Introduction: My name is Charlie Akers, and I am a local musician who has been professionally teaching and playing music for over a decade. My experiences in both performing and teaching has solidified my belief that music is one of the most valuable and rewarding hobbies one can pursue in their lifetime. Being a parent, you want the best for your child. Not only do you want them to grow and develop in a healthy and intellectually stimulating way, but you want them to be happy and full of positive self-esteem. Music education is the perfect vehicle for accomplishing these things. Not only is it intellectually and analytically stimulating, but it is truly fun and rewarding. I have worked with many children of all ages, and their parents have reported a very positive response since beginning lessons. If you take a look at statistics regarding the positive impact of music education, they reiterate the same point: music is a fun and rewarding life-long hobby that has a multitude of positive side-effects. I would be honored to be a guide for your child in their musical journey. And those of you who are a bit older who would like to start your own journey, the same applies! I look forward to hearing from you!

I have been working with Charlie for about 7 weeks now. I’m very excited with how far I’ve come since my first lesson. He has me learning a lot about the guitar as well as getting me to play songs I enjoy, which helps me stay interested in picking it up! He is very patient and tells me I’m doing well, even when I’m getting frustrated with myself, which is often LOL .

Charlie is an excellent teacher! He is very patient and keeps you engaged. I had absolutely no musical background before learning how to play guitar but Charlie was able to simplify and personalize the lessons for me, I was able to play after the first lesson! I highly recommend him, he’s a skillful musician and an amazing teacher!

For the first 2 months lessons have been great with Charlie. We have spent a lot of time learning the why behind the how which has helped me tremendously. I enjoy our lessons and have grown leaps in a short amount of time. You can tell her enjoys teaching and is very responsive to questions outside of class. I would highly recommend.
