We are very pleased and excited with Edward. He's a patient teacher and most importantly, my grandson enjoys him. He looks forward to his lesson each week! Couldn't be happier with choosing Edward as our instructor.

I really like him and how he teaches. After just one class, I've noticed an improvement.

My 16-year-old grandson has had 2 lessons with Edward now. He's enjoying them so much and is the envy of his brother and sisters! Edward is patient with him, which is a good thing because Noah is extremely shy. But Edward has my grandson coming out of his shell :) I'm very pleased to have chosen Edward as our instructor.

Edward taught me how to hit good notes on the bugle within 30 minutes. He shows that he really wants to help you and is very knowledgeable on different ways to teach his students.
