Chas E.
My first lesson with Zach was great! 5 stars. He asked the right questions as to what aI am looking to do. And we quickly came up with a lesson plan that with the right amount of work in my part will get me headed in the right direction. Zach does a great job of making his students feel comfortable and good about their abilities.

Kareem is a wonderful teacher. He is very present during the lessons and clearly brings a wealth of teaching and playing experience, along with a love of music, to the table. He has an easy manner with students - I really appreciate this as my daughter was hesitant to take private lessons but she is enjoying them very much. Thank you Kareem!
Michael S.
Kareem is superb. Under his tutelage I am certain I will advance quickly from my current skill set. I'm more convinced than ever that I can become a real musician. His assignments require the commitment that I am willing to invest. I hope I will live up to his expectations.

Learn how music works! Keys, scales, modes, chords, etc.
I'll show you how to get specific feels, moods and emotions.

We start basic and go from there until you have a real working knowledge that can be used with any instrument or style of play. The studies that I use are a combination of taking songwriting structures and breaking them down so that they make sense to anyone. I teach chord progressions as well as scales and sometimes go a bit off the deep end when I feel students are ready.

"I am quite pleased with Joshua's growth thus far! After playing his bass guitar with a start up teacher for 3 years, Joshua was ready for more. He needed someone new to push him to the next level. Not only is Damien perfecting Joshua's skills, but is introducing Joshua to music composition. I absolutely LOVE THAT!!! Thank you Damien because every time we visit, Joshua leaves with something new! FABULOUS INSTRUCTOR!!!"

"Truly "wonderful"

My two children, an 8 year old boy and 6 year old girl, have been taking paino lessons from Farobag since March 2013. We weren't sure how my son, being all about typical "boy" things would be with paino lessons, however, he has done amazing. I was raised with piano, in that it helps to further coordinate the brains development and how it processes information generally speaking. I can only say that my children cannot appear to take their shoes off as quick as they'd like at the start of each piano lesson. I wanted to find a teacher who would be able to truly reach and further develop my children's musical apptitude to learning. Farobag has truly done that. I almost hesitate to share this information, because my husband and I feel like Farobag is our little secret, that if word gets out we won't be able to get lessons when we want them. However, it is that which we know other parents would love to find for their children and adults. I know he teaches other instruments as well. As a Mom, I truly couldn't be happier. My husband, not having the same upbringing I did with music, wasn't quite sure about piano lessons. However, even he is truly amazed at how much they have learned as well as how eager they are to deomonstrate it. He has seen how much of a benefit it has been for our children."

"Jeff Stetson is & has been my #1 recommendation to learn to play music for 20+ years!

Jeff was probably the best thing to happen to me as a teenager. I took bass lessons from Jeff for 5 years & in that time, my world of music expanded as did my skills in playing music. My lessons with Jeff prepared me well enough to enter into college level music courses. If I had an audition, Jeff zeroed in on what I needed to know & helped me get the gig. His study techniques work, if you work em'! He will show you what you want & you will get a whole lot more. Ask him about the Louie Louie/Wild Thing thread & you will get the history & learn to play R-n-R, the Blues, R.n.B, Funk. & the foundations of Jazz. All levels, all styles, Jeff Stetson is my #1 recommendation for learning music. Thanks Jeff, I am positive you helped keep me out of trouble & possibly jail too."
