Jessica is a professional. Her studio is set up to accommodate a student in maximum privacy and comfort. She Is a lovely young woman who obviously enjoys her craft and is skilled at teaching in a compassionate way yet sets a high standard for her student. It would be important for a student to be self-motivated to PRACTICE diligently. Jessica does not demand that a student practice, but expects that her student will have practiced. I compliment her teaching. One final note: she is kind.

I am very knowledgeable in both Advanced Classical and Advanced Jazz Theory, and can teach all levels including college music undergraduate theory. Lessons are designed to ensure the student completely understands the theory and how it can be used artistically. Lessons are very helpful for AP music theory students and undergraduate music students studying classical and/or Jazz theory.

Christine
Joey is the best kind of teacher--he challenges my son and makes it fun for him. He pushes my son outside of his comfort zone, but in a good way. My son's technique and tone have improved so much. And best of all, he's really enjoying Joey as his teacher!
Suzie
Joey has been teaching piano to my 9 year old son for almost a year now. We are very happy with the relationship our son and Joey have, and with our son’s progress. My husband and I both studied music in college, and we’ve both been music teachers at various points in our careers. We know a solid teacher when we see one. Joey somehow manages to set high expectations for our son while remaining laid back and fun. He lets our son explore different types of music as our son’s interest changes. We find that flexibility refreshing and necessary to keep young kids interested. Out of all his activities, our son loves piano the most, and a lot of that has to do with the quality of teaching he receives from Joey. Speaking of flexibility, Joey has adapted his teaching seamlessly to teaching via zoom (his lessons were previously taught in our home), and even put together a lovely virtual recital for all the kids in his studio during the covid-19 social distancing situation. We heard about Joey from friends, and continue to recommend him to others.
Andrea
Joey is knowledgable and talented in his craft. My energetic five year old son looks forward to his lessons each week. Joey is an experienced teacher, his lesson structure and management skills keep my son on task and learning. He is patient and flexible. We highly recommend Joey as a music teacher. These lessons are an investment in our child’s future and we consider ourselves extremely lucky to have found Joey.

Music theory at it's core is a way to analyze and talk about music. It is often compared to learning to write - you need to start by learning your letters, then putting those letters together into words. This can often make learning and applying music theory very boring however - imagine having to learn the whole alphabet before learning to spell "cat." It isn't necessary!

In music theory lessons with me, you'll learn to start applying concepts from the very beginning, slowly adding to your knowledge as we go. I also teach my students to think critically about the music they're looking at - not only being able to apply the concept's learned, but thinking about the why. What does this add to the phrase, why did the composer do this? How does this enhance or detract from the piece, and how can this be conveyed in performance?

Music theory is much more interesting, engaging, and useful than most students think. I aim to teach it from the very beginning in a way that shows students ...

"James is a highly qualified instructor and was very thoughtful in answering my questions. I was impressed with the amount of resources he had on hand, such as worksheets, method books, sheet music, etc. I would definitely recommend James for anyone curious about learning music theory and/or the many instruments he plays."

"As a preface, I am a beginner-intermediate music producer, so very much of what I make is still rather amateur. I have spent tens of hours watching different YouTube videos and reading blogs about music production trying to learn how to get better. If I had to put a time frame, I'd say I've been producing as a hobby for about 4 years now.

Anyway, I had a 1-hour lesson with Mark and I feel like I learned more about mixing in that 1-hour than I have in the months watching YouTube videos. Mark is super knowledgeable about music production and its techniques and he had answers to all of my questions. If you're on the fence about booking, I would highly suggest booking with Mark as he is professional, knowledgable, and easy to understand as he breaks down his methods in a beginner-friendly manner - things some other producer mentors struggle with I feel.

I would definitely book again with Mark in the future. If you want to level up your production, Mark is your best bet."

Not only that but he makes sure you have fun! Whenever he’s teaching I can’t help but have fun. He’s always cracking jokes and making you feel comfortable. I love music lessons with him.
