Rene is incredibly knowledgeable but that doesn’t prevent him from breaking down the basics to help me as a beginning singer.

He’s very informative, explaining the why and the how, and doing so in a way that’s easy to understand. It’s helping me establish the foundations of musicality while working on the physicality of developing my muscles, mind and body, to be successful with this new skill.

Aside from the art/skill of singing, Rene has been patient and flexible with my nomadic lifestyle, which can be susceptible to weather, connectivity, and a myriad of other disruptions. I don’t wish him another student in my circumstances, but he’s been willing to work with mine!

Rene is a great guitar player and a great teacher! He has an incredible ability of assessing where you are currently at in your guitar journey and using that’s information to determine what lessons/knowledge you need in order to achieve your music goals.

I believe that music can truly heal the soul. Growing up I come from a family that loves music, and I embraced it cherish it as a pure element. A Doctor of Philosophy in Education (Ph.D.), I have a background in teaching and coaching sports, as well as giving music lessons. I am fingerprinted backgrounded checked to educate pre-school age and K-12 children and have a long history doing so. I have worked professionally with children in every age group including age 2, and adults of elderly age. I also have worked with those with ADHD, post-stroke, type 1 diabetes, etc.; I am very comfortable and sympathetic to adjustments whenever necessary. I'm a yoga instructor, and have a very easy-going vibe, though I am surprisingly organized and believe in always finding creative techniques to surpass our goals sooner than thought possible. I know whatever your goals are we can work to get you there, and I will always be here for support during and after private lessons with me.

Great first lesson, Davis is very knowledgeable and was able to answer all my questions.

David was AMAZING! And our team thoroughly enjoyed the session. I understand that I was charged incorrectly so he was not paid right for this service. I hope that you do take care of him since I did ask to verify if the price was correct when I initially requested the service.
Thanks!

Using the same techniques I use to teach voice I will help the student wishing to learn to rap . I can teach you how to rap the songs you love or, using my famous song writing techniques, help them write their own.

Ms. Karen did a pretty good job, she had ideas for the lesson and provided ideas for the next lesson. She went out of her way to help me with this new idea---------"music" and "reading music." If there was any short fall in the lesson it was on my side and my preparation failings. I have no problem recommending Ms. Karen to others. Regards, JC
Troy W.
Extremely knowledgeable! Karen is a superb guitar instructor. Honestly, I was struggling. Discouraged! She helped me understand my strengths and weaknesses, and moved me from beginner to intermediate in a matter of months. If you’re getting tired of learning from YouTube and smart phone apps, let Karen kick start your guitar playing. You’ll be glad you did. Thanks Karen!!
