Clifford is an accomplished jazz musician who made a special birthday event spectacular. He tailored the performance to meet our needs and we're thankful to him for providing captivating music and making a special evening so memorable.
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.
My boys are enjoying their lessons and having fun. Andi is patient, kind and inspires my boys to do their best.
Garrick's the perfect balance of being understanding and knowing when to push you. He's patient, incredibly knowledgeable about guitar, and lights up every room he walks into. Anyone would be lucky to be his student.
Very patient with my 6 year old and so far it seems to be working. Two lessons down.
I had a great time taking lessons with David this summer. He is friendly and flexible, and helped me learn to sing and play guitar at the same time. We worked through most of Rubber Soul together! Highly recommend!
Sarah is an amazing teacher who's always pushing you to be better. I look forward to our lessons because with each class, I'm learning something new. Not only is she a great teacher but she is also a great person whom I connect with on many levels :)
My family has started lessons with Juan Carlos, and we're happy we found him. He's a patient teacher who structures lessons based on each student's progression and skill set. He also teaches the "right" way, i.e. fundamentals, thereby setting up students for success. It also helps that he's a nice guy and is extremely responsive with scheduling etc.
We weren't sure what to expect from a self-defense class, but Max offered me a good breakdown over email prior to the coming in to teach, and once here, he was good about demonstrating techniques and allowing the class to do as much or as little as they were comfortable with. I found Max's lessons to be practical for the common person, and his teaching style is to the point, but relaxed. He'll answer questions as you go along and help you to chain together the different things he teaches you. We've asked him back for every other week, so he's definitely doing the right things! We have a lot of fun, but also learn a lot from Max.
I am an adult music lover and have always hoped to play my favorite songs on piano. Before learning with Cheryl, I tried to work with other teachers where the adult lessons are mostly casual and lack of important critiques. I feel that I did not improve much during that period of time and I can only play simple songs that sound lame. When I first met Cheryl, she demoed a song I played and I saw clearly the difference between beautiful performance and just playing. Now I have taken lessons from Cheryl for a couple of months. I am quite excited to find that Cheryl is not only a great performer, but also an excellent teacher. She sets high standards for her students and conducts lessons in a systematic manner. Whenever I make mistakes, she will point them out and tell me how to make effective improvements. She also teach me general ideas and tips for practice deliberately. I love her attitude toward playing and teaching piano which let students really achieve excellence and get involved into music. If you are a serious learner for piano, I highly recommend that you take lessons from Cheryl.
Laura is an exceptional piano teacher that has touched my children's lives in many wonderful ways. They both became accomplished pianists, able to play any piece and compose their own music, from having her as their teacher. She earned the kid's respect early on and therefore they always looked forward to their lessons and never complained about practicing. Her sense of humor and her caring advice always left the kids with a smile of their face as they left her house from a lesson. Laura is a treasure; a true gem!
My 11 year old daughter recently started taking lessons from Ms. Matoush and I can't believe the progress and enthusiasm! My daughter was very excited about learning, but seems to lack discipline (I bought her books and videos to learn at home; but that didn't end up working out). These in-person lessons have gotten her genuinely excited and she's practicing and progressing wonderfully now. I'm considering enrolling my 9 year old son as well, since now he's suddenly interested in playing the piano too!
Sedat is a very patient teacher. He is enjoyable to work with. He is great at teaching no matter how much experience you have. He has great teaching skills and is incredibly talented. I have only taken 3 bass lessons and I have learned so much and can't wait to learn more. I highly recommend Sedat for anyone who wants to learn guitar.
I'm having a lot of fun! The hour just slips by and my monologue improves tremendously from the start of the lesson. It's also one-on-one so I get all the attention I need.
He's very nice and patient. Just have had a few lessons but he's good!
I have been taking Spanish lessons from Ms. Price. She is incredibly personable, knowledgeable and helpful. My Spanish skills have soared since I've started with her. Very friendly, she is an excellent teacher. She knows where weak points are and knows how to explain advanced subjects in a way which is very understandable. I am definitely going to continue lessons and I highly recommend Ms. Price to anyone who is seeking to improve their language skills.
Emily was superbly welcoming and nice. She was very understanding of how nervous my daughter felt when she started, and how self conscious my daughter was about her singing. Emily encouraged her and brought up her confidence by a lot. My daughter loves going to the lessons and enjoys singing a lot nowadays. I would recommend Emily to people of all ages and ability.
I enjoyed how Alison interacted with my children in teaching the guitar and piano.not only was she professional, knowledgable, but she made the lessons enjoyable. My children look forward to their lessons & I would reccomend her wholeheartedly
Kenny interviewed me and helped me find a comfortable beginning into the world of music. I thought I was going to take guitar lessons; instead, he taught me music with a bit of guitar to go along, and opened up a whole new world of pleasure. Unfortunately for me, I haven't found time to get back to the structured lessons but I play every day because of the things Kenny taught me. I can't imagine a better, or more fun way to learn, than to sit with Kenny and give it a shot.
Sam is very patient and easy to work with. He personalizes the lessons in line with the student's goals.
