You can expect me to listen to what you tell me, listen to how you play, and then give you information and activities to increase your understanding and develop your abilities. It could be anything from which end of the harmonica is up to advanced classical or jazz performance, or anything in between - blues harp, Neil Young, you name it.

About Winslow

My focus is on you - helping you achieve your goals with the harmonica, whatever they may be. Whatever inspires you to pick up the harmonica, whoever you want to emulate, whatever style grabs you, I bring the background, deep knowledge, and teaching experience to enrich your understanding and grow

Hello! I began studying piano when I was 4 through the Suzuki method and started teaching when I moved to San Francisco to start school. I am dedicated to the Suzuki method and believe in it; in case you're unfamiliar with the Suzuki method, it's a way of approaching music that focuses on fundamentals, developing the ear, and learning through emulation rather than solely on reading and theory. As someone who was taught by a more traditional teacher who was a strict adherent to the Suzuki method timeline, I have found myself to be much more flexible teacher who really wants to structure the lessons around the student to maximize an enjoyable relationship with the piano and music. For adults, of course, we start looking at reading pretty much from the beginning whereas for children, we steer clear of reading for a bit. I have a dog and two cats who are super friendly and who love to sit and listen to the piano lessons (I have had a few students who are scared) - just FYI! Looking ...

I'm a Board Certified Music Therapist who has been playing the ukulele for over 10 years. As a music therapist, I understand that every student has a different preference for learning and I teach according to that. It's not a one size fits all lesson. My goal is for the student to feel successful after every lesson!

I would like to start out saying I’m a 66 year old beginner acoustic guitar player. Kevin was very good in assuring me that the guitar isn’t that difficult to learn and proved it in my first lesson. He makes you feel at ease and throughly explains the lesson.

"Raymond is a master teacher and musician

Raymond is exceptional as a teacher and musician; always patient and enjoying the experience of guiding you to become the best musician you can be. His musical experience and abilities are evident. In addition to all of these qualities he is serious and dedicated to developing your knowledge and skills through discipline and practice - always with a sense of humor and enjoyment in the music and what you both are accomplishing. Learning to become a musician with Raymond is as enjoyable as listening and dancing to music. I look forward to my class with Raymond each time."

"Kait is part intuitive, part miracle-worker and all music and voice! She was able to take our daughter – whose older siblings said couldn't even sing 'Happy Birthday' – and work with her to achieve a Broadway-style range and capacity to belt out a song that no one in our family ever expected. Kait's ear and sense of what's possible in a voice is uncannily good. She can find the positive attributes in anyone's voice and build on them. Our daughter is now a confident, uninhibited singer and performer, thanks to Kait!"

Her lesson was relevant and fun, I was never passionate about music theory (over the years I've taken a more free spirited approach to creating music, by ear) and somehow I was engaged and the time flew. She goes above and beyond to help her students, she is helping me find the most helpful books for my goals as well as learning material to keep me engaged. Great teacher!"

How to Write a Song on Guitar Using Just 3 Chords

Even if you just started learning to play guitar,  you already have the tools to write your first song. Guitar teacher Aimee B. shares how to get started... You can write a song on guitar as early as after your first lesson or once you’ve learned a few basic chords. Whether you ultimately want to accompany your lead vocal, jam with others, or to be a wailing lead guitarist, you can, at anytime, write your own unique song. So where do you begin? How do you write a song? Here' …
