We took piano lessons with Hillary! She is such a great teacher, and also super nice and patient. I highly recommend her. LessonLodge's service is really cool. Their founder, William, matched me with Hillary and was very helpful along the way. I was able to watch her new student video before I even booked. Also, they have a mobile app, so it was very easy to schedule and communicate with Hillary. Thanks LessonLodge!

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.

Highly Impressed! We’re highly impressed by the first lesson! It was an excellent start. Our instructor Chelsea quickly figured out how to connect with my son, invoking an excitement to learn the basics as well as the fun parts. My son expressed the desire to have longer lessons coming up, which says it all!

I decided at the age of 18 that, even though I was older than the typical student, it was finally time to fulfill my dream of learning how to play piano. Now, after two years of being with Knauer Music School, I have to say it’s truly been amazing and I’ve learned more than I thought I could in such a short amount of time. My teacher, Anjela, helped me reach my full potential and my own personal goal; she was always so understanding and helpful, regardless of the situation. Even though I felt nervous at first starting lessons at my age, I never felt out of place because the staff-- especially Robbie and Ben--always made me feel warm and welcome. I would definitely recommend taking lessons with Knauer Music School--I couldn't have asked for a better experience;!

Banjo lessons with Eddie have been spectacular! He's very knowledgeable and can always explain what I might be having problems with. I leave each lesson not being able to wait to go home and practice. I can't wait for my lesson next week!

For one last time, I wanted my father to be serenaded. He has always loved music. So, on the day of his viewing /wake, a tenor (Erwin), and a violinist (Lisa), sang and played for the guests... and my dad. His soul would have loved it. Professionally dressed and sounding divine. Erwin sang The Prayer, For Always, To Where You Are, Remember Me, and You Raise Me Up. The only thing I would change is to have Liza play the violin first for 30 minutes, then have Erwin and Liza duet for the next 30. A lot of people missed the songs. Aside from the order of performance, I would hire them back in a heartbeat. Great performance!

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.

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.

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!

About

Experience! I have played the guitar professionally for over 50 years and the piano professionally for over 40 years! My passion is to spread the enjoyment of being able to play a musical instrument and all that one may gain from the ability to do so. I don't expect everyone or anyone to be a professional musician; that is entirely up to each and every individual. I just enjoy watching those who wish to be into the wonderful world of being able to create music... and anyone can be involved! There really is nothing like it!

About

Over fifteen years I have become experienced in many styles of music. Starting with guitar, I then focused heavily on singing through choirs and my own accapella group. When I was 16 I traded my bike for a drum set and have been playing ever since. Keys came after that. I have been playing in bands since i was 12 and writing my own music since I was 10.
