Janeen has been working with my teenage daughter for less than a year. During that time, my daughter has made noticeable improvements with her singing and confidence. Janeen has also tapped in to my daughter's creative abilities and started teaching her to write her own songs. Janeen's ability to build relationships with her clients is what makes her shine above the rest. She is professional, experienced, knowledgeable, and shows great care and patience when mentoring my daughter. Singing with Janeen is more than just learning and enhancing a skill. Her mentorship also helps build my daughter's character.

Janeen was inspiring on visit 1! Looking forward to working with her. Thanks Janeen!

Neil is a great piano teacher. I took many years of lessons growing up and then stopped playing the piano for 10 years. I picked it up a year ago learning new pieces and hit a "wall" where I wasn't able to improve myself, so I wanted to find a teacher that could help. Neil has been great - proactively pointing out areas where I tense up or could use a different fingering, suggesting helpful sight reading pieces, and even helping me find a better keyboard for my own practice at home. He has a lot of experience and good advice.
Bill
I have the highest praise for Neil. I am an adult, and I studied for nine years as a child and started studying again about ten years ago and have studied with several teachers during that time. I work on some difficult pieces, and Neil can always explain to me how to play the passages I am having trouble with and make it seem easy. Also, he can demonstrate for me how something should be played because he is such an excellent pianist. I am so happy I found Neil, and highly recommend him.

I truly enjoy teaching. I've taught in the public school classroom for 11 years. Teaching music is so so much FUN! And it should be fun for the students to learn. When I'm teaching I tell all my students that if they don't enjoy and smile about something, then we need to change something.

Kevin is a great teacher - he has brought out the drummer in my 2nd grader, and he has been able to do this through Zoom, not even face to face. Highly recommended!

Kevin is an enthusiastic and professional teacher! He has built up my son's confidence, and given him opportunities to perform and hone his percussion skills. I highly recommend Kevin!

I was out of town when my 15-year old son had his lesson with Kevin, so I sent a text to my son to find out how it went. "He is the best guitar teacher ever!!" my son replied. I think that says it all.

Steven is an extremely well versed and educated guitar teacher. Both in person and online, Steven managed to meet the interests and push the knowledge of music notation no matter what style.

George
Robin is a very compassionate, patient teacher who truly cares about your success as a student. She's a highly skilled musician with a wonderful ear and she knew how to give specific, understandable guidance to help me learn the very complex art of singing. I came to her as a 61 year-old beginner with no singing experience. Robin always made me feel comfortable and was always supportive and understanding through all of my struggling and stumbling. With her kind support and expert training, I was able to take my singing way beyond my expectations. I highly recommend Robin, no matter what your age or skill level. She's a teacher with heart.

"Hannah's awesome! I contacted her mainly for songwriting feedback but also for guidance while applying and auditioning for BYU's commercial music program. She always went above and beyond in assisting me from songwriting, to voice lessons, to guidance with production and recording and navigating the local music scene. Hannah knows what she is talking about in both vocal and music techniques, as well as the business side of music. And even more important, she truly loves what she does and has a natural ability for teaching in a way that will help you grow immensely! If you are even slightly on the fence about taking lessons from her, don't be--you won't be disappointed!"
