These were my first voice lessons ever. Lessons are fun. Deborah has lots of helpful advice and encouragement.
Art gave drum lessons to my then 9 year old daughter. He was great! He was always punctual, came prepared, was patient with her, kept it fun and gave good, clear homework assignments. I highly recommend him.
Nick has been providing guitar lessons for my daughter for over a year now. He style is fun, engaging, and hip. Highly recommend his expertise!
I strongly recommend Diego as an excellent professor of piano, who really motivates students to develop their ability. He gave piano lessons to my older daughter for more than 5 years since she was in high school, until some months ago. I am very grateful to Diego for encouraging Almudena, my daughter, to find a way of expressing herself through music.
I have taken guitar lessons from Chris for quite a while. He is a joy to work with and has developed his own customized approach to teaching. He is amazingly talented and makes learning easy and fun. Sadly I must keep my day job, but that isn't Chris's fault! Scott A.
Ward is very helpful in helping me properly learn how to maneuver different styles to playing drums. He's very encouraging and made me feel very comfortable playing at my own pace. He's very mature, and experienced- I'm very delighted in having him as a Drum Teacher!
I have been taking drum lessons with Eyal for two years. I have grown so much as a musician and as a person from my time with Eyal. He pushes me to practice and to love the drums, in a supportive, kind way. I can't thank him enough for how much he has helped me!
Warren is a positive, engaging, and talented drum teacher. My son always looks forward to his lessons with him.
Mike was an excellent teacher of the drums and I highly recommend him to anyone starting to learn how to drum. He is skilled in conga drums along with standard kits.
I've never been musically inclined, and he found the instrument that I could easily learn on, then taught me to play in terms even I could understand. Thanks Mike!
Great instructor. Thorough and knowledgable. I played two drum beats on my first drum lesson and I had never played drums before. I progressed rapidly and after 6 months can comfortably play with a band.
I have been with Otto for 2 months and an delighted with my progress. He is clearly a knowledgeable and skilled musician and teacher. He is building my drumming skills layer by layer. Each week I learn new techniques starting with the basics. As well, he shows patience and if I am puzzled he uses a different method to get the point across. I hold a master's degree and play another instrument so understand and recognize a good teacher.
Alex is one in a million! He teaches music through a structural perspective rather than by the more traditional method of learn a note here, learn a note there (I haven't played the piano since I was a child, but I still cringe at the memory of the tedious and monotonous scales, finger exercises and simplified classical pieces I used to have to play). Alex's lessons are anything but tedious, and, even though I am essentially a beginner (having forgotten everything I learned as a child), I feel like I am well on my way to having a deeper understanding of what I am playing because I have a developing understanding how it works. I feel like I am learning the language of music through total immersion rather than by the textbook method of learning how to read the notes. I now listen to and hear music differently, and there is much I am learning on my own. I am especially pleased with the way Alex tailors my lessons around what I want to do rather than what he thinks I should do. As a result, I am learning to play jazz piano rather the stuff I was forced to play as a child (unless I want to, of course, in which case he would teach me that). And the best part (as if it could get better)? Alex is so enthusiastic about what he does that it is contagious and makes working with him a sheer joy. There is not much I look forward to and enjoy more than my lessons with Alex. Needless to say, I highly recommend Alex Balmaceda for anyone who is interested in learning more about music than simply reading and playing the notes.

I've been a professional drummer for over 30 years and have been teaching drums for 15 years. I do rock band group lessons and performance.
I am a drummer with over 10-plus years of experience in all music types. I have experiences in several bands and can teach all levels (beginners to advanced).
I am still very active in the music scene so my lessons incorporate all past and current styles of guitar playing.
