My son has loved taking lessons with Linda. She is setting just the right pace with him. She is flexible given his strengths and weaknesses. He was genuinely disappointed when I told him he couldn't go to lessons this week because of a family commitment. Can't recommend highly enough!
Janet P.
very comfortable and satisfying first lesson.

Linda was great! As an adult beginner with the cello she made the lesson enjoyable and easy to follow. She adjusted quickly for where I knew a little and where I knew nothing. Highly recommend her!

tl;dr: Chloe is an excellent teacher - patient, organized, effective

Context: I'm a beginner adult flute learner and this is the first time I'm learning any musical instrument.
I’ve been learning the flute with Chloe. She's been teaching me not just music, but HOW TO learn music. Every time I make a mistake, she has great insight into possible issues I might be having - which is REALLY hard to figure out while teaching online. She makes sheet music very accessible, and includes advice and resources on how to practice by myself, how to resolve errors, how to warm up and practice. I’ve never played an instrument, so she’s tailored her teaching to my specific context, which helps me learn much more effectively. Learning a new skill is an immensely rewarding as well as a very frustrating process, and she’s helped me be patient with the mistakes I make in the process. This in turn makes the classes low pressure, effective and enjoyable.

My name is Jerry. I LOVE music and passing my knowledge on to others. I have played many different instruments in many different kinds of bands. It all one major thing in common, it was FUN! If you are not having fun while learning an instrument you won't want to learn. Lessons can be fun AND educational at the same time. I have had many parents tell me I'm one of the best teachers they have ever seen. (A couple of them were public school teachers themselves). I truly want my students to succeed and I will do everything in my power to help them accomplish that!

Extremely unprofessional to abruptly cancel scheduled/paid lessons without the courtesy of a message or any notice because this instructor was unhappy with a 12-year-old child's progress. Very surprised by and disappointed in the manner in which he handled this situation, certainly could have been handled with more respect and maturity.

Jerry is a wonderful instructor. I wasn’t sure how online lessons would go but they have been seamless and fun and my son is making progress with the bugle. I would highly recommend this format and this teacher. The convenience and quality of instruction are excellent. We are signing up for more lessons and may move on to another instrument once my son feels confident on the bugle.

Chris has been great with my middle school band student teaching/coaching the fundamentals and making trumpet fun again. My kiddo looked forward to his weekly lessons and enjoys band again! His confidence level while playing has soared. Definitely recommend.
Keira F.
Chris is kind and patient. He is not a French horn player, but is able to teach the basic components. He discusses the form of playing a lot. My daughter has enjoyed learning from him.
Catherine M.
Fantastic Experience!

As a colleague of Chris' I can heartily recommend his teaching to any trombonists wishing to hone their skills as musicians. Chris focuses on the individual needs of each student, working to tailor his lessons to meet their specific needs and face their unique challenges. His attention to detail and patience helps each student build a strong foundation in musicality and fantastic brass playing. I recommend him highly as both a superb educator and performer!

I enjoy his since of humor as well as his ability to work with my schedule. Mr. Talley has also provided me with hand picked and sometimes hand written exercises personalized to best suit and benefit me. My experience with him has been nothing but pleasant and i seem to be improving a-lot since starting lessons with him.

"I had Jeremy as a tuba instructor my last year of college. I was a bit skeptical since he looked so young, but after my first few lessons with him, I realized what a valuable teacher I had. He was very supportive, and instead of making me feel like a failure in my mistakes, gave me the instruction and tools necessary to succeed. I wish my time with him had been longer, but I loved the short time we did work together."

"I took tuba lessons from Brian for a few years, and I highly recommend him. He is an excellent and passionate music educator. He is great at keeping students challenged and motivated, and he has a cheerful and fun personality. Thanks to Brian's help, I made first chair All-State tuba, won a couple of soloist competitions, and was accepted to multiple colleges for music performance. With those kinds of results, I wholeheartedly recommend Brian for private music lessons."
