David has many years of experience and emphasized the positive aspects of my singing and helped me improve posture, breathing and my vocal range in just three sessiona. He was very encouraging and I looked forward to our singing lessons. He helped me have the confidence to sing a song for my husband on our wedding day.

Our daughter (Kivi) started with the recorder in 4th grade, and soon graduated to clarinet. By Middle School, she was taking lessons from a classical teacher who advanced her skills markedly. Upon reaching high school, she was in demand by the jazz band - whose leader persuaded her to take up the saxophone. Kivi loved the sax, and loved jazz, but clarinet remained her first instrument. I thought of the great jazz clarinet players: Pete Fountain at the top of a substantial list. But we could find no one who could teach jazz clarinet. Finally, we attended an event at VanderCook, and one of the presenters gave us Jon's name. Kivi studied with Jon for about two years. I was disappointed with the amount of time Kivi had to spend practicing Jon's lessons - what high schooler has time for anything? Nevertheless, Kivi learned a great deal from Jon, and was the only student to ever perform a clarinet solo in our high school's jazz band history ("Jack the Bear"). Jon was unique in my experience in that he taught what Kivi wanted to learn - rather than imposing a rigid course of instruction. If you are considering private lessons that offer something both valuable and unique, please look no further than Jon Novi.

My two sons, 5 & 7, love learning from Mr. Bob! He’s very patient with the kids and talented with multiple instruments (piano, guitar, drums). He holds high expectations for his students, which allows my kids to progress rather quickly. I’ve been very happy with having Mr. Bob as their music teacher; the boys always look forward to going to music lessons.

Elif is a very skilled piano teacher for our son, who came to her already knowing piano but still wanting to better his skills. Lessons are in her beautiful home, set up specifically for piano lessons. Elif is able to listen to and watch his playing, determine what skills he needs, and how to stretch his innate abilities. My son enjoys his lessons very much--which is saying a lot! He leaves feeling enthusiastic about what he just learned, and excited about trying it out. We are very grateful to have found her, and highly recommend her as often as we can.

My daughter started piano lessons with Stacey just a month ago but she is so excited every week to go. We have been very happy with how Stacey has progressed her - continually adding more difficult pieces to work on to see what she can do. This is our first experience w music lessons of any type and we are really happy with Stacey De & Co! Even my son, who never wants to try anything new, has started asking about taking drum lessons there. We couldn't be happier :)

Michele is very personable, patient and just flat out awesome to work with! I'd been meaning to take singing lessons for some time and finally got around to doing it. I've played music for years and studied Jazz/Classical guitar in college and could recognize right away that Michele is a true talent and knows what she's doing. By the end of the introductory class I knew I'd found the right teacher to help me develop my ear and my voice.

Pete taught our son James guitar lessons for about two years. James had never played guitar prior to meeting with Pete, and I was impressed by Pete's patience, optimism and professionalism at every lesson. James can now play several pop songs and even some beginner classical music. Thanks Pete!

Elizabeth Knox is very dedicated to her students, instructing with a level of detail and determination that inspires those she teaches to practice with the same intensity that she offers to them. Her holistic approach to vocal training can benefit voices of all ranges and skill levels, and I have made definite improvement in problem areas I had been unable to make a breakthrough with before. Lessons are never cut-and-dry-- each visit something new is addressed and worked on, from learning repertoire and refining technique, to stage presence and lessons on how our bodies produce sounds. I'm very thankful to have found her.

James McDunn had been teaching my 3 girls piano for at least 3 years. They love him and they are making gigantic leaps and strides in their studies. I highly recommend Jamey for piano lessons.

Nick is a great teacher. He is very knowledgeable and talented. I'm taking lessons for the acoustic guitar. He's great at listening to what I want to achieve and understands how to help me, given my current level and available time I can commit.

Anne has been teaching flute lessons to my son for 4 years - and she has been amazing! She remains patient as he learns new notes & scales, yet knows when to challenge him by incorporating those new skills to play more complex pieces. One of her characteristics that I most appreciate is her ability to quickly identify and correct poor techniques, before they become bad habits that are more difficult to let go. Anne has provided several performance opportunities as well, which have helped build my son's confidence and improve his stage presence. My son now plays in his school's Advanced Band as the youngest student at 9 yrs old. I credit Anne's hard work, encouragement, and teaching excellence for developing his proficiency to keep up with his older peers.
