We chose Emo to work with my 11 year old daughter via Skype for voice lessons. She was really nervous to have her very first voice lesson over Skype, and with a stranger, but Emo quickly put her at ease. He’s patient, encouraging, positive, and also really uses the 30 minutes fully. He wasn’t the cheapest vocal coach to respond to my thumbtack but he really knows what he’s doing and maximizes the 30 minute lesson. My daughter is really happy with him as her teacher and so am I!

Sid gave guitar lessons to my daughter (14). He was recommended to us by a friend who has a 12 year old son that Sid taught. He is a great teacher and I can tell he is good at relating to kids of all ages. It is obvious, Sid has an appreciation and a passion for music and I would highly recommend him to anyone!

Banjo lessons with Eddie have been spectacular! He's very knowledgeable and can always explain what I might be having problems with. I leave each lesson not being able to wait to go home and practice. I can't wait for my lesson next week!

I have a five-year-old boy taking piano lessons and a seven-year-old girl taking guitar lessons. They love Annette, and they take pride in showing off their developing skills, which, I believe, is a testament to strong teaching and an encouraging environment.

Cosima is a very personable and knowledgeable vocal coach. Her demeanor is comforting yet encouraging when working through those "rough notes". In the short time we have been taking lessons from her, she has given my son much needed confidence to navigate his changing voice. We are very happy to have found Cosima!

My son Alexander has been taking guitar lessons from Seth for about 6 months now. He finally looks forward to his lessons. As parents, it was really important to us to have someone our son could connect with, and be inspired by. Seth has been the perfect match for us. Alexander says "He's a great player, great mentor, and all around awesome guy! He's taught me some cool techniques that I never knew before" We're excited to have him help our son unlock all of his musical potential. You Rock Seth!

My son has taken guitar lessons from Patrick for over the past 5 years. During that time my son has developed such an ear for music, an appreciation for the guitar whether it be acoustic or electric, and has gained a tremendous amount of self confidence! Because he can really start jammin! Patrick has been an integral part of shaping the artistic & creative talents that come with learning an musical instrument! My son has definitely gained so much more than he even realizes over the course of those years! Thanks for help in shaping my son!!!

Davey is a great teacher! He really got to know our daughter and tailors her lessons to best suit her. He teaches her how to read music while also giving her a chance to have fun with her guitar. Her lesson is the perfect balance of reading music and practicing from her book along with fun jam sessions with Davey.

Bobby John has been very responsive regarding availability, responding to texts and phone calls very quickly. He was able to accomodate my request for evening lessons. At my first lesson he was very personable, making me feel at ease for my first music lesson ever (at age 51). We discussed my goals and then immediately started playing chords. It was fun and the exercises (and take-home) had me making pleasant sounds right away. I'm looking forward to my next lesson.
