I had my first lesson in piano and Craig is a very nice instructor. His studio is very well equipped and he showed me few books that would help a beginner

I was a nervous first time student, but Craig made me comfortable and was knowledgeable and professional. I feel inspired about returning next week.

Just met Craig this evening. I can tell already he will be my vocal teacher from this point forward. He is a skilled and talented musician and after some vocal exercises and a couple of songs he provided some recommendations which I will apply immediately to improve my singing and save my vocal chords. It adds so much that he is also a very personable guy and ensures every minute of the lesson is devoted to learning. Thank you!!

My daughter really enjoyed her first piano lesson. Craig responded quickly and was flexible to meet our needs. He gave her some great tips for getting started and is excited to continue learning.

Craig is very knowledgeable and a very patient teacher. I'm returning to studying music after a approx. 20 year break. He is very flexible with my interests and what I want to accomplish.

Craig is great to work with. He is obviously very knowledgeable. He's encouraging and patient with me and I learn more and more at each lesson.
