Melissa J is patient, warm, and intelligent

I can easily recommend Melissa J. She is bright, warm, patient and enthusiastic about teaching music. Our son instantly connected with her, and he has remembered every single thing she has taught him. If he had his way, he would take a lesson with her everyday! Big thanks !

Good instructor, goes at your pace/ability level

I've only been taking lessons with Rob for 3 weeks, but so far so good. After an 18 year hiatus from playing the flute, I decided it was time to go back to it. He's customized the lessons to go as fast as I am able to pick it up, as it is coming back to me quickly. I appreciate not getting stuck in a "set" order of lessons. He's knowledgeable, professional, a genuinely nice person and he is a very good, easy to understand instructor.

INSPIRED LEARNINGS!

We laugh a lot when I goof up and he kindly leads me to where it will be better. We have had only 3 lessons so far and I have practiced every day, sometimes more than once per day and he says he can tell. Rob is a very experienced teacher and musician.

Incredible teacher and mentor

Fernando taught my son guitar for many years, but also taught him the love of music. He was not only by far, the best teacher we ever found but also a mentor to my son. My son could not wait to work with him every week and worked hard to make him proud. He was and always will be a very influential person in my son life. Excellent teacher, wonderful man.

Fernando has been teaching our two children guitar for over a year and a half. His passion for guitar and teaching is evident at every lesson. His gentle mannerisms and clear understanding of children and how they process and learn is the perfect mix to allow for continual growth in the subject. We could not have asked for a better teacher!

Title to my review.

I'd like to first point out that I knew the entire time how to write a review; I just wanted to wait until our last lesson was over to write it. Now that our 8th and final lesson is finished, I give all of my praise to Rebecca for helping me understand the astonishingly intricate piano. Her guidance and wisdom gave me the desire to pursue a minor in musical performance at the college i'm attending. To sum all of this up, because I only have a certain amount of space to fit a review that could be as long as The Count of Monte Cristo! Consider this my 5 star, 10 out of 10 approval of this women not only as a mentor, but as a friend as well, and I hope that whatever path she leads, that it be as uplifting as the one I took in our lessons together.
