Dan is a fantastic instructor! I am a 27 year old whom had never touched a violin in my life before Dan. Now I own a violin, practice every week, and can read basic music sheets. He is very knowledgeable, patient, funny, and flexible. If you're looking to learn a new instrument while having a good time, look no further my friend. What are you waiting for?

Need someone special to teach you...?

Having never even held a violin in my life, I was apprehensive about trying this, but Danut is not only an expert at playing the violin and has several different methods to teach different individuals, but is also flexible in conforming to what is best for each student. And, most importantly (for me) is that he is v-e-r-y patient. LOL I may never be a concert violinist, but I am achieving my goal of learning to play and don't think this would be happening with anyone else. Thank you Danut!

An Encouraging Mentor

I took lessons with Danut for around two years and found him to be an excellent teacher. He is a knowledgable and encouraging instructor, and he never falters in reminding me to be patient and practice slowly.
My lessons with Danut have greatly increased my understanding of violin technique and practice. I improved greatly under his instruction and I would sincerely recommend him to violin students of any age or level.

Joe is a real professional talent and teacher. He is extremely patient and thorough with beginners like me. He takes time to cover basic guitar instrument basics, guitar music theory, scales, notes, etc. He is very flexible and will always go over lessons that require review with the student. Being new to instrument lessons I feel very comfortable with Joe's suggestions for me personally for areas that require practice. His videos are very informative as well as other documents regarding reading music, sessions, clefs, etc. His ability to relate his professional experiences into the lessons make the experience that much more valuable. I would highly recommend him as a guitar teacher.

We have been using Joe for guitar lessons for several years. My oldest Son started with Joe and also participated in his Rock Shop events. Although he is no longer taking lessons, he was playing the guitar last evening and I asked him what song he was playing? It was his original piece and it sounded excellent. The lessons with Joe really paid off. My youngest Son is currently taking lessons from Joe and we are confident that he too will be able to write and play his own music in the future. Joe is very flexible with our changing schedule and always follows up regarding our appointments. We highly recommend Joe to families with kids of all ages.

Classical Guitar
Great overview of the blues and classical history

I took lesson with Joe Mcintosh for a little over a year with the intent of leaning the basics of guitar playing and specifiaclly the blues. I got a lot of practical information and knowledge from Joe in various aspects of music and its history. I thoroughly enjoyed the lessons and the value it carried.

Joe is a very accomplished player and very patient with his students. I would highly recommend him for anyone with any skill level.

Laura is exactly the kind of teacher I was looking for. She customizes our lessons to my goals and current abilities. She has an amazing ability to make one feel good about progress at the same time she pushes you toward higher levels of performance. I thoroughly enjoy the lessons and practice I have. I highly recommend her for anyone who wants to explore piano or who wants to become a serious performer.

I took piano twice as a youth, and never really got it. I am doing it again at age 60, and am absolutely loving the approach that Laura uses. I find myself totally excited about the process and enthused that I will actually get it this time. I cannot recommend Laura highly enough.

Singing · In studio
I have done voice lessons twice before, first in Seattle, and second in Phoenix. Laura is BY FAR the best voice instructor of the three. I feel that I am finally "getting my voice". She is incredibly helpful in coaching me to get the proper tone, and to really learn the art of singing.

5 Ways To Prepare For Bluegrass Guitar Lessons
Starting bluegrass guitar lessons is fun and exciting, and odds are you'll have a lot to learn! Guitar teacher Samuel B. shares a few things you'll want to do before you get started... Bluegrass is as much a piece of American musical culture as jazz, blues, country, gospel and early rock and roll. All of these styles (save for jazz) are based on the same three chords: C, F and G7th. Three of these styles (blues, country and gospel) are based on a slow rhythm that allows the guitarist room to ex
How Often Should You Tune a Piano?
Just as you go to the doctor for check-ups from time to time, your piano needs maintenance and care throughout its life. You may notice, especially if you have a keen ear or a tendency to sing along with your practice, that your piano drops in pitch, particularly during the summer and winter months. This is because your piano is mostly made of wood, and your wooden soundboard will contract when the weather is drier -- or the heating is on! -- and cause the pitch of the strings to drop. While kn
