Joel is clearly very passionate and well versed in the language and study of music, providing a solid foundation for anyone wanting to learn the dynamics of music and performance. He doesn’t just teach mechanics, he teaches you the how and the understanding so you come away with more than the knowledge of how to play a few songs. He tailors the curriculum and home practice around the student’s unique interests to blend enjoyment and knowledge in a way that keeps you excited about music!

My experience as an electric guitar student of Justin's is nothing short of perfect for what I was looking for. Justin has a great studio with everything you'd need and is very focused on ensuring he's helping me learn what I want, not some standard, boring, antiquated way of teaching. He's got a TON of accomplishments under his belt (music and otherwise, he is also an actor!) from which to draw experience from and share with students. Very professional, personable and contemporary - IMO a perfect teacher and I'd recommend him to anyone looking for lessons!
Saujan
Justin is an excellent vocal and music teacher overall, he's a friendly person and is very professional.

Highly recommend him!
Saujan
Justin is an awesomely cool person and a very skilled instructor. His singing techniques and practices not only work but also challenge you to do better each day.
Inside a fully functional studio, there’s just so much learning you can do.
Highly recommend!

Attacking the students aspirations and goals of their personal requests to the trainer, and getting to know the client and where they would like to see themselves in a limited time of training so the clients money and time isn't left in the mud! We will play and organize our curriculum through music and melody, with a counted rhythm to the beat we are attacking. Listening to our favorite songs is a good way to learn how to play an instrument, it gives a familiar count and sound that we can connect to! Music is simple but fun so our sessions will always revolve around repetitive lessons ,BPM , counting, rhythm, and listening to many many songs and playing them!

Corey is a fantastic drummer! Take advantage of time at home while learning new skills, and this is a great way to stay active and keep your energy up. Corey has been drumming for a very long time and has an excellent positive attitude, you can't miss!
Alex
A great experience! I have been learning with Corey for about two months, and am already improving. I am a guitar player with some basic drumming experience. I was looking to finally get to the next level so I could record my own drum beats (also drumming always looked like a lot of fun!), and Corey is helping me to achieve this. He is a talented drummer himself, and was able to quickly assess my playing level so we could start building on it. He has a great eye and ear for issues with my technique and always has an exercise to address them. In a short time I have experienced significant improvement, playing some more creative drum patterns, and am looking forward to continuing.
A lot of fun, very fulfilling, great instructor! Highly recommended!

Corey is an awesome drummer....truly knows the heart and soul of his craft! He's patient and kind...all around a cool dude! Check him out!

Ryan
I am really happy with my lessons with Carson. I have seen significant improvement since I started with him. He has extensive experience that most people can't give in regular drum lessons. Not only have I learned techniques for learning drums, but I have also learned a great deal about recording. I have also learned the basics of marimba, and xylophone as well which is not something that I thought I would be learning. I highly recommend this teacher!
Tina
Carson has a lot of patience, and a deep knowledge of drumming. This really helps me as a student, and I have made great progress since I started studying with him. He also utilizes recording in his teaching, so that I can track my progress.

"James is a reliable instructor. He always meets at the scheduled time, and instructs with patience and persistence. Our son has been a student for 8 or 9 years now, and likes Jame's style of teaching. Our son has learned many techniques for playing drums, starting with simple beats. James is well liked and respected. For 11 years James instructed our oldest son on the drums. When the boys started showing an interest in piano, we bought a keyboard for them, and James started teaching them the basics of piano.
Currently James instructs our youngest son on drums and keyboards - rotating each week.
When our son wants to go over something he's been learning at school in his Advanced Keyboarding class, James has been a great help in this area!"
