Great teacher! Kellen has made me really excited about the guitar again.
Jon
Kellen is a great instructor. He explains musical ideas in an way that I qet quickly. I'll show him a song and he'll pick it up and teach it to me right away. I would definitely recommend him!
Susan
I had been playing guitar for a while, mostly learning songs and chord changes on my own. I wanted to take lessons to work on composing my own songs, and this is where Kellen really helped me. He had a lot of ideas and suggestions that were really helpful in trying to create a unique composing style. He's a trained musician, and it shows when he helps me with music theory and exposing me to lots of different styles of music.

Ryan was patient and professional. He takes time to customize his teaching methods to best suit your learning goals and capabilities.

Uh Ryan is great. Been doing it on my own for 3 months and can scale and vibrato but knew I needed hands on help. Within just the first two classes he made wonderful critique adjustemnts that caused immediate results. Excited for more.
Michel C.
Today was my third lesson with Ryan. He's easy to follow, and he's patient with me which is great. He's allowing me to go at my own speed, and we are moving right along. He doesn't push, and he's encouraging which helps keep me motivated. He's funny and we get along just great. He played a little for me at my last session at my request, and it brought me to tears. He plays beautifully! I look forward to my sessions.

I focus lessons highlighting any genre around technique. Cultivating one's technique establishes good habits regarding things like breath, and posture, which will help maintain a singers overall vocal health. In addition to classical repertoire I have experience working with musical theater, pop, jazz, soul, and country.

Chelsea is a tremendous teacher, with sympathy and patience for my absurd schedule and difficulty reading music.
Elian S.
I had a really great time and she explained so much to me that I wasn't really clear on.
Fiona C.
I needed last minute coaching for an upcoming audition and was feeling unprepared and frazzled. Chelsea easily knew what I needed. She made recommendations, was wonderfully engaging, and her insight and ear highlighted some important tweaks that I would have overlooked in my haste to prepare. After just one session I felt clearer, calmer, and considerably more confident. Bonus: Chelsea is incredibly kind, fun to work with and makes you feel you already know one another. Chelsea has my highest recommendation

Whether you ultimately want to accompany your lead vocal, jam with others, or to be a wailing lead guitarist, you can, at anytime, write your own unique song. So where do you begin? How do you write a song? Here' …
