Lars is an awesome instructor. Very knowledgeable and also very articulate with his instructions. I highly recommend him. I am an absolute beginner and yet he was able to share so much in the very first lesson itself! He also makes learning fun.

I appreciate Marc’s knowledge, professionalism, and teaching methods. I also appreciate his practice of social distancing and mask wearing. He was thorough, good-humored, and patient during my lesson.
Roger H.
He is very good with me. I'm not a very good student. I have bad habits and I'm overly sensitive to criticism, yet he has not made me feel bad at all about my playing if you want to call it that. I also have a short attention span and can't read music fluently. But his patience is much appreciated, and each week get a little better at it all. I recommend him to those trying their best to sound a little better.

It was really good information and I had a lot of fun.

This summer, Ashley has been working with my daughter on Chicago choreography in preparation for auditions. She is a fabulous teacher and has been very easy to schedule and communicate with. My daughter enjoys her lessons with her. Highly recommend!

Miss Ashley is quickly and diligently finding the gaps in my 12yr old daughter's Tap/Jazz training! Ashley is intelligent, energetic, observant and is quick to clarify what she means verbally. She can superbly demonstrate in minute details the technique of any movement being discussed. Refreshing. :) Every minute with her is a learning moment. We've seen in 3 lessons that she can fuse genre or she can approach them from the purist's perspective, and she can review choreography and offer guidance in an age appropriate manner. My daughter is already looking much cleaner in her technique than she, herself, thought possible. Hope. You're in excellent hands with Miss Ashley. For the hesitant, she's no doubt worth the rates she quotes for an individual lesson. If you want to get A to B, this is your teacher. Come to her with an agenda, and she'll help you get through it. My child loves her. Good luck and Keep Dancing!
