I've been studying with Bill for years, and I benefit from him tremendously! As a teacher myself, I love how he strikes a balance between letting me set the direction for a lesson with my questions and goals but also how he is sure to focus on things that all guitar players must know to get better. I feel like I leave every lesson with lots more tools for my toolbox. Highly recommend!

I've been studying with Bill for years, and as a teacher myself, I love his approach to lessons. I always leave each session with a bunch of new ideas for my toolbox for how to approach the particular tune we're working on. Bill is the perfect balance of letting me set the direction for my lessons by telling him what is challenging me or what I want to learn and having a professional guitarist decide on and teach me the things that every musician needs to know. Highly recommend!
Jesse
Bill instructs both of my children. One (14)on bass for about a year and a half. The other (10) on ukulele for about 6 months. They both enjoy their lessons and his teaching style. I have seen consistent growth in their playing. So happy to have found Bill!

Amazing guitar teacher! Andrew is super personable, engaging with my child, and has gone above and beyond to accommodate our sometimes crazy scheduling issues.

1st Lesson --- AND I'm hooked.
Let me start with I'm a customer service snob. Andrew was responsive during my instructor selection process, our lesson planning and the lesson itself. His personality is causal and his knowledge is vast. A great combo. His audio, lighting and camera angles were excellent.

I was particularly impressed with the video snippets, notes and homework links he immediately placed in our video chat post class.

I cannot WAIT for my next class. Where is the 7 star button???

Francesca is AMAZING. As an adult beginner, I was very intimidated to start singing lessons, but Francesca put me at ease and has been extraordinary--she is equal parts brilliant singing teacher and life coach (it turns out that singing is a metaphor for life!), and I have been having the time of my life with her. She is warm and encouraging and funny while at the same time offering incisive critique. I would highly recommend her to anyone and everyone!
Aleisa
Francesca is an extraordinarily knowledgeable instructor with clear guidance and such a joy to learn from. Provided plenty of resources and truly understands my goals and how to reach them. Highly recommend!

Where do I start??? Very support. She is always there when I need her and helps being flexible with my lessons since I am a mother with an Infant and my schedule can sometimes be unpredictable. NOT TO MENTION she is always flowing with my musical curiousness and that really keeps me wanting to learn more and more !!! She’s the best!!!! I am learning so much and feeling cooler with every lesson.

If 5 stars is for Best instructor ever than Jillian is the winner! When I first started, I was so afraid of singing off pitch that I was afraid to sing! Jillian has helped me to gain confidence for singing from my heart, expressing emotion. I do not even worry about pitch anymore. All of Jillian's students are so lucky like me to have Jillian for support and guidance to make our dreams a reality!

I ADORE Jillian! She is so sweet and encouraging. When my schedule is crazy she does everything in her power to accommodate me. It is clear that she knows what she is doing. After trying to teach myself guitar for YEARS, with the way she explains things, I am already further along after just 3 lessons. She also has a gorgeous voice! I can't wait to continue learning from her!

"Super Dave

Dave instructs my daughter and son in guitar. They're both convinced they are Dave's favorite student. I believe that in itself explains why he is incredibly effective with children. He has them feeling great about music and their progress. Certainly he is an excellent technical instructor. Yes he teaches proper hand position, good tone and so on and so forth. But his ability to connect with children makes him a one of a kind instructor."
