Elaine B. says, "Dean Kline has had a big impact on my son's life. Marshall started taking guitar lessons from Mr. Dean in 5th grade. In middle school, Marshall joined one of Mr. Dean's bands, a praise band. They practiced once a month and performed a few times during the year. Marshall looked forward to every practice and enjoyed spending time with his new friends.
After learning to play guitar, Marshall took bass lessons from Mr. Dean. Marshall joined the praise band at school and continued to play guitar or bass until he graduated. He is a sophomore in college and plays in the praise band on chapel days, at Disciple Now Events and youth camps.
Both of our boys attended Cotillion and enjoyed it. They learned etiquette, dances, cell phone etiquette, made new friends and had fun at each class. Mr. Dean is organized and relates well to kids.
Mr. Dean also taught a group dance lesson at my daughter's 16th birthday party. She gave him a list of songs that she liked. He talked the list over with me. He taught them several line dances at the party and it was a blast!
One of the things I most appreciate about Dean is that he is a "gate keeper." There are a lot of great songs with lyrics that are not appropriate for kids. He was able to give Marshall a great foundation in music, introduce him to genres and artists but I didn't worry about the lyrics because I knew Dean was also protecting his heart and mind.
5 stars are not enough! I highly recommend Mr. Dean as your child's music or cotillion teacher. " Read more
