Great instructor/mentor. Patrick and his team have a detailed progress plan which tracks the areas you're currently working on, the progress you've made and goals you're working towards. After just a short time studying with him, I had corrected 90% of my bad habits and have gained the confidence to perform in public! All lessons are recorded which is great for listening to your own singing as well as reviewing tips or directions he had given you. Overall - highly recommended

I am looking forward to continuing music lessons with David. I met him for the first time this week. I know that he will be able to achieve my goals. I was looking for a teacher that specifically can teach sight singing. I am more than confident that I'll be sight singing very soon. David is obviously is genuinely passionate about teaching. It is a career for him not just something done here and there. I'm lucky to have met him.

Awesome teacher, he just jumps right in with you. Our first class I learned the basics of drums, names of each, some drum rudiments and then we went through some songs I liked and played along with the music. The lesson was fun, Mike is super easy going and provides lots of good feedback.

Bass lessons with Dom are amazing! He takes great care to patiently teach me music theory. His lessons are well-paced and informative. He is encouraging, skilled, and thorough. Learning from a guitar player as skilled as Dom is truly a dream. I can't wait for the day we will truly start jamming together!

I have never taken singing lessons before. With just a couple of lessons with Mara I have noticed a tremendous change in my vocals. I am able to reach notes that I did not know existed for me, I am in better control of my breathing, my phrasing is better and overall became more confident in my singing ability. Thanks Mara!

Rae de la Cretaz is a magician! I walked into my first lesson with her seven short months ago, after many years of longing to take singing lessons and a year of procrastinating. She put me right at ease, and I got to experience her incredible store of knowledge, energy and outright passion for the human voice. When I came in, I had what I described as a "pleasant" voice, no better, no worse. I had been singing (mostly to myself) for my entire life, and for the last 18 years with a choir. The change in this short amount of time still surprises me. Sometimes when I sing during my lesson, I hardly recognize that it's me singing. There's a richness that I would have admired in others, but never thought would be possible for me. People whose opinions I respect have come forward and remarked favorably about my voice, something I didn't experience before. In the short time that I've been taking lessons with Rae, I've learned so much, and look forward to coming to each lesson. She is a treasure!

Pamela is fantastic! I've only had two private lessons with her so far and already she has helped me fine tune my voice a lot. She is truly a great teacher and knows how to guide and help you to work on both your strengths and weaknesses. Before going to Pamela I knew I could carry a tune, but after utilizing her instruction she has helped me unlock a much more refined side of my voice. Truly a brilliant teacher!

Lessons with David were great. I've been playing for more than 10 years but haven't progressed much beyond looking up tabs on the internet and playing along to the songs I like. In just a few lessons, David helped me see the fretboard as a whole and play scales and chord patterns up and down the neck. As a result, my playing is freer and I have greater comfort in moving around on the fretboard and staying in key. It was exactly what i was hoping to learn! I'd recommend David without hesitation. He works hard to understand where your playing level is at and tailors his instruction to push you to the next level.

Michelle is the piano teacher I wished for when I was a kid! Michelle is patient, enthusiastic and knowledgeable. One of the things my 7-year-old loves most about Michelle is that she lets her explore her musical creative side. Michelle has guided my daughter in composing her own music, tackling tough songs of her own choosing and in introducing instruments like the harmonica into her selections. Michelle is always upbeat and full of positive energy and as a result my daughter loves her music lessons.

I have been taking private singing lessons with Christine for about two years. During this time her coaching has opened up my voice both technically and in terms of emotional expression. We have worked together on a range of classical music, and she is a very hands-on, positive but also exacting teacher. In addition to helping build my repertoire and improve my technique, she also gives me advice about the performance business. I would recommend her 100% to anyone who loves to sing and wants to work on their technique and performance.

Christopher was awesome! I did weekly private guitar lessons with him over Google Hangouts, and felt like I really learned a lot. You can tell he really cares about his students and puts a lot of extra effort into making sure you're getting the most out of your lessons.

Josh does an amazing job teaching my 8 year old son who started with piano lessons and recently added the electric bass. Josh's method of teaching encourages the kids to pick out fun, often current, songs and gradually build upon the basics. Because he likes the music, my son has made so much progress - he's excited to go to lessons and loves practicing at home (a big change from his previous lessons). We couldn't ask for a better experience.

Jimi is an amazing teacher. His versatility and depth of knowledge, not only of guitar, but of music theory make his style of instruction completely tailored to the interests of student. Jimi is a musician in his heart and his passion for music is tempered only by his intense humanity. There are no drills, there's no yelling. There's only an immersion in music and true scaffolding of skills. Additionally, you'll find yourself laughing and learning all the same in a way that breeds a true life long love of playing. My lessons with Jimi added a dimension to my life in knowing and understanding music that is truly like a 6th sense. He enablers me to shear the world in ways I never would have otherwise. Anyone would be well served to take lessons with him--or just to talk about music with him.

Wayne Batchelor has proven to be a very effective teacher for our 13 year old son. Wayne is professional and mindful about establishing core musical tenets while remaining aware that lessons and music should be pleasurable. Our son is inspired by his teaching method and looks forward to each session. We recommend Wayne to all those who want to explore the bass with a guide who is enthusiastic and productive.

I have been taking lessons for almost a year now and have grown immensely as a musician during that time. I look forward to working with him next time as soon as our lesson is over. Like most things in life, you get out what you put in, but Glenn makes the work fun. Whether it is focusing on reading or listening skills, coordination, sticking or independence, working on specific songs, he brings his breadth of experience as a professional musician and as a teacher together in an easy going, non-judgemental manner that make learning fun. What is more, Glenn is a wonderful human being! No matter what your level as a musician, you can always grow, Glenn nurtures that growth. I can't recommend him highly enough!
