Latest Review: Clifford is working on a creative new project to compose music to a new set of lyrics I have written. Working with a piano he'd never seen before, on a project he'd never seen before, he quickly got into the creative and fun spirit of it, and in a short time, in our first session, he had most of the music nailed. I am looking forward to the upcoming tweaks to make a good project even better. Clifford is very talented, he has great knowledge of music, and a creative spirit. He is comfortable working in your world, but in doing so, he brings his considerable professionalism to bear. That makes you want to be more serious as a student, because you realize that a master is there teaching you. will be taking piano lessons from Clifford when the current project is completed. Thank you, Clifford!

Latest Review: 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

She is very professional in setting and holding reasonable expectations for the kids. Her teaching approach is holistic, providing a deep sense of appreciation for music. The kids love her and you will too!

Latest Review: 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.

Latest Review: 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!

Latest Review: Christina taught both my girls piano for several years. Not only did they learn piano itself, but they learned so much from her about music and music theory. The experience was invaluable. Though they eventually turned their attention to flute at school, the solid base they built with Chris will serve them for years to come.
