Our Customers Agree…
“Stuart is a great music teacher with lots of patience.” –Amanda Channell, Parent
“When I first started searching for classes for my son, a toddler at the time, I never imagined I would find Tucson Music Lessons. I had seen a natural proclivity for music and rhythm in my son, and I sought instructors whom would tap into his natural curiosity and develop his love and skill for music. Past experiences with music lessons pale in comparison to what you have been able to offer my son. I have seen him evolve in his understanding and respect for music in ways that surpassed my expectations. Not only does he have a deeper appreciation for the music he hears, but he also understands and respects the work and passion that goes into making music. His natural curiosity has transformed into confidence, excitement, and an outlet for expression. You have taught him more than the foundations of music; you have taught him how to develop a sense of who he is and self expression. Thank you for your continued nurturing through music. ” –Rachael Helfrick, Ed.D, Parent
“Stuart is an amazing teacher, before I started getting lessons from him I had no idea what I could do musically, but once I found him he showed me how to play and brought me so much further in the music world!”–Brady Arffa, Bassist
“My 10 year old son, Ryan has gained so much knowledge and enjoyment learning the drums! Stuart has done an amazing, thorough job of teaching, challenging and encouraging him.” –Karen Martinez, Parent
“They really make the kids feel comfortable in trying out new things. They encourage but don’t push. I’m looking forward to seeing my son’s continued growth in talent and love for music. I know we will get that with Tucson Music Lessons.” –Dyan Olsen, Parent
