As an adult with no singing experience ever, I was quite nervous to try my first singing lesson. Naara put me right at ease from the very beginning and made me excited to come back. Her advice is spot on and delivered in a very supportive way. I learned a lot and gained so much confidence with my singing in very little time. I would highly recommend Naara for voice lessons.

Very Attentive and not afraid to give honest opinion!

Naara was very attentive in listening to my needs. She pointed out my strengths and weaknesses. After failing to get an interview with my church worship director to be a worship team member, Naara reestablished my confidence in my abilities. She is helping me with breathing exercises that will help me achieve my goal of singing the National Anthem at a sporting event. Within the next week I will be in a studio to make a CD of singing the National Anthem for audition with the Seattle Mariners. Thanks Naara!

I have been bringing my son to Phil for a little over a year now. He is fantastic and has been wonderful to have working with my son. My son was 7 at the time and has since turned 8, he is doing so well that he is ready to play in a kids band. Phil has done a very good job teaching my son the ups and downs of playing music and also has done a very good job of making it fun for him so he hasn't lost interest. I would highly recommend taking lessons from Phil.

Great Teaching

Phil was my teacher starting from 7th grade all the way through high school and I had a blast. He prepared me for playing the full drumset in my school's jazz band. I can proudly say that I became one of the most prepared and technically advanced drummers in my class because of him and still remember most of the techniques I learned 10 years later. He also made drumming engaging and fun and truly helped instill in me a desire to drum the rest of my life, even though its not actually my career.
Additionally, when I got good enough, Phil helped me join a rock band with three student guitarists at the School of Rock, which was fantastic because then I was able to actually apply what I learned and diversify my drumming. Overall, I look back on Phil's teaching as being an incredibly rewarding experience for me and if I had kids who wanted to play drums, I would totally have him teach them. Thanks again Phil.

rian is a good teacher

he is the only piano teacher i have had. i was teaching myself piano and was given some lessons as a gift, and i chose him somewhat randomly from the teachers listed on takelessons dot com. i had several lessons from him and he gave me lots of good ideas. i would have continued with him, but for circumstances out of my control. i would recommend him as a teacher. he has lots of experience and can tailor his teaching depending on what you want to do

Rian is patient which is what I needed. He makes you feel comfortable and has a low key way of pointing out areas for improvement without offending.Would recommend him to others who want to play piano, regardless of how old you are.

Will is a highly knowledgeable and relatable instructor

With Will’s patience and easy instruction I am slowly learning the instrument that I love. Will is always prepared for our session with hand outs and a lesson plan. I appreciate that he is willing to take our lesson in a different direction then originally planned depending on my progression. His style is very laid back while still having expectations of your development which is nice because this pushes me to do the work. I highly recommend Will as your instructor.

About Joe

SUMMARY I'm dedicated to mentoring the next generation of influential artists. With a focus on the mentoring of students, as opposed to a conventional method of teaching, I like to develop more than just an understanding of music within my students. I enjoy working closely with each student to help them develop an understanding of themselves and help them learn how to apply that understanding musically. I always put the needs of my students first. Whether it's staying late to help the student understand the lesson being taught, offering advice and presence to assist a student in overcoming the nerves of a first performance, or being there to listen when personal struggles arise, I offers far more than just an understanding of notes and rhythm. I offer an understanding of what it takes

Outstanding

I was only able to take a few lessons from Joe because of an upcoming military deployment. In the few weeks that I had, I made great strides and I feel went from being an extreme beginner a low level intermediate guitar player.

Joe has an incredible ability of breaking things down in a way that are easy for the student to understand and is very focused on helping you meet your goals!

I would absolutely recommend Joe to anyone! Outstanding dude!!

The man, the myth, the legend, Joe W.

I have been taking lessons with Joe since 2010 and I don't know anyone who is better than this guy. Because of a car accident I was in I don't have fully functioning fingers sometimes. Joe was so patient and kind with me. He is always pushing me to take chances and try new things. After 3 years I am able to play the guitar, sing, play for church events, transposing, and entertain the masses!! Joe has helped me arrange music for weddings, holidays, etc. Joe is seriously the best of the best. I drive an hour every week just to take lessons, because he is that good.

Great Teacher!

My son has been taking lessons with Joe for over 5 years. Joe is a wonderful teacher. We truly couldn't ask for a better fit for him. He is fun and also expects him to do his work. My son has Asperger's so teaching can be a challenge. Joe has learned exactly how my son learns and by not expecting him to understand and learn exactly the same way as others, I feel like T has learned SO much.
I would highly recommend Joe to anyone I know that wants a good experience to learn music and be passionate about it as well.
