Every student is unique, so I will tailor the lessons to you and make it fun! I'm passing on to you the training I received from the very best master teachers of the violin. Stringed instruments are challenging, but I believe in enjoying making music at every level, while establishing a strong foundation in good technique. For learning fundamentals of music theory and ear training, we will play various rhythm and improvisational games. I have extensive background in European classical music, and I've also done quite a bit of improvisation, some fiddling, and electric violin and viola. Whether you want to be the next Joshua Bell or the next Lindsey Stirling, I can help you improve your playing. I will help you sing, dance and tell a story through your violin or viola.

Born into a musical family in 1966, I have extensive performance experience as a classical violinist and violist, and I've been composing my own music since 2000. I am very grateful to have studied with some of the finest teachers of violin, viola and chamber music, and I graduated in 1990 from th

Gloria has been a wonderful and inspiring teacher over a period of very formative years for me as a violinist. We first worked together for all 4 years of my undergraduate violin performance degree at Mills College from 2010-14, and Gloria helped me develop a lasting appreciation for listening deeply and developing focus for small details. We worked together on everything from solo Bach and Hindemith sonatas to concertos, chamber music, and orchestral excerpts. She has been a lasting influence in my life as a musician, and I will continue to return for musical and creative advice over the years even when I live far away.

I started when I was 10. My first performance was on a single snare drum and a cymbal at the 5th grade talent show, we performed Get Back by The Beatles. From there I became influenced by other drummers and wanted to be the best that I can. I started teaching drum lessons quite a while ago (maybe 10 years?) and have loved it ever since.

Blues is the heart and soul of American music. Every note sings with feeling and attitude. Make your guitar become your voice through diverse string bending and vibrato techniques, open tunings, four note chord voicings, voice leading, learn to play independent harmonies using fingerstyle or hybrid picking. Study all of the great blues forms, learn to improvise as well as compose. All of my students will learn the most important skill any musician can possess- the ability to listen to other musicians in a jam session and compliment their ideas.

Jason tailors the course to a student's individual learning pace and needs. There is also a good combination between theory and learning cords to play a song. Technique is emphasized to build good habits and a foundation for future growth.

Steve is a very good and extremely patient teacher. As much as I may dislike learning theory, Steve knows how to bring it all together so that it makes sense...like a light bulb suddenly switched on in my head. All those pieces put together suddenly become songs I recognize. I highly recommend Steve to anyone wanting to learn from a very personable teacher."

"If you are looking for a piano teacher that teaches gospel music Carl is the one.
Carl is the best piano instructor that I ever had. I am 68 and I haven't taken lessons in years. I was afraid that because of my age I would have trouble remembering what I learned in the past. I have only had 3 lessons so far and I am already playing a gospel song. Carl's teaching approach is excellent. and he has a lot of patience. I am remembering things that I learned when I was young and Carl's approach to teaching gospel music is excellent. I am learning how chords are created in a way that I never learned before. Even though I take online piano lessons, it seems like Carl is in the same room with me. It's amazing how he can see me as well as my piano keyboard and I can see him and his keyboard. We talk to each other as if we are in the same room. I highly recommend him to teach all ages because he has a lot of patience."
