I really enjoyed my class with Anthony. I am a beginner on the saxophone. Being a beginner, I was a bit intimidated before the class. However, all intimidation was gone once Anthony logged on and began to teach. He was very patient and his lessons are engaging. He came to the lesson prepared (not all teachers do). He is definitely knowledgable and a pro in the subject area and his teaching style is very effective. I came away from the lesson feeling like I really learned a lot. Thanks to Anthony, I feel like I will definitely be able to master my instrument. I highly recommend him.
Shaun
Great first lesson. I was nervous about my son taking lessons online, but right off the bat, the nerves went away. Anthony was excellent. Even in a virtual world, he paid attention to detail and noticed that my child's trombone slide became loose. He gave my son a tip on how to keep that from happening. While being downstairs I heard a song that my son has previously played, and in just 45 mins, my son sounded better than before. Looking forward to our next lesson and seeing how my son progresses .

Darrell helped me a lot to get a handle on my Ableton rig. I needed to set up midi tracks, locate presets to create cool sounds from plugins. Then I needed to export the audio of a couple of those tracks to import into a separate Pro Tools project. Lot of progress, thanks Darrell! -- Frank S

She moved at a pace that worked for me, and I already feel as though I have learned some basics. I'm excited to continue my lessons with her!"

"I have been taking music lessons of various types in and outside of school since elementary school and have never had a teacher who introduces concepts quite like Mr.Fuhrman. Things that I have struggled with ever since they were introduced; especially regarding rhythm/counting have become incredibly simple- as they should be! My progress regarding percussion (which I've been working with for over 4 years) has increased exponentially since working with him. Not only will he highly recommend essential practice, but he's willing to give you various strategies to manage time and to be able to fit the practice in. I've had music teachers (all of whom were very competent musicians) telling me to practice since the second grade, but no one's ever set aside some lesson time to discuss how to fit it in. I am a beginning music teacher myself and have already implemented some of the concepts he has taught with my own students. He's not only an incredibly skillful musician, but he is an amazing teacher as well. You won't regret doing lessons with him."

*Different techniques
*How to play the drums with different genres of music
*Rudiments!!"
