I had a great experience because Catherine is an amazing instructor.
She taught lessons with a high degree of professionalism and care. As a novice, I was able to learn a lot because Catherine was patient and attentive to my learning style.

My two oldest children (one more advanced in piano than the other) began taking lessons with Catherine just this year. They have both shown significant improvement and love her as an instructor. They also look forward to practicing in between lessons. We could not be happier.

Tony is a great teacher!

I started learning the clarinet half a year ago after playing the piano for almost 25 years. Even though I have a lot of music background, I had to start from scratch since I have no experience in any of the woodwind instruments. I'm glad I found Tony to be my clarinet teacher because not only he is a very patient person, he also notices my strengths and also weaknesses, so that I could spend more time on things that I need to work on to be better at the clarinet.
He is very easy to communicate, lessons are always fun and productive, I've been having a lot of fun picking up this new instrument!

Matt continues to challenge me. His teaching methods are great - he doesn't just teach techniques, he immediately puts techniques to work by applying them to a song I would like to learn. He is also very good about explaining the reasoning behind certain techniques/habits.

Excellent. Didn’t need so much info about electric guitars since we’re just starting and have an acoustic guitar. Otherwise, excellent.

Matt was very thorough in determining my current skill level (which is basically beginner with some previous limited exposure to music and some self-taught cowboy chords). He asked me what I wanted to focus on and worked with me on beginning to change some bad habits/techniques that I had developed. Matt didn't just instruct, he EXPLAINED. I felt that the lesson was much more of a mutual discussion than a lecture/demonstration, which is a great thing. I felt very comfortable and believe that Matt's teaching techniques will help me achieve my goals.

Profile_166853_pi_Trevor
"I started playing ukulele a few years ago and took lessons with a teacher that were, sadly, unfulfilling and unmotivating. I gave up on lessons until I decided to finally pick up guitar and try again to move forward with more lessons and strengthen my music theory base. Trevor has made learning the guitar a worthwhile investment that is absolutely paying off. Suddenly things make so much more sense musically, and I’m excited to practice at home and prepare to come back to my next lesson with new things to show him and new questions to ask. Trevor has been a delight as a teacher. He’s patient, understanding, funny, and willing to try more than a few angles to find out what excites his students and drives them to be better musicians than they were when they entered the room. I never dread a lesson with him, and I’m always just a little bummed when they’re finally over!"

"Most excellent first guitar lesson to where we actually played a song together. I'm blown away. What fun! I only hope I can remember the chords when I practice on my own, and I look forward to my next lesson with Mike. I can already tell I'll be signing up for more lessons. Great teacher, and I can say that because I tried to learn some years ago with another instructor, and he made me feel like I'd just never get it and may as well give up. Mike erased all that negativity for me in 30 minutes. Thanks, Mike!"

"Nils has been amazing to work with. Having used books and some other self teaching methods in the past, I felt stuck and after 1 lesson with Nils I immediately was able to get to the next step. One huge difference from other instructors is that Nils encourages me to learn with music that I like which makes a huge difference when practicing. Nils is extremely knowledgeable and patient, I can't thank him enough for his help and expertise."

"I can say without any reservation that Raymond is the complete package in a teacher! Raymond brings a sense of joy to learning guitar that makes me look forward to lessons, which I always leave in a better mood than when I started. He is probably the most insightful instructor that I have ever had the pleasure to work with--in music or any other field. He understands my strengths and weaknesses and tailors his teaching to my needs and my background. While I have a fair amount of musical experience, my struggles with stress and lack of confidence could have easily led me to quit taking lessons some time ago. But Raymond has a way of instilling confidence and making learning and practicing so fun that I just can't stop playing (and I started lessons in 2012)! Hearing him play with such grace and beauty, even the simple pieces that I am attempting, provides that much more motivation. And you'll never meet a warmer and more genuine person!"

"Steve G: A Superb Instructor

I'm a student of Steve G.'s and am in my 40's. I had previously taken classical piano lessons from the age of 7 until 18, but I wanted to try my hand at guitar. Having come from a long line of teachers in my own family, I am well acquainted with the great (but often under-appreciated) skill it requires to be a quality instructor of any kind. A superb instructor (like Steve G.) should possess the following qualities:

1. Patient: Prodigies or masters of their art often lack the ability to convey their ability on a small scale to their pupils. Steve is an amazing performer and artist, and yet he is humble enough to walk alongside you, particularly when you are establishing the fundamentals of guitar technique. He will find the areas that need work and allow you to see how a small amount of persistence can result in large gains.

2. Encouraging: Steve is always optimistic. You can feel his passion for music in every word he speaks. He has the rare gift of making you see the flashes of your own talent, and he will help you build on those. He will not only help you figure out ways to overcome your obstacles in playing, but he will also deepen your appreciation of the instrument itself. He even went with me to the store to pick out an awesome acoustic guitar!

3. Individualizing: Steve doesn't have a once-size-fits-all method of teaching. He is a very keen and observant instructor who will challenge you based on your progress as well as your natural abilities. He will get to know you as a human being and as a budding artist. He will find ways to allow you to take your own inspirations and use them to drive you forward in your musical exploration.

4. Exemplary: Steve has tremendous integrity, not only as an artist but also as a professional instructor. He is also a tremendous guitarist with a broad repertoire, and watching him play will motivate you to become even better.

I hope this review is helpful to anyone who is considering taking lessons. Sign up with Steve and you won't regret it! Good luck on your journey!"
