Brent has been teaching my daughter drum for about 1 year now and it has been great!

I highly recommend him as a music teacher.

My 7 year old loves music and has shown an affinity towards playing the drums! Brent has been an awesome teacher and has so much patience working with easily distracted kids. He is always encouraging my son and show him both the fun side and the more technical side of playing the drums. We look forward to continuing our lessons with Mr. Brent, and I highly recommend him to anyone looking to learn how to play the drums

Brent has created a wonderful learning environment for both of my kids. Although they are at very different stages of learning, Brent has been able to meet them individually where they are in their processes. Brent’s approach is calm, engaging and fun. Both kids look forward to learning more each week.

Once we learn how to read, nothing can stop us from playing! After that it all depends on what you want to do with your guitar. Classical guitar is a gate to all music genres and music theory will definitely bring your level higher + it gives you confidence.

He knows how to engage his students of all ages so they enjoy the learning process. Over the years, Russell has incorporated acoustic guitar, music theory, music composition, and much more in his lessons. He is very passionate about teaching all components of music so his students develop their skills and have a deeper understanding of how music is made.

"A year ago, after a long 40 year or so break, I returned to my violin.
My professional career has nothing to do with music. Learning violin again is a hard work. The physical challenge is there, the ability rapidly to develop muscle tone and memory “sadly just isn’t there anymore.” My right arm is as stiff as a 2x4 stud and left fingers slip. So, lighting dashes over strings will take longer – much longer - to perfect.

But, Tigran reminded me that he has not found any shortcuts and he has been looking for a long time. I resumed very basic finger exercises and routine scales. And the results were very slow but the reward was there.

Tigran is very structured and systematically approaching how to improve the intonation and tonal quality. So, I am happy to leave it up to him to take the lead."

She is very organized, understanding, easy to talk to, and will have a plan tailored for your personal goals. She is very knowledgeable in many different aspects of music. I loved how quickly I saw progress vocally with Ms. Christine. However, what I appreciated most was her genuine interest in my success. I could always give her a call when I needed some advice or had a question about my music. I can tell she does this because she truly loves helping her students in whatever way she can. Every week I look forward to my lessons with her and will definitely continue with them!"

A Brief History of A Cappella

Over the past few years, a cappella has become a popular genre and trend. But what exactly is it? The term a cappella is an Italian term that means "in the manner of the church" or "in the manner of the chapel," referring to the type of music that is sung without the use of musical instruments. History tells us that a cappella music got its beginning in a religious setting, but the genre continues to grow and change as shows like Glee and movies like Pitch Perfect move the style into popular c …
