Started going for violin lessons (I'm in my 20's with no music background). Had only a couple of classes so far. I really like the pace and her style of teaching. She is professional and very easy to work with.

I've been taking guitar and singing lessons with David for a few months, and I've got to say I've had a really great time learning from him! David is an incredibly friendly and knowledgeable teacher who clearly cares about his students and their goals, and better still has played and performed with the artists that I like best. It took me a while to find a teacher who was willing to teach me the music I wanted to play instead of starting with their core competence, so it was really refreshing that within a month or two with plenty of practice I was able to learn one of my favorite songs (Three Rounds and a Sound by Blind Pilot, if you're curious), and a little longer to start singing it, which I was really stoked about. He has been great about breaking things down when the piece we're working on is too challenging. David has also pushed me to pursue my goal of creating music, helping along the way to create melodies and lyrics. I have to say, it takes a great teacher to get me to sing and to share lyrics with them (do you know how embarrassing that can be?). I could go on, but suffice it to say, David is a great teacher, and I'm really glad I started taking lessons with him.

I started piano lessons with Toby in January 2017. Toby is one of the best teachers I have ever known. She is incredibly patient, well-organized, and customizes lessons to fit each student's unique needs. I am a Chopin lover and Toby specializes in Romantic period composers like Chopin. She truly cares about the progress of her students. Toby lets her students choose their pieces and she often plays select classical pieces to inspire and push me. I am starting a beginning intermediate Chopin piece already as she has really inspired me to practice and improve. She has also played some of her original compositions which are beautiful. She is a virtuoso pianist. I feel so lucky to have her as a teacher. Don't hesitate to contact her for lessons.

I started taking piano lessons from Miles a year ago as a total beginner. He's taught me how to read music, play classical music, and even play a few rock and blues songs as well! My favorite part of the lesson is when I get to improvise while Miles plays with me. The lessons are always so fun and inspiring.

If you are looking for an excellent vocal coach, look no further! I have had voice lesson since I was 11 years old and had quite a few teachers in my life, but Ann is by far the best I have ever had. I was trained as a classical singer and now switching over to contemporary music. This is quite a challenge. I am so happy I found her because she is the first one who is actually able to help me with that mission. Ann is not only an incredible teacher, she is also one of the most wonderful people I've met in my life. She has high energy, is patient, always encouraging and wants you to be the best singer you can be. I can honestly say she is a blessing!

I have worked with Ben Bernstein on numerous projects. He is reliable, friendly, very funny, professional and skilled at his many talents. I have performed with Ben, utilizing his talents as a bassist, but mostly I have turned to him for his consistent and high quality work in the studio as an engineer. I produce numerous genres of music: folk, rock, hip hop, country, salsa…Ben is willing to do the research and work to make my recordings, mixes and masters sound top-notch.

Chris Peck is an excellent guitar/music teacher. He is the total package: an outstanding teacher who teaches both technique and a love of music, a passionate and skilled musician, and a great human being. His approach is to tap into each student's music tastes, so the kids learn, explore, and grow with genres/artists they love, and that means that his students are engaged and motivated. My kids love working with Chris and have blossomed musically.

I have recorded 20+ songs with Devan and have enjoyed Devan's professionalism and attention to detail with my songs. I have recorded in 5-10 studios in the past and find that Devan's technical and communication skills set him apart from the rest. The recording environment sets a warm, welcoming and creative environment which is necessary for every artist's success.

I played acoustic and electric guitars starting at the age of 9. I never learned how to read music for lead. I could read chords. I could play lead by ear but that was not what I wanted. I put the guitars down, went on with my life, got married (still am), and became a housewife. In my mid 50's I wanted to learn how to read music and play lead again. I got Geoff as my teacher. He was great.!! He was very patient, took time to teach me what I wanted to play, wrote everything down, taught me the proper power chords, pull offs, bends, rake, just to name a few. If I didn't quite get something, he would play it over and over at my request 'till it sunk in! This was not because Geoff was not a great teacher, it was because I didn't practice enough. Being married and having other things to do made practicing as much as I wanted and needed to was hard. I have never met a nicer person who took the time to teach a woman in her fifties how to play the guitar. He gave me a lot of advice along with the lessons and the lessons were never boring. I went from half hour lessons to a full hour because I enjoyed it so much. I saw him play live with a band he was in and I was in awe! In my opinion, Geoff should be on stage and putting records on the top of the charts. He is an excellent guitar player and is very dedicated to his students. I would still be taking lessons from Geoff had I not injured my neck making holding a heavy electric guitar too painful. Hopefully, it will heal and all my music books filled with all he taught me will be put back to use. I would recommend Geoff as a fine teacher to anyone from beginner to expert. He knows what he is doing and how to make the lessons fit the student. I have very small hands and he even changed chords or notes to fit my hands without it not sounding correct. Great job Geoff. I give Geoff Svendsgaard 5 stars!!!

I wanted a song i wrote to be produce for a contest. I contacted Felton because he was the only one willing to take the music I had in my head and turn it into a song. I arrived at his studio where we had tea and got to know each other. He seemed genuinely interested in my music. He made my song much better than I could have anticipated. He helped made my vocals sound better. He worked hard all day on my song. I strongly believe he is the best in this business.

I have experimented with music (guitar and harmonica) for a number of years without any direction or form and I'm so blessed to have found Cherie. She creates a relaxing environment where I can focus and understand basic music theory, she makes it comprehensive which others have not been able to do up to this point. And I have now expanded into a new area in my music lessons with voice training. Each lesson gives me more confidence and assurance in my playing and singing. I highly recommend Cherie. I am also impressed with her as a performer and feel honored to have as my musical guru.

About

I have a student-centered approach, which involves being attentive to how the person learns and the caring for focus of their intentions -- what they hope to learn. I've been teaching private guitar lessons 'formally' since 2001, shortly after graduating from the Musicians Institute's professional guitar and recording arts programs. During the last six years, I have also been an instructor of music theory for audio engineering students as well as for students of psychoacoustics at the Globe Institute in San Francisco. This is college-level music theory presented in a condensed format with specific applications in mind. Myriads of nationalities, cultures, ages, genders and musical backgrounds accompany the people who make up those classes, and they have helped me develop the skill for relating this material to all manner of people simultaneously. As a result, my one-on-one classes are even more enriched. My goal is to help you reach your goals in the most simple and joyful manner. The basics of what I offer are as follows: * Guitar -- Most Styles, Beginner and Intermediate * Recording Software -- Logic, Ableton, Native Instruments, Etc. * Music Theory -- Beginner and Intermediate * Ear Training * Composition * Songwriting * Audio Engineering/Production -- Beginner * Inner Music Theory -- A Psychoacoustic/Sound Healing Approach * Piano -- Beginner I also offer a generalized musician package in which any or all of what I teach is thoughtfully organized for your goals. Included are basic vocal coaching, percussion rudiments and loads of other pertinent basics.
