    So far my son is getting a lot out of these lessons. It seems Will understands how a teen thinks and how to approach learning to play. He is enjoying what he is learning.

  5. #5 Natalia

    (5 reviews)

    Patricia N.

    We had an intoductory lesson. My children like her very much. We like her philosophy, that the child must enjoy the style of music he/she is playing. I like the fact she will hold piano recitals. She understands that schedules are flexible and has indicated that make up lessons are always encouraged. This works well for our family. Our official lessons begin next week and we are very hopeful.

  6. #6 Classical Piano

    (5 reviews)

    Amir B.

    I am really glad that I found Nicholas and worked with him. He was exactly what I was looking for. I wanted to work on Chopin's ballade, etudes and a Rachmaninoff prelude. He gave me tips that changed my understanding of how you should look at practicing. I can now analyse every bit of the piece and make an exercise out of it which completely chances the result you get per unit of time practiced. I highly recommend Nicholas to whoever has the passion to learn piano and puts the time and effort. Just listen to what he says and absorb it. You'll see results from day 1

  • Piano For Beginners

    Kelly Keys

    (14 reviews)

    This is simply piano! Everyone can play piano, and I can teach you how to play Amazing Grace in less than 5 minutes. I encourage my students to improvise and learn how to use their creativity to play songs. Students will learn how to read music and play songs with sight reading and chord structures.

    Alison's Music Lessons

    (12 reviews)

    We have been working with Ms. White since January 2016. My boys, ages 6 and 7 walked out of their very first lesson knowing “Mary Had A Little Lamb” and this quick, concrete “take away” gave them a sense of excitement and confidence! Ms. White is very thoughtful with her instruction. She has realistic and responsive goals--like helping accommodate a variety of sports seasons and understanding the difference between her student’s temperament and attention span. She has nurtured an intrinsic and age appropriate interest and exposure to the world of piano playing. My boys pick up and play piano on their own and they love teaching their father and me their new skills. I would highly recommend Ms. White for piano lessons.

  • Professional Music Teacher

    Karin Swanson

    (12 reviews)

    We found out about Karin's teaching talent through a co-worker of mine. When I spoke to Karin about our daughter we were extremely motivated by Karin's prior teaching history and educational achievements. One can certainly feel comfortable on these fronts, but one never knows whether their child will stay interested in learning to play an instrument. Karin has an inherent gift at instilling such interest. Our daughter has been taking lessons for over one year and not only has she stayed interested, she has gone so far as to compose her first piece! Many of us have taken music lessons as children, but it takes a unique person to inspire a child to go beyond the wrote music practice. Karin has this ability to 100% connect and our daughter is now passionate about learning the art of music. Our daughter was ready to move on from a basic keyboard six months ago and Karin also helped us distill down, from the overwhelming number of options, an appropriate next-step purchase. This journey has been extremely special for us. We highly recommend Karin to other parents as we have seen our daughter flourish.

    The Singer's Heart Studio

    (10 reviews)

    I have taken both voice and piano lessons from Brigitte over the course of a couple of years. She is extremely dedicated, capable and knowledgeable both in music theory and practical performance. Brigitte arranges performance opportunities throughout the year in front of an audience, so there are ample opportunities to put what you've learned into practice on the stage. (She also teaches drumming, although I have not taken any drum lessons from her.) Brigitte works well across the age groups, from small children to adults. She does expect you to be focused and dedicated, however, so it is not a play time for younger children, but rather a chance to learn some real skills.

    Interval: The Next Step ~ Interval Music and Drama School

    (8 reviews)

    Anne is truly delightful as a voice teacher and a person ~ funny, sweet, and EXTREMELY knowledgeable and experienced in vocal training/music. Her studio ~ Interval: The Next Step ~ truly is an all-service vocal gym which works both the physical and mental aspects of voice and performance. Initially Anne started me on a range of different and effective exercises to strengthen and tone my voice ~ just as one would for muscles in the gym! Some of these included: "Vocalise" (voice + exercise), sustaining tones, projecting, as well as using body movement and facial expression to encourage and enhance the sound. In addition to breathing and body position, I had no idea one's voice could be so heavily influenced by the mouth and neck position. To continue my music education Anne has taught me about theory, rhythm, music history and basic composition, everything from sight reading, to basic note recognition (for which she has a fun flash card game). Although I had taken piano lessons as a child, I had not studied music since then. Anne was able to take my basic knowledge and expand upon it /fill in the gaps to give me a solid base on which to build a true vocal style of my own. Anne's teaching style is hands on, direct and thorough. She not only knows her subject inside out but is able to cater her teaching style to suit me and my needs, interests, and goals. She explains everything in detail so I know the background of why I am doing something and that helps me remember and correct it if it is wrong. Every lesson is different and she almost always has something new to teach me or a new exercise to embark on. It also doesn't hurt that she herself has an amazing voice so that is very inspirational for me during my lessons. She is very warm and makes me feel really comfortable ~ amazing considering I had never sang in front of anyone before. Because of her demeanor I am not even embarrassed when I am out of tune! After less than 3 months my range has now expanded a full octave! My technique has improved, and I am beginning to stage mini "performances" for Anne to critic in preparation for what I have planned. Not only am I sounding exceedingly better but I am actually finding it easier to sing! Thank you, Anne!
