Nick was a patient and enthusiastic teacher. I was nervous to start music lessons in my late 30s, but he made me feel comfortable and I never felt embarrassed. He taught me the songs I was interested in learning, but snuck in music theory and the basics along the way! Highly recommend
Shannon
Nick has done a great job with our 14 year old son! He has a great laid back style that is appreciated and keeps the lessons fun and engaging. Not only is he learning to play some of his favorite songs, but he is also getting ear training, music reading, picking, chord building, etc. We would highly recommend Nick!
Rachel
I would very highly recommend Nick as a guitar teacher. I've been taking lessons for five weeks and he has already helped me a lot with my technique. He has a great combination of the knowledge of a professional musician and also the patience and guidance of a very experienced teacher.

I also like that he is helping me with ear training. I've had previous experience with reading music, but he is really expanding my horizons with listening to music and trying to figure it out by using basic principles. This is a way to learn that I hadn't experience before in guitar lessons in the past, and I think it's a great way to learn.

I'm looking forward to many more lessons to come. This has really helped me to enjoy playing the guitar again!

My first lesson was a real happy one, I was nervous and stressed about starting. Ms. Stephanie was very pleasant, explained things so I could comprehend it., she was strong in confidence yet happy in mild in teaching style. I’m very hopeful I will learn a lot from this brilliant teacher.
Shannon
I am an adult beginner violinist. When I first met Stephanie, I had barely touched a violin, but I was determined to learn how to play it. With her help and patience, I am progressing through the Suzuki method as well as doing ear training and music theory. Stephanie is an excellent musician as well as instructor! Her method of teaching keeps the students engaged, encouraged and excited about learning music from all sides of it.
Naomi G.
I strongly recommend Ms. Quinn. She is amazing. I love a teacher who is passionate about what she does and Ms. Quinn has motivated me to love the violin and work harder to improve. She is slightly strict but very patience and kind, always pushing you to work hard and do your best. I learned to play violin a few years ago as a beginner and stopped playing for a few years. I was nervous to begin online violin lessons considering that I learn better face to face. However, Ms. Quinn has done an amazing job at teaching me, I have been taking lessons with her for a year now and have learned so much I didn’t know before which has also grown my love for violin.

My teaching approach and vocal studio embrace the singer's personal and professional journey.

Many teachers conduct voice lessons using a series of preconstructed warmups and vocalises. This is rigid and ineffective, as each singer's vocal journey is unique. My teaching approach embraces the individual strengths of the singer, catering to their specific pedagogical needs. Every lesson is different. Creativity, playfulness, curiosity, humor, exploration, sensitivity, and respect are held in a safe container during lessons, acting as fundamental collaborative elements of my studio.

I am joyful to have extensive experience collaborating with:

*singers and dancers performing on Broadway and national tours

*contemporary recording artists

*actors in film and television

*voice over and audio book talent

*university and conservatory musical theater and voice majors

*performing arts middle and high school students

I take pride in working with any person who has ...

It's rare to find a voice teacher that is honest, constructive, kind, and encouraging all at once, but that is Desiree! She is incredibly warm but is still upfront and gives truthful and beneficial feedback. She is playful and up to try anything, always welcoming ideas from students. I feel I've grown immensely as a vocalist through my time working with her. She has equipped me with tools and exercises I can do on my own when struggling with a piece of music that I constantly use. She is also so generous, and I have always felt that she genuinely wants me to succeed. Do yourself a favor, and work with Desiree!!!!!!!

Amazing teacher! I feel very self-conscious about singing (or performing of any kind, really), but Chau is so supportive, encouraging and non-judgmental. She gives excellent feedback and tailors her lessons to your level, with just the right amount of difficulty to keep things challenging but not so much that you feel frustrated and overwhelmed. I can't recommend her enough :)
Jodi
Chau is a wonderful voice and singing coach. She has worked with two of my daughters over the years, and has helped them hone their natural talents. Chau is friendly, personable, and a fabulous instructor. I highly recommend her!
Wayne Crocker
Chau is a excellent instructor she did teach me the small things that you can do with your voice to improve the quality of your voice which helped me. At age 60 she was able to teach a old dog a few new tricks hey it can happen miracles do happen in the future I hope to continue to use her as a instructor. Thank you for the healing lessons because music does heal your soul

"My son is a very active 7 year old. Teaching him Arabic via zoom is a challenge of its own. Due to our Summer schedule my son has temporarily stopped taking classes with Marie (but our goal is for him to resume once school is back in session). With that being said, Marie was always very patient with my son and found ways to keep him intrigued. Even if it meant to talk about "lizards"! I liked the fact that Marie expressed to my son that it was his responsibility to gather his worksheets, prepare for the class, and do any extra work. That showed me that she took the extra step(s) to also teach him responsibility, which was a bonus!!!!"
