Da-Rell is a very knowledgable and sensitive teacher, who worked with our son who definitely needs this special attention. We are sorry our son doesn't live in Da-Rell's area.

Da-Rell and I hit it off right away. In less than a day we already had a dance lesson planned, and we got right to it. Da-Rell has groove and is the number one recommended hip-hop dance trainer from the Take Lessons company. We went over moon walking, sliding / gliding, and other modern hip-hop moves. Da-Rell also helped film the dance moves on camera so I could keep the video as a study guide. Thank you Da-Rell!

The best of the best
Fawn is my daughters voice and piano coach and I could not be any happier with the instant results. We have tried many other voice coaches and there was only steady improvement. After One session with Fawn my daughter booked a voice over national job. She was able to apply all the tools Fawn showed her and it paid off.
As for the piano classes, after 6 months of piano at a traditional school she still had not learned the notes or much of anything, after 2 classes with Fawn she is now reading notes and playing songs off the book and she couldn't be happier.
I highly recommend Fawn

Fawn is very professional, experienced, and a lot of fun to work with. She's taught all skill levels, so she knows how to control the pace. I suck at all this so she's had to apply music theory on me to go along with the hands on teaching. I would definitely recommend choosing Fawn as a teacher!

I loved my lessons with Omar! He's very knowledgable, and not just about the instrument but music in general. He worked with me for about 7 months to help achieve my goal of learning to improvise on the bass guitar. Omar is very easy to talk to and very funny. He knew how to take complicated music theory and really break it down so that I could understand it better. I left each lesson with an assignment, a technique or a song to practice what we learned in that week's lesson.

I feel very comfortable with being able to be at a jam session and play along with the rest of the group. He taught me how to come up with licks using factorials, how to create a solo using modes and adding some flavor to the solos with techniques such as pop and slap or changing the tempo.

Thank you, Omar, for being such a great teacher! I feel much more confident in myself as a bass player because of the time you spent with me and all of the knowledge you departed onto me. I am very appreciative of you for that - thanks again!

Omar is just the best. Even when I've not practiced as much as I should between lessons I always make sure to go, because he always has so much to teach and I always leave feeling uplifted and excited about music. Omar never makes you feel stupid for asking "stupid" questions, and incorporates a range of methods to make the lessons meaningful. I never thought I'd be able to improvise a blues riff after just a few lessons with him playing backup drums! Omar thinks outside the box and is so adaptable to your needs. He showed me a "bass" he made out of a cast-off guitar with weed-whacker filament as strings for a client with very limited hand motion. Book a lesson with Omar; you won't regret it!

Great instructor. Attentive to your skills and needs/desires as a guitarist. Will teach you both how to play any song you would want to learn, fundamentals, and also will push you while still being positive and encouraging.

Added bonus he has a cute puppy!!!

"Bernard is the man!! Not only is he super chill and easy to work with, but he helped me with all aspects of my music. When I started working with him I was very new to rapping and only had lyrics (not even written to a beat). He helped me with my flow, rhythm, writing to a beat, voice, breathing and his creativity was apparent from day 1. Can’t say enough about how much he helped me develop as an artist."

She is attentive to my goals and goes above and beyond to help support my learning and capabilities, pushing me beyond what I thought possible. Yep. Fawn is the ONE who gets things DONE!"
