I structure my lessons so students learn what they want to learn, while also building a strong foundation of guitar skills. I use Hal Leonard books, & Award WInning #1 best program Steve Krenz's Learn & Master Guitar and also have the following tools available to use during lessons. I have a Mesa boogie all tube amp and Line 6 spider modeling amplifier, Cordoba Classical guitar, Ibanez and Epiphone Riviera deluxe electric, Taylor Acoustic, Presonus Recording equipment, sheet music, tab and more. Let's turn the amp to 11 and rock and roll!"

We are loving cello with Quinn! We had her in person before COVID and now online. She does a great job of guiding the learning process and working with the student (my daughter as an individual)
Shauna
My 9 yr old daughter began cello lessons with Quinn about 2 weeks before lockdown started. I was worried that online lessons wouldn't work out, but Quinn has been amazing. She's great at explaining everything so that my daughter understands, and she pushes just enough to keep her interested without being overwhelmed. She also answers questions promptly by email when any problems arise. I can't recommend her highly enough!

Although I stopped my piano lessons a while ago due to some personal issue, I really enjoyed my learning process with DeAnna. She organized her lessons very well and made me progressing every week. She's a really good teacher. Love her!

Most single productive day I’ve had at the piano.
Martin
DeAnna has excellent credentials as a pianist and music theorist, but more importantly for me she is a patient teacher and good communicator who works hard to ensure that I learn and understand even the most basic skills and techniques. She is also fun to talk to and be with, and her love of music is infectious. She is an excellent teacher for an older student, and I imagine for younger ones too.

I have taken Tai Chi and meditation lessons from George for several years, and he is very knowledgeable and well-studied.

I took Tai Chi lessons with Sifu in person, at the Kroc Center location in Salem, and he was a great instructor! Patient, easy to follow, and a clear master of his craft. He not only teaches the moves of Tai chi, but explains their significance as both a martial art and a meditative practice. I am looking forward to our next round of lessons!

She is very nice, and gentle, but knows how to motivate her students to work harder. Our daughter enjoys this, because she feels that Miss Anna really cares, and the results are obvious. In the past three years our daughter’s technique has improved tremendously."

"Can’t say enough about Stephanie. In person or online, you’re honestly getting top notch instruction. I’m bare bones new to singing, but two weeks in, I definitely feel a difference. She’s made me feel awesome about the things I excel at, but won’t let me be lazy about the things I need to work on.

My favorite thing about my lessons with Stephanie is that when I don’t quite get a concept, she always has an exercise to help me understand."

In just a few lesson I feel I have made great progress while enjoying myself immensely. Tom's lessons are a delightful experience; I alway leave them feeling very energized and refreshed. My favorite part of our lesson is when we play duets together. Tom plays his Euphonium, I love the sound of that instrument, while I play trumpet; these duets sound just heavenly. I do not have enough good things to say about this instructor, other than I am simply delighted with the experience. Thank you Tom. -s."
