I've had several piano teachers over the years. Isaiah is by far the best. He is patient and extremely knowledgeable.
Erik H.
For someone who has never taken a private music lesson before I able to relax and begin learning about music literacy and music theory by Isaiah's ability to express and articulate the fundamentals of guitar in a simplified way. It was rewarding to leave the lesson with new techniques to practice and have fun with.

Terrific. Great with kids

Barry Harris, the great Jazz pianist, and educator says, “I have such a ball in my classes, and I learn so much from my students. They probably don’t realize that I come to school here, too. I’m just the oldest member of the class. I wish everyone could experience the blessing of learning new things all the time.”

The above statement describes how I feel when I am teaching. I have been playing and performing for over 20 years in many capacities, and still, music continues to teach me new things every time. Not only do I want to share that experience with you, but I also want to guide you into having that experience for yourself.

He made sure that I fully understood what I had learn in that one hour session including the type of guitar I wanted to use, reading notes and chords, playing a few strings, sitting comfortably, and most importantly, he is patient and he answered my questions by giving me detailed explanations."

Going out to a match-up site you never know what you're going to get and I have to say that we could not have gotten any luckier finding him right from the start. Great teacher, great people skills, friendly, on time, courteous, just a good person. Will continue lessons with Jeremie for the foreseeable future. Highly recommend for anyone trying to learn guitar."
