Michael is a truly excellent instructor for beginners. I really enjoy his approach to teaching theory and practical skills on the instrument. Definitely worth it.

Puts a student at ease!

When I started lessons with Michael, I was experienced on one brass instrument and a beginner on another one. He was able to show me some useful things about the instrument I was new on, and help me keep going on the one I was already familiar with.

One thing that really stood out for me: I've always been too embarrassed to improvise musically, especially in front of anyone, but Michael got me improvising--and enjoying it!--during our very first lesson. I was impressed!

About Aaron

I've been a full time professional musician for 13+ years and have toured all over the world performing with music icons like Chacka Khan, Beyonce, and many more. I have a lot of experience with many different styles of music and I love sharing this gift with anyone who's interested. My teaching philosophy is simple: Get students playing music! It's much easier to understand the nuts and bolts of music when put into the context of the music you like. *** Lesson Details *** I like to design a lesson plan for each individual student. The first lesson will begin with a basic assessment of skill level. We will discuss goals for the lessons then get down to work! Students will learn: 1 Technique. the proper physicality to increase dexterity and avoid injury. 2 Music theory and ...

Aaron’s has been such a great teacher for my son – he is encouraging, optimistic, and a great listener. Aaron has been perceptive about what motivates Jasper and so he has found a great mix for each lesson of theory, technique, and fun exploration of new music concepts. He has adapted his style for where my son is on his learning journey so that he’s always moving forward and enjoying both practice and lesson time. From after the first day with Aaron he has always looked forward to going to his lessons. Since Aaron is an experienced and active professional musician, he shares what he knows is most important, practically and technically, across many music genres, and this suits my son’s curious nature. We feel really lucky to have found Aaron – he’s been positive, interesting, professional, friendly, and challenging. What else could you want in a teacher?

good all-around teacher

Aaron is a positive and inspiring instructor. He is very competent on the instrument (and I believe he is well versed in more than just bass guitar) and is a working musician. In my lessons he has attempted to guide me into territory I was unfamiliar with in a way that I can understand. Sometimes that has not been so easy, as with Modes, but he is willing to modify the lessons according to what I have wanted to learn and how easily I can absorb it. If there's something I'm not grasping, he tries to explain it in a different manner and with a little effort on my part, I can comprehend it. He definitely wants his students to learn and have fun, while also making it challenging.

About Harry

I am currently a student at Berklee College of Music, dual majoring in Drum Set Performance and Film Scoring. I have been playing the drums for 12 years, performing with The Academy Drum and Bugle Corps, Alternative Percussion Ensemble, and The Procrastinators - Bar Stool Trio. I have been teaching for 7 years, working with High Schools throughout the Southern California Area and with marching ensembles such as Gold Drum and Bugle Corps and Dark Sky Percussion. *** Lesson Details *** I am laid back, patient, and try to create a comfortable teaching environment. In lessons, I focus on developing the students technical proficiency in their hands and feet. Then apply these techniques to styles of music that are of interest to the student. Ultimately, the goal is to develop complete control ...

Harry is a great teacher, who will give you the skills to become a excellent and proficient musician. His focus on competency approach and technique in your hands and feet gives you the confidence to apply such skills through a variety of styles. After being taught by Harry for many years, I can honestly say I would not be the musician I am today without his guidance.

Joannah B. Boston, MA

About Joannah

Music has been an integral part of my life for as long as I can remember. In the evenings after listening to my mother teach piano lessons to a studio full of students, I would climb into her lap and beg her to teach me to play the piano. I eagerly soaked up everything that she taught me, enthralled by this incredible language of music. I continued studying piano with my mom all the way through high school, adding much-anticipated voice lessons in high school as well. We came from such a small town that we had to travel two hours round trip for my weekly voice lessons. As an undergraduate student at Willamette University in Oregon, I launched into further piano and voice studies earning a Bachelor of Music in Voice Performance. I began teaching seriously in the spring of ...

I was a beginner when I started working with Joannah. She met me at my level and crafted lessons that were just challenging enough to gently push me outside of my comfort zone; I progressed quickly as a result. She encouraged me to “be brave” when singing. Her encouragement coupled with her infinite patience created a safe space for me to learn.

Joannah is a gifted instructor. Time with her is well spent.

Joannah has been a wonderful teacher for my seven year old daughter. She is enthusiastic, patient, and full of ideas to make the lessons fun and informative. My daughter's playing has come along nicely. She worked with me through a bumpy patch (as can be the case with new young students) to keep my daughter involved and enthusiastic and now she really looks forward to her lesson each week. I'm very pleased and would recommend Joannah to anyone!

Classical Voice · In studio
I am happy to recommend Joannah as a voice teacher. At the urging some years ago of my two daughters (then in their teens), I started singing in my church choir. I had not sung in a choir since my teenage years. At some point one of my daughters noted that I was straining to reach certain notes and wondered if I was using the proper voice techniques. I knew nothing about such things, but, serendipitously, I had come to know Joannah, who had just begun offering private voice lessons, so I signed up. In just six or eight lessons one summer, she taught me how to stand, how to breathe, and myriad other singing techniques I had never known about. She was a joy to work with, and those few weeks greatly enhanced my pleasure in singing. I heartily recommend her.

About Christopher

Welcome! My name is Christopher S. and I am a classical guitarist, song writer, and experienced music teacher. I began learning music when I was nine on the piano however by the time I turned twelve I discovered my passion for the guitar. I began by learning songs and playing in band with some of my school friends. This was the start of my journey into music. I started with blues, rock, and pop music but I quickly moved into more complex genres such as funk and Jazz music. In college I began my studies of the historically endless and huge world of classical music. This is also when I began teaching and taking students of guitar. I studied classical music at Hofstra University and completed my degree at Humboldt State University in Northern California. After earning my degree I began ...

About Daniel

When I started learning oboe at age 10 I was told by my band director that it was going to be too difficult and not worth the trouble. The oboe may be slightly more difficult to start out with than the other instruments, but it is also more rewarding. What it lacks in ease it makes up for in beauty and character. I want to make sure that no one misses out on the joy of this instrument out of intimidation! Having an experienced teacher and reedmaker to help is essential, and I will gladly offer my skills to anyone interested in the instrument at any age or stage of development. With the right instructor, learning the oboe is no more difficult than any other woodwind. I have been the oboe teacher at Camp Encore/Coda for three years and a counselor for many more. During that time I ...

Daniel is a very engaging teacher that makes learning to play the oboe enjoyable. His encouragement made playing the oboe more fulfilling for me than it had ever been in the past with other instructors. He strikes a good balance between constructive criticism and cheerful reward for a job well done. Time in lessons is always well spent and I always walked out feeling like I had made great improvements in just an hour's time. I would highly recommend him!

Dan is wonderful. Let alone the fact that he's amazing at what he does, the way he teaches is so easy and good for whatever level you may be at. I learned with him for a few years at Camp Encore/Coda and then for a little while during the year, so I got to know him really well. He helped my knowledge and skill with the oboe grow immensely. When I started with him, I was not very good at playing, and he gave me the exercises right for me. He is so nice to learn from for he understands what is the best for his student, and he pushes you the right amount so you improve, but don't get stressed out or worried. I didn't think "I'm not good enough" when he gave me something hard for he gave me the tools needed to keep moving forward. Learning from Dan was a really great experience.

Oboe · In studio
Prior to my time at Camp Encore/Coda, my experiences of oboe teachers and been unengaging, boring and most importantly, uninspiring. Dan was such a great contrast to previous old and stale lessons - I actually looked forward to his! He is a thoughtful teacher who aims to teach, but also understand. His work with me on the oboe was hugely beneficial, and fundamentally inspiring. His love for the music and the instrument is at the forefront of his teaching, and he perpetually convinced me of my own. Thank you, Dan!
