*** Lesson Details ***
"Lessons begin where the student is." That's my axiomatic principle. What do you know, and what are you able to do? Now, what do you want to know, and what do you want to be able to do? Lessons are a journey from that first point to the second. And I am your guide.

*** Studio Equipment ***
Fully equipped music production studio, w/latest software & hardware, 88 key sample grand piano, guitars (acoustic & electric), bass, upright bass, amp, mandolin, harmonicas, ukelele, 5-string banjo

*** Specialties ***
I have extensive experience in a wide variety of styles. These include classical, jazz, several styles of blues, country, various ethnic, rock, and pop styles.

Michael is an excellent instructor. Regardless of your skill level, he takes a logical approach to learning an instrument (for me it's the accordion) my gains in my time with him have been amazing.

Patient and Knowledgeable

Michael is great at listening to what I want to learn, and then teaching it to me in a way that I can understand easily. Also, he's very patient when there's a skill / technique that I'm trying to figure out how to master.

This is one of my main instruments. I will teach the proper way of playing this instrument to prevent injury. I can teach any style and any type of music.

*** Lesson Details ***
In my lessons I take a step by step approach on learn how to move and how to understand the instrument at hand. I require all of my students to learn how to read sheet music and how to translate onto their instrument. I'm a laid back teacher and will teach what is most appealing t
o the student but in an academic style. I teach the student not just to play but to understand what it is he or she is playing. I will cater to any level of playing and help give a path to further their knowledge of playing.

Carissa Austria, age 8, learned piano with Jeff. Her lessons were instrumental in giving her the incentive to practice on her own. Jeff created lessons that made my daughter curious on how to play on her own and experimented with certain keys and sounds. Thank you Jeff for giving my daughter the deep insight to playing the piano not only from her weekly lessons but encouraging her to practice on her own with minimum supervision.

Sincerely
Gerry Austria

I teach classical, jazz and bluegrass on the upright bass, or pretty much any style you can imagine. i teach all levels and have a lot of fun with my students.

I have been enthusiastically teaching music lessons since I finished my Bachelor of Music in 2004. I have students of all ages and demographics. I focus on making learning to play an instrument fun and not mundane. I teach guitar, piano, electric and upright bass. It works out great if there are multiple people in the family wanting to study different instruments. My performance experience ranges from Bach to Hendrix. And I have the ability to help you reach your musical interests and goals whether it be just for fun at home or if you dream of being a professional musician on stage, I can get
you there.

I found Brian to be a very good instructor. He was always on time, very patient, and was very knowledgable about all the different types of music styles. I was a slow learner and he was able to work with my difficulties and he found a way that worked for me. He is very personable and easy to get along with. I'd highly recommend him.
