Great teacher.
Mary Beth Y.
I am continuing to study cello with Jamie and I am much further along than I anticipated. I also study piano, so I am not a traditional beginner cello student. Jaime is able to fine tune my lessons to take this into account and build on it. He is very knowledgeable about proper technique as well as music theory. I would recommend him without reservation for all abilities and ages.
Maureen
Jamie worked with me when I was trying to pick up cello after not playing since high school. He is extremely knowledgeable and encouraging. He's very good at identifying problems with technique and suggesting approaches to fix them, and fun to work with.

Erica is a great teacher! She uses individual approach to everyone. Lessons are productive. I began to feel more confident when I speak English.

Erica, thank you very much for our classes. I am really happy to have chosen you as my tutor. I don´t feel it’s a traditional English class (that is normally boring). I feel like I am discussing with a friend about life, career, humans, future, social behavior, corporate behavior and so on. Its a pleasure for me to have the opportunity to interact almost everyday with you. Congrats for your skills as an English teacher and thank you for your patience during this transitional life period.

Charlie is the most patient and musical music teacher I have ever experienced and I am old! His approach to teaching is first rate. He is incredibly knowledgeable about all forms of music.
Larry B
This guy is incredible. He creates a safe space where you feel inspired to improvise and experiment with music. He showed me songs that changed my music taste and playing style completely. The best part of learning with him is that it feels like you are jamming with a good friend. He not only is an incredible musician but also a great mentor. I have only good things to say about Charlie
Kevin
Charlie McClaren is one of the greatest music teachers I've ever had. Learning music with him never felt like a chore, rather it was a journey we shared. He's patient and understanding, but he'll make sure you understand the music thoroughly. He showed me that music was more than an art form, it's a lens you see the world through. I can't recommend Charlie enough, no matter where you are on your musical journey, he'll take you to the next level!
