Sam Y.
What a great teacher! He has several decades of experience in playing and teaching and it shows. He plays effortlessly and is very patient. He would be the ideal teacher for someone who is either new or already experienced with the guitar. Also, I feel like he can play most any song (and coming from a 70s/80s rock/metal fan, it's great). If you're on the fence about learning or continuing with lessons, give him a shot. You won't be disappointed!

I’ve really enjoyed my lessons with Bill. Learned a ton from him so far and appreciate his patient, calm manner

My ukulele students not only learn to play chords, they also learn to read music and tabs. They learn music theory as it applies to their playing so that they know why they are doing a certain thing not just how to do it. They will have hours of enjoyment playing songs within their skill level so that they can advance quickly.

About Suzann

My educational background consists of both university and music conservatory. As a musician, I have sung and played my various instruments since a very young child. Music is meant to be shared and I have over 30 years of teaching and performance experience. As a writer, I have been a published

My gifted son needs challenging and stimulating activities to help him balance all of his feelings. I was extremely hesitant with signing him up because he is only 4. However he instantly connected with Landon and said he has a fantastic time. I absolutely love how Landon has a gift to communicate music without watering down terminology but slowly speaking so that children can understand. He truly has a gift. We look forward to the next one.
Lorraine S.
When the student is ready the teacher will appear and am I glad! This is working out great. Landon is knowledgeable, patient, and talented. Just what I need to expand my musical endeavors.
Marlee M.
My Daughter had her 1st lesson and loved it! Landon was kind patient with just enough silliness for my 6yr old to feel completely comfortable. I was shocked and excited to hear her actually play. When we left she said she couldn’t wait to go back and asked if Landon could be her teacher forever.

So far so good. Very patient as mistakes after mistake was made. Corrected quite a few mistakes I was making so that my habits would be good habits from the start. Let me talk to myself as I messed up and complimented me when I was on the right track.

Great lesson! Thanks!
Robert C.
complete novice; adult student. First lesson very relaxed. Excellent blend through-out lesson of questions and information my goals and background as well as instructor's goals for me and his background. First "technical" part of lesson was manageable and care taken by Lyle to make sure I understood what was being presented. I left the first lesson feeling this would be a good fit between instructor and student

Works to play what I'm interested and what I really want to play. I thought going to learn an instrument at 27 would be rough but it has been fun and enjoyable."

"Fantastic teacher!

When I came to Francesca I had zero musical background. I wanted to learn to play the quitar so I could sing to my first grandchildren ( twin girls) coming in February. By my forth lesson I was playing 'Yellow Submarine ' by the Beatles! Francesca truly has a gift for teaching music. She loves it and loves sharing her knowledge. I leave my lesson with a smile every week."

"Claire has been a delight as a teacher and CEO (Chief Enthusiasm Officer). I started from basically no musical training in many years and even a little apprehensive at the beginning. Claire teaches with such positivity that I did not feel self conscious or discouraged at any point. I felt very good about the progress from day one and was able to build on that. Claire has a deep technical understanding of music, but it's really her style and empathy that makes her effective, in my opinion. I have a ways to go, but I now have a base to improve from. I am no longer apprehensive in the least and look forward to each lesson. I highly recommend her as a teacher."
