Verified review

Stephan was a joy. The tuning went smoothly and I had my first piano lesson immediately following it. His breadth of knowledge is very impressive and his sensitivity to the gaps in mine made me feel very comfortable and helped with my own particular learning curve. I would highly recommend Stephan as a tuner and a teacher...

Dave is a wonderful, talented, patient teacher who has been giving my teenage daughter guitar lessons for several years. He encourages her with the music she wants to play and pushes her to expand her style as well. I highly recommend Dave as a superb guitar instructor!

We have had the pleasure of taking piano lessons from Wendy since 2009 and are still going strong. I have seen my two children flourish under her. She tailors each lesson and makes learning fun. Very positive, with just the right amount of pressure so that they progress but still enjoy what they are doing.

I've been taking Kung Fu lessons from Xander for the last 6 years. He takes the time to teach me the true Kung Fu. Unlike other Kung Fu teachers that just care about the money. He has taken me from not knowing how to fight at all and taught me how to fight very well. I have also taken music lesson from Xander. He is exceptionally knowledgeable on the subject. If you want a true teacher call Xander!

Music Lessons with Leah

Verified review

Spending every Thursday evening taking music lessons with Leah was one of the best parts of my childhood. I began taking piano lessons when I was 6 years old and continued to take them until I graduated high school. Growing up, I learned so much from Leah about music theory, playing techniques, and life in general. Leah is one of the friendliest people I've ever had the pleasure of meeting, and I highly recommend her to anyone looking to take music lessons. She's supportive, creative, and constantly smiling. If I could give her more than 5 stars, I would!

Andrew is one of the best musicians I know. I've been taking piano lessons w/ him for just over a year & he's made the experience truly fun & has definitely helped improved my piano playing. I've also hired him to perform and he is a true professional performer, putting thought & intention into every step of the process. I would highly recommend Andrew for both piano lessons & performances.

Dan Willard and his band are wonderful! Their music set the perfect tone for our semi-formal wedding: jazzy, classy, gorgeous. He and his group are incredibly versatile. I will use them again and again for future events of all kinds. ~Pamela Haskell

Keyvan Safinya has been giving me private piano lessons for a few weeks. In the short time that he has been teaching me I have improved marginally, much faster than I have learned with any other teacher. He is polite, professional, and very easy to get along with. I highly recommend him to anyone interested in Piano.

About

I taught myself guitar a few years ago. With the additional knowledge I gained from taking music theory in high school, I will be able to teach guitar while also discussing how to have a stronger grasp on music reading and understating.
