I signed up with Mindy for violin lessons and just had my first session. As a complete beginner, her explanations were very useful. I am looking forward to my next sessions.

I highly recommend Ilana. I contacted Ilana just a few weeks before our wedding and asked for some songs which were not regular for weddings. She not only said yes to all of our songs and found us a cellist quickly, but was also responsive to discuss all the details to make sure the performance go well. At the wedding, they arrived early and our guests loved their music! My husband and I feel very grateful for their wonderful presence at our wedding!

    My 8yr has been learning violin from Helena for 2 years. She is very friendly, patient, considerate while being professional and holding a high standard for her student. Her consistency in teaching and passion in music go a long way with the student. I'm very thankful that we found her.

    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.

    I have worked with Otis for nearly 7 years in a string quartet. I have seen him teach a wide age range and background of students in many contexts. I have observed Otis giving coachings, lessons, and masterclasses and in all of those settings he flourishes. His teaching style is dynamic, adaptive, and creative. He is very responsive to a student’s needs, and his expertise is shared in a compassionate and patient way. When a tactic may not be resonating with the student, Otis will deftly try fresh approaches. His creative thinking and insight is uniquely rich and engaging, and I highly recommend Otis as a teacher for all ages and levels of violin playing.

    I have three kids all taking music lessons at the school. Its great to be able to bring them to the school and have them take lessons at the same time. The teachers are very inspiring and professional. We will be here for years!

    Michele is a wonderful teacher! I am taking violin lessons after several years of not playing and she is very encouraging. After years of playing classical music, I am enjoying taking lessons to explore other styles of music, such as folk music. She has an extensive background that allows for this kind of exploration.

    My name is Thomas. I've been playing guitar for over 15 years now. I want to teach students to play what they want while also learning the basic fundamentals of guitar. If they want to learn their favorite pop song I'm going to teach them it, if they want to become an amazing guitar player I will teach them how to become that as well.
