Stacey created an environment that was extremely conducive to learning. She is not only very knowledgeable but she presents information in an easy and relaxing manner. Being a novice I did not feel overwhelmed or intimidated by what she asked of me. Very quickly she was able to discern where to take the lesson that instilled the greatest confidence and yet focused on the most immediate opportunities for moving forward. She’s fun, enthusiastic, and informative and made an hour lesson seem like fifteen minutes. I look forward to working with her in the future. I would strongly recommend her.

I only had a few lessons with Nan-Yu, but she helped me greatly improve. She wasn't just focused on me completing the piece, but on the musicality of what I was playing. I feel like my tone greatly improved and my consciousness of what I was playing.

Todd T.

Cincinnati, OH

About Todd

About Guitar Lessons With Todd

"Todd is a very gifted and motivated guitarist with an uncommon aptitude for teaching."
Rodney Stucky

"Todd is passionate about teaching, and dedicates himself to this with utmost energy and purpose. He is always extremely successful in producing a high level of achievement with every student." Jeffrey Van

One of the most important duties of a competent instructor is teaching students how to practice. This is just as true for the rank beginner as it is for the advanced student, or even professional. Everyone can learn to play music and play it well if
given competent instruction. Learning to play well is learning about the mind and body, and how to use it to one's potential. As the awareness of the self is refined, not only is the playing improved, but the potential for greatness is elevated. Learning to perform music with security and confidence is fun!

Bob is a great guy and has been an informal instructor to me in our church worship band for more than a decade. He has helped my musicianship as well as ability. He has years of experience and is as talented as they come. He works well with everyone from beginners to seasoned musicians (I'm one of those in-between), and in many different styles (both acoustic and electric guitar).

Chrissy L.

Cincinnati, OH

About Chrissy

I have been teaching private lessons for 15 years. I taught mostly beginning students in 5th grade and then continued with them as they progressed through high school. I also have taught adult students who were new or returning to the cello. In addition to private cello lessons, I also direct an after school string orchestra comprised of all beginning students. The students play violin, viola, and cello. I have also coached ensembles and sectionals for middle school and high school string orchestra students. I love music and I have found my calling to be teaching others to also love and
appreciate music. I enjoy working with students of all ages and levels to find ways to help them learn and enjoy playing music.

I loved taking lessons from Chrissy! She was my favorite teacher I've had! We would have fun even while she corrected my form and taught me new pieces. She was hard on me, made sure I practiced and generally made me a much better player. She charged less than most teachers and taught more than any other teacher I've had. I would strongly recommend her for any cello student looking for a great teacher!
