Marty has a wonderful energy about her and her teaching style was very helpful to me. We worked on my range, tone, and various techniques to open up and improve the voice which definitely helped! I saw improvements in less than 5 weeks (1 lesson per week) and her personalized booklet helped keep me on track! She's fantastic.

I went to Marty for voice lessons, initially - I had never taken any before, and I wanted to grow in improving my singing voice. I did have about 10 years of instruction in classical piano before my 20's, however, and after a number of voice lessons with Marty, I asked if she would also help me learn more improvisation on the piano (which is something I had only learned a little of in my years of piano lessons). It was a real treat to get to a place where I could both play and sing at the same time with her help - and comfortably! She was so fun to work with, and I really appreciate her perspective on music, and her clear enjoyment of it. Marty helped rekindle a love for music in me that had been pushed aside for awhile, in the midst of my life as a busy mom. To top it off, I found out near the end of our season of lessons together that she is also an excellent calligrapher, and that she offered lessons for that too - which is something else I wanted to learn. She helped get me started with that as well. I would recommend Marty to a friend for any of these three categories of lessons. She is knowledgeable, inspiring, and a lot of fun to learn from! I look forward to taking from her again in the future.

Marty is amazing. She helped find my voice and sing to my new wife. Her vast knowledge in music is amazing. My wife and sister will also be taking lessons from her. Worth every penny. Youd be lucky to have her as your teacher.

Lynn was so helpful in aiding me to complete a project I have been wanting to complete. She went at my speed (sometimes slow, sometimes hasty) and helped me with techniques I had no idea about and others I just did not know how to do well. I was working on a portrait of a young girl in a dress and she helped me create the pleats in the dress and work on the girl's complextion and hair. As a hobby painter, I am very pleased with my final product which I am going to give as a gift with confidence!

Lynn is a great teacher. She has wonderful style to adapt the lesson to the level and interest of the student while continuing to achieve the planned results. She ask me each lesson what I want to achieve today with suggestions of things to consider. I highly recommend Lynn for lessons.

Lynn is very knowledgable about many aspects of art. She has an incredible ability to relate the student (Me) and how I want to learn. Lynn is very personable and offers great advice and insight to the drawings that I want to learn to create. I highly recommend her to other students interested in improving their artistic capabilities.

I'm a total novice and Blake is very patient and doesn't mind explaining things more than once. After one lesson, I feel like I can start putting what I learned to use already.

I have taken Both A Photography and an Adobe Photoshop Class from Blake.
Blake is Extensively Knowledgeable and Compassionate about what He Teaches I may go into the class with a misunderstanding of a particular Subject or Topic but close with a Reassurance and Confidence in both Myself and the Subject; That is because Blake will not stop until He is assured I know the Amswer. I would Highly Recommend Blake To Anyone Who is Looking to Further Their Knowledge And Education With Great Appeciation and Grattitude, Ellen S

Hilda has me learning the finer points first: pronunciation and the alphabet. It's certainly tricky for a 39 year old brain to learn a completely new language but Hilda makes it fun and I am really enjoying our lessons.

Megan was both professional and kind - clearly knows the subject well. I thought the approach to discuss the pillars of the content was a great idea and I am looking forward to the next lesson.

I made a last minute lesson with Megan as I panicked about a university project that I was in no way prepared for. She is a calming and professional energy that guides you along the first few movements. At the end of the class she summed up what the next steps would be, making sure to set me up for success. I will definitely be signing up again!

Megan was great . We did a "group " lesson with my 90 year old mother who has painted her whole life, but has not in the past 5 or so years along with my 7 year old daughter who loves art. A great experience for granddaughter and grandmother to bond.

Highly recommend! Sharron is very talented and encompasses many different skills in the arts. Classes were always enjoyable - I learned and most importantly had a lot of fun! I appreciated how personable she was and feel more confident in my painting skills.

Sharron was an awesome instructor!!! She was very professional. She showed up early to set up for my daughter's paint and sip party. Sharron gave very detailed descriptions to help guide the amateur artists. Everyone enjoyed the personal feedback that was given. Sharron made our party a huge success. I would definitely recommend her services.
