I've been studying trumpet for 15 years, and I'm eager to work with students of all ages. I will give students a firm foundation in trumpet fundamentals, while also focusing on what the student would like to learn. I specialize in jazz and contemporary music, though I am also trained in classical music.

About Dustin

It is important to have teacher, student, and parents work together to see the accomplishments happen in the future. I make the lessons meaningful, so that my student can retain the information and practice effectively at home. My ultimate goal is to have my student think critically and listen carefully, so that they can become their own teacher.

About Richard

I've been teaching acoustic guitar for 7 years (since I was a teen myself!). Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to read and play from basic tabs, and as time goes on we can work on songs you pick yourself. I generally don't teach guitar students to read sheet music unless they ask; this is because in the "real world" of playing musicians, guitarists rarely use actual sheet music except in a classical setting. I specialize in beginner and intermediate acoustic, pop, country and fingerpicking style. Students should have and bring their own guitar. I will work with students ages 6+, but I recommend waiting until close to age 10 for guitar, as it requires some hand size/strength to reach many chord shapes. Ukulele is a fun option for smaller kids 6+ and I teach that too!

About Maya

- I am classically trained in piano and music theory (attended college for both from the age of 15) and have a strong emphasis on music theory and good technique in my lessons, but I also understand the importance of ear training. I practice with and encourage each student in developing relative pi

Instruction also includes how to play correctly so as not to develop negative playing habits. In the case that you have developed negative playing habits, how to correct them.

Emphasis is also placed on proper warm up techniques, stretching exercises, holding the sticks correctly, posture, plus drum kit "throne" seat placement, and correct stance, if playing concert snare or percussion. Independence is also developed through simple easy to grasp exercises. In addition, drum exercises are individually tailored to the particular needs of each student.

Chuck has also developed a special ear training method utilizing CD and MP3 technology. This method reduces the amount of time it normally takes to develop good listening skills. These listening skills decrease the time that it takes to learn new songs, and learn how to interact with other musicians.

About Chuck

Chuck is a very talented and experienced teacher, he makes the classes relax , entretained and fun. He is very insightful and detects my kid strength and weakness. I have seen my kid improving in his drum skill that eventually would take him to the next level.

Chuck is a fantastic teacher! He is really patient but also pushes me to go beyond what I think I can do. He is very systematic and fundamental, which has given me a great foundation in my rhythm skills.

"I've taken her class for over a few years now and I can't even describe how much I have grown because of her. I first was very mousy and quiet but I am now achieving and wanting to tackle songs I never thought I could because of her. I recommend her to everyone I know. In all seriousness people around me have noticed a huge change and there may be days where I don't notice it until she asks if I caught that I was able to hit it."

His skill has progressed so much, sometimes his interest level goes up and down but Gabe always knows how to make it fun again with new songs to learn and then he wants to play and practice all day. He also loves performing in Gabe’s recitals and the talent show at school. Gabe is so talented and patient, we feel so lucky our friend referred us to him!"

He is always positive and provides very constructive feedback to my 11 year old son to help him improve his playing. We are very pleased! (and my son is very comfortable with his teaching style... Love his tips and suggestions and his help with improving on songs he is playing for school.)"

"I cannot speak highly enough about Kit! For my wedding, I wanted to surprise Ashleigh by singing a particular song. Not only had I never had singing lessons, but I also had zero confidence in my voice that I could pull this off. Kit is SO PATIENT! She took the time to tailor my lessons to help me learn the song, and weekly tips. She also went out of her way to work with my schedule, since my lessons had to be a secret since it was for a surprise.
When the night of our wedding came along, Kit's patience and teaching paid off- I was confident and comfortable, which made the experience memorable and fun!! It was a part of our wedding we will both always cherish. Thank you very much Kit!!!"
