Taking music lessons as an adult, i largely expected to feel the way i did taking lessons as a child. I never would have expected to learn everything from basic theory and technique to being able to compose pieces for multiple instruments within a month. Scott's approach is professional and relatable which is rare in a music teacher of his pedigree. I'am afforded an opportunity to grow as a complete musician with his ability to take daunting musical concepts and make them immediately understandable to a layman. I really do believe that whatever your musical goals are, he is a more than capable teacher. Its also worth noting that whenever i have had any questions throughout the week, he has taken the time to respond at length.

I LOVE taking piano lessons with Aleta Barber. She is a natural teacher. Although I have had years of music in elementary and high school, as well as private lessons as an adult, she has introduced me to ways of learning I've never been exposed to. I feel so fortunate to be working with her.

I’ve been studying guitar with Mary for about two months now, and I can’t say enough good about her. tl;dr: Mary will understand and support your goals for guitar playing, and she is beyond capable of helping you reach those goals. First, Mary is very supportive and cognizant of my goals as a musician. If I had a song in mind that I wanted to learn, I’m absolutely sure she would help me learn it. As a beginner, however, I don’t have anything in mind and happily play the tunes she gives me. Speaking of tunes, she has so many on hand. Every week she gives me new sheets with songs that cover the technique we work on. Mary’s extensive lesson repertoire certainly helps fulfill my goal of expanding my musical vocabulary to more artists and genres, all while developing my skills on guitar. Similar to her supportiveness, Mary is also very understanding yet insistent. As a busy young adult, on average I work eight to ten hours a day and follow a daily workout regimen to boot. While my goal is to practice guitar at least 60 minutes per day, on many days I don’t have time and fall short. Despite less-than-ideal practice, Mary accommodatingly works around the progress I make (or don’t make). At each lesson I can consistently expect help with last week’s trouble areas in addition to new material — Mary sure likes to press on. Can you blame her? There’s technique to master and songs to learn! :) On her teaching style, Mary is very creative. She customizes her lessons to the individual, and — I really like this about her — she tells me exactly what she wants to cover at the next two or three lessons. This way I know what she’ll teach, and I have the opportunity to discuss what I want to learn (e.g. scales, barre chords, etc.). With decades of guitar study under her belt, she can teach anything. By “teach” I mean make you really understand. She has countless analogies, anecdotes, and demonstrations for helping you learn or improve any technique. She’ll try things until it “clicks” for you. Teaching creativity like Mary’s is an invaluable skill that will undoubtedly help any student she has. To end on a light note, Mary truly is a spectacular musician. Her playing is effortless and always a joy to hear. She makes even the beginning things I’m working on sound musical and fun to play. Mary is a gem of a teacher, and I can’t recommend her enough.

Jeremy has the credentials and skills to teach music. But above that he is personable. Able to teach new skills or correct old bad habits. I come away from my lesson feeling uplifted and feeling that whatever talent I may have has been affirmed. I also feel that I can do anything because Jeremy believes I can Good with all ages.

We've been working with Ken since September for our 11 year old's electric guitar lessons. We've been pleased with Ken's professionalism, structure and teaching style. Our son has learned a great deal in a short time after being away from lessons for two years and enjoys his lessons a lot. Ken is a great guy to work with and the studio is a nice place for private lessons. We've had the opportunity to meet a few of his other students around my son's lesson times, and it's clear that Ken is able to teach and work with a wide variety of ages and levels. We give Ken our highest recommendation.

I really enjoy music lessons with Jacob, I've had several teachers and he is by far the easiest to work with and to learn from. He's a great guitar player and keeps the lessons fun, he also does a good job at making sure that what I'm practicing has something to do with what I'm interested in. I've had teachers in the past that did not make guitar interesting, Jacob is great, well worth the money! I'm much better than I was before I started with him.

I have always loved to sing, but was almost completely unable to sing in front of others out of fear of humiliation. Taking singing lessons with Scott has changed my relationship with both my voice and myself. I have gained confidence in my singing abilities and have even begun to sing in front of others (and surprisingly my friends and family are impressed not mortified!). Scott has a wealth of knowledge which has helped me to develop my vocal abilities to levels I never thought possible! Most importantly, Scott's presence and patience in working with me and my fears has been nothing short of therapeutic! I am tremendously grateful for his help in allowing me to be better able to express myself through singing.

My daughter has only had two lessons with Aaron, so I do not have a long term relationship to base my review on. However, I can say that Aaron was very prompt at returning my emails and phone calls . Very professional in how he approached making financial arrangements and scheduling our lessons. He provided references for me to check with. He offered a complementary initial lesson. And perhaps most important, when I pick up my daughter from her lesson she has a smile on her face and says Aaron is very nice.

Mariya was my piano teacher when I was a kid--from ages 8-18. I loved my piano lessons so much, I only stopped when I graduated from high school and moved away. I really can't speak highly enough of her skills as a teacher and a musician, or her warmth and kindness as a person. I learned so much about the piano and music in general, and I still play almost 15 years later. Thanks to Mariya I have this lovely lifelong hobby. We keep in touch a bit and I'm so pleased to know that Mariya is still teaching piano. I remember her as my favorite teacher of any subject and her lessons as the high point of my school years. She is truly a gem!

We just started our daughter's lessons but Cayce is a well organized and professional who loves her craft. She has been very helpful in answering our questions and determining our short and long-term goals. Her website is very well done and a great aid in tracking our daughter's progress, lessons, and for communication.

Holly really gets children and how to infuse them with a joy of learning music! Her musical instrument of choice is piano but when she teaches the little ones music they are gaining an opportunity to learn the foundations of music, rhythm, and most importantly the wonderful feeling it gives them. Holly is such a caring individual and talented musician whose love for music is one that she cares for this expression to move through generations. The activities, experiences, and techniques she gives students are unique and truly created from her. My daughter and I love Holly both as a teacher and human and our musical experience with her has been nothing but positive and valuable. At age 5 my daughter has a firm foundation of music she never forgets. Pretty amazing!

I have been studying Vocals with Sami for 2 years. He is an amazing instructor, he is patient, kind and a blast to learn with. Every lesson is designed for me based on my progression from the week prior. He is always available to speak even when I don't have lessons to offer additional help. Thank you Sami for helping me become a better singer.

He makes everything so clear and challenges me each week so I’m not bored. He’s professional but he also makes lessons fun! I would highly recommend him as an instructor ;-)
