Brynn was such a great teacher for my daughter! She was engaging and supportive throughout the lesson. Her knowledge about music and the viola is phenomenal! My daughter is so excited to connect with Brynn for her lessons each week.
Salome
It was our first lesson and as a parent I trust Brynn to position my daughter to be a great violin player. As she instructed my child she also made sure that I understood what she was teaching so that I can assist her with practices at home. This was very forward thinking and I appreciated her sharing her knowledge with me! My daughter has a great time!

There is a potential in every person to be truly great at any one thing. All it takes is hard work and honest determination, with determination being the most important. Because where determination comes, hard work follows naturally.
I hope to inspire my students to really love making music and being creative with their instruments. I can give my students all the information in the world and tips on how to improve at violin playing, but in the end it will not matter if the student has no desire to improve. And that is why I love to teach- inspiring students to love what they do!

Ear training is the first, and most important skill a musician needs. I have been learning and studying ear training my whole life, and it is a huge part of my life as a musician. From singing, to recognizing pitches, to writing out melodies I hear, to improvising - the basis of all of this is ear training. I strive to help students develop these skills as well.

Amanda taught me a music theory lesson, and she was very patient and understanding as I worked through the theory. I have not found the same level of understanding in other instructors as I have in Amanda. Thank you Amanda!

I took my first lesson with Amanda recently, and learned so much!! In a short amount of time, she was able to teach me embouchure, breathing, and technique tips that greatly benefitted my playing. I will definitely be signing up for another soon!

Undisputed fact: playing ukulele is lots of FUN!

I love playing ukulele. It’s fun, it’s easy to learn, and people get a big kick out of it! Chords are easy to play and the technique is simple. Whether you are picking up an instrument for the first time or adding to your current repertoire, ukulele is always a great choice.

Every single lesson is designed just for you. We focus on your goals while having fun playing music together. We talk about good practice habits and how to achieve new heights with your abilities. You learn to play songs that you recognize as well as improvising your own.

Together we will discover the many roles that the ukulele can have including rhythms, melodies, fingerpicking, and solos. I will also help you understand the fundamental principles of music. This will take the guess work out of your playing, enabling you to make solid choices with consistent results.

Talk to you soon!

"I had a lesson with Fawn two days ago and I thought she seemed like she probably knew what she was doing, since I'd done some research - though I didn't expect her to at least quadruple my singing ability within 10 minutes. (That's not an exaggeration).

So, if you're on this page, and you're looking for a vocal coach, you have found the right one! THIS is the girl! Fawn is a literal genius, every question in my session she answered, it made sense, and she was able to talk the talk, walk the walk and prove what she said with MY voice.

I'm using these exercises Fawn has given me, and from 1 hour of her time, my confidence has grown hugely. I'll definitely be going back...maybe for life!

Thinking about it, she might actually be a magical genie!"

"A great experience.

As an adult, beginner student I have nothing but good things to say about Ian. He has a very good demeanor during class and takes the time to find out what styles you are interested in.

He has the patience and communication skills that are found in superior instructors (I have been to a couple others and have stuck with Ian). His passion for music is infectious.

He challenges me to become better with each week and is good at instilling a sense of competition. I highly recommend him as an instructor."
