Great teacher.
Mary Beth Y.
I am continuing to study cello with Jamie and I am much further along than I anticipated. I also study piano, so I am not a traditional beginner cello student. Jaime is able to fine tune my lessons to take this into account and build on it. He is very knowledgeable about proper technique as well as music theory. I would recommend him without reservation for all abilities and ages.
Maureen
Jamie worked with me when I was trying to pick up cello after not playing since high school. He is extremely knowledgeable and encouraging. He's very good at identifying problems with technique and suggesting approaches to fix them, and fun to work with.

Super friendly, helpful, and a great teacher!
Marissa
I attended a level 1 ASL class with Deaf Access Services where Chelsy was my instructor. I continued doing private tutoring with her a few months after and she is amazing! She is dedicated and passionate about ASL, she took the time to make sure I felt comfortable in what I was learning and always had resources and materials readily available. I really enjoyed my tutoring with her and learned a lot.
Scot
After suffering complete hearing loss in 1 ear and starting to gradually lose hearing in the other I decided to learn ASL. I cannot say enough about the help and encouragement I have gotten from Chelsy. My wife is also taking lessons, and it will because of Chelsy we will be able to communicate .. Thank You
