I have been taking flute lessons from Shannon for about six months now. I am an older beginning flute student. It has been great working with her. She places much importance on fundamentals, getting the embouchure right and developing a good tone. My progress is slow, but i feel that later i will not have to go back and unlearn things. She is also happy to let me include flute pieces i like in the lessons rather than doing only lesson books and the like.

Shannon tailors her teaching approach and lessons to the student. I am an older student who had limited music knowledge. I have thoroughly enjoyed my experience that is fulfilling a deferred and delayed childhood experience!

Kortnee is a fabulous teacher! She came into our home and taught my 9 and 11-year old daughters piano once a week. Both girls thrived and looked forward to their lessons. The progress they made in one year with Kortnee was impressive. We have moved out of state and the biggest regret is that we can't find another piano teacher like Kortnee. We miss her and her enthusiasm for teaching music. Best instructor ever!

Kortnee is amazing!!

I actually take both piano and flute from Kortnee. Her energy is contagious and she knows many styles of music. She is always ready to support what I want/need to do and can give me a tip within minutes that will help me forever. I can puzzle over a phrase or mood, and she will immediately "get it". She loves to see me have fun, and loves to help me over the rough spots.
HIGHLY RECOMMENDED!!

I swam and participated in water polo teams/clubs from my freshman year in high school through my senior year in college. I can help you work on your technique and endurance. I was a backstroker and free styler, but I have lots of experience in all styles. I can work with you as a beginner or if you want to improve your technique.

My son is a beginner at swimming so I wanted someone who would come to our house to teach him since he is familiar with our pool. I priced out some other programs and found that this was less expensive for a one on one instructor. Peter was on time and made my son comfortable prior to starting the lesson. It was a great experience and he is looking forward to continuing his swimming lessons.

Nicolas (9 years old) is a beginner/intermediate swimmer but did not know the fundamentals. Peter was very good and Nicolas had only good things to say - we have 5 total lessons at our house. This was the first lesson and Peter was on time and took the time to find out what Nicolas knew before starting the lesson. I would recommend him as a good teacher, especially if you want someone to come to your house to teach.

Andrew has done a great job teaching my 3.5-year-old son to swim. He has all the technical skills for teaching and is great interpersonally with kids-- very patient, enthusiastic, and encouraging with our little guy. He has also been extremely flexible and cooperative in scheduling times to work with our busy schedule. My son was a little reluctant to take any lessons when he started, but now keeps asking when he can have another lesson with Andrew! Andrew gets our highest recommendation.

"I took my kids to Miss Sherri because I kept hearing
how wonderful it was. I believe in early exposure to
music because they get so much out of it when they're
really little. And Sherri has a magical quality that
sparks their interest. Jack, 9, Andrew, 7 and my
daughter, Bailey, 6, are now clients of Shirley Grant,
a talent manager for Keisha Knight Pullian, who played
Rudy on 'The Cosby Show,' and Kathleen Herles, the
voice of 'Dora the Explorer.' Jack recently played the
lead in Running Rabbit Theater's production of 'The
Velveteen Rabbit' at the Two River Theater. We love
Miss Sherri!"
