Don was wonderful with our son Brett, who enjoyed his first lesson immensely. We are definitely in this for the long haul with Don! He was very patient and very attentive to Brett.

Had a great first lesson with Don. I believe I will progress nicely under his tutelage. Already have a lot to work on.

Years ago I took Guitar Lessons at a local music store ( a very prominent one) as a raw beginner and quickly became frustrated with my lack of progress. Although my teacher was a great player and "very hot" to look at I soon began to feel like I was merely his "practice dummy."... I'd play the chords he showed me, endlessly,... while he seemed to be just practicing his solo playing. ... I then tried On-Line Lessons from various sites which were actually even less helpful and soon just lost interest completely.
A friend of mine said she had taken lessons from a Don DeBold for about 5 years before going off to college and highly recommended him.
I've now been taking lessons from Don for almost 2 years and having a blast ! I've learned how to play along with most of my favorite songs (mainly Blues and Rock) and now I'm learning to play Solo Guitar that needs no accompaniment !
Unlike my first teacher, during many lessons Don barely plays or even has his Strat on his lap because he's busy concentrating on what I'm doing !
He's a stickler yet lots of fun at the same time> I super recommend him as a Guitar and Music Teacher !!! Aneiah J.

My primary instrument is voice. I have been taking singing lessons since the age of 9, specializing in pop/rock and musical theater. When I entered college, I received classical voice lessons and really learned how the human voice works. My voice lessons will be filled with skills in good healthy singing, while still learning music that is of interest to the student. In addition to healthy singing technique, some stage presence will also be taught.

As a graduate of the Cleveland Institute of Music and the Colburn Conservatory, I look to pass on the great lessons and traditions of violin playing I've learned over the course of my career as a concert artist and pedagogue. We will work together to create a personalized curriculum, and progress at a pace that matches your comfort levels and your goals.

I've had the pleasure of teaching a regular private studio, and have given masterclasses nationally and internationally.

I love getting to know my students, and am very reachable outside of lesson times for questions, advice, and funny links! Please feel free to message me.

"We are so glad that we found Mr Nabinji Shrestra. We started tabla lessons with him for our 2 boys recently, he has been an excellent teacher for them. He is process oriented and a professional tabla teacher. Importantly, he is very patient and caring with the boys , which was a must requirement given their ages. We would highly recommend him as a tabla teacher."

"Without reservation, I give Shannon my highest rating as a singing teacher/coach. As an amateur who hadn't sung in decades, I wanted to see if it were possible to recapture the joy and ease I had with singing in my youth. Shannon's experience both with singing and with teacher were immediately evident. She has proven to be the perfect combination of enthusiastic, passionate, encouraging, and motivating. I am enjoying myself tremendously."
