I've been taking lessons from Steven for I think two years now and he's helped me so much not only in reading music but also in ear training and in my song writing. He's incredibly patient and fun to work with. He also has a really nice cat.

Talented teachers are rare. Like a great coach i sports... the coach doesn’t need to be the top athlete in his field to know how to teach each team member to hone their best abilities, he just has to know and see how to teach you how to get there. Being an outstanding teacher is a great talent all in itself... and that is Jesse. He has that quality and ability to lead, focus and take you where you want to go.

Jesse has given directions on how to successfully become a better musician. His approach and explanation on musical theories was much more understandable than what I was previously reading. Overall, I found the lessons to be very usefull.

We did online tonight per my request. Michael is so patient and encouraging and he answers my questions that are endless. I feel hopeful that I am learning the correct form and things I definitely would not pick up just trying to teach myself through the book. Thank you Michael!

I'm a versatile performing musician and composer myself and so love to teach all styles including classical, jazz, rock, blues and more! We have a student showcase party every year where all the students get together to perform and showcase their skills. Performing, like everything else in music, is actually really easy once you become familiar with it! We learn from the beginning that music is all about having fun and bringing more joy and fulfillment into your life!

My career in music began at an early age (four!) with classical piano lessons until the age of thirteen. After expanding my musical horizons in high school listening to jazz, blues and rock I attended Cabrillo College in Aptos, CA where I studied jazz & music theory with renowned jazz educator Ray B

I have a very detailed curriculum for my students. For younger players, it will go hand-in-hand with what is being taught at their school. We will be playing jazz and classical music as well as etudes and exercises to build technique. I also like to have my students pick a piece themselves so they can play what THEY want to play. Whatever the student's goal is for saxophone, I am there to guide the way!

I am a beginner saxophone player and Stephen's lesson has been really good for me. He is able to pace his lessons based on my needs and I really like how he assigns practice material to work on before our next lesson. We always start off each lesson with reviewing the practice material and he always gives me detailed feedback and is really patient even if I was not able to master the practice material. He also lets me bring songs I want to learn and guides me through it. I look forward to our lessons every week. I would recommend Stephen to anyone who is looking to get better at playing saxophone.

"To Whom It May Concern:

It has been a pleasure to have Ms. Leeora K. teach my son how to play piano for two years. My son developed a positive relationship with Ms. K. He excelled in piano under her direction. Ms. K. is a responsible, kind, thoughtful, and professional piano instructor that we were blessed to have worked with. I appreciate that Ms. K. is passionate and caring about teaching my son and others how to play the piano.

I believe that Ms. K. would make an excellent candidate for any work position that she seeks because she is a friendly, helpful, and reliable person. I highly recommend Ms. K! Please feel free to contact me if you should need further information.


Thank you,

Maureen Flaherty"

"My son takes beginning band with Nick. This group of very young players is learning how to hear a piece of music, break it down, play it together, and make it their own. Along the way, Mr. Nick teaches them theory, technique, and joy in playing music. Nick has the patience of a saint. His expertise is in guitar and banjo, but he knows his way around the whole band, and can teach rhythm and technique on a wide range of instruments. I highly recommend. Note, we’ve done lessons both on line and in person. Both were good."
