I have known Lynn for 35 years and you cannot ask for a better piano teacher. Lynn started teaching me piano 35 years ago, and now she is teaching my daughter. Lynn is extremely caring, knowledgeable and passionate. Our daughter has flourished since beginning piano lessons with Lynn 2 years ago; she is playing advanced songs that most students her age wouldn't be able to play. Lynn makes learning piano fun, and our daughter enjoys practicing daily without us having to remind her. We are very happy to have Lynn as our teacher, and would encourage anyone interested in piano to call her first.

I went to two other guitar teachers before finally finding Jacob. Those other guys were nice enough, but they didn't seem to be very professional. One of them was kind of flaky, too. He kept calling me back to reschedule and there was this one time when he actually forgot that we had a lesson booked. Jacob couldn't be any more different than those guys. For starters, he is super professional. He has an answer for every question you throw at him and it’s obvious that he is really passionate about teaching. He helped me structure and organize everything I already knew about playing guitar, and it all suddenly started to make sense to me. From there, things really took off and I started to get better by the week. Jacob designed a practice routine that fitted me perfectly and he makes sure I always stay on track. His lessons are really really fun and by the time we're done, I'm always amazed at how much we had accomplished in just one hour. It's really obvious that the guy has been doing this for a long while. I can’t recommend Jacob enough. He is an awesome person and by far one of the best musicians I have ever had the pleasure of listening to. If you're looking for a great guitar teacher, look no further.

I studied the flute as a music major in college and returned to the piano later in life for my enjoyment. I have had many excellent music teachers throughout the years, and Martin ranks with the very best. He always starts by telling me what he appreciates about my playing in the lessons. He then goes on to make suggestions about how I can play as musically as possible. Lessons with Martin are always lively and interesting. He never assigns any of those horrible technical exercises that have been written for the piano. Instead he helps me develop my technique by suggesting fascinating and beautiful pieces to work on. I always leave my lessons musically inspired, and this carries through into my practicing between lessons. He has helped me enjoy playing the piano more and more. Martin is extremely intelligent, yet humble. He has a terrific sense of humor. And of course, his piano playing is beautiful. I cannot recommend Martin highly enough!

About

I've been teaching guitar and music theory since 1991 in almost all styles which include rock soloing and rhythm techniques, blues, beginning jazz as well as various finger style genres such as folk, classical and flamenco. I teach beginner to advance students. I often use the student's favorite songs to incorporate theory and technique. I am patient but thorough and always respectful and professional. I believe in trying to pass on my strong love of music alongside essential musical knowledge. To me, music is about joy, passion, meditation, healing and self expression. I've been hooked since the age of 8!
