Great teacher. He has patience and so much knowledge. Lessons are going well, I've made more progress in 3 meetings than I did in months with my previous teacher.
Jessica
My son had his first guitar lesson with Daniel and he LOVED it. He's asked me every day since if we get to go back today. This is an incredible win for me, because he never wants to go anywhere that doesn't have video games.
Kristin L.
I've been really struggling to get myself back into playing seriously. I was so nervous reaching out to ask for help, but signing up for lessons with Dan is seriously the best decision I've made! He's got a great approach, really pushes you to believe in yourself, which is huge for me!

He's professional, easy going, and easy to get in touch with, but he's also holding me accountable. Something which I definitely need! Just all around a positive experience!

I've been taking piano lessons with Jonathan for over a month now and I've been very pleased with his teaching. He's extremely knowledgeable and skilled, but what I appreciate most is his enthusiasm during lessons. He keeps the lessons fun, even when the subject matter is difficult. On top of this, he's just a cool, nice guy who I've enjoyed getting to know.
Brandon
Working with Johnathan has been a joy.

It was my purpose setting out to study music in general, not just to study an instrument but to use the instrument as a means of approaching music in the abstract. I set out to study music’s mechanics and theoretical foundations.

Jonathan is very knowledgeable and very meticulous. He has a precise and analytical sort of mind, and very strong foundations in his classical training.

To have a wealth of knowledge in one's subject is not enough, one also has to know how to teach (which is a whole skillset of its own). It is clear Jonathan is an experienced teacher. I have never felt rushed with Jonathan, he is very generous with his time. He provides ample resources for study outside of our sessions, and is quick to respond to emails. He has lent me books, sent me links to videos, and provided me with plenty of homework.

Jonathan has also been very accommodating in allowing me to have some authority in planning lessons and exploring my own interests. Particularly I wanted to study modal music and found a folk song in the Locrian Mode. We took a break from the Suzuki work we had been doing and he helped me transcribe the song and practice.

I could not recommend Jonathan enough, I am switching focus from violin to piano for the time being and will be employing him as my piano tutor, and I’m very much considering taking spanish lessons under his tutelage as well.
Ian S.
Ian Really enjoyed his lesson. Jonathan is very knowledgeable and helped Ian with his basic skills and gave him great pointers. He also gave him an outline and daily practice requirements.

Joey is an amazing and patient teacher! I had never taken lessons before so it was slow starting out, but Joey is very skilled and was extremely helpful. I continue to take lessons and will continue to for a while.
Celeste
Joey and I were in the same composing class during undergrad and they kindly offered to teach me guitar. Since I was at a beginner level, I had to learn techniques and music theories from scratch. As a result of their teaching, I was able to progress efficiently and enjoyed their selection of practices. In addition to our guitar lessons, Joey also answers my questions outside of class times, which has been extremely helpful during the pandemic. Joey is a great teacher who's passionate about music and teaching. I strongly recommend Joey to anyone interested in taking guitar lessons.

"When it came time to apply to graduate school, I wanted to express every ounce of appreciation for public health – except I struggled with transferring much of that admiration into writing. I could easily call up experiences and memories during conversation, but to fashion them into a fluid essay remained a tall task. This is where Nick really shined. We spent hours talking through these experiences with a focus on harnessing their emotional footprint. It took some open-mindedness, plus the will to resist the inertial tug of old habits, but with Nick’s help I was able to write from a place of passion for the first time in my life."

Interested in evaluating where the individual's writing skills are; what are their goals; and how to develop a lesson plan based on the age and school district requirements.
