As a 63-year old I was concerned it would tough for me to learn. I'm sure I don't retain and absorb like a 12-year old but I AM LEARNING TO PLAY. Justin is very patient and accommodating and I am inspired to practice weekly. Most of all I'm having fun.

Justin is the quintessential professional in every way. His approach is to make you a better student of music not necessarily just learn guitar. He is patient with you and very positive and reinforcing. The passion he has for music is obvious from the first time you meet him. As with any good manager, just by the way he teaches, makes you want to be a better student.

My first lesson with Justin went well. I have social anxiety so meeting new people is always a stressful experience for me. I was much more comfortable than expected and learned a lot. I definitely recommend Justin if you are looking for lessons in any of the areas he offers.

I was impressed with my daughter's first lesson! Justin was very personable with her and helped her get over her nervousness. He was also very knowledgeable and evaluated her range and which way would be best to teach her. My daughter loved it, and is looking forward to learning more!

Justin is very knowledgeable, patient and charismatic. I am just getting back into lessons as an adult and I’m so glad I decided to go this route instead of teaching myself online. Highly recommend!

Justin has been great. My son has progressed faster than I did when I was his age. Also he has begun composing and Justin has helped him with that too as well as music theory. A lot to fit in in six months!

Justin is a brilliant piano teacher. He is very engaging in his lessons and you can always be sure to learn and improve. Justin is flexible to both what you know and what you need improvement on and will quickly stretch to fortify your musical ability. He is never without a smile and never negatively criticizes. I would recommend him for any new students that are looking to learn or improve in piano.

Justin was very friendly and encouraging. We only had half an hour so we discussed the audition piece, warmed up, and focused on some of the trouble spots to see if the song I chose was right for my voice. If your looking for musical theatre assistance, he gives very good advice.

Justin is the best vocal teacher one could ask for. I always have a great time with him. He really cares about your progress and will try just about anything to get you to improve. He moved away from my location, and no other vocal teacher I've been with since has matched his quality.

Justin is a great piano teacher

My 6 year old has piano lessons with Justin. He enjoys his lessons and I'm a proud mother when I listen to him play. My son is a little talker but Justin is always kind, very patient, and uses relatable examples for him to better understand. He encourages which motivates my son to want to practice more. He is also very polite, never without a friendly smile, and without a doubt loves teaching music. I hope Justin continues teaching music by the time my now 1 year old is old enough to take lessons. My family truly appreciates him.

Excellent Teacher

Justin is a very reliable teacher. My children has been taking singing and piano lessons from him for about 6 months. Both kids improved a lot in skills, and they like him very very much!

I think Justin is a great instructor with this 9 year old child. Even though she cannot give him a foundation with which to establish what type of music to train toward, he is finding ways to educate her anyway. My highest rating and greatest compliments to this instructor.
