We all have different learning styles - auditory, visual, tactile, relational, etc. Classroom lecture-style learning is not effective for most students. We will find your learning style, and adapt the material to make it approachable and easy to learn.

Aaron is very knowledgeable and has excellent technique. He is consistent but kind in his feedback and gives praise without patronizing his student. A true professional.

Old dog learning a new trick

I'm a 58 year old complete novice. Aaron has been very patient and doesn't seem to mind starting from scratch. Every time we come to the end of the lesson I have something new, and wish I had more time.

Learning the Ins and Outs of Guitar Playing

I must say that I am please with Jamie's technique and patience with me. Jamie is very knowledgable and shares some of his secrets (not shortcuts mind you) that help in learning to master the acoustic guitar. He leaves you with valuable lessons and exercises that can do nothing but improve on how you play the guitar. I'm looking forward to continuing my lessons with Jamie.

Kevin had been my teacher for piano and music composition until I left Memphis. As a person, Kevin is very kind. He has naturally gentle personality. As a music teacher, he is knowledgeable and patient, with great musicmanship and sincere love of music. He points out where I could do better, but never criticize. He helped me improving my piano playing to a higher level of techniques and musicality. I learned a whole lot from him also on music theory and composition. The lessons were both pleasurable and rewarding. I really miss the lessons with him and will highly recommend him to anyone.

Kevin is great. He is very patient, understanding, friendly and very kind. He is and was always willing to work with my schedule and always had good feedback. He never made me feel like I was doing things wrong. He always was very encouraging. I can't wait to take classes again with him. thanks!

Fun first lesson...Natalie's enthusiasm filtered right through the screen to me, and the energy provided my "get away" from the rigors of the day. She was organized and followed up to make sure all my homework was sent correct digitally. Looking forward to my next lesson

What a terrible experience. I signed up for lessons for my wife from Brett as a gift because he listed times that would work for my wife given that we have a young daughter, and have a hard time making time for lessons. Brett told us 3 days before the lesson that the time wouldn't work, then simply never showed for the rescheduled first lesson. Worse, he simply refused to do scheduling via email (he would leave voicemails and failed to return my wife's call when she called back as they were playing phone tag), and then told us he had another commitment during the slot we had supposedly reserved for him. Worse, he failed to update the site as he continually cancelled lessons and never showed up for scheduled times. I now have a huge hassle of getting a refund on the money I paid for lessons as opposed to a lovely gift for my wife. Life's too short and we're too busy for such an awful experience.

Great teacher for my young daughter

Brett has been a great teacher for my 5 year old daughter. She is just learning the basics of piano and Brett has been great at expanding her skill sets. She really enjoys practicing with him and actually looks forward to when he comes over every week!

I wish I could have continued my lessons. Hopefully I'll be able to continue this in the future, but wanted to say that Kenya is a very kind and patient teacher, and I hope to be able to take lessons from her again when the time comes. I really liked her approach to teaching an old dog like myself.

Kenya is a great teacher. She is very encouraging and has a good read on my 8 and 5 yr olds so as to not push too much but is by no means a push over. I like her soft spoken firm style.
