Jan is a master musician and a superb teacher. Jan's technique is instruction by example rather than the standard boring scales practice etc.. He'll have you playing tunes almost immediately. He will "finesse" your efforts with music theory when and if appropriate and will not "beat you over the head" with it. This produces an altogether pleasurable learning experience and after all isn't that what playing music should be all about?? Jan instructs from a exceptional depth of experience as a working professional musician -- highly recommended.. Tom Evans

Shane is a highly talented, versatile songwriter and performer involved in several area bands. Beyond just rocking, he has a real knack for just knowing how to fit into the groove and what a song needs. He carries these sensibilities over into his studio work at Mariner, where he is able to take raw talent and turn it into a refined and well-layered mix that compliments the artists' vision. He has done both studio and live-at-venue work for bands and solo artists that I have promoted and the results are always stellar. If you are looking to take your chops or sound to the next level, this is the guy to help you do it.

Jame Easteppe is a phenomenal guitarist and musician, as well as an incredibly talented, relatable, and compassionate instructor. I have known him for nearly a decade, during which time I've witnessed how he inspires students to not only practice and take pride in their musicianship, but to push themselves beyond their own expectations of their personal abilities and limitations. My personal experience with him took place at a different studio, at which he was easily the most highly-requested teacher, and continuously had a waiting list of prospective students; our entire lesson program expanded astronomically solely because of Mr. Easteppe. One of the most powerful attributes of Mr. Easteppe is his eagerness to improve his craft and abilities in order to become a more well–rounded musician and teacher. He can teach an array of styles (as well as music theory) in a way that's easy to understand at any age or skill level, exudes great patience and care, and provides amazing support when working with his students. I honestly cannot speak highly enough of him, both personally and professionally. Any student would be lucky to learn from him.

Andy taught my son trombone from seventh grade through high school. We were so fortunate to have such an inspiring and talented teacher who went above and beyond by coming to our house for lessons. Under his tuition my son was able to achieve placements in many All Disrict bands, first chair in the Allstate jazz band and entrance to the music program at the University of North Carolina in Chapel Hill. Andy was extremely flexible with lesson times and always reliable. Andy's amazing skills ,patience and work ethic were motivational to my son and we would highly recommend him as an outstanding teacher and person .

My son has been taking piano lessons with Chris Reed since 2010. He says, "I love having piano with Mr. Chris as my teacher because he pushes me to my limits without me even realizing I am going there." We truly have been blessed to have Mr. Reed as a piano teacher. He is not only a gifted musician himself, but also has a talent in knowing how to reach his students. He is very attentive to their needs and finds a way to meet them where they are. At the same time, he gives them new challenges to push them even further. I am very grateful that he has given my child a creative outlet that he can carry with him for the rest of his life.

Steve was Great. We were running around trying to get everything ready for the wedding and Steve came in. He set up, got situated and I didnt even realize he was there until I heard this peaceful and beautiful music in the background. Steve is an excellent musician and very professional. You will not go wrong with him. We couldnt have been any more pleased. Todd and Sarah

My experience with Panos has been overwhelmingly positive. My son, who is 10, has studied with Panos for more than 5 years. Now, my daughter, who is 6, is studying with him as well. I am confident that my children are receiving the highest quality musical instruction under Panos. He has the outstanding ability to motivate and foster a love a music in my children. Our experience with Panos is that he is not only a gifted musician but a teacher as well. My children are consistently improving and, under his guidance, receiving a top-notch musical education. Panos has always emphasized excellence while, at the same time, introducing pieces that inspire and grab the attentions of my children. As a result, he is contributing to my goal of fostering a love of music in my children that will last them a lifetime. Never have I doubted choosing Panos for this responsibility.

I have used Kenni's services several time and have been very pleased with the product I got. I'm a solo artist and use backing tracks. Some of the tracks I use have fade out endings. Kenni was able to edit, add instruments and drums to all for a seamless hard endings on the tunes. I also play sax on a track for one of his clients, and Kenni played, produced, and sang on the tune. The end result was great. I highly recommend Kenni Hairston.

I'm a professional pianist and film music composer with a Bachelor in Music Composition from Canada's top institute, McGill University, Bachelor in Education from the same university, and over 20 years of experience as a pianist with certificates from the Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music (UK) and France. I can communicate in four languages and have studied under British, Russian, and Canadian professors, so my pedagogical method is a combination of the best things I learned from these schools.
