Working with kids requires the ability to use analogies and really understand the child that you are working with. Our experience with Adam has convinced me that he posses those qualities. He is also punctual and consistent. As the guy footing the bill, I appreciate.
We plan on continuing our relationship with Adam.

I've taken several lessons with Jason and highly recommend him! He is very patient, easy going, and goes at the student's pace. He's a great guitar player and he will work with you to achieve your goal. I leave each lesson learning a few new songs.

Jason is a great teacher, very knowledgeable and patient. I don't have any musical background whatsoever, but he quickly got me started learning to play banjo and answered all my questions. I highly recommend this teacher.

We were new to the whole online, private lesson world and only tried as a test for our 10 yr-old son. He has now been working with Jason for several months now and shows no signs of stopping. Our son is progressing, has gained confidence and still seems to have fun. Jason is on time and if you cannot make a lesson he is flexible in rescheduling if given some notice. Finally, I would be remiss if I didn't mention how much Jason packs into his lessons without overwhelming the student. We highly recommend him!

I have taken piano from Susan for 6 months now and have enjoyed everything about our online lessons. Susan is super gifted not only as a pianist, but also as a teacher who can make you feel good about yourself after the lesson has just flown by. Susan's pleasant personality and calm demeanor are an added bonus. I know whoever considers Susan as a teacher will not be disappointed and in fact will be ultimately delighted.

Awesome Teacher

Susan, you are a great piano teacher and I am so glad that my son's first piano lessons were with you! He really enjoys it and you, but unfortunately we have fallen on some unforeseen financial difficulties in the last couple of week and I am not sure that we can continue lessons until things get better for us. I am very disappointed and I know Steele is as well. Take good care and thank you for showing us that this is something we should pursue in the future!Penney

Great experience

She did a wonderful job teaching Tara. Tara's viola technique really improved this year thanks to Dorothy's patience and hard work. Dorothy never missed a lesson and always came prepared for the next challenge. I must admit that I was hesitant to find a teacher using an on-line service but, Ihave been extremely pleased with our instructor and will miss Dorothy's guidance in our viola lessons.

Feedback for Dorothy

Dorothy has fabulous teacher. She is easy to learn from and doesnt get anoyed when you dont get things on the first try. This is great because as an adult I dont learn as quickly.Also, I am a college student (age 20) and she works with my school and work schedules. I really cant say how pleased I am with the quality of her teaching.

Thank you for what you have done for Mechelle so far. She enjoys coming to lessons and feels very comfortable working with you. And it's nice to know that she's getting the attention and help that she needs to be successful in learning the viola.
