My daughter has been taking piano lessons with Carly since May 2013, after taking a year-long break with another teacher. A happy parent referred us to Carly and I convinced my daughter to give piano another try, before giving it up altogether. I can honestly say that Carly brought the joy of learning and playing piano back to my daughter. My daughter can be very shy and Carly took the time to get to know her and they have formed a great teacher-student relationship. Carly motivates her with fun music, encouraging words and makes her eager to learn, rather than look at piano practice as a chore. I am very impressed with how far my daughter has come, in a short time, with her piano playing. I have gotten to see Carly play piano (and sing!) and she is an extremely talented young woman, that any child (or adult) would be lucky to learn from. She has always provided us with good communication, shown flexibility when needed and I highly recommend her to other parents.

Jan is a great music teacher and a better person. I've taken guitar lessons with him for several years. His lessons are very casual and he is kind and encouraging. Jan mostly plays and performs bluegrass but he likes and is knowledgeable of good music in lots of styles. He has taught me a great deal of finger style blues and some traditional folk pieces in addition to flat picking. Jan develops great relationships with his students and frequently asks them to perform with him.

I've been taking guitar lessons from Paul Warren at the Raleigh Music Academy for over 4 years. In that time I've been able to go from not knowing how to play to learning and playing songs that I listen to regularly. Each students lessons are tailored to what they are interested in, with the instructors guiding students and suggesting techniques or songs that can help them improve. There are two things that really set the RMA apart: First are the top-notch artists that they are able to host for workshops and clinics. I've seen Greg Howe, Andy Timmons, Andy Wood, Chris Poland and Guthrie Govan perform and instruct, all in an intimate setting. Second are the monthly student shows. All students have the opportunity to play a song with other students in a live setting to family and friends. This is a great learning experience and gives validation to the time spent learning new techniques and songs. If you are looking to learn guitar, bass, percussion, piano, banjo, mandolin, fiddle or voice, the RMA is the place to go. I'm glad I did.

Philip was so patient and effective with my daughters. They never felt the least bit frustrated, because he always made learning the violin feel so easy and natural! Even though they only were able to study with him for a short time due to distance, they both made great gains during that time! He has a real gift for putting young children at ease, and finding how to draw out their best abilities!

I've had the pleasure of working with Billy for the better part of 3 years. Billy has fulfilled and surpassed every goal and objective that we were looking for when we brought our young daughters to Progressive Music Center. My daughters take Piano, Drums and Vocal lessons at Progressive. From the outset, Billy has lived up to his excellent reputation as the Preeminent resource for Music education in the Triangle Area by providing individually catered lesson plans along with caring, relationship-based instructors. Not only have my girls progressed musically in every way imaginable, but the program(s) that Billy provides serve as an enriching part of our lives socially and have helped build their self-confidence. We enjoy his passion for music, his experienced direction and our relationship with him has provided limitless opportunity for our family...it continues to be a great ride!

Words can't even begin to express our gratitude towards Mrs. Jeanetta, whom we credit with first inspiring our kids interest in Music! Since teaching our eldest daughter, Rachel, at the age of 4 to play the piano, who now also plays the violin; it's a family saying around here, that "we owe it all to Mrs. Jeanetta!" She was so gentle, kind and passionate in her instruction with our Rachel, that her younger brother Myles who would tag along with us to lessons, as a toddler, went on to play the piano as well. We credit both of our children's passion for MUSIC to Mrs.Jeanetta's wonderfully, loving relationship with our eldest; and even though she's miles and miles away from us; her name & profound influence lives on in our household! She's the absolute best! ~The Russell family, Alexandria, Virginia

Vernon is an excellent piano instructor. I began two years ago with half hour lessons and am now taking hour lessons weekly. His focus on proper technique, lessons, and lots of music, along with his positive and encouraging approach, have all been extremely helpful. He uses additional material and media to support the learning process (learning jazz soloing along with standards and audio comping). I appreciate that he enjoys teaching and constantly encourages his students' progress, yet listens and helps when there are difficulties. Vernon has made learning piano enjoyable and I have learned a lot.

Our daughter has progressed in violin quickly with Maria's patient training. Maria has a wonderful manner with children and encourages them to play for others even outside of recitals, which helps build their self-confidence. We are happy that Maria has been our daughter's violin teacher because she is a great role model for musicianship and service to the community.

About

I teach traditional fiddling, based in the styles of old-time players from the American South. My experience with fiddling goes back over 30 years. I have played with well-known old-time string bands, and have performed nationally and internationally. I have recorded six CDs, and for the last 25 years, I have taught private students as well as at workshops and music camps around the country. Learn to "speak the language" of fiddling fluently and expressively, play tunes by ear, and develop the rhythms and phrasing that make traditional fiddle music so distinctive. You'll learn to play tunes set in standard violin tuning as well as in altered tunings. I would be delighted to work with you, whether you will be starting from scratch, or you are an experienced player looking to bring your playing to a new level. I accept students from age 12 on up. Students under 16 must be accompanied by a parent or guardian for in-person lessons Study with me, and you'll get a lot of individual attention! I support lessons as needed with audio and video files, tune transcriptions, and help with follow up questions and concerns. Lessons via Skype: If you'd like to take lessons with me but live too far away, this is a great way to get individualized instruction. All you need is a broadband connection, webcam, and a subscription to either Skype or Google.

About

I enjoy teaching piano and violin to students of all ages and levels. My teaching philosophy is to provide excellent instruction that enables students to become well-rounded musicians. I believe in developing solid technique, rhythm, music theory, reading, and musicianship skills. In addition to these concepts, I hope to nurture not only a love of music but also to provide opportunities for students to express themselves musically and to become independent and confidant musicians.
