First lesson. Mark really dialed in my skill level and completely exceeded my expectations in terms of material, lesson plan, genre etc. Even got to play one of his ridiculously sweet tele's.

Learn your favorite tunes! Single notes, bends, fun riffs and melodies. My love of the blues and Stevie Wonder is what drew me to the harmonica, and I really enjoy sharing that.

In the first several music lessons we establish overall music fundamentals. Good ears (notes), and good time feel (rhythm). We also get the basics of harmonica playing technique, and a song or two. After that, we expand into whatever music inspires you.

My hope is that I'll help you become a well round musician and harmonica player :-)

Jordan has been working with Adam for a bit over a year, and he is terrific. He has great patience, enthusiasm, and really engages Adam and challenges him to do more in an inspiring way. We are so glad we found Jordan!

Harmonica is a great instrument but demands good breathing and a understanding of rhythm. I'll teach you some great breathing exercises and you'll learn music theory, which will help you tremendously when it comes to knowing what harmonica to use based off of the key the song your playing is in. All while having fun because that's what make the learning process enjoyable.

I've only just had my first lesson with James (aka Jimmy), and it is evident he has a very deep knowledge and experience. The manner with which James imparts his obvious talent and/or complex music theory to a novice like me is expressed in perfectly understandable terms. I hope to continue anon with James as I am able.

I have been taking voice lessons with Jimmy for the last 5 months. I never had musical training and was not even sure I had a voice ..... but I really wanted to sing and decided to give it a try. Jimmy is very knowledgeable about both physical and mental/emotional aspects of singing. It has been quite a journey..... but now I know that I do indeed have a voice. Of course it was a lot of work - Jimmy always had a homework for me - but It still feels like a miracle.
I am looking forward to further lessons with him so that I can keep learning.

I have an earned Masters degree in music and enjoy teaching students of all ages. I am happily married with 5 children at home--4 of them are musicians as well (the youngest is 4).. Students will quickly learn not only the basics of music theory, but will be playing songs as early as their first lesson. It is extremely rewarding watching students have fun, excel, and fall in love with making music. I presently teach music at 3 schools (1 college) and only have a few lessons slots available. I look forward to working with you.

Ronnie has been working with my dad who has dementia for the past couple of months and it's been great! He's very good at encouraging my dad to engage and motivating him to continue his guitar practice throughout the week. I can tell he is very knowledgeable/talented in his craft. Ronnie has been very kind, patient and professional, I would recommend him to friends and family~
