    It has matured over the years and always interesting. And best of all always full of beautiful music... As you know , music is the sound of the spheres..he knows how to share it with beauty...he IS a teacher ...👍

    Nearly everything (aside from having an amazing ear for recognizing that “one wrong note,” wrongly played in a musical score - which is his job), Harley is a find. He is easy, fun, philosophic, and passionate about finding a way for musical talent to be brought out into more light He gets that many students sell themselves short and has a way to have uncertainty or timidness turn into a confident smile. Acceptance of the student, right where he (or she) is, begets more acceptance, more playing confidence, and less self-consciousness. He believes in his students, however they are put together. He is so good at bringing students together, to believe in themselves, that I’ve long felt he should franchise his knack for teaching. Harley has been my instructor for nearly 18 years. I stick with him because I’m getting better. I stick with him because he has heart, because he celebrates life and music, because he is genuinely like a father, a brother, a teacher, a preacher, historian, philosopher, and most of all - a friend.

    With Harley’s long-time professional working musician experience, ability to teach, and patience he helps you learn to play not only music notes and forms, but to play music with feel and creativity.
