I am continually impressed with the quality and content that Jarod provides me in our weekly lessons. I am an adult learner who is re-discovering music production and engineering. I tried to do self studying,but I reached a point where I need a teacher to give me some more structure to my learning. Jarod has been an excellent resource,and I look forward to our weekly lessons.

Hi! I am a young clarinet teacher who loves to share the joy of music and the beauty of this wonderful instrument. I have been playing for 11 years, and I have been teaching for 3. I love the versatility of the clarinet; did you know the clarinet has the widest dynamic range of all the woodwind instruments? My goal each lesson is for you to learn something new, see a concept from a new perspective, and have fun! The clarinet is such a fun instrument and I can't wait to help you grow as a player!

Kathryn is an amazing instructor. She is very encouraging and supportive of her students and she goes above and beyond to make sure that they understand the topic of each lesson. She works with her students to pick out pieces to learn that will fit their vocal range, as well as choosing pieces that they will enjoy. She makes a plan for each student based on their individual needs, and works with them to meet their goals. She is very knowledgeable and I would definitely recommend her as an instructor for vocal training!

"We're searching for our own voice, for the greatest version of ourselves. With lifelong experience and his own personal library of exercises hardwired into his brain, Val is the perfect instructor to lead us to the promise land. His ability to dissect what is happening inside our vocal instrument is uncanny, and he packs the ability to translate this to the student effectively. Each lesson is customized to the needs of the student, and he also involves music theory when necessary to better help us understand and visualize the task at hand.

In my time spent with Val, I have seen week to week improvements both as a singer and as a song writer. I am grateful to have connected with Val as I am excelling in my craft each day and taking the steps to reach the potential he sees in me as a vocalist and musician."

He took into account what I wanted and needed to learn and gave me plenty of stuff to work on. I was a little unsure about the online format but with a little tweaking on my end it was fine.
