I have taken jazz piano lessons with Clifford for 3 years. He is knowledgeable regarding both jazz and classical music, with formal training and performance experience in both. He helped me with technique, theory and approaches to jazz material that I was playing in separate jazz combo classes.

Juan Carlos is such a great teacher. He is helping my son learn piano and teaching him how to use his voice properly. He is patient, kind, and clear when teaching my 12 year old who is not very confident yet with his singing. My son is learning how to listen and match pitch. Juan Carlos always finds a teaching approach to help my son understand what to do. I definitely recommend Juan Carlos! Melanie Hernandez

I'm picking up piano again after having lost contact with it for many many years. Toby saw me play in our first meeting and then was able to recommend some pieces good for my level, she recommended the pieces after listening to my preference, and then I picked which piece i was interested in working on. The piece she recommended that I am currently working fits my criteria very well, it is the right level for me with some challenges that allow me to work on the techniques. She also teaches music theory, and she played for me a piece she composed beautifully. She also played some pieces for me to get familiar with pieces of different composers. She is good for beginner as well as advanced level classes. Meeting with Toby allows me to enjoy playing music again and improve my playing, I am looking forward to continuing the piano lessons with her and enjoy some more piano playin!

I can't say enough about my experience with Ken. He is very intuitive. His lessons are balence between exercises and therory. I have alway found myself mentally stimulated, with plenty of work for my fingers. He is very energetic and reaches out between lessons to give you more music to play with. His warm and friendly personality make the lessons fly by. He also willing to work through tought topics without cutting the lesson short (schedule permitting ). I really appreciate his effort into his students. He has also been pretty flexible with my shedule. As an adult these are not the piano lessons I hated as a child. Lol

Both of our kids ( 12 and 10 ) are having a nice time with Lynn while learning their drills. She connects with them individually and helps them learn their drills in a smooth way. Our daughter loves her voice and piano lessons. On the other hand, our son did not want to take piano lessons at all but after a few lessons with Lynn, he decided to stay with it! How great is that! Thank you so much Lynn!!! :-) I am happy and looking forward to seeing more of their progress!

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've been learning piano under Rebecca's guidance for 2 years now, and she's an incredible teacher. She's very friendly, and has made learning piano a very fun experience, even going out of her way to find music that I particularly enjoy learning while still providing a sufficient challenge. I've come to look forward to every lesson I have with her, and couldn't recommend her more.

I have been taking piano lessons with Jeffrey for the past year. Although I started taking lessons when I was young and have studied under other great teachers, Jeffrey stands out among them as exceptionally gifted. He is eternally patient and has a great sense of humor. I always look forward to seeing him. Besides his affability, the depth and breadth of his musical knowledge are hard to find, even among professionals. I would recommend him to anyone, regardless of age or proficiency.

We have been working with Ms. White since January 2016. My boys, ages 6 and 7 walked out of their very first lesson knowing “Mary Had A Little Lamb” and this quick, concrete “take away” gave them a sense of excitement and confidence! Ms. White is very thoughtful with her instruction. She has realistic and responsive goals--like helping accommodate a variety of sports seasons and understanding the difference between her student’s temperament and attention span. She has nurtured an intrinsic and age appropriate interest and exposure to the world of piano playing. My boys pick up and play piano on their own and they love teaching their father and me their new skills. I would highly recommend Ms. White for piano lessons.

I have been taking jazz piano lessons from Brent for the past 8 months and I've really enjoyed getting to work with him. He is very knowledgeable on the topic of jazz. Every week we practice improvising over jazz standards and he plays along with me on the piano or sometimes drums of there is a kit in the room. Brent if friendly and cares about his students. Would recommend to anyone wanting to take drum or piano lessons!

I have been studying classical piano with Talyn Imhoff over the past 10 months. She has helped me immensely with sight reading, technique, and articulation. She makes the lessons fun and lets me choose the pieces I want to work on. She is patient, kind, and a very accomplished pianist. I would highly recommend her to anyone who wants to take their playing to the next level!
