I have a Bachelor's degree in Music & Worship and a Masters in Teaching, and I'm a certified K-12 music teacher. I've taught individual music lessons for 7 years. I'm also a worship leader at a church and a songwriter/arranger for Red Tie Music. Music is my passion, and I'd love the opportunity to share it with you and your family.

Pays attention to detail, clear teaching and instructions, and finds alternative solutions and/or explanations to reinforce learning.
Dillon
Very clear explanations, and I left the first lesson with good goals and a handful of things to practice. Having the lesson online worked out very well and didn't take away from the experience or efficient use of time at all.
Levi C.
I am an adult beginner in my 30's and was a little nervous about starting my lessons. However, I have to say, great lesson! He really took the time to listen to what I wanted to work on and make recommendations. Then he was able to quickly spot areas for improvement and give corrections that were very relatable and easy to understand. I can't wait to keep working with Daniel.

Mr. Aragon has continually shown me his love for music through his teaching. As an instructor, he paid close attention to my technique when playing the piano, guitar, or flute, and helped me improve it. Through the years, he has strongly influenced my love for music, and I continue to use what he has taught me when playing instruments and music outside the classroom. Overall, Mr. Aragon is a great, professional instructor who is passionate about teaching students music through music theory and his love of rock n roll and classical music.

I went for my first lesson this morning & John was excellent! Very professional & informative. I look forward to more upcoming lessons in the following weeks!!!

Mr.Aragon was my son’s grade school music teacher for 8 yrs. He is very patient and encouraging, and my son really enjoyed it when Mr.Aragon would teach the class music from the 50’s, 60’s, and 70’s. Now my son appreciates Motown, Michael Jackson, the Beatles, and Billy Joel as much as he does current alternative music, and he is 13!

I started taking lessons with Jacqueline after having bought a violin and done some practicing on my own for a few months. She was quickly able to formulate lesson plans for me based on my background and experience. She has also been very good about correcting my technique and pushing me to challenge myself, and is always helpful in answering my many questions. Overall she is a very knowledgeable, professional, down-to-earth and friendly instructor.
Maria
My 11 year old daughter has studied with Jacqueline for 1.5 years and is really enjoying the process. Jacqueline is a kind and warm teacher which is very encouraging. My daughter wants to practice and improve in order to impress her sweet teacher. We are very happy with lessons with Jacqueline. She even teaches Disney music... not just the classics. She will look for whatever my daughter is interested in playing and then plays with her. I highly recommend her.
Adam
Me and J worked together for three years before I went to college and I’m glad she asked me for this review. J is really patient and fun to work with. I mostly wanted to learn movie music and she was cool with that. Good lessons, chill teacher.

Daniel was friendly, approachable, and made me very comfortable. He was positive and encouraging and used every minute of the lesson to the max...I learned SO MUCH in just one lesson. You can tell he really wants to you to succeed. I can't wait to see where we will go!

My husband and I were extremely pleased with the progress our son Thomas made with Dan. Thomas started playing last year and was progressing faster than the rest of his third grade class which is why we were looking for a private teacher to help him along. Before taking lessons with Dan I had a hard time getting Thomas to practice. Thomas has begun practicing all on his own because he has been genuinely inspired. Dan is a true professional who always on time and in a good mood to teach. He was so patient with Thomas and developed practice techniques unique to Thomas's situation. Dan is more than just a violin teacher, he is dedicated to inspiring each student to love music. Thanks Dan!!!

I have been playing since age 4 and teaching privately for 13 years.

A one hour lesson includes 10 minutes scales, 15 minutes etude or exercises and 35 minutes piece. I teach sizuki method up to book 6 or whenever the student wants to switch over to concertos

I recommend sitt scale book and kaiser etudes.
I like to have my student write his/her own exercises until really comfortable reading music

"Erin is a great violin teacher for my son!

At first, I was skeptical if my son could actually learn violin on skype. Erin proved that it can work very well. She helped my son to improve the techniques and was strict about his posture (much needed!). Erin was very encouraging and patient with my son. She always wrote the post-lesson notes, which was super helpful to keep my son focused on the areas for practice.

When my son decided that he wasn't interested in violin any more, Erin encouraged him, and offered good advice for me too. I really appreciate Erin's professionalism and positive attitude!"

"Aleksandre is an outstanding teacher! Truly one of the best. My son began taking lessons with Aleksandre a little more than a year ago. Aleksandre has a way of teaching that completely engages and excites my son while ensuring that he is learning how to read music and play with rhythm and feeling. When we had to go remote, Aleksandre did not miss a beat. My son has grown to love the violin so much that we increased our lessons to twice a week. I would highly recommend Aleksandre as a professional, thoughtful and extraordinary teacher of the violin."
