I've started taking lap steel guitar lessons with Paul a few weeks ago. Initially I was very intimidated by the lap steel, however through Paul's knowledgable and patient instruction learning the instrument no longer seems like an impossibility. Paul clearly explains concepts and never loses his patience (even when I'm about to do so). Lastly, his pleasant and positive personality make challenging material enjoyable for someone who, musically speaking, should probably be wearing a helmet outdoors.

Paul is a great teacher. He's passionate about guitar and uses his passion to teach students. My 13 and 11 year olds love him. He is consistent in his teaching and makes the lesson fun. I would highly recommend him for any guitar lessons.

Dr. Stephanie is great! I've only been taking singing lessons with her for almost 2 months now, and I feel like i've learned so much. I came in with absolutely zero experience in singing and she was very patient with me learning from scratch. I'm naturally a very self conscious person and she made me feel very comfortable immediately. I've already started to see and feel improvement in my voice. She's also just a very awesome person in general, she's super nice and encouraging and makes you excited to come back for the next lesson.

Sid gave guitar lessons to my daughter (14). He was recommended to us by a friend who has a 12 year old son that Sid taught. He is a great teacher and I can tell he is good at relating to kids of all ages. It is obvious, Sid has an appreciation and a passion for music and I would highly recommend him to anyone!

My son has been taking guitar lessons from John (Whitehead) for about a year now. We couldn't be happier. John is professional, patient and very competent. My son has mild autism, so it's sometimes challenging to find an instructor who can get the best out of him. John has a relaxed attitude but he also stresses proper technique, so I feel like we've really struck gold. I would recommend Peaceland Music to anybody.

I had the pleasure of receiving masterful guitar lessons from James Musser. He is by far one of the most insightful guitar teachers I have ever had the pleasure of taking lessons from. He is very concise in his instructions. His teaching strategies are great he really customizes the lesson to fit the students needs. I recommend anyone to him whether you are a beginner or and advance player.

For more than two years I have taken piano lessons from Esther Sanborn and I can say that I am quite pleased with my growth and progress. Let me preface this by saying that I am an older adult and have over the years developed bad habits in my technique. Ms Sanborn helped me correct these with her unending patience and insight. I love her insistence on good technique, ensuring that her students become better players. She is very respectful of my personal taste in the classical music that I choose to play, and has always been very encouraging whenever I express doubt about my abilities. Esther Sanborn is a true professional who knows music, and her love of the piano is palpable. It makes each lesson a joy.

My daughter has been taking piano lessons with Ms. Esther for more than two years. During this time, I have witnessed her fine qualities as a teacher. Ms. Esther is enthusiastic and passionate about music. She has imparted her love of music onto my daughter. Ms. Esther has always treated my daughter as an individual and customized her lessons according to her need. When my daughter performs well, Ms. Esther acknowledges her accomplishment. When my daughter struggles with a lesson, Ms. Esther encourages with positive and caring words. I highly respect Ms. Esther's natural gift for teaching.

My daughter has been taking piano lessons from Miss Esther for three years. She simply loves going to the lesson each week. Miss Esther is doing a great job in keeping my daughter motivated. Each kid is different and a special teacher your child deserve is one that would emphasis more on your child's well-being and love for music than the pursuit of Certificate of Merit, a yardstick that more often than not makes kids hate music in the end. Thank you, Miss Esther.

We had been searching for a piano teacher for our 8 year daughter for some time and finally found Charlyn a few months ago. We're so glad we did. Charlyn is extremely patient, very professional and totally devoted to teaching. She makes the lessons fun and works toward my daughters interests all the while teaching the important foundations of the instrument. I love her well-rounded approach--she includes a little of everything from theory, finger positioning, to sight reading, etc... My daughter has learned so much and we've only just begun! I would highly recommend Charlyn to anyone--young or old--interested in lessons!

Karlene R.

Charlyn is extremely patient and offers lots of positive feedback and encouragement. My kids came a long way, fast, under her tutelage. I also take lessons from her and although I don't practice as much as I should, she is never judgmental or disappointed. Anyone would be lucky to have her as a teacher. She's got a great personality, easy to talk to, and all around a very nice person and great teacher!

Thomas taught our 10yo son and 8yo daughter piano during the school year 14/15. Our kids were brand new to piano and Thomas did a great job connecting with them on their learning terms and taught them and amazing amount of music. He kept it fresh, was patient, and was very consistent about practice time, using the metronome, posture etc. While I wouldn't call him super strict he brought the right elements of discipline for our kids and they now love the piano and will continue this year.

Omar was a great teacher who made each lesson challenging but fun at the same time. I learned a lot from him in a short time about finger picking and chord progressions, and he introduced me to a lot of perfect songs to learn on guitar that I wouldn't have known otherwise.

Both Van and Sean provide a phenomenal education for people who want to learn singing. They guided my kids over the years to learn how to sing, perform and ultimately use their own natural voice in a healthy and efficient way. They provide performing opportunities and have great connections with people in the industry and in New York City. My kids enjoy each lesson and always ask when they can go back for their next lesson.

So Great! They are experts in the field of singing, no question. The education I received from VS Music Studios prepped me for professional auditions and Sean taught me how to sing with ease and freedom. Additionally, I sound awesome! I am so happy that I chose to go with VS Music Studios these last few years. It's definitely worth every dollar and every mile I drove.

The best voice lessons I have ever experienced! I have worked with other singing teachers before, but Van and Sean have transformed the way I sing and my voice has never felt so free. I'm able to sing higher and lower than before and I can sing songs that were very difficult now with ease. I love it! Thanks Van and Sean!

My experience with Linda was very positive. Linda is a very patient, knowledgeable, and mild mannered teacher. She is clear and concise with direction and explains things so that my sons understood what they were doing right, what they needed to improvement on, and what the expectations were. Linda was punctual and ready at my sons lesson start times and had each of their sessions well planned out. She is dedicated to them learning piano and seeing them progress. I would not hesitate to refer her service to anyone who wants their child to learn music.

Linda has been my son's private cello teacher for many years. With her help he jumped straight into the advanced chamber orchestra at high school as a freshman. We recently added music theory to his regular weekly lessons and as a result his grade for his AP music theory class at the high school is a 99.5%. Here's hoping for a 5 on his AP test!

My last piano lesson was over 15 years ago! My teacher was great but she stuck to classical. I told her I wanted something more "fun" but Ragtime was not quite what I had in mind. I thought of taking lessons again for years and finally took action a few months ago. I was so nervous because I have forgotten everything! Sylvia is very patience, fun and knowledgably. She has a great personality and I feel very at ease taking lessons from her. So far, my lessons have been refreshers and I have been able to pick things up quickly - mainly because she is that great of a teacher. I look forward to my lessons and I cannot wait to get to the point where I can play something simple like a Yanni piece perfectly.

I am an adult student that has been learning the piano from Susan for about 4 months now, and I am enjoying every lesson thoroughly. Susan is an extremely patient teacher with great experience. I had about 2-3 years experience with western classical music on the piano before beginning my lessons with her, but still had difficulty in sight reading. Susan immediately identified my problem and suggested a method to correct it, and it is working extremely well! She also is very methodical in teaching and this helps tackle difficult pieces with utmost ease. I love the fact that she is very flexible, and gives importance to mastering a piece more than anything else. Loving every bit of my lessons with her!

I love my lessons with Susan! I am returning to the piano after 40 years away from it. She's the perfect teacher for me as she knows what repertoire will work for me, and understands that my progress may not be as fast as either of us would like as life often gets in the way. She is fun, helpful, patient, understanding, empathetic, and teaches me at just the right pace. I look forward to my lessons, and highly recommend her.

My son has been taking piano lessons from Ms. Kaiser (he's more formal with her -- I believe everyone else calls her by her first name) for six months. He absolutely LOVES it. I took several years of lessons (played throughout high school and college) and generally play for fun, so I am not clueless when it comes to music. I am also a teacher (just not a music teacher). I find that Marguerite is amazing at her craft -- both playing and teaching. She is very in tune to young students and knows when they are tired with one activity. She quickly moves on to something else! I love this approach. Additionally, she does not teach JUST piano. Students learn singing, rhythm through percussion, note reading, AND piano. I was not taught this way, though I really wish I was! Additionally, she teaches the students perfect pitch from day one. She truly is a special gem of a teacher. My son loves her dearly and we are thankful to have such a great teacher in our lives. He is now on to composing his own tunes. I am amazed with him and thankful we have such a great teacher to nurture his musical creativity. You won't regret hiring Marguerite!

My son started taking piano lessons from Kelly a year and half ago. Since then, he has blossomed. We'd tried a franchise center before discovering Kelly but quickly discovered that a minimum of piano playing is actually done there. At 7, he needed the basics first and she made it so easy and fun for him. Now 9, he took and passed the ABRSMs at Cal State LA last fall, becoming one of the youngest to do so out of 600 students. Recitals are offered twice a year, allowing kids to present their work to an audience. The kids enjoy playing, thanks to her patience, passion and persistence. We highly recommend Kelly Pedroza and Elite Musique.

We are so lucky to have met such an outstanding, caring and friendly music teacher. Kelly Apgar and her wonderful array of instructors make music lessons fun and enjoyable for my three daughters, who take piano, guitar and, voice lessons. Within months of taking music lessons, my daughters were reading music and playing songs! An added benefit to working with Elite Musique is that they prepare students for passing the Royal School of Music exams. Kelly and her staff are nurturing and patient with their students. Kids learn how to play an instrument while developing the love of music!

The two years that my daughter has been taking piano lessons with Elite Musique piano teacher, Kelly, has been nothing but a positive experience.

She has helped me to become a better sight-reader and my understanding of music has allowed me to start writing my own music- all thanks to Dr. Chen. She is also capable of teaching skills needed to play different styles of music. My lessons always include classical pieces and some of my favorite songs by Stevie Wonder.

There are a few reasons why I consider Lynda to be a very good teacher. First, Lynda immediately showed an ability to listen and provide lessons customized to my needs as a student. I'm a musician and she has been respectful of my own ideas while being eager to provide me with new musical tools on piano that I am enjoying using in my music. I should also mention we have done our lessons over the internet, as I'm on the east coast and she's on the west coast. We haven't had any issues regarding the remote sessions. I'm also sure she would be good with students who are new to music and would provide a structure conducive to learning. I've enjoyed learning from her and I've also enjoyed our conversations regarding creativity, songwriting, and her receptiveness to any ideas of feedback I have. She's a very good teacher and a good person. If she wasn't, I wouldn't be working with her. To me, it's that simple.

Both my daughters have taken lessons with Lynda since there were seven years old (they are now teenagers). In asking my daughters what they like about Lynda they talk about the friendship that has developed over the years, of how Lynda knows their strengths and weaknesses and adjusts the lessons accordingly. While Lynda has lesson books she works from with the girls, she has also be open to pop songs the girls want to play, knowing it keeps the girls interested. The one critique I have of Lynda is the lack of a yearly recital. The first years we were taking lessons there were the annual recitals, but there has not been a recital in several years. It would be nice to have the recitals back.
