    We have used MMA for a piano teacher for our daughter. The service was prompt. The teacher was excellent. My daughter is enjoying her lessons. It is so nice to have the lessons in our home!

    Jonathan responded to every question and request that I had promptly, honestly and helpfully. The instructor that he paired my family with is able to teach my 7 year old piano and my 9 year old guitar back-to-back on the same afternoon - very convenient and exactly what we need. Thanks!

    Both of my children take piano lessons with Jonathan Gaertner at Mobile Music Academy and we couldn't be happier. He makes music fun and motivates them with obtainable goals. They look forward to their lessons every week.

    So far so good! My 7 year old son is doing well with the lessons and connecting very well personally with Kyle, the instructor. My other 2 kiddos are watching from a distance and expressing an interest as well. My oldest is actually asking to do the lessons when he brother is finished practicing. We are only 3 weeks in,but all in all it looks like things are working out well. We are very pleased with how things are going.

    I was contacted almost immediately, and all email and phone exchanges were very pleasant. MMA was able to hook me up with a guitar teacher within a week, and not only has he listened to my request, my kids really like him. I highly recommend!

    Mobile Music Academy and Jonathan's desire to meet our specific needs has been wonderful. We have loved our lessons. My son has improved so much in such a little time, and my daughter has loved beginning her lessons. Thank you.

    Jonathan has taught our two sons piano since 2006. That they have continued is a testimony to his effectiveness. He is not a one size fits all teacher, and adapts his method to the ability and interest of the student. He has always been honest, accommodating and punctual. I value having our teacher come to our home for lessons.

    So far, so good. I've only had one lesson so far, but Warren has been professional, friendly, and helpful. I have already learned a lot.

Question and answer

Q. How did you get started doing this type of work?

A. I have played piano all of my life, I have taught piano for the better part of the last 18 years. I really enjoy teaching the piano but it is tough to make a good living just doing that. I also had some other parts of my personality that I wanted fulfill.

I started Mobile Music Academy as a way to fulfill those other parts (running a business) while I can do what I love.

I also wanted to make a difference in my community and I think MMA does that. We have several students that would not be getting lessons if we did not come to the home. That is probably the most fulfilling part of this.

I also get to help some of these young teachers out there who are really good at what they do but struggle to find students.

All in all this is the most rewarding experience of my life and I could not be happier.

Q. What types of customers have you worked with?

A. The most common job we do is a 30 minute private lesson for a musical instrument. We also provide 45 minute and 60 minute lessons.

In addition to the private lessons we have done group lessons and well as class lessons in some schools. We are very flexible so if you have a odd situation we just might be able to come up with a solution.

The biggest thing is that we do the driving. So, it doesn't matter where the lesson needs to be, we will get there and do it. We just need the setting to be a good place to teach a lesson!

Q. What advice would you give a customer looking to hire a provider in your area of work?

A. Make sure you use a reputable company. Use companies that do background checks on their instructors and have a lot of experience. That will give you peace of mind before bringing some random person into your home to teach you or your children.
