I have just started guitar lessons with Stan and the lessons are going very well. It's exciting to be learning note reading which is something I have always wanted to do. Stan is thorough and clear in his instructions and I look forward to each lesson. I feel lucky to have Stan as my teacher.

Stan is very knowledgeable about singing, and he teaches more than just voice lessons. It seems like he looks for the best in you as an artist, and try to take it to another level. I'm a new student of his, and it's been great so far. Looking forward to the weekly lessons.

She is especially very kind and nurturing in an environment which could be quite intimidating for a beginner like me. You can tell she truly enjoys teaching and gets excited to see her pupil learn. I have learned so much in a short time."

"Over the course of several months, Omar guided me to a comfort level with guitar I never knew could come so quickly. Omar is engaging and knowledgable, combining practical guitar knowledge with bits of theory when I was interested in learning what's behind the nuts and bolts. He's flexible and open with his approach, tailoring it to my interests in music and also answering questions I had when buying my first guitar. And, he's a great guy! I would highly recommend Omar to other prospective students of any instrument."
