Reviews from Our Players

Artistworks is as close as you can get to personal instruction with musicians and other professionals at the very top of their game. I don’t know how some of the busy, concert class performers find the time to give such detailed and student specific video feedback. Personally, I have been thrilled to be able to have constructive feedback from a Jazz guitar legend. Highly recommended.

Reviews from Our Players

Excellent teaching and feedback. I'm impressed about how accurate my teacher can nail my technical and musical challenges from my submitted video without being in the room together with me. Best technical teaching I have had ever. My piano playing has improved.
