Mike is an amazing teacher and a super talented musician! He's incredibly knowledgable, patient, and encouraging.

Mike is a talented player and teacher, with a deep appreciation for the many styles and genres of guitar playing. A lesson with him feels like jamming with a friend. I highly recommend him as a teacher.

Percussion is such a fun subject because of all the instruments you get to play! Whether you just want to learn congas, bongos, cajon, cowbell, or all of them, I'll guide you through the basic patterns, help you develop technique and improvisation ideas, and jam together during our lessons.

I have been teaching percussion for over 10 years. My lessons focus on technique and playing along with popular songs. Lessons will adjust according to the student's level, pace, and goals. If you'd like to learn all basic percussion instruments, we can develop a rotating schedule per instrument.

My goal for my students is to have an understanding on how to use their instrument, develop versatility, discover who they are as a musician, become independent learners, while having fun along the way!

My son really enjoys his lessons and likes how Joan helps him focus on technique.
John M.
Joan taught my son from first time to an advanced beginner. She was very patient and extremely helpful. My son was fully engaged in his lessons and always enjoyed his time with Joan. Joan was very dependable, always on time for lessons and always flexible with her scheduling. She also assisted in purchasing a drumset for my son. I would recommend Joan to anyone looking to learn the drums.

Carly
In just one lesson Shelby taught me so much! She really knows her stuff! She is a very supportive and encouraging teacher and coach. I really enjoy the way Shelby helps me work through my songs. She always starts with the technique and making sure I am able to sing the song. Then we work on stylizing the piece and the acting component. She has so many tips and tricks to get those high notes! I love working with Shelby and plan to continue doing so.

"I started lessons with Ahmad not knowing anything about guitar or how to read music. He was excited to start fresh with me and teach the basics. He is always patient and is excited about his job, which makes it fun for me. While I am still very much a beginner, I have noticed progression and owe it all to Ahmad. I am currently on a little break from playing, but I am looking forward to reaching out to Ahmad as soon as I can to start lessons again. If you love music and are interested in learning how to play, make the call to Ahmad - you will not be disappointed."
