Although this was my first lesson with Brian, he is a perfect match for me. He has a gentle, docile personality, good humored and very patient. He's especially great with beginners, older students and special needs individuals. In close proximity so he didn't have to travel far. His teaching style, for me, is very effective and he's a very nice person.

Brian is the best! Highly encouraging - especially for me as a beginner.

Do you have ideas for songs but wonder how to structure them into complete songs? Do you hear great tunes in your head but not know how to fit them to chords? Are you puzzled by how weave a magical melody to match your lyrics? Stumped by limited rhyme possibilities or awkward phrasing?
Perhaps you could benefit by having a seasoned songwriter as a mentor to coach you in creating beautiful songs in your own unique style. That's where I can help.

Sean was immediately able to assess where I was at on the guitar and I was surprised at how quickly I began learning new chords and techniques. The lesson was natural and fluid and I left knowing more than I did when the lesson started. I have lots to practice! I would definitely recommend Sean as a great guitar teacher.

"Amber is extremely knowledgeable about multiple instruments (my boys are learning the clarinet and violin) and excels at introducing young children to the basic foundation skills needed to succeed in playing well. She keeps lessons fun so that the children enjoy coming back each week and finds ways to keep them motivated when they feel challenged. :D"

"My first lesson with Cyndi was a complete giant step towards my goal. She explains things well and we hit it off right away. We got right to work on the good technique that I had never had. She pushed me to the limit and more, which is what I asked her to do.
Aside from doing the all-important breathing and scale work I learned the secret of an effective vibrato. She explained it in a very simple way. For me it was a revelation to think of it like this; an immediate breakthrough for me!
I was sent home with some breathing exercises and scale work as well as how to effectively sing the song I had brought along to work on with her.

Cyndi has a beautiful soul and is a very effective and positive teacher.

Thank's Cyndi! See you next week."

Matt teaches my 10 year old on drums and has done an amazing job. He has instilled the basics and foundation of drumming while still holding the interest of my son. At the same time he is developing his ear and teaching him how to play and adapt to different styles of music.

I highly recommend Matt for all ages of drumming kids and adults alike."
