Gerard O.
I am 4 or 5 lessons in with Jared and I am truly and entirely thrilled with the progress I am seeing and the depth of guitar knowledge I have gained. Jared has a way of teaching that not only allows for actually playing right away but learning the foundations of knowing the guitar and music. I can see that this allows for not just playing "songs" but making music of my own. This is the freedom of "knowing" the guitar.
Alex
Headline: Jared is amazing teacher.
Jared has excellent knowledge of music foundations and music theory.
Knows styles and genres, knows not only how to play but create too... And how this style was born.
He helps to build habit to do things right - I'm talking about technique - or, in other words - how to use your hands!
Same time he's extremely patient.

I'd like to recommend Jared for everyone who want's to learn play guitar (don't look at your age), his teaching approach works great, because he is teaching you and adjust classes for you.
Tom
Jared is real patient and easy to learn from, he keeps things simple and makes sure you understand.

I chose Teri because when I looked at her profile, it screamed "TEACHER!" I've only had one lesson but I am pretty sure my instinct was on-point. Looking forward to the next lesson!

Wendy
Liza is extremely flexible and patient. She has tailored each lesson to my specific needs and has given me tools I needed to make me a better harp player. She chooses pieces that challenge me and has allowed me to chose from several different pieces/styles that I would enjoy learning, too. If I had to miss a lesson for some reason she went above-and-beyond to accommodate a make-up lesson. She has always been very encouraging and I have loved having her has my harp teacher! --Olivia (14 years old)
Jesscia S.
Liza is a wonderful and dedicated teacher. She his young, smart, patient and it is abvious to us that she cares and loves teaching harp. In the last few years, my daughter have had several teachers through out her piano and harp lessons, and I never seen her so excited before and after the her music lesson. She has been inspired and highly motivated from the first moment that she met Liza.

In beginner music theory classes, students can expect to learn the fundamentals of note reading, including pitch on treble and bass staves, basic time signatures and rhythm, intervals, chords, major scales and chords. Intermediate classes will involve the circle of fifths and major and minor key signatures, minor, diminished, and augmented chords, inversions, and basic chord progression analysis. In advanced classes, students will learn concepts such as extended harmony chords, secondary chords, more advanced analyses, modes, and special scales. Regardless of a student's level, class material will be geared toward his or her particular needs and goals.

"I am currently learning music fundamentals. I'm most definitely enjoying the course as it is very engaging and so enriched with the appropriate information needed to better my knowledge of the fundamentals of music. Each session has a perfect balance of both education through lecture and through the constructive criticism provided after singing and playing the piano during the lesson."

"I studied music theory with Brad my senior year of high school, and it was the best decision I could have made! Brad fully prepared me for college-level theory at a conservatory, and I have excelled as a performer because of the great theory background Brad provided me with. He knows music theory inside and out, and he is able to adapt his teaching skills for any student. Thanks for all your help, Brad!
