I had a great first lesson with Jessica. The lesson took place in a comfortable studio in her house. We discussed my goals and then reviewed where I am currently. She paid carefully attention to my body position with the bow and had several great suggestions on exercises to improve it. I'm already looking forward to the next lesson.

Jessica is very nice!

I really enjoy taking piano lessons with Jessica. It had been 40 years since I took lessons (as a teenager). Jessica's manner as well as her knowledge and love of music is just what I was hoping to find in a teacher. Her ability to explain musical concepts and her thoughtful approach to teaching has far surpassed my expectations. She gives great constructive feedback and ensures that you understand what she is saying. She is very positive and patient. I thoroughly enjoy my lessons with her and recommend her strongly.

Mark has been a great teacher for this adult beginner! I take lessons in clawhammer banjo and ukulele with him, and his easy-going nature and skill in identifying ways to improve make it a joyful experience! Highly recommend.
SK
Mr. Sylvester is one of the greatest. He is not just an amazing guitarist, but he is also very kind. He treats people with so much respect. He speaks to me and my mom so nicely. He is very patient. He has a deep knowledge of music and knows how to get the most out of even the least talented people (like me!). He doesn't ever get mad if you make a mistake or forget to bring your music notes. We were so lucky to find Mr. Sylvester.
Virginia
Mark is a talented musician who plays and teaches multiple stringed instruments. His lessons are always informative and supportive. They are driven by the student’s interest, so anything you want o learn— styles of music, how to do a particular technique, music theory— you can bring to class. And every now and then he organizes a recital— terrifying but great practice!

Anj really pushed me to move forward in my guitar playing, highlighting problem areas I was unaware of. I noticed a dramatic improvement in my playing after learning with him.

Anj is very knowledgeable with not only guitar knowledge, but also knows a lot about music theory, audio engineering, studio techniques, performing and live audio, industry strategy, business, and more. He’s friendly, enthusiastic, and is very good with positive reinforcement. Give him a shot, you won’t regret it.

I have been a student of Tim’s for a little over a year now. I started playing guitar at age 52 and when I started with Tim I was very close to giving up or settling on just being able to strum a few chords. I have had many hand injuries in the past that have resulted in arthritis and lack of dexterity in my wrists and some of my fingers and I started doubting I would ever be able to progress in my ability to play. From the very first lesson where I told Tim about my hand issues and my frustrations, he told me he was sure we could work around any physical limitations I had, and he was right. Tim has been able to work with me on alternative ways to play the chords I was having trouble with and has shown me that these alternate techniques along with the bit of music theory he sprinkles into lessons can really expand my ability to play.

In the time I have been studying with Tim, I have done more than I thought I ever could. I went from a frustrated beginner guitar player to having enough confidence to play on stage with some of Tim’s other students and I am now looking forward to what I will be able to do on the guitar instead of being frustrated with what I can’t do.

Tim is a talented and passionate musician as well as a knowledgeable and very relatable instructor which is a rare combination and he's also a really great guy and any student of any age or ability will benefit from studying with him.
Sam
Tim is an excellent guitar teacher and an overall great guy. He provided me with structure and support, enabling me to make the most out of my practice and ultimately progress as a player. His warm personality and contagious enthusiasm for music kept me looking forward to our time together each week. He was also very flexible when it came to scheduling to accommodate for my dynamic schedule.
Brad
Tim is an excellent teacher, providing excellent advice, practice techniques, and insights. He makes learning and improving easy and enjoyable.

"As an adult with no former knowledge or lessons on piano, I was a bit hesitant to find a teacher. But after the first lesson with Troy I knew that concern was completely unfounded. Troy is great at helping the student progress at their own preferred pace, while still ensuring that each lesson provides significant progress. In my experience he is very flexible with an unpredictable schedule, and is reliable and consistent about communication. I would recommend troy for any piano student, especially those starting later in life like myself"

I had work with Ms. Machado for many months and I enjoy her approach and care for excellence. She always had good suggestions, but you need to practice.
She is very kind and reliable, as well as flexible. She knows how to make music fun and shows the right way to accomplish difficult problems.

I highly recommend her for both the piano and violin lessons."

"Excellent Teacher!

Mr. Keene is a remarkable piano teacher. My son did not want to take piano lessons but Mr. Keene inspired him to play the piano and play it well. My son has been with Mr Keene for just a few months and my son's piano playing has greatly improved. I was worried about having a teacher go too slow though the books and lessons but Mr. Keene has worked at a great pace and moved my son along adequately and he has learned so much. I am very impressed. He is very knowledgable and we highly recommend Mr. Keene for piano!"

5 Common Mistakes of Beginner Guitarists

Buying your first guitar and strumming your very first note can be an exciting feeling - and that's only the beginning!  Pretty soon, you'll be mastering major and minor chords, impressing your friends and family with full songs and spouting off music theory.  And of course, next comes venturing on stage, sold-out shows and hearing the roar of the crowd, right? Before you get too far ahead of yourself, it's important to evaluate your playing style and make sure you have good practice habits …
