I've been taking lessons from Steven for I think two years now and he's helped me so much not only in reading music but also in ear training and in my song writing. He's incredibly patient and fun to work with. He also has a really nice cat.

I insist you have fun, so pick a song you would like to play and we'll work through the music together! Alternately there is a whole language to music to communicate with and I can teach everything from fundamentals to jazz theory.

Brian is great for kids and adults!

My 10-year-old showed interest in learning piano, and Brian is great! My 8-year-old thought it looked fun, so we added him, and Brian does a great job with him. In fact, my 40-something husband was so impressed, he signed up, too! Brian is terrific with all of them. Everyone is learning at his own speed and each is improving. Brian adeptly teaches according to skill, interest, aptitude, and attitude. I'm so impressed! I heartily recommend for anyone looking for a music teacher.

My speciality is helping young children learn the basics of this instrument! To see them strum their first E chord is fantastic :). I do suggest a half-size guitar for students nine and younger.

Would not recommend. Has some knowledge but a really bad character and will put you down as a person. If you aren’t a favorite, you’re ranked least important and more likely to be put down. A really bad experience and person.

Miriam is an excellent musician, mentor, and person! She knows her craft extremely well and knows how to coach someone by offering critical feedback and encouragement. Miriam is the kindest and most compassionate person that you will ever meet. Taking vocal lessons with Miriam will make you a better singer and a better person. Thanks, Miriam!
Ethan
Miriam is by far the best singing instructor that I have ever had. She works with you so well to make sure that you find some sort of growth in your singing ability every time you meet with her. Totally Incredible!!

"I have been playing the guitar for over 20 years, on and off.At first I just wanted to learn a few songs and impress people. I LOVE music and really wanted to play for myself. i have taken lessons from multiple people. Taking lessons with Jimmy took me to a new level. I thought I just wanted to to play fast but Jimmy taught me technique, music theory, composition, live playing concepts. I have learned more with Jimmy in 1 year than 4- 5 years with other teachers. The Light Bulb is on and I am playing better then I could imagine. BTW: people are impressed but I don't care, because I love music!"

"I started my lessons with Nick just one month. I know I am inquisitive, intense, overly involved and very detail oriented with my interests in general and I treat guitar the same way. I enjoy and immerse myself into it. I think Nick has a very broad knowledge of guitar playing and comes across as a very conscientious instructor in the way he handles my overachieving demands. I would surely recommend him."

"You can say that I'm a rookie when it comes to playing guitar. So, I decided to do something about it. I'm taking 45 minutes sessions with Nick and I have to say that he is a really talented a teacher as well as he is a musician. While having fun during the lessons, I rake in so many new tricks up my sleeve. I love his individual approach, flexibility, and creativity just to outline a couple. For the short while that I've known Nick, he's been all, a patient teacher, a talented musician, but most of all he's been an inspiration to me. My goal was to learn to read music and learn how to play the instrument more fluently. But now, the whole world of new and fascinating opportunities opened up to me because of his mentoring and support. Thank you Nick! I wish I could take longer sessions with you on a more regular basis."

"I wanted to learn how to play a Gypsy King song for my wife at our wedding. Lorin taught me fairly quickly, he made it fun and really easy to learn. Then I figured I would learn the basics so I can just jam out to songs or just mess around with my guitar. Now I can strum some early 90's or old school alternative songs. It seems alot easier to learn songs now. Super nice guy and very smart/laid back. Definitely worth the money"
