I would recommend anyone to Michele for piano lessons! Michele is always encouraging and patient. The flexibility she allows if I ever need to reschedule is a huge plus. Amongst all the other qualities you're probably looking for in a piano teacher, she's also hilarious and so easy to talk to! I look forward to my lessons every week. Pick Michele, you won't regret it.

I am a beginning adult piano student. She has helped me learn many basic skills and I can see the improvement I have made each week. Michele is very knowledgable, positive, and enthusiastic in her approach. Her love of music and teaching really come through. I highly recommend her as a piano teacher. She teaches piano lessons from her home.

I've been attending piano lessons with George for a month now, and they have been excellent so far. As an absolute beginner at the piano, I was slightly worried about taking lessons with a teacher. However, George immediately made me feel comfortable in his home, and began by understanding my goals as a student. George has an in-depth knowledge of music ranging from pop to jazz to classical. Beside his beautiful sounding upright piano, he has several bookshelves crammed with sheet music which he consults several times each lesson. In every lesson, our conversation leads him to a book or notebook he has stashed away where he produces a piece or note that we discuss. George strives to individualize his teaching style to accommodate the needs of his student. I was particularly aware of this after he told me a touching story about why he needed to cancel one of our lessons: A student of his, a young boy, loved the music of Star Wars, and wanted to learn to play pieces from the famous scores. George expressed interest in learning more, wanting to share in the excitement. After some time, the boy's father invited George to attend a Phoenix Symphony "Star Wars: The Music" performance. And so, George was afraid that he had to cancel our Wednesday lesson, because he absolutely could not miss the opportunity. It's the little touches like those, which make for a great relationship between a teacher and a student. I look forward to many more lessons with George.

I'm 29 years old and started piano lessons with George after having not played since middle school. George is great at customizing the lessons according to my ability and rate of learning. He teaches a lot of theory behind the music as well, which in my opinion, helps in understanding how to read the music. He also has a vast collection of music books and helps you choose books and songs that he thinks suits your learning style best.

George has been working with my 9 year old son who has never had piano lessons before. They have done their 4th piano lesson together and my son is already playing Minuet in G. A lot of it has to do with my son's interest in piano and music in general but George was able to modify his approach to suit my son. We will continue to take lessons and see where it goes. Thanks George for your patience and great knowledge transfer!

Susan was my Piano teacher for a couple of years before she moved to Arizona. She was just wonderful. A great teacher and yet flexible and understanding. Although she made sure I was challenged, she was willing to work with me on the pieces that I was interested in and kept me encouraged to continue playing and learning the piano with my terribly busy schedule. I highly recommend Susan as a music and piano teacher.

Susan is excellent with my granddaughter's piano lessons. She is patient and encouraging to her, helping her to remain focused. She is clear what she expects of her without being overbearing. Her regular full time job of teaching music at the grade school level is very apparent in her approach.

I took two years of Mary Wagner's group piano class at Saguaro High School. I am a percussionist and planned on going into Music Education at the time, and thought it would be worth my time to also learn piano. Mary is definitely the best piano teacher in the area. I played so much piano literature, and progressed extremely well under her instruction. She not only made sure I could play songs, but she made sure I had the knowledge and understanding of what I was reading. She did more than just improve my piano skills; she improved my musicianship. I'm now at ASU's School of Music studying Music Education, and even tested out of first semester piano; and my music theory class isn't a big challenge. Also, my sight-reading skills on mallet percussion are quite good. All of that is a direct result of studying under Mary. I've seen her work with all different levels of students, and all of her students achieve success in some way. Studying under Mary will make you a great pianist and musician. I truly believe that if you want to learn piano and are in the area, definitely go to Mary for lessons!

I took Mary's piano class while I was at Saguaro High School. Going into the class, I had no prior experience and simply was interested in learning a little piano. By the end of the first semester, I had completely fallen in love with the piano and had learned a great deal about music in a short amount of time. I was able to take Mary's class for an entire year and it was definitely the high point of my school day. Mary's was able to not only able to teach me the fundamentals of piano, but also to introduce me to many wonders in the piano and music. I still play the piano to this day, and it is all because of Mary's instructing and how she was able to broaden the world of music to me. I owe it all to Mary, and I can guarantee that anyone would love to learn, work, and play with Mary.

Mary is a wonderful person and an even better teacher! She takes the time to make sure each of her students learn in a way that makes sense to them. I haven't been playing piano in 10 years and I'm jumping back in it like it was yesterday. Thanks Mary! You're worth every penny!

I would like to highly recommend Michelle Beckle to you as a piano and/or vocal teacher for your children. Michelle is very passionate about music. Her love for the art is evident in her enthusiastic and energetic teaching techniques. She is patient with all students and always encourages them to perform at their best. Although she is one of the best music teachers in the area, her prices are extremely reasonable. My two sons have taken music lessons from Michelle for the past sixteen years. She regularly organizes recitals for the students to perform in front of audiences. It is my great pleasure to recommend Michelle Beckle to you as a music teacher for your children. I am tremendously grateful to her for everything she has taught my sons and the joy their music has brought to our family.

Peter, with Curtis Piano Tuning, did an excellent job tuning our piano. To be honest, we had been delaying it for years! He was responsive, responsible, professional, easy to talk to, and very affordable. His enthusiasm and love for all pianos was contagious. Our piano has been around the block, but he made sound how it was meant to sound. With full confidence l, I recommend him. We will definitely use his services again!

I hired Gerry for my mother's funeral service, after another musician I had been working with didn't work out. And at the last minute, when I was in a pinch and getting stressed, Gerry graciously jumped in to help me out. Gerry performed amazingly (I even saw the Catholic priest tapping his feet and moving!) Gerry made the service a great experience for my family and I deeply appreciate what he did for us. Gerry is a genuinely nice individual and a very kind and compassionate person. He made an impact on all my family members with his heartfelt performance. I would HIGHLY recommend Gerry for any musical needs! Awesome person!

My Husband and I chose Gerry for our music lessons and we're very happy we did! My husband is learning guitar and I am learning keyboard. He is very proficient and knowledgable in both. His approach to teaching is fun and unconventional... meaning I wasn't just sitting there trying to read notes that made no sense to me. I learned quite a bit in one lesson and am actually enjoying the learning process. Thanks, Gerry!

I went to Bryan for a piano lesson--it was great! He was extremely patient and definitely knows his stuff. He was able to carefully and clearly explain challenging musical ideas to me. He also provided very practical tips that almost immediately improved my piano playing. When teaching, he is able to demonstrate even the most complex of techniques. The lesson was informative and well taught! None of my previous teachers even come close. I'll definitely be back!

I take piano lessons from Chris and I highly recommend him. Chris is an extremely talented pianist and a great teacher. He is very flexible in finding material that the student will enjoy playing while still suiting the music to the students skill level and is able to isolate techniques. One thing I particularly enjoy about my lessons is that Chris does a great job of doing more than just helping me learning to play a song. He helps apply techniques of good piano playing to the pieces I am working on and explains how those techniques will affect the sound of the piece so it can be more emotional and entertaining. Now that I have been doing lessons with Chris for a while, we have started to adjust the structure of the lesson to add activities in our lessons that are geared toward my interests like music theory work or help strengthen some of my weaknesses like sight reading. Above all, Chris is an extremely kind person who genuinely cares about his students, their progress, and that they are enjoying both their lessons and learning the instrument as a whole.

Brooke F.

I cannot say enough good things about Chris and recommend him to any adult seeking to hire a high-quality piano instructor. Throughout each lesson, he is upbeat, respectful, flexible, engaging, responsive, thoughtful, and encouraging, making him truly motivating. Additionally, his humility puts others at ease in light of his exceptional talents. Meeting people where they are at, Chris skillfully tailors each lesson with a balance of music theory, technique, and individual piano performance, making each lesson holistic and high-value. He selects music pieces and instructional books that are challenging and of quality and provides appropriate practice/homework for next lesson. Overall, I'm so pleased with my experience and feel thankful that Chris is located in the Phoenix Valley to teach our community and share his gifts and make better piano players!
