Waldemar is the best guitar teacher, ever!!! I've improved so much since I started taking lessons from him. He's kind and patient, clear when explaining/teaching, and super talented. I love that he's a professional musician and producer, so he definitely knows what he's doing. AND, he's bilingual!!! I've been taking one-on-one lessons in his studio, and some online lessons as well -which work really well, too-, in Spanish!

Waldemar es el mejor maestro de guitarra!!! He mejorado muchísimo desde que comencé a tomar clases con él. Es un maestro amable y paciente, muy claro al explicar, y muy talentoso.

Super Knowledgable. Psyched to learn more.
Dennis
Derek is a very knowledgable instructor, easy to talk to, and I found his teaching technique is very motivating. He set realistic practice goals for the next session, which will require me to do my part, but that's the reason we show up, to learn how to play a musical instrument.
I highly recommend him.

Derek was very helpful! No time was wasted! Awesome 1st lesson!

Private Ukulele Teacher

The Uke is such a unique and fun instrument to play. Plus, it is probably the most accessible instrument I have ever taught. It’s great for those who can’t quite get the hang of guitar. It helps build strength and rhythm that carries over directly to the guitar and other stringed instruments.
One of my favorite things to do is play duets with students, and the ukulele makes for some interesting pairings of instruments.

David is the best and the sweetest piano teacher we have ever have. He is so patient, kind, caring and creative in his teaching method.

My 5 year old has a little autism symptom so she's very easy to get distracted. Yet we have great fun time in every class with him. His class worth 20 min driving there and 20 min driving back, using toll road!

David has been so amazing with out 9 year old daughter. We have gone to him for over 2 years and she has come so far with her skills! He has so much patience. He's so kind and wonderful with kids. We were recommended by a friend and now we recommend him! He's high in demand for sure! We are sad we can't use him anymore due to scheduling issues. His prices are better than others too!
Colin
Quickly contextualized my needs as a student, and got me familiar with components and techniques of composition. The goal was to be able to help me more easily communicate ideas and designs to audio engineers at a company I work at. There has been a very observable benefit to this in the expedience of discussions, and fidelity of concept being engineered.

"One day, I decided to learn ukulele by myself but I became quickly stuck. I found Carolyn on this website and then went to her place to take my first lesson. Carolyn is super sweet; very welcoming, smiling, fun to work with. She is very positive and gives great feedbacks all the time! I learnt a lot during our session!! At some point, we sat at her piano to talk about notes and keys: it was very interesting to switch to another instrument. In addition, her place has very harmonious vibes: when I left I felt so much better!!! I definitely recommend Carolyn for music lessons! And I look forward to our next ukulele lesson!"
