Jason is a professional and exceptional.

With his ability to teach guitar, drums, keyboard, and also songwriting, my hyper 5 year old is never board. I'm not interested right now in pushing one instrument over the other. I just want her to be "exposed" to different instruments, develop an ear for music, see how she can take her lyrics (budding songwriter, with her singing her day all the time), and enhance it with an instrument. Jason can do all that, because he has the knowledge, but he's also very FLEXIBLE and can easily transition from one insturment and teaching method to another, depending on where a young student's mind and interests take them in any given moment.

Learning to play traditionally/classically, slowly, methodically, step-by-step, learning formal music theory, doing drills and so forth is awesome, and Jason can do that. However, if you want to learn to play for fun, and begin jamming sooner than later...he's definately your man.

Brad is an extraordinary instructor he has immense patience and remarkable depth of experience. He has taken impossible projects and taught me how to turn them into gold. He has also expanded my understanding of the incredible options to take good shots into outstanding shots with simple tools and techniques in post processing that I never realized were available. Great experience that I plan to continue.

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.
