Luther is a great instructor, I came to take the class because I wanted to learn some good vocal techniques. I am not a signer but am planning to be part of a choir. He is quite knowledgeable, patient and is a great listener. I like that he is very serious about ensuring your success and knowing that has helped me to build my confidence.
David N.
Luther stays where I’m at and then helps me go the next step. That is useful for consistent gradual progress without the frustrations of moving either too slow or too fast (I am a beginning tenor saxophone player). Nice interpersonal style, patient and easy going, while methodical.
Geoff K.
I think Luther is great. He works with my 10-year old son on piano, singing and even trumpet and violin as needed. My son has to work hard to progress, and Luther customizes the lesson plan for him and seems to understand him well. I'm really excited about them working together.

Jeff Z - Durham CT
I have been working with Brandon since late November 2019. I am new to drumming and having a drum teacher who is willing to come to your house to teach you on YOUR equipment. I find this to be not just convenient, but very helpful in that I find I can retain what Brandon is teaching me each lesson. Brandon is very friendly, capable and knowledgable. He has patience and never ever gets frustrated, in fact his positive reenforcement builds my confidence and keeps me engaged to continue to learn. As many folks new to drumming want to do, I wanted to 'just learn songs' and while Brandon would have done this he explained the foundational need to get the sticking, timing and coordination foundation so that we can get to my goals!

I recommend Brandon very highly. He is a nice person as well as great drum teacher. He will NOT disappoint!
Jack
Brandon is a very encouraging and welcoming teacher. He's phenomenal at breaking down ideas in many different ways to ensure you understand the content and will put you to work so that you keep progressing as a drummer!
bob
Brandon was a terrific drum instructor for my son. He's a true musician and a fantastic teacher. His technical proficiency allows him to identify potential areas of improvement in his students and help them grow. His comfort with many styles of music and professionalism make him an all around great instructor.

He's a good guy too. My son liked working with him a lot.

"I took the beginner class and I was amazed by how far I progressed with Ahmad's instruction. My friends who play guitar had told me that they spent months just learning to play chords before they were able to play songs. But by the end of the four week class I could play not one, but *three* songs.

Ahmad has a well-thought-out curriculum that introduces music theory and chord concepts in a way that helps you understand what's happening musically while being able to apply it to actual songs. He has printouts and online videos to help you review if you forget something from class. He also gives you good strategies for practicing effectively. And finally, his excitement for music is infectious. One of the hardest things for me is staying motivated to practice, but that's a lot easier when I can see that I'm progressing toward being the guitarist I want to be with every lesson.

I've taken music lessons from a lot of different musicians in my lifetime (piano, violin, voice) and while they were all skilled musicians, none were as skilled of teachers as Ahmad. If your experience is anything like mine, you'll learn more faster taking lessons here than anywhere else."

"If you're considering taking music lessons, now is the time, and Josh is your guy! I've taken music lessons with a number of instructors in the past, and they've each had their own unique approach to both music and teaching. Working with Josh was the first time that I felt like my music education was a collaborative partnership. Josh was open to meshing my prior musical experience with his expertise and teaching style, and allowed me to choose the direction and pace of my progress while providing the structure and support I need as an adult learner. Whether it's online or in-person, I can't recommend studying with Josh highly enough!"
