My son is three lessons in with Doug. He has enjoyed them. Doug explains things to him, jokes around with him, and keeps the lessons fun. He understands that my son is a beginner and focuses the lessons accordingly. We are pleased with the instruction.

David gets it. He understands what your needs are and designs personalized exercises in order to help you reach those goals! He challenges me. I want to know what things I am doing wrong and understand the mechanics behind my errors and the tactics in order to get better. David is good at expressing those things in order to help you understand your voice and the different factors that are affecting your voice. He is extremely capable and very flexible. For this reason, I definitely recommend him as an instructor for anyone that is searching for a good vocal instructor. Worth the $$.

I absolutely loved taking lessons from James. I was just coming off of a long break from acting when I found him, and I’m so thankful that I did. He gave me the confidence boost that I needed to push onward in my training. Since he has experience in the industry, he was able to tell me (truthfully) what I need to expect when my career takes off someday. That aside, we read through screenplays, did some accent work, improved a bit before every class, and talked about the power of positivity/confidence. I learned a little bit of everything from him. If you’re looking to get started on your path to an acting career, James is definitely your guy! He’ll do whatever he can to prepare you for your crazy journey through the industry.

Excellent teaching style! My son has learned so much in the past year, in how to master the drums, more than ever! Obviously, Murray loves what he does and is at the master level. My son gets so many compliments whenever he plays. Murray is just a caring, compassionate, and decent person.

Murray has been the Best Drum Teacher EVER! I have been through 4ish teachers and when I found Murray he helped me be able to play for my church! He will teach you multiple kinds of rhythms, beats, songs and grooves. And he has such a good attitude through every mistake I make! If you want a drum teacher who will teach you everything he can, and maybe some stuff he doesn't know, then Murray is the instructor for you!

Murray is a fantastic instructor. He has taught me so much about drums and music. Thank you!

Patient and flexible, moves at a pace that challenges you but doesnt push too hard which is a delicate balance!

Thank you!

Michael is a stickler for doing things right, but in a nice way. I feel that his mode of teaching is best, because it builds a solid foundation for further learning.
ELLIOT
After a brief intro, Mike explained where're going with his lessons. I was having some problems getting my fingers near certain fret areas he wanted me to work on, so he very kindly placed some colors tape where I'm to put my fingers. That helped a lot. Been practicing an hour per day, & I'm getting a bit better daily. I've got a long way to go, but with Mike's help I'll get there. ELLIOT

Taking lessons with me will help you at whatever stage of learning you are and in whatever direction you wish to go.

"Kevin asked pertinent questions about my background and used that information to tailor the first lesson. He went beyond the scheduled 30 minutes to provide a complete and coherent beginning to my studies: the extra time did not upset my schedule and I appreciated his going beyond to get me off to a good start. Kevin had a lot of stuff to present yet allowed me to interrupt with questions, which he knowledgeably answered. His personality is relaxed and friendly. Observing him with another student before my lesson, I saw that he offered criticism considerately.
My first lesson was a good experience (4 stars). I don't know if he is the best ever (5 stars), but he must be darn close."

"Sean has been teaching my 10-year old son percussion for almost two years. Before covid, my son had lessons in-person. Since covid, my son has been doing lessons online. Sean has done an amazing job teaching my son in-person and online.

Sean really knows percussion. I've witnessed this both during lessons and when my family watched him perform with the Lone Tree Symphony. Sean is wonderful with kids. Although my son has attention issues, Sean is extremely patient, and he is able to efficiently redirect and focus my son. With Sean, music lessons are enjoyable. He has taken the time to get to know my son and how my son learns. I feel like the lessons are tailored extremely well for my child's abilities. Best of all, Sean is just a wonderful person. He's easy to talk to and has a great sense of humor. My son looks forward to his lessons with Sean each week. You won't find a better percussion instructor!"

"I have been taking music lessons of various types in and outside of school since elementary school and have never had a teacher who introduces concepts quite like Mr.Fuhrman. Things that I have struggled with ever since they were introduced; especially regarding rhythm/counting have become incredibly simple- as they should be! My progress regarding percussion (which I've been working with for over 4 years) has increased exponentially since working with him. Not only will he highly recommend essential practice, but he's willing to give you various strategies to manage time and to be able to fit the practice in. I've had music teachers (all of whom were very competent musicians) telling me to practice since the second grade, but no one's ever set aside some lesson time to discuss how to fit it in. I am a beginning music teacher myself and have already implemented some of the concepts he has taught with my own students. He's not only an incredibly skillful musician, but he is an amazing teacher as well. You won't regret doing lessons with him."
