For someone who has never taken a private music lesson before I able to relax and begin learning about music literacy and music theory by Isaiah's ability to express and articulate the fundamentals of guitar in a simplified way. It was rewarding to leave the lesson with new techniques to practice and have fun with.
Amara K.
Terrific. Great with kids
Katie D.
We have a kid that has major anxiety issues, quit piano after a couple of years of learning nothing, and didn't want to play a musical instrument for the rest of her life. She was forced to take an instrument in school, and ended up borrowing my (older than I'd like to admit) flute. We searched for a teacher that "got" anxiety kids, and found Isaiah. In less than a year, my daughter is better on flute than I was after taking years of lessons. She adores Isaiah, and was so good after only playing for couple of months last year that she ended up playing a duet for the whole school at the winter concert. This was from the kid who wanted to change schools rather than take mandatory band class. He's an amazing teacher.

"Ive had a terrific multi year set of lessons w Tony and he is flexible, patient, experienced and teaches where ‘I’m at’ not where a lesson book would rule or dictate.

Tony often hears things in my tone and technique that he then works into my lessons.

He can prepare a plan or cover what you want: he seems to enjoy the experience of teaching. But if you want to improve, Tony will help you get where you want to go"
