Our 8 year old son has been taking guitar lessons with Justin for a year and he loves it! Justin is so supportive and helpful in writing, singing and playing. We have been so pleased with our son's experience that my husband has signed up for lessons this fall. We couldn't say enough great things about Justin!

My son has been taking guitar lessons with Shane for several years. Shane is always very supportive and encouraging which has really motivated my son to stick with it and work to get better. Shane has used a good mix of traditional "book lessons" with examples of current and classic rock songs that my son has selected. This has helped him learn the fundamentals while playing songs he knows and enjoys and has selected for himself. Finally, Shane has been very flexible as far as scheduling; he keeps an up-to-date on-line calendar that helps when schedules change. I would highly recommend Shane for anyone looking for a guitar instructor.

Nelson has been a phenomenal guitar teacher so far. Very knowledgeable and a super nice guy. Challenges me and pushes my playing, but in a very amicable way. Would highly recommend.

This is the first time my son is learning Piano lessons. He is in kindergarten and is very naughty. Carly knows how to accommodate him very nicely. She is very patient and makes the lessons more interesting and fun. My son always waits for Fridays because Fridays are his piano lessons. I will highly recommend her.

My 2 boys have been taking lessons at progressive for 8 years. My 13 year old is a drummer and loves taking lesson there. My 16 year old takes guitar, and also is in a band at Rock academy. They have participated in Rock Band camps every summer, and have loved every minute of it. It is a wonderful, creative environment to learn and hone your craft and I wouldn't have my 2 boys take lessons anywhere else.

My boys love their guitar lessons with Adam. He tailors each lesson to their personalities / music likes and is very patient. He has really inspired them to become better guitar players. He has also been very flexible with lesson time/dates as the boys schedules are a bit hectic with sports / school, etc. So glad we found Adam!

First lesson; wife and I back to back. Kelli is very approachable, has a beautiful voice and is a good match for us regarding song/music styles. We're both happy about how we're starting out; seems like a good approach for us. I already play guitar and need vocal help for song/praise/worship scenarios as well as strength for public speaking; Kelli is focused on our needs and interest.

I've only had the first free lesson/interview. Dave was easy to talk to and we had a good discussion about what I wanted to get out of my piano lessons and how he felt he could help me. He had a book ready for me to get started with and I hired him for a semester. I'm really looking forward to working with Dave who I feel will be someone whose musical knowledge and teaching strategy/philosophy will help me reach MY goals.

About

I provide multiple "platforms" for learning and creating music. Performing over 45 weeks a year, I know how to provide tools for singer longevity, strength and flexibility in vocal performance and speech. I teach piano lessons. I also have several techniques for learning to read and improvise on the piano. Additionally, my lessons incorporate music theory and ear training. As a performing musician, I am aware of physical issues that are unique to musicians, and I can provide personal training program exercises for musicians.
