"I have taken jazz piano lessons with Clifford for 3 years. He is knowledgeable regarding both jazz and classical music, with formal training and performance experience in both. He helped me with technique, theory and approaches to jazz material that I was playing in separate jazz combo classes. "

"I have had four lessons with Juan Carlos Zepeda, with sessions divided into voice lessons and music skills (intervals, timing, etc.). Juan Carlos has a way of demystifying how the voice works (head and chest voice, placement, etc.). Each session clears something away and my understanding of the mechanics of it all is increasing. Juan Carlos has a beautiful singing voice, plays piano, and is both very kind and approachable. I highly recommend him."

"I had studied piano as a child, and I began to play again after I retired. When I moved to Walnut Creek I transferred my piano lessons to Martin. I found that his lessons were much more comprehensive than my previous teacher's. In addition to helping with the basics, he teaches more subtle aspects of interpreting each piece that results in greater musicality than I had achieved before. Although this is more demanding, he is very supportive and encouraging, and I look forward to each lesson."

"I can't say enough about my experience with Ken. He is very intuitive. His lessons are balence between exercises and therory. I have alway found myself mentally stimulated, with plenty of work for my fingers. He is very energetic and reaches out between lessons to give you more music to play with. His warm and friendly personality make the lessons fly by. He also willing to work through tought topics without cutting the lesson short (schedule permitting ). I really appreciate his effort into his students. He has also been pretty flexible with my shedule. As an adult these are not the piano lessons I hated as a child. Lol"

"I absolutely LOVE working with Michael and learning guitar from him. I've tried many times to learn before, and it's never quite stuck. Michael has a way of making difficult concepts seem easy and I'm finally able to grasp music theory. It's always challenging learning something new because I (as I'm sure a lot of people do) feel silly when I mess up or a little dumb if I don't do something right, and Michael makes me feel comfortable and able to make mistakes and try new chords or scales, or whatever it may be. I HIGHLY recommend hiring Michael if you want to learn guitar or just improve your skills!"

"Over the years I have received instruction from Donna through piano lessons and participation in various choirs she has conducted. I am impressed with her knowledge, expertise, kindness, and patience. I am especially thankful for the way I have been instructed to sing so that I do not harm my voice....and in the piano instruction that includes education in the instrument - its history and how it works - and arm and hand technique when playing."

"Mike is hands down the best piano teacher we have had for my son. He connects with the kids in the kindest and most accepting way. He maintains his sense of humor while not letting them get away with just sliding by. He works with the parents to ensure the best learning experience for the child. He uses his expertise in music methodology and various learning styles to help the children discover what drives their talent and then focuses on what they do best to help them learn what is most challenging to them. And he has the patience of a saint to boot! I’m so impressed with how far my son has come under his tutelage."

"Rebecca is a passionate and amazing person. She is very knowledgeable about music and works to help her students develop their skills while finding ways to help them enjoy music. She works with your pace and allows you to play the way you like to play. I have learned under Rebecca for almost 2 years and it has been great. She was able to help me learn pieces in which it would take me a while to learn. I learned a lot of the fundamentals and also technique including scales, arpeggios, and how to transition between octaves. I was able to play a wide variety of music from classical to movie soundtracks, modern, and even music from games! I had a wonderful time learning piano from her and her cheerful and upbeat attitude has kept me going in learning piano. I highly recommend her to anyone trying to learn piano!!!"

"I have studied piano at De Paul University and I learned more about piano music, technique, physical approach, and overcoming visual handicaps, from Christina than I did from any of the teachers at the University. She is an outstanding teacher and a wonderful person who studies the individual to be able to develop the best technique to impart piano and musical knowledge."
