Lessons with me are like playing a video game that trains you to be good at music. Every exercise we do will generate a score, and you can practice between lessons in order to “beat your high score” during the next one. I've had tons of young students achieve college level proficiency across multiple domains, and can promise you that you will see a huge increase in your technique, music theory, and fretboard knowledge in a very short period of time using my simple and fun program.

Beyond that, one of my favorite things to do with my students is to teach them the concepts and techniques at the core of their favorite music and use that knowledge to help them write their own original songs.

I started taking guitar lessons from Morgan June of 2021. When I started I had a basic grasp of the guitar. After 4 months of lessons with Morgan my playing became exponentially better. He was able to explain how everything works together in a fun and exciting way to where I always looked forward to my next lesson. I would recommend Morgan to anyone no matter what their music skill is!
Grant
Morgan has tremendously helped my guitar skills through weekly progress tracking. He is very easy to learn from and is a fun guy to jam with! Overall great instructor.
Amanda
I have always wanted to learn to play the piano but just never took the time to find a teacher. I tried self study and watching videos but it just wasn’t doing the trick. I’ve been getting lessons from Morgan for a while now and it has been AWESOME! He’s super passionate about music so any questions you ask gets him even more excited to teach! I went from not knowing ANYTHING about playing piano to being able to play a song that I have always wanted to learn to play! Morgan is able to integrate learning foundational piano playing with playing your favorite songs. I would HIGHLY recommend Morgan if you want to learn to play piano!

I've completed about 1 year of lessons with Carolyn, and my experience has been exceptional.

Carolyn is insightful and encouraging. She knows when to offer critical feedback and when to offer positive feedback based on her student's temperament. She also paces progress based on the student's aptitude, too.

I'd recommend Carolyn for any beginning string musician without any hesitation.

These Psychology lessons are mostly focused on how to communicate, build confidence, and reduce anxiety.
Many of the principles taught will focus on how to engage in healthy conversations and read social cues.
Psychology will back up principles taught.
Elementary and middle school psychology focuses on developmental stages of school- aged children, and what their patterns of behavior could indicate. Please send specific goals to the instructor before signing up for this course to make sure this is the right fit for you.
*Disclaimer*
Lessons and insight are based on studies conducted and reported, but please realize that there are many variables that contribute to a person’s psyche, and if conclusions of student’s goals are not reached, psychologist, counseling, or even psychiatric services are recommended.

Not sure what to say except just want to make sure everyone knows how great Michelle is. Am a total beginner and feel totally like fish out of water. All I have on my side is willingness. Am trusting Michelle will continue to provide the support and tools to learn how to speak and sing. Could not be more pleased and all though have only had 2 lessons so far, seems like she really goes above and beyond and that she does really care. Definitely definitely highly recommend."
