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.

It's time to get ready to show off your mad music skills, but you have a tendency to leave them wanting more. Let's talk about you performance ability. What makes your sound yours, are you fun to watch, and can you make a song come to life? All of these things are required to perform at your peak. This will push your limits and possibly free you to perform the way you always dreamed you could. Contact me to talk about which instrument and what kind of performances are appealing to you.

I took 5 lessons with Ed, very great instructor. I learned a lot in those few lessons. He helped with with my pitch and with my accent that I had to prepare for an audition. With his help I was accepted into my high school’s A cappella group “Madrigals” and overall I would recommend. We made it work and tried to make the best out of the situation. Great experience:)

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!

David is a great instructor. He can hear what you are doing wrong and tell you how to correct. I am learning Saxophone much faster than I thought possible.
Mark M.
Good first lesson with Dave. He's a great communicator and seemed to understand my level of music experience; he knew the right subjects to linger on, and what information he could skip over, confident that I already knew it. I felt like we were able to cover a lot of ground in 45 short minutes.

I work with a variety of people with many different goals. Currently my studio has young beginners, teens and young adults who are entering their professional career stage with new recordings, videos and many performance opportunities. We have upcoming shows at professional venues for our young artists as well as nursing homes and churches for less experienced performers. Shows include all genres and styles: voice, piano guitar and ensembles - and the studio has a lot of collaboration between people - doing back up vocals, co-writing songs, duets trios and more.

About Robert

Creativity, skill and love of music are the key elements that I work to encourage in every student. Over the years my teaching has evolved and I find it gratifying to take people far beyond their own expectations while helping them achieve their goals. I believe everyone is musical and just needs

Billy is a patient instructor who is perfect for a beginner with some musical knowledge. I feel like we accomplished quite a bit in one lesson and I am looking forward to advancing under his guidance! #totallyworthit
Flaminia D.
I have been taking lessons with Billy since January 2015. I am a total beginner and I really think I have made the best choice ever to pick him as my teacher. Billy is an experienced guitar teacher and a professional player that knows great techniques for beginners. He has been teaching me basics of guitar in a smart way, and at each lesson I feel I learn something new and at the same time I can clearly see how much progress I have made since our first lesson. He has also been teaching me how to read music and tabs which proofed to be extremely useful every time I want to learn a new song by myself. Highly recommended!

"Since I was in high school, I’ve always wanted to develop my skills as a piano player, drummer, or guitarist. I had a ways to go, and Greg was assigned to help me grow in our youth worship team. Out of the years I spent there, Greg was the best teacher I had! Hands on training, coherent instructions, and constructive feedback from our sessions were what made me into the musician I am today. Greg Campbell is the best!"

"I was 16 years old when I first started with Coren, She has helped me to get an amazing sound out of my voice! I sang every thing in my Nostrils! and my Adam's apple up in my Brain! I started out singing with my church choir, then my church band. My music director said I Should Take some lessons. He gave me Corens number and I set up a lesson for the following Thursday.

I got to the lesson and I was shaking. I've always been an Actor and I've always had this mental block about my voice. But After talking to her, Within the first 5 minutes she had already had me laughing and relaxing in my chair. She not only showed me how to use my vocals, she explained (In Detail) why and what was making my voice tighten up in the first place. She understood everything that my vocal cords were doing.

I would certainly say that Coren goes the extra mile when it comes to training the voice. And she has one of the biggest hearts on this planet! There were many lessons I had with her where I would Just be in tears because I had a mental block about my voice. But Coren would not let me stay there. She Believed in me and she got me out of my mental patterns.

I owe a lot to this women and I couldn't be more Grateful that I have the opportunity to study under her!"

"I've rehearsed and performed with Vandi Enzor in a chamber setting per the requirements of her graduate voice degree. I accompanied her on guitar as she sang; the specific piece was the Seven Popular Spanish songs by the great Spanish composer Manuel de Falla. Vandi is professional, patient, hard working, receptive, and musical. Her great command of her instrument is evident, and more than that she has genuine joy in what she does. Collaborating with her was a pleasure, and I can't recommend her enough for musical instruction. A true professional."
