Great Instructor

Gene is a great instructor. He is very kind and attentive. I'm a beginner and I do mean beginner. But Gene takes time and let's me know that I can accomplish playing regardless of my age. I'm an old hippy! So learning songs like "Imagine" and "Knocking on Heavens Door" is right up my alley! I look forward to my classes! Here comes the 54 year old hippy with guitar on her hip!!!

Francesca is patient and intuitive, meaning that she seems to understand just what you need in a lesson and leads you right to it. I am looking forward to learning so much more!!"

"I admire Rob as a singer so much. His tone is so good and he makes live performance look so effortless. I'm not that strong of a singer yet, but we are making progress to improve my tone. He's also teaching me how to deliver a stronger performance using stage presence and movement, as well as voice. It helps that he has a great ear for pitch too, so I know when I am singing well. He's encouraging as well as honest, and I look forward to showing off my improved skills sometime soon!"

"Mark played for my wedding, and I was incredibly impressed. I had certain musical portions of my wedding pre-arranged, but those plans ended up falling apart. Mark was able to pick up and play beautiful music right when I needed him to. His flexibility and willingness to go the extra mile helped make my wedding as successful as it was! He really saved the day, and I'm so thankful he was there! If I couldn't have him at other future events, I would be happy to take any of his students because I know they would have learned from one of the best."

What's the Best Violin for Fiddle Playing?

Many instruments are mass produced in factories, producing batches that all sound the same. On the contrary, fiddles are not usually built this way.  The best sounding ones are handmade, and therefore, all unique.  When musicians are looking to buy a …
