My first violin lesson ever went great. Michael is very knowledgeable and friendly. Definitely recommend!
Morgan M.
Michael is such a great instructor! I was worried about re-starting violin lessons as an adult but after speaking with him those worries went out the window. He is very kind, patient, and gives very helpful and constructive feedback during lessons. He seems to tailor lessons and music style to each student and gives lots of great exercises and homework/practice!

He's also very on top of scheduling and understanding when things come up (like an injured wrist). Very enthusiastic and passionate about music - I would highly recommend him as an instructor for any age!
Abel G.
Great instructor! Michael has a great attitude and is clearly very talented. He is willing to adjust the curriculum in order to accommodate my specific needs/ weaknesses. Balances core exercises, scales (including note reading homework), and music playing. We've already started playing songs together which really helps me hear the notes better!

Wonderful teacher.
Rishi and Ravi C.
I can already sense that my boys are going to have a great learning experience with Isaiah. He caught on to each child’s strengths and areas of growth in the content as well as behavioral differences. He adjusted to each one fluidly and took the time to debrief after the lesson. I’m looking forward to continuing this relationship.
Annie S.
Really brilliant teacher, has taught me saxophone from scratch. Focuses on a full range of skills in every lesson, from sound, technical exercises, jazz theory, improvisation and jazz repertoire. Have loved every lesson, and feel like I've improved significantly. Definitely recommend him to anyone wanting to learn saxophone, or how to be a jazz musician.

"My kids have been learning from Jesse for nearly two years now and we are so grateful to have found him. They had already taken a few years of ukulele, and so wanted to branch out to guitar. Now, they have started exploring several instruments (electric guitar, drum, keyboard, bass guitar/ukulele) and they look forward to their private lessons and band lesson every week. Jesse is a gem - he gives students a chance to direct their own interests in learning music (they suggest their own song choices to learn from), and encourages them to be responsible with the equipment and their practices. My kids really look up to him, and he is a fantastic role model - a great combination of skill, dedication, and teaching, but also really fun-loving. You can tell that he really loves what he does. He is also very professional and responsible, and an incredibly nice person. Highly recommended without reservation."

"Eric is an incredible musician (singer/songwriter/guitarist/producer) with the added gift of teaching. His approach is so fluid you advance greatly in a short period of time. Eric has taught me how to expand my range, have a constant and clear tone plus scream without harming my vocal chords. His calm demeanor and broad range of knowledge will give you a better sense of your musicianship."

"I think we might have potential.

Our deepest fear is not that we are inadequate.
Our deepest fear is that we are powerful beyond measure.

It is our light not our darkness that most frightens us.

We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous,
talented and fabulous?

Actually, who are you not to be?

You are a child of God.

Your playing small does not serve the world.

There's nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other

people won't feel insecure around you.

We were born to make manifest the glory of
God that is within us.

It's not just in some of us; it's in everyone.

And as we let our own light shine,
we unconsciously give other people
permission to do the same.

As we are liberated from our own fear,
Our presence automatically liberates others.

—Marianne Williamson
