“Devin had another great lesson with Andrew today. She just loves him and feels like he really gets where she is coming from musically! She has learned so much so quickly. I can already hear such a difference in her playing! THANKS”—Christa, Parent

“My son has been with Progressive for about 6 years (lessons from Adam), it’s been a wonderful experience and we recommend it to everyone who will listen. The summer camps are a great experience and really teach the children teamwork and some great social skills! Support your local small businesses!!!!!”—Roni C., Parent

"My oldest son took guitar for 9 years and my youngest is still taking drums going on his 10th year. It has been a great experience. Barrett, our drum teacher is an awesome teacher. We love the camps too! Both my kids have been to at least 6-7 camps!!”—Kate S., Parent
