My son has had a total of 3 virtual guitar instructors all of whom he has really liked but Kenton is his absolute favorite. “I like all of my instructors but Kenton is really the best, he really listens to me and takes into account what I know and what I want to learn when making my lesson. He’s really fun and great at his job”

Kenton is an amazing instructor. I wasn't sure anyone would have enough patience to teach my 7 yr old daughter, but he has such a gift for working with kids that she is actually learning to play and looks forward to every lesson! She is starting to understand how to read music, and Kenton's enthusiasm and encouragement are making it such a fun process. I would recommend him to anyone of any age, at any point of their musical journey!

I came to the United States with about three English words. One of them was the word - pencil. Not very useful you may agree.

I have become a translator in real time, published writer of both professional writing in my field of music and of fiction. My writing has been sold in all stores and outlets. It has been carried and sold online as well as in all stores of Barns and Noble, Amazon in hard cover as well as soft cover editions. I have been published in newspapers as a music critic and my editing of scientific literature that pass peer review on the largest online magazine has helped publish and approve works by PhD musicologists as well as faculty of the famed Oxford University. My speaking is without accent or any indication of my origins. My original language is Russian.

Joseph has a wealth of knowledge about speaking, listening, vocals, etc.

He created a welcoming environment in our online lessons that made it easy to be vulnerable and get right to working on new skills.

I highly recommend for others looking to better understand their voice and communication style, and learn to hone them.
Catherine K.
Joseph put us at ease immediately. Our first lesson included valuable information on how to warm up our voices, increase our range and protect our voices. We look forward to our next lesson.
Donna
I have been studying piano with Joseph for nearly five years. In that time, I’ve learned more about the piano and musical interpretation than I ever thought possible.

Joseph’s technical ‘short cuts’ are amazing! He illustrates ways for your hands and your mind to work that are tailor made for you. Learning from him is so fun it seems almost effortless.

The way Joseph teaches allows you to develop at your own pace. The atmosphere is always relaxed yet everything moves along quickly.

At the open classes I attend, his other students are progressing very rapidly too. After each class, we share our impressions. The mood is elated because it feels like we stepped back in time and into history.

Joseph often quotes inspired wisdom of his historic teachers in our lessons. He is a great inspiration on his own with great musical insights.

I’m playing Beethoven and Chopin works I never thought I could approach at this stage of study, with great depth of understanding. I now play with greater passion and skill, get compliments from everyone I play for, and no longer worry about playing in public.

I look forward to each and every lesson with Joseph. His encouragement and support makes learning so rewarding! Anyone who finds this musical treasure is a lucky person and I cannot recommend him highly enough.

I am new to playing the flute, self-taught for 8 months. Cooper is very personable and I think he spotted my weaknesses quickly. He was very encouraging and gave me a mixture of exercises working on the beginnings of listening and playing with another musician as well as fingering. He is going to get some theory in as well, so that’s hitting all of what is essential for me to move forward.

Cooper is kind and encoraging and helped my son work through a difficult audition piece. He really related well with my son and made him feel proud of his abilities and skills. I would be glad to recommend Cooper.

If you've ever watched an experienced dancer perform a tap routine, you probably watched in disbelief as their feet turned into a blur of movement that seemed to move independently from the rest of their body. Sometimes the sound effects are even more impressive; when done well, tap dance is a musical art form that creates its own rhythm. Do you want to train your own feet to create this unique mixt …
