Coastal Music Studios....hmmm. where do I start! We began with Coastal Music Studios about three years ago when my two daughters took a "free" week-long music summer camp. I was so impressed by the hands-on learning that was taking place that I knew I needed to look into this place a bit closer. Found out that they not only offered the music camp but also a '"free" children's choir, which both my girls have attended. I quickly set up an appointment to see if my girls would like to take music lessons. After that meeting, one daughter began piano lessons and the other voice. Mr. Andy and Ms. Pam have been absolutely amazing with regards to my girls' and their music experience. They are patient, knowledgeable, engaging, and caring. Those qualities are extremely important to all children, but when you have a child with special needs, it becomes even more so. My daughter is deaf and has been taking piano lessons with Ms. Pam for the past 2 1/2 years. On my daughters first lesson, Ms. Pam had researched cochlear implants and already had a plan in place to ensure that my daughter would get the most of her lesson. And then there's my other daughter, spunky, feisty, and full of piss and vinegar, and Ms. Pam knows how to deal with that, too! We cannot thank them enough and appreciate all that they do for all children to bring a love of music to their hearts. I would highly recommending Coastal Music Studios, you cannot find a better studio!
I took Violin lessons with Nader for about eight years, and I can confidently say that those eight years made me the musician that I am today. When I first met with Nader, I could barely scratch out an elementary level piece. However, I do believe that I can now play any piece with the ability and technique I learned from Nader. Each lesson consists of scales and arpeggios, scale studies, etudes, bow studies, and one or two pieces of music. Nader teaches with an emphasis on the fundamentals (scales, arpeggios, scale studies, etc.) so as to build the best foundation possible. As far as music goes, the pieces vary with respect to time period and style. Over the years I played and performed several Baroque pieces (Bach Sonatas and Partitas, Leclair Sonata) some Classical pieces (Mozart Violin Concerto) and many Romantic pieces (to name a few: Wienawski Violin Concerto, Debussys Claire De Lune, Brahms Hungarian Dance, Saint-Saens Introduction et. Rondo Capriccioso, Bruch Violin Concerto, Manuel de Fallas Asturiana) and a few modern pieces (e.g. Barbers Violin Concerto). For the beginning student, Nader usually chooses a few selections from the Suzuki books, although he doesnt necessarily teach the Suzuki method. He will also incorporate sight singing (Melodia) and ear training into the lesson to ensure that the student develops and sharpens a proper musical ear. Over the years I was introduced to and learned many of the important techniques associated with stringed instruments (e.g. vibrato, octaves, fingered octaves, double and triple stops, chords, artificial harmonics, Spicatto, Staccato (and other common bow manipulations), proper shifting between all positions, pizzicato, phrasing, etc.) He has an extensive knowledge of technique and composition which he uses to give the student the best education possible on the matter. Nader also makes sure the student understands that there is more to music than simply playing the notes. He teaches how to phrase and incorporate ones own musicality into the piece. He also teaches the student about the culture and history surrounding the composer/piece that they are working on. This is not only informative, but also keeps one interested even if they find the piece difficult or frustrating. There is an annual concert where all the students perform the pieces they had been working on with Nader. This is a fun event with a relaxed yet professional atmosphere where students can showcase their talent and technical improvement. I always enjoyed these concerts as they were a tangible reminder of my own improvement and achievements. In retrospect, I found my lessons with Nader to be a very well-rounded experience. Not only did I learn how to play an instrument, but I learned how to be a musician. He is an awesome teacher and I cherish the time I spent learning from him; I wouldn't trade my experiences with Nader for anything. He always pushed me beyond what I thought I was capable of and I learned so much from that. He is a very amiable, patient, passionate, generous, and patient teacher, so dont be afraid to call! Whether you are young or old, beginner or advanced, there is always more to learn. Let Nader be your next teacher!
I had scheduled Alex Swanson for piano tuning, and I found him to be extremely professional and his work to be of great and high quality as needed and as expected. Overall very highly recommended and am truly looking forward to utilizing his business again in the future.
My daughter had violin lessons with Ms Amy for a year. We loved the convenience of having lessons in our own home with a great teacher, as her lessons were taught privately via Skype. Our only regret was that it would have been even better to work with her in person, but seeing as we lived in another state, that wasn't an option for us. Ms Amy was a great teacher! She was an inspiration to our daughter and helped her to love the violin.
US Music Lessons is great. My daughter's been receiving piano lessons for a little over a year now and it's been a positive experience. The teachers are nice and their rates are reasonable, better than similar services out there.
We had a couple of piano lessons. Mr. Crespo is very knowledgeable, friendly and easy going. He works well with children. Music lessons online offer the convenience of being at your own home without unnecessary travel time.
I received a very interesting offer of a discount in case I decided to book today and there were no additional enrollment fees (as it was the case with another supplier of services). Tony got in touch with me immediately and... I can't wait for my first piano lesson.
Mr. Violin has been teaching my 13 year-old son violin for 4 years give or take. He’s great. He’s exercises lots of patience. He provides variety in lessons, squeezing a lot in one lesson. My son learns scales, classics, and other songs based off his interests and familiarity. He’s always very pleasant. You can tell he enjoys what he does.
We are thrilled to have found Mr. Rotzler. In just a few lessons he has taught our 14 year old things she has never been taught before in spite of having 4 previous violin teachers. Mr. Rotzler is not only exceptionally talented on the violin, but he also knows how to teach it! His dynamic personality makes the lessons fun while at the same time teaching proper technique.He is also very positive and motivating to students of all levels and inspires them to do their best.
Our 5 year-old has improved a great deal while taking lessons with Amy. She has made it fun and has personalized her lessons to his interest and developmental stage. He now has a better posture while playing and has started to read music.
Anthony has been great. Easy to communicate with, a schedule that meets our needs logistically and most importantly my son is really enjoying his piano lessons. I hear progress. We look forward to a long student-teacher relationship with Anthony.
Having just finished my education at some of the finest music schools, I have not only accessed the highest level of training, but have directly experienced what it takes to prepare for a career in music. Whether you simply play as a Hobby, hope your skills will earn you a scholarship to a Universtiy, or aim to enter a top music school with the intention of having a career as a musician, I can develop a plan specific to your level and goals that will get us on track.
Flavia is an amazing violinist and teacher. She has the unique ability to relate to and connect with students and listeners of all ages and backgrounds. I have had the pleasure of performing with and learning from Flavia and from the beginning it felt like we'd known each other for years. Whether you're looking for an instructor or performer, Flavia will provide you with an excellent professional service!
I Found Catie Longhi to be an excellent teacher. She pays attention to detail and is very easy to work with. She has a full command of the instrument and has me playing better than I ever did before. I highly recommend her.
