Most single productive day I’ve had at the piano.

DeAnna has excellent credentials as a pianist and music theorist, but more importantly for me she is a patient teacher and good communicator who works hard to ensure that I learn and understand even the most basic skills and techniques. She is also fun to talk to and be with, and her love of music is infectious. She is an excellent teacher for an older student, and I imagine for younger ones too.

Deanna was great! Nice, patient, encouraging, and knowledgeable. I learned basic technique which already has me feeling more comfortable. I'm looking forward to progressing and confident I've made the right choice.

Nicholas has been teaching my daughter vocal lessons for about 11 months and he’s fantastic!

She’s improved so much in 10 months! He’s awesome and delivers results! My daughter enjoys her lessons with him and she’s just 9 years old and has developed so much due to his mentor ship. My daughter also has an aptitude for singing and tends to catch on to his instructions quickly.

Erasmo is very patient with my 9 year old who had stopped his drums lessons for about a year and his technique of teaching is different from the previous teacher as in he's touching up on more basic techniques and working on fundamentals in addition to just practicing some songs every class. I think in the long run my son will benefit from that.

Music Theory and Ear-Training are specialties of mine. This is the best subject to learn if you're interested in making music without knowing songs/pieces (as in simply playing the instrument without needing a memorized piece in your head), as well as understanding why music sounds and works like it does.

Many may know the saying that music is the universal language of mankind, but most people probably don't know just how much music can function similar to a language. Knowing music theory gives you the opportunity to "translate" between musical "dialects." Perhaps you know guitar, but have trouble communicating to your bass player the progressions you play with a capo. Or a keyboardist that has hit a wall in trying to make sense of the timing your drummer is trying to get you to hit. Music theory gives you the foundational building blocks to speak the same musical language, regardless of your instrument. I like to take a simplistic approach to music theory that helps even brand new musicians quickly gain a solid understanding of the subject.

About Chris

A short history of my experience with music and education: The first instrument I learned to play was the guitar in 2001. I played the guitar on the worship team at FBC of Midway in Plant City, FL from 2001 to 2005. I began teaching private music lessons in 2003. I played bass guitar in

CHRIS was awesome!!! My first lesson was with a guitar that I’d had for years, he fixed the guitar so that I would have something to practice on, whilst he fixed the guitar he didn’t forget why he was there and went over notes and chords etc, After fixing my guitar we had time to go over the gchord and I pretty much had it as he was walking out the door. I’m very pleased!!!

Chris is a wonderful instructor. I took music recording lessons from him and it was very informative and relaxed.

"As Jim states on his bio, he teaches from age 8 and up. I'm one of his "up" students who's been playing guitar for a few years, but never took time to learn theory because I thought it was too confusing or difficult to learn. After being stuck in a rut for the past 30 years, I finally realized that I could be a guitar player, instead of just playing guitar, by understanding WHY I'm playing what I playing. I planned to take a few lessons to see how it would go. That was 4 months ago. Now when I pick up my guitar, I have a plan and am excited to learn more each week. Jim's approach to teaching theory makes it clear for anyone of any age or expertise. If you're young and want to learn the right way, Jim will teach you the right way. For us older folks, I found out you CAN teach an old dog new tricks... I highly recommend Jimmy!"

"Carolyn gave me a solid, accessible foundation of theory which I could directly apply to my audition situations. Instead of panicking when I get a piece of new music, I now see it as a treasure trove of information I now have the key to unlock. Thanks to her, I am an empowered actor, and that’s always a good thing!"
