Mage is an incredible music and guitar instructor. Her musical expertise is incredible and she can teach in nearly any style. You want to master the six strings, call her.
Excellent attention to the finer points of guitar playing, Mage easily conveys to the student what they need to focus on to achieve their goals, one step at a time. As a bonus, she teaches the written language of music, and how to transform what one reads on a sheet of music into beautiful sounds. Not too many teachers have advanced educational degrees in music, but Mage does, and this is a key point.
Mage Music offers terrific music instruction for all ages!
Ms Mage is a highly professional, extremely qualified artist who uses her knowledge to teach her students, young and old, about music. She is not just your “normal” music teacher. She is a true artist that also happens to be an EXCELLENT teacher. She has the right amount of patience, teaching experience, and kindness to help students learn their favorite instrument. She maximizes technology to excede the needs of the students and really optimizes the learning experience. I’m so impressed and so thankful. She also provides so many other avenues for the students to pursue their musical education in addition to her classes, that she really is a great resource into the world of the performing arts and music. I’m so lucky to have stumbled upon her services while doing an online search for my kids’ lessons. Thank you Ms Mage !
Mage is a gifted teacher and so good at using technology to advance my skill! I like the asynchronous learning model!

Mage of Mage Music happens to be one of those rare individuals who is truly dedicated to the “art of teaching.” I’m always left feeling inspired by her live sessions; you can’t help but learn more about music. If I could, I would give 6 out of 5 stars!

Mage is an incredible musician and teacher! In my line of work, I work with music teaches on a daily basis and I can honestly say that not many impress me as much as Mage does. She’s always improving her craft and finding new ways to engage her students. She’s a big believer in using technology and other tools to individualize her students’ learning. She loves what she does and she’s exceptional at it! I highly recommend music lessons at Mage Music.

I took Mage Music lessons a year ago and I am still reaping the benefits of having a genuine learning experience with Mage! She has patience, high skill, consideration, and compassion for her students. Very communicative and very realistic with music goals, she will meet you where you are! All of my lessons were taken online and I don’t think I lost anything out of it. I will definitely be coming back to Mage!

I’m glad I chose this particular instructor. She’s awesome, friendly and does a great job with helping me through our lesson. I chose to do online sessions and I was nervous about how it would work out. I thought it might be a little difficult but it wasn’t at all. I didn’t have any of the proper equipment for our first 4 or so sessions but she was able to work with the set up that I had with ease. So props to her! The online site is easy to navigate for looking at homework, booking lessons l, etc. She’s very thorough and helpful with providing information and answering questions and she always responds in a timely manner. It’s been an overall great experience and I highly recommend going with Mage MusicShe is a great teacher!no matter If your a new player or have been playing for years mage can help you get to the next level!

She is patient with me and extremely knowledgeable and always makes sure that I understand the technique behind each song before allowing me to move onto the next. Plus, her personality is endearing and she makes me feel heard and supported on my musical journey. I would highly recommend her to anyone who is looking for a quality teacher!

I really enjoy working with her.”

Steven: Jul 14, 2018 “Linda is currently teaching my young daughter guitar & voice. Linda has a unique style of being able to connect with her students because of her passion for what she loves to do & it shows in the progress of her students. She is patient & finds ways to communicate what she is teaching & makes it easy for students . I’ve seen great progress in my daughter from starting off slow now she has a momentum that is pretty awesome to see & it stems from Linda’s passion & ability as a great teacher !”
Eric: Jul 13, 2018 Guitar · In studio “Linda has been my electric guitar teacher for the past two years, when I got started. She has the patience needed to help me learn, and is always cheerful and encouraging of my progress. I am not only learning to play, but to read and understand music, which is a whole other language to learn! I look forward to our weekly sessions, as music, and for me guitar, has opened up a whole new world. As an older student who has always wanted to play guitar, but didn’t know where to start, discovering Linda has made that transition very seamless, and welcoming. Linda has great patience for students of all ages, and can relate to our different learning styles, all the while presenting material in a way that is easy to understand, and with clear goals in the curriculum to help me stay on track. Linda has an amazing ability to teach, and can demonstrate the necessary fine motor skills I am continually learning. I look forward to my lessons every week!”
