All is well on the first day of class!
Alex Ivanov
Claire is extremely patient, positive, and most importantly knowledgeable. After only five lessons, she's given me a lot to work with and I can without a doubt say my singing has improved.

I recommend Claire to anyone interested in improving their singing, regardless of skill level, age, style, etc. She's fantastic!

I really like to cater to what each individual student wants to learn. I prefer focusing on learning songs in addition to doing "bookwork", especially initially. I feel like its my job as a teacher to first make music fun first, and then introduce and refine concepts about technique, theory, etc. in a way that works for each unique student. I really try to encourage a student's curiosity about music. I like getting outside of the box; talking about for instance, the physics of sound, or the history of composition during a lesson. I am a huge theory nerd, and I really try to introduce those concepts in a way that is both easy to grasp and more practical than what you might take away from the typical 8am college course. I really try and go where the student wants to, whether that be guiding them thru some songwriting or learning a classic Richie Blackmore solo.

About Timothy

I have been teaching for over 15 years. I live for music, and love the opportunity to share that joy with others. I've toured all across the US and Europe, both as a guitarist and a sound engineer. I've also worked as a session guitarist since the age of 16. I'm fluid in a number of different genre

Tim’s doing a great job teaching our 9 yr old how to play guitar. He’s very patient!
Jessica
Our 9 year old son has been getting guitar lessons from Tim for the last 2 years and we couldn’t be happier. Tim was very patient with him as a beginner and kept it simple until he learned the basics. He does a great job of relating to the kids and making it fun for them while educating them on technique through their progression. Our son really looks forward to going to lessons and can’t thank Tim enough for his instruction and mentorship to our little Rockstar!
Aidyn
Love Tim. He teaches what the student is ready to learn which has kept me interested in guitar lessons for the past 2 years. No workbooks. He encourages me to try any new song I want. Sometime I ask for a lesson in music theory, song writing, or a little piano. He’s just a cool guy and very relatable.

Before learning Classical and Jazz guitar in school, I was a full on Rocker!!! I played SRV/Hendrix style blues rock to what is now old school metal...Metallica, Iron Maiden, Megadeth, etc.
I loved early Prog Rock, pre-era of a million extra strings and down tuned everything. I still love to shred, so if you're still reading this, we may be a fit. Thanks!!!!

Great first day!
Jim
I recently started taking lessons with Kenny to try to learn some basic lead guitar in a one on one setting. I've been very impressed with his preparation, taking the time to tailor the lesson to my level of play and the music I am interested in playing. He also is very encouraging and is interested in my learning and progress, even going beyond the one hour lesson time to ensure that I have the tools necessary to continue to work at home.

Great 1 st lesson. He was patient and supportive with the kids!

Whether you're a beginner, an intermediate or advanced, my electric guitar lessons cater to all!

All ages are welcome! We will definitely learn songs, but in order to truly become an amazing musician you must also focus on building strong technique. Taking lessons with me will ensure that you’ll be able to learn songs and parts by ear. No more tabs! Here’s what we’ll focus on:
- building technique
- transcribing songs and solos
- learning theory
- ear training
- learning to read

Feel free to message me at any time if you have any questions!

"My 13-years old son was reluctant to take music lessons. He had not liked piano (with a different instructor) when he was younger, but agreed to try guitar. Since the first trial lesson, he has been excited to learn more!

Chris is a fun teacher who knows his stuff and who communicates well with both his students and their parents. I have three kids and have found it’s difficult to find a teacher who is responsive to parents + engaging with youth + gifted at music.

His rates are very reasonable for our area. His in-home lesson space is professional and comfortable — I get to sit on a comfy couch and get work done during my son’s weekly lesson. In addition, Chris goes above and beyond to make sure the lessons are meeting our expectations. He tracked down strings for us when we accidentally broke one. He has rescheduled lessons due to our busy schedules. He is genuinely kind and such a pleasure to work with — we couldn’t be more thrilled!"

"Ahmad is the BEST! I usually feel pretty self-conscious when learning something new, but never the case with Ahmad. Weekly lessons were always super fun and a great escape from work. He individualizes his classes and keeps your preferred genre in mind. He even wrote out the music based on youtube videos of my favorite songs (guitar or not!) Very talented and knowledgeable about his craft. Cannot think of one negative thing. SUPERB!"
