Tired of being frustrated by the pace of self-teaching or is your child bored with the progress in school band class? Are you an adult who never played an instrument but are really interested in learning a wind instrument?

Excellent teacher and a great fit for my beginner! Highly recommended!
Alex
My son started to play saxophone a few years ago and he really liked it up until this year. Not a lot was happening with band lessons online this year hence no progress and no motivation. I reached out to Michael with the only goal in mind: to spark the passion to play saxophone for my 12y.o. son again. We've already had a bit over 10 lessons and my son loves his lessons. I can see really good progress but most importantly he wants to play. It's not a chore for him any more. It's actually fun and he enjoys it. Now we can build on that. Michael has great attitude and communicates with kids very well. He definitely has a passion for music and it translates to kids.
Liam
Michael has great energy and excitement for the music. He picked a great fitting piece to work on with our teenager. He helped our son to remember why he loves music and recapture some lost skills with all the COVID down time. Thank you!

I wrote a review before, when I had just started having singing lessons with Erin but it’s been more than three years, so it’s time for an update. ;)
I really enjoy my lessons with Erin and I notice a great difference in my vocal range and technique from when I first started having lessons with her. She’s patient and supportive, and she always has great suggestions for new songs to learn. I’m really building up a repertoire. :)
Erin offers for her students to participate in studio recitals twice a year and I feel like I‘ve also improved my performance skills (stage fright is real for me but I’m slowly becoming more confident singing in front of others).
We had to move the lessons and recitals online during the pandemic and that worked out really well too.

I really recommend lessons with Erin, you will learn a lot and you‘ll have fun doing so!
Robin
A great first lesson. Erin is patient and understanding. I look forward to our next session.

"My son is very difficult to work with. He had never seen any reason to memorize a monologue word for word. Jason had a very difficult job ahead of him, getting my son ready for his auditions for college. Through working with Jason,my son realized the value of memorization, and practicing his monologue enough times to get it down. He is attending AMDA now, and he could have picked from three colleges that he auditioned for.

Jason kept his cool and worked well through all the little shows of emotion and pique that my son put on. Jason really came through for us and we will be using his services again for our daughter. Not only does Jason know his stuff, but he knows how to work with and handle teens."

I have long realized it takes me more time to develop than other students. After working with Stephanie, eventually I was able to start social dancing. Eventually, we also worked together on performance classes with other students. These were all wonderful experiences for me. Stephanie is very dedicated and passionate about dance. She is very attentive to detail. I highly recommend Stephanie!"

"My friends and I hired Kenneth to choreograph a surprise 90's hip hop routine for a friend's wedding. When we first met him, he was very welcoming and energetic. Which made us beginners feel at ease. He incorporated the type of music and moves we wanted. He mixed the music and also made sure the choreography was in sync with the music. He's very patient and made sure we got the routine before moving onto the next steps. The fact there were 3 of us he had to teach, he was willing to work with each of our schedules. I *highly* recommend Kenneth as a choreographer. He has lots of passion for what he does and you can tell by the way he dances. We love our routine and we hope to make Kenneth proud when we finally dance at the wedding. Thank you for your patience in teaching us."
