I recently hired Toby for lessons in composition and to help me gain more agility and greater finger dexterity. I played piano for 5 years as a child, but stopped in high school because I became too busy. I also wanted to start writing my own music. I have lyrics, but I don't know how to put them to music. Toby has been working with my daughter who started piano lessons 3 years ago. My daughter had some interest in playing, but had a hard time getting motivated to practice. Toby got her back on track and excited about practicing. She is unique in allowing her intermediate students to play with her band which plays originals, including her own which are a mix of classical and rock. Toby has had an amazing influence on my daughter who went from not knowing how to play to playing intermediate pieces with a wonderful tone, dynamics, and dexterity. She is currently working on a some Chopin (Toby is most skilled in the Romantic era pieces such as Chopin and Rachmaninoff) and the Mozart Turkish March sonata. My daughter has also learned how to write songs and compose music to match them. Toby studied at Berklee which is well-known as the premier school for songwriting and composition, and it shows in her teaching. I am so excited to have an opportunity to work with her. She is a fantastic teacher and her original music is gorgeous and inspirational.

I have been taking classical piano lessons with Mrs. Matoush for 2 years now and am delighted with my progress. Toby is an excellent teacher with an unmatched passion for classical music. I have progressed at a rapid rate in spite of not having a great deal of time to practice daily. Toby really knows how to motivate and inspire her students to play and integrates music theory with a nice blend of classical music songs so that her students learn the fundamentals, but also enjoy playing classical songs very quickly. She is fantastic at picking the most appropriate music books. Hearing her play her beautiful original compositions is such an inspiration that I have decided to also learn songwriting from her. Toby and her band are working on making a YouTube video of one of her compositions and I can't wait to hear and see it. My daughter is now studying with her as well as she has grown to love hearing classical music too and wants to study rock piano with Toby too.

I started piano lessons with Toby in January 2017. Toby is one of the best teachers I have ever known. She is incredibly patient, well-organized, and customizes lessons to fit each student's unique needs. I am a Chopin lover and Toby specializes in Romantic period composers like Chopin. She truly cares about the progress of her students. Toby lets her students choose their pieces and she often plays select classical pieces to inspire and push me. I am starting a beginning intermediate Chopin piece already as she has really inspired me to practice and improve. She has also played some of her original compositions which are beautiful. She is a virtuoso pianist. I feel so lucky to have her as a teacher. Don't hesitate to contact her for lessons.

Prior to my time with Ms. Laura, I had taken four years of piano lessons and had extremely disliked playing the piano. Ms. Laura changed that, and now I love playing the piano. She has helped me develop my piano skills so that I can play any piece of music I want. Not only does Laura make good suggestions of music to practice, she is fine with me working on pieces I have an interest in learning to play. For the past 5 years, I have always looked forward to going to my piano lessons because Ms. Laura is energetic, supportive and very easy to talk to. And she has cats! She is a piano teacher I definitely recommend.

My son has been learning from Ms Laura for the past 5 months and just loves her. He is very excited to go to lessons and is motivated to practice given her incentive techniques. We are very pleased with our experience with Laura. She communicates well with the parents via email and understands children very well. Highly recommend Laura for beginning piano lessons!!

Eteri was my teacher for 10 wonderful, amazing years! She introduced me to piano from the basics at the age of 8, and I fell in love with playing piano ever since then. Not only does she build a strong musical foundation for her students, but also she will truly inspire you to reach your full potential in terms of technical abilities and performance. She's great at encouraging students from the youngest age with games, stickers, prizes - which is so important when children have a short attention span. As I got older, I truly came to love music and piano thanks to Eteri's own love for music and the great satisfaction I got from mastering pieces that were more and more challenging. I am so thankful to Eteri for encouraging me every step of the way with her guiding words and dedicated attitude. She truly gave me a gift that will last a lifetime!

I played piano for a few years before I started playing with Eteri. Eteri is the best piano teacher I've ever had and really helped me get serious about my piano playing and actually start practicing. She makes the lessons enjoyable for every student, so the students learn to appreciate music. The recitals twice a year are really fun. You get to hear what kids from different age groups are playing and hang out with them. Everyone is pretty close and its a wonderful enviroment. If you need a piano teacher, I extremely suggest Eteri.

I been taking my daughter to Eteri for the past 5 years and I couldn't be happier, She is wonderful!. She doesn't just focus in teaching how to play but she makes sure kids are well round it in the basics. I do recommend her to all of my friends without a doubt. The Piano recitals are my favorite time of year since We get a chance to see our daughter perform and the wonderful surprises through the entire show are not to be miss. Eteri has become more then a teacher to us. We feel she is more like family.

Lin Chiao has been my piano teacher for the past 6 months. She comes over to my place once a week for a 45 minutes session. I am a beginner adult piano student, and having a teacher gives me a direction and helps me understand how a piano piece should sound. Lin has been very patient with all the mistakes I make. She has been careful to adjust the difficulty level to my skill, and provide challenging work if I want to. She is also very friendly and knows a lot of piano playing tricks. I'm excited to work with Lin, and I plan to have her start teaching my 8 year old daughter soon too.

Joann is a wonderful knowledgeable piano instructor. I stared my son in weekly piano lessons with Joann at age 6, last year. I was very impressed with her ability to teach the basics in a way he understood and connected to. He likes and respects her and is eager to learn. Joann is very relaxed, patient, and positive with him. I am very pleased! I would definitely recommend her to other potential students, young or old.

Will was professional all aspects of arranging the lessons and walking me through the initial processes of obtaining an instrument. He was on time and a pleasure for both my 9 year old son and I to work with. He is giving us both lessons. We enjoyed our lessons. Will was patient and gentle. He seems to have a wealth of musical knowledge that he's waiting to share with interested students. By the end of lesson one, we are learning to use our fingers for warm-ups, playing a scale with proper finger placement, playing three chords, and playing a song. He is wise in working with children, knowing they are eager to play a song and thus helps to achieve this. We had fun, are practicing and looking forward to next week!

We have had 3 piano teachers for our grandson. The first two were well qualified, and taught our grandson how to play different pieces of music, however, Mrs. Martinez is the only piano teacher that took the time to step back and have our grandson review how to read music, i.e. names of music notes. That ensured he had the basic music foundation before proceeding forward. This has resulted in amazing growth in his learning abilities to play the piano. Because of Mrs. Martinez dedication to teach at a pace based on her students ability to learn, we highly recommend her for all ages, as well as all levels of piano from the beginner, intermediate, to the more advanced students.

Mrs Martinez has been a huge help for me. I've been wanting to learn the piano for the longest time and I could not have chosen a better teacher. She's very caring, kind, well informed, patient, and encouraging. When I'd get frustrated in having trouble going through a certain piece, she would slow it down and take it step by step, all while being very patient. Doing so helped me tremendously and continue using the advice she's given me. I would definitely recommend her to anyone looking to take piano. My lessons with her were truly the highlight of my week. :)

It is not easy to find the right piano teacher. Some teachers with too much skill don't teach beginners; some that teach beginners don't have enough skill. Sue manages to put it all together in the right combination. She is obviously extremely qualified and talented, but also know how to teach, and teach effectively.

Alan is our family piano instructor. My older son, 12, younger son, 8, and myself, 50 something, have been taking lessons from Alan for over 3 years. He is disciplined in his approach; no short cuts or progressing a student just for the sake of appeasing a parents desire to get from level 1 to 10. He allows us to suggest and play music we like as well as well as work on theory, which has helped everyone. My older son accelerated in jr orchestra (mariba). We are learning and playing both classical music, blues, and jazz. Just cool. -stu

Jessica was one of my favorite piano teachers. She taught me in high school. She was very good at explaining what I needed to work on. She taught me that it's not just about the notes on a sheet, but also about the passion you have while playing. She helped educate me on the background and history of music. She helped me grow and become more confident in my piano playing. She helped me fall more and more in love with music. She is amazing and anyone who is wanting to learn piano should go to her for lessons.(:

I began receiving lessons from Miss Kathleen when I was in the 4th grade. She has been my private tutor for the past 8 years, and we only recently stopped having lessons due to her move. She has played a very big role in becoming the musician I am today. With her help and instruction, I participate in my school's highest orchestra, in the Capitol Symphonic Youth Orchestra, and in events such as District Orchestra. She has always inspired and encouraged me to pursue my music related aspirations and, because of that, I plan on studying music in college and pursue it as a career. I can't imagine what I would have done with out her. Over the years of lessons, she has become more than just a teacher. She is my close friend who I continue to go to for advice.

We took a trial lesson for our children who are older beginners at piano. We were very pleased with the trial and have set lessons to begin soon. Sharon has been very responsive thus far, and she seems exceptionally effective at incorporating critical piano techniques, checking to ensure what the kids were familiar with already from school exposure at the trial. She is bright and engaging, straightforward, and very warm. She sent book lists and PDFs of the first lesson. The kids are looking forward to their lessons and have already practiced faithfully today.

Sharon is very patient and at the same time rigorous about getting every single detail right. She has been very helpful in revising different concepts when I first learnt playing piano many years ago, as well as teaching various piano techniques that I didn't realize was important for the long term, especially guiding me how to fix my hand posture. Thanks Sharon!

My daughter has been with Mina for a year and a half now. She loves going to the piano lessons with her. In my daughter's own words, "Mina makes learning music very fun!". Mina is a very experienced teacher with great passion for music and teaching. She is strict in building a solid foundation for students yet flexible in adjusting her teaching style according to each student’s own learning pattern and personalities. She not only teaches the piano techniques but also shows the students the beauty of music. Her love and enthusiasm for music inspire her students and bring the best out from them. I would definitely recommend Mina.

My 6 y.o. son has been with Mina for a year and a half and my 4.5 y.o. daughter has just started. Both love Ms. Mina and enjoy going to piano lessons. Mina is excellent in adapting her teaching style to both of their personalities (and yes, they are very different from each other) and skill levels, as well as motivating them to work hard. I personally think it's very important to start anything with a good foundation to build on and Mina provides that and much more. I highly recommend Mina to anyone who wants to learn piano.

My daughter has been taking piano and violin lessons from Paul. The piano lessons since age 9 for almost 2 years now, and the violin lessons for a few months now to augment the strings music instruction at her school. He was referred by a family in our neighborhood, and he was open to trial lessons before completely signing on. He goes into music appreciation and history along with his teaching. We have also enjoyed a few recitals of his students along the way - there are three of these each year in student homes, and the anticipation of an upcoming recital is good motivation for the student to practice. For one of these recitals, Paul wrote the sheet music for a popular song that my daughter chose, since there wasn't one readily available. So he goes out of his way to customize the teaching. My daughter has progressed well, and enjoys the experience. I definitely recommend Paul.

Paul taught piano lessons in our home to our three children for ten years. It was a delight to have the lessons going on each week. Paul's style of teaching is very specific to each child. He is a wonderful mentor and teacher. He taught them about the music and the composers and history too. The recitals in the different students homes were very special too. We highly recommend Paul Price.
