Ms. Strange was so helpful during my time working with her! She's patient, kind, has a wonderful sense of humor, but above all that: an outstanding cellist.
John
Mrs. Strange is the best teacher I have ever had. She is always well prepared going into every lesson. The lessons are clear, concise, and constructive. She does her best to adjust her teaching style to you for the best progress possible. Mrs. Strange gets to know you and cares for every student equally. She does not view you as another student because every student is important to her. You can go to her for any problems you are having with technique, tone quality, sound projection, or any other problem you may have as a student and she will work through the problems with you until you feel comfortable enough to move on to other troubles you are having. Every lesson with Mrs. Strange has a reason, you will never waste time or money with her as a teacher because she can help you achieve new heights as a musician and then surpass them. She taught me everything I needed to know in order to make it into a university for music performance and she still helps me to this day when I am struggling. I recommend her as a teacher to anyone who wants to become a better musician.

Ray is an amazing teacher. My 11-year-old has high-functioning autism and has a great interest in learning music. I was hesitant to hire just any teacher, as many teachers don't have the patience and understanding to work with special needs kids. However, Ray has been not only patient, but he has an exceptional way of teaching my son in a way that he would understand and retain the information. Ray is creative, intuitive, and experienced. My son is very happy and enjoys the lesson every single time. Thanks Ray.

Online Music Theory Teacher

I tutor both western classical and jazz music theory and composition. To enroll in theory and composition lessons, a musical background on an instrument is not necessary. However, learning an instrument in tandem to theory lessons is strongly encouraged since it will be more rewarding to be able to apply what you have learned. I teach lessons in guitar, bass guitar and ukulele, but as a music education graduate, I have training on most western instruments. If you play another instrument, such as brass, strings, woodwinds, percussion, or voice, then I can adapt theory lessons to your particular instrument. Whether you are interested in writing songs casually to share with friends or preparing for music study in college and a career in music, I can develop our music theory lessons accordingly.

If you are a beginner with music, we will start with learning notes, intervals, scales, chords, rhythms, and reading notation. You will also learn to play these on your instrument. You will ...

Bill taught me everything I know about playing the guitar. He made the learning process fun. His enthusiasm about music in general is contagious. I would highly recommend Bill Rice to anyone looking to learn the guitar.

My daughter has taken a few piano and voice lessons. She didn’t want to go back due to her experiences with other teachers. after her first
Lesson she thanked me for putting her back in lessons with Ms. Tanisha. She said she felt very comfortable and relaxed and felt as if she is a good fit for her to help her with her craft. Thank you for being a great teacher!

Best teacher on the planet plus she is an incredible singer. The voice lessons are fun, joyful and I have learned more from her with several lessons than I learned about singing any other time any where. She is a master of teaching music!

"So easy even this old timer can get it

Tim is an excellent, patient and caring instructor. I am a brand new guitar owner from a rural area in North Dakota. I was looking for a guitar teacher but all required a 30-60 minute drive. I found Tim through the Betterfly website and have taken several lessons through Skype. It has been a great experience that I would recommend to anyone from beginner on up"

She customizes the lesson to my son's needs. I have seen a major difference in a short period of time, with his sight reading, playing by ear, playing scales and chords. I would definitely recommend her and will be taking lessons as long as she is teaching."

"Kelly really knows her theory, inside and out. And she can explain how it all works. It's much easier to memorize a piece once you understand the theory behind it: the progression of the chords, and their functions. I wish my former teachers had known theory instead of making me memorize all those notes with no explanation."
