I took lessons for 7 years and then took a very long break. As an adult, I was apprehensive about picking up lessons again and I couldn't be happier! Michael is extremely knowledgable and is very passionate about teaching. 10/10 would recommend!Nov 4, 2019Verified
Just started my four year old granddaughter taking piano lessons from Dr. Michael Guida. She has taken three lessons so far and we are so impressed with Dr. Michael's patience, knowledge, professionalism and kindness.Mar 22, 2019VerifiedDr. Michael Guida's Piano Studio's reply
Thank you William- Piper has been such a pleasure to work with. Looking forward to more!
Michael was the best piano teacher I have had. As an older student he helped create a plan that was interesting and doable. He is very patient and low key. His personality is low key and he really tries to make everything down to a scale or chord progression interesting and understandable. I enjoy my lessons greatly and look forward to more.Mar 26, 2019VerifiedDr. Michael Guida's Piano Studio's reply

I have recently started learning piano, I am very happy & impressed with Michael. He makes everything so easy to learn. He is truly amazing & his passion for music is infectious. I enjoy my lessons greatly & look forward to more!Jun 8, 2019VerifiedDr. Michael Guida's Piano Studio's reply
Shweta, thank you so much for your very kind review. I’m really happy that you’re enjoying your lessons. Teaching piano to students who are so eager to learn is such a pleasure!
I have had one lesson with this professional and I can’t express how impressed I was with him. My son has ADHD and he was able to keep him focused and engaged during the lesson. My son walked out with a positive experience and encouraged to continue learning. I would highly recommend him and his service.Jun 10, 2019VerifiedDr. Michael Guida's Piano Studio's reply
Lisa- what a fun first lesson with your son. Thank you so much for your amazing review, and I look forward to continuing!

- What education and/or training do you have that relates to your work?I am a Doctor of Musical Arts, and I received my Degree from the University of Texas at Austin. I have studied piano with concert pianist Anton Nel, and studied the pedagogy of piano with professors Sophia Gilmson and Martha Hilley. There, I learned the proper and professional techniques of teaching piano at all levels.
