I can honestly say Charlie has been an awesome teacher! I had a specific goal in mind when I wanted to take up guitar lessons on an improbable timeline. Not only did Charlie have full confidence in reaching my goal in time, but tailored the lessons from day 1 to what I wanted to achieve.

Jake is awesome! I’m a very beginner and his guidance and encouragement are helping me stay motivated to learn. He’s giving me the full experience of learning the guitar: theory, notes, chords and how they all work together.

I have known Chris for over Thirty years, and have benefited greatly from his knowledge of and passion for music. He has been a mentor on my chosen instrument (which is the bass guitar), and taught me many concepts that opened doors of perception as I pursued my personal quest to master my instrument. He has recorded, mixed, and mastered many of my personal song projects with great results. His knowledge of studio equipment and techniques is impressive. He is a master of his instrument (the guitar) and all the associated gear, hardware, effects, amps, etc. My personal home studio would have been impossible for me to get up and running without his advice and direction. On a personal note I consider him one of my lifelong friends. He is both humble, and humorous. You can’t go wrong choosing his services and wisdom in any area involving music performance, theory, and production. Sincerely, Robert Rice

Ms. Minnie is an awesome, loving and an extremely caring teacher. Ms. Minnie goes out of her way to make the children feel special and very confident about themselves. Ms. Minnie holds 2 recitals each year and my Daughter looks forward to every single one. She commends each chil with beautiful trophies and always has a special speech prepared for each of her students. My Daughter has been with her for 2 years and has mastered the piano to the fullest. She is about to start taking guitar lessons with Ms. Minnie really soon. I would recommend Ms. Minnie to any child or adult who is looking for a loving and concerned teacher and friend. She is the greatest!!

I began my guitar lessons with Dave Garski initially knowing nothing at all about music theory or how to play the guitar. By the time that I ended my lessons with him three years later I was able to figure out and write my own music. I as well learned and became comfortable with many different scales. What I appreciated about Daves Teaching methods was the one and one teaching style. I think it allowed for a more personalized education plan that was custom tailored to my specific needs, in my areas of strength/difficulties in music. While a appreciated the free form teaching methods that he also practiced, I would have preferred teaching that was a bit more structured. Overall I have to say that I had an incredibley positive experience from Dave Garski's "guitar lessons orlando" and would, if I still had the financial means, continue my lessons with him if I could.

So far Emily has been great - she provides materials in advance, is clearly knowledgeable, and conducts my lessons on Skype while I am out of the country. She is good enough that I have hired her to do lessons with my teenage son.......

    I immediately felt a change in my voice after just a few lessons with Ms. Karen. She is an excellent teacher, and works very professionally. With her guidance, I have expanded my range greatly and have learned many different styles of singing. I have been able to work out certain "kinks" in my voice that I'd had for ages as well. Last November, I gained a superior rating at the district Solo and Ensemble festival-- which I could not have gotten without Karen's valuable help and experience. Additionally, I have received a part in my school's musical with her assistance for my audition piece. I am very comfortable around her and I put much trust into her work. She is a very kind woman, and I feel like I can achieve anything with my voice because of her. Karen cares so much for all of her students and I am extremely gracious that I have Ms. Karen for a teacher.

    Brian was a fantastic piano and guitar instructor for my daughter. He truly makes learning fun for a teenager. He was always on time, patient during lessons, and his amazing talent was inspirational. Plus he has a great personality and gets along well with parents. His fees are very fair, too. (My daughter stopped lessons because she went off to college.).....Additionally, Brian is a wonderful entertainer for parties. He recently played at my mother's 85th birthday bash. EVERYONE loved his beautiful classical guitar music.

    About

    As a teacher, I focus equally on formal technique and personal expression. Mastering correct form provides the foundation, upon which a student's capacity for the latter may grow. I view our time together as an opportunity to encourage musical and personal growth. My goal is to encourage discipline while fostering creativity. Maintaining the student's interest by adapting my teaching methods to every individual is an important focus, as is engaging the student by allowing him/her choice in the material we learn in lessons. This not only facilitates a cooperative environment, but also allows me to tailor my teaching style to the student's interests, strengths, and learning preferences. My tuition for private instructions are as follows: * 30 minutes for $25 * 45 minutes for $37.50 * 60 minutes for $50 I believe music theory is an important focus for a student to understand how tones relate to each other in any piece of music. These relationships will be explored aurally, visually, and tactilely in all lessons. In teaching, my goal is to encourage students to learn and grow independently. In my studio (or your home), mistakes are opportunities for improvement. For the duration of our lesson, you (or your child) are in a nurturing zone of freedom of expression. Join me in an exploration of personal talent and creativity.
