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.

Jason was excellent, no if's and's or but's to that statement. He provided great customer service, answered every single question I had very quickly, and set me up with exactly what I asked for via music lessons and an instructor. I am very grateful for all of his help.

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 :)

My 9-year-old daughter and 7-year-old son have taken piano lessons with Elif for several years now. Aside from being a wonderful teacher, she has also taught my children many life lessons through her instruction that will stick with them forever. I cannot say enough good things about her!

The way Bill explains everything is just off of fact based knowledge. He makes what some make seem so confusing and complicated make sense to literally anyone with ears. Bill has a special way of making his advice relatable and ensures that he is getting through to you. His passion for his work is relentless and I cannot recommend this guy enough for anyone that wants to understand the true nature of how to sing. Most bennifical lesson I've ever had hands down.

It was great to have David as a teacher and as a new friend. I definitely could see his passion for drumming and I learned so much from him. Before, I couldn't even think about moving my hands differently to my legs, but now I am able to and in only a short amount of time! I loved learning different music genres from David from bossa nova to funk rock to pure jazz. Loved it all and wish I could continue! Thank you so much, David!!!

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.

More than just a teacher. I took guitar lessons with Paul for eight years. He helped me realize my natural ear for music, and allowed me to figure out what I wanted to learn. Our lessons were always different. Sometimes I would bring in songs that I wanted to learn, and sometimes he would have things he thought I should know how to play, which helped me learn similar songs later on. When I was applying to college and needed to learn how to read music and play jazz guitar, he tailored all of our lessons so that I could learn those techniques quickly and most importantly, efficiently. Paul's personality transcends the teacher-student relationship, which allowed he and I to become very good friends. Paul William is an excellent teacher for whatever you need to learn. You can't go wrong taking lessons from him.

Yuen Yee Richardson has been providing weekly piano lessons for my 2 kids since May 2016. Our kids enjoy their lessons with her, have made great progress in their proficiency and are always happy to play a song or two, whether on their own or upon request. Yuen Yee is easy to work with, provides constructive feedback about how our kids are doing, and very communicative. We have recommended her to our friends with no hesitation.

I first tried to learn guitar through a few of the popular guitar websites out there. I was able to pick up some of the basics like open chords and the pentatonic scales, but I also picked up a lot of bad habits. After a few months, I decided to take some private lessons to see what the experience would be like. I was pretty blown away by how much a learned in just 1 hour. Matt has been very effective at helping me improve my abilities in a relatively short amount of time. After just a few months of lessons, I felt confident enough to perform at a few local open mic nights. For me, the most important aspect of lessons has been learning from my mistakes. Without a professional teacher, it's hard to know what you're doing wrong, what you could be doing better, etc. Matt is an expert at all things guitar. If you take lessons with him and work hard at practicing, you're going to improve very quickly. It's that simple. I really can't say enough good things about my experience.

Randy was there in a time when I was unsure of where my voice was heading after years of Bel Canto lessons. Within a few lessons my direction was clearer, my voice stronger and I knew I had found a technique that would bring me through the years as a Singer in any genre I should so chose.

Greg is the best! He is an incredibly talented musician. He is B able to adapt any piece to your abilities. He wants you to play pieces you're interested in. His encouragement was kind, but firm-- which is exactly what I needed. He held me to a high standard that I was eager to meet. He has a great sense of humor, which made lessons fun and stress free. I highly recommend Greg!

Liz was my voice teacher from when I was in middle school up until I was college. She always encouraged and challenged me to embrace my voice and to sing the music I love. She taught me how to sing with a healthy technique which I still apply today in my career. Liz is a wonderful teacher and I'm happy she is still a supportive person in my life today.

I took weekly lessons from Eric for over 4 years. I had very little experience playing the drums, but a lot of desire to learn. I couldn't have chosen a better instructor than Eric. He taught me how to read music, and always wrote out practice drills which really helped me in learning the overall lessons. Eric is extremely perceptive, and can immediately recognize what his students do well and wrong. By isolating specific parts of the lesson that causes difficulty, Eric creates drills that make learning the new part easier and more fun. He will also play the part for you to give you an idea of how it should sound. Because of Eric, I have learned numerous styles of drumming and the principles behind them. Eric is a cool guy with an easy going personality, but he will always challenge you to do your best. I strongly recommend him to anyone interested in learning how to play the drums.

Jeff was great! Friendly, supportive and has a positive "let's do this" attitude. He knows a lot and is passionate about music and teaching it to others. In our first hour he showed me where I am currently and what I'll need to do to get to my desired level.

Cameron is an excellent guitar teacher and an outstanding musician. He teaches both practical technique and musical theory. His skill enables him to teach students ranging from beginner to advanced. He's personally invested in his students growth and always available for questions outside of lessons. Highly recommend.

Mile is timely, comes prepared, and is patient with my three children - all under age 12. He tries to maintain their interest in piano by balancing lessons in technical theory, with sheet music they are interested in learning. My kids have told me they prefer lessons with him over their last teacher.
