It a great experience so far !

Keith is great! My nearly 6 year old son has only been seeing Keith for a few weeks, but he’s already learned so much. Keith is everything you want in a teacher - he’s funny, patient and has a really great way of explaining drumming concepts is such a way that even a student as young as my son can grasp. Even my son has said Keith is a great teacher!

Private Music Performance Teacher

For me, performing live any type of music I set my mind to was the ultimate goal in taking up an instrument. If my student has the same goal in mind, I have years of experience from playing concert halls to dive bars and basements in all manner of musical contexts. I can prepare the body and the mind for anything and everything performing requires.

Travis was great. He paced the lesson right for my daughter and started instilling some fundamentals that she was missing. He is kind and friendly. And a great musician!

About Joseph

Joey aka CelloJoe is an anomaly in the world of cellists. By combining cello with beatboxing, he has created a unique genre: Classical Hip Hop.  CelloJoe records live on stage with a loop pedal and produces intricate tapestries of harmony, melody, and rhythm. His beatboxing (vocal percussion

Andrew
Joe was able to work with my daughter to approach some very complex material (using Abelton live to live loop and edit her songs) at a pace and with a vocabulary and tone that completely defused an otherwise intimidating situation. His calm, steady manner spiced with just the right touch of dry wit and his keen ear for a mean beat kept the lessons fun and very productive. Joey's not just a fantastic and unique musician and teacher, however, he's a great person and a fantastic influence to have in your life.
Ken
Joey is the best! A lesson from Joey is always a highlight of the week. I'd be surprised if you don't feel the same based on his talent, his warmth, his humor, and his intelligence.
Courtney
My 10 year old son has loved his piano lessons with Joey. We had excellent in-person cello lessons in the past, and the video piano lessons have been just as effective. Joey has several camera angles set up in his home so my son can see Joey's hands on the keyboard in real time during the lesson. We get a Zoom link for each visit and a recording of the visit afterwards, which helps with practicing during the week. I highly recommend Joey as a patient and talented instructor! The lessons have been a great activity / distraction for my active son during shelter in place. It's a win-win!

My name is Jerry. I LOVE music and passing my knowledge on to others. I have played many different instruments in many different kinds of bands. It all one major thing in common, it was FUN! If you are not having fun while learning an instrument you won't want to learn. Lessons can be fun AND educational at the same time. I have had many parents tell me I'm one of the best teachers they have ever seen. (A couple of them were public school teachers themselves). I truly want my students to succeed and I will do everything in my power to help them accomplish that!

Jerry is a wonderful instructor. I wasn’t sure how online lessons would go but they have been seamless and fun and my son is making progress with the bugle. I would highly recommend this format and this teacher. The convenience and quality of instruction are excellent. We are signing up for more lessons and may move on to another instrument once my son feels confident on the bugle.

Cecilia es simplemente una Maestra! Es innato y muy natural en ella. Soy contrabajista y no he necesitado cambiar mi técnica, ella me ha escuchado y me ayudó a repotenciar mi performancia con conceptos muy simples. Sus ideas son tan claras que hizo sonar mi contrabajo como si fuera un profesional. Necesitamos maestros como ella.
Cecilia is simply a Master! She has a natural talent. I am a DoubleBass player and I didn't need to change my technique, she just listened my playing and helped me to 'repower' my performance. Her ideas are so clear that she made my bass sounds like a professional player. We need masters like her."

"I have been taking piano/music lessons from Ryan for 8 months now. It has been a great journey with him. As a 40yo student, I always have my ways of learning music (or anything), and Ryan truly customized every lesson to my likings. And these changes based on what was going on in my life at the moment of the lessons, be that a celebration, a loss, a growth and such. So the lessons with him have been healing process to me like a therapy. Now I understand why there is such thing as music therapy. I started lessons with him to play piano, but he had been showering me with lots of music theory which I have been always curious about. It is like learning a whole new language and it opened up my eyes to a world of music. Ryan is kind, friendly and flexible. An hour lesson with him give me happy and positive energy for a week. Why wouldn’t musical conversations give anyone such pleasure? I am committed to continuing my musical journey with Ryan!"

"I have worked with Ms. Christine for over six years, and she has been an invaluable member of our school. Christine is an excellent music teacher. She is aware of a variety of approaches to teaching music, and is constantly broadening her musical talents. She has worked to create interdisciplinary experiences as well, by integrating song, instrumentals, and dance with literature, through performances for the school.

She enjoys children and brings wonderful excitement to their music experience. She creates relevant lesson plans and incorporates movement and other modalities into her music lessons. If you walk into a music lesson, students are moving and making music! They are engaged!

I highly recommend Ms. Christine."

"Buzz is an excellent teacher and brings real world music experience into his instruction. As a touring musician, producer, song writer, and arranger, Buzz has an understanding of practical application. When I perform, I am always looking for ways to play smarter, and Buzz always helps with that. Buzz will break down music theory in a way that makes sense and that I can apply to my own playing on gigs and in rehearsal sessions. Buzz is a tremendous teacher for beginners (I have watched him give lessons to young students and he is excellent) , but if you are an experienced player and are just looking to get better, working with Buzz will get you there. I promise you'll play better after one lesson."
