About Derek

Hello there! I love music! To me, it truly is a universal language, and nothing else can capture and express emotion quite like it. Ever since I picked up a guitar 15 years ago, I've been on a quest to learn and speak the language of music. One discovery I have made along the way is that I love teaching it to others, too! Over the past 10 years, I've been busy immersing myself in music. The excitement of performing live on stage, the pride of writing a song that touches someone, the reward of watching a student learn something new—these are the things that fuel my passion. My dream is that my students will one day be able to experience these things! I've been teaching guitar lessons for over 5 years, and I just recently graduated from ASU with a B.S. in psychology. Also, I am ...

Derek is an awesome instructor and mentor, and his studio is comfortable and clean. I agree with previous reviewers who said... BOOK HIM NOW!

Derek has a broad range of music theory knowledge and can play anything you ask for. He's also amazingly kind and supportive, adapting to the student's needs as you go along rather than adhering to a rigid schedule.

I've been taking bass guitar lessons with Derek for two months and I feel inspired. He always makes me feel like a rock star, while constantly challenging me to take my skills to the next level. I originally debated between two instructors on this site and I'm so glad I made the right choice!

Great teacher - book him

I took lessons with Derek summer 2013. Derek did a great job of answering all my guitar and music theory questions. The techniques I learned under Derek were inline with my music interests.

Derek always did a great job of communicating with email. He was very flexible with scheduling and I always felt comfortable learning in his in-home studio.

Derek can play anything and he is very easy to work with - highly recommended.

Fantastic Instructor!

In two lessons, Derek has simplified music for me and given me the tools to play a ton of songs already. I love that his lessons encompass some music theory, understanding of the instrument, and actual playing of a song. I feel like I learn something valuable each time. He gauges your skill level pretty well and delivers instruction at just the right pace. A fantastic instructor who presents music in a way that's easy to understand. I'm so glad I chose him as a guitar/ukelele instructor!

About Marty

Open up to your own unique voice. Play piano with energy and freedom. "With singing, your body is your instrument. Helping you become all you can be as a performer is my number one goal. Protecting your voice is a close second as we work to strengthen your vocal range and the quality of your sound. As well, piano students will learn techniques that will speed up their comprehension of sight reading and/or improvisation. Teaching gives me an opportunity to energize my students and share with them historically proven techniques - as well as new ways of practicing and performing." - Marty Originally from Boulder, Colorado, Marty moved to the Phoenix, AZ area eight years ago. Marty has over 20 years of performing and teaching experience. She studied for three years at the School of ...

We love Marty. My daughter has been with her 2 1/2 years. There is a special relationship with my daughter and Ms. Marty that I never hear from any other teacher. Respect! I'm speaking of the respect that Ms. Marty shows her students. When she speaks to my daughter she treats her with such respect and kindness. Francesca will always have the skills Marty has taught her and continues growing and blossoming under her tutelage.

Marty can guide you go down whatever musical path that interests you. She tells you what you need to do to achieve great quality, but never makes you feel bad if you don't make it.

Instruction is always individualized and positive. She always looks for what you do best and helps you develop your strengths. She works with you to overcome your weaknesses. Taking classes with her is a great pleasure.

I really like Marty, she is a great teacher! We have been with her for over two years and she teaches my two older children. I appreciate that she takes a slightly different approach to each child based on their learning style and personality. She is patient yet demanding with the kids, and flexible with my needs and requests as a parent. It is clear she is knowledgeable and loves piano and music generally.

About Phillip

I teach music. The guitar, bass guitar, and ukulele just happen to be the particular instruments I choose. Music as a language, discipline, and art, is the goal. I've been teaching, performing, studying, composing, for some thirty years. I've studied and gigged in the classical, jazz, rock, blues, R & B, and country idioms. I've taught composition and improvisation to instruments other than guitar, (vocalists, fiddle, sax, piano, trumpet) I've taught all ages and levels. I currently pursue a doctorate of music in guitar at university. Students learn many things when studying with me. They learn physically how to play a particular instrument while learning music as its own language. Students learn how to learn, learn self-discipline, and access their musical expression, all ...

I've been taking online lessons with Phil for almost two years now and have been enjoying every minute of it. It is very seldom you come across someone who truly loves music and shines through in teaching style. His love for music is an inspiration for me. Phil is an experienced professional, reliable, enthusiastic and his lessons are always meaningful and productive. If you're wanting to learn how to play the guitar or uke, Phil is the guy. Never to late to learn how to play an instrument. He is the best. ;-)

Phillip has been absolutley wonderful with my 7 year old son. He was able to teach him to play a song within the first two lessons. Since then he has laid the groundwork to build on to transform my son into a bonafide guitarist. He has worked on technique, reading music, chords, scales and keeping rhythm. He is very patient and jokes around keeping the lessons light and fun. He is very responsive to emails and is flexible with lesson times. I cannot recommend him highly enough!

Aaron is a great instructor! I've been taking drum lessons with Aaron for over 2 years. He brings enthusiasm and positive energy into each lesson. He is very talented, and his passion for drumming is evident in the way he teaches. Lessons are always fun. Aaron is patient and encouraging.

My daughter has been to Jennifer three times so far, and we will continue to use her for lessons. She is friendly, great with kids, recognizes strengths and weaknesses easily and addresses them. My daughter has learned so much in the few lessons she attended thus far. I recommend her to any one else in the Gilbert area looking for a step above the rest.
