I highly recommend GreenTree and Sidney!! Coordinating piano lessons and other artistic endeavors with Sidney was an effortlesss and pleasant task. He made it happen and initiated some remarkable lessons. GreenTree is on speed dial for our next visit to OC.
I specifically selected Nader as my violin instructor because of his experience teaching adult beginners. I'm an absolute beginner with the violin and with reading music. I've been taking lessons for a month now and have made solid progress with both. Nader was the right choice for me and I look forward to working with him long term.
Punctual & responsive. Piano sounds much better.
Coastal Music Studios....hmmm. where do I start! We began with Coastal Music Studios about three years ago when my two daughters took a "free" week-long music summer camp. I was so impressed by the hands-on learning that was taking place that I knew I needed to look into this place a bit closer. Found out that they not only offered the music camp but also a '"free" children's choir, which both my girls have attended. I quickly set up an appointment to see if my girls would like to take music lessons. After that meeting, one daughter began piano lessons and the other voice. Mr. Andy and Ms. Pam have been absolutely amazing with regards to my girls' and their music experience. They are patient, knowledgeable, engaging, and caring. Those qualities are extremely important to all children, but when you have a child with special needs, it becomes even more so. My daughter is deaf and has been taking piano lessons with Ms. Pam for the past 2 1/2 years. On my daughters first lesson, Ms. Pam had researched cochlear implants and already had a plan in place to ensure that my daughter would get the most of her lesson. And then there's my other daughter, spunky, feisty, and full of piss and vinegar, and Ms. Pam knows how to deal with that, too! We cannot thank them enough and appreciate all that they do for all children to bring a love of music to their hearts. I would highly recommending Coastal Music Studios, you cannot find a better studio!
Before taking piano lessons with Rebecca, my only experience with musical instruction was through elementary and junior high. Rebecca's training and personal dedication to music makes her an extraordinary teacher. We use the Suzuki books, which I love because that's what I used for violin and flute. She supplements those favorites with really nice adult-learning-centered books on theory. As an adult learner, this was helpful, because I could read through these brief books, but then had the terminology to look up my questions online or know what to ask in lessons. The lessons are so fun and well organized. We work on the songs in the books (which included CDs of the songs so you can hear what the song might sound like if you practice enough) and she would help me with songs I brought in too. Rebecca is so kind, and is great with my five-year-old too. Really, Rebecca is an excellent music instructor. Her academic background, many years of actually playing piano and singing, knowledge of the music available and books, and variety of students -- all make her a versatile teacher, capable of helping anyone learn to the play the piano in whatever style they are interested in. Plus, she is an incredible person. I look forward to piano lessons with her.
Jimmy is a great teacher and I am learning a ton from him. I highly recommend him to anyone interested in guitar lessons and he is great with beginners like me!
Cameron is an outstanding teacher. I highly recommend choosing him for your guitar lessons. Cameron makes learning fun, he is very motivational, his easy going personality and teaching style work so well with my learning style. I'm so glad I found this website which led me to my awesome guitar teacher Cameron!
Tony is an outstanding musician and a teacher! He is very inspiring as he is playing piano absolutely stunning and his way of teaching is fabulous. You will be very lucky to get space with him! Very Highly recommended. I am a pianist but I wanted to develop my skills in jazz music, and what I've learned from Tony, was very very impressive! He was the best teacher I found in New York and I'll be coming back to him again and again when I'll be there. Thank you so much Tony!
I had the best time taking guitar lessons from Roman. He's reliable and punctual. He has great method to his teaching including succinct explanation of method and fun stories to go along with the instruction. He uses his ingenuity in lesson planning. I've learned some really fun songs and feel like I have a greater appreciation for and greater knowledge of technique behind classical guitar playing than the average strummer.
I can't say enough positive things about John Paul. He is very talented as a musician and a teacher. He is very unique and creative in his teaching. I learned concepts in a short amount of time in a fun way - chords, reading music, scales that would have taken me a lot longer and painfully on my own. He keeps every lesson interesting and fun. I feel lucky I found him so if you are in the area and want to learn the piano I highly recommend him as your next teacher.
Learning under Ian was a fantastic experience. He taught me how to play "Lean on Me" and "My Type" by Saint Motel in just two hours. I had an incredible time in my sessions and would recommend his services to anyone.
Our 5 year-old has improved a great deal while taking lessons with Amy. She has made it fun and has personalized her lessons to his interest and developmental stage. He now has a better posture while playing and has started to read music.
Joey has been instructing my son in alto, baritone and tenor sax for four years. He is a thoughtful, talented, professional and dedicated teacher. He understands his students needs and tailors his lessons to suit them. With regular practice and excellent coaching my sons playing has improved tremendously. I would highly recommend Joey to anyone considering music lessons - youth or adult.
Lorilee was my daughter's piano/ music teacher at her high school. She is full of life, and is a bubbly enthusiastic person. She lives for music. I have been to a few concerts in Manchester, England with my daughter and had attended a masterclass for the children by an eminent pianist. My daughter's knowledge of music and her piano playing had improved greatly. She is still studying music and engineering at her University.
My specialization is in classical, flamenco, metal, jazz and reggae. Not only could I teach you the music theory, but also the art of improvisation and understanding of a band setting. I have been playing since I was 9 years old and went to musical school. Please contact me if you are interested. First lesson is free.
