My kids thoroughly enjoyed lessons with Ed (both guitar and piano). Lessons started with my 7yo and when his brother turned 4yo, he started as well.

Having a great time learning the banjo with Ed!

Ed is an excellent piano teacher! He is kind, approachable, and great with kids. It is clear he is an experienced musician, we are most likely going to try guitar lessons with him as well!

There are several aspects to performance that I can help a guitarist with. The chief one is solo performance and improvisation which I have taught many students even kids in school bands who need to improvise in the jazz band and don't know how. Another aspect is how to use a guitar amp properly at higher show/concert volumes as far as tone settings and use of effects. Makes a huge difference when you know the insider "secrets". So you can even bring your amp for an "amp lesson".

Pete is the best instructor that I have ever had. He is the only person I ever had that was able to explain things in a way that I could understand. I have taken lessons from other people and was not able to learn anything.

Private Music Performance Teacher

I've been playing for about 9 years and have played in several bands. I've bee teaching for about 4 years and find its best to teach as we play rather than teach theory and then play. My personal teaching style is to show a student chords and or scales in the beginning of class, then use the rest to play around with them and then focus on the technique to play it efficiently and effectively.

About Cristopher

I've played in numerous bands, have worked in studios, and have been teaching for about four years now and am always finding new ways to understand and help accomplish my students' goals.

Only our first lesson, but my sometimes shy, sometimes easily frustrated 8 yo daughter responded very well to Chris and gave the lesson literally 2 thumbs up. Looking forward to see her learn how to play!
Alex
Very knowledgeable and helpful. A good skilled teacher and tailored the lesson plan to our needs. Overall an enjoyable experience for our 16 year old son.

Excellent Teacher

I am an older student and I started to learn to play the piano more than a year ago under a different teacher. I started with Eugene about 4 months ago. I was struggling with the piano previously. But after just 2 lessons with Eugene, I found myself playing confidently. Eugene explains so clearly and everything makes sense to me now. I enjoy practicing everyday now. He is excellent teacher, patient, and very professional. He is always on time.

We can not express how grateful we are to have Fawn for our daughters coach! She is sounding fantastic on both piano and voice! Thanks Fawn!

Here is the BEST Vocal coach ever. Allie has improved so much working with Fawn and her confidence is soaring. She tried out for a small part on a theatrical play and got one of the lead roles. Thank you Fawn, we are eternally grateful!
Gregory King
A most excellent piano teacher. Fun, patient, talented, a great communicator with a profound impact on my improvement. Never though online lessons would work, but they do and Fawn is fantastic!
Forena
When I began my Masters in Music, the university told me to find someone that I wanted to work with one on one. I decided to approach Fawn because of her specialty in improv, Jazz, her knowledge of a variety of styles and her experience as a vocalist. She has a wealth of knowledge and experience. She helped me to feel confident approaching Jazz and I will always be grateful. Fawn is brilliant! I enjoy every lesson and continue to improve and lean new skills from her! Highly recommend Fawn

"Bill is a thoughtful teacher, an amazing musician, and a really caring guy

I would highly recommend Bill! He is such a great player and teacher! He has helped enormously with my saxophone playing, clarinet playing, and improvising.

Since my saxophone playing is already fairly advanced. In our lessons on saxophone focus heavily on advanced jazz improvisation topics, like standard tunes, and transcription. He is so knowledgeable on these advanced topics but is really great at showing me the basics so that I can learn at my own level and pace.

On clarinet Bill and I work on more classical studies and instrument technique to get my clarinet playing more on track.

Bill is such a patient and motivating teacher. It is clear that he cares deeply about MY SUCCESS in music. He has helped me feel good about my musical progress and inspired me to work harder!

He has even given me lots of great music business advice, and helped me think about what I want out of music in my life.

Bill is so easy to get along with and is really careful to explain things in a way that I can understand them.

Its been really awesome getting to know and work with him!"

"A Great Teacher!

Heather is first and foremost an amazing teacher!
I came to her as a complete novice at 28 years old. The sound I was producing most people were trying to avoid best they could. My closest would actually just tell me to stop.
After a quick assessment Heather recognized all my problem areas and with a smile pointed out what was positive.
She then proceeded with fun exercises, starting from breathing and on to ear training. She was building me up "block after block" into an educated musician. I could feel myself progress.
She made me hear the difference!

Now not even short 6 months later I am, though still learning, enjoying my music with my friends and family.
Heather is very personable, incredibly perceptive, and her knowledge is very well-rounded. She is somebody that approaches her craft with integrity and is always researching new training material.
Thank you so much!"

"To Whom It May Concern:

It has been a pleasure to have Ms. Leeora K. teach my son how to play piano for two years. My son developed a positive relationship with Ms. K. He excelled in piano under her direction. Ms. K. is a responsible, kind, thoughtful, and professional piano instructor that we were blessed to have worked with. I appreciate that Ms. K. is passionate and caring about teaching my son and others how to play the piano.

I believe that Ms. K. would make an excellent candidate for any work position that she seeks because she is a friendly, helpful, and reliable person. I highly recommend Ms. K! Please feel free to contact me if you should need further information.


Thank you,

Maureen Flaherty"

"I played in the Advent Band with Vandi as our worship leader for several years. Her energy and enthusiasm was contagious and she always provided positive, constructive criticism. Vandi's knowledge of music theory was demonstrated in her ability to arrange our songs to suit the various skill levels of the band members and the congregation! This is not an easy task and she handled it with ease and grace. I would highly recommend her as an instructor."
