great professional service very responsive and love kids enjoying Spanish lessons
Clifford is a highly-accomplished musician and excellent teacher. I was classically-trained growing up but had always wanted to learn jazz piano. When I started lessons with Clifford, I was definitely rusty in the fundamentals, and he has been doing an excellent job at shoring up my weak points while slowly building up my skills in the jazz techniques. He is very patient and really wants his students to succeed; one example of this is that even though our lessons are supposed to be an hour, we often go over time chatting about all sorts of different aspects of jazz. He plays gigs regularly so the schedule can shift over time, but he is very accommodating and responsive when this might occur.
My 10 years old daughter with no prior singing lesson got a lot of helpful tips and guidance from Mindy. She was very encouraging.
My boys are enjoying their lessons and having fun. Andi is patient, kind and inspires my boys to do their best.
Megan is a patient and friendly piano instructor. Our 4 year old enjoys her time learning the pieces taught by Megan. We recommend her to anyone interested in at home lessons.
I am an adult beginner and have enjoyed my piano lessons with Stella. She is friendly, patient and very knowledgeable. She offers a good balance between technique exercises and learning to play music. And, she doesn't let you give up!
I love going to voice/piano lessons every week! Sarah has taught me so much in the couple months i've been with her - i have a much stronger and overall better voice than before i started lessons. It's also very fun just in general to go every week:)
Been singing for many years and surprised to still be learning so much. Juan is quite professional and disciplined. He identifies where you need work and starts with fundamentals. You can't fake it with him; he'll know! I recommend going into it with a clear goal and he'll design a program for you.
We weren't sure what to expect from a self-defense class, but Max offered me a good breakdown over email prior to the coming in to teach, and once here, he was good about demonstrating techniques and allowing the class to do as much or as little as they were comfortable with. I found Max's lessons to be practical for the common person, and his teaching style is to the point, but relaxed. He'll answer questions as you go along and help you to chain together the different things he teaches you. We've asked him back for every other week, so he's definitely doing the right things! We have a lot of fun, but also learn a lot from Max.
Both my children have taken piano lessons with Laura-Lacy Thompson. She provides well-rounded musical education including study of musical theory, technical skill-building, and pursuit of each child's personal passion for music. She's dependable, communicative, and friendly. My children have benefited greatly from lessons with Laura.
I've really enjoyed my first few lessons with a Toby! She's extremely knowledgeable, patient, and thoughtful in her approach. Looking forward to future lessons.
I've been playing guitar by myself for a couple of years through tabs/video lessons etc. My progress has exponentially increased since Sedat has started teaching. He is one of the most patient and polite teachers I've seen.He was very quick to gauge my understanding of music and the instrument and planned my lessons accordingly. I have been trying to understand music theory for a while. Sedat's lessons are an amalgam of theory, technique (finger exercises) and songs. I'm finally able to understand what I'm playing rather than just learning through tabs. He has a wide knowledge of different techniques used in many genres (Rock, Jazz, Blues, Fusion etc) and can help his student improve their craft in the style they love. Needless to say, he's a brilliant guitarist himself. I once attended one of his concerts and it was amazing. I've struggled with self-learning through various means but learning with Sedat has been a huge positive enforcement in my guitar playing. His versatility with his music and patience with the students makes him an amazing teacher and I'd recommend students of all levels and age to learn from him.
Liz is the real deal. She was able to pick up on the needs of my daughter and focus on that. She didn't waste time on things already learned or trying to reteach or practice things already known. She makes the lesson count without making it onerous. She is a true professional willing to teach the serious student. She is also kind, motivating (without being condescending) and understanding. I appreciate her flexibility and adaptability in working with my teen daughter. Because of her my daughter is enjoying singing!
Denis is a great guitar teacher. We started our 16-year old with him, and he has been a patient and thorough teacher thus far. We have done only 3 lessons so far, but am happy with his style of teaching.
I have been taking Spanish lessons from Ms. Price. She is incredibly personable, knowledgeable and helpful. My Spanish skills have soared since I've started with her. Very friendly, she is an excellent teacher. She knows where weak points are and knows how to explain advanced subjects in a way which is very understandable. I am definitely going to continue lessons and I highly recommend Ms. Price to anyone who is seeking to improve their language skills.
I enjoyed how Alison interacted with my children in teaching the guitar and piano.not only was she professional, knowledgable, but she made the lessons enjoyable. My children look forward to their lessons & I would reccomend her wholeheartedly
Ben's a great, knowledgable and fun vocal coach that really caters to your needs, and then broadens your potential to things you never thought you could do. As a 21 year old male trying to be a pop/rock singer, in just a few short lessons he helped my range, breath support and overall tone improve drastically. Highly recommended if you're looking for good results quickly in improving your singing voice.
Met with Rafa for our first lesson the other day. Awesome experience, Rafa was engaging, friendly and well prepared. Rafa sent me homework prior to our first meeting so we could get started right away. Will continue my lessons!!
I played piano for a few years before I started playing with Eteri. Eteri is the best piano teacher I've ever had and really helped me get serious about my piano playing and actually start practicing. She makes the lessons enjoyable for every student, so the students learn to appreciate music. The recitals twice a year are really fun. You get to hear what kids from different age groups are playing and hang out with them. Everyone is pretty close and its a wonderful enviroment. If you need a piano teacher, I extremely suggest Eteri.
Excellent lessons in music theory and practice!
I have been seeing Kenny for adult guitar lessons. He really is an amazing teacher. Having no musical experience in the past I was pretty apprehensive about taking lessons, but after meeting with Kenny and listening to his instruction I felt much more confident and look forward to working with him in the future.
