What Our Students Are Saying

‘’Marine clearly put a lot of time and effort into designing Online Rock Lessons. I'm a new member but already have benefitted greatly from the instruction and attention to detail. The interactive experience has been intuitive, making learning and practicing more enjoyable. One of the challenges I struggle with is maintaining accurate timing, especially when playing complex rhythms and faster tempos. Marine does an excellent job of focusing on the details, demonstrating with helpful camera angles and effective fingering suggestions. I also appreciate Marine's ongoing encouragement and reassurance that it's ok to take your time to gain proficiency with challenging lessons. I still have a long way to go, but I feel like I'm in the right place to learn how to play well in the long run. Thanks, Marine! Best, Jim Brown’’

Peter Keys

Peter Keys has been rocking the stage and studio for almost 4 decades. His piano and keyboard work can be heard everywhere from the Southern Rock legends Lynyrd Skynyrd, the outrageous 420 Funk Mob featuring George Clinton, to the Hip Hop genius of Yelawolf, and countless other indie bands and artists.
From the Bay Area psychedelic blues scene, to the Motown sounds of Detroit, and the urban bounce of hip hop, to the southern rock and roll of Atlanta and Nashville, Peter has developed a style of playing that is unique, yet familiar within many genres of popular music. His hybrid of Funk, Blues, Soul, Rock and Jazz chops cover a wide spectrum of sound, and his years of experience on stage bring a presence and chemistry that is rarely achieved.
