Daniel was very knowledgeable, very patient with my 9 year old and taught at her pace. The environment was clean and quiet and conducive for learning. We both thoroughly enjoyed the experience. Would recommend to anyone!

This is one of the most dedicated musicians I've ever met. He taught me so much more than just technique or tricks or any flashy things. He taught me music step by step and how to apply it not only to singing but to any instrument. Definitely give this guy a try if you're serious about music and singing.

Kelvin was a nice guy but not very good at listening. You can tell he is probably good at SEO, but is more geared towards giving multiple lessons, because he will not answer any questions if its not in the order he is teaching. Being a teacher myself, you have to LISTEN to the person paying for the lesson. You should not tell a paying customer that you wont answer a question because you will get to that at a later time in a different lesson. Some people, like myself understand many aspects of SEO already, and just need to ask some questions to learn new things to try.

Kelvin did give me a couple very good tips I will implement.

You could be a very good teacher my friend, just listen more

Kelvin is a very patient teacher! I knew absolutely nothing about mandolin or music and Kelvin has helped with that. I have a long way to go but, with Kelvins help I believe I can get there!
I highly recommend Kelvin!!!!!

My son was new guitar player, he has now had several lessons with John. We have seen his skills grown exponentially. John really connects with him and keeps him engaged. He has taught him soo much in such a short span of time. John is a fantastic teacher!

John seems to customize his lesson to you. He teaches the basic, and theory behind why these chords go together and helps you learn the music you are interested in. He goes at a slow pace, so that you have time to practice and really pick up what he is showing you

Colin is a great instructor, and has always kept lessons fun and enjoyable! He teaches efficiently and is never afraid to throw in some funny analogies or anecdotes to keep it relaxing. His communication is fantastic, and he'll always talk to you about future conflicts. Colin helped me get into saxophone playing, and has been amazingly helpful throughout all of his lessons. He has helped me improve greatly on improvisation and technical skill, and overall has been a huge inspiration for my playing!

Surfing · In studio
Colin is the best surf instructor I have ever had! He asked me to explain my goals and developed a teaching approach based on what I wanted to be able to do on the water.

People who are very good at something are rarely also very good at teaching, but Colin is a welcome exception! I look forward to surfing with him this summer.

James and I worked together for 4 months at an elementary school tutoring 3-5 graders in math and english. James is professional, intelligent, and creative. It was a pleasure working with him. He cares very much for the youth in our community.
We've stayed in touch via email and are developing a friendship I hope lasts a life time. He is good people.

James is an excellent instructor that has tremendous amount of patience with the most difficult students. He is also very skillful in academics especially English and language arts. He has the unquie ability to break the assignment or steps down for the student to learn on his/her individual level! A great pleasure to work beside him !
