Hi! Music is my life and passion. I believe I was born to play drums and want to give my musical knowledge to as many people as I can.
Whether you want to learn how to play from scratch, get back into it after taking time off or anything in between I will show you what to do and how to do it correctly and musically keeping it fun and challenging. Reading rhythms from snare drum to full kit and even treble and bass clef. I have you covered..I've owned and operated my own school of rock for almost 2 decades, and can teach anyone how to play. I am also a professional guitarist and bassist, so when you get to a certain level we can (and will) jam to your favorite songs. I can guide and consult you on the right gear to buy for your best progress and budget. Let's do this, I’m ready to rock!

I am a recording artist and have released several eps singles and albums. I played all bands in high

Sandi's a great drum teacher and is specifically great at connecting young burgeoning musicians and having them learn to play well together. This was especially important for me in helping me be comfortable playing in band settings which was and is the most important aspect of being a musician for me.
Emily
I just started taking lessons with Sandi this week. She was great and made it lots of fun! She made sure to gauge my skill level before I arrived, and prepared a fun first lesson for me. She is really skilled at telling how much challenge to give a student, which makes it fun for the student but also makes you want to practice and come back to learn more! Sandi is laid back, very approachable and super friendly. She’s a wealth of information on music, equipment, and even is helpful with booking classes through the website!
Kristen
This is my Second attempt at learning guitar - my first attempt with a different teacher ended before I could strum a song. Sandi’s teaching style makes learning guitar enjoyable. She teaches chords and songs and introduces music theory as you progress. Sandi also provides the encouragement needed to keep practicing even if you think you’ll never get there.

I can provide you with constructive critique as you progress in your work. This also helps motivate students to take a step back and objectively look at where they are now and how far they have come with their work. As a person who is constantly evolving as an artist myself, it is important to bounce ideas off of others to help you improve and get a better understanding on how to develop your own style with your art.

I enjoy the impact art of any kind has on society and others. Art can be used to communicate many things and in many different forms. Also art is subjective and beauty is in the eye of the beholder. Not everyone will love your art expression but it is important that you're passionate about your work.

I enjoy learning through interactions with others and the way they perceive their surroundings. My passion for art started when I was very young.

Currently I am the author and illustrator and designer behind a brand of children's products. My background ...

I’ve been teaching voice for 8 years and my students have gone on to perform leading roles in stage productions, chosen for select ensembles, gig with bands or as solo artists, and have pursued music at the collegiate level. Within the first few lessons, you'll be able to have a basic foundation for singing like posture, breath support and vocal anatomy, and as time goes on you'll be able to build on these with a deeper dive into vocal exercises and skills to unleash your full vocal potential. I specialize in classical, musical theater and pop genres, and have the following tools available for your lessons: keyboard, music stand, Bluetooth speaker, iPad with digital sheet music library. I love working with students of all ages and experience levels and I can't wait to meet you!

Wonderful first visit! Can’t wait to see what else she has to offer! Connected very well with my daughter and we are very excited for our next lesson.

For almost a year, Sarah has been my piano teacher. She is encouraging, patient, knowledgeable, and enthusiastic about my improvement. She never rushes a lesson and always takes the time to fully answer any questions I have. I have recommended her to several of my friends and co-workers, and I will continue to do so. Having a teacher who is just as pleased with my accomplishments as I am is refreshing and appreciated. If you are looking for someone to encourage you and teach you, look no further than Sarah!

Parking Lots and Poetry, Francesca's award winning album was received in 2010 to rave reviews. “Francesca’s songs have great musicality and the lyrical quality of a real poet. We come across countless artists and Francesca’s music genuinely cuts through.” -Joe Cuello, Vice President of Creative Music Integration for MTV

About Francesca

I can't write enough good things about Francesca! She is patient, kind, funny, absolutely wonderful with children (I have a 6 year old), easy to work with, and worth every cent!
I have missed various lessons (mom brain) and she has been nothing but accommodating and understanding. There are times my daughter isn't up for the lesson, and Francesca rolls with it and reschedules as she wants this to be fun not something that feels like they have to do it. She is a great communicator and always in an energetic mood. My daughter and I love her!!!!
Heather
Francesca is wonderful. My son has developed a love of learning piano and reading music. He looks forward to every lesson. I have never had to remind him to practice- he seeks opportunities to share what he is learning and is eager to share his progress with Francesca every week. She is supportive and motivating. I know she loves to develop a love music in her students by her obvious dedication to developing their love and understanding of music.
Nicole L.
My 7 year old son won't stop singing so I figured I'd put him in some lessons. She's a good mix of patient and fun while still keeping him on track. I thought it would just be a lot of scales, but she teaches him all aspects about singing/performance and uses his favorite genres to teach them. Excellent instructor!

I have always loved singing! I sang everywhere I went, was in the choir at church and even lead our worship team during Sunday mornings. I have continued to sing and it has helped me with my other instrumental playing. I play the piano which helps with the accompaniment of singers. I have had a few singing students and we have had nothing short of a good time together! We will learn music together and have you singing your favorite songs like a champ in no time!

I’ve always was a musician but only discovered my voice 10 years ago. I have gone through so many struggles to find my voice and I can help you find yours quicker than I did. I have gone through the wrong path and have had amazing teachers get me out of traps and dead ends and in return I’ve been able to help my students do the same. I’ve been teaching for 6 years now and it has been another passion of mine to see my students grow and achieve their dreams.

6 Tips For Improving Your Chess Game

Back around 2014, I decided I was going to improve at chess. I watched a few videos online about some openings, played a few dozen blitz games online, and then promptly lost interest within a week. Four years later, I decided to pick it up again and in less than a year, I had gone from 1100 to 1900 Elo rating online. Obviously, I changed how I went about my improvement! So here are the steps that I took the second time around that got me to where I am now, and some ways you can improve your ches …
