    Isaiah is the music teacher I've always wanted to meet. The professional and friendly approach to beginners and more advanced musicians alike along his stupendous skills in multiple instruments and singing is what sets him apart from anyone else I've been in touch with. It does not matter if you're just starting out on your musical journey or looking forward to expand your already acquired knowledge Isaiah has a lot to offer in any case. I met not only a music teacher but a great friend as well!
