I hired Garrett to work with my two boys ages 8 and 11 during the quarentine. Initially we started online and my two kids had never DJ before. Garrett was able to build rapport very quickly and create a lesson plan for each child that met them where the are developmentally. Garrett used his wide range of music knowledge and natural teaching abilities to create a really fun and engaged learning environment. Once we could safely meet in person, Garrett 's skill as a teacher was even more spectacular. He has helped my kids become real DJ's, find a deeper appreciation for music and has built up their confidence in being able to perform and share music with friends. Garrett has never been late for a lesson and even takes extra time and goes out of his way for his students. He is incredibly professional and has a real gift at connecting with his students. He was the bright light during COVID for my entire family. We cannot thank him enough for all his hard work and the abundance of music that his brought to our home.

Garrett is incredibly personable and knowledgeable, the best attributes of a great teacher! I've learned so much from him already and am looking forward to more to come in future lessons. I'd highly recommend Garrett to learn basics and beyond of dj'ing.

Learn Music Theory and How to Read Music today!

I can teach you:
-how to read notes
-how to read rhythms
-how to identify and construct scales
-how to recognize key signatures
-how chords are created and the different types and qualities of chords
-common chord progressions

I extensively studied music theory at the bachelors degree level, which was ENORMOUSLY helpful in my understanding of how music works in general, and with how to read music in particular. I’ve learned how to sight-read music, as well as how to sight-sing (sing simple melodies from musical notation). I use my understanding of music theory as a support when I write my own music, as well as when learning to play new songs.

Sing Jazz like you have never done before by learning and applying techniques that you will learn during your lessons. Techniques like breathing, scatting, articulating, projecting and expanding your range just to name a few. Have fun learning how to "jazz it up" while taking lessons with Lorna.

Lorna is absolutely awesome. Patient, professional, understanding and fun! I have progressed in a few weeks alone despite the fact that I haven’t been able to practice that much. If you’re looking for a teacher... look no further!

Lorna takes the time to get to know you and your voice. I feel very confident having such a devoted and talented teacher as my singing coach.
She is literally helping me to find my voice.
Josephine
Professor Lorna has been the music teacher I’ve needed all my life!

I have been taking singing lessons with Professor Lorna for about 3 months now.

During this time period, she has not only helped me develop my voice but my singing confidence as well. Professor Lorna pushes me out of my comfort zone every class! She sees the potential in me and has helped me bring out that voice that I have been hiding. I need more practice but she define you knows what she’s doing! Even my family has noticed my singing growth with the technique Professor Lorna has taught me.

I am very happy that I found Professor Lorna. She is a woman filled with knowledge in all things of music and very talented! With much patience, practice, and continuing to take her lessons I know that she will continue to assist me in evolving my talent and helping me become that great singer I aspire to be.
I hope that I can grow under her wings and eventually master all that she’s taught me. Professor Lorna is what I’d call “The Master.”

Musical Theater is an area of Music that I love to teach. Each year my Students perform in a "Musical Review" that I put on and are in a myriad of Musical Productions throughout their studies. Students have performed in many Musical Theater Companies and are currently in a number of productions at the same time. I help them with this process, from auditions, to preforming to the best of their abilities in whatever they choose to be a part of. It is a joy to go their performances and see the progress they make!

You want to play music that means something to you. The music that moves you. I’m pretty sure it’s not Twinkle, Twinkle Little Star.

I promise you, no stifling method books with hokey songs and no rote practice of scales with no end in site.

We'll pick a song you want to learn.

I’ll identify the techniques you need to play it and provide you with skill building exercises. We’ll look at the structure of the song and anything else to help you learn it. If the song requires advanced techniques, I’ll break it down into what you can do now; we’ll use the remainder to guide your development.

Although you’ll follow a logical progression of skill building, I believe learning in the context of songs the student knows and enjoys is the best approach for teens and adults.

I teach adult beginner rock guitar players. You are not too old to start playing guitar! I believe learning in the context of songs the student knows and enjoys is the best approach for adults. So I start out by finding out what you listen to, who inspires you musically, and what songs you would

"I love working with Gabriel! He is so in tune, no pun intended, with me. Each lesson is tailored for me and his encouragement has been priceless. Gabe wants nothing more than for you to be your best self and encourages one to experiment and step out of their comfort zone. Because of this, I have seen such improvement, not only my singing, but in my attitude and confidence in my voice. His lessons are always exciting and I learn something new each time. I look forward to our lessons and his words of wisdom, honest critiques, and knowing I can try anything without judgement."

He really helps to improve singing range, especially in head voice and the higher pitches. I definitely feel more confident in my singing. Jameson really makes a singer make a song his or her own by the way that he incorporates feelings and actions. The Alexander Technique really helps in singing and in every day activities."

"I had been playing for 25+ years and wanted to learn some applied theory and some jazz. I made a great decision choosing Jared. I took lessons from Jared for 3 years, it was a great experience!

A few key things about Jared I want to share:
- He is always prepared and does his homework
- Incredibly knowledgably and patient
- He finds a way to explain things so they make sense
- Always goes above and beyond what I expected
- He provides materials to aid in learning from videos, backing tracks, tablature and musical notation
- Always smiling and happy to be teaching music

I easily recommend Jared as a teacher to players looking to learn music from beginner though to advanced level. It was an absolute pleasure to be Jared’s student."
