Sid gave guitar lessons to my daughter (14). He was recommended to us by a friend who has a 12 year old son that Sid taught. He is a great teacher and I can tell he is good at relating to kids of all ages. It is obvious, Sid has an appreciation and a passion for music and I would highly recommend him to anyone!

Dimitry Olevsky is an excellent violin teacher whose style and insight as a teacher can and certainly will lead to many top adult violin players in the years ahead. I say that from the perspective, not only of my current 13-year old, who is studying under him after having taken less inspiring lessons elsewhere, but also from memories of years past when my now much older adult daughter took violin lessons as a middle and high schooler. And indeed from my own perspective taking serious music instrumental lessons (not on violin) decades ago. Having said the above, Dr. Olevsky will be most successful with students who have an internal drive and desire to better themselves as a musician. He can be severe and critical in pointing out areas where his students' techniques and musical interpretation need improvement, and he is excellent in both aspects of this guidance. A lesson sequence is serious business, and Dr. Olevsky can be severely critical if the circumstances call for this. Lesson time is not given to frivolity, and students must be able to accept criticism. A non-self motivated student may falter under his guidance -- unless the process of becoming better leads to increased dedication. I.e., the non-dedicated student may find the pressure to improve more than he or she might like, and the lesson criticism and demonstration of specific ways to improve may lead to discouragement. This is more likely to happen if the student does not act on suggested improvements during practice at home between actual lessons. I highly recommend Dr. Olevsky for students dedicated to learning seriously.

My wife started our 15 year old daughter on violin lessons over Christmas break- since then she has gained confidence in her playing and the sound is much improved as well.She loves the duets that her teacher brings to play together, and it has taught her how to listen more and helped in school orchestra as well. Thank you Jamie!

This is a great school. My daughter takes violin lessons from Eunji Lee. She has vastly improved since she started her lessons. She really enjoys the time she spends at the school.

Our son has been taking Cello lessons from Arlette for 1 1/2 years now and has improved tremendously. He is 14 years old and still looks forward to going to lessons every week. Arlette is really good at finding a student's strengths/likes to keep their interest, as well as finding the areas they need to work on. Highly recommended.

As an adult who previously played but stopped for many years before coming back to my violin, Jazzly has been a perfect match for me; she immediately zeroed in on my strengths and weaknesses and quickly put together a study/practice plan which has me making progress on the road towards my playing goals. I look forward to and enjoy each lesson. I could't recommend her more highly.

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.

Grace has been a wonderful violin teacher to me. I played when I was much younger and wanted to start taking lessons again. She has helped me catch up with the skills I already knew as a young player, and we are currently working on expanding to new skills. Our lessons are fun, and I always feel like I am learning so much in just one short hour.

Manoela has been teaching me violin for over 2 years. She gave me confidence and encouragement from day one. I never thought learning an instrument could be this rewarding! She took the time to find out what I was really interested in learning so that lessons were fun and challenging at the same time from the very beginning. Manoela has a tremendous amount of patience and an ability to teach a number of different ways until I grasp the concept. I could not recommend Manoela more highly for any type of student!

Brian was very patience and extremely helpful with setting us up with a piano teacher. We just finished our first lesson with our kids and Naomi is great! She seems very knowledgeable with piano. My kids were able to warm up to her quickly and that's not easy process. We will definitely be continuing our lessons!

My name is Tuan Hoang . In 2003 I was looking for a violin teacher and I was 21 year old that time. I found miss Cynthia studio located in Irvine and decided to meet her in person and ready for my violin lessons which I am dreaming studying violin since I was little ( I moved to the United States in 2001 ) my English at that time was very poor in speaking and listening I did afraid how we gonna communicate and study my violin lessons. Fortunately,ms Cynthia was and still be my mentor my inspiration and always showing her great ability and talent to work with adult student like me. I am saying here about her experiences not only working with students from toddler up to teenage. She is very knowledgeable to work with adult students like me as an example. I was studying violin with ms Cynthia for 4 years and finished book 4 Suzuki method. That was my incredible achievement that I never thought I would get from anywhere other than ms Cynthia studio and her teaching. I am currently working and playing violin on the side for my local churches and some special events during the year. I was helping ms Cynthia teaching violin for young students at occtac in Santa Ana for couple seasons. If you are very interested how to play a violin doesn't matter what age you are ( it's never late to start to working on anything you love ) please don't hesitate to contact ms Cynthia about her passionate teaching and assisting you 😘 thank you ms Cynthia for being such a wonderful violin teacher. If you have any questions about how I witnessed my experience with ms Cynthia studio and her teaching. Please feel free to email me at tuanhoang0330@gmail.com . I would love to give her 5 stars on this review.

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!

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!

I don't fool around with teaching. If the student isn't serious enough, I won't hesitate to drop them. Money isn't my main objective in my work. I love to provide excellent quality of service and I expect students to as well. As far as my other services, I've had much experience in the fields of IT work and wedding planning.

As a violin teacher, my goal is to create a positive learning environment while cultivating your love for music. Each lesson is tailored to meet students' individual learning style and goals. I hold both a bachelor and master's degree from Rotterdam Conservatoire, The Netherlands, as well as a certificate of teaching from Rotterdam Conservatoire. My rates: - 1 hour -- $60 - 45 minutes -- $40 - 30 minutes -- $30 I charge an additional $10 to travel to your home and only teach 45-minute or 1-hour lessons if the lesson is in your home. I look forward to hearing from you! Jan
