Testimonials

Kayte L., Violin Lessons

“Prof. Lance was right on time, as I was. He made me feel comfortable & important. He also was quite

amusing, in that he made me laugh & not feel so serious. This is a dream of mine to do, so I'm ready

to go full speed ahead!!!”

Kristie I., Tuba Lessons

“Everyone was very professional. The rates are great. My son came away from the lesson with more

confidence.”

Teresa W., Piano, Drum, Viola Lessons

“My son takes piano lessons from Alison. We absolutely love her, she tailors the instruction to how

each child learns best and keeps each lesson interesting. My son looks forward to practicing and his

next lesson, which is a testament to Alison and her program.”

Catherine V., Acting Lessons

“Friendly, honest, informative on in’s and out’s. A lot to offer.”

Nancy D., Trumpet Lessons

“Through an online site, I was quickly matched with Strand Studios, and a teacher promptly contacted

me. He is Prof. Chris Lance, and my 12-year-old son has really taken to Mr. Lance's style--fun, but

firm. Mr. Lance is dynamic, an extremely talented musician, easily contacted via text, and has high

expectations. My son and I are both very pleased to have found Strand Studios and Mr. Lance for

trumpet instruction.”

Teresa C., Banjo Lesons

“Teacher is understanding and patient.”
