About Jaxon

I am a graduate of ASU's guitar program, where I got my Master's Degree in Music- emphasis in Guitar Performance. I have been playing the guitar for 19 years and teaching for 10. My main style is classical, and due to the technical training I have had since I was very young, it has been very easy for me to learn and master other styles such as Rock, Jazz, Blues, Pop, Country, and other styles of guitar. I have a passion for performing and have played hundreds of solo and ensemble concerts. As a classical performer I was the Oregon State champion in their guitar competition for both 2005 and 2006 and won 4th prize at the Sierra Nevada International Classical Guitar Competition 2014. I have played concerts all over the United States as well as in Spain and Mexico. As a performer of ...

What I've seen from Jaxon after a few lessons is that he is very attentive to detail and takes his craft seriously. He focuses on fundamentals and watches your technique carefully and makes sure to correct them when he sees you drift back into bad habits. He is very personable and flexible as well. I would highly recommend without reservations.

It goes without saying that Jaxon is an outstanding teacher - I think that anyone who studies with him would agree. Both Jaxon's verbal instruction and his playing demonstrations are clear and well articulated. His ability to select interesting repertoire seems limitless, for even an advanced student such as myself. He will guide you with techniques and tips while also keeping in consideration your own interests and goals.

I cannot say enough great things about Ginni. I started having an interest in piano back in 2008 and stumbled across her profile on the take lessons website. I saw her for a few months and got really busy with my career that I had to take some time off. A few months back I remembered how much I loved taking lessons with her so now I am back to seeing her. The wonderful things about Ginni is that she is very encouraging, she can adapt to any teaching style(sometimes I can be a bit ADD and she tries different ways of teaching until she finds a way in which I am able to retain the information) she is very accommodating, and she makes learning enjoyable which is sometimes difficult to find with instructors. We laugh a lot when i'm in my lessons :) (I like to call the rest symbol a lightning bolt) if you are looking for a great teacher that you can connect with and makes you love learning piano then Ginni is the teacher for you! Happy learning!

Starting music lessons so late in life, my first piano lesson with Ginni was wonderful. She made me feel very relaxed and confident. Her abilities as an instructor are gentle but firm. Thank you Ginni. I am looking forward to many more lessons.
Zachary W. Mesa, AZ

About Zachary

I am a trained jazz pianist but I love many different styles of music. I grew up in the Portland, OR area, did my undergrad studies in Utah, and recently moved to Arizona to begin my masters degree at ASU. I have played in many different types of bands as well as played solo piano professionally. Whatever type of music you enjoy, I hope to be able to help you learn to play it. *** Lesson Details *** I teach students of all levels. Whatever experience you have, we will work with. I believe that it is important to learn how to play by ear as well as read written music. Understanding both approaches, you will be able to play almost any kind of music in a solo as well as a group setting. Depending on your experience, I can find suitable projects that will help you to develop your skills. ...

When I went looking for a piano teacher, I was looking for someone who wasn't too rigid so I'd have the flexibility to work on the type of music I enjoy listening to. I mean...who wants to play songs they don't like in the first place?! Zach is a great listener, is very technical, and can work with a student in a way that best suits their goals. He is very pragmatic, and as an adult student this is very important. I've learned a lot more than I expected at this point.

About Brian

After graduating Magna Cum Laude with a Bachelor's Degree in Music Performance (Violin) from the artistically vibrant and widely recognized music program at Central Washington University, I traveled to the nationally recognized Herberger Institute for Design and the Arts at Arizona State University where I am currently in my 2nd year of my Master's Degree in Music. I have been teaching both in-home and in a professional capacity since 2005. Having personally prepared many auditions, I have both experiential and technical advice to offer intermediate to advanced players. Music theory and its applications is another one of my passions and I am always excited to share this knowledge in all instrumental lessons, which include both violin and viola. Lessons through this website will be held at

Brian is a wonderful teacher! This was my first string instrument and he has done a great job teaching me all the fundamentals. Everything I need to know down to how to hold the violin. He is very articulate while teaching and extremely encouraging when I do something wrong. I am still only beginning but I can already see his expertise. I am excited to advance further and learn everything he has to offer.

About Justin

My name is Justin Covert and I can't wait to explore the percussive arts with you! I've been teaching private drum lessons since 2008 and have loved helping my students become world championship finalists, drumline section leaders, even professional drum set players and recording artists.

I am a current performer with "Street Drum Corps" which was named Percussion Ensemble of the year by Drum Magazine. I teach percussion at Coronado HS in Scottsdale, and perform drumset for numerous artists and bands locally. In 2007, I was the RMPA Snare Drum Champion and a WGI World Championships Finalist.

Bailey has been our son's guitar teacher for a couple years now. She is a very gifted professional with tons of patience! Our son, Anthony, can be a bit of a chatter box but when he starts to get off course in his lesson Bailey is great at getting him back on track. I wish I knew how she does it! Bailey makes learning fun. She's also kind, generous, encouraging, and obviously really cares for her students. She not only taught Anthony guitar but she also focused on teaching him music theory. Any student would be blessed to have her as a teacher.
Thank you Bailey.
