About Sue

Learning the flute is a great way to explore your creativity. Flute is the one wind instrument with amazing versatility and expression. It is as comfortable in an orchestra as a jazz band. Do you or a child you know want to learn how to play flute, recorder, baroque flute, or even piccolo? I l

Sue is patient and extremely knowledgeable about music and flutes. She has an easy going personality and I feel very comfortable learning under her guidance.
Beth
I can't say enough great things about Sue! Under her guidance, it's been a pleasure getting back into playing my flute after a hiatus of over 25 years. Her knowledge of the instrument and expert instruction (as well as her infinite patience!) continue to provide me with the motivation I've needed to overcome some of the challenges I've faced after being away from my instrument for so long. Her teaching style is relaxed and flexible but firm; she knows just when I need to be challenged and just when to back away a bit. She's been a great fit for me, and I encourage other flute players of all levels to giver her a try!
Rina
Dr. Sue Sheya is truly an exceptional instructor. As a student who studied a little bit of music in Europe, it was difficult for me to adjust to the American solfege system (C, D, E scale) as I was used to the European solfege (Do, Re, Mi). However, Dr. Sheya was very flexible and adjusted all her lesson materials so that I could truly succeed in learning. I highly recommend her for anyone looking for a supportive, friendly, and enthusiastic teacher that can truly guide them in learning how to play the flute!

Piano is probably the best instrument to start music on, and is a great supplement to any instrument. A knowledge of piano, and an ability to play and understand it, will make the entire process of music much easier. It's also a lot of fun to play!

About Colin

Kelly
Colin has been a fantastic teacher for my 12-year old son, who is learning his first instrument. Colin is kind, friendly, personable, and easy-going. He keeps the lessons fresh and fun. My son has made a very nice connection with Colin and really enjoys his lessons.
Jennifer
It's pretty terrifying to try a new instrument, especially one like the trumpet--which is so loud and obvious if you're wrong! Colin was supportive and warm and encouraging, and kept me at ease and willing to keep trying. He seems knowledgeable in alot of areas of music too, which is an added bonus. Highly recommend!

Trying to learn something from scratch can be hard, especially when it comes a musical instrument (Where do my hands go? What do these notes mean? etc..) Trust me I've been there. And that's why I'll do my best to make your or your child's introduction to the world of guitar as smooth as possible.

I specialize in classical guitar, for beginner students. I begin with basic finger-plucking patterns and finger exercises, followed by music notation and exercises from a book.

About Alexander

I have been doing one-on-one private tutoring sessions with beginner students from home for a couple years now, and am proud to admit that I have seen many beginners become proficient in the guitar, and come to enjoy playing the instrument under my guidance. I am very patient with my students and a

Jimmie is a great instructor. Perfect for kids. He’s patient and my son looks forward to coming to his lessons!
Tory H.
My son is extremely pleased with his drum lessons he is receiving from Instructor Jimmy Howell Jr..
Desiree
Jimmie arrived on-time and ready to start. He dove right into getting to know my son and started teaching him on bells and learning rhythm since that`s what my son will be expected to know for his first year of band in the fall.
He was very good at connecting with my son and easily had him enjoying the lesson.
You can tell Jimmie has a passion for teaching children and his face lit up talking about it. He heaped praise on my sons accomplishments and my son said he truly enjoyed the lesson and can`t wait for next week.
I`d highly recommend him to teach your child. I don`t think you`d find someone else with the same passion for children. So glad I made the decision to hire Jimmie and look forward to many years of him being involved in developing my son into a awesome musician.
Thank you Jimmie!

I have been teaching and playing the violin for over 25 years, and I believe in customizing each lesson to the goals and interests of the student. I enjoy playing and teaching many different styles and it is important to me that each student walk away from every lesson feeling positive, motivated, and accomplished. I love teaching because I consider it a team effort, and so with every new student I also learn and grow.

"Once again Missy's education of the mechanics of what the voice is doing is very helpful to me. I appriciate the atmosphere she continues to make for me. It enables me to grow in my comfort of making mistakes and learning from them instead of the mental gymnastics of, "It's not perfect, I quite". Her encouragement and teaching skills are helping me achieve far more than just a voice to sing with. Thank you!"

"My son said he wanted to take banjo lessons. I asked him to look on-line to find someone in our area. He came back to me to say that he had found exactly who he wanted to teach him, and it was Aaron. I was quite skeptical that an on-line lesson could actually be productive, but I said we could try it and see. And so happy we did. Aaron is such a great teacher! He is actually able to teach on-line and teach really well. My son has made a lot of progress in playing claw hammer banjo. Aaron is completely positive and always encouraging, and my son thinks he's the greatest! I do too!"

You Know You’re a Violin Player When…

Let’s face it; not everyone can be a violin player. It takes a certain individual to master such a complex instrument that requires immense dedication and concentration. From rough finger tips to grueling practice sessions, violin players are challenged both physically and mentally whenever they step onto the stage. Whether you’ve just started taking violin lessons or you’re a seasoned violin player, chances are you can relate to more than one of the following things… 1. Ever …
