I took piano lessons with Marissa - she was very flexible in terms of her schedule, and created a lesson plan around my learning goals. I've never played piano or sung before, but felt very comfortable to jump right in.

Have been taking clarinet and alto sax lessons with Andrew for years. Great teacher who is a master of his craft and is very dedicated to the progression of his students. Takes the time necessary to really help you learn and perfect all areas. He is very skilled in both jazz and classical and can really help his student develop in whichever way they desire. Would highly recommend to anyone who is serious about learning their instrument.

Zan has been teaching my middle school son how to play the alto saxophone for about a year and a half. My son has quickly learned from Zan how to read well and play with style and nuance. But that's just the half of it. In truth, my son is learning so much more from Zan. Zan doesn't just teach (and Zan's knowledge of music is truly vast); he truly cares about my son's interests and aptitude, and strives to engage with him on his level and in a way that inspires him to achieve his best musically, and to feel good about his playing and progress. Zan also inspires my son know and appreciate the beauty of music, so valuable for any music student. My science-minded son has never asked to not go to a music lesson (Zan is always upbeat and positive), or to not have to practice, though I suspect this would likely be the case with another teacher. This is because Zan has helped my son learn to appreciate both the effort that music demands and the reward it provides. What more could one expect to learn?

Tara was great, she works with a nice group of piano and guitar teachers and we were able to find a few different options that were a good match for my kids. She's very flexible, communicative and helpful.

Jerry Pajel (Mr. J) is a passionate violin teacher. I have been taking violin lessons for one year now, and I must say that I learned so much in my first month of lessons. While teaching, he communicates effectively and makes learning the violin easy!

Jeremy is a consumate musician, whose fluency and creative imagination on the saxophone place him among the most gifted exponents of the instrument. He plays all genres of music with utter ease, with perfect intonation, and exquisite nuancing, As a teacher, Jeremy is gentle, patient, professional, punctual and masterful in helping his students learn how to navigate the intricacies of sound production. In working with Jeremy, as he helps them hone their technical skills and develop the art of deep listening, his students are soon able to find their unique voices, play the music they love, and express themselves , with full confidence, on their instrument.

I have taken bass lessons from a handful of instructors over the years. Ariane is different. She has explained things to me that I have either never heard or never understood in new ways that help me to connect the dots. She makes the lessons fun and always challenges me and encourages me to stretch myself while giving me to the tools to do so. Do not hesitate to give hear a test drive.

Mark Sowlakis has been an excellent saxophone and clarinet teacher for both of our sons. Our older son started taking saxophone lessons with Mark when he was in middle school and studied with him through high school. Our younger son began clarinet lessons with Mark about seven years ago. In middle school he decided to take up the saxophone so he could join the jazz band. Mark was able to teach him both instruments. Our sons always enjoyed their lessons with Mark and he really helped bring out their best musical talents. In addition, he has always been flexible with scheduling lessons. Most recently he has accommodated our requests for help with music scholarship applications and auditions.

I am visibly United States from India and was hoping to take few saxophone lessons while I'm here cause there is hardly anyone who teaches saxophone there. Georgianna was really helpful. She gave me useful exercises to develop my tone as well as helped me with all my queries. I'll definitely recommend her.

I have been studying the sax for about five years. Sam was my first teacher and after working with two other teachers, I have decided he is the best teacher I've had and look forward to many more years of working with him. He is both patient and inspiring. He is technically accurate but yet not a slave to technique. He is also a kind soul and a pleasure to work with.

John has been tutoring the saxophone to my mid-schooler for the last year. During that time, I've found him to be very patient, personable, and respectful. Our son continues to enjoy music class in school (while some of his peers have stopped playing) and has shown progression is his ability to play pieces that require higher skill.
