So I usually don’t leave reviews. But God has used Kevin to help improve my skills in keyboard playing. In less than 3 months with and average of an hour lesson a week. I went from only feeling comfortable in playing in 2 scales to playing in 5 of the 7 scales. Also I didn’t realize how bad my rhythm was but once Kevin began working with me I made major improvements. I’ve also learned to play fundamental chord progressions on the major scale. Kevin listens to what you want to accomplish and works alongside you to accomplish this. He is also kind and very well skilled. Needless to say God has used Kevin to help me and will continue to use him to help me. So what are you waiting for? Please book worth every penny

I have been taking singing lessons from Kevin for 5 weeks. He appears to possess a legitimate love for music as well as the understanding that I am looking for someone who can teach me the fundamental elements of music. I don’t just want someone to tell me how to rearrange a song. I am looking for someone who will offer me the “how to” from the bottom up. I suspect I am one of his more difficult students. I am older, never done anything musical but have always wanted to sing without frightening people off. He is patient, an excellent communicator and seems to understand my quest. I always enjoy my hour with him and walk away wishing I could afford more lessons. I highly recommend you give him a shot.

I’ve been taking lessons from Kevin for about 2 months. Before that I’d been kind of aimlessly playing around with guitar. I was playing by myself for about 20 years and basically had no timing and rhythm. I’m not a funk master yet but Kevin has given me tools that have greatly improved my timing and for the first time actually believing that I’m going to do this. Thanks

Russ is a straight up musical genius that has decades of experience playing the guitar. He will make you think of music in an entirely different way and his unique approach to the guitar makes learning so much easier. Definitely worth it!

I have lived in and worked in and breathed recording music since I was a kid. Back then, it was a big deal. You needed two inch tape and a half a million dollars of gear.

Now I have a way for even beginners to do the unthinkable: start recording at their the very first session with just a three-piece studio using Ignite software, a laptop and a small controller. This is not just dragging loops around. I mean real recording. Let's talk!

RANDY L. Teacher / Musician / Producer Are you an adult who always wished you could play or sing? Or a homeschooler who wishes you had music for your child? Do you wish you or your child could just sit down and play the music you feel? Old boring piano methods? No way. You shouldn't hav

Randy does a great job helping you know what you can change to improve your speaking / teaching voice AND helping you know how to make those changes!

I highly recommend Randy! He is very down to earth and very patient. He isn't condescending and he helps you know what you can change without making you feel like an idiot.
Dave
I needed to work on my public speaking and presentation skills, and received that and so much more from working with Randy. Randy is an excellent teacher who's just plain fun to talk to. I looked forward to our sessions each week, learning how to speak more efficiently and how to breathe properly. I was hoping for a way to improve my presentation skills, but Randy also taught me lessons that apply to everyday breathing and speech. I can't recommend Randy highly enough, and I can't wait to work with him in the future.
Stacey W.
I was a shy singer, imitating others, and knew I wasn't always hitting the right notes. Randy helped me find my "true voice" and understand intervals so I can sing with confidence - and have lots of fun!!!

After years of performing in the studio and on stage it was only natural that she start musically directing and producing. With production comes recording after recording. Francesca now runs ProTools and Login in her studio daily and will show you the quick path towards recording your demo. Francesca has been professionally recording since 2000.

About Francesca

Alumnae of CSULAs music department with an emphasis in classical voice and guitar, Francesca's skills cover a vast array of information. With a background and formal education in opera and "the classics", Francesca is equally comfortable on stage with a chamber orchestra as she is with a rock band.

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!
Ashley
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.

Great instructor. Friendly, easy to understand, talented and can teach piano, theory, composition, etc.
Susan
My 10 year old son loves playing little riffs on the piano but really didn't want lessons for fear it would be too much like school. Peter has been awesome about tailoring the lessons so that my son can choose the Music he likes and move forward from his place of interest. Peter is a skilled and gifted pianist, and my son is totally inspired to keep playing and put in the work to improve.

"Milton has been a really good fit for our son, because he is easy-going, knowledgeable and always comes ready to teach something new. His relaxed style suits our household without seeming unprofessional, and he is extremely encouraging. These lessons all started during a rough medical situation for our son, and Milton just rolled with it, making sure our son created music and didn't focus only on his health. It also gave our son something positive and creative to work on, making him feel less like an invalid and more like a musician. Overall, we have been so happy with Milton and would highly recommend him to anyone."
