Jason has been working with my almost 12 year old for several months now. We started with the ukulele and then moved on to the guitar a few months later. Jason is always very open to our suggestions and feedback on our son's progress and makes any adjustments necessary to keep him engaged. Additionally, Jason is always on time and if we need to make scheduling changes he does his best to work with us to accommodate.

If you are thinking of trying the ukulele or guitar, then connect with Jason. I think that no matter your skill level he will be able to keep you engaged, excited and challenged.

Brad is just a great instructor who is very effective at using technology to make the experience extremely easy and very productive. I wasn't sure how photography and light room lessons were going to work in the environment but it has been a great experience with just my first couple of lessons.
I wanted to learn how to make subtle adjustments to some of my favorite photos to bring out the detail and highlights that made the shot a favorite. Brad quickly walked me through seemingly complex edits which were very easy to learn and made my pictures really pop.
I love landscapes and animals and have fallen in love with past shots that I did not realize could be such improved pictures with just a little help from Lightroom.
Well worth the investment and I have received countless complements already on my new work.

Thanks Brad for taking me to the next level of enjoyment and satisfaction with a personal passion of mine.

I've always wanted to improve my Photoshop/Lightroom skills. As a matter of fact I've talked about it for over six months but just never seem to have the time. Enter, Bradley. After just one lesson my knowledge has improved and I am already using the skills learned through his instruction to make my photographs better. Bradley is thorough, patient and extremely knowledgeable. The classes flow easily and you can see how much he enjoys teaching.

Originally I was looking for an in-person class but taking the class online in many ways is easier. We are able to easily share each other's screen and there are no pesky interruptions from other classmates. Additionally, I am free to ask and receive an answer to any of my perceived silly questions.

I wholeheartedly endorse Bradley and recommend him as a first-class instructor.

Brad was an amazing instructor for myself and 10 and 11 year old daughters. His communication skills are impeccible and his approach spot on. After only one lesson, I have learned more about my camera and photography than in my whole life! We are so excited to continue our lessons with Brad!

Charis is brilliant. Her marvelous sense of humor, curiosity, and expertise with language, literature and the making of beautiful things, would make learning anything with her a pure delight, as well as a privilege. As it happens, she is a masterful writer, editor and expediter of creative dreams -in a genuinely original, even magical way- every time I see her, I find I've got five new ideas and my sense of reality feels enlivened and enlarged.

Our son is enjoying drawings lesson with Joe very much. Joe explains concepts very clearly and in an age appropriate manner. He is also great at applying our son's strong interest in video game characters to learning different aspects of drawing.

Gordon asked great on-boarding questions. Very personable. We are looking forward working with him more to learn specific techniques to use in novice photography.

Chinese was really tough for me...but Gordon made it a lot easier and helped me practice to be comfortable with the language. He puts a lot of effort into making sure you understand the material. If you don't, he'll go through it with you and try different methods until you do. I highly recommend him!
