Kyle is a great piano teacher! He is very patient with my 12-year old son. Just yesterday he referred to him as “fun Kyle” because he teaches him small songs on the side that he can show friends and family or are for upcoming holidays. He’s always punctual and respectful of our family and home. I’m grateful to have found him!

Kyle is patient and a great instructor.

I teach you to be a musician, not just an instrumentalist. There is a huge difference. I give you material to learn while doing my best to make it fun as well. I teach you the basics and build on that foundation. You can learn the material as fast or as slow as you want. However, it is not a canned approach because every student is unique and your learning styles reflect that. My goal is your success, truly!

About Jerry

Jerry is a wonderful instructor. I wasn’t sure how online lessons would go but they have been seamless and fun and my son is making progress with the bugle. I would highly recommend this format and this teacher. The convenience and quality of instruction are excellent. We are signing up for more lessons and may move on to another instrument once my son feels confident on the bugle.

Ian is fantastic teacher. He was so patient with my toddler daughter. And when she became fuzzy during the class, Ian could be so creative to always come out with a way to calm her down and redirect her attention to other musical things. I would love him to be my daughter’s music teacher for as long as possible if I did not have to move.

Ian is very knowledgeable and is great in explaining theory and great in demonstrating so you can understand.

Jenny is an Ohio based flutist with over 20 years’ experience teaching flute and piccolo. She has 10 years’ experience at the collegiate level. She enjoys teaching at all levels, from beginner through advanced, and has taught a wide range of ages from 8 to 70. From introducing students to the flute and teaching them their first songs as a beginner, to preparing them for auditions, recitals, honor bands, and much more as an advanced player, I love helping students enjoy the process of learning an instrument and being able to see them grow and achieve their goals. I love that each student brings unique strengths to each lesson and I tailor the lesson to the student’s needs and learning styles.

About Jenny

I have over 20 years’ experience teaching flute and piccolo and currently teach at two local colleges. I enjoy teaching at all levels, from beginner through advanced. At the Beginner level, I get to introduce students to the instrument. This is one of my favorite parts because every new piece

I was nervous to have a lesson with private teacher and was petrified the first day when she asked me to play for her, but I was surprised by how supportive and reinforcing she was. She teaches in a very comfortable, positive, and engaging way. Not only does she adapt her teaching to "you," but she puts a lot of effort in her students. She teaches at a university, but puts just as much passion and care into her private students. I personally credit her to preparing me for college and building me into the musician I am today. I highly recommend her to anybody- at all levels! :)
Annette
Jenny is a kind and strong teacher. I truly enjoyed my lessons with her as I studied flute. She is an asset to the community for many reasons, but her love for education is superb.
Luane
It is with great pleasure for me to recommend Jenny as a flute instructor. I am one of her advanced and more mature students (I didn't want to say old lol! ). I graduated with a BM and have taught elementary music for 37 years. Jenny is creative, intuitive and compassionate. She has a thirst for knowledge and a great passion for teaching! She is always searching for new and innovative ways of teaching musical concepts. I am amazed how she is able to be so expressive in the way that she explains how to play expressively! In the short time that I have been taking lessons from Jenny I have experienced great improvement on all levels of my flute playing. Her “bag of tricks” appear to be endless! In my humble opinion I feel Jenny has all the qualities of a master teacher! I always look forward for my lessons with her!

I've had a lifetime of experience teaching private lessons on the harmonica and have the skills it takes to help you through the process of learning to play in a fun, relaxed atmosphere. I've been a full time musician my entire adult life teaching and performing on stage, the studio and the classroom.

About Clint

"The Harmonica is my specialty as a professional performer and teacher. It's not my 2nd or 3rd instrument, but my primary one that I've spent a lifetime mastering. I've been teaching, performing and recording on the harmonica for over 30 years and I'm an expert on both the chromatic harmonica and t

I'm 70 and never had formal training. Have been playing by ear. Clint is beginning to take me from there through the basics that I need to improve on what I can do.
Gopal R.
Clint is a fantastic teacher who has a deep understanding of the basics, technique, and various styles. He's really good in teaching a novice like me who's learning western style music for the first time. As with any learning, it's important to connect with a teacher so the learning becomes fruitful, and Clint connects so well to a student. Would highly recommend Clint as a harmonica teacher.

"Ferenc has taught my 9 year old son Ken for a year and a half, and my husband and I are very pleased with the results. Our son is high energy, but Ferenc has the patience of a saint and works with him carefully and calmly. Ken's focus and attention span have grown under Ferenc's instruction, and it's been a joy watching the music develop!

Ferenc was also able to help me develop vibrato, something my original violin instructor was unable to achieve during the 7 years I had instruction.

We highly recommend him."

"Andree-Ann is a great teacher! I hadn't formally played piano in about twenty years when I decided to start taking lessons again. It's like she picked me up and scrubbed all the rust off and now I'm playing better than I think I ever played. She's super patient, breaks the music down into digestible parts, tells you what you need to work on but also acknowledges your improvements and the things you've done well. As an adult learner, the pieces I'm working on is mostly self-directed with her guidance, which is cool. I would totally recommend her."

"Lawrence is an incredible singer & coach. Although nervous in my first lesson I felt at ease rather quickly. He asked my experience & goals then we began. A great intro. He taught me exersizes & we sang scales & jumped in to singing a song. He was patient with me and helped me navigate the song line for line. He suggested songs to take home and practice while also considering songs I want to learn, if I'd like to perform them etc. I found him after weeks of research. He was flexible with my schedule & meeting location. I think his style and passion will take me where I need to go. I look forward to continuing lessons with him."
