Ronald Ray S.
My name is Ronald S. At the age of 9, I started playing the guitar for my Father's Gospel Group who is a great Gospel D.J. (Big Clyde). Through the years I have taken several guitar courses from several instructors. In the last seven months I have taken instructions from Mr. Christian, I have excelled further and have learned more than all my other adventures.

Micheal's business based environment in an open studio type classroom is a must. In Micheal's unique style of teaching you not only learn to play the guitar, but he also instructs you in song with a spirit of being well satisfied.

As shoppers pass through the store they enjoy the sounds of students playing their guitars following the guidance of Mr. Christian. This also gives his students a chance to perform in front of other people giving them a finer definitions for the art of music. If you are looking for a music instructor, one who focuses in on your difficult areas and searches for improvement to make you the best musician possible in all areas, or if you are just looking to learn and have lots of fun, then Mr. Christian is your contact. Please visit him at one of his jam sessions..

As a vocal teacher, I am able to teach my students how to sing in a mix with a relaxed larynx. This allows students to sing many styles of music properly and in a vocally healthy way. Singing through the bridges and expanding the vocal range is also emphasized. We will work on proper vowel placement as well. I teach ear training and can work with students on sight singing and interval training. I encourage my students to learn all styles of singing including classical, rock, pop, broadway and jazz. I've also worked with several singer/songwriters, helping to polish original songs and have even coached them in the studio.

About Molly

I booked Hunter last-minute for help with a big audition, and I'm so glad I did. He was able to hone in on my strengths and give clarity to the script. While I didn't book the part, I did get a call-back, which was a pretty big deal for me. Totally recommend him if you want to up your game.
he's nice fun and very good at teaching acting and doing acting.

In addition to learning sight-reading skills, students will also develop ear training abilities by learning to identify specific pitches/tones, chords, scales, intervals, rhythms and melodies aurally. Learning this skill set will assist students with learning new music quicker and more efficiently. Certain drills and exercises during lessons will be implemented.

Tom Bruce
I am a 61 year old retired teacher, and I have been been taking weekly lessons with Ruth for the past 8 months as a beginner student. She is an excellent teacher showing lots of patience and encouragement. She makes learning the piano a fun and challenging experience. Together we set weekly goals for my playing that keep me progressing and improving at a steady rate. I would highly recommend Ruth for both children and adults.

Ruth is an awesome instructor. She is very patient and has a unique way of making the lessons fun and relaxed. I am 61 years old and revisiting the piano after not playing for 45 years. Ruth has made the lessons very productive. Each week I feel like I've really progressed! Yea!!

"Yana is a wonderful teacher. She is patient, enthusiastic, responsible, and helps her students find joy in playing -- and practicing. She teaches technique but also encourages students to have their own opinions about music. She helps them expand their own knowledge of all kinds of music and performance -- from classical to folk to modern. We feel very lucky that our daughter has been able to take lessons from her."

Mercedes helped me learn a sense of confidence that is not only used in Trumpet but in life."
