In a fun and engaging atmosphere we will develop the tools of musicality. I'm as comfortable with an absolute beginner as an advanced student. I've been a professional drummer and keyboardist for 17 years. The last 13 of these have been touring with Ringling Brothers & Barnum and Bailey Circus.

Aaron is so nice and very good at how to take the interests of kids. We appreciate to have him as our son's piano teacher.

Aaron has been great for my son (who's 8 and just starting). He's fun, super patient and keeps my son's attention well throughout the lesson. He has paced the lessons well so far. We're very happy and totally recommend Aaron.

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!

Classical is my specialty. I've taught for almost 15 years and can really help you reach your goals and become a better musician.

KIDS:
I also specialize in teaching kids classical guitar. Classical for your kids is the best way to get them learning real music and theory, developing the best possible technique and good habits, and literally changing their brain chemistry for the better! The foundations they establish with classical leads them to better playing of ANY style even if they don't stick with classical. I am contracted out and travel the nation teaching kids classical guitar and teaching teachers how to teach it, so I feel fully confident you're in the best hands you could be in if your child takes lessons with me.

ADULTS:
If you're just starting out, I will help you build a technical foundation first, playing through a "boot camp" of easy pieces to build sight reading and technical skills. When you're done with that you're ready to tackle some really cool ...

Jaxon is great! Always incredibly patient with my flamenco development. He also gives plenty of material for you to work on at home, so you’re never not sure what you have to work on. Overall, if you want to improve quickly and learn the right way, you can’t go wrong with Jaxon.
April M.
Jaxon is prepared, attentive, kind and encouraging. He communicates very clearly. He made me feel comfortable enough to take risks. His playing is simply beautiful, but he also genuinely enjoys teaching. As a follow up to my lesson he sent me detailed notes on what we covered and how to practice it. I'm excited to continue working with him!

Allen is an EXCELLENT teacher!! Allen knows how to explain music theory in a very practical way, has a lot of patience, and motivated me to keep going after my dream of playing the piano

Great teacher
Rigel
Allen was an amazing Piano teacher. Its been over a year since I have taken lessons with him but the knowledge, technique, and material he taught me I still take with me to this day. Anyone can simply memorize how to play a song but he teaches you the intuition you need to truly play Piano. Music is not something that was easy for me to get, but I can personally say after taking lessons with him I understand Piano and what music really is a lot more than what I did before. He has his recommended way of learning and curriculum, but he really does align his teaching process based on the way the student learns. He is very patient. Sometimes it would take a while for me to catch on to something, but he was always very patient and encouraging which was very helpful for me overcoming challenges. Overall, a great teacher that really understands his students.

"In April of this year, I retained Michael to instruct my 13 year old daughter, Jennifer, in guitar lessons. I was quite impressed with Mr. Michael right from the beginning.

Since I knew nothing about guitars, I had no idea what type of guitar to purchase for Jennifer. Mr. Christian offered on his own time to go with us to help in the purchase of the guitar. He kept in mind what we could afford and the quality of the guitars, it was very reassuring to know that he was looking out for our welfare and to be able trust him.

I am very impressed with the progress Jennifer has made in playing the guitar. She looked forward to her lessons with Mike. She looked forward to her lessons with Mike. He made the lessons interesting and "fun". Mike not only taught her to play the guitar but also how to read music and understand it.

Mike is a very kind, moral, talented young man and I recommend him highly. We are sorry to see him leave, however, our loss is your gain."
