After exchanging a few emails with Steve and one other potential teacher/coach, I chose to work with Steve. We have been meeting weekly for the last few weeks and the experience has been great! He is very talented, not only on the guitar but in teaching and helping me to progress. I'm an older student (over 50) who has had lessons before during my younger years. My experience with Steve so far (and I expect this will not change) has been wonderful - I look forward to the sessions and my practice is productive. His attitude and approach are supportive and encouraging. I strongly recommend that you give him a try if you are thinking about taking lessons at all.

Awesome working with Chris! My daughter has tried piano lessons twice in the past and her interests always fell off, but with Chris she's motivated to even PRACTICE without being told. I'm loving it!!

I started taking guitar lessons with Curt about a year ago. I had no previous music lessons whatsoever and felt it may be a little late in life to learn to play. Curt is very patient with beginners, like myself. I was nervous at my first lesson. Curt was able to break the music and chords down to a level for me to understand. He made me feel very comfortable and I appreciate the time he's taken to help me learn to play the guitar, which is a lifelong dream. I have highly recommended Curt to several friends.

I have 2 sons who take lessons from Jan. They had been to another piano teacher but were bored and lost interest. Jan is able to assess each child's talent, ability, and interest and tailor each lesson to keep them interested and learning. They are doing so much better! She also comes to our home and is wonderful about being flexible to keep up with our flexible with our hectic schedule. Thank you so much, Jan! Amanda

Cara is a calm and understanding teacher who really pays attention to the songs that I want to sing and my personal voice. She is patient and fun to work with. I like that she laughs when I tell a joke, or that she doesn't focus too much on me becoming a professional singer all in one lesson. She just wants me to keep improving. If you want someone laid back with a natural ability to make you want to sing, she's your girl.

I had an amazing experience learning piano here. My instructor, Sharon, is truly gifted in both her musical knowledge and teaching ability, guiding me through difficult pieces I never thought I could possibly learn. I used Living Waters Music for close to 6 years and enjoyed every minute of it ?

Tonya Spears, Piano Lessons

Tonya is one of the best piano teachers I have personally worked with. I have worked with a handful of other piano teachers in the past, attempting to learn the instrument, and several teachers have either gotten irritated with me and said that I did not try, or did not have the patience to try and teach me the right way, and stopped teaching me. Tonya was good about being both patient and helpful at correcting me with a multitude of errors I experienced in my time as her student. She was also very good about moving at my pace throughout the lesson. She had a very good feel for what I could handle, and she was good about keeping up when we breezed through the fast sections and also slowing down and providing feedback when we experienced longer, more difficult stretches of a song or hand signature that took me longer to process and understand. She also has a really great background in the instrument, and she has pointed out many different examples of classical piano music and other styles and songs for the piano that I have never experienced before, which just goes to show how passionately she feels about the instrument! On top of all that, she was very good about scheduling and being flexible with communication. Because I was commuting from so far away from her town to get lessons, I often had to jump through loops with getting rides from my mom and dad. Also, with my work and schoolwork on top of it all, I had to change the dates and times for lessons with Tonya many, many times. She was very flexible with lessons and was very good about communicating lesson plans and working out scheduling, whether I used email or phone to contact her. My only personal disappointment with Tonya is that I had to so abruptly end my lessons with her. She was easily the best piano teacher I have ever had, and she has rekindled my love for the piano, and I continue to practice the work she has taught me daily in hope that I can pick up lessons again someday. I would highly recommend Tonya to anyone who wants to learn the piano, as she is a very talented musician and teacher. Great and easy to work with, and I loved the service she provided me at the reasonable price she offered! ~Tyler K.

My method is fairly orthodox -- I teach what is needed for a student to actually be able to play songs in just a few weeks. While we will learn the basic chord shapes and scales, I will also teach alternative tuning, many of which have much simpler chord shaping, enabling some popular songs to be learned even by the beginner.


I provide a complete instruction for all string instruments, bowed and fretted. I also give a complete instruction in music theory. I work with live instrumental performance groups. Composition and arranging services are offered. Fees are $35.00 per half-hour lesson. You provide the materials. My goal is to provide each student with the necessary knowledge and skill set to enable them to perform either as a soloist in their home and perform as a member of an ensemble, such as a church, neighborhood bands, etc. I can get this done in a two-year period if the student is diligent with his/her practice routine.


I've been playing guitar for over 7 years now including live performances and weddings. I am extremely versed in various styles of music including both acoustic and electric rock, blues, country, jazz, and finger picking styles and would be a great asset to any beginner or novice students. I also have a degree in education from Old Dominion University and work wonderfully with both younger and older students.


I offer music instruction including piano, guitar, vocal, performance and music theory for all ages and levels of experience. I have flexible scheduling and reasonable fees. I provide the enthusiastic and professional instruction.

We teach our students to make manageable goals for each lesson so that they can feel a sense of achievement throughout the entire learning process. The smaller goals keep the students motivated constantly enabling them to become a better musician. By focusing on the process of learning, students are learning a set of skills that will enable them to learn pieces quicker and allow for a more rewarding end product. They also are able to apply these learning skills to many different areas of study, which enhances their personal growth. Through SK piano academy, we hope to create an enjoyable learning experience and share what we love most with everyone.


I am a voice talent, instructor and coach, particularly in the musical theatre style. Audition techniques and acting coaching are my specialties.

I try to give people the best experience possible by making things as simple as possible.


I am a father of three who loves to share the most amazing gift in the entire world with anyone who's wanting to learn how to use it: the gift of making music. I offer guitar lessons for beginners at a very fair price! I also am a songwriter and can write custom songs for you. Impress your girlfriend; pay respect to a lost loved one; get some things off your mind and into a memory that you can share with the world forever!


I can give the best of both worlds in my music lessons by combining an intuitive, ear training based approach with a strong foundation in music theory. My hope is to teach my students the skills they need to keep growing as musicians long after their lessons cease.


I am a piano, cello and music theory teacher. I have a BA in Music (Cello Performance, Minor in Piano) earned from a music college in Russia. I am highly professional. Since 2010, my students participated in over 25 recitals and concerts at College of William and Mary, Crosswalk Community Church, King's Way Church, Tabernacle Baptist Church, Greenfield Senior Living, Patriot's Colony, and many other venues. My students also participated in The National Federation of Music Clubs for the last 4 years in a row. All of them received superior rating, and four of them already received Golden Cups. I have been judging piano solo events for the last 3 years. Our recent performing project was playing in the Bard's Market at the Virginia Shakespeare Festival. Three of my students did an exceptional job entertaining the audience by playing a classical piano repertoire. I also provide wedding/special occasion entertainment (cello, piano, and violin) as a trio, duet, solo in any combination.


I am available to teach bass lessons (electric or upright) at any level, beginner to advanced. I am a 5th year Music major at CNU, and will soon be attending graduate school for a master's of Music in Jazz. Please contact me, and we can schedule a time to meet and assess your abilities to see how I can best help you if you choose to do the lessons.
