Laura is a great instructor for any student, especially for beginners who can learn and adapt quickly. She is extremely patient with students and thoroughly explains everything. She tailors music choices to the student’s preference while also making sure classical pieces and theory are covered at the same time. She encourages students to be creative and individualistic instead of enforcing strict boundaries when playing modern pieces. Laura consistently gives constructive critiques and positive reinforcement to help students understand their mistakes and fix them properly. Overall, she is an excellent piano teacher and I could not recommend her more. In only 1.5 years of lessons with Laura, I have improved tremendously thanks to her brilliant style of teaching.

I studied with Bennie for several years with the goal of improving my improvisational skills and hand independence. I improved in both areas significantly and am much stronger player. Bennie can push you to a very high level and he stays very engaged between lessons for questions, feedback and additional support. He even attended my performance shows and offered feedback. My only regret is that my day job obligations, available practice time and personal learning speed did not allow a greater lesson frequency.
Bob S.
I couldn't ask for a better teacher. Bennie has the talent and experience to help anyone trying to either learn from scratch or improve their current skill level. Due to the fact that I travel quite a bit with my business I used the holiday season to get a refresher course and Bennie was the right teacher for this. He gave me more in 5 lessons then I could have gotten from anyone else if I had 20 lessons. Unfortunately, I travel a lot for my business and I can't commit to a regular lesson schedule.

I teach Music Knowledge, because it works in any and every musical situation. A "theory'" is just a hypothesis, Music Knowledge works with everyone and works every time- they're is no guessing...improvisation is a whole nutter' animal, though!

My first lesson was a real happy one, I was nervous and stressed about starting. Ms. Stephanie was very pleasant, explained things so I could comprehend it., she was strong in confidence yet happy in mild in teaching style. I’m very hopeful I will learn a lot from this brilliant teacher.

I am an adult beginner violinist. When I first met Stephanie, I had barely touched a violin, but I was determined to learn how to play it. With her help and patience, I am progressing through the Suzuki method as well as doing ear training and music theory. Stephanie is an excellent musician as well as instructor! Her method of teaching keeps the students engaged, encouraged and excited about learning music from all sides of it.
Naomi G.
I strongly recommend Ms. Quinn. She is amazing. I love a teacher who is passionate about what she does and Ms. Quinn has motivated me to love the violin and work harder to improve. She is slightly strict but very patience and kind, always pushing you to work hard and do your best. I learned to play violin a few years ago as a beginner and stopped playing for a few years. I was nervous to begin online violin lessons considering that I learn better face to face. However, Ms. Quinn has done an amazing job at teaching me, I have been taking lessons with her for a year now and have learned so much I didn’t know before which has also grown my love for violin.

"I've been taking lessons with David for more than 2 years, he's amazing... he's very knowledgeable, patient, knows how to explain difficult concepts and can adapt to a broad range of topics, covering different areas that I'm interested on, including music theory, songwriting, guitar and bass, and music production.

David is both a professional musician and an experienced instructor, and you can tell the difference that makes in every class.

We started with at-home classes, but switched to online during the pandemic and that's working pretty good for me to.

I'd recommend David to anyone looking to learn a new instrument, get better at it or expand their music knowledge in general."

"As a preface, I am a beginner-intermediate music producer, so very much of what I make is still rather amateur. I have spent tens of hours watching different YouTube videos and reading blogs about music production trying to learn how to get better. If I had to put a time frame, I'd say I've been producing as a hobby for about 4 years now.

Anyway, I had a 1-hour lesson with Mark and I feel like I learned more about mixing in that 1-hour than I have in the months watching YouTube videos. Mark is super knowledgeable about music production and its techniques and he had answers to all of my questions. If you're on the fence about booking, I would highly suggest booking with Mark as he is professional, knowledgable, and easy to understand as he breaks down his methods in a beginner-friendly manner - things some other producer mentors struggle with I feel.

I would definitely book again with Mark in the future. If you want to level up your production, Mark is your best bet."

I have had the opportunity to study with him at 2 separate different periods in my music career/life—years ago, at a music college first, and more recently I've had the opportunity to reconnect with him and continue furthering my music knowledge with his great help over online classes.

How to Change the Key of a Song With and Without a Computer

What Does it Mean to Change a Key? To change a song’s “key” means to shift the whole musical system to a higher or lower position. This process is called “transposition.” Performers often need transpose a song to better fit their voices. That way, a performer with a naturally lower singing voice (like myself) will be able to more comfortably sing a song that was originally written for someone with a naturally higher voice. Or vice versa.  For singers, transposition feels fairly …
