I've had the unique experience of relearning how to become a musician after being away from it for several years. I joined the Air Force after high school and decided to pick up my Trombone to pursure my love of music once I got out. After a lot of time and effort I can happily say I now attend ASU where I play both Bass and tenor trombone. I have playing experience in both jazz and classical. I hope to share my experience and to provide an avenue to become a better musician.

From complete beginners to more intermediate players all lessons are personalized with your goals in mind. Let me share some of the joy I have found in these compact and portable instruments. Blues harp is where my strengths lie but I will happily work with you towards any style you please. If you are brand new to playing we will start with how to hold the instrument and how breathe into it. A little hint that some people don't realize up front is you play breathing in and out. We will work on some chugging and maybe get to isolating single notes. For more advanced students we can start with a new song that you have picked out or I can recommend one to you. Don't forget to pick out a decent harmonica. If its under $30 it is probably more of a toy than an instrument. Key of C recommended but I can work with what you have.

About Eric

(Drum lessons available from in-home only). Drums were my first love, and I always get a special kind of feeling when I play them. I look forward to sharing this feeling with my students, because it really is a lot of fun. Since I've played my whole life, I've spanned a lot of genres. I can teach you subtle finesse, relentless fury, and when to use what.

About Chaetan

Having played music for as long as I can remember (my father is an accomplished Jazz and Soul drummer), music has always been a key ingredient in my life. From playing the Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles theme on the drum set as a toddler, I have gone on to learn electric/classical/lap steel guitar, e

Great Beginner Guitar Lessons

I look forward to my weekly guitar lessons with Chaetan because he is a very knowledgeable, relaxed, and patient teacher. He tailors my lessons to meet my personal goals (learning those pinnacle acoustic songs). But as an exceptional instructor, he also guides me to meet goals he has for me as a student, such as learning to build chords on my own. The quality of his instruction has already increased my progress on the instrument. Overall, his talent and interest in music motivate me to practice so I am fortunate to have found Chaetan as my guitar teacher.

Excellent and Unique Teacher

Chaetan is a very friendly instructor who tailors his lessons to meet both the experience level and type of music a student is interested in. Chaetan has a lot of energy and makes the lessons fun. He appears to know every aspect of what he is teaching as well as plays other instruments. My daughter and I are both very happy with Chaetan.

First lesson for my 11 year old son with Christina. She has a very nice studio that my son was very comfortable in. She identified his level and sent him home with much more difficult pieces than his previous teachers. He has been practicing more because it is more difficult but also he seems to enjoy the challenge which she created for him. Thanks Christina, I am looking forward to watching him progress under your guidance.

Such a wonderful teacher ! Christina is kind and so patient with kids who are learning music. She is so smart and her knowledge in music is amazing. My daughter has progressed significantly in the last few months with Christina , at a much better pace than all her previous years learning with other tutors. She is training my daughter for ABRSM exam too . Christina has great communication skills and always lets us know the ways to help kids learn better. Her positivity and graceful presence has made my daughters passion for music increase immensely !! Great teacher !!! Highly recommended!!

"I believe it is difficult for people to take singing lessons because when you sing, you are a little vulnerable or even embarrassed at first. Paul makes the whole experience comfortable right from the start. I also have learned a few things within the first couple lessons already. I would recommend Paul to anyone who is thinking about learning more about their own voice and how to unlock your voice's potential."

All the utube lessons were useless for me. I realized this after 1 lesson with Ian. The frustration factor on utube was a waste of time for me. I am so happy I chose ian & this company.

"Ms Christine really is called to teach. I can say this, based on my experience with her. She has several unique teaching qualities. For example, she is an expert at breaking singing concepts down so that they are easliy understood and more importantly, easily applicable in practical terms. I have experienced a lot of 'a ha moments' with her. She has helped me understand the technicality of my voice better. I know how to use my voice better, how to control my breath, how to apply my breath in singing to get the sound I want, and so many other things."

His course is very well structured and planned, using classical training materials covering various basics and skills my son needs to learn and master to make step by step progresses. His teaching is efficient and effective, with beautiful demo, which is very important for his student, especially young ones. His practice assignments are also well designed and planned, with which my son has been making solid progress. He is also very easy to communicate and is nice and kind. With the well structured course, assignments, experienced and professional teaching, an excellent trumpet player himself, we are happy with Mr. Jerry V, and will keep him as long as possible."
