Cliff is a GREAT piano teacher! I'm just beginning to play at the ripe old age of #?. Even though it is somewhat painful to be a beginner I guess you have to start somewhere. But Cliff makes the experience fun and I do learn. The lessons are at my home and if he is running late he calls. If I need to reschedule he accommodates. He makes certain you are mastering the lessons and theory. It's been over 6 weeks since I've started and I'm reading music and starting to get it...not bad for an old guy. Really like Cliff, you will too.

David has been teaching our son for a while now and we can't imagine having a better teacher for him. Excellent teacher: skilled, patient, creative. Our son looks forward to his guitar lessons each week and he wouldn't have come this far without David.

It has been 20 years since I last took piano lessons and had to start almost from the beginning again. Very happy to have found Miles, whose knowledge and ability to impart it simply and concisely is excellent. I am gently challenged while still having fun, which is the perfect combination. Looking forward to my own progress with his guidance!

Chris is a really good musician and teacher. Some musicians are so good they forget what it's like to 'not know'. Chris can be with you, where you're at even though he is a highly skilled player. His patience is very encouraging. It's inspiring to take lessons with him and to remember we all NEED music!

Camille D.
Verified review

I studied advanced theory and composition with Alden two years ago and feel like I really grew musically. I'm a self-taught pianist with little knowledge of theory, and Alden was able to create a custom course for me that took into account the musical knowledge I already had put couldn't put into language. He created theory exercises for me and taught me advanced harmony, we also analyzed pieces by a variety of composers which allowed me to integrate new vocabulary into my own music. I thoroughly recommend him as a teacher both in composition and music theory!

I have experimented with music (guitar and harmonica) for a number of years without any direction or form and I'm so blessed to have found Cherie. She creates a relaxing environment where I can focus and understand basic music theory, she makes it comprehensive which others have not been able to do up to this point. And I have now expanded into a new area in my music lessons with voice training. Each lesson gives me more confidence and assurance in my playing and singing. I highly recommend Cherie. I am also impressed with her as a performer and feel honored to have as my musical guru.

I worked with Angel from his vocal studio in Palm Springs back in 2011. I missed our lessons and his energy. He always motivated me to do my best. If I could move to San Francsico and work with him again I would, I cannot recommend him enough! Jay.

I have been taking jazz piano lessons from Brent for the past 8 months and I've really enjoyed getting to work with him. He is very knowledgeable on the topic of jazz. Every week we practice improvising over jazz standards and he plays along with me on the piano or sometimes drums of there is a kit in the room. Brent if friendly and cares about his students. Would recommend to anyone wanting to take drum or piano lessons!

Great instructor. Thorough and knowledgable. I played two drum beats on my first drum lesson and I had never played drums before. I progressed rapidly and after 6 months can comfortably play with a band.

Alex is one in a million! He teaches music through a structural perspective rather than by the more traditional method of learn a note here, learn a note there (I haven't played the piano since I was a child, but I still cringe at the memory of the tedious and monotonous scales, finger exercises and simplified classical pieces I used to have to play). Alex's lessons are anything but tedious, and, even though I am essentially a beginner (having forgotten everything I learned as a child), I feel like I am well on my way to having a deeper understanding of what I am playing because I have a developing understanding how it works. I feel like I am learning the language of music through total immersion rather than by the textbook method of learning how to read the notes. I now listen to and hear music differently, and there is much I am learning on my own. I am especially pleased with the way Alex tailors my lessons around what I want to do rather than what he thinks I should do. As a result, I am learning to play jazz piano rather the stuff I was forced to play as a child (unless I want to, of course, in which case he would teach me that). And the best part (as if it could get better)? Alex is so enthusiastic about what he does that it is contagious and makes working with him a sheer joy. There is not much I look forward to and enjoy more than my lessons with Alex. Needless to say, I highly recommend Alex Balmaceda for anyone who is interested in learning more about music than simply reading and playing the notes.

I'm a female saxophonist, business owner, educator, performer who put her heart and soul into everything I do! I've been teaching and performing for over 20 years, and can handle most any situation spontaneously with a good outcome. I'm smart and level headed, and always work to create the "win-win" situation.
