She is an amazing teacher and you should have her as your instructor she taught me all I know about classical piano so I thank her for that.

I had a great first lesson with Jessica. The lesson took place in a comfortable studio in her house. We discussed my goals and then reviewed where I am currently. She paid carefully attention to my body position with the bow and had several great suggestions on exercises to improve it. I'm already looking forward to the next lesson.

My students will have the opportunity to learn music theory and perform their favorite songs from any genre in my lessons. Throughout my 27 years of playing the guitar and 17 years of teaching it, I have learned that patience and practice are what defines a great guitarist. During my lessons, the student will not be rushed, and they will not feel uncomfortable nor nervous in my setting. Overall, their time will be used effectively when they are with me. Understanding is one aspect, but practice completes the process. A student has to practice at home as well. They will be provided practice sheets or online exercises to help them achieve that effectively.

Our son loves his Drum lessons.

Benk is very flexible, affordable and our son took to him very well. He even records what he has learned each week so we both can keep track of his progress. He is much more affordable then other drum teachers or studio's in the area, and even will come to your home.
If you are looking for a GREAT Teacher you should take some time to talk to Benk.
