I was fortunate enough to record with a producer from Dark Horse studios in Nashville, TN who taught me everything he was doing in the recording process. Since then, I have put quite a bit of independent study and practice into recording on my own.

About Joe

I absolutely love teaching music! After over 20 years of teaching, performing, writing, and recording in all styles/genres, it continues to be a great adventure. It is a joy to pass this on to others...especially seeing my students that never touched the instrument going on to be very proficient

Heinrich is a great teacher and a great person!
He knows so much and is so enthusiastic and patient while teaching. He has a lot of experience and he is a warm-hearted person, definitely the kind of person you wanna spend your time with :-)
Demitri Kesoglides
Heinrich was hands-down one of the best music instructors I've ever had. He has such a celebrated history as a producer and engineer, yet he still remains humble in the teaching environment with his students. He also adapts to specific learning styles and knows how to get through to you if you have difficulty with a particular topic or module. He's also a geuine, great guy - once you are his student he has no problem helping you or giving you advice long after his course is completed. To this day my brother and I still consider him a friend and a mentor. Highly highly recommended!
Andrew
I learned Maschine and Native Instruments MK3 from Heinrich and he knows his stuff!!! He is very patient and very supportive. He is one of the few official Maschine experts who are available to teach.

Maschine is not easy to learn but Heinrich tried to simplify topics into something easy to understand. He was open and flexible to my learning style and how I wanted to approach my lessons. That's the biggest benefit to private lessons with Heinrich!

I read the review by Cezanne about Heinrich not having enough interaction with students and that was not my experience. In fact, I felt sometimes I got too much time with him (sorry Heinrich, sometimes you talk a lot haha!). Don't get me wrong, the things he had to say were very valuable, I can just be too eager sometimes to move on from a topic so that's really on me and not Heinrich. Any time I had questions, I could text him and if it was too much to text back, he would call me right away.

Heinrich is also very chill and relaxed when it comes to working with you to find a good time to meet up for a lesson.

I started learning Ukulele with Kevin and then picked up Guitar lately, Kevin has a systematic way of teaching, instead of covering each and every chords, he summarizes them by different shapes, and also their variations, so you can memorize the basics and find their "relative" chords easier. He also taught music theories, how each chord is formed, and if you want to play a specific song, he's also glad to help on finding the exact chord and transfer them into different notes that suits you. Definitely have your notebook ready since there's a lot to learn. The harder thing for myself is with the online class, it's not as efficient as a face-to-face one, I also tend to be less motivated to practise but you ought to just find your own motivation!
Jennifer Closson
I have been involved in singing for many years now and I can tell you that Kevin knows what he is doing with his special skills teaching voice and guitar. I feel lucky to have found him and I hope to continue learning from him for a long time.
Anthony
Kevin offers helpful advice and insight. An instructor with a deep understanding of music, he demonstrates a great ability to guide new students. He brought clarity to problems I experienced as a new guitar player. I highly recommend inviting Kevin into your music journey.

"I really enjoy learning from Russ. He is good at relating things back to a way I can understand and improve. He is so versatile in his music knowledge that I can litterally throw anything his way that I'm curious about and he points me in the right direction. I've taken guitar, bass, vocal, and even production lessons from Russ. By far the most value I have ever got from an instructor. At first I was a little hesitant because of the higher price than others, but when you start noticing that you are learning stuff other teachers had no idea about, it makes sense to pay a little more for the quality you get out of his lessons. Thanks Russ for all the lessons over the last few years! Wouldn't be where I am today without ya!"

"Hey Seth, Thank you so much for the great work you did engineering the recordings for Martini & Olive. We shot the videos today and the tracks were perfect. Had a blast working with you and hope to create more music with you soon. And your Triumph was pretty terrific a well. Cheers

Had a great recording session with Seth this week. He gave us good direction and really finessed our vocals and timing on the final recordings. Thank you Seth!

-Judy of Martini and Olive
Seth worked with us (Martini & Olive) engineering our Medleys — and he was patient inciteful and so helpful — massaging our intricate comedy melodies for our music video. We are a quirky fast funny funky lounge act and he understood our concerns musically and comically. We spent hours with him and he was a joy the entire time. Thanks Seth!"

"My son learned how to effectively play in a band

My son has been taking guitar lessons from Tim for over a year now. I have been very pleased with the progress my son is making. Tim makes my son feel very comfortable, and is more than willing to work with him in any area where he shows an interest. Tim is personable and patient.

Tim is quite flexible with time. He has kindly worked around our schedule whenever necessary. His fees are quite reasonable, and he always errs in our favor in regard to time.

Tim is a great guitar player himself with a true love for the instrument, which shows in his teaching. He was invaluable in helping us pick a reasonably priced, yet quality guitar for our son.

He has taught our son any song my son hears on the radio note for note a real gem.We are quite pleased with Tim's teaching, and highly recommend him."
