I've been taking lessons on and off with Aaron for a few years, and I always enjoy them. Aaron focuses on the music that I like to play, and finds a way to help me build my skills within the genre of music that I enjoy and would like to perform. He always makes the lessons fun, but appropriately challenging. Most importantly, he provides a lot of opportunities to perform with other students and musicians, which keeps me motivated to practice and improve. I would, and often do, recommend Aaron for anyone considering taking guitar lessons.

As a karaoke addict and musical theatre lover, I finally decided I was going to take the plunge into taking singing lessons. I looked around at several options in the St. Louis area, but Shock City was the only place that looked like they knew what they were doing, at a reasonable price. I've been taking lessons for a few weeks now and I'M SO GLAD THAT I CHOSE THEM. From the get-go, Genny was incredibly responsive and thorough in explaining all of my options. I'm a recent college grad that works at a nonprofit, I don't have a ton of money to spend. Genny helped craft a pricing option for me that worked with my budget, and worked with me to find an instructor that was tailored to my specific goals. She led me to find an instructor, Liya, who has been AWESOME. Already on our first meeting, she made me feel comfortable and has brought a fun and playful attitude to our lessons in addition to her vast expertise. They record all of your lessons for you, so that you can review them and practice on your own time, and you can even message your instructor and ask questions through their TeacherZone program. I've already made significant improvements and I'm having a ton of fun! Thanks Shock City for giving me a platform to pursue my dreams!

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.

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!

After a brief phone conversation, Matt offered me a opportunity that I couldn't refuse with his in person sessions and online course material. Immediately upon meeting, his professionalism and expertise was evident. He studied my current habits quickly and we addressed some very minor things that needed attention. He also focused on my positives and worked towards excelerating those as well. His session style is very open and his teaching method had me walking away with a new found respect and love for practice. (That's right, I said LOVE for practice) If anything, have a quick phone call with him and sit down for one session. You won't regret it. Cheers to the future!
