Marcus is a great player and good listener on my questions. It's joy to collaborate with Marcus on projects.
Diana R.
I am so thankful to have found Marcus as my bass instructor; he is the exact type of teacher I was looking for. His training and love for music were evident upon first meeting him. I have learned so much in the short time I have been taking lessons. He is a very patient and passionate teacher.
Tyler W.
All around wonderful teacher

Marcus is quite the gifted teacher. By far the best I've had the pleasure to aspire under. He is very easy to understand, and doesn't overwhelm you, taking time on the little things (the most important). He creates an atmosphere that is encouraging to learn in. We all know those teachers that create a stressful environment that inhibits progressive learning, as well as frustration in yourself. Marcus is certainly the opposite. He is also quite easy to communicate with--Creating lesson plans, setting goals, etc... In summation, a professional and a friend I would recommend to anyone and everyone.

Zach is a great teacher! He has been teaching my son (HS Junior) piano since November and from the start, Zach has been very easy to work with, a good balance of encouragement while challenging Noah to improve his skill level. Definitely recommend :)
Erika
I first got to talking with Zach back in 2015, I had been looking for an accomplished musician to play at my husbands birthday party. He did not disappoint! ! Everyone was very impressed with his music style and professionalism. Through that connection we got to talking, and I also learned that he teaches music all over the south bay! Years later now in 2019, My 16 year old son had been wanting to take electric guitar lessons, but we had not been finding a good fit with a teacher. My son is very smart and artistic, however struggles with a mild learning disability. I reached out to Zach, and we discussed giving it a try. Zach is very patient and breaks up the music information in a way that is very understandable for my son, and is hands on pointing out the best techniques to help him excel, and stay engaged. My son has been taking lessons from Zach once a week for a few months, and I cannot believe my sons progress!! He actually enjoys learning the guitar and is feeling very inspired to continue to learn more because he is learning to play all the songs he is interested in. MY son is now teaching me how to play some new songs..I am thankful to Zach for empowering my son to unlock his musical ability and keeping him interested in learning in a stress free environment. Zach although very professional, he is a relaxed teacher, and very relatable to young people, teens and young adults which I think makes lessons fun! I am very picky about who teaches my kids, and Zach I would say checks off all the right boxes!!

My lessons are personalized to each student, with a general musical education in mind. Students not only learn how to play a wide and diverse repertoire, but they also learn theory and ear training as a way to better understand the music they play, and the music they hear.

I have been teaching privately for over 10 years, and also teach at a local university; I have taught students of all ages, all levels and from all backgrounds.

I can help prepare for auditions, pass Certificate of Merit exams (with MTAC), enroll in SYMF, and much more.

I spent twelve years studying classical piano under the tutorship for an classical pianist from Oberlin Conservatory and am currently on the piano faculty at Music and Arts in Franklin, TN.

You will get a excellent foundation for technique, style, sight-reading, harmony, and repertoire than will transfer to any other genre. Beginning students will start with a foundation for technique and apply these to basic repertoire, learn to read music, and play scales. Intermediate and beyond will build and improve on these skills to learn classical repertoire and more complex pieces.

I love and encourage creativity in my students. I have studied music for over 15 years and am well-versed in theory, performance and songwriting. I craft my lessons around what the individual student wants, but one thing all my lessons have in common is that you will be able to learn a lot, and do so in a laid-back environment. If you've always looked at a guitar and imagined yourself writing your own riffs and songs, you've come to the right place! Message me to chat and see if I can be of service to you on your musical journey.

About Bill

I've been playing guitar for over 14 years and have been writing original music for almost as long. I really want to share my knowledge with students so that I may increase their passion for music and their drive to excel and create.

"I am an adult beginner violinist. When I first met Stephanie, I had barely touched a violin, but I was determined to learn how to play it. With her help and patience, I am progressing through the Suzuki method as well as doing ear training and music theory. Stephanie is an excellent musician as well as instructor! Her method of teaching keeps the students engaged, encouraged and excited about learning music from all sides of it."

10 Inspirational Quotes from Famous Violin Players

Do you need a little inspiration to get you through your violin lessons? When learning a new instrument, especially one as complex as the violin, it's normal to feel frustrated or defeated. Even the most famous violin players have felt insecure about their playing at one point or another during their career. Instead of admitting defeat and giving up, it's important that you overcome these feelings of frustration and remember the many reasons why you first started playing the violin. Below are …
