Mark has been very flexible in scheduling and very patient in explaining theory. As an adult new to violin I think he has been great in terms of explaining new concepts and being incredibly encouraging. He is also patient and realistic in his expectations of students. Greatly recommend.

Mark was very knowledgeable, funny, and patient, he really cares about his students. I’m glad that he Was referred to me by take lessons.

I came to Mark with utterly no background in the violin, wanting to start as an adult learner, and I can't imagine a better teacher than Mark. Mark is helping me gain crucial fundamentals while also learning fun pieces to strengthen those elements and encouraging me to select pieces, too.
I also like that he incorporates some music theory into his lessons.
Finally, I feel like becoming a violinist now, as an adult, isn't as crazy as I worried it might be since I have Mark to teach me.

Will was excellent! My 13-year old thoroughly enjoyed his lesson. Will was prepared and spoke in a way that was easy for my son to understand. He uses many different techniques and a multi-faceted approach to teaching so that he can develop a well-rounded musician. My son can't wait to have his next lesson with Will!
Elena
Will is AWESOME. So patient, encouraging, and keeps me engaged. I so look forward to our sessions.

Before starting lessons with Will I had never picked up an instrument before. I was so nervous to get started and had little confidence that I'd be able to learn. Will completely shattered that illusion and reminded me how good it feels to try something new!

I like to teach each lesson, for both voice and piano, by spending equal time on ear-training/sight-reading (sight-singing), music theory, technique, and repertoire.

When I teach ear-training to pianists, we do a lot of count-clapping and tonal memory drills. Count-clapping is a way to develop rhythmic accuracy. The act of speaking (counting) while clapping a rhythm activates more of the senses and therefore leaves a stronger impression on the brain, very similar to teaching reading comprehension by getting students to read aloud. Tonal memory is nothing more than developing a pianist’s listening abilities so they can quickly memorize what they’ve heard and recreate it on their instrument. I don’t teach pianists to play by ear, however, but I’ve always had great respect for musicians who have this ability.

Now, piano technique means different things to different pianists. I’m sure as I grow as a musician my thoughts will change, but after 10 years of teaching piano, here’s my ...

Unique approach which works well for the littlest ones ... the idea is to keep them interested in the Music and in the instrument so they WANT to “play” but they’re really practicing all week on their own. Great dude ...

My son Rohan has been learning Piano lessons from Mr. Stephen Mccool for about 4 years. Stephen has vast musical experience and is an excellent teacher. He's been really helping my son shape his music and his musicality with technique work and working on pieces that he really enjoy. He goes above and beyond on his musicality. He helps and support my son when he makes a bad move and he helps my son figure out what the pieces mean to him and what they could mean to my son in a way that focuses on the music. Even through the pandemic and completing lessons virtually, he delivered excellently without any delays. My son always looks forward to this piano classes. Stephen is fair but firm with students and I highly recommend him for any student who wants to learn piano. Thank you Stephen for your continuing efforts to present music as a logical, creative, fun, understandable art!
Keaton
I really enjoyed my lessons with Stephen. I'm an adult with some musical experience from college and high school, but not much. He brought a level of energy to our lessons that made them engaging and motivating. He came prepared with lesson goals, but also was flexible enough to work on specific things and songs that I wanted to study. Working with Stephen has given me tools to effectively use my voice and to feel more confident in reading music. After our 10 lessons I have significant improvement in both range and ability. I started without being able to sight-read very well, and now I feel much more confident.

My approach to teaching is simple. The primary goal is to have fun and enjoy the experience of making and creating music. Whether you are interested in pursuing a career in music or just wanting to add a bit of a creative outlet to your life, I can help.

My specialties include jazz, r&b, and pop piano styles. I do teach a little classical but primarily to beginners only. My curriculum is simple. I try to teach you what it is YOU want to know and that which fit your needs. There are some fundamentals that we all must learn, but typically I can have you playing a song your first lesson. As you progress, you will be able to learn to play songs on your own and interpret simple chord charts with melody.

Buzz will help you get on the right track to become the kind of musician that you want to be. He has an incredible wealth of musical knowledge and experience that he is capable of sharing in a way that anyone can understand and appreciate. I highly recommend taking lessons with Buzz.
Kara B.
Buzz is amazing! I love how he teaches what the kids want to learn, as opposed to what the teacher wants to teach. My son quickly took to Buzz and my son does not quickly take to many people. My son loves his lessons and I love hearing him play. I can not say enough about how happy I am we found Buzz and how my child has flourished as a pianist.
Emily W.
We have loved Buzz as our piano teacher. We started lessons with him when we didn’t own our own piano. He had an extra keyboard and lent it to us. He is talented, knowledgeable, patient and kind. He has been an excellent instructor for my son. We look forward to more lessons with him.

"Miss Ashley is quickly and diligently finding the gaps in my 12yr old daughter's Tap/Jazz training! Ashley is intelligent, energetic, observant and is quick to clarify what she means verbally. She can superbly demonstrate in minute details the technique of any movement being discussed. Refreshing. :) Every minute with her is a learning moment. We've seen in 3 lessons that she can fuse genre or she can approach them from the purist's perspective, and she can review choreography and offer guidance in an age appropriate manner. My daughter is already looking much cleaner in her technique than she, herself, thought possible. Hope. You're in excellent hands with Miss Ashley. For the hesitant, she's no doubt worth the rates she quotes for an individual lesson. If you want to get A to B, this is your teacher. Come to her with an agenda, and she'll help you get through it. My child loves her. Good luck and Keep Dancing!"
