With my 15 years of experience and a Bachelor's and Master's degree in flute performance, you can expect lessons from me to be the highest quality. I have years of experience teaching dozens of flutists of all ages, and I make sure to adjust my teaching to the needs of each individual student. Everybody is different, so I want to make sure students get the most out of their experience! Young beginners will begin in methods such as Patricia George's "Flute 101" series or Kathleen Blocki's flute method series, while intermediate and advanced players will have a more comprehensive approach with studies in tone development, technique enhancement, etudes, and solo repertoire.

In the few months that I've had flute lessons with Drew, I've grown so much. As a beginner in flute, I was completely scared and overwhelmed with taking band for the first time. Knowing I needed lessons, I'm so glad that I was paired with Drew. On my first lesson, Drew asked me what my goals were and I told him that it was to just simply read the notes on the page. That's all I expected to learn from him, but he taught me so much more! Drew taught me about musical expression, tone and all the little details behind flute playing. His teachings challenged and motivated me. My peers and band teacher have noticed my improvement and progress. Thanks to Drew, I can now play with confidence and poise. -Emma

DJ Dino helped my husband get lessons and I have to say, I can actually listen to my husband's sets now. Dino did an amazing job with the in-home sessions, was easy to work with, and always on time. He is a highly patient, easy going and knowledgeable individual. I'd highly recommend him for any level DJ.

I teach jazz and improve piano. It is excellent for songwriters, or people who are new to the idea of music theory. For our first lesson (1 hour) you choose a song you want to play and we will work on that. Most students begin playing all major and minor triads in the first lesson, that is A LOT of songs. My classes are built around the student and not the other way around.

I've been teaching piano for more than 30 years and my students have been accepted in major university programs as music performance majors, as well as, participated in performing groups and serve as musicians in their churches and communities. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to gain at least a basic understanding of how to read music and as time goes on you'll be able to begin playing songs of your choosing, as well as, songs I may recommend for you. I specialize in classical and Christian music, but I can also teach you the style that you are most interested in. You will learn to play a variety of styles of music while also learning the basics of music theory. I typically use Alfred method books for teens & adults and John Thompson method books for children, and have the following tools available for your lessons: Keyboards, mics, recording equipment, a variety of method and song books. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to ...

"I highly recommend taking guitar lessons with Ahmad. I've had instructors in the past who I realized weren't the best match for what I was I was trying to accomplish and the first lesson gave me the space to feel out if Ahmad was going to be a good match for me! After the first lesson I immediately knew Ahmad was going to be professional, skilled, easy to work with, and open-minded. I really appreciated that Ahmad was down to go outside of your standard lessons in music theory and cater my experience in a way that would fast track me to what I wanted to accomplish within my lessons. As a self-taught musician who has been playing in touring bands for about the last 4 years I had a lot of different strengths and weaknesses. Ahmad helped me hone in on areas that would allow me to boost my confidence in practices and live performances while developing skills to better communicate musically with my bandmates. I believe Ahmad is the perfect instructor for all skill levels and backgrounds. He is an extremely talented and versatile musician. In addition to his abilities as a musician and instructor, he is patient, easy to communicate with, motivating, and understanding."
