Brian is an excellent teacher. His tone and clarity is fantastic, which is important as a student to hear for emulation purposes. He has a great handle on music theory and how to fundamentally make good sound, resulting in pleasing to listen to music.

Bgcheck Background Checked


I've been teaching cello for 10 years and my students have gone on to participate in All-State orchestra, and play in professional orchestras. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to produce sound and play simple songs and as time goes on you'll be able to read music fluently and perform with ease. I specialize in Classical, and typically use Suzuki and Klengal scale books. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

About Byron

I love music. I love it so much that I have made it my career. I have been playing the cello for over 20 years and have studied in universities since 2002. In that time, I have worked extensively with great artists such as, Rhonda Rider, Joel Krosnick, Andy Mark, Nicholas Tzavares, and Mark Steinbe

Honestly could not ask for a better teacher. I was struggling to find a teacher in the area and boy did I pretty much hit the jackpot. Great teacher, super intelligent and understanding. I am a beginner but would highly recommend him to anyone. Not only does Byron play beautifully but he knows exactly what and how to teach you. Im always excited for my next lesson, so you should contact him and set one up too!

He is an awesome instructor. He teaches the details that have really made a difference in my playing and has made it easier to practice. I like the fact that he is able to explain clearly what to do, why it should be done a particular way, and great visual explanations that help me understand what I need to do.

I will teach you how to read, analyze, and compose music. Investing in the knowledge of music theory will help you to understand the complexities of musical compositions. Learning music theory helps any musician gain a greater appreciation and knowledge of their craft.

Hailey is also a great great teacher, willing to pinpoint my strengths and weaknesses, highlight the strengths and then gently promote the weaknesses to help me be a better singer. Which is saying a tremendous amount, because my musical acumen/confidence/ability was a lot lower 2 months ago than it is now that I have worked with Hailey since then. Thanks!

Hailey has been the perfect piano teacher for our 10 year old daughter. She chooses songs, such as Disney music, that excite my daughter to learn, she establishes a structured practice schedule so my daughter makes practice part of her week, and most importantly she cares about her students and gets to know them as a person not just a piano student. My daughter looks forward to her piano lessons each week and we've seen great progress!

I have been teaching music for over 5 years and I love working with beginning and intermediate piano players and horn players of all levels. I realize that each student is unique and always approach individual lessons with my student's particular goals in mind. I have a basic curriculum that I use in order to build a solid musical foundation for my students, but I am open to working on whatever kind of music or repertoire that they may enjoy. It is always exciting to me when a student learns a new skill that helps them in their musical expression or achieves a goal (such as playing a song they really enjoy) that gives them a little extra fulfillment in life.

About Rachel

I am a freelance horn player with a passion for teaching both horn and piano. I have a Bachelor's of Music from The University of Arizona and a Master's of Music from California State University Long Beach. I have been teaching privately and in group settings for over 5 years and really enjoy g

I studied viola with a myriad of amazing teachers that really cared about my future.

I have taken many pedagogy classes in college and after.

I LOVE the Suzuki method because it introduces not just technique but how to "make" music. Such as phrasing and dynamics.

I just moved back from Japan after teaching there for 4 years.
