Garrett, is very knowledgeable, professional, patient and thorough. He continuously checks for understanding and is enthusiastic and passionate about what he does. My son had his first lesson and is very excited and is looking forward to his future lessons!

Garrett was patient, kind, and professional when he meet with my son virtually. I was a little worried about how the meet was going to go because it was virtual; however, he did an excellent job rearranging the camera whenever he needed to provide the appropriate angles for my son to learn.

The session didnt happen. I think this website is possibly of a con. I'll be requesting my money back for the 5 sessions bought.

Raymond is a nice and a great teacher for our 11 yr old grandson. He is patient and fun. But he gets our grandson to focus when GS gets distracted. I feel that Raymond is teaching wholeheartedly and really it’s up to the student with how far and fast he wants to go.

Vaughn was very insightful during his teachings for Music Production. There are a lot of hidden secrets when it comes to engineering and producing music and he really helped clarify those things. He'll push you creatively and help you understand the plethora of tools software has to offer.
Sara Thomas
As someone who knows nothing about music production. Vaughn helped me have a better understanding of my 3rd party plugins as well as plugins within my DAW. He is freakishly knowledgeable on the topic.

James is a really great guitar player and I recommend him if you want to learn. Each week I give him a song I want to learn and after a little practice I am able to play it. I also like his fun videos and music he puts up on the screen for me.
Debbie
My daughter really enjoys taking flute lessons from James. We have been taking lessons online for 6 months and she is already playing so well. I heard flute is pretty hard to learn, but James makes it seem so easy and fun.

James is an AWESOME tuba player and teacher. I have gotten so much better at playing since I started taking lessons from him!

"Robert is amazing at what he does. His taste in music is excellent, he loves DJing, and his excitement is infectious. He’s a natural-born leader/teacher and he’s just super fun to work with. The full range of things you can do with a DJ controller can be overwhelming. Robert will save you a lot of time by getting you focused on the essentials. He is detail-oriented, and his feedback is specific and actionable. He’ll point out things that weren’t even on your radar, and you’ll be better for it. Hopefully, you’ll be working with Michael as well. He’s a technical master, has an encyclopedic knowledge of all things funky and fresh, and he’s the nicest guy. I'm very happy to be working with these guys."
