"Our daughter has been with this institution for 3 yrs and counting. She loves dancing and it shows. We are very proud of her thanks to Dance Etc." Brian B.


​​"I took dance here for 13 years and now have been accepted into Dayton Ballet II. The training is top notch." Mikaela S.


"John Colbert has been teaching our 13 year old daughter, Emmy, clarinet and bass clarinet for over a year and we’ve been so impressed with his cheerful personality, skillful teaching methods and ability to inspire his students.  Emmy has band class in middle school, but it has one teacher with forty students, so her lessons with John have provided the essential personal instruction she needs to become a really good musician. Emmy is always delighted to go to her lessons with John and we’re all so proud of the wonderful progress she continues to make every week!”     Gabrielle G.


My son Peter has enjoyed and has greatly benefited from weekly private lessons with John Colbert for the past four years. We have thoroughly enjoyed our time with John and have come to know him not only as a suburb musician but also as a professional, flexible, and caring teacher of excellent moral character.  It is my absolute pleasure to recommend John Colbert.”  Amanda M.


Mr. John guided me in music from 7th grade through 10th grade.  We started in my second year of playing, and I was falling a bit behind in band.  He helped me to progress in my playing pretty quickly, and through his wonderful teaching, I was able to make All District Band three times and earn Superior ratings on music I thought I would never be able to play.  Mr. John would definitely have been able to prepare me for college auditions if I hadn’t moved away.  Mr. John has guided me from simple, easy music to hard, complicated music."      Peter M.


“I appreciate his patience and gentle way of challenging Peter through difficult passages and plateaus as well as his excitement during times of great growth in my son’s playing.  John’s great humility also set an important moral example for Peter; he was never boastful of his many accomplishments and experiences.  John even helped me in my search for another accomplished teacher when we moved to Delaware.”    Amanda M.“I love having Mr. Colbert as my music teacher.  I’ve taken lessons from him for five years.  He is patient, kind and encouraging with his students.  He makes me want to learn and stretch myself.  His guidance prepared me to play with the highest-level band as a 10th grader.  His dedication to teaching and his obvious love of music make him an ideal music teacher.  Not only is a talented musician himself, but he shares his talent with his students so they in turn experience the joy of music.  I’m lucky to have him as my teacher.”   Meghan H.
