I have two passions in life: Music and helping others. Teaching music is the best of both worlds for me. My goal with music has always been to inspire others the way other great musicians have inspired me. I believe music lessons can benefit everyone in someway. Music is a combination of art and math and is a positive way for anyone to express themselves. Can you imagine a world without it? How boring and monotonous!

Taylor is a great teacher, very patient and shows maturity way beyond his age. All in all a very pleasant and fun experience.

My five years old daughter and I love Taylor! He is very patient while teaching her the guitar and give her some fun things to do when it is my time to learn the drums! Taylor makes the learning process easy and really fun. We always look forward our next lesson! :-) Thanks Taylor!

Patient and helpful

Taylor teaches my 5-year-old son, and he's really great. Very patient and encouraging, while keeping things fun for him. Five stars all the way!
