David is patient, warm and easy to work with. He turned the lessons into games and my boys loved it. He’s very talented but more importantly understands how to communicate with kids and keep them engaged.

I highly recommend Mel for fiddle. He had a lot of really good tips and was very willing to find songs that fit the kind of music I wanted to play. Highly recommend!
Ilona
I absolutely love Mel’s lessons and look forward to them every week! I haven’t played seriously in years and have developed some bad bowing habits and difficulty with pitch over time and was close to not playing anymore. After reading the other reviews, I decided to give him a try and am so thankful I did!! My bowing and intonation is improving, he incorporates some music theory appropriate to what we are learning to master the song. I can’t wait to see where I am in 6 months from now! Thank you Mel, my passion for music is returning and am looking forward to my audition in the community orchestra next season!
Hannah
I just started working with Mel and he is awesome! He really listened to my goals and the type of music I am interested in playing and he is planning our lessons based on that. He is very good at explaining things and giving examples. I look forward to our lessons. Highly recommend!

Dave is one of the best teachers I've ever had. He's extremely kind and easy to work with, and always pushed me further.

Chase and I worked together doing online lessons for guitar for a number of months. Chase is an incredible instructor. He helped me understand how to analyze and replicate my music tastes in a super effective way. His teachings on improvisation definitely brought out the best in my playing. I would highly recommend learning from Chase, whether you are a beginner or expert.
Nichole Coyne
Chase and I did not work together long because of other commitments. However, in the short time we did work together I learned a lot. Chase is easy going, highly skilled, very patient, and his teaching style is such that it fosters student confidence. I was really nervous at first, because I wasn't sure what to expect. Chase quickly made me feel at ease during the lesson. We only had half hour lessons, but that was definitely enough time to learn new materiel and make progress. I highly recommend him for guitar lessons.

My son is 7 and really seems to like Chase. He came well prepared and finally someone has started to teach him some rock songs .

I studied Music Theory since I was in High school. To some it does take a while to grasp. There is classical theory and there is also modern/contemporary theory which differ. There are music charts and scores. There is reading and writing music. There is harmony. We will learn and practice these things and get you on your way to becoming a pro.

Why You Should Learn (At Least a Little) Music Theory

I’m here to convince you that learning a little about how music works is one of the most important skills you can develop and should absolutely be part of your daily practice routine. Here are five reasons w …
