Clarinet, Flute, and Saxophone
“Really like the lesson, thanks Eric. It was nice to get a feel for your style of teaching. I was a bit shy to play, since I haven't played in ages, but I think if I had a bit more time to prepare (like I'm practicing that Scott Jopin song now) I'll feel more confident to play the song and have something to show for when we have the next lesson! Man I'm rusty! but I'll get it back eventually! For our next lessons I'd really like to have techniques or scales to do work on, towards a goal :)”

“Mr. West is very professional, knowledgable and patient. My twelve year old son actually got more out of one lesson with him than from the several lessons received by his Juilliard trained private instructor. Maturity definitely counts and Mr West has that.”
“I'm trying vocal performance for the first time, having done instrumental some years ago. Tom has been very helpful in instructing me in the various ways that voice differs from instrumental performance. As an amateur, I feel I am starting to advance in my technique. I highly recommend Tom.”

“Celeste is knowledgeable, passionate and patient. She never hesitates to try to approach situations with different methods or approaches that might get the message across. I took piano and guitar from her for about 10 years and thoroughly enjoyed the experience. She works equally well with adults and children.”
“I have been taking music lessons from Celeste for over 10 years, and enjoy every minute of it. Celeste makes you feel that you are the only student she has, such is her focus on each student. She is exacting in accuracy, while giving positive feedback for one's progress. Above all, she stresses the musicality of the pieces, so that her students really enjoy what they are working on. She teaches a wide range of instruments and types of music to students of all ages.”
