Toby is an amazing piano teacher and I am so glad to have found her for my piano lessons. I am working adult with no prior piano experience. Toby started from basics and focused on both piano playing technique and theory behind it which made it so much easier to understand the intricacies. She lets me learn at my own pace while at the same time pushes me to become better and she's always encouraging. When she introduces new techniques , she finds popular songs that uses those techniques and teaches them. This makes it fun to learn and I picked up quite a few songs in the past few months that I attended her classes. I am happy with my progress and would gladly recommend her piano lessons.

I started learning from Tim for about 2 months. Tim is great to work with. I came from classical piano to jazz and I got a lot improvement since taking lessons from him!

It’s been one year since my son, who’s eight years old, has started piano lessons with Toby without any prior tutelage. He has progressed immensely in that time span that it’s hard to believe it’s only been one year! Toby is patient, attentive, and gives constructive feedback in a way that he’s able to grasp and utilize. Along with piano lessons she also arranges recitals with all of her students that give students something to work toward, and look forward too. Since the start of the shelter-in-place during this pandemic, she has transitioned to zoom lessons that he’s still able to learn and advance his skill level. I definitely recommend!!

Tobi is an amazing piano teacher and I couldn’t recommend someone more. I’m an adult student and have been taking lessons with Tobi for the past 7 months. At a high level, she is a great instructor who has really helped me learn. I really enjoy working with her and am very proud of my progress. I’ve played at a recital which was a great learning experience and have gotten great feedback from friends who have heard me play. This is testament to the guidance and teaching I’ve received from Tobi. On a more granular level, she is very detail oriented (laser focused on learning all the intricacies of a piece such as hand placement, timing, dynamics, pedaling etc.), very patient (understanding when I have bad weeks and makes a big effort to be encouraging), and makes a big effort to go through your learning journey with you. I’ve learned so much over just 6 months and have gone from a complete beginner to being confident to play simple pieces in LAX airport as people walk by. I’m more interested in pop pieces, and Tobi has been great about giving me the right balance between theory, typical progression pieces that help me learn, and pieces that spark my interest as something I’d really like to be able to play. For example, currently I’m learning a Chopin piece while also learning All of Me by John Legend. She’s very flexible in terms of tailoring lessons around your goals and is very attentive to what interests you as a student. Each week you leave with a homework sheet containing specific things to work on for the week. This includes scales, warm up exercises, various pieces you’re currently working on and detailed notes to go along with them. It takes approx. 20-30 minutes to run through this homework once each day. Tobi is really good at identifying your strengths and makes sure to use that asset to your advantage as you learn. This has made lessons thoroughly enjoyable and has kept me motivated. She also gets the right balance between pieces that suit your level and ones that challenge you to be better. You won’t go wrong by choosing to work with Tobi!
