Amazing singng instructor

Crystal has increased my daughter’s self-esteem and expressiveness through song. My daughter is now writing her own poetry and song lyrics, as well as being able to combat her once shyness quality. She loves to perform in front of others now and has a confidence level that amazes me, especially now that she is going into those “teen” years. I think a lot of thanks needs to go to Crystal, for assisting my daughter in reaching her current creative level!

Great piano instructor

Crystal is an amazing piano instructor. She is patient, understanding and dedicated. My daughter has learned so much from her. My daughter’s love for music has increased immensely since learning how to play the piano. This would never have been able to be accomplished without Crystal’s professional and caring teaching style.

Wonderful person and excellent instruction

I have been taking lessons from Crystal for a few months now. I took lessons from others before I moved to the area, and I have had multiple new breakthroughs with Crystal. She is great at finding the language that allows me to understand adjustments, and is very patient and understanding. I was at ease from the first moment I met her. I highly recommend her to other adults looking to get into singing of any kind!

Marta is an exceptional instructor, and we are so lucky to have found her! My now 10 year old has been her student for a year and a half and has truly blossomed as a violin player. Marta is not only talented, but kind, patient, and accommodating. She is 100% engaged and dedicated to her students and clearly takes great care in developing their love of music. We could not have asked for a better instructor!

Marta is a professional in every sense of the word. First of all, she is punctual, which in my book is everything. Once the lesson starts with my 11 yr. old son she is incredibly focused and passionate about making sure he is really taking in what she is teaching. If she senses that he might not be getting something, she patiently starts over and goes over every step along the way. From posture to tonality she is giving my son a strong base from which he will be able to build on. He absolutely adores her and so do I!

I have taken private lessons with multiple instructors throughout my life. Adrianne has by far been the best instructor I ever had. She was very patient and had very creative and effective approaches to explaining difficult techniques.
She helped me improve a lot in a short period of time and pointed out many mistakes and bad habits that none of my other teachers had ever noticed.
She is great!

I started taken violin lessons with Adrianne as a refresher and a supplement to my chamber ensemble class. Having not really taken one-on-one lessons in a long time, there were a few bad habits that I formed that Adrianne was easily able to notice and give helpful advice. She was always a patient and very attentive listener. Almost immediately I could tell there was a difference in my sound production and bowing techniques from her practice tips. Definitely worth investing in her lessons!

Drew is incredibly knowledgeable, patient, and encouraging. I am also a guitar teacher, but he managed to show me a great number of ways to continue improving my playing on my own time. His method is very goal-and-task-oriented, which makes progress easy to track and practice time easy to organize. I thoroughly enjoyed Drew's lessons, and I would recommend him to anyone who wants to improve quickly!

Drew is by far the best teacher I've had so far. As a person, he is extremely kind and down-to-earth. He cares about you as a person and wants to get to know more about you. As a teacher, he is very professional and passionate about what he does. Also, unlike most teachers out there, he doesn't just teach you how to play covers of songs, but he really teaches you theory and about the guitar as a whole. He is so knowledgeable about the guitar that he can teach you just about anything. Just tell Drew what you want to learn and he will teach you it. I definitely recommend him!!

Drew is a great guitar instructor and an overall nice guy. He is patient, but also a perfectionist (just what you want from an instructor). I'm the type of person that doesn't just want to know how, but also why, and Drew's teaching style suits me perfectly. By introducing logic and theory to my playing, it has really enabled me to improve my improvisational skills. As a self-taught guitarist originally, I found myself at a plateau before starting lessons with Drew. Despite having a good ear for music, I was inconsistent in my playing and really needed to clean up my technique. After just 2 months of lessons with Drew, I've seen a drastic improvement in my playing technique but also my practicing techniques. All in all, I'm extremely pleased with his instruction and will continue to improve with his lessons.Check him out, you won't regret it!

Jon B.

Los Angeles, CA

About Jon

Jon B., a native of Cape Elizabeth, ME, started playing the drums at the young age of three. His musical taste was heavily influenced by listening to Tower of Power, Huey Lewis, Chicago, and other bands from that genre. By age six, he was taking drum lessons and playing in a band with his brothers. He then went off to study at Boston University, where he earned a degree in music education. Jon then decided to continue his education at the Berklee college of music. As a drummer, Jon is versatile and can play Funk, Rock, Jazz, Latin, Country, and practically any genre in between. Jon’s teaching goals include building a whole musician, not just a drummer. His students learn to read music and think melodically, not just rhythmically. His students are also taught to be very versatile musicians

My son began taking piano lessons just before age 8. For two years we struggled through those lessons. My son would retreat under the piano or give up and in general was not making much progress. He wasn't enjoying learning music and the two teachers that he had did not know how to engage my son (who has Asperger's) in a way that was meaningful or effective. I was ready to give up on music lessons for my son when we met Jon. Jon brought his energy and enthusiasm for music and life into our home each week and my son caught on. My son started to WANT to practice and took on learning new and much more complicated songs. Jon's teaching style is very flexible, so when my son was into playing on the piano, that is what they would do, if he needed a break they would do some music theory work on the iPad, in between playing music, they would talk baseball. Jon connected with my son and was therefore a highly effective teacher for him. For the first time, my son wanted to perform in the Jam Session (recital) to show off what he had learned and he played an amazing rendition of Sweet Caroline with style and accuracy. After the Jam session, my son asked if he could continue taking lessons over the summer and could Jon start teaching him trumpet, in addition to piano. Jon encouraged him to try new things and got him excited about music. We were very sad to hear that Jon was moving away. We wish him all the best in his new endeavor.

Jon taught both my daughters, ages 9 and 11, piano for the past two years. His love for music is apparent and his enthusiasm infectious. My girls loved their weekly lessons and progressed steadily from total beginners to where they were comfortable enough to perform short solos at their end of the year performances. His lessons were always fun and engaging. We highly recommend Jon and wish him all the best in CA!

Jon was Ben's drum instructor for about two years. With Jon's help and encouragement, Ben got so good that we now enjoy hearing our 15-year-old son play the drums in our house as loud as possible. We like and trust Jon, and consider him a family friend. We were sorry when Jon told us he was moving to California, but excited for his new opportunity. Jon is one of the most sincere and enthusiastic people we know, and he makes learning music fun, Ben says. Jon gets our highest rating!
