"Nathaniel taught my son who was a beginning player on the bass guitar. I couldn't be more please with the results. Nathaniel did all the normal teacher stuff--had a plan, had prepared goals, gave music homework, was timely--but on top of that he had a friendly, inviting personality that invited my son to want to spend time learning music. It was Nathaniel's happy, inviting attitude that really made things click during my son's lessons and I'm thankful he was willing to take him in as one of his students."

I am an adult who started taking a new instrument and just after a few weeks with him, I'm already able to play much more than I ever dreamed I would. He is down to earth and easy to get along with - but pushes you to always do better. I would recommend him to anyone looking to advance their skills or start from beginning like I have."
