High praise for Otis Read. He is a talented musician, and shares his musical creativity and teaching skills with me every Friday morning. He has done so since September 2017. Otis is attentive, patient, congenial and enthusiastic. He has innovative answers for the numerous questions I have about chords, reading music, fingerpicking—anything that comes up during our lessons. He brings himself totally to these lessons, never preoccupied or rushing through them. I am always curious, and he takes the time to show me alternative keys for various songs, styles/methods of strumming/plucking as well as inventive “moves” on the guitar. I have learned so much in the nine months we’ve been working together. Otis is also honest, no false praise from him. He challenges me weekly, making me a better player. When I get discouraged about being unable to negotiate a complicated chord or frustrated with my lack of plucking agility, he’s always encouraging and supportive. One anecdote: Several of my musicians friends,—guitar, mandolin and stand-up bass —were playing at my house recently during a big party. They insisted I play with them—I was petrified, deer-in-the-headlights intimated. I got my guitar and sat in with this talented group, and while I’m not in their league at all, I was able to handle the material and sound good. The musicians complimented me and the rest of our friends applauded. Wow! Thank you, Otis!

I had my 1st lesson with Andy last week. I learned more about music and the guitar in that one lesson than I had in years with other teachers. He truly seems to have a gift for teaching music and I'm looking forward to working with him more.

Julie is an awesome voice teacher. My 9 yr old daughter has grown to love music very much after taking lessons with Julie. Her voice has become professional and she had gained much confidence to perform solo in many concerts. I am very happy that we found Julie.

Joans is a phenomenal guitar teacher! As a weekly student for the past two years, I have seen a dramatic improvement in both my playing and technique. Tim has a knack for personalizing each lesson to the specific student's skill level, while keeping it both fun and challenging. If you are a beginner or an accomplished guitarist, your guitar skills will undoubtably improve with Tim's personalized touch and commitment to helping you achieve your guitar goals.

Our daughter, Serena has been taking music lessons since she was 5 years old. She started working with Christie about 3 years ago. Christie has transformed her into a beautiful singer and song writer. Serena was nervous and shy to get up in front of anyone and now she sings in front of huge audiences and signs up for any show she can find. Her progress is attributed to Christie's hard work. Christie recognizes my daughter's strengths and helps her find the right music to challenge and showcase her voice. In addition Christie is dedicated to her students in a way I have not seen before; she is an amazing educator and musician. Her love of music radiates when she talks with the parents and children. Christie is also very reliable, always there for lessons and diligent about make-ups. I highly recommend Christie as the best music teacher. We feel blessed to have her teaching our daughter.

Verified review

Sam is our 8 year old son's drum teacher, but he is the best drum teacher I could imagine for any aged learner.He is responsible about scheduling and a good communicator each week. More importantly, I am beyond impressed by the rapport that Sam has with all people, especially in our case, our son. He treats him seriously as a musician in the way he talks to him and when they jam together. There is no condescending attitude about teaching a little kid; Sam makes the most of every lesson and keeps him playing and engaged right up to the minute. Even more, 10 minutes after each lesson, we get a personal itunes email with a practice song or rhythm that is personalized just for our son! Summer scheduling could be a little tricky, but that worked both ways. I only hope that our rave review does not contribute to our losing Sam as a teacher, because he would be very hard to replace.

We hired Jon to perform classical guitar for our wedding ceremony. We were late in the planning stages, and hadn't spent enough time thinking through the ceremony music. Jon made a number of suggestions, and we found several selections we liked. Knowing he was experienced with previous weddings, and confident, was reassuring, especially since some of the details were still being worked out at the last minute. In the end, his playing was fantastic, and the music perfectly suited our procession, setting a beautiful tone for an unforgettable evening. Jon is an excellent musician and a true professional, and I can't recommend him highly enough.

I'm a singer/songwriter, pianist, and voice actor. Every time I work with Studio Nine, I'm completely happy with the results. The engineers there go the extra mile to make your project the best it can be. They also have all the latest equipment and gear to produce any result you envision. I highly recommend Studio Nine and will be booking sessions there in the future. DC

At over 60, taking violin lessons for the first time could have been painful. Laura makes sure that it isn't. I love learning from her. She is a gifted teacher and talented musician who knows how to adjust lessons to the individual student and encourage without lecturing. I highly recommmend her for either performance or instruction...for any aged student!
