that it is ...

Just before I met Carol for my first singing lesson, I expected to feel embarrassed to sing in front of her. I was quite nervous, actually. But Carol's professional yet fun, laid back manner disintegrated all my trepidation and I left giddy and excited for the next lesson. She is a very encouraging and supportive instructor, and I feel so lucky to have found her!

Very pleased with this experience.

I'm taking these classes mainly for breath and voice control for public speaking, but am delighted to be learning so much about the singing voice and how to improve it, also.

Carol is very knowledgeable, patient, encouraging and professional. I'm entering my second month and am very pleased with the progress, and feel I'm acquiring a life skill that is helping me beyond my original expectation.

Gary is a very talented drummer. He has performed with my band, The Flounders for over seven years. From local venues, private parties and corporate events, he always professional and provides the coolest grooves. I have heard him play with other bands/styles and I am amazed by his versatility.

I've admired Gary's drumming for years. I've heard him play jazz, Latin, and uncategorizable (my favorite) kind of music. It's always sounded advanced and knowledgeable but at the same time "musical" if you know what I mean. I've heard virtuoso play highly sophisticated. complicated, impressive stuff that just didn't sound "musical". Gary never falls prey to that problem. I'd hire him for my band except I'm a drummer myself. Even though I've been playing for many years I knew there was much to learn from Gary so I signed up for a lesson. I was not disappointed. He gave me some great pointers and perspective. If you're looking for a lesson with a great sounding, knowledgeable drummer give Gary a shot. Plus he's one hell-of-a nice guy!

For over 40 years I've seen Gary in many different music situations, many styles played with the best musicians around, and because of the musicians he's played with he knows the styles with depth and knowledge.

He's been a bandleader, sideman, produced music, session man, teacher.....and having run a drum shop knows the "sonic" side of drumming which is crucial, because having a great sound is half the battle and gives drummers the advantage.

I guess my only criticism is he's not charging enough, but that's not a bad thing

About Ruben

Over the course of my musical career, I have had the opportunity to learn from many musicians. From University Professors to Street Corner Musicians, I have gathered much knowledge on how to play music. Applying that knowledge to my guitar playing has opened up many doors of opportunity and has made my life very interesting. One of my talents is to take complicated ideas and convey them in easy to understand ideas for my students. I now wish to share all my knowledge and experiences with you to enjoy a life of music.
Students of mine have been able to create their own music to record and perform. Ensembles that I have directed have performed at many local venues. I have also invited students to join me at my performances to help them become more confident in their playing.

I have ...

Excellent

Ruben has been an excellent instructor. Very patient and very knowledgeable. He is also flexible in that he allows me to "dabble" in various areas of instruction. He provides excellent suggestions that can be used outside of the class room environment. So far all suggestions have been very helpful in advancing my progress. I highly recommend!

Great Teacher, Great Learning Environment

I've dabbled and noodled around playing guitar for about 10 years but never took it seriously. I still don't want to take it seriously but Ruben is helping me get over some learning humps that have always overwhelmed me in the past. Patient and very knowledgeable which is suiting my learning style very well. I would highly recommend.

I am an adult student who returned to piano after 25 years. I had only taken lessons for 5 years originally, so after all the years in between, I was essentially starting over. Judi has been great, she tailors my lessons to my pace and keeps me moving for continual learning. After a few months of lessons I feel very comfortable and I'm surprised at my progress, Judi is very musically talented and shares her talent and knowledge in a professional and friendly manner. I really enjoy my lesson time, my favorite moments are when Judi sits on the bench with me for duets, so fun!

Sharon is an excellent instructor that can effectively take someone with absolutely zero formal knowledge of music or singing and make a things understandable. I never thought I would be able to read sheet music and now I actually understand what i'm looking at. It's a much broader learning experience than I imagined which is a very good thing. Sharon teaches you the little parts that eventually come together to become a big part of your vocal ability. I'm glad I was able to find someone with this level of in-depth knowledge of music and vocals, it's making for a great learning experience.
