Chris is awesome. So unbelievably talented. He is encouraging and patient and is the perfect teacher for this mom of 2 college boys. Borrowed my youngest son's first acoustic guitar and am slowly learning and loving it. Sore fingertips and all.

Truly alot better than previous instructors trying to rush through time instructing you on sounds then the basic theory of music. Chris made it simple enough, even for a sixty year old adult to understand. Day one of my first class. Thank you.

Janis has been working with my daughter on multiple subjects, including Piano, reading, math, science, and ukulele since she was 4 years old. The impact that she has had on my child goes beyond just being a teacher - she has helped shape her personality and has instilled in her a love and enthusiasm for learning that is priceless.

Janis has been an amazing teacher and mentor to my children for the past 15 years. She was the kindest, and the most patient teacher with the greatest teaching method for math and English as a tutor to my son, who is currently studying for his MBA. And she was the most patient and flexible as well as detail oriented piano instructor for my younger daughter. Her unique teaching methods help her students learn and retain information and her kind smile and sense of humor make the kids want to continue their work and practice.

I like to make learning an instrument fun and easy to fit into your schedule!

If you're an adult finally getting around to learning your dream instrument or a child following your passion of playing music I tailor your lessons specifically to you. We look at what you want to play, pick specific songs that you want to learn, and learn the techniques you need to play these songs. It sounds simple, but it's so effective and much more fun to learn this way!

If you have any questions for me hit the "Ask Grant A Question" button, I would love to hear from you and discuss your interests in music!
