My 10 year old child has been taking private violin lessons for over two years. In that time we have cycled through several teachers in an attempt to find someone who could actually teach. She would put in the time practicing, yet continued to spin her wheels with a thousand different variations of “Twinkle, Twinkle.” (Pass the Tylenol.) Simply put, we were not seeing any notable results. Since she began lessons with Dimitry in February, she has progressed significantly. Her growth has shifted from completely stagnant to shockingly exponential under his tutelage. In only 3 months’ time, she has advanced from Suzuki Book 1 to a rather challenging piece. Last week she auditioned for and was accepted into the Los Angeles Youth Orchestra, a feat which would have been completely unattainable before starting with Dimitry a few months ago. Most importantly, my daughter now enjoys playing the violin and does so with confidence and passion. She appreciates Dimitry’s straightforward yet motivational style of instruction and looks forward to her weekly lessons. We highly recommend him to all those looking to take their musical studies to the next level.

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.

My daughter recently started violin lessons with Ms. Cardenes. So far, she has been extremely friendly, patient, and encouraging. My daughter is a bit shy, and she has made her feel very comfortable and excited about learning.

I have been a student of Teacher Grace's for the last 4 years, and I have found that no other teacher can rank at her level of dedication and experience. I grew in tremendous amounts in both mind and violin playing under her guidance, and I see nothing to critique about her teaching style.

My two (2) kids go to this school for Piano Lessons. It's a great school with teachers who care and they even got (ONE) of my kids to actually play correctly and she now likes playing the piano. They are strict but have real concern for the students and offer a great environment to excel. I would recommend Donna Lee and her Music School anytime. A+++++++

My 10 yr old son has been taking private Violin lessons at home with Brandon for the last 4-5 months. My son enjoys learning from Brandon. He gives a lot of focus on getting the basics right, something which my son didn't learn in his group Violin classes at school.. My son finds him very funny and likes that Brandon gives him little tips like rhymes/beats which help him remember his notes better. There are times he comes a little late because of heavy traffic but he always sends a message and lets us know about it.We are looking forward to learning more from him.

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.

Jennifer has been my violin teacher since January 2017. I really enjoy working with her. She's very flexible with scheduling. In our lessons, she selects pieces that are appropriate for my skill level, and she is very, very encouraging which I appreciate greatly. I feel fortunate to be her student.

Michael is terrific! We were looking for a teacher to work with our 8 year old son while we were visiting LA for the month. Michael is amazing at inspiring and engaging our son. Our son was so excited after his lesson we happily booked Michael for 3 lessons a week for the rest of our stay. Highly recommend!

Matthew is able to do in-home lessons, which for me right now is very helpful. Although I was going to take violin lessons I decided to switch to viola, and Matthew is a wonderful, wonderful viola teacher (as he surely must be for violin too, given his expertise and patience). He is clearly a masterful teacher, as working with adult students presents a whole other range of challenges to an instructor. I've had only two lessons so far and have already made clear progress in the areas I wanted most to improve, and look forward to working with Matthew going forward. My lessons are inspiring with this clearly highly experienced player and performer; they are also fun. Matthew's a warm-hearted and engaging teacher with whom I KNOW I'll continue to make progress. Though I'm an older adult, I am inspired to push through my limits. With so much to learn I'm very grateful to have a teacher with expertise, humor and flexibilty. Thank you for reading this.

Shanon is the best. I'm about to finish my first term with her and I feel I've made great progress, especially as an adult beginner who's never played music before. She helped me get an instrument and she's always available to answer my questions. 100% would recommend!

Awesome place for kids to learn and master the art of music... My daughter took guitar,piano and voice lessons... Unfortunately we had to move and she can no longer attend... I wish they would open a location near Riverside so my daughter could continue with her art education... If you're looking for professional and affordable music classes for your kids then Piano Place Music and Arts Center is the right place for them. I am happy that my daughter had the opportunity to be a student at this family owned music school and I hope she can come back in the near future..... Beautiful family and very nice/professional teachers!
