"Trevor is a skilled guitarist, well-versed in music theory, and extremely patient when teaching lessons. As somebody who’s never taken music lessons before, I was afraid he’d have me playing scales and arpeggios for the first few months. Not the case! Trevor has an answer for every question that crosses my mind and always structures our lessons around whatever excites me most. A lot of our lessons spill over onto his keyboard, where he’s very adept at explaining theory concepts. I’ve been taking lessons for with Trevor for 5 months and would recommend him to anyone!"

"Joao is a patient and warm teacher who adapts his approach based on the student. When he began with my daughter, she didn't know how to hold a guitar and was adamantly opposed to the idea of a public recital. Joao built up her skills and her confidence by taking a real interest in her as a person. Lessons were fun, and also productive, and she was playing guitar and singing at large recitals in no time.

Joao also taught my son to play the piano. By teaching the melodies to familiar songs and keeping the lessons fun, my son also also discovered a love of musicianship thanks to Joao. Joao is multi-talented as a musician and gifted as a teacher, and we were lucky to have him teach our children for years."
