Don knows his stuff, he's easy to get along with and overall a really nice guy. He has an impressive repertoire of musical skills and a lifetime of experience in music to draw from. As far as instruments he can play a little bit of everything, he can basically teach you any instrument you'd find in a regular rock band, folk, country, pop, blues etc. He's probably most proficient on the guitar and piano but he also knows quite a lot about vocals. If you struggle with theory he does a great job demystifying some of the fundamentals of music theory that are useful to beginners. Whether you're an absolute beginner or long time musician Don will be able to help you out. Highly recommend.

Jay possess an innate entrepreneurial spirit and is the ultimate utilitarian for any endeavor - immersing himself in the technical and operational details; willfully committing the time, energy and resources needed to fill the gaps. He approaches projects with a selfless humility and a sincere desire to offer the absolute best of himself - always seeking to improve on his already substantial talents and gifting. Jay is a team-player, loyal and dedicated to the success of the team, putting aside his own interests. You can always count on Jay to help identify any roadblocks impeding forward/upward momentum, and take the initiative to research and offer potential solutions. After working closely with Jay for a couple of years, I'm confident that he will provide tremendous value to any enterprise or project, regardless of size, scope or complexity. As a corporate executive with almost 4 decades of operational and management experience, I give Jay Glasby my highest marks for professionalism, team-building, and collaboration, and offer a comprehensive endorsement of his personal and professional integrity.

I got my first guitar last Christmas (at 52!) and thought I'd take a couple of lessons to get started. I saw Bill's ad, liked what he had written (though I have to say I was a little skeptical) but thought, probably no harm in taking a couple lessons and then doing the rest on my own with free YouTube videos. Well, here I am, almost one year and 52 lessons later, playing guitar like I never dreamed possible! And no YouTube in sight. Nothing but Bill Twilde's exceptional guitar teaching and mentoring. You know, you come across true teachers like this once, maybe twice in your life. I wasn't even sure I could form a single chord with my fingers. But because of Bill's gentle, intuitive guidance, I learned I can do more than I ever thought possible! Ok, I guess I'm gushing now but it's kind of hard to stop. He's really that good. Go see him play out somewhere in the meantime, and imagine taking lessons from someone who is also that great a performer. Been an awesome experience for me and can hardly wait to start year two!

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.

After a great stint of piano and violin lessons, we just began with Johnny Walker, Aida's strings teacher, to start my son on cello. We are so impressed with him - he knows HOW to teach, asking questions, guiding my son to think and understand rather than a mere demonstrate-and-repeat style. My son immediately took to him and can hardly wait between lessons for the next. Thank you!

Carey’s talent as a teacher does wonders for bridging the gap between music theory and music performance. I went into lessons with only a very basic knowledge of music theory that I hardly was able to apply to guitar, but his lessons taught me how to play in a way where I can either explore the musical depth of the tune or simply jam, comfortable that what I’m playing will always sound good. It’s broadened my abilities as a musician without taking away the simple fun of playing guitar, something that is invaluable in any teacher.

John Kunu is flexible in his approach to teaching, he brings many styles & skills to the keyboard, and he is willing to teach to what the goals of the student are rather than a regimented steps approach. John has been my daughter's piano teacher for several years. We are a musical family so it was important to us to choose a teacher with the depth in classical but also the breadth of knowledge in contemporary pop music, in order to keep our teen engaged in what she was learning. John's flexibility to teach to her interest areas while still making sure she mastered foundational skills and repertoire are rare in a piano teacher. We love that he weaves both classical instruction and improvisation so that a student is comfortable playing a piece of Bach as well as the latest songs on the radio. This has kept the learning fresh and relevant. But the greatest thing of all is when we hear our daughter wander over to the piano and just play -- she sounds beautiful and it is utter joy hearing your child make music and know that she will have this for a lifetime.

Pete is an outstanding teacher with a fine grasp of both music theory and performance. He tailored his lessons to my learning goals and was able to adapt his teaching style to what I needed to improve. My lessons with Pete greatly improved my playing, my understanding of music theory and my love for music. He is a wonderful teacher and I heartily recommend him for anyone interested in moving beyond the basic chords and understanding how music and the guitar really work. Cheers, J in VA

I've been going to 7DrumCity for almost a year and really enjoy going there. Not only is it a good place to start to learn how to play drums, but it's a cool spot for experienced drummers as well. It's filled with drummers and other musicians. What better place to meet and connect with other musicians? It's nice being able to bounce back ideas and questions with other drummers. Maybe you have a question regarding in ear monitors or particular drum heads or mics, whatever it is, it's nice being able to ask other drummers who regularly gig, tour, and record. I took lessons long ago when I was a kid and I've missed being able to just sit down and talk drums with someone. In terms of actual lessons, my view is that you're never too old or experienced to learn new beats and styles. It can be very easy to get set in your ways style and technique wise. I think it's healthy to try new things and get another drummer's perspective. All of the instructors are well qualified to teach, no matter your skill level.

Our teenage daughter started with Yuki several years ago, uncertain if she would last more than a few months. Since then, the lessons have been going so well that we have bought a new piano. In fact, I (her father) have started taking lessons with Yuki as well. Yuki is very friendly, patient and a great teacher. Highly recommended.

Ron is well versed in music theory, rhythms, chords, scales, and basically all musical concepts for beginners, mid-level, or even professional level piano players. He relates in a "down to earth" manner, that is easy to understand and apply ! Keep up the good work Ron !! I even received personal calls, to help me improve my playing. I was an absolute beginner, when Ron started helping me, and I didn't know what a chord or scale was, and now, for the last 4 years, I have been the "House" pianist, at a luxury hotel, playing for weddings, corporate events, etc.!! (I would play for FREE, but the hotel is paying me to play...I can't believe it !! I am learning everyday, and I thank Ron, for giving me the foundation tools, needed to learn, to play the piano.
