I have work with Bryan before he gave me drum lessons very skilled and detailed , easy to understand I would definitely recommend any student that would like to better their skills to Bryan lash
My daughter loves her guitar lessons with Scott, they are getting along well :) Excited about what lies ahead :)
Jason is an outstanding drum teacher. I have been taking lessons with him for a year now. He has taken me from a complete music beginner with no discernable rhythm to the point where I can read the music, HEAR the time of the music, play all kinds of neat rhythms and play my full drum kit along to songs. Jason is organized, passionate and focused on making sure you become the best drummer you can be.
We hired James to teach 2 of our children piano lessons and and we have been thrilled with him thus far. He is professional and motivational and our children (both in middle school) have greatly enjoyed working with him. I would highly recommend James!
Ed has been giving my son Jack drum lessons for awhile now and Jack is really into it and really likes Ed's style of teaching. Being a drummer myself I will say that Ed has a way with kids to get them to learn and enjoy it all at the same time. Thanks Ed.
Max is a really good teacher!
Chris is a dedicated, creative drum teacher who knows his stuff! My 10 year old son loves learning with him, and has made steady progress since starting lessons about 6 months ago. Chris emphasizes developing good habits from the start, which has given my son an excellent foundation on which to build. One thing I really appreciate about Chris is that he's both firm, and totally supportive and encouraging. He also has a great sense of humor! I wholeheartedly recommend hiring Chris for drum lessons.
Outstanding guitar instructor! Jacob is very patient and easy to get along with. He's a fantastic musician and sincerely works to make sure that I stay interested and continue to get better. I would highly recommend him as a guitar, bass or drum teacher to anyone looking for music lessons!
I am super excited and really enjoying my lessons with Matthew. He gets to play with certified rockstars and when he's not performing -I can actually get lessons with him. He has music lessons very streamlined and breaks down things into smaller bite sized pieces I can absorb one piece at time & at my own pace. I love it. Lets Rock Out. I've heard that they call him "The Music Whisperer", I can see why. Thanks Matt -
Awesome! Great teacher and great vibes there. See drastic improvement in playing and discipline already! Highly recommended!!
Josh has filled in on drums for my band, Broken By Clouds, on numerous occasions. He's always punctual, prepared, proficient and probably quite a few other words that don't start with the letter "p".
Love this school! It's been great experience for both of my kids. We've been taking piano and guitar lessons for last 4 years
Heidi has provided music lessons (clarinet, sax, voice, recorder and flute) to my children for the past six years. Heidi is a skilled and versatile musician, and has shared her love of music and technical abilities with my children. She is professional, punctual, and an outstanding music teacher. She has also become a friend to our family! She encourages my children and motivates them in music and in life! She goes above and beyond, challenging them with new pieces and goals. Every year she and my daughter organize a family recital which has become a holiday tradition. I highly recommend Heidi!
Storm is passionate about his work and tailors his lessons to the individual needs of our children. We appreciate his enthusiasm and empathy in working with young children on two different instruments each, who each have different styles of learning.
Keith is friendly, knowledgeable and demonstrates patience while teaching guitar to a 7 year old beginner. Our son is having fun learning to play and we like the convenience of having the lessons in our home.
Exactly what I needed. Helped me set up a new drum kit and give a family lesson, most importantly for the kids. Really great to work with and very happy I hired Denali.

Warm regards, Glenn Thilman Testimonial: "My son started playing drums when he was 15. It was his first experience playing an instrument. I thought he was a typical teenage boy wanting to be in a rock band and figured the interest would die, but somehow, Glenn got him hooked and he fed that interest and developed my son's talent. Over the three years of lessons, his skill and confidence grew quickly." -- Lisa (Sept. 28, 2011)
