Started my 10 year daughter for her first lesson last week and already our piano sounding good. She’s building a solid foundation going forward in her lessons.

I started taking lessons from Toby in January 2017. I am an adult student that returned to piano lesson after decades. I stopped lessons at 13 y/o. Without lessons, I can read music and "play" the song. But now, with just a few months into my lessons with Toby, I can hear the difference. My songs now have the correct timing, tempo and spirit the composer intended for his songs. What a difference! My husband now recognizes the songs I play. Thanks Toby!

My two boys (9 and 5) have been having piano lessons with Ms. Toby since last year. Ms. Toby is an accomplished pianist and composer. My sons enjoy her friendly, encouraging and professional teaching approach very much and they enjoy practicing at home. Since Ms. Toby treats each student uniquely, her customized lessons benefits my sons a lot. She helps my sons choose the songs they like and so they are motivated to play. My older son is inspired by Ms. Toby's songs, and he plays his own arrangement on Canon which is very impressive. My younger son has very good progress since his very first piano class with Ms. Toby. She holds two recitals a year at a professional recital hall with a Steinway grand piano. I'm happy to have her as our piano teacher.

Sam is simply put - an outstanding music teacher! My three boys have been taking weekly piano lessons with Sam for about a year now and we have seen tremendous progress in them reading and understanding notes and rhythm. I have also learned so much from watching how Sam tailors the entire lesson in following their individual learning speed, motivating and working around their different personalities! Sam's kind and collected nature along with his "piano whispering" methodologies has given to our family the lifelong gift of music and a great model of dedication and perseverance. We are so grateful to have found our perfect teacher!

We have been with Toby for almost 2 years now and my daughter loves going to her piano lesson. Toby is a very patient teacher which works great with kids. She the type of teacher you would want for your kids. She very passions for music. She also motivates my daughter to composer her own music. I highly recommend her.

When my daughter kept saying she wanted piano lessons, I had NO idea how to find a good teacher. Toby had great reviews on this site, so I took a chance, and the results have been far beyond my wildest expectations. What’s so fantastic about Toby is she doesn’t have a “one size fits all” approach to instruction. Instead, she developed a lesson plan that best fit my seven-year-old daughter’s interests and style of learning. Most remarkably, she encouraged my daughter to start composing. We now come home from a lesson and my daughter wants to work on writing her pieces right away. I had no idea that within a few months of starting weekly lessons, she could be reading and composing music at such a young age, and I can’t imagine that another teacher would have brought this out in her, but I’m so thankful that she has Toby as an instructor. From our very first interactions, Toby has been unerringly professional and quick to respond to any scheduling needs. Since she teaches at the college level and composes herself, she has so much knowledge to draw on and a real gift for imparting it to students. She’s also just a cool lady! I’d recommend her to any parent!
