Michael J.

Santa Rosa, CA

About Michael

I have been involved in music all of my life. As a child I played trumpet in band and sang in school and church choirs. My favorite movies were musicals and they still are my favorite. Music was my major in college, which included singing, dancing, acting and playing musical instruments. I like all types of music. As a school teacher, I taught 3rd. grade through high school, everything from band and choir to musical theater. I also taught private students, of all ages, piano, guitar, voice and most of the wind instruments. *** Lesson Details *** My students can expect to learn the basics of music theory, such as melody, harmony, key signature and rhythm. I want my students to have fun by learning the kind of music they like best while learning to appreciate the kind of music that ...

Michael is simply awesome. My son has been through lessons before, but they neer inspired him to practice or take his clarinet seriously. Michael's joy and interest not just in music, but in who Justice is, has made a big difference. Thanks, Michael!

Miles has not only helped me learn piano, he has introduced me to a ton of great music I had never heard before. He has been very patient and encouraging with me, and he has helped me get over my fear of playing in front of other people. Miles is an excellent, inspiring teacher!

I started taking piano lessons from Miles a year ago as a complete beginner. He's taught me how to read music, play classical music, and play a few rock and blues songs as well! My favorite part of the lesson is when I get to improvise while Miles plays with me. The lessons are always so fun and inspiring.

Ruth E.

Santa Rosa, CA

About Ruth

I've been a professional musician for many years in the classical singing world. I love all kinds of music and have been teaching for over ten years, students ages 5 to 80. I'm known for being very kind and supportive. I have two degrees in Music, one from the Guildhall School of Music and Drama in London, England. I've been active on classical choral and early music recordings and therefore I get to vote in the GRAMMYs ... my high school students usually help me to consider the Best New Artist category although I have strong opinions of my own because I love pop music too! I teach beginning piano, and all levels of singing. I've raised two great kids of my own and am married to another professional musician. I love helping people to bring more music into their lives!

Beverly J.

Santa Rosa, CA

About Beverly

I have a life long passion for the sound of the flute, and have been very lucky to have had some legendary teachers. I love passing on the tradition of great flute playing. I have played in symphony orchestras around the country, recorded albums, performed with chamber music groups, and taught at elementary, middle schools, high schools, and colleges. I enjoy teaching all levels, focusing on developing a beautiful tone, an ear for pitch and rhythm, exposure to the repertoire, and the fun of ensemble playing.

My son has been taking flute lessons from Miss Beverly for five years, and we couldn't be happier. Not only is she a terrific teacher with impeccable credentials, she's a wonderful person. She has a delightful sense of humor, is kind, and always seems to know the right thing to say. Sometimes that is encouragement, sometimes sympathy, and sometimes it's a little push. Miss Beverly's broad knowledge of the world of music is a big bonus. We look forward to our lessons each week.

She has a large range of knowledge about flute repertoire and technique.

Her love of music and passion for the flute come through in her teaching. My daughter looks forward to her coming and has improved over the years because of Beverly. I highly recommend Beverly. She is brilliant.
