“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.”
