I have been playing the conga and bingo drums since I was 11 years old and I teach by the ear which means listening to the sound of a tone or music. I try to stray away from teaching directly from the book or notes etc. but I do have experience in that. I’ve played with many bands and every time it’s always by year

Andy is great with our 3 kids (10, 7, and 5). He customized the lessons for them, while finding the right balance between structure and allowing them to explore the instrument. His patience and sense of humor provide a warm learning experience for our children. We are happy to have him as their teacher!

Awesome first lesson! A perfect fit for my piano goals! Andrew is really nice and asked a lot of great questions to figure out what I needed. I can’t wait until my next lesson!

This guy has it all. Professional player, expert instructor, great and humorous personality; he constantly instills motivation and convinces me that I can and will “get it”. Corey makes everything guitar fun and easy.
Michael
Corey is amazing! Highly recommended!
Dana
To play off what Chaz said, I'm a recovering trumpet player who initially tried my hand at the guitar about 5 years ago. Corey quickly figured out that my talent and background were better suited to the bass. There's been no turning back. Corey's a great teacher! He's always patient, he makes you work, and you enjoy the process. I'd give him more than 5 stars if I could!!

Peter has a great rapport with our daughter and is "meeting" her where she is in her interests. She loves Lord of the Rings--they've started on music from Lord of the Rings!
Wick A.
Great instructor. Friendly, easy to understand, talented and can teach piano, theory, composition, etc.
Susan
My 10 year old son loves playing little riffs on the piano but really didn't want lessons for fear it would be too much like school. Peter has been awesome about tailoring the lessons so that my son can choose the Music he likes and move forward from his place of interest. Peter is a skilled and gifted pianist, and my son is totally inspired to keep playing and put in the work to improve.

Keiko taught my husband and my daughter. Her approach was different for each and tailored to challenge but never pressure them. Her engaging style and good sense of humor made lessons fly by, and when it came time to practice, motivated them. As a person, she's wonderful too. As a teacher, she's a gift."

"Joshua is extremely talented in reaching the student at his/her level. He is extremely positive and looks to connect with his students to give them a panoramic view of music in general and then drills down to how that would relate to the drums.
My son is always excite to see Joshua and looks forward to each lesson. Joshua takes the work out of the lesson and lets the student have fun and explore, all the while teaching basics without it being apparent to the student!

Just a really awesome person and instructor!
