I've been taking guitar lessons with Kimberly since the beginning of 2011. At the time I'd had several years of lessons using a traditional method on acoustic guitar and was looking for a teacher who could help me focus on electric blues rock and move me beyond my intermediate skill level. Kimberly has a real focus on and talent for teaching. My lessons are tailored to meet my interests. A large part of the lesson is devoted to learning her method for blues soloing--at least 5 approaches to improvisation and comping. After several years, I've come to see how these approaches interweave, complement each other and have become an intuitive part of my musical vocabulary. Also, because I expressed an interest, part of the lesson involves sight reading, learning blues and jazz theory, developing rhythmic playing sense, and learning a few favorite solos. Kimberly has an amazing ability to tab out and teach any song you give her. Which leads to the best part--after 6 months I was invited to play with one of her ensemble classes. While I was absolutely petrified with fear at the beginning, this has turned into one of the highlights of my week every week. It is just downright fun! It's a safe and forgiving environment where you can make mistakes and learn, or try things out that might flop, or turn into something cool. Every teacher and guitar magazine article all point to the need to play with other musicians to develop your skills and this is where Kimberly Allison really delivers. I feel that I could now sit in with other musicians and contribute. I give my highest recommendation for taking lessons with Kimberly.
Highly Impressed! Were highly impressed by the first lesson! It was an excellent start. Our instructor Chelsea quickly figured out how to connect with my son, invoking an excitement to learn the basics as well as the fun parts. My son expressed the desire to have longer lessons coming up, which says it all!
Stefano is a great teacher! I started taking drum lessons as an adult who'd always wanted to learn drums but had no experience. Stefano makes sure to work at your pace, finding the balance between pushing you to grow while ensuring you grasp everything and are actively improving and understanding. He also dives right into your favorite music making practicing fun and satisfying from the very start.
I started taking drum lessons later in life as I've always wanted to learn. After a great birthday present from a friend I started lessons with Mike. He is great at listening to what I wanted to learn and was very, very patient with me. I've always had trouble reading music but he taught me in no time and made the lessons very fun and interesting. He let me pick the songs I wanted to learn and he would even play along to help me get it right! Mike is a very talented drummer, musician and teacher. I would highly recommend him to anyone who is interested in learning the drums, he'll have you playing in no time!!
Alex is patience and funny! I had lots of fun on my first lessons and he understand if you are a total beginner which I appreciate! Looking forward to another lesson, 100% recommend! :)
Frank is an amazing instructor. He is very personal, inspiring and talented. He has the on going experience of playing professionally at many shows. He makes his lessons fun and really helps to get his students to continuously improve their skills. He has been my son’s favorite instructor. I highly recommend him.
Nolan is a consummate professional, both with his drumming skills and his demeanor. He is able to be firm enough with my 10 year old son (who thinks life revolves around video games), yet never overbearing. This is perfect for a kid with a short attention span! I appreciate the way he challenges my son and encourages him at the same time. I have been a life long musicians playing guitar and singing for over 25 years, and with all the drummers I know, if I was going to take drum lessons I would want to take them from Nolan!
I’d been wanting to learn how to play drums since high school but just never got around to it. A friend recommended Geo highly and I finally bit the bullet and started lessons. I am so glad I did!!! Geo is such a great teacher — really patient, and responsive to my needs as a student. I work full time and Geo is always flexible. I am also not as young as I used to be and not a fast learner, but Geo is super patient and is always coming up with exercises and pieces to learn that are more my speed. He’s also so fun and just a cool dude — 10/10 recommend!!!
My son started formal drum lessons with Steve two and a half years ago. Steve set the bar on professionalism, flexibility, communication, and has the patience to teach music to younger kids. My son went from a kid banging on a toy drum, to a musician that could play drum set rhythms in an elementary school jazz band. We've had other instructors since Steve left the Los Alamitos area but none of them compared to his high level of attributes listed earlier.
Henry Newmark is an INCREDIBLE drum set teacher and mentor. Henry attended the Berklee School of Music, Henry's approach is precise and professional. Henry is the REAL deal and his instruction is phenomenal. You or your child will absolutely be learning proper technique as well as music theory. Henry is a perfectionist in the best way possible. My son took lessons once or twice a week with Henry for 5 years straight. Not only did my son look forward to his lessons every week, but he went from being a beginning student to now being a freshman percussion major at the Interlochen Arts Academy in Michigan. Henry taught my son drum set, orchestral and snare drumming, and jazz drum set. There is NO WAY my son would be where he is today without Henry. Henry is also very kind and has a great sense of humor. There is no better drum teacher then Henry Newmark. If you want to learn how to play the drums, he is your guy without a doubt.
My son and daughter have had piano lessons with Cheri from Middle C Music for over a year, the past few months over Skype. We have had a terrific experience. My kids are very different, my daughter has autism and does not speak much and my son can get anxious, but Cheri is incredibly patient and works with both kids at their level. She goes out of her way to engage them with the music and works with them to select music they are interested in.
Chase's lessons have been super helpful! His lessons are customized to my skill level and the desired facets I have been wanting to improve on. He's already improved my knowledge of fundamental guitar theory, as well as songwriting and recording. Definitely recommend!
Jeffery is the best. I always had so much fun during my lessons with him and would highly recommend him to anyone looking to learn the drums. He’ll tailor the lesson and his teaching method for whatever works best for the student. He’s knowledgeable, patient, and one of the funniest people I’ve ever met. 5 stars all the way.
I have been studying Afrocuban percussion with Caitlin once a week for 7 years now. She is a very talented multi-instrumentalist. She has been very committed to my growth and as a result of her patience and persistence has gotten me to understand and learn far more than I ever expected. She has developed a very personal style of teaching that was perfect for my growth, I am very grateful to have found Caitlin and recommend her to student of all levels.
I had a class with Chris and it was totally inspiring mind opening. We played on his studio for more than an hour and he showed me very interesting concepts about rudiments and how to apply in music. You can learn the base rudiments in a book, but Chris really nows how to use in the drums in a musical and inspiring way. Besides that, he showed me concepts about timing that I didn't had contact with other teachers. He's very creative on drums and has a good method for teaching it.

We have a team of musicians with great skills and knowledge of the music Industry! We don't bore you with theory, we go straight to learning how to play your instrument, and you also get tips on how to start your own band!
In addition to being technically proficient, I was raised by the music of dc so in my playing one can hear a spectrum of different feels from high energy hardcore and punk tempos to the slow pocket of dc's indigenious groove music, go go.
I have a lot of experience with many levels and abilities of playing, and have taught free lance and with multiple programs.
