I have had 5 guitar lessons with Jeff so far..He is great and very patient with me...He takes his time and teaches me the songs I want to learn to play..I can't believe the progress I made in such a short time..If any of you are considering to learn how to play you should hire Jeff to teach you..Dennis Clements....Bethalto, Illinois..

My son (and daughter for a bit) has worked with Aaron for many years. He is flexible and easy to work with. His easy going personality is a great fit for my son. Lessons are well organized. Aaron works hard to give kids many opportunities to play for an authentic audience, whether it's open mic nights at a coffee shop, or playing at a local festival. He also gets his students together from time to time so they can collaborate. I would highly recommend Aaron for guitar lessons.

Katie taught my two girls piano during the 2011-2012 (5th & 6th grades) & 2012-2013 (6th & 7th grades) school years, and some during the summers. They each did half an hour lessons with her each week. Katie works very well with children, my girls loved her! She was very encouraging each week to one of my daughters, who is extremely hard on herself. She is also flexible & extremely knowledgeable in the area of music. She was able to see that one of my daughters played better by ear and the other one played better by reading the music & switched one of their piano books accordingly, in the middle of the school year. Katie is a great piano teacher and I highly recommend her.

About

I teach beginning violin and piano lessons, as well as music theory, and reading using a combination of hands-on activities and written work. I have been playing both piano and violin since I was 4 years old, and actively participating in a variety of performance venues. My program of instruction includes music theory and notation taught utilizing 3-dimensional pieces in hands-on activities, making the understanding of rhythm and sound a multi-sensory experience.

About

I'm teaching private in-home piano lessons to students aged 4 through adult. All lessons and plans are prepared weekly on an individual basis for each student. Since I teach the student and not the book, students advance legitimately in a faster pace. Of course, music theory, sight-reading, and composition are included.

Justin is an excellent player, as well as an equally skilled teacher. He was able to evaluate where I was and what I already knew, so that he could help me correct techniques I had learned wrongly/poorly and also to help me build on the foundation I had already started with. He took the time with me necessary to explain scales, and their shapes, modes and how everything fits together. He is extremely patient and clear, making the learning process easy and painless. I have been to so many other teachers before who had made me feel stupid for not already knowing something on guitar, or not being able to accomplish it in a quick amount of time. Justin was able to not only be a clear teacher, but also be encouraging throughout the process as well. I can't wait to keep learning from him, he is definitely the best teacher I have had yet!
