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!

Jesey is FANTASTIC! I'm an adult beginner with no prior music experience. I've had a couple online lessons so far and I couldn't be more pleased. I've learned something new in every lesson and he's been helping me learn some of my favorite songs. He's great!

Piano was the instrument I ran to when I was tired of classical guitar in college. As a consequence, I develop a very special relationship with it. I've learned to use it as a vehicle for expressing music in a way that's more free than any instrument that I do. Things I teach on piano usually include...

-Basic technique: scale fingerings, finger mechanics, dynamic posture
-Music Learning: how the piano makes music easier than with any other instrument, and what is the most efficient way to learn music
-Improvisation: how to explore music freely using easy keyboard techniques
-Composition: how to find and discipline your creativity through exploratory piano exercises

About Jonathan

I studied music therapy and music theory at Temple University from '06-'10. Learned a lot. Then again, I learned even more teaching at a school for kids with learning disabilities and working as a traveling street performer. Once you see the world and work with some unexpected challenges, you learn

Jonathan is incredibly skilled, a great teacher, fun, and very patient with our gregarious and somewhat distracted 9-year old boy. He has creative, tailored teaching techniques, will try new things, but also keeps our son motivated and progressing. He responds perfectly and patiently to my son when he veers off task, and gets him back on task. We are absolutely thrilled and couldn't have found a better teacher.
Jackie G.
My son has special needs related to an anoxic brain injury. This can create frustration with simple things like learning a new chord that feels funny or is difficult to move your fingers to. He always checks in with us to see what concerns we have and then, helps us by offering suggestions on how to make something easier or less frustrating to learn. I think Jonathan does a good job of meeting us where we are. Jonathan is patient with both of us. Today, he talked to my son about practicing communicating so we can understand how to help him learn. He talked to me about it being ok to break away from the timing and to hit chords at the same time as my son so the song can come together.
Jackie G.
Jonathan is flexible and easy to work with. My son has some struggles as a result of an anoxic brain injury. Jonathan is very understanding and patient with my son. He has also helped me with advice and suggestions on how to work with my son. We love the spirit of the ukulele and the good vibes it has.

I have run my own private studio in both Peru and the United States and can give lessons in either English or Spanish. I took more than a decade of private piano lessons in the US and continued my studies at the university level. I have been teaching piano ever since I graduated. I help students learn a variety of styles from classical to jazz to pop. Something that I especially emphasis is improv and composition which is something we can get started with at any level and we usually dabble in from the first lesson. I teach students age four and up. Anyone can enjoy playing the piano and I help students play the songs that most interest them while making sure they are well-rounded musicians!

About Laney

I have been playing piano since the age of eight under the tutelage of various instructors. I maintained a full-time studio in Lima, the capital of Peru, where I taught piano to embassy and other expat families for several years before moving to the US. I am fluent in both English and Spanish and h

"Deanna is the best! Honestly, I was nervouse about vocal training, but I always hear people saying you should invest in yourself so I tried with Deanna after meeting her and hearing her sing. Her pricing is great and my voice and breathing is getting stronger and better with every session. She's tough man, but she's an awesome coach!"

"Peter is an extremely patient and knowledgeable teacher; it has been a privilege studying the piano and cello with him for the past 2 months. In that brief time, I have completed 16 of the 17 pieces in the first Suzuki book for cello! I have also enjoyed the piano exercises and repertoire he has assigned, which are technical but melodious. He has a great understanding of theory and technique; he is very personable and encouraging; and he was flexible and accommodating about the times and modes (in person and online) for my lessons. I recommend him wholeheartedly to other adult beginners like me and am grateful to be under his tutelage."

"Once again, the parents aren't allowed to go in with teacher while class is in session. So as the parent I'm not really sure what goes on in the actual class. My daughter likes it, she said's she wants to continue so her father and I will allow her to do another round of lessons. No she hasn't sung anything for us lol but from what I have seen Ms. Wilma seems very nice. The only thing I don't like is the very minimum feedback that is given when my child does come out of the class. L"

He can do lessons online or in-person, but I highly recommend doing in-person lessons to be able to hear the more intricate sounds of your own voice and to learn from listening to his."

"I started my lessons with Nick just one month. I know I am inquisitive, intense, overly involved and very detail oriented with my interests in general and I treat guitar the same way. I enjoy and immerse myself into it. I think Nick has a very broad knowledge of guitar playing and comes across as a very conscientious instructor in the way he handles my overachieving demands. I would surely recommend him."

"I started taking lessons from Will when I was 15, and continued with him for about 3 years until I moved away. the first time I talked with him on the phone, he asked me several questions about what I wanted to play, what I liked to listen to, my goals as far as the instrument and then used this information to put together a personalized lesson plan that taught me not only what I wanted to learn, but what I needed to learn to become a real guitar player. I consider Will a personal friend and mentor, and whenever I go to visit him, I find that he is still teaching me, years later. If I have any regrets from my time under Will's instruction, it's that I never truely appreciated the quality and consistency of my lessons. If you are looking for the best guitar instructor from beginner to expert, you've found him and you won't be disappointed.

A side story,
2 years after I stopped taking lessons from Will, I stopped into a guitar store in Tempe and over heard a dad asking two of the employees about lessons for his son. They directed the man to a bulletin board covered In cards from local teachers and said " grab one that says Will Geiswite"."
