I've been taking lessons since I was in elementary school. As a college student, I continue these lessons today. It is probably not fair to claim that this is the absolute best place for lessons, but only because I haven't taken lessons anywhere else to be able to make a comparison. I've stayed here 8+ years, and for good reason. The teachers are very knowledgable and they care about their students and their musical pursuits. If you desire to play a certain style or genre of music, all you have to do is ask and they will gladly help you and lead you in the right direction. This is very appealing to older students or students with some musical experience and know what they would like to do.
