Chris is an excellent instructor!

My 7 yr. old took Drum lessons with Chris and has shown definite improvement over the past 6 wks. Chris set up a system where my son can play at his skill level yet learn something new at every session. He is also good at keeping my sons interest (tough to do with a 7 yr. old!) Overall, I would recommend Chris to anyone .

Learned a lot

Teresa is a teriffic teacher and takes a lot of pride in her work. She took her time with me and introduced me to a new way of delivery and breathing that helped with my speed and articulation. Teresa introduced new items to each lesson that made it a constant learning experience. Teresa is not only patient, but pleasant and I will be continuing my lessons with her this summer for my "tune up".

If you want to learn guitar, this is your guy.

As a guitar player with already some years of experience, Keith was able to guide me in a way that others could not. With his friendly attitude and vast knowledge of the instrument, I was immediately hooked on wanting to learn all I could and Keith is gladly accompanying me on the journey. Beginner or advanced this is the teacher for you.

What a great teacher!

Keith Silliman is a talented musician who meets me where I am at as an adult learner of piano. He is magically able to help me play music rather than just notes.

my piano teacher Keith S. makes learning piano fun.

My piano teacher has a relaxed approach that makes our lessons comfortable. He creates an environment that makes me feel at ease and able to enjoy learning piano. We focus on timing and rhythmn patterns and he will sometimes play the same notes next to me so I can see his hand position and learn when I would change to accommodate my playing the piece. Keith is a wonderful teacher and I appreciate his comments and direction.

Alex M. Rochester, NY

About Alex

At 23 years of age, I feel I have come a long way with my passion for music. From southern Louisiana, I began my involvement in music by taking piano lessons at the age of 5. I began trumpet studies in my school bands starting at the age of 10. I have won numerous music awards and am pursuing a career in orchestral trumpet performance. I love sharing my knowledge with students and inspiring them to become better musicians. I have given trumpet lessons and clinics at various K-12 schools around Louisiana while studying music education at Loyola University New Orleans. I recently moved to Rochester, NY, to pursue my degree of Master of Music Performance and Literature at the Eastman School of Music, studying under James Thompson.
