This past year, I have been brought back to piano music through Randy's excellent teaching. His approach is one of a kind. He helped this student to hear the music within me, the sounds around me and to play what I hear. He is truly amazing, encouraging, supportive and highly skilled, a true professional. I am always happy to recommend him to anyone who is seeking the very best instruction, by the very best instructor.

I had always wanted to learn how to play the piano. I wanted an instructor who was fun, loved playing and teaching, and patient. Randy is all of those things and more. I have learned so much about music and the piano in the four months I’ve been working with him. He makes me feel confident that I can learn to play almost anything! All I can say is I picked the right guy. I’m looking forward to many more lessons and with his help reaching some of the many musical goals I have set for myself.

I can't say enough about how wonderful Ruben is! My son took weekly guitar lesson's with him for 8 1/2 years, and it was truly the best experience ever. Ruben's an incredible guitar player and passes on his great knowledge at every level. He's very personable, patient, and not only gets to know his student's strengths but where they need to work to help them grow as a musician. Ruben is an extraordinary teacher, and also became a great mentor and friend. We're so Appreciative and Thankful for him!

I absolutely love Cyndi!! She is an unparalleled expert. I notice my voice really improving each week because of the exercises she gives me to practice. She knows exactly what exercises to give your voice at the correct moment--sometimes she even tailors an exercise or creates an exercise just to fit your voice! Not only is she incredibly knowledgeable, but she also is extremely encouraging and gives me confidence. :)

It's also important to have an organized instructor--my last singing instructor never remembered where I was at or what we had done in the previous week's lesson. Cyndi takes advantage of all the time in the lesson and has a notebook organized by her student's names to record what we've worked on and the exercises she will give me for the next lesson! I'm really blown away by all the care Cyndi puts into each lesson. She also responds very quickly to texts and emails--when I registered for my first lesson I was a little nervous. But just a few minutes after I registered, I got a phone call from Cyndi asking questions about my experience and knowledge and connecting with me.

I can't say enough good things about Cyndi--every lesson has been great and I highly recommend you take lessons with her!! :)

I was impressed after one lesson - clear, concise explanations, attention to how I learn (visual, memorization, or through physical learning) so that lessons and instructions could be tailored to my learning style. Encouraging, energetic and profesional. I couldn't be more excited to have her as a teacher and suddenly this all seems a lot less anxiety-inducing and far more enjoyable. Totally banished the bad memories of grade-school music classes, which put me off learning an instrument for many decades.

Kristilyn was my first bassoon instructor and has continued to be my favorite! She took me from being a mediocre, subpar high school bassoon player to a proficient bassoon player in under a year! She helped me audition and qualify for my high school regional honor band, as well as making me want to continue playing bassoon in college. I owe much of my improvement and love of the bassoon to Kristilyn. :)
