Elizabeth is very kind and a great teacher. She explains nicely and at a level the student understands. She gives challenging 'homework', but not unrealistic. Highly recommended!!!

Elizabeth is an amazing teacher! She was/is able to identify my learning style and meet me where I am musically. She keeps me challenged but successful in my endeavor. Elizabeth is VERY patient and kind and encouraging. I was hesitant about fulfilling my dream of playing the harp (as an adult learner), but am very excited about the progress I am making thanks to her. Elizabeth makes me believe in myself and my ability to learn to play and enjoy the harp!

Jesse W. Altamonte Springs, FL

About Jesse

Hi, My name is Jesse. I discovered my passion in music when I was 15 and saw another student playing guitar in school. Ever since I received my first guitar at age 16, I was hooked. Not a day went by that I didn't pick up the instrument and pour my energy and soul into my playing. I specialize in teaching students how to unleash their creativity while also following a disciplined learning method. Music is meant to be fun, creative, and expressive, and I help students find this passion. After discovering their passion, practice and honing their skills will lead to more professional ventures and possibly a career! Specialties: Guitar, Leads, Rhythms, Fingerpicking, Solos, Improvisation, Recording, Songwriting. I make sure my students have a wonderful time and are excited to want to

Liam taught guitar lessons to one of my daughters for a couple of years, and I personally played with him for several years in our church's praise team. He's both a gifted teacher and a talented musician, and his passion is clear for both. What's perhaps most impressive is the ease and grace he displays when either teaching or playing; he makes it all look and feel easy. Equally impressive is the breadth of his musical knowledge and styles. He's equally versed with all types of music, from classical to jazz to some of the more contemporary artists like Mandisa.

Liam was one of my many guitar instructors. But it was always apparent to me that Liam stands out. Liam and I did lessons for over a year in New Hampshire when I was about 14. His knowledge and understanding of music never ceased to blow my mind. When I was a young guitarist, Liam's patience gave me a great environment to learn and grow. Later, we connected for a few more lessons before I went to college at age 17, and Liam really helped me when I was at a different stage in my ability. His versatility is amazing. Usually, versatility comes at the price of depth, but that is not so, with Liam. He cares about music, and he cares about teaching, and has the talent and knowledge to pass that on. Outstanding teacher.

Rosely is a fantastic piano teacher. Both my boys (age 13 and age 9) took lessons and they have a better understanding and appreciation of music due to her guidance and teaching. She works well with children of all ages and skill levels, and she takes the time to explain and help the students understand the music.
