Paul Grether is a very talented musician and teacher and a great person. He is wonderful with kids. He is sweet, smart, motivational, caring and funny. My 9 year old son loves him and loves his guitar lessons. He gave up tennis to have two guitar lessons a week. Paul is so affordable to top it off that we are able to afford two one hour lessons a week. I am thrilled to pieces. Anyone would be lucky to have guitar lessons with Paul.

Paul is amazing!!!! He is so patient and supportive as an instructor. So pleased with my decision to hire Paul. He has a great relationship with my 6 year old and I am confident in his ability to teach her how to play the guitar. Paul is so awesome that I decided to take guitar lessons as well! Looking forward to making music with my daughter!!! Thank you Paul!!!

Sid gave guitar lessons to my daughter (14). He was recommended to us by a friend who has a 12 year old son that Sid taught. He is a great teacher and I can tell he is good at relating to kids of all ages. It is obvious, Sid has an appreciation and a passion for music and I would highly recommend him to anyone!

Going to Peaceland Music has been a very outstanding experience. My teacher, John, is very knowledgable with guitar, piano, and overall music theory. John is a very funny guy and I'm glad I've been taking guitar lessons with him for the past year and a half. He's made learning guitar very fun and interesting. Aside from learning scales and theory, you also can choose a song and John can work on it with you and help you make your performance of it better. But make sure to practice the theory and scales he gives you! You will fall behind very quick, because the lessons build off of what you previously learned. John is very good at working with people at a variety of different levels. It doesn't matter if you're beginning, intermediate, or advanced, he'll work with you at your level and help build on what you know.

For more than two years I have taken piano lessons from Esther Sanborn and I can say that I am quite pleased with my growth and progress. Let me preface this by saying that I am an older adult and have over the years developed bad habits in my technique. Ms Sanborn helped me correct these with her unending patience and insight. I love her insistence on good technique, ensuring that her students become better players. She is very respectful of my personal taste in the classical music that I choose to play, and has always been very encouraging whenever I express doubt about my abilities. Esther Sanborn is a true professional who knows music, and her love of the piano is palpable. It makes each lesson a joy.

My daughter has been taking piano lessons with Ms. Esther for more than two years. During this time, I have witnessed her fine qualities as a teacher. Ms. Esther is enthusiastic and passionate about music. She has imparted her love of music onto my daughter. Ms. Esther has always treated my daughter as an individual and customized her lessons according to her need. When my daughter performs well, Ms. Esther acknowledges her accomplishment. When my daughter struggles with a lesson, Ms. Esther encourages with positive and caring words. I highly respect Ms. Esther's natural gift for teaching.

I am eight years old and I have been going to Miss Esthers studio for piano lessons ever since I moved over to California with my family. She is a very good teacher and has a very clean studio and house. She also has a cat named Pumpkin! Miss Esther is very nice and encouraging. She lets you have your choice of pieces too. I really enjoy playing duets with her. I love it when I go to her classes and I am looking forward to it every week.

My granddaughter Emily wanted to take singing lessons and also learn how to play the piano. I'm so glad that we found Sharon Winer. She is an amazing teacher and my granddaughter is already singing much better and has learned to play quite a few songs on the piano. I couldn't imagine a better teacher and I would recommend her highly to anyone who is looking for a voice or piano teacher. My name is Emily and I wanted to learn how to play the piano and sing better. My grandmother found Sharon Winer and I am so glad she did. Sharon is the best singing and piano teacher ever I have learned so many songs on the piano from her and my singing has gotten way better. I love taking lessons with Sharon she's an amazing music teacher.

Charlyn is extremely patient and offers lots of positive feedback and encouragement. My kids came a long way, fast, under her tutelage. I also take lessons from her and although I don't practice as much as I should, she is never judgmental or disappointed. Anyone would be lucky to have her as a teacher. She's got a great personality, easy to talk to, and all around a very nice person and great teacher!

Omar was a great teacher who made each lesson challenging but fun at the same time. I learned a lot from him in a short time about finger picking and chord progressions, and he introduced me to a lot of perfect songs to learn on guitar that I wouldn't have known otherwise.

When I arrived NYC, I was looking for a vocal coach who would help me overcome some vocal challenges that I was facing, especially in my passagio. I am a high tenor, so high notes have never been a challenge, but surprisingly, the challenge was being my middle upper range, right where the change to head voice happens. Previous vocal lessons did not help me to solve this problem. Sean, with patience, care, deep knowledge and an incredible ear, helped me deconstruct my vocal technique so I would understand my challenges and the reasons underlying my vocal challenges. He truly showed that he understood what I was going through! He also helped me spot and combat bad vocal habits I had acquired through the years. While singing well and keeping your voice healthy is a job that never stops, he has provided me with the tools to move forward as a singer and keep the good path. I am even thinking of going back to the studio and put out new music soon! Every time I walk out of a lesson with Sean I feel like I am singing better than ever, and I cannot wait to work with him again in the future. I am sure that If you do work with him, you will feel the same way. Thank You Sean!!

So Great! They are experts in the field of singing, no question. The education I received from VS Music Studios prepped me for professional auditions and Sean taught me how to sing with ease and freedom. Additionally, I sound awesome! I am so happy that I chose to go with VS Music Studios these last few years. It's definitely worth every dollar and every mile I drove.

The best voice lessons I have ever experienced! I have worked with other singing teachers before, but Van and Sean have transformed the way I sing and my voice has never felt so free. I'm able to sing higher and lower than before and I can sing songs that were very difficult now with ease. I love it! Thanks Van and Sean!

My experience with Linda was very positive. Linda is a very patient, knowledgeable, and mild mannered teacher. She is clear and concise with direction and explains things so that my sons understood what they were doing right, what they needed to improvement on, and what the expectations were. Linda was punctual and ready at my sons lesson start times and had each of their sessions well planned out. She is dedicated to them learning piano and seeing them progress. I would not hesitate to refer her service to anyone who wants their child to learn music.

Linda has been my son's private cello teacher for many years. With her help he jumped straight into the advanced chamber orchestra at high school as a freshman. We recently added music theory to his regular weekly lessons and as a result his grade for his AP music theory class at the high school is a 99.5%. Here's hoping for a 5 on his AP test!

My last piano lesson was over 15 years ago! My teacher was great but she stuck to classical. I told her I wanted something more "fun" but Ragtime was not quite what I had in mind. I thought of taking lessons again for years and finally took action a few months ago. I was so nervous because I have forgotten everything! Sylvia is very patience, fun and knowledgably. She has a great personality and I feel very at ease taking lessons from her. So far, my lessons have been refreshers and I have been able to pick things up quickly - mainly because she is that great of a teacher. I look forward to my lessons and I cannot wait to get to the point where I can play something simple like a Yanni piece perfectly.

My son has been taking piano lessons from Ms. Kaiser (he's more formal with her -- I believe everyone else calls her by her first name) for six months. He absolutely LOVES it. I took several years of lessons (played throughout high school and college) and generally play for fun, so I am not clueless when it comes to music. I am also a teacher (just not a music teacher). I find that Marguerite is amazing at her craft -- both playing and teaching. She is very in tune to young students and knows when they are tired with one activity. She quickly moves on to something else! I love this approach. Additionally, she does not teach JUST piano. Students learn singing, rhythm through percussion, note reading, AND piano. I was not taught this way, though I really wish I was! Additionally, she teaches the students perfect pitch from day one. She truly is a special gem of a teacher. My son loves her dearly and we are thankful to have such a great teacher in our lives. He is now on to composing his own tunes. I am amazed with him and thankful we have such a great teacher to nurture his musical creativity. You won't regret hiring Marguerite!

If I was to summarize our experience with Ms. Mary Jo as my daughter's piano teacher, 3 words that come to mind-Passion, Expertise, Perfection. I have a lot of respect and admiration for the work of Mary Jo. She has high standards and is committed in tutoring piano at her home which is a very safe environment. My daughter has been going for past few years and at times I leave her there for an hour so she can have the lesson and practice while I run errands. Mary should charge more for her time. $20/half hour is extremely affordable given the quality you get. Those music places cannot come close to an experienced music guru you find in Mary Jo. Any questions, call me @cell/iPhone-(909)767-2067 Bushra

Mary Jo is such a delight as a piano instructor. I had both my children take lessons from her and was so impressed with her patience and positive attitude that I signed up for lessons myself!

And she made it such an enjoyable pastime, I really liked practicing!
