Chris was very flexible with my sons schedule. As an active kid involved in school and church activities, the online lessons with Chris were perfect. Through the year, my son advanced in his playing ability. We were excited to hear his piece at the state competition, but sadly the virus disrupted that. However, he learned much from Chris over the past several months. We appreciated the time and effort!

My son is a high school senior taking lessons from Dr. Heldt. The lesson went very well. My son is very happy to have such a kind and experienced teacher. So glad we found him!

Jahcee is the best!
Alexanderia
Jahcee is AMAZING!! She is patient, perceptive and aware of each of her students gifting independently and in a group. Jahcee has a way of making you feel warm, welcomed and wanted! Her down to earth and humorous character allows you to easily feel comfortable and confident to release your gift, talent and abilities.
Jahcee gives practical instruction to her students and caters to each students learning style. She meets you where you are and assists you in elevating yourself to where your gift requires you to be! I absolutely LOVE her!
Jahcee does give homework and tests you during the next sessions which speaks to her requirement of accountability from each student.
Jahcee will gently push you beyond your comfort zone and out of the proverbial box, however, she will only go as far as you allow her.
I cannot express enough how amazing she is as a person which filters through to her professional artistic craft!
If you want a caring and gentle yet down to earth and structured trainer, do not hesitate to reach out to Jahcee! You will be blown away by the experience and love that she expels naturally! It is truly an honor to be trained by such an Amazing and Experienced Woman!

Jaden has been such a great teacher for our son. He’s super patient and takes my sons desires into consideration. If my son says he wants to learn a specific thing then Jaden has been super obliging. He even helped show us how to clean the trumpet in the tub one day. He was able to work out coming to our home to teach and has been flexible when our schedules change.
Jamie
Jaden is a great teacher! He’s very talented and has a great way connecting with his students. He has a lot of enthusiasm about playing the trumpet that is contagious to his students.
Kristen
We love having Jaden as our son's teacher. His style of teaching and his personality work perfectly with what our son needs from a teacher.

"I've already written a review for Candida, but that one was rather rushed and I think it doesn't do her justice. She is an incredible teacher and has such a bright personality. She works methodically on the technique and explains all the physical workings of the voice and how it's connected to the whole body, there's a lot of foundational work which I think is very important. But at the same time she lets you choose the songs to work on; and I think learning to properly sing things you really enjoy is the greatest motivation. She's discovered a voice in me that I never knew I had. Today before our lesson I was tired and feeling a bit lost - everyone has those days I think. 45 minutes later, I'm feeling fresh and inspired."
