I'm an intermediate player who needed refinement and refresher of my core techniques. I went to Elizabeth because she has a background in both fiddle & classical. After watching me play, she affirmed that which I was doing correctly and then helped me to improve where I was lacking. I would recommend Elizabeth.

She asked me what I wanted to learn and assisted me in a very patient way, and showed me the correct way of strumming and whatever else that was needed. A very good start.
Alyson
Felicia is a great teacher! We work well together, she asks how I want to learn and she helps me to understand what I’m learning! As an adult learner, it helps that she can modify my lesson to suit my specific needs. I think this will be a great partnership!!
Autumn
Felicia has truly helped me improve on the viola. From spotting my wrong bow hold to making sure that I am absolutely positive on where the fingerings are for the key, she has most definetly improved my playing over all and is helping me advance past most of my peers in my school orchestra.

I can't say enough good things about Mr. Blackwell. He is an incredible teacher that gives you what you need at your level. If you are looking for a knowledgeable and patient instructor, Mr. Blackwell is for you! Going on 3 years and I am looking forward to the next 3 years.

Thank you!

Luther is an excellent and patient teacher. I’ve been playing guitar for nearly a decade, but have been self-taught and always neglected working on the fundamentals. With extra time on my hands during the COVID-19 pandemic, I decided to try online guitar lessons. Luther took me back to square one and has made sure I get everything perfect before moving on. It’s making me a much more consistent and disciplined guitarist, and I’m learning to read music for the first time. I wasn’t sure how useful remote guitar lessons would be before I started, but was pleased to discover that Luther makes it an excellent way to learn.

"We had our first lesson on Violin last week, and my son has been quite happy and pleased with Damien. We initially were not sure if we had chosen the right person as Damien's main instrument was not Violin. We are sure now & have not made a mistake by choosing Damien.
He was very helpful and followed up twice after the lesson on next steps & what my son needs to practice before next week."

"Sylvia is very good at taking the time to explain the reasons behind the why of doing certain things. Being an adult with no musical background what so ever she has really taken the time to teach me some basic fundamentals that are helping me build the solid foundation that I so very much want and need. Beyond the time we spend with one-on-one instructions she challenges me with exercises to practice on between our meetings. I explained to Sylvia what I was looking for and she has centered the training and instructions around that to ensure that my goals are being met. She is a pleasure to work with and learn from."
