About Carolyn

Coming from a large extended family in Hawaii, I was surrounded by luau music, kachi-kachi dancing, Japanese bon dances, handsome local guys singing and playing their guitars and my aunties strumming their ukes and singing old songs. I reveled in walking alone in Nature or playing piano and singing

Eric J is really helping me improve my voice. I’m singing songs I never ever imagined I would be able to sing in such a short time. Thanks so much for sharing your knowledge of the voice with us. He doesn’t limit you. He teaches you that you can sing whatever you love if you practice everyday and put the work in. I’ve seen a huge difference in my voice over the few months I’ve been regularly taking his classes.

I have just started guitar lessons with Stan and the lessons are going very well. It's exciting to be learning note reading which is something I have always wanted to do. Stan is thorough and clear in his instructions and I look forward to each lesson. I feel lucky to have Stan as my teacher.

Stan is very knowledgeable about singing, and he teaches more than just voice lessons. It seems like he looks for the best in you as an artist, and try to take it to another level. I'm a new student of his, and it's been great so far. Looking forward to the weekly lessons.

Instead of panicking when I get a piece of new music, I now see it as a treasure trove of information I now have the key to unlock.

"Gregg was my musical instructor during the early 1980ties. What I learned in a few lessons with him was more that I could have expected. I was primarily focused on percussion, of which his vast knowledge was highly dynamic. I learned about poly-rhythms, Indian ti-hies, and complex time signatures. He had available much reference material that he provided me. And over the years his musical insights have not only supplemented my inquiries, but made me a better musician and person. I hope you have a chance to study with Gregg, as you will be introduced to a new and better way of musicianship!"

I take music theory lessons with Loretta. I have taken music theory before with 3 other teachers . None of them make it as simple as she does. She explains it in a way that I can understand. I love her and will recommend her to anyone that wants to learn music in general. She is amazing. Can't wait to learn more from this brilliant, professional, musician!"

"We were great peers in college

I had the privilege to work with Melissa when I was a student at Cornish College of the Arts. Melissa was always so dedicated and encouraging towards me and my musical goals. If I had a question she would be right there to help me solve it. Melissa's strongest suit in my opinion is her ability to compose music. She is extremely patient, passionate and detailed in her work. Thanks Melissa for everything!"
