"I took about a handful of piano lessons several years ago and recently decided I wanted to give it another try. All my colleagues possess artistic talents outside their careers, and I want to bring something to the table. Ray Akers absolutely helped me achieve that goal! He thoroughly coursed me through the basics, techniques, and exercises until I had a comfortable understanding. He is no stranger to constructive criticism, but he also points out my strengths and encourages improvement through independent practice. Before I knew it, I was reading sheet music while playing without sweating profusely! A very diverse and talented musician himself, he helped me uncover my own niche in music genres. I have an entirely new perception and level of appreciation now when enjoying a live performance or listening to an album. I'm so glad I got more than I expected from his instruction. Mr. Akers is punctual, professional, technical and always ready to share his knowledge and joy of musical expression. I would definitely recommend him to a friend!"
