Paul is one of the greatest music teachers there could be. I've studied with him for about two years -- my skill and understanding have really developed. He's a great player and has a million ways to explain things so if you don't get it one way, there's always another approach.

We decided to chose Brian for my teenage daughter's beginning guitar lessons due to his willingness to teach her the type of songs that she wanted. Right away he connected with her and her music. He taught her the theory behind playing guitar as well as teaching her the tricks and skills of how to play the guitar. His practices were enjoyable and not just rote. She learned very quickly and therefore stayed excited about learning. Brian was always very complementary and encouraging. Brian also helped us buy useful equipment like a tuner, etc. She always felt safe and comfortable. We would highly recommend Brian as a guitar teacher.

Debbie Carter is an amazing vocal teacher. She has a great attitude and is very patient. She made me feel welcomed and comfortable the minute I walked into the room. She has given me advice on how to use and care for my voice and has made me feel more comfortable with singing high notes (those can be scary!). She is very punctual and starts and ends classes on time. I have had a very positive experience with her and hope to continue with classes. Thank you, Debbie for your time, teachings, and wisdom!

Marquita Waters is by far one of the best vocal instructors around. Although her and I are used to playing different genres of music, Marquita is able to adapt to any style to benefit the performer. Most importantly, Marquita teaches the singer how to put on a performance and captivate the audience's attention. Highly recommended.

Three years ago Lou started as my bass teacher and within a short period of time became my children’s music instructor and has remained our family friend. We all enjoy having him as our teacher but we also enjoy our time together debating music theory etc. Most notable for me is the fact that I have had several music teacher’s in the past, trying various instruments but Lou is the one that has lasted. My son has found his passion in guitar and my daughter enjoys her piano, even though she will never admit it. We are thankful for the joy Lou has brought our family and wholeheartedly recommend him to your family.

Chris is an amazing teacher. He really doesn’t like to mess around. Learning how to play the guitar is not an easy task at all, but after just a few lessons with Chris I can guarantee that you’ll feel more confident in your ability.

Thomas is a great piano teacher who is incredibly professional, patient and helpful. He is fantastic at noticing deficiencies in your playing and is able to get you to fix them without ever being overbearing or too harsh. He's incredibly patient, knowledgeable and incredibly flexible in his schedule. There were times when I had to change my lesson times and he always made sure to find time for us to get our lesson in. Thomas offers the best lessons for the best price! Whether you're a casual player or looking to help improve your chops, Thomas should be your first choice.

Michael, from my first lesson was so attentive to what I wanted to learn. Kind of in passing, I told him that I loved to sing but was afraid to so he really coaxed me to sing along to all the guitar songs I was learning (I really do not think that any other guitar teacher would have bothered...like "not my job". But, not Michael, he took that on as his job because he recognized that it was important to me). Likewise, when I would show an interest in a particular type of music (i.e. I like acoustic and more mellow, verging on country even), he found songs like that for me and he taught me my songs I had picked even though I doubt that they would have been his picks. In summary, he wanted me to relate to and enjoy the music; the lessons are all about what I want to get out of them...with professional guidance along the way as well. The other thing I want to definitely mention is that, Michael is top-knotch, professional and KNOWS music. He encouraged me to not only learn songs to play but to understand the theory of the music in those songs. I feel very proficient in music theory after taking classes with Michael. I not only play the stuff but I "get it." I understand the technical theory involved. I really think that this is something not every guitar teacher brings to the table or encourages. Many just do not know it! With Michael, we can move from guitar to piano so that he can illustrate something about chords in a key or the difference between major, minor, dominant and diminished chords. Bottom line, I have fun during my lesson but I learn so much more than memorizing chord shapes on the guitar. And, when I play and sing a song...well, it really feels great! Honestly, he is the BEST! He just cares so much about you learning all you can regarding music and he knows how to teach it so that you get to understand what can at first seem so unfamiliar. Michael has the holistic approach. He makes music familiar, logical, relatable and, most of all, Enjoyable. As his student, thumbs-up!

Stefano is an amazing teacher with an incredible passion for music. His teaching ability is truly unique. He has a great personality with an uplifting attitude, and has a genuine sense of humor. After the first lesson, I instinctively knew I was going to reconnect with him and choose him as my drum teacher despite shopping around for prospective instructors. If you're looking to have a great time learning the drums look no further!

My daughter, Julia, has been working with Mark since we moved to California 3 years ago. Mark is extremely "patient, kind, knowledgable, dedicated and attentive", according to my daughter. Julia has grown into a strong pianist as she's worked with Mark while enjoying fun and enriching experiences at the same time rather than placing unneeded pressure on her. He has pushed her talent to its fullest extent, while giving her positive feedback. We are very thankful to have Mark as Julia's piano teacher.

Mike is an experienced musician and teacher. It is a pleasure to take lessons from him. He custom tailors his lessons on my interest and what I would like to learn. He has a wide variety of material to pull from and constants finds easier pieces to build into what I want to learn. Overall, Mike is a great guy, fantastic musician, and i would highly recommend him to anyone thinking to learn any bluegrass or blues.

The slow progression at school was the reason why I decided to put may daughter up with a private teacher, whom Linda seems to be the right fit. My daughter was never corrected for her fingering while playing the cello at school, until Linda did so. It took my daughter 6 months just to play 1 piece of music at school, let alone reading the music sheet for the cello comfortably. And she was the only cello student at school too! Linda is not only very knowledgeable musically, but also very talented as she plays many different instruments. Overall, very productive 1st class with Linda.

Highly recommend to anyone who is looking to have a professional career in the arts or to those seeking the fundamental techniques to a good and healthy singing voice!
