Shon is very accommodating to helping you learn at your own pace. He is very patient, encouraging and insightful. Shon is very relaxed which helps me feel comfortable and not feel pressured. He gives reassurance all the time that the "growing pains" of learning guitar are normal things everyone fights through. I would highly recommend him.

Kevin is a great teacher - he has brought out the drummer in my 2nd grader, and he has been able to do this through Zoom, not even face to face. Highly recommended!
Kristin
Kevin is an enthusiastic and professional teacher! He has built up my son's confidence, and given him opportunities to perform and hone his percussion skills. I highly recommend Kevin!

I was out of town when my 15-year old son had his lesson with Kevin, so I sent a text to my son to find out how it went. "He is the best guitar teacher ever!!" my son replied. I think that says it all.

Picture this....you get home after a long day of work or school, you feel a little stressed out by the world, wishing you had more time to get the endless list of things done and more energy to do them.....

Instead of turning on Netflix and zoning out, you pick up your guitar and play your favorite song.

Feels pretty great right?!

Learning to play an instrument is one of life's most rewarding endeavors, that just keeps getting better the longer you pursue it.

With playing an instrument, you will have something you love to do and look forward to doing every single day, enriching your life and those around you.

If you'd like to chat or have any questions just shoot me a message and I'll get back asap :)

Thanks for checking out my profile and I hope to hear from you soon.

Rachel is absolutely wonderful! My daughter is 6 and has a speech delay. She's been taking lessons with Rachel for 3 months. At first she was very shy and wouldn't sing. Now she hums the exercises throughout the week in between lessons and asks when she will see Rachel. I would say one of Rachel's greatest gifts is meeting the student where they are and keeping the lesson fun & exciting!
AK
Rachel is such a warm and encouraging teacher. My daughter who was mostly a shy girl was very comfortable with her from the first class itself. She has not only taught her many songs, but also encouraged her into love for singing, which is so valuable. My daughter can easily sing with confidence in a room full of people ! Her focus and singing has greatly improved.
In fact this is our second time back with Rachel, we had to stop for some reason, now we are back again !
I would recommend Rachel to anyone !
Elsa
Rachel is a great teacher. I loved how she interacted with my daughter. My daughter went from beginners to playing current songs on the piano. Rachel knew how draw out my daughters skills, challenging her, so that she can grow as a pianist. Rachel was always patient, and curious with her. I highly recommend her as an instructor.

"Nick Russo sparked a love for music in me that I had once thought lost. I was hesitant to re-learn the guitar after years of playing aimlessly, but Nick has guided me and inspired me throughout the whole process. He is incredibly patient and understanding with me, even when I don't practice as much as I should. His knowledge of stringed instruments and music from Metallica to Carcassi is incredible. In our lessons, he blends everything that he has learned over his many years of education and performance to teach me a holistic view of music that has changed the way I look at the instrument. If you want to learn how to play an instrument or become a better musician, no matter your age, there is no better person to guide you than Nick Russo. Trust me, pick Nick!"

"First, Joel is an amazing teacher! Next, while I think I might have some innate musical talent, I have often gotten nervous around my previous teachers. Not with Joel!

Joel has a way of explaining things and breaking them down in a way that I feel more capable/confident in being able to accomplish the task. He also has a very calm and accepting nature about him so that if I do make a mistake, I don’t get nervous and want to run away!

I would recommend Joel as a great guitar teacher! And, while I am not trained professionally as a musician, it seems to me that Joel really knows what he’s doing with his musical knowledge and talent with his guitar."
