I believe every student is a unique subject and has specific needs and strengths, and so, I don't subscribe to a pre-defined method of teaching. The teaching method, or methods, will differ from person to person, and more than likely will change and evolve as the student advances and grows. I have worked with absolute beginners from all ages and backgrounds as well as advanced and professional students, and from that, I've learned that one of the biggest strengths of my teaching is adaptability and relatability when it comes to issues the student might encounter.

Both boys loved taking lessons with Tyler and looked forward to the lesson each week. Tyler was very professional in his communication and was super easy to work with. I would highly recommend Tyler."

"I am a Retired Federal Special Agent and I was born in Glasgow, Scotland. I've always wanted to learn how to play the Highland Bagpipes. I met William a few years ago and he has made my dream come true. William is a caring and patient instructor. He will teach you all details and techniques of playing the instrument and how to play the tunes correctly. William will take a complicated piece of music and will show you an easy path to successful completion of of playing the tune. I have seen William teach all ages and genders and special needs students and all have been successful musicians. William has transformed this hard headed student from a person that could not read music to a performing as a band member with the Tucson Highlanders Pipe band. I STRONGLY recommend William as a Bagpipe Instructor."

"My son Nick, who is 11 years old, began his journey on the saxophone with Matt and he has had a great experience. In just a few short months, Nick has improved tremendously. Matt is very patient and has a great style, teaching Nick to read music, play scales, and learn fun tunes. He's also taught Nick the best way to learn a tune, focusing on the hard measures first and repeating them, then moving back to the tune as a whole. Nick has enjoyed the challenge!"

"I was a little hesitant about finding a music teacher for my 11 year old daughter via website, but thought why not give it a try. I looked through the teacher profiles and found Fawn. I felt she may be the best match for her and she is! Fawn instructs voice and piano. We wanted piano lessons and she also did some voice with her, which my daughter would never have tried on her own-she loved it! So Fawn took her out of her bashful box and introduced her to something new! Fawn is patient, kind, understanding, skilled and gives clear direction. We love Fawn."

"I developed a desire later in life to learn how to play jazz and blues piano. I was very fortunate to start learning from Mike. He started me out with basic blues and over time I progressed into many of the jazz standards. Because he is also an accomplished guitar player, at all his lessons, he would accompany me while I played the new piece of music I was learning. He also does this if you are learning the guitar. This was very helpful in giving me a more complete musical experience, as I also learned to hear and play with other musicians. He is an extremely patient and upbeat instructor, constantly giving me positive reinforcement. I would get a new tune to practice as I became more proficient with the previous one. Each new tune became progressively more challenging. Having taken lessons from Mike for many years, I also witnessed his teaching and developing of younger kids. He really works with them in a positive way giving them as much time as they need to turn the corner on each tune and progress forward. They seem to enjoy it and he has developed some great musicians. As part of his instruction, he gives all his students an opportunity to participate in a Jazz Band he puts together. In this Jazz Band he leads all the players in working together though a jam session. Other players may include guitarists, brass players and keyboardists, young and older. Frankly I am forever grateful to Mike for helping me create the foundation to play jazz and blues piano both alone and with a group of other musicians."

"I was self taught for @ 5 months then decided to get lessons. I wanted a pro to be able to assess where I was at and give me the right instruction.

Tomas was able to to give me just that. He also taught me some neat strum patterns that made it fun. My wife really likes the sounds I can make with the guitar after only 2 lessons with Tomas.

On top of that he is a genuinely pleasant person to be around. I can tell he loves teaching people guitar.

My wife really likes the genre of music I am learning because she grew up with it. I like it as well as the finger skills that go along with it.

I believe this experience learning from Tomas will greatly influence the personal music style that I end up developing into."
