He is very good with me. I'm not a very good student. I have bad habits and I'm overly sensitive to criticism, yet he has not made me feel bad at all about my playing if you want to call it that. I also have a short attention span and can't read music fluently. But his patience is much appreciated, and each week get a little better at it all. I recommend him to those trying their best to sound a little better.
Avery B.
It was really good information and I had a lot of fun.
Annie B.
I have been taking fiddle/violin lessons from Marc for a few months now, and it has been a great experience. He is very patient and keeps things fun by helping me learn pieces that I am interested in learning to play. I would highly recommend him for any instrument you are wanting to learn.

I came away from my lesson with James feeling so happy and knowing that he will be teaching and encouraging me all the way going forward. I am actually lost for words to express what an incredibly positive experience I had today. I am also looking forward to my grand daughter taking lessons from James now too. I feel I got lucky that James is the teacher that was found for me.

Picking up a guitar for the first time (or the first time in a while!) can be very exciting! My hope is that with the help of some lessons you can enjoy playing guitar so much that you never want to put it down. This is why I like to keep lessons laid back and flexible. Lessons are tailored for each student to make sure everyone can have the best experience possible. Your goals are extremely important when it comes to lessons because everyone has different goals.

What are your goals for taking lessons? It could be learning to play your favorite songs, learning to solo, how to write your own songs, advice for playing live or in a recording studio, how to get the sounds of your favorite guitar players. The list could go on and on. Whatever your goals might be, I want to help you achieve them! I love most styles of music and I’m happy to teach most genres but some of my favorites are rock, alternative, blues, pop, and funk.

About Zack

I play guitar and write music in a band called Rosewood Coast, and I’m employed as a Contemporary Band Leader at a church in Cincinnati, Ohio.

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.

About Trevor

No drums? No problem! We can get you started with a pair of sticks and a practice pad. Both can be purchased on Amazon for under $30. My name is Trevor and I’m excited to help you learn to play drums and percussion. I have over 12+ years of experience playing and 5 years teaching. I hold a Bache

"Fawn is the one who revolutionalized my voice. I was singing off pitch and she was able to get me completely on pitch. She helped me fine tune my songs and record my songs in the studio. Even though we are on different coasts and she was on the computer in the studio, she has an excellent ear and valuable input, and when I was off, she was able to get me back on track. She is honest and works easily and professionally with my producers and engineer and the end result is excellent. I performed 3 songs this year and was paid $400. I think that's pretty great for a beginner. If you have Fawn on your team, you're sure to be a success."
