I took piano lessons as a teenager about 60 years ago. Over the years, my keyboard abilities have diminished significantly. Gary came up with a plan that will change my playing style and enable me to enjoy playing again. Gary is very easy to work with. The first lesson energized me and I look forward to working with Gary.

Thanks to Billy my 13 year old has been re inspired!! She has been singing for 8 years and was close to giving it up. She now looks forward to her lessons. My 10 year old, who lives to sing has reached new levels in her vocal training and is seeing progress with each lesson. She has also started piano with katelyn and cannot wait to be able to play independently. Love the new studio and the loving, encouraging vibe there.

Barb's Continuo Home Music Lessons provided home lessons to my son. Not only was the instructor very talented, but they knew exactly how to interact with a young person to keep his interest throughout the lesson and encouraged practicing beyond the lesson. Barb is always prompt and goes out of her way to accomodate scheduling issues.

Chris can teach both drums (drum kit) and various percussion instruments (tympani, tuned percussion, etc.). I am taking lessons from Chris mainly to learn basic rock drumming on a standard drum kit. He is a wonderful teacher. He'll give you valuable lessons not only on playing the drum kit, but also on good drumming fundamentals, such as proper stick grip, how to position your hands on the stick, and stick control, speed and independence. He will also instruct you in good habits and tips for practicing the drums between lessons. I very highly recommend Chris as a drum and percussion teacher.

Paul is a great teacher and my guitar lessons with him have been very beneficial. I have improved my technique, learned a lot about music theory, and learned shortcuts to simplify songs and chords to make them easier for me to play.

    Both my daughters took guitar lessons with Wes. Hands down he is the one of best in the area. Wes has the ability to reach anyone at any level and brings out the absolute best in them. He listens to the individual student and understands their needs and desires to help bring out their personal best. Wes is versatile and talented and we were fortunate to know Wes and be taught by such a consummate professional. He relates well to any age level and doesn't push his music repertoire/agenda onto his students but gives them the opportunity to explore their style and genre of music freely. I highly recommend this fine and talented musician and teacher!!

    Jason Martin is a thoughtful dedicated musician who has a great teaching style. He is always prepared, professional and patient. His drive to better himself while pushing others is what is truly special about Mr.Martin. He has been playing for over 20 years and it shows. He is comfortable teaching Metallica as well as Scruggs. He has an amazing selection of instruments so you can try different tunings or stringed instruments. He has you work on pieces of your interest right away, which keeps you engaged. I do not think you could find a better teacher anywhere.

    Mr. Blackwell is an awesome teacher, and very gifted. My daughter looks forward to her weekly lessons. In a short few months of lessons you can hear the difference (control) in her voice. You will not be disappointed in the services of Blackwell's School of Music and Film.

      My son has been taking lessons with Jim for 2 years. Jim is a gift! He is so patient and positive, making every lesson fun for my son. He looks forward to his lesson every week. I highly recommend Jim!


      I provide beginner and intermediate drum lessons in all genres and styles. I focus on groove and technique rather than reading or charts.


      Tom Dest has been teaching music consecutively for 27 years to private individuals and groups. This includes lessons to beginners, intermediate and advanced students on drumset, vibraphone and marimba. Tom also teaches hand drums, music composition, music theory and recording engineering. Some places Tom where has given lessons are Trinity College, Hartford Academy of the Performing Arts, various public school percussion programs, Dynamic Percussion, Creative Music, and presently, at Varela Music. The cost for lessons is $22.00 per half hour. Why are lessons with Tom so inexpensive while most other teachers and studios are charging more but have less experience? With our present economy, most prices for every thing are on the rise. Tom simply does not want to follow suit; that’s all. Thanks, Tom P.S. I do not accept any kind of pre-payment via mail or electronic transfer for lessons.


      I provide voice and piano lessons, dance and theatre classes, percussion, clarinet and guitar lessons and more! I also offer mommy-and-me classes.
