Drum lesson for a total beginner - and Mike was terrific: kind, reassuring, extremely knowledgable. He had me playing to Hey, Jude before the session was over. And maybe above all, he made the whole experience lots of fun.

Michelle is great with kids. Our 7-year old daughter loves her piano lessons and always looks forward to them. More important, we can hear that she is really learning and making great progress. Two of her school friends have started lessons with Michelle after we recommended her.

Barb's Continuo Home Music Lessons provided home lessons to my son. Not only was the instructor very talented, but they knew exactly how to interact with a young person to keep his interest throughout the lesson and encouraged practicing beyond the lesson. Barb is always prompt and goes out of her way to accomodate scheduling issues.

Excellent teacher, with such a broad knowledge of drumming styles. He teaches me to hear rhythms melodically, in ways that I never did before. His teaching has started to change my approach to the instrument. I highly recommend Phil's drum lessons.

Liv had the most wonderful experience with her first year of learning the ukulele. She loved her instructor and is now playing some great songs. We can't wait to continue and even get into guitar lessons as well!

I took guitar lessons for three years with Lou at U Music and the quality of instruction was incredible. Lou clearly knows what he's talking about when it comes to understanding the guitar. He provides a holistic and fun approach to learning the instrument, backed up by many years of experience as a musician and teacher. I would recommend him as a teacher to anyone from the earliest beginners to the most veteran guitar players. I'm also pleased to say that every one of the instructors at U Music is friendly and easy to talk to. I took voice lessons with Ann (which were also fun and helpful), and I've had numerous chats about music and other things with both Greg the bass teacher and Nick the drum instructor. Great people, great instruction in my experience, and altogether a great place to learn about the wonderful world of music.

We have been students of the Piano Workshop for 7 years. Mark, the director, does a great job at matching students with teachers and is very accommodating to work with scheduling lessons especially with families that have very full schedules. We enjoy the recordings done at every recital and they make a good teaching tool as well. There are lots of teachers of various disciplines so students of all musical talents can benefit at the Piano Workshop. It's a professionally run outfit that I would recommend to all families.

My 12-year old nephew has been taking guitar lessons with John for about three years now and I can't believe how much he has improved! John is patient, kind and inspiring and my nephew is always excited for his next lesson with him. We have had a couple of teachers before John but John is by far the most experienced and motivating. He also has a very structured approach to the lesson and my nephew always walks away with a clear idea of exactly what he needs to practice. I should also mention that my nephew is interested in many different types of music and John is knowledgeable in all fields, and is happy to cater to my nephew's musical tastes while at the same time maintaining an organized teaching regiment. I would recommend John for anyone, he is a great teacher all around!

Marwan is an excellent percussionist in middle eastern rhythms and music. For drums that are used primarily for drum and dance, he is very versatile and can adapt to many other rhythms aside from it's original ways of playing.

As the drummer in my funk band, Middle Blue, Mike provides both an airtight rhythmic foundation and a sense of adventure. In other words, the beat is always concrete, but never *too* straight. He's always doing something interesting or mysterious with it. Also, he's full of surprises. Just the other day, he threw a rhythmic idea at me that I hadn't heard from him, and we've been playing together for over a year. If I were a drummer, I'd be excited to take lessons with Mike.

I am not very musically inclined and decided to learn to drum because it seems like the hardest instrument out there. I am soooo glad I hired Jesse. He made it seem less intimidating and taught me how to listen to music and what to look out for when listening to music. One hour goes by really fast because its so much fun. He's a must if you want to learn!!

I have worked with Les Cleveland on several occasions and he has always given 100%. We have worked together as sidemen (backing musicians) with artists such as international vocalist “Syleena Johnson” where he assumed the role of musical director as well as with saxophonist “Mike Phillips”. He has also been the musical director for my group. When I arrived in town, I had no worries as he’d already hired and prepped a top notch host of Berklee musicians for the concert. Needless to say, it went extremely well. In addition, while in town to perform at The Birchmere with Larry Graham, he stopped through my recording studio to lay down drum tracks for my upcoming contemporary jazz project titled “It Happened To Me”. He’s on the title cut (and others) along with, jazz keyboardist/producer - Glenn Douglass, featured international saxophonist “Michael Lington” and me. Les did a phenomenal job and I’m really looking forward to this release. A top notch professional, well prepared, talented drummer, musical director and man of God that I would recommend for any performance!!!

Excellent teacher! He goes at the pace that works best for me but encourages me to go beyond my comfort zones. Great for understanding Jazz Charts too!
