About Ruben

Over the course of my musical career, I have had the opportunity to learn from many musicians. From University Professors to Street Corner Musicians, I have gathered much knowledge on how to play music. Applying that knowledge to my guitar playing has opened up many doors of opportunity and has ma

My daughters first online lessons and a wonderful experience! Ruben is very engaging, friendly and knowledgeable. He is easy to contact, accommodating and quick to respond to questions. Would highly recommend!
Kevin and Ella M.
My 9-year-old daughter and 11-year-old son have been taking uke lessons for 3 weeks now and they really enjoy Ruben's style of teaching; so do we. He provides a great combination of making it fun while also really teaching them the foundations of music. They are already reading and writing some music and they enjoy doing their music homework. Most important, they are having fun at the lessons and while practicing at home.

Great fun, well done. Excellent teacher!

John was great with my 4yo son. He was patient and kind. We look forward to more lessons
James M.
Hiring J.R. has been an incredibly uplifting, fun, and educational experience. A far better experience than I could have asked or hoped for. I’m learning! And excited for the progress, which does take an investment of practice, energy & time. He is extremely patient & flexible with how to cope with my needs (when possible) and super supportive: I’m almost 50 and paralyzed.

As corny as this sounds I’ve never known anyone with such a broad overall knowledge, experience and wisdom about music and instruments. If I have a question about my piano playing, or virtually any music question, he either has the answer or helps me find it if he doesn’t.

He is extremely knowledgeable and respectful and has more than earned my respect and gratitude.

Hiring him is one of the best choices I’ve ever made. The only regret I have is that I didn’t hire him sooner.

Love my 1st lesson. I learned so much in one day. Definitely looking forward to my next lesson.

Piano should be fun! I've taught for 10 years all ages and abilities. We choose songs that student is interested in a. Any genre that he/she is passionate about. I include some exercises and theory based around the songs we are working on. This makes it easier to memorize , read and understand music. It is like reading notes as words rather than a jumble of dots. I love jazz and classical and have toured domestically/internationally with pop acts.

About David

Classical, Jazz, Pop, R&B. Anything you are interested in! I include a variety of activities during the lesson that help keep it engaging and develop a complete understanding of the piece. This includes some light ear training, theory and exercises which can all be tapered to ability and repertoire

This was my first lesson with Lauren, I felt she understood what I was looking for, explained what I can expect, and took things as slow as I needed to go. I felt like we clicked and I plan on continuing lessons with Lauren.

Here are just a few ideas to get you started... Bariton …
