My 15 year old daughter has being "playing" with a guitar for a couple of years now. I wanted her to get some proper training and Steve is an inspiration for her. His love of guitar and music is infectious and he knows how to teach the technical side, without it becoming boring. I also grabbed my guitar and joined in. We have now set up a weekly schedule and I hope to be the dad of a serious rock and roll guitarist in the near future. Thanks Steve!

Don knows his stuff, he's easy to get along with and overall a really nice guy. He has an impressive repertoire of musical skills and a lifetime of experience in music to draw from. As far as instruments he can play a little bit of everything, he can basically teach you any instrument you'd find in a regular rock band, folk, country, pop, blues etc. He's probably most proficient on the guitar and piano but he also knows quite a lot about vocals. If you struggle with theory he does a great job demystifying some of the fundamentals of music theory that are useful to beginners. Whether you're an absolute beginner or long time musician Don will be able to help you out. Highly recommend.

Peter provided a fabulous band, The Rockits, for a huge birthday party! They played great dance party music and didn't charge a ridiculous amount. Terrific tunes and energy from everyone in the band. Really made the party fun! I will contact him for any entertainment needs I have in the future for sure.

Carey is extraordinarily well-informed in all musical styles and is very patient and good-humored as he communicates to his students a thorough grounding in musical theory. In doing so, he is very passionate about fulfilling his professional obligations to his students. In addition, he is himself an excellent jazz musician. I recommend him to any budding musician without reservation.

Scott Schoem is a wonderful piano teacher who has worked with my children for four years. He is a talented musician himself who shares his skills and love of music with his students. Scott always is upbeat, patient and encouraging. My children enjoy their lessons with Scott and have learned to play piano well under his tutelage. He varies the songs they learn from classic pieces to jazz, rags and blues to holiday music to keep practice time fresh and fun.
