I've really been enjoying lessons and have been getting a lot out of them! Flexibility with scheduling concerns has also been well appreciated!
Baileigh B.
My daughter was so nervous for her first lesson and Phillip was amazing. She is 14 and said, "He didn't make me feel bad that I am not as good as I should be and so that makes me feel like maybe i can play better."
So grateful Phillip - she is anxious to spend the summer learning from you - we appreciate your approach and as he said ability to "put her at ease" so she can feel comfortable to learn. Awesome first lesson.

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.

Technically she knows her stuff, interpersonally she is fabulous and as a beginning singer I am thrilled with these lessons.
Tyler M.
Love her teaching, it's so helpful.
Ashley
I am not one to take the time to write a review, but my experience must be shared and voiced. I met Professor Candid in early September. Hesitant to start, she immediately provided me with the safest space to be myself, to express my doubts, and to expand on the craft of music with her guidance. She exceeded my expectations time and time again, giving me endless tips, daily practice routines that not only incorporated vocals but mind, body and soul altogether. She did not hesitate to keep me in mind throughout the week, sending me clips of artists, helping me envision my own personal voice. She is always attentive, extremely patient, and has such grace when communicating with you about everything. I have been a music student for most of my life, have been with a handful of music teachers and she is 1 out of 2 teachers that have fully created a 100% non-judgmental environment for me to grow and learn. She always has a great listening ear and always keeps in mind what your personal goals and intentions are, guiding you with any small or huge dream you have your mind set for. If you’re looking for a professor that will not give up on you, will constantly be available to help you throughout the week, someone that shares her joy, teaches you not only her limitless knowledge on music but her wisdom that will forever leave you with such joy and peace every time you end your class session with her, then do not doubt to take your lessons with her! She is the best out here! Forever giving amazing quality lessons! You won’t regret it, I promise you!

"Learn the rules like a pro, then break them as an artist" - Pablo Picasso

As a music producer, mix engineer and artist, I understand the need for proficiency as well as the artistry. My approach to teaching is customized to each individual as we are not all the same. I pay close attention to how each person learns and work with what the student can excel in. When needed we will do drills or work on theory or break down your technique to overcome any obstacles. With my industry expertise, I can help you become a proficient musician and help develop your style and artistry.

I look forward to working with you!

About David

I am a multi-instrumentalist, music producer, and mix engineer who works with artists at varying levels developing their skills, creativity, and music. Over the course of nearly 2 decades playing in bands and working in music production, I know the skillset and mindset necessary to perform at a pro

great experience for my daughter. David was very knowledgeable and supportive! Highly recommend
Kimberly
I'm re-learning the piano with David and he has changed my relationship to music for the better. After only a few lessons with David I've gotten a greater understanding of music theory than I had in my few years of early piano training. He is patient and flexible with his style of teaching. If it's taking me awhile to understand a concept he's good at explaining it more clearly. I definitely recommend him for learning the piano!
Christian J.
David is a highly skilled multi-instrumentalist and producer. I was introduced when he recorded an EP for my band and since then, we've spent many an evening talking about performing, recording, teaching and making music. He is kind, patient and extremely knowledgable about his craft. I always learn something new, interesting and immediately applicable to my playing when I work with him. I've had the privilege of sharing the stage with some of his students and they have always been exceptionally professional and prepared. I highly recommend David for lessons in whatever discipline you request - the crossover knowledge from all of his experiences will be invaluable to you.

"Awesome teacher!

Edwin is a great teacher. He was very patient and encouraging from the start. He has a great knowledge of different styles of music and from day one i was already learning some of my favorite songs that before i could only dream of playing. He breaks down the structure of the song very well so that i can understand what im playing which made the learning stress-free. Would highly recommend to all ages and experience!"

"Lana is an amazing piano teacher! She started teaching our kids when they were very young until they graduated from eighth grade. They are in high school now and no longer take lessons, but they still sit down at the piano to play their repertoire and some new songs. Lana is a professional; she was always prompt for lessons and was very flexible as the kids became busier with school activities and sports. This was important because there never was a point where my kids would have to choose between sports and piano. We loved Lana's patience with the kids, her positive attitude and passion for music and are most grateful for all the years she graced our home to teach our kids a love for piano and music. Lana pushed the kids to perform at higher levels each year. It's still fun to see people's jaws drop when my hockey-playing son sits down at a piano and plays an amazingly difficult piece. Thank you, Lana!"
