Kelly is an enthusiastic teacher! He is willing to spend over time with my kids and makes them engaged. My kids always look forward for his lessons. He also provides my little four year old daughter and myself free lessons! We like him a lot and highly recommend him!

As a lifelong guitarist who was self taught I decided that I needed to try my hand at a different instrument. I had always wanted to learn the piano so I decided to give it a go. Being a self taught musician, I had lots of bad habits that I took with me to my piano lessons with Stella. She was incredibly patient with me and helped me undo decades of bad practice habits along with teaching me good habits to replace them with. Her knowledge of music and her talent on the piano are clearly evident and she knows how to translate that into teaching others, which is an often challenging task. All in all, the lessons were a valuable experience that I would certainly recommended to anyone interested in learning piano.

David has been teaching our son for a while now and we can't imagine having a better teacher for him. Excellent teacher: skilled, patient, creative. Our son looks forward to his guitar lessons each week and he wouldn't have come this far without David.

We weren't sure what to expect from a self-defense class, but Max offered me a good breakdown over email prior to the coming in to teach, and once here, he was good about demonstrating techniques and allowing the class to do as much or as little as they were comfortable with. I found Max's lessons to be practical for the common person, and his teaching style is to the point, but relaxed. He'll answer questions as you go along and help you to chain together the different things he teaches you. We've asked him back for every other week, so he's definitely doing the right things! We have a lot of fun, but also learn a lot from Max.

My family has started lessons with Juan Carlos, and we're happy we found him. He's a patient teacher who structures lessons based on each student's progression and skill set. He also teaches the "right" way, i.e. fundamentals, thereby setting up students for success. It also helps that he's a nice guy and is extremely responsive with scheduling etc.

Garrick is not only an amazing teacher, but his excitement about music is contagious! He brings an abundance of great energy to every session. He caters to the music I enjoy learning, as well as turning me on to artists I didn't know much about. He's not only a great teach but also a great person. I highly recommend him for both beginners and seasoned players.

I've been taking lessons with Sara for about 3 or 4 months and she is so great! She has such a friendly personality and made me feel comfortable since our first lesson. She really knows how to explain things in ways that you understand best so that you can grow and improve without ever feeling criticized or judged. She's a great teacher and our lessons are super fun and have helped my voice so much!

I'm having a lot of fun! The hour just slips by and my monologue improves tremendously from the start of the lesson. It's also one-on-one so I get all the attention I need.

I have taken piano lessons from Lynn for ten years. She has been the best teacher I could ever imagine. I especially liked how she would mix up the songs that I was learning so I always had a fair mix of classical songs and popular songs. I feel that she really cares about me and my learning. She went above and beyond to constantly be finding music that would both challenge me and interest me.

Cristian is a very professional tutor, proficient in teaching vocabulary, grammar and pronunciation. I like that he brings a white board to write out clarifications of what he is teaching. I especially appreciate his patience. I am hard of hearing and he has to repeat words multiple times for me to hear and repeat correctly but he never appears frustrated with all that effort. He is a very good conversationalist, making it easier for me to maintain my end of the dialog in Spanish

Verified review

I used to play in band as a kid, but I never explored singing very much. I wanted to try something new and was curious to know if I was any good. Ashten has started from the very beginning with me. I never knew how much went into singing before I took lessons with her. And she's been patient teaching me all of the concepts and works at my pace. I am really enjoying studying the voice and never knew how possible it is to become a better singer if you use the right tools. I'm definitely seeing and hearing very positive results.

I am so glad I found Jeffrey. He is flexible enough to tailor the lessons to my goals. There is a wonderful blend of supportiveness and pushing me to do better. He is just a marvelous teacher. After I had been taking lessons with him for a year my wife was so impressed that she started taking lessons with him too.

Miriam Pantig is amazing!! She's the reason why I am able to hit my falsetto notes! I can't thank her enough. She will teach you the right techniques and ways to preserve your voice so that no matter how much you sing throughout your lifetime, you'll never lose your voice!

Vince is an incredible coach! I have been taking classes and private lessons from Vince for almost five years now, and it has changed my life! I've lost weight, learned many new skills, improved my balance, and most importantly I've gained confidence in myself! This is thanks to Vince's amazing ability as a teacher and coach. He pushes you without taking you too far, he gives you that vote of confidence you need to push through when it gets tough, and his attention to detail will ensure that you become the best athlete you can be. He has brought me from a person who has never thrown a kick to a confident martial artist, thanks largely in part to his level of personal attention - he makes time for all of his students to ensure that everyone grows and improves as much as they can. During private lessons, you get an amazing amount of personal attention and direct support - Vince does not teach a one size fits all program. My private lessons with Vince are an amazing chance to have him push me to work hard, improve my skills significantly, and gain confidence! Vince is patient, observant, and so supportive when he works with his students! I wouldn't be the athlete and martial artist I am today had it not been for Vince's teaching. I recommend him for anyone who is looking for a teacher and trainer to help them become their best!

I've had one lesson with Cindy so far and loved it! She walked me through proper techniques and we did a variety of self-defense training so I was constantly challenged and learning. I can say that after one lesson I already feel much more prepared, but I'm looking forward to learning more and getting stronger in the process! I'd recommend Cindy to anyone who is looking for the perfect balance of self-defense lessons and working out!
