Danielle Cooke has taught my two sons (aged 10 and 6) piano for over a year now, and we have been very happy with her. Having played piano for almost 15 years when I was younger, I have been looking for the right fit to start my children on their own music journey. Danielle was referred to us by a friend, and we have been so pleased to find someone who enjoys teaching children, and who can balance patience, humor, theory and skill in her lessons. She challenges my children in a warm and nurturing way, and in a way that draws them in to the music and gives them pride of their accomplishments. With these ages and two very distinct learning personalities, it is amazing to see how they both resonate with her teaching style and are learning at their own levels, and have come so far in a short time. She has many teaching tools in her back pocket, and an appreciation for classical, contemporary, and recognizable children’s music (an important mix for little ones!). I have caught a glimpse of her own talents and her students’ work at more advanced levels and can see Danielle’s impressive range of repertoire and expertise across a variety of styles. She has a gift!

My son is thirteen now and was taking piano lessons from her for more than four years. I am fond of watching him learn and grow his piano playing skills everyday. His teacher, Ms. Danielle, guides and polishes his skills while giving him new challenges continuously. Also, she is flexible with our expectations from my son and she makes the learning to play piano is fun. She is a great asset for the community and wish her all the very best.

In music recording lessons, we will focus on learning Pro Tools and other DAWs in a hands-on setting. I provide students with editing exercises and songs to mix and master that we will work through together. We can also discuss miking techniques, signal flow, post-production techniques, ear training, and acoustics. I tailor each lesson to the student's interests and to help the student achieve their goals.

About Summer

I believe that the most important aspect of teaching music is creating a positive and individualized learning environment while simultaneously teaching the necessary technique and knowledge to play your instrument both successfully and confidently.   Above all, our lessons will focus on reaching

I have always wanted to learn to play the piano. At the age of 50 I decided it was a perfect time! I picked Summer and it was the best choice I ever made!! She is such a great , patient teacher. She explains every thing so thoroughly that I had no problems understanding her! I caught on and achieved my goal of playing my favorite song, "Claire De lune" and more, I may not sound like a concert pianist, but I am proud of my accomplishment. It never would have happened with out such a fabulous teacher!
Peyton
This is from my daughter who is taking lessons with Summer: “Summer has really helped me learn guitar. I have learned 20 songs now with her and she speeds things up if it is too easy and she lets me learn another song if one is too hard. I like her a lot.”
Jasmine
Summer is my 6 year old daughters guitar teacher. She has been phenomenal! In eight weeks she’s taught her all her cords, three songs, and she’s even learned how to write music! Summer is a patient and kind teacher who offers clear instructions and has good classroom management skills. I highly recommend her.

I have lived in and worked in and breathed recording music since I was a kid. Back then, it was a big deal. You needed two inch tape and a half a million dollars of gear.

Now I have a way for even beginners to do the unthinkable: start recording at their the very first session with just a three-piece studio using Ignite software, a laptop and a small controller. This is not just dragging loops around. I mean real recording. Let's talk!

Randy is an expert. Randy is kind, calm, patient and a good explainer. Randy will send you clear instructions and practice material and will stay responsive between lessons. Randy is a gentleman and he is very nice to be taught by.

Randy is an outstanding teacher. I started out with zero singing experience and was scared to sing anything in public. Thanks to Randy's instruction and guidance, I recently song a song (while I played guitar) for family for the first time in my life. In addition to being a fantastic teacher, Randy is an all around great guy. Highly recommended!
Lavonn P.
This review is waaaay over do. When I was begginer singer Randy was the first teacher to break down to me why my goals were more than realistic and set a new standard for what I felt a instrument coach should be. So here we go.

Randy is every creative, spontaneous, disorganized person's dream come true. Someone who helps you build the connection to your imagination to create whatever music you want in reality. He understands the common misconceptions people have that cripple their creativity and he will get you out that box really fast. Randy works to educate you and give you tools to where you don't need him. That's how much love this teacher has for his students. There is a lot of potential people have that they miss out on because they don't have the right teacher. So going to list some specifics.

1) If your a begginer artist rather if sing or have a different instrument your trying to improve with, know if you start with Randy you will be in GREAT hands. Music theory in general can be confusing but its the foundation any serious artist needs to understand to create their own music. Randy is great with explaining and helping you understand whatever area your struggling with.

2) Randy is all about organization and helping you set the right goals. Alot of your visions and ideas as a artist can be all over the place and knowing where to start can be overwhelming. First session you will be leaving with a game plan that will not fail so long as you do your homework.

3) For the singers who don't think they can sing certain songs know that Randy is very talented in making music. He can put any song you want to sing in your own range and is all about you sounding like you. He will help you discover what chords and melodies sound good with your voice. This is very important because again you get out of that limited box holding back your creativity.

4) This is the most important thing. Accountability.
Randy will make it very clear to you with everything he gives you that its on you to practice these things. He doesn't do a half job and he is thorough. He is the kind of professional you need to work with and I promise if you do book with him you will not look at alot of other teachers the same. He is worth every penny!

So in conclusion if you want to sing well or make your own tunes in no time, Randy is the man you need to talk to. All you gotta be is disciplined and do your homework. This teacher makes it fun and exciting.

My 9 yr. old daughter received singing lessons with Rachel. Rachel was SO wonderful, patient, and creative with every session with her. She was constantly coming up with different ways to keep her engaged and was always reassuring her to increase her confidence. She gave great constructive feedback on how my daughter was doing and what she can work on to improve. I give her 5 stars! Thanks so much, Rachel!

Overall, very impressed. She is direct and doesn't tell you something you want to hear. Her evaluation process is well rounded and planned. She puts together a great curriculum to know what to expect in the coming lessons. Very easy going person and makes you feel completely comfortable at the initial lessons.
