He is well educated in the music field and has had so much performing experience so he has a very well rounded background, I think you would be very pleased

Aaron spends quality time with our daughter and goes through material that is appropriate for her playing level. We are extremely pleased with his attention to her positioning and bowing. Great thanks to his teaching to help our daughter to work on skills!

Aaron teaches piano to my 8 year old daughter, Abby. She is shy but loves piano and she very much looks forward to his visits! He customizes her lessons to her skill level and interests. No question he is a serious musician, but he is also laid back and funny which is perfect for young kids as it puts them at ease. Abby is thriving under Aaron's instruction, I'm so glad we found him!

"What a great teacher

Raymond has taken his time with my daughter Paige who is 14 and is very patient with her. He will let her know where she is slacking and also what she is doing okay. For a beginer,Paige has come a long way on only 6 lessons. Raymond has nerves of steel because I know what its like dealing with teenagers. We thank you for all of your hard work and hospitality.

"Barbara is a fantastic instructor. I took lessons as a child into my mid teens and quit. I recently decided to start back up. With 20+ years gap in my instruction, I was nervous about finding an instructor who could keep up with me. I knew I could still easily play music but would have LOTS of questions in the interim that I theoretically would have known otherwise playing the given level of music.

Barbara has been a PERFECT fit for what I was looking for in an instructor. She’s been helping me refine my skills and fill in many gaps in my instruction. She’s been wonderfully supportive and encouraging. I’ve felt my confidence grow tremendously over the last month. I can truly sense that she’s as excited to be teaching as I am to be learning.

I HIGHLY recommend Barb, especially to adults looking to rekindle a long lost love of piano<3"

"I am so glad that I had the privilege of meeting Cosima and having her as my singing instructor. Singing is something that I always loved and still do, so I was nervous to show my flaws, but Cosima was always very encouraging. She listened carefully and always tried to find a way to help me reach what ever goal we were working on. Even though I had so much trouble with my voice she never gave up on me, she always tried to figure out different exercises that would help me out. She always asked what she could do better as an instructor to help me reach my goal. One thing I loved receiving were my lesson notes, because I could look over them and remind myself on what I needed to work on. She is extremely understanding! And very patient! I miss my lessons with her! She is the most wonderful, down to earth person and is great at what she does!"

How to Play Guitar Chords in Different Positions up the Neck

Chords are the foundation of all of those guitar riffs you love so much. Here, guitar teacher Kirk R. walks you through the basics of guitar chords and the importance of knowing how they're constructed... Guitar is an amazing instrument, not only because of all that it can do, but also because of how great it can sound when not doing much at all. One of the ways that guitar is most often heard is by strumming the standard chords that beginner guitarists learn. However, I often inter …
