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.
My children (11 and 9) have been taking piano lessons at Coastal Music Studios for 15 months now. It's been a great learning adventure since: my daughter unlike my son started at an entry level and is now able to play a great selection of good classicals. Andy and Pam are a great team with awesome management skills. While Andy teaches guitar and more, he's mainly the admin person who always goes above and beyond to accommodation his clients. Pam's pedagogical skills are impressive. She teaches piano, singing, directs the Children's Choir (which is free!), conducts .... with encouragement and patience. She's an accomplished musician and artist, perfect for our children! We highly recommend Coastal Music Studio for any music lesson!
Omar is very professional and patient. My daughter is enjoying her cello lessons.
The slow progression at school was the reason why I decided to put may daughter up with a private teacher, whom Linda seems to be the right fit. My daughter was never corrected for her fingering while playing the cello at school, until Linda did so. It took my daughter 6 months just to play 1 piece of music at school, let alone reading the music sheet for the cello comfortably. And she was the only cello student at school too! Linda is not only very knowledgeable musically, but also very talented as she plays many different instruments. Overall, very productive 1st class with Linda.
My daughter started violin lessons and we couldn't be more pleased with the instruction she is receiving. Ms. Eunji is very patient and thorough. It was easy to schedule classes and the prices are reasonable. It is a plus that they offer lessons on the weekends as well. My daughter also decided to take the robotics and she is super thrilled with what she learning in there.
We have been taking piano lessons from Dr. Azi of Playa Music Lessons for almost 2 years now and we absolutely love it! She is very kind, competent and passionate about what she does. It truly makes learning a joy. My daughter, who was previously resistant to learning any kind of musical instrument, now loves her weekly lessons and even looks forward to them. I highly recommend Dr. Azi and her musical studio!
Terri is a wonderful teacher. I began taking cello lessons from her earlier this year. She is patient, talented, and extremely knowledgeable. I would recommend her to anyone with a desire to make music!
I am so glad to have found Jessica. She is patient, observant, helpful, and so encouraging. I was unsure how online cello lessons would work, but this is the ideal format for me. Jessica is able to observe form and offer gentle suggestions as well as instruction on sound. I highly recommend Jessica and am sure that with her help, even an old, slow returning cellist will soon be enjoying playing complex music. Finally, Jessica has been very flexible with my crazy schedule lately. An awesome person and great instructor.
The two years that my daughter has been taking piano lessons with Elite Musique piano teacher, Kelly, has been nothing but a positive experience. My daughter's favorite aspect is preparing and performing for the company-organized open mic nights. As a parent, I have been impressed with Kelly's knowledge and professionalism, her genuine attention to my daughter's advancement in piano (and voice) skills, and the performing and testing opportunities.
I’m an undergraduate student at USC and I’ve been playing cello for more than five years, although I’ve taken lessons for less than two. I’ve worked with Juliette for about seven months, and it has been a worthwhile learning experience. I recommend Juliette as a cello instructor to anyone committed to studying the cello. Juliette works with me for one hour per week, and each lesson, we work on scales, exercises, and pieces. She varies the amount of time we spend on each depending on what she believes I need attention that week. The exercises emphasized strength and flexibility in each hand as well as bow control, shifting, and thumb position. She is very patient with my progress (and the occasional lack of it); there have been times when I struggled to develop the correct technique, rhythm, or concept for a particular piece, passage, or exercise, and she didn’t get frustrated as some other teachers do. When we work on pieces, Juliette provides many valuable insights regarding note articulation, phrasing, bowing, and more. She has helped me on reading rhythms, subdividing, training my ears, and learning music theory. Juliette is a talented performing cellist, so she is busy with her own practicing and performances, but she is flexible and accommodating. Whenever she needs to travel for a performance, she lets me know well ahead of time so we can plan around her schedule as well as mine. There have been many weeks when something unexpected came up in my schedule, and she was able to reschedule our lesson. Her flexibility helps me keep on schedule with my goals in music as well as focus on my other responsibilities when they are overwhelming. Juliette is always on time for my lessons and hasn’t canceled any without notifying me days in advance. Her prices are also reasonable given her level of education. During our lessons, Juliette often reminds me that, “You are your best teacher” because she only sees me once per week, whereas I am with myself whenever I practice. However, given the opportunity to work with an instructor, Juliette is an excellent choice.
Felix has been teaching my son now for 6 months and "wow" what a difference. My son is now included in the orchestra section that performs at the theatre plays. ( only expeienced and well taught students get this opportunity. Felix has not only given my son the proper instruction on how to play a cello, but he had to re teach him some previously taught (incorrectly taught) finger positions . That was not a easy task because my son has autism. Felix is a professional and patient and I do recommned him highly. Check him out on u tube , amazing!!! Signed, 1 proud Mom
Amazing Viola teacher, best I ever had. He has a clear cut teaching style, focusing a lot on technique. He goes beyond the sheet music and is very knowledgable about performance psychology. He's an active performer and is able to share his insight into the industry. I would recommend him to absolutely anyone.
Daniel was my son's cello and guitar teacher for several years. He is unbelievably talented, sensitive to each child's needs in the short and long term, and my son always both enjoyed and learned a lot from his sessions. I recommend Daniel Plane enthusiastically and unreservedly.
Mr. Graf was my very first music teacher. Amazing man. He encouraged me to explore multiple instruments, and made learning to play, read, and make music exciting and fun. I will never forget his passion, energy, and his awesome hair

I teach piano, voice, violin and cello lessons in a relaxed but professional atmosphere. My home studio is warm and inviting; you must love little dogs! They love kids and people in general! I teach kids of all ages, teens and adults how to read treble and bass clef, play piano, sing, play drum rhythms, or play the violin or cello. Music is healing and fun! It's a great tool to build a child's self- esteem. I have been teaching all styles of piano and voice for 40 years, including traditional music reading, rhythms, fingering for piano, and techniques for great position, pitch and tone on stringed instruments like violin and cello.
