Learn Piano or Guitar

After my live performances, people often tell me they regret not taking music lessons or that they wish they'd taken lessons for a longer period of time.

Learning to play a musical instrument is extremely rewarding, but it takes a certain level of commitment.  The most effective way to develop your musical abilities is to hire a weekly music instructor to:

  • set goals and help you reach them

  • guide you to faster improvement

  • help you learn to play the music you love

  • offer support & encouragement

  • make learning less solitary & more enjoyable
