Excellent, as always!

Logan's a great teacher. She has really helped me with my playing when I decided to pick up the clarinet again after over twenty years. My upper register skills have improved by leaps and bounds. Thank you Logan!

Nicole, 9 lessons with Logan

Excellent cello tutor

Logan has been helping my daughter with cello for 4 months. She customizes each lesson to meet my daughter’s strengths and whatever she needs help with to improve her school orchestra and solo pieces. My daughter is looking forward to continuing lessons with Logan!

Radhika, 18 lessons with Logan

first sax lesson

she helped me assess my skill level and recommended a lesson book - good for 1/2 hour lesson! i liked her style and manner. she is easy going and encouraging and i will continue lessons with her

Ellen, 5 lessons with Logan

Great lesson teacher.

Logan has taught me a lot about the saxophone. I didn't think I'd be able to learn much from online lessons, but So far I learned how to play some basic notes and tunes. What I like about Logan's tutoring Is that she can adapt and go at the pace that you want. I already at the oboe and I already know how to read music. So she went straight to the things that I didn't know like how to put the saxophone together and the fingering of the notes on the saxophone.

Shivani, 11 lessons with Logan

Great lesson

My son was highly doubtful of doing an online lesson, but he said he learned more in a half hour with Logan than he did in a month in his face to face lessons. We’ll be sticking with her!

Phil, 4 lessons with Logan

She understands a vast knowledge of music.

She has mastered a number of different instruments, so she knows what basics will need to be learned to be a success. She has helped me improve with each lesson. Thanks
