I have been playing and teaching for so long, I have seen many many different types of people at different ability levels. I know how to help all different kinds of players and people. From a young adolescent, to a retiree, to special needs, I have seen it all. I like helping people play music. Kinda makes the world a better place. I love it when the student begins to understand something about music he/she previously didn't know prior to our lessons. That is very gratifying.(show more)

What or who inspired you to start your own business?
I have always been entrepreneurial at heart. One day, about 8 or 9 years ago, sitting on the beach in Wildwood, NJ, I was reading "Rich Dad, Poor Dad", a light bulb popped on in my head. Although the book isn't a practical business book, it's great because it gets the creative juices flowing and gets the reader dreaming. I had an idea in that instant that I knew would work as a business. I had a gut instinct about it and a clear-as-day vision of what it would look like and how it would operate. I would turn my passion for music, my current job and expertise, my determination to teach real, quality music lessons that weren't just fast, easy, and fun but a real gift that would be with my students for their entire lives. I saw how I could turn that into a business that would matter in people's lives. I can't see myself doing any other job. I am fortunate that I was able to turn my love for music into a business that I love running every single day.
