Learned a lot

Teresa is a teriffic teacher and takes a lot of pride in her work. She took her time with me and introduced me to a new way of delivery and breathing that helped with my speed and articulation. Teresa introduced new items to each lesson that made it a constant learning experience. Teresa is not only patient, but pleasant and I will be continuing my lessons with her this summer for my "tune up".
Laudon S. Rochester, NY

About Laudon

When I first heard my dad play "Blackbird," I was hooked. I borrowed my little brother's guitar and started teaching myself from some old Hal Leonard books. There was something so exhilarating about making a piece of wood produce beautiful sounds. Soon I was taking lessons on electric guitar, playing Jimi Hendrix and Eric Clapton. My teacher at the time pushed me toward classical guitar and I starting attending evening classes at the local community college when I was in high school. I fell in love with making music and decided to make it my career. I earned my Bachelor's of Music from Arizona State University, studying under Frank Koonce. During my first few years there, I focused on technique and commissioning new works for the guitar, while exploring the vast repertoire of music ...

It is with great pleasure that I recommend Laudon as a guitar instructor. I have had the privilege of studying with him for a year and have been most impressed by his knowledge of music theory, technique and performance. Laudon has crafted a lesson strategy that ensures that I will reach my personal artistic goals as quickly as possible. He listens carefully to my questions and answers them by using visual references that enhance my understanding of challenging concepts. Not only does Laudon share his expansive knowledge of music in a relaxed, comfortable manner to students of all ages and walks of life, he does so with warmth and humor. It would be impossible to find a better musical mentor and coach. In sci-fi terms, the force is strong with him!

If you want to learn guitar, this is your guy.

As a guitar player with already some years of experience, Keith was able to guide me in a way that others could not. With his friendly attitude and vast knowledge of the instrument, I was immediately hooked on wanting to learn all I could and Keith is gladly accompanying me on the journey. Beginner or advanced this is the teacher for you.

What a great teacher!

Keith Silliman is a talented musician who meets me where I am at as an adult learner of piano. He is magically able to help me play music rather than just notes.

my piano teacher Keith S. makes learning piano fun.

My piano teacher has a relaxed approach that makes our lessons comfortable. He creates an environment that makes me feel at ease and able to enjoy learning piano. We focus on timing and rhythmn patterns and he will sometimes play the same notes next to me so I can see his hand position and learn when I would change to accommodate my playing the piece. Keith is a wonderful teacher and I appreciate his comments and direction.
Rhonda F. Rochester, NY

About Rhonda

I started taking piano lessons in the first grade from a teacher who graduated from Eastman School of Music. I later won a scholarship to Eastman School of Music as a classical pianist. I have been teaching for 33 years and have performed in Europe and won First Place Piano Competition in New York with 200 of the best pianists in the nation performing. I wanted to quit in the 5th grade but my mother told me I was to young to make that decision for myself and she would not hear of it! Music is now like the air that I breathe. I cannot live without it! Thanks mom for being smarter than me. Playing the piano should be fun at any cost. I let students play many styles of music until they find the style that calls them. *** Lesson Details *** Lessons are and should be a fun experience. I ...

Fabulous Piano Teacher

I took lessons for 5 years and I play better than I ever dreamed. I enjoyed the lessons and understood the teaching with ease. Expect to have great lessons with your head spinning with tons of information after each lesson from this gifted teacher. Very enjoyable and rewarding experience to say the least. I never again found such a great teacher since taking with Rhonda. I was heartbroken when she moved.
