Sadly, I had to stop taking lessons because I got very busy, but I really enjoyed taking voice lessons from Leah for almost 2 years. She was very dedicated to helping me achieve the best sound possible and was excellent at explaining how to get a better sound. I would highly recommend her to anyone wanting to improve their singing!

Ryan is a gem of a teacher. My son has been taking trumpet lessons with Ryan for the past 4 months and I couldn't be happier with the results. His love for music and teaching shines through whether it's an in person or online class. My son now enjoys practicing and looks forward to his lessons with Ryan.
Jade
I have been taking piano/music lessons from Ryan for 8 months now. It has been a great journey with him. As a 40yo student, I always have my ways of learning music (or anything), and Ryan truly customized every lesson to my likings. And these changes based on what was going on in my life at the moment of the lessons, be that a celebration, a loss, a growth and such. So the lessons with him have been healing process to me like a therapy. Now I understand why there is such thing as music therapy. I started lessons with him to play piano, but he had been showering me with lots of music theory which I have been always curious about. It is like learning a whole new language and it opened up my eyes to a world of music. Ryan is kind, friendly and flexible. An hour lesson with him give me happy and positive energy for a week. Why wouldn’t musical conversations give anyone such pleasure? I am committed to continuing my musical journey with Ryan!

In addition to giving classical violin lessons for over 6 years, I love teaching traditional Scottish fiddle music. This genre compliments classical training exceptionally well, and offers students a unique creative outlet. Not only is Scottish fiddling fun, but it allows for a great deal of individual interpretation within the style. Stylistic ornamentation, tune types, tune structure, and developing sets of tunes will be highlighted in lessons, and tune composition will be encouraged.

She's very knowledgeable. She used the time to really analyze and work with my daughters ability. Afterwards she gave great advice, the pros and cons on what she needs to work on.
Eric
Very good at explaining concepts in a second, or sometimes third, way so that her student can make an inner connection. I also admire the way she organizes her lessons so we refresh and enhance the previous session and then move on to new technique. Appreciate the professional way she communicates as necessary outside class, too.

He quickly identifies areas I need to work on and both shows and tells me how to do that. He encourages questions as well as creativity that builds on the basics. He makes good use of the lesson time and is very encouraging. I can easily take what I learn in the lesson and practice it on my own. I look forward to my next lesson!"
