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!

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.

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.

First and foremost, Georgios is an amazing guitar instructor (but read on, there is more to it). He helped me get to a great state in just two months, to a state that I couldn’t get in 15 years on my own. I have been playing WITH the guitar for around 15 years. And now I am starting to play THE guitar… Over the past decade I never got to where I wanted to, just causally played a fragment of a song, forgot the guitar for next 6 months and tried to get back to it… until the time I was able to discover a section of another song by ear. Then I would have something more important to do. The problem was that I never had a clear enough to walk. Georgios listened to me a lot. I told what can and cannot do and what I would like to do –and actualy these were what he wanted to find out before we started the classes. He planned a series of classes and “homework” to make a guitar player out of me (as much as I can be). We work once a week together, and I practice every day (even it is 10 mins –that is what he suggested –and it is a head-on advice). We work on everything, technique, getting clean sound, being on tempo, letter names, scales. But bit by bit and with just enough pressure. Never overwhelming, always enjoyable! I think I will keep working with him as much as I can (cannot foresee where/when we can run out of fuel). Last but not the least, Georgios is not only a guitar instructor, but he is a musician with two impressive degrees. And those degrees take nothing from his humbleness and friendliness. If you want a savvy and serious yet extremely friendly instructor, look no further.

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!

    I bought my husband lessons for Christmas and then again for his birthday. My husband is an intermediate student and LOVED learning from Randy. Randy was prompt in replying, his schedule is flexible, and he is a highly knowledgeable and enthusiastic musician. I would highly recommend him, and all he has to offer!
