Students of all ages in a personal relaxed atmosphere.
Customized to each student. If the student has not previously taken lessons I use Piano Adventures as the basic course guide. I have found it the most productive and enjoyable for my students. I uses a minimum of the Lesson and Theory book for my younger students with either the basic course or Accelerated course depending on their age and maturity. Adults begin with the All In one adult book. I add the other books that accompany each level based on the particular students needs and interests. I believe that a good grounding in Theory is essential as a student who becomes proficient in sight reading, no matter how well he/she plays by ear, will find that the doors for lifetime musical fulfillment with be much wider. However, with a student who has already had some lessons I will be happy to continue with any method that the student is currently using.
I also believe in supplementing the Piano course with the student's favorite ...

Kathy came to my home for my lesson. She has a very pleasant personality and it is very easy to follow her instructions. She kept the pace up, yet did not overload me. It's been a number of years since I have played and she did an excellent job on getting me back on the keys. I am looking forward to our next lesson.

Traditional music education is not for everyone! As somebody who learned the fundamentals of the drum kit through unorthodox methods, I aim to be a source of guidance and advocacy for self-discipline in understanding the musical world. With over a decade of experience under my belt, I offer insight on technique, feel, performance, recording, and instrument maintenance; all of which are important skills in the life of the modern gigging musician. While I may not be able to work you through the fundamentals of jazz, I can provide fun and valuable insight to being the best drummer you can be, on and off stage.

About Max

I was apprehensive about guitar lessons in general, but Nathan has changed my mind as a tutor. I am well pleased with how keen he is to tailoring lessons to one's goals. He is clear and precise in his teaching, and is also fun. I highly recommend him to whoever is considering it. I have learned so much in a couple lessons and always leave looking forward excitedly to the next one. Good man.

Kelly is a very friendly, skillful and patient teacher. I was very nervous to take my first flute lesson as an adult. However Kelly being a professional, she eased any nervousness that I had and gave me the confidence that I needed. I have learned so much and I cannot recommend her enough! I love playing the flute thanks to Kelly. She is the best!

She whole-heartedly is passionate about excelling in her own life which translates to high expectations for her students while maintaining a light-hearted learning environment, mirrored by her optimistic personality.

Patient, encouraging accommodating ,I highly recommend Shelia. As a former preparer of public school teachers I observed in Shelia the qualities of an excellent teacher.

Sheila is an outstanding teacher. She is patient, and gives amazing feedback. I have never played an instrument before but she made it so easy to learn the basics step by step. I will continue to take lessons from her, and encourage anyone who is interested in learning the accordion to reach out to her.

"Nairobi has been a great instructor. He does not use the "one size fits all approach", but rather will customize the instruction to what you want. Accordingly, students will remain interested and get more out of it when the curriculum is of interest to them. I wanted to learn how to play the guitar, but wasn't interested in learning to read music. Nairobi also let's you choose what type and what specific songs you'd like to learn. Learning to play your favorite rock, pop or blues song versus Mary Had a Little Lamb- guess which one keeps you more motivated and interested in learning how to play? Also, being able to have the lesson in the privacy of your own home is great. He makes learning to play the guitar fun. If you put the work in you'll be playing in no time."

"Jonathan is a great teacher! His method focuses a lot on body awareness--from the core torso muscles used for breath support, all the way to the muscles in the face where resonance occurs.

Jonathan is very intuitive about my individual needs, helping me find my voice through specific corrections, rather than just providing general instruction. He is also a warm and welcoming host and quick to offer a cup of hot tea!

Highly recommend, especially for students looking for greater body awareness while singing and hoping to get more out of their breath support."

"This is my first time taking voice lessons, so, as an adult, I was hesitant. Benjamin and I spoke briefly before my first lesson, and he assured me that my lack of experience was not a problem. I didn't necessarily believe him..

I've made HUGE improvements over the past few months. Through his instruction, I've unlocked so much more of my voice than when I first started singing with him. I'm shy and laugh a lot, so it was difficult for me to get comfortable with a few of the exercises. While taking the singing, breathing and improving my voice oh so seriously, we laugh and have fun which makes me feel a lot more comfortable.

I would recommend Benjamin to anyone looking to learn to do anything as he is a great teacher. I already do recommend him to my friends for singing lessons."
