Excellent. I wanted to give my husband piano lessons as a surprise. Tatia was super helpful getting it all set up. She emailed me right away and then we connected by phone...so easy. The lessons are going great. Rose music group is a very professional organization.

I was nervous to play in front of a real drummer, but Danny made me feel comfortable immediately. He was kind and encouraging while giving me quality feedback on my strengths and weaknesses. He tailored our lesson to me specifically, taking into account what I wanted to work on and what he thought was important. If you want fun and well rounded drum lessons, Danny is your guy.

My son has been taking guitar lessons at Cedarstone for two years and we are very pleased with his progress. Kevin always has a way to make music fun, fullfilling, and engaging to transform the student into an accomplished musician. The collective team of instructors at Cedarstone, brings a broad set of musical knowledge and teaching skills that is an absolute treasure. I highly recommend Cedarstone for all your music education endeavors.

Verified review

Keith is the best teacher I ever had. He taught with a passion that filled the air with urge to dig into paradiddles and tackle odd time signatures willingly. Its rare to come across someone who teaches the basics with the same enthusiasm as a super enthrawling drum solo. Keith gave me tools that I carry on the gig with me everyday that has propelled my ability to work in any situation. His attitude towards drumming is emersion on a very fun level that i feel like not many teachers can convey to their students. I couldnt have done it without Keith. Late night drum hangs, to early morning double stroke work outs, to online transcribing. Theres no one better!

Prompt,courteous, and a great communicator prior to the 1st lesson. He even took time to ensure the drums were tuned prior the 1st lesson. Very professional.

I have worked with Matt Cummings for 5 years, he was my band instructor and personal bass teacher. He was always very lenient with style and song choices; he would always be there to help learn new songs, or even write songs. Matt is a very reliable person whom I could trust to be on-time and respectable. Through the countless hours spent with him I have become very close with him. I recommend anyone and everyone to try lessons form him. He is a extremely talented person and I think that he can help everyone get better.

I've been taking base lessons with Jordan for the past 3 years and have found that the half hour I spend a week is always worth every penny. Jordan is patient, talented and always professional. My son also takes piano lessons after my session and he enjoys it also.

Verified review

After trying to teach myself how to play drums over the last 12 years and going nowhere, I realized I needed to get some professional help. Stephie G. has been very patient with me while helping me unlearn some bad habits, as well as teaching me how to read music! She is able to take her knowledge of drumming and percussion and present it in a way that I can understand. She is also good at giving advice and challenges that have helped me improve my drumming skills, thus far.

Verified review

Noah is a great teacher! His sunny attitude takes the frustration out of learning new skills. His amazing skills are matched in measure by his amazing patience, and he has a knack for explaining technique in ways that can be easily grasped by students of any level. Spending time with Noah for lessons is a joyous occasion, something to look forward to, that leaves me with not only improved musical skills, but an improved outlook on life. I highly recommend him as a teacher.
