You think you know guitar... but you have know idea. I have played guitar on and off for over 15 years, including practicing with introductory lessons as a kid, self-learning, open mics, and playing covers and originals with several bands. I would consider myself an "intermediate" player... Nearly one year into lessons with Dan Cohn and my world has changed. For those of you who don't want to read to much further, let me just say - he will transform your playing and take you to the next level. More details: I have had the awesome experience of advancing my rhythm guitar playing, learning how to "truly play" in a band and ensemble setting, and enhance my lead guitar playing, in addition to significantly improving music theory. Without a doubt, Dan is a virtuoso - a master of music practically without any arrogance of airs. If you can dedicate the time and determination to improve your guitar playing, Dan will create a customized path to help you meet your goals. Most importantly, he is an awesome person creating a very cool, inclusive community of musicians through his JamClass program, which aligns your individual lessons and study with real-life application during JamClasses, playing songs with an ensemble of other students. Improving your skills in anything is hard and takes work, Dan expects you to put in the time and effort - and if you do, you will be seriously rewarded and excited about how much you can accomplish!

Tona is an amazingly compassionate and dedicated instructor. She provides voice, violin, and piano lessons to my 3 children; with great flexibility to their varying interests and moods. They are developing a wonderful appreciation for music and the capacity to make their own. Tona is very talented, open, and dedicated to her profession. I would recommend her without reservation.

Don is a very accomplished guitarist with a wealth of knowledge. It shows that he is eager to impart his knowledge. I had my first lesson with him today and I learned so much. He incorporates music theory in to his lessons to show us why things are played the way they are and where they originated from. He was patient and very encouraging. His soloing skills are phenomenal and I am excited to learn from him. I highly recommend him to musicians of all levels. He is now my jazz guitar guru! Hail to the Guitar Chief Don!

I’ve been taking guitar lessons from Gregg every other week for the last 6 months. The main reason I decided to seek out private guitar lessons from an instructor, was because I couldn’t get into online or DVD guitar lessons which I attempted for several months. Moreover, I’m old school when it comes down to music lessons, due to learning the cello through classroom instructor- based lessons from elementary to High School, along with private lessons thereafter. With that being said I can say I’ve made one of the best decisions towards enhancing my playing on the guitar by taking lessons with Gregg. When I first started taking lessons from Gregg, he provided an individual plan for me to help with learning scales, technique exercises, licks, and improvisation. He showed me how to make my own melodies on the guitar by using scale/chord relations. He provided the theory behind using various chords with scales which I did not gain from DVD or online guitar learning. He also broke down how much time I should spend on practicing the guitar to get where I want to be. He is very encouraging and will provide feedback to you which will enable you to improve in certain areas. I would like to recommend Gregg for beginner to intermediate players, as well as advanced players who are preparing for gigs. In addition, Gregg cannot practice for you, he can only provide lessons. I try to practice from 30 minutes to 2 hours a day depending on my daily schedule. Gregg is a great teacher, I am already playing with others (bassist and drummer) and using the skills he taught me to improvise my playing.

Isaac was a fantastic teacher!! I’ve been taking lessons from different teachers for years. He is by far, the best music instructor!! I ended up liking my voice lessons so much, that I took piano as well. It’s really rare to find a teacher that can do more the one instrument, and even rarer to find one who can do it that well. I ended up staying with him for 5 years until he left. He gets my highest recommendation! -Ana

I have used Alvin Smithson's services for over five years as a piano tuner, teacher and performer. I am always impressed with his skills, artistry and professionalism. Alvin first came to tune my 100-years old Steinway after it had been neglected for a number of years. He first examined the instrument, diagnosed what needed to be done and then proceeded with his expert tuning. Immediately after he was done and started playing, I was amazed at how good the piano sounded. Alvin explained that with a piano that hasn't been tuned or played in so many years, it will take some time to achieve its best form and sound for which it was built. A short time after, my wife started taking piano lessons from Alvin and as she started gaining proficiency in playing under his guidance, the piano itself gained a rich pleasing sound. Alvin paid close attention and adjusted notes or did a full tuning whenever needed. He also took the time to clean the strings and do minor technical adjustments. When a string needed to be replaced, Alvin recommended a technician from a highly reputable company. Overall, we owe it to his expertise to have the wonderful old piano do what it was built for by the Steinway masters. I should also mention that I heard some great musicians at venues where Alvin is the regular piano tuner. People who visit our house and hear our piano, or play it themselves, always compliment its sound. But the best comes when Alvin himself sits at the keyboard, whether at our house, at a social function or performing in the theater, it's such a joy to hear him play some great classical pieces as well as his own wonderful compositions. He is truly a very talented, sensitive and highly knowledgeable artist. And such a pleasant person, too. My wife and I feel fortunate to have Alvin give us the best piano sound to enjoy live music in our home. I would recommend him to anyone as piano tuner, teacher and overall musician.

I've been seeing Keith for about 6 months now, I've been drumming for about 4 years, I'm 35 now. I wanted to progress my drumming ability beyond what I learned in the past few years. I originally just wanted to meet for a few lessons to critique my technique, now I see him week to week. I felt Keith was the right guy because he's a seasoned and passionate drummer. He learned directly from the masters, ones who literally wrote the books on modern drumming and shaped modern sound. In a short amount of time he's identified many of my bad habits and helped me to correct them. My technique and grip has improved night and day, I can drum with much more finesse and speed after adopting and practicing his techniques. He urged me to learn to sight read, something I didn't really consider, and now I surprise when I practice myself because I always thought it was too much effort. After practicing his lessons, my independence between limbs, especially left hand on the snare - I didn't think I could do it this easily. I get a lot out of my time with Keith, and I go out of my way to see him weekly. I see kids as young as 5 absolutely jamming in his studio, and older folks too, older than me. His teaching demeanor and general vibe is professional and encouraging. He has a real passion for drums, absolutely key in finding the right teacher. So in short, if you want to step your drumming up, or if your kids need lessons, Keith is your guy.

Eugene’s Music Studio is one of the most professional & kind music studios we had the honor to work with. My son is so excited and cannot wait for his piano lessons. The teacher was able to keep him busy and involved throughout the entire session (not an easy task) and she always comes up with new ways for him to stay involved. We are very happy that we found Eugene's Music Studio. Eugene was very attuned and helped us find the best fit for our child and we look forward to seeing the progress he will make with time.

I hired Bill for electric guitar lessons. I actually shopped for an instructor who would fit my learning style best. I learn by doing things hands-on, not so much auditory learning. After trying 4 different instructors, I decided Bill was the best fit for me. Other instructors were good but did not have what I was looking for such as: not teaching according to my learning style, not understanding my goals, or making me feel like I learned nothing after the first lesson. I felt none of these will Bill. After my first lesson with him, I knew he would be a great fit for me. You can just tell he has experience by interacting with him. I left the lesson feeling satisfied with the information I learned and that I am capable of reaching my goals. He takes his time with each lesson, does not rush, and welcomes all questions. He is patient with newbies like me and adept at explaining things in a manner that I will understand. I never feel overwhelmed with the information he gives. I like that he gives positive encouragement when you do something correctly. He will also help you correct you if you have bad form/technique. Bill is very professional, he responds to inquiries quickly. He has the knowledge, experience, and background to help you reach your goals. He has a great personality and is willing to work with your schedule. I highly recommend Bill as an instructor!

I am over 30 years old and went to Miles with zero musical knowledge let alone any experience playing the drums. Miles reaches that perfect balance of being patient and pushing me to learn more. He has introduced information to me at a rate that is appropriate and takes the time to work through the musical concepts with me. At the same time he knows when to push forward with more challenging aspects of playing the drums to get the most out of our lessons. Miles is clearly very knowledgeable and talented and I recommend him highly if you are looking for drum lessons.
