I hope to bring positive energy and insight to all my students’ lessons and help them grow. I am interested in working with students of all ages, and enjoy helping with everything — learning how to sing or improve vocal technique, learning how to play piano, cover favorite artists, perform, record, navigate ProTools of Logic or digital/analog synths. I you have a specific goal or project in mind, long or short term I'd love to help!

Marie has helped me with refining my sound and getting back into singing with proper technique. Her feedback is constructive and she has an intuition for how to coach a vocalist even over Zoom. Fantastic!

"My name is Lily. I am 6 years old. I think Marie is an awesome piano teacher because she is kind, focused, patient, and nice. And also, I really, really, really like her singing voice and I like it when she sings along when I play. I feel happy with her as my teacher because after each lesson, I feel more focused. Thank you, Marie!!"

I perform rock, gospel, funk, jazz, country, and pop music for audiences all over and can help students identify specific, tailored, course work to help them in whatever genre.

My goal is to help students of all ages and abilities sift through the ocean of content to find the *right* challenges for them so they can play what they want to play.

I thought I wasn’t going to be able learn how to play drums and then I met Max! Very patient person and easily helped me unlock the door into drumming. Made everything clear to me and broke it down to where I was able to understand. Highly recommend, Thank you Max!
Emmie
Max is an amazing teacher. He is an outstanding, patient,
and compassionate teacher. His lessons were so well tailored to my needs. Each class addressed specific needs and goals of mine. Max is a great drummer and wonderful teacher, highly recommend.
Benji
I was a bit nervous about taking lessons as I had not played drums in front of anyone before. My first lesson was surprisingly a very comfortable expereience and something that I would definitely recommend if you are on the fence. I have been playing for about a year and felt like I wasn't progressing with YouTube tutorials anymore. Max has really been helping to take me to a new skill level!

Sylivan is a great teacher with great personality. He was there to help me not only when I struggled with music and guitar but also when I felt down. I asked him why he cared so much and he told me a healthy mind is most important which helps in music learning =) Sylivan is also patient; even sometimes I can't stand myself but he was there to help me to learn lol He has passion in teaching and you can see it once he's in action.

I understand so much more about music, composition, playing in ensembles, among other aspects of making music thanks to him. He was always patient with me and found ways to make me excited about playing everyday-even if my assignments were practicing difficult chords or scales. Truly a fantastic musician and leader."

He starts with your big picture goals and breaks them down into actionable steps that you can take feeling like it's going somewhere. This makes for way more efficient and exciting practice sessions.
