Kevin is a great guy. As an adult wanting to take guitar lessons he made it very easy for me even though I was nervous about taking lessons. He allowed me to play the songs that I was interested in playing and his instruction was great. He is very easy going and never gets upset or frustrated when I could't get it right. His knowledge to change chords of songs to fit my vocal range was also very helpful. He also gave advice on how to improve my vocals. I would recommend Kevin for any age level for guitar and vocals.
Joel was extremely nice, flexible, and arrived early and rolled with a very strange/chaotic ceremony with horrible acoustics. Really appreciated the beautiful music and relaxed attitude.
My studio is a 5-day-a-week, one-stop shop where both students and/or adults may rent, purchase and/or repair their string instruments as they attend lessons at the same Heaney Violins location. I teach Suzuki method piano, violin, viola, guitar, beginning cello, and recorder beginning from ages 2 1/2 upwards. Voice is also taught and other instruments including ukelele, mandolin, banjo and harmonica. South Indian karnatak violin is also an option. Biannual recitals are held closely to the Mountain View studio location, and monthly group classes are also encouraged along with weekly instruction. Younger Suzuki students must be accompanied by parents who will learn along with their child how to play their instrument of choice. Typically, students enroll a semester at a time, except for summer sessions which are open enrollment periods.

I am a long-time professional guitar, fiddle, and mandolin player and teacher in the Bay Area. I currently teach ages 7 to 86 years old, and I give my students a solid knowledge of chords, melodies, music/tablature reading, technique, various styles, as well as an understanding of how music works. With practice, the fun begins! The more you play, the more joyful your musical experience becomes. Playing an instrument can often lead to playing with others, which is a great way to create community. I also offer a band experience through my StringSwingSingBand. I am currently on the board of Berkeley's Freight and Salvage, one of the country's top music venues.
