I’m just starting to learn and I’ve tried a couple other classes but it’s difficult to follow along with live lessons. Hers was slower and more detailed, showing the chords clearly- and talking about the timing was very helpful! She even took the time to answer my question about being unable to hold the strings correctly. Great teacher!
Steve
Our daughter has really enjoyed getting to know Lee and genuinely looks forward to the lesson time with her each week. We’re also pleased with how well our daughter has been doing on her instrument since beginning lessons.

As a generally shy person, I was pleasantly surprised to find Stephanie is a wonderfully friendly person who made me feel comfortable right away. I'm impressed by her ability to explain techniques and concepts on a level I can understand as a beginner. She's more than happy to be flexible when I need to shift my schedule. Her feedback is always honest and incredibly useful. Look no further!
Anesh
Learnt a lot. She's very patient and motivating.
William
If you truly want to learn how to sing it starts with picking the right instructor. Stephanie is the absolute perfect instructor for those looking for someone who is patient, articulate, fun-spirited, understanding, dedicated to you, knows how to make a beginner "get it", and will make you wish your sessions lasted longer than an hour. She has the ability to get you to connect with singing, even from an emotional standpoint. If you are looking for a singing coach, then look no further. I guarantee this will become one of the greatest life experiences you will encounter with her. She is not only a great coach but a wonderful person just to share an hour with. You won't be disappointed.

Reading music is essential to playing classical music and important I believe for every piano player no matter what genre you focus on. I adore Bach and Beethoven, as they do wonders for developing dexterity in both hands, while playing some of the most beautiful music ever written.

We will also praise a variety of scales, arpeggios etc., to strengthen the fingers and hands as well as improve dexterity.

About Lynn

I have been studying voice and piano and performing on stage in various capacities since I was a small child, acting professionally on stage, in films and TV for most of my adult life. I've been blessed to study with countless music luminaries in varying genres, from jazz and classical to rock n'

Lynn is a fantastic teacher! She effortlessly bridges genres and styles. She is personable, dedicated and inspiring. We are incredibly fortunate to have found her.
Chris
Lynn is stellar. Her background and training are substantial and impressive. She is prompt, courteous, calm and absolutely wonderful with our daughter (Age 9) who has challenges focusing and staying on task. Lynn is kind, but navigates the lessons confidently, fluidly and with a focused energy. She works with our daughter's playfulness, incorporates humor and positive, encouraging energy into every lesson. Our daughter has shown signs of great improvement with Lynn. Lynn assigns tasks and practicing points each week for our daughter to work on which are balanced and also bring in a component of improvisation, which is SO helpful for kids who have challenges with focusing. Lynn is awesome, highly recommend!
Jessica
Lynn is amazing!! Not only do my children love her as a person (they literally wait at the window on Wednesday nights) but she knows how to keep them engaged and interested in learning throughout their lessons. My son has learned to play actual songs in less than 10 lessons. Can't recommend her enough!

I have a background in fundamental rhythm, rather than teaching the student to simply play, I teach them to read and write their own rhythms and drum beats in a fun and hands-on manner using methods that music teachers around the country use in their classrooms. Furthermore, I have years of experience teaching children as young as 4 years old from their very first lesson. I’ve developed my own method for children to read drum music using simple and an easy to understand rhythmic language.

Every student is a unique person who deserves a lesson customized to their individual needs. Each of my students prospers in an atmosphere of patience and encouragement. While the lessons are fun and enjoyable, the serious student will be supported in the development of skills leading to a rewarding career. And the more casual students will grow in an appreciation of music that will always enrich their lives.

I begin each voice lesson with a warm-up to prepare the student for their session. Next, we do a series of exercises specially designed to help each individual develop their skill in a way that best fits them. We then work on a piece of their choice for the remainder of the lesson, perfecting their technique and helping them become performance ready. I teach with patience and fun because I feel that this is the key to achieving goals and inspiring a good habit of practice.

"Aaron is a wonderful teacher. I took lessons from him covering a wide range of topics in music - solfege, theory, piano. I have had a great deal musical training, and am an adult learner. Aaron treated me like an adult but progressively pushed me to a deeper understanding. Aaron found the pockets where I most needed to pull my experience and training together, and taught me a great many things in a short time. I highly recommend him as a teacher."
