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.

Lessons are based around each individual student's music goals. Simple practical methods for understanding and developing the fundamental skills needed to play songs you love and want to perform are the focus of each lesson. Teaching and performing music are what I'm passionate about. I have over twenty years of teaching experience with beginners and advanced students and have developed a curriculum that really works for all levels and styles while keeping things fun!

About Brian

I've been working with Brian for four months now and have made excellent progress on guitar. Brian quickly adjusted to my experience level and has done an outstanding job of removing long-standing bad habits and reinforcing the good ones. He has a fresh approach which ensures students don't get bored and, best of all, instills confidence and a good stage presence. I'm on my way to being a better guitar player but more importantly, a better musician. I recommend Brian without reservation.
Wendy
Brian has been great , he patiently provides simple tangible explanations for both guitar play and music theory. He is building a solid foundation for my musical growth and more importantly supporting and enhancing my love of music. I give Brian my highest recommendation, he's a natural teacher

Cameron is an excellent teacher for me. I am 11 years old and have been playing for almost a year with him. He is patient and makes me stretch to be a better guitarist. He takes time to find songs at my level of learning and accommodates my tastes in music. I would recommend him for anyone who is interested in playing guitar.
Kim K.
I enjoyed my first lesson with Cameron. He explained things clearly so I could understand. Can't wait for my next lesson.
Pat A.
A solid teacher with a lot of experience

Cameron is great at tailoring the lessons to my musical taste without compromising the theory, basics and fundamentals.
I have been taking lessons for one year and will not go elsewhere anytime soon. His vast musical knowledge helps merge the theory with concrete examples. No question remains unanswered.

I am straight-forward, compassionate, and I have a good sense of humor when coaching. I want my students to feel EXCITED and CONFIDENT about the material they are doing and their approach to the work.

Abby is freaking amazing and you should 100% take lessons from her. She’s funny and talented and so knowledgeable about singing! I took lessons because I love musicals and wanted to learn how to manage breathing, etc. I have definitely improved and feel so cool & happy :) for real though, she doesn’t judge you at all and she totally gets everything you may be feeling. With her I was able to get my voice warm and feel comfortable enough to let it out! And she tailors her lessons to YOU. We sang what I was interested in. I am a teacher in real life so I know what good teaching is, and Abby is IT. Having lessons with her during quarantine has been a godsend, too! Take lessons with her & support artists— you won’t regret it!!
Caryn
Amazing talent and even better teacher! I highly recommend her to both children and adults!
Lacy
Abby is amazing! I've been singing for over 30 years and have always wanted a voice coach. I looked through many profiles in my search. When I can across Abby's profile, I instantly wanted her to train me. I've always loved Broadway, and I wanted an empowering coach like her. Abby is a star, and she will make you feel like one too. I needed help with technique, daily habits, and confidence. Abby is very patient and really listens to her students. She always encourages me and gives feedback in a positive way. She finds songs within my voice range that challenge me, and also works with songs I choose. I look forward to classes every week. In the short time I've been working with Abby, my voice and confidence have improved. Abby also taught me great daily exercises and breathing techniques. I highly recommend Abby for anyone seeking a positive and skilled voice/musical theater coach.

I met Dave in my music theory class at Ex'pression college. He's the reason why I'm making music today. I went from not knowing a thing about music theory or a piano to creating chord progressions, understanding modes, intervals, modal interchange, and how to read sheet music. He's extremely patient, professional, and easy to get along with. His passion for music and teaching is infectious, I highly recommend!!!"
