I specialize in chord theory, i.e how chords are built from simple power chords to 7th, 9th, 11th , 13th major, minor , diminished and augmented chords and how you can recognize chord progressions and be able to tell from those chord progressions exactly which scale/mode to play with any chord progression. I will also teach you the characteristics of what each individual note from any scale is used for.

I have been seeing Jeff for about 3 years. I was an old folkie - with no time to practice - for about 50 years, but finally my wife bought me some lessons when I retired. Hit it off with Jeff immediately. He really knows the music I want - which in my case is classic rock - but he can do pretty much anything you need. Still give him 5 stars!
Richard R.
I immediately felt at ease with Jeff and it did not take him long to figure me out and point me in the right direction. Looking forward to many more lessons with him. I wish I lived here so it could be on a more regular basis. But happy with what I CAN get. Thanks Jeff!

My Aunty is turning 80 this weekend and I decided to learn how to play Happy Birthday on the ukulele as a surprise for her. Jeff not only helped me accomplish my goal but also got me started on other songs as well. His patience and enthusiastic personality made the lessons not ony productive but personable as well!!! 2 thumbs up to an awesome instructor!!!!!

We will do vocal exercises to warm up, extend your range, and improve the quality of your tone. I use a variety of techniques that are applicable to the styles of pop, rock, opera, musical theater and jazz - pretty much every genre! I will work with with you on material that you are inspired to sing, both the technical and creative aspects. In addition, I can help you prepare for auditions, build your repertoire or get your material ready for an important gig!

Lynn is a fantastic teacher! She effortlessly bridges genres and styles. She is personable, dedicated and inspiring. We are incredibly fortunate to have found her.
Chris
Lynn is stellar. Her background and training are substantial and impressive. She is prompt, courteous, calm and absolutely wonderful with our daughter (Age 9) who has challenges focusing and staying on task. Lynn is kind, but navigates the lessons confidently, fluidly and with a focused energy. She works with our daughter's playfulness, incorporates humor and positive, encouraging energy into every lesson. Our daughter has shown signs of great improvement with Lynn. Lynn assigns tasks and practicing points each week for our daughter to work on which are balanced and also bring in a component of improvisation, which is SO helpful for kids who have challenges with focusing. Lynn is awesome, highly recommend!
Jessica
Lynn is amazing!! Not only do my children love her as a person (they literally wait at the window on Wednesday nights) but she knows how to keep them engaged and interested in learning throughout their lessons. My son has learned to play actual songs in less than 10 lessons. Can't recommend her enough!

My daughter has been taking lessons with Mikaela for 3 years and has been thriving! Mikaela is kind and friendly while holding her students to high standards. They all clearly enjoy themselves and it is rewarding to see them all progress from one recital to the next. She comes to the house to give lessons but now teaches through zoom due to the pandemic. Highly recommended!!!
Margot B.
Our daughter had her first lesson yesterday and loved it and Mikaela. She said it was the best day ever and can't wait for her next lesson next week! Mikaela obviously has experience teaching children and make our daughter feel at ease and comfortable. Most of the first lesson seemed to be focused on proper instrument and handling, which makes sense. It can take years to undo poor posture and position if not begun correctly. Mikaela explained what she was doing and why, and made sure our daughter understood everything as she went along. Thank you for a first great experience!
Daniel S.
Mikaela is not only an excellent musician but an outstanding music teacher, a rare combination. I have been taking violin lessons from her for quite some time now, and I am amazed at how much of a difference she has made in my efforts to pick up the instrument as a total beginner.

She has great observational abilities to immediately notice errors in form or movement, all the while maintaining calm and complete patience. She also has gift for suggesting corrections with analogy and imagery that has been very helpful in my experience.

I would highly recommend her.

Michael has gone above and beyond helping me to find my voice! It's incredible to hear how far I've come from some of my earlier recordings to now. Unbelievable!

He can do lessons online or in-person, but I highly recommend doing in-person lessons to be able to hear the more intricate sounds of your own voice and to learn from listening to his.

Mr. Cooper is very patient with the student and stresses on learning the correct technique while playing the piano. He is very respectful and encouraging and sets goals for the student to achieve along the way. He pays attention to very small details and works with the student till they master each piece.
