“Ulrich is a fabulously patient teacher! We enjoy the time he invests in teaching our daughter and we are enrolling our other kids in classes because of the great, positive experience Cayli has had at Velocity.”
“So, my experience is be sure to have a teacher that your kids have “fun” with. If you start out hard core with someone who “raps on their knuckles”(euphemism) they can lose interest quickly.”
“I wanted to ping you to let you know how pleased I am with G.’s progress under Tom’s teaching. Tom’s very skilled and engaging and G. is blossoming as a student – he lovs guitar and counts the days between his lessons.”
“We love velocity. The facility is always very welcoming and cheerful. My 3 y.o. Enjoys the music together sessions. I feel like it’s encouraging him to develop a love of music and even helping with his rhythm in gross motor skills.”
“Shane has been a wonderful piano teacher for our 6-year old son. He is extremely patient and has a great rapport with children. He has a great judgment and ability to provide right balance of instructions and challenges, and keep his classes enjoyable.”
“For the last 3 1/2 years Kathy Rabago has been my daughters piano teacher. She has excelled in her piano skills and abilities due to this teacher’s patience and knowledge. Thank you Kathy for all you’ve done!”
“Thank you, Velocity School of Music. Your wonderful guitar teacher, Ulrich Ellison, has inspired and nurtured our 7 year old in his love for the guitar and he loves going to each lesson. Your school is friendly, welcoming and top-notch!”
“My son is working with Abby to learn to play the cello, and we are both so happy to be working with such a talented and kind person!”
“The kids are having a blast doing music this summer with Jonathan, Sarah, and Josh. The boys tell me they wish their lessons were longer! Great teachers – just what they needed this summer- they are playing some really fun pieces. They each love their teachers.”
“Velocity has changed Dalton’s life and he has gained so much confidence and loves the piano.”
