JR is excellent in assessing a student's skill level. Once he has determined it he immediately begins challenging the student with fun drills that focus in on improving areas where the student is struggling. Not a moment of the lesson is lost, everything is focused on moving to the next challenge - although patiently.

Mr. West is an amazing teacher! He helps you figure out your notes, pieces, scales, etc., etc., and even takes the time to write out music sheets! I look forward to every lesson with him! -Spring Z. (Student)

I am really pleased with Tom's approach and simplification of cello basics others have made so complex! The instruction was easy to follow leaving me with the ability to play 3 scales the first lesson (with practice of course). I felt like there was hope for someone like me taking up cello so much later in life.

It seemed like a great first lesson. My son was comfortable and got directly to learning. We are confident that Mr. West will have him caught up with the rest of the 7th grade band in no time!

Thanks so much! We are here on vacation and appreciate the availability of Bill. My daughter has a region audition when we get back home and she needed help with her scales.

French Horn is not the easiest instrument to learn but is such a beautiful instrument when played well. Horn students need a teacher that is patient and experienced with the ability to help them work through it's particular challenges. During my eight years of study at the Indiana University School of Music I was fortunate to study with two very well known French horn players, Philip Farkas and Michael Hatfield. Studying with both of them definitely shaped me as the musician and teacher I am today more than any other experience in my life. I also have many years of experience playing in orchestras and as an orchestra teacher.

Our son has been taking piano lessons with Mr. Hawes for 2 years and we couldn't be happier! He is a wonderful teacher, and we have seen our son grow and learn and get excited about lessons! Mr. Hawes has patience in working with students, and I am always amazed at his knack for getting even squirrely little boys to sit still and get engaged in a lesson! Mr. Hawes is a wonderful teacher, who is passionate about his students and loves working with them, which is apparent in each lesson. We are truly blessed to have found such a wonderful teacher for our son, and would highly recommend him.

Bobby has a great talent for breaking down complicated music theory concepts and explaining precisely why they are important to your progression with the instrument. I started taking lessons with him after having taken a ten-year hiatus from the trumpet. During the first lesson, he was immediately able to identify where my abilities had eroded and gave me exercises to improve my technical skills. He also to helped me improve my sheet music reading skills, even transcribing some of my favorite songs into sheet music that I could memorize. I would highly recommend Bobby as an instructor. His enthusiasm for music and teaching is infectious!
