Jacqueline B.

After taking a year of virtual piano lessons at Apollo Academy of Music, I could not be any more impressed! The teachers are highly qualified, patient, and masters of piano. Upon signing up, my teacher made a customized curriculum for me that I feel is just perfect for my needs. And the best part is, with my busy schedule, I no longer have to drive anywhere and can even take a lesson during my lunch break. Highly recommend the Apollo Academy!

My lessons at Apollo Academy have been amazing- I’ve been taking lessons with Michael for around 6 weeks, and I’ve learned a TON already. If you want to properly learn how to play the piano, you won’t be disappointed signing up.

I’ve been taking virtual piano lessons with Apollo for 8 months. When I started, I didn’t have any experience with piano and didn’t know how to read music. I’m amazed at what I’ve learned in such a short amount of time! It’s been such a joy to live out my life long dream of playing piano and do so in the comfort of my own home. Thank you Michael for your kind, patient, motivating, and inspiring way of teaching. I can’t recommend Apollo enough!

I have been taking virtual piano lessons from Dr. Michael Guida of Apollo Academy of Music for one year. His extraordinary knowledge and teaching skills have helped me accomplish more than I ever thought possible. Dr. Guida is the most patient and inspiring teacher, and the virtual lessons and curriculum are the best. I highly recommend Apollo Academy of Music.

Dr. Michael Guida’s personal style, manner, curriculum, and instruction create an online environment that is supportive, creates confidence, and builds self-esteem along with the development of learning to play the piano in a non-traditional setting. He is a skilled and gifted musician who demonstrates the ability to be fair and firm with student outcomes. He can gracefully move students forward with objective feedback, individual ownership, and a personality that is engaging and fun. As a student, I have been taking classes with Dr. Guida in the online setting for several years. As an ASU faculty member, I have also taught online for the past several years as well. Dr. Guida’s techniques in the online classroom match or even exceed the training that I receive at the university level in methods of online curriculum/instruction. I would highly recommend Dr. Guida and Apolla Academy, the curriculum, approach to instruction, and the opportunity to learn piano with a twist of technology is truely exciting. Thank you, Lisa Mitchell, EdD
