I only had Marc for a couple months (unfortunately had to move), but he is a phenomenal teacher and I recommend to anyone. He's very easy to communicate with and strikes a great balance between the technical learning you need with having fun.
Fred Chin
First lesson. Marc was great
Chris
I only got to take lessons from Marc for a couple of months in the summer of 2016 (I had to move away for work), but he is hands down the best music teacher I've ever encountered. It's a year and a half later and I'm still benefitting from his tutelage. From beginner to advanced, you've found the right guy for the job.

Tom is an excellent teacher. He works great with my daughter. He is very talented and understands music. I highly recommend Tom.

Tom is a super nice guy with a great positive attitude and teaching style to match. He has lots of experience both playing and instructing. Two thumbs up!
Anya
Tom was absolutely fantastic. He seemed to be genuinely interested in my progress and just as excited as I was about me picking up the piano again - over 20 years since I’d last had lessons - which was an excellent motivator. I may have gone home and practices for a few hours. I look forward to continuing my lessons with him.

Bill is a great teacher. He is able to teach whatever songs or style of music you are looking for. He is extremely helpful and makes the lessons really fun and enjoyable. He is very accommodating and ensures you are understanding what he taught. Overall, I really enjoyed my lessons and I highly recommend him.
Joel R.
Bill is a delight to work with, he is patient and thoughtful. I am very pleased and fortuned to have found him as my teacher.
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!

"Priscilla has worked with my daughter over several weeks of beginner guitar lessons. These were in our home. She was always on time. When a cancellation was necessary due to weather, she reached out ahead of time to let us know.

As a teacher, she is wonderful with kids. My daughter (7 years old) has enjoyed every minute of every lesson, coming away very happy after each lesson. Priscilla is very enthusiastic, arrives with a very uplifting attitude for every lesson, knows how to talk to kids, knows how to give them positive reinforcement and motivate them. She left helpful homework notes after each lesson. I highly recommend her."

8-Year-Old Girl is Gnarliest Guitar Shredder Ever

I'm willing to bet that "playing like a girl" will stop being an insult within this little lady's lifetime! At just 8 years old, Lisa-X is able to play rapid fire metal solos that will melt your face off and blow your mind. She's smaller than her guitar, but she sure knows how to make it sound big and mighty. Plus, the sweet grin she gives the camera as she's bending a note around 1:46? Priceless!
