Curtis has been a great instructor for me. Curtis listens ,encourages and teaches in away that I am making progress each week on skills like strumming ,timing, and rhythm . The bottom line is that I truly look forward to my lesson every week with Curtis and I think you will too.

Curtis is a fantastic teacher! He is patient, enthusiastic, and encouraging. He teaches the type of songs you want to learn and not some song from a guitar guidebook. My first lesson was two hours and it quickly went by. I learned a lot, had a lot of fun and am looking forward to my next lesson. If you are in search of a guitar instructor, I would highly recommend him.

My ukulele mentor was extremely knowledgeable regarding the intricacies of various music formats. She broke down complex details into language that I could understand. She challenged me with next steps and was kind to make me feel accomplished.

Classical approach to singing all genres! Instruction is focused on building your technique of posture, breathing, resonance, vowel clarity, and tension-free singing. Along with technique we work on finding your own style, your true voice, understanding musicality, stage presence, and getting over performance freight (I have great tools to help out with this!) I want to make sure you feel confident singing in front of audiences and vocally healthy to do it for the long run.

Kate has been a wonderful fit for my daughter. She took time to get to know her learning styles and what she responds to, and has really incorporated that into how she approaches my daughter's lessons. She is flexible, friendly, and encouraging. I highly recommend her as a voice instructor!

"I've been training with Eric for almost a year now and I plan to continue for as long as I can. Learning to sing can be a difficult and nerve-wracking experience but Eric makes the journey much easier.

Eric makes you feel completely at ease during the lessons and does a great job of identifying and relating to the problems you have. Since he's had a wide range of singing experience, he is able to approach the lessons with various techniques to find something that works for you. I would highly recommend Eric if you're looking for a voice coach who is patient and committed to your success!"

I wasn't sure how online classes were going to turn out since I had never had a lesson online before. Francesca prepped me for an audition and I was amazed at the things she noticed such as posture and body language with my online lesson as well as voice placement. Each lesson with her I have learned valuable material to help me improve in all areas of being an artist! I am blessed for having found her and I highly recommend that you give her a try because you'll be so glad that you did!"

Music is an underrated but extremely important part of a child’s education. The benefits of learning an instrument go beyond simply having a better lifestyle. Studies have shown how music improves the brain function, hand coordination, self-discipline, and hard-working habits of those who have studied it in their youth. Of all the instruments to choose from, learning piano is arguably the best. Let's look at some reasons why children should learn piano, and what makes this such a great first i …
