Roger H.
He is very good with me. I'm not a very good student. I have bad habits and I'm overly sensitive to criticism, yet he has not made me feel bad at all about my playing if you want to call it that. I also have a short attention span and can't read music fluently. But his patience is much appreciated, and each week get a little better at it all. I recommend him to those trying their best to sound a little better.
Avery B.
It was really good information and I had a lot of fun.
Annie B.
I have been taking fiddle/violin lessons from Marc for a few months now, and it has been a great experience. He is very patient and keeps things fun by helping me learn pieces that I am interested in learning to play. I would highly recommend him for any instrument you are wanting to learn.

I am a part-time musician, currently playing in two bands as a rhythm/lead guitarist and lead singer. Being able to create and express yourself through the musical art form is, in my opinion one of the most therapeutic, empowering, and beautiful experiences in life. My passion for teaching stems from my own experience when starting to play the guitar. Unlike most musicians, I started relatively later in life in my mid 20's. I was eager to learn but struggled to find lessons and teachers that could make music theory and its application to the instrument make sense. After countless hours spent on YouTube, online memberships, and group lessons, I finally found an instructor who has been my mentor for the past 4 years, who was able to make music theory interesting and easily applicable. As a result I was able to build off this invaluable gift of knowledge, find my own style and sound, as well as a unique approach to sharing this wisdom with others.

I take a streamlined approach in ...

We've got to be able to communicate musically as step one. Furthermore you will need a basic understanding of the guitar. I will explain both of these essential steps in an easy to understand fashion the works best for you. Next we will apply what we have learned to learning a simple song you like. Where we go from there depends how your personal goals and how much time you have to practice.

About Damon

I am easy going, friendly, patient and professional. I believe in making music lessons fun and effective. Knowing an instrument is a skill you will have for the rest of your life. I aim to get my students playing fun songs and knowledgable about music ASAP.

Ray is an amazing teacher. My 11-year-old has high-functioning autism and has a great interest in learning music. I was hesitant to hire just any teacher, as many teachers don't have the patience and understanding to work with special needs kids. However, Ray has been not only patient, but he has an exceptional way of teaching my son in a way that he would understand and retain the information. Ray is creative, intuitive, and experienced. My son is very happy and enjoys the lesson every single time. Thanks Ray.

Awesome!!!!!!!! So sweet! Cool hair : ))

"My son has taken guitar from Phil for 4 years - first, in-person, and now online during COVID. Phil has made the transition seamless, and has remained flexible to meet any needs we’ve had. He is a low-pressure, easy-going teacher, and always finds music that my son thinks is cool to work on. My son backs away from any activity where he feels pressured to compete, so Phil has met him where he is and lets him be in control of the pace. Phil’s style has ensured that guitar will be a lifelong pastime for my son!"
