DeShawn S.
I really enjoyed my 1st meeting with Paul. He helped me to feel confident about learning to play the saxophone. I look forward to my next lesson.
Tori
Paul is so great! I'm an adult learning the alto saxophone with almost no prior music experience. He is patient with my many questions, very encouraging, highly skilled (as a musician and instructor), and fun to be around! The majority of our lessons are online and that is working well too.

Dr. S. believes that great playing is derived from great technique. Technique is an essential part of becoming a successful musician. Dr. S. helps her students perfect their technical abilities allowing them to explore vast musical repertoire.

Musicality is what brings music to life. Every musician has their own unique ideas that are expressed through their playing. Dr. S. helps her students develop their natural creative instincts and convey their ideas through their music.

Learning how to play music is fun and rewarding, however it also requires a great deal of self discipline. Practicing your instrument consistently is necessary to become a successful musician. Music is a fun way to learn the value of hard work and self discipline for students of all ages.

Shannon has worked with me for years, as my nutrition/fitness/strength trainer and my private music instructor! I love her! She is so patient, kind and knowledgeable. She cares and only wants to help me be better at everything I do! And she is always there to help even between sessions. She's all in!

Sharon takes time to listen to you and cares about you as a person as much as a student.
She has been knowledgeable on any instrument I have done lessons on (flute, clarinet, alto sax, cello, and violin).

Shannon has been my triathlon coach and conditioning trainer for 3 years and I couldn't be more pleased. My racing times continue to improve, as I continue to aim for longer races. I just completed my first Half Ironman (70.3 miles)! I have never been injured in her care. She really knows what she's doing.

Kayla Johnsen
I have been fortunate enough to be taught by Mrs. Till for the last two years, and I can safely say that she is the best teacher I have ever had. She is very responsive and open to her students with any questions we may have, and she is connected and involved in the Deaf community and helps us be comfortable getting involved as well. She is able to teach ASL in such a way that makes students truly invested in learning, and this level of interest she invokes in her students has led her to produce many fluent signers, countless numbers of whom have gone on to pursue ASL in college and make it their profession. She has changed so many lives, and not only in people’s career paths, but also by forming personal connections with so many of her students. When she taught in school, her classroom was a safe place for so many kids who felt like they had nowhere else to go, and she became a motherly figure and support system for so many of us. I know that she will bring this kindness with her wherever she goes and to whomever she helps next, and I hope they appreciate what an incredible person and teacher they have been lucky enough to find in her.
Tristan
Fundamentally changed my understanding of the language, I would not be anywhere close to where I am now without her help! Mrs. Till has an incredible fundamental understanding of the language, and can help you improve leagues regardless of your skill level.
Sarah
Mrs. Till is an incredible teacher that works hard with her students to excel at learning sign language. She pushed me to do better than I ever thought I could. She is a great leader, teacher, and helper. I wish I could’ve taken more classes with her!

"Love taking tap with Kristen! What I love about her is that she meets you where you need to be met and change her approach to teaching a step or skill so that it makes sense to you. If you are an adult beginner, she makes everything really assessable- especially if you don’t have any dance experience. You might go into your first lesson or class nervous, but by the end you’ll have learned how to tap and feel at ease and excited for your next class! Her class is the highlight of my week!"

"Dennis Johnson is extremely passionate and knowledgable about every topic relating to acting and voiceovers. His classes are friendly, warm, funny, inviting and are always very positive. Although his classes may be challenging, he focusses on preparing his students for the real world and is passionate about putting his student's best foot forward. A few things he covers in classes are improvisation, analyzing monologues and analyzing film. He is reliable and flexible with busy schedules and makes an effort to teach life lessons as well. I feel extremely lucky to have found him and to have access to his classes and film and voice over editing skills. He is a gem."

"Working with Dennis has been incredibly beneficial to my growth as an actor. His ability to dissect a scene, work through the nuances of the character, and the sub-text and communicate this on camera with techniques that set you above the amateur actor, has helped me tremendously and opened up not only opportunities but my confidence as well. Dennis approaches the actor as a whole and understands there are parts to this whole and each part—the body, the speech, the mind—is just as important as the next. I wouldn't be the actor I am today if it weren't for Dennis."

"Shelley is one of the most dedicated coaches I have ever worked with. My name doesn't get lost amongst her other students. When it's time for class, she not only is ready to go with a lesson plan, but it's abundantly clear she spends her own time outside of class prepping for me with scripts and feedback on any work I sent her during the week. After a year of being her student, I have learned so much technique and range. She is very well educated, knows her craft immensely, and her chemistry and dedication was apparent from the start. I've truly never had a coach as involved and diligent as her."
