We chose Emo to work with my 11 year old daughter via Skype for voice lessons. She was really nervous to have her very first voice lesson over Skype, and with a stranger, but Emo quickly put her at ease. He’s patient, encouraging, positive, and also really uses the 30 minutes fully. He wasn’t the cheapest vocal coach to respond to my thumbtack but he really knows what he’s doing and maximizes the 30 minute lesson. My daughter is really happy with him as her teacher and so am I!

I am 57 years old (no Spring chicken) and came to Thomas for tenor sax lessons. My purpose is to perform and record sax solos for classic rock and blues. Thomas does a great job with understanding my goals and giving me a road map to achieve them. Very patient and intuitive.

I took private adult saxophone lessons from Richard for almost one year. Thanks to his guidance, I started with almost zero know how to playing pieces like Desafinado, Take Five, and Peter Gunn Theme with excellent tonality. He has his own unique style of teaching that really catapults you to success quickly within a short amount of time. Regrettably, I moved up to San Francisco so will be unable to continue lessons with him. Highly recommend him for private lessons

I wanted a teacher that could work with an older adult who not had piano lessons since childhood. After many years, I wanted to challenge myself by getting back into piano and I wanted to bring music back into my life. I was a bit nervous about making the commitment and about the time investment that would be required. I also didn’t know a good teacher so I asked around. Howard’s name came up. He was recommended as a patient and knowledgeable teacher that would do wonders with students. Howard’s approach is not the conventional one that I experienced as a child. He presents many types of approaches and uses lots of tools and techniques to build your skills and understanding of the structure of music. Now, I’m stretching myself to learn, remember and apply these skills and it feels really good! I actually enjoy practicing my piano. Now thats a testimony to Howard’s influence! If you are looking for a teacher that can accommodate your needs, encourage and inspire you, meet Howard and try him out. I’m confident that you will be very pleased with him as a professional and as a teacher.

I started taking saxophone lessons with Rick at the end of my last year of high school and I am studying with him during my summer break from college. I worked with him for 4 months before I left to college and as soon as I got there, I was able to start playing in a band and play songs and take solos with a drummer and guitar player. We are just playing for fun but I'm having a great time being able to really play. One of the best things about Rick's method of teaching is how fast you can learn to do what I thought were really difficult things on the saxophone. He has some great drills and warmups to get you to learn correct form and teach you how to play musically in very early stages. I wanted to learn how to improvise jazz so I started learning his system which simplified everything about improvising and I found was so easy and effective in learning how to improvise by ear. He also teaches you how to mix 8th, 16th and triplet rhythms and incorporate these rhythms into your solos. After a while, I began to be able to play things without thinking about what I was doing which was kind of amazing! I also know how to use bluesy concepts, articulations, dynamics and we're working on putting it all together and learn how to play more songs this summer. Learning from Rick's method was so easy. I was afraid at first that it would be too challenging to grasp and it would be an uphill battle, but I was so happy with how fast I was able to play at a good level. If you want a good saxophone teacher that you can really learn how to play real music in a very short amount of time, I highly recommend Rick.

Brian was very patience and extremely helpful with setting us up with a piano teacher. We just finished our first lesson with our kids and Naomi is great! She seems very knowledgeable with piano. My kids were able to warm up to her quickly and that's not easy process. We will definitely be continuing our lessons!

I had my very first Saxophone lessons today, and I could not be more pleased that Mr. Joel Sturm is the one teaching me. It has only been an hour, yet, there are already a lot of things about the sax that he taught me. I have no doubt on his knowledge and how he shares this knowledge with me as a student. He is outstanding. Aside from the lessons, I also felt home and it was so comfortable, with him and his wife being so warm to students. I am looking forward to learning more from him, and I claim that this will mark my journey towards being a good sax player in the future. All thanks to him. I’d definitely come back every week, and would recommend him to anyone interested to learn making music. 😊

My son started taking piano lessons from Kelly a year and half ago. Since then, he has blossomed. We'd tried a franchise center before discovering Kelly but quickly discovered that a minimum of piano playing is actually done there. At 7, he needed the basics first and she made it so easy and fun for him. Now 9, he took and passed the ABRSMs at Cal State LA last fall, becoming one of the youngest to do so out of 600 students. Recitals are offered twice a year, allowing kids to present their work to an audience. The kids enjoy playing, thanks to her patience, passion and persistence. We highly recommend Kelly Pedroza and Elite Musique.

Anna is a very passionate and talented teacher and musician. After attending a recent recital, I was very impressed with how well her students play and with how she interacts and teaches them. My daughter is too young for lessons currently, but I am looking forward to the day when Anna can become her teacher.

    I had my first lesson with Tim and it was more than I could have imagined. He has a calm way about his teaching that makes me anticipate our next session. I am so glad that Tim offered to be my instructor. - Bishop Christopher F. Bays, Sr.

      Sam is the sax instructor for my son Milo. Most importantly, Milo loves Sam and looks forward to the lessons... he is inspired to practice and look good at the lesson which is very helpful. Sam is kind and friendly and funny and has greatly improved my son's playing. I feel fortunate to have Sam teaching my son, and I recommend him highly.

      Oliver took me on as a student returning to the clarinet after 60 years! Building on a positive experience of having played in my high school band in the '50's, Oliver is guiding me back into the enjoyment of learning music. He is patient yet challenging, promoting excellence of tone and technique. His ability to teach with a light touch and a sense of humor makes being his student a genuine pleasure. Then, too, for a senior person, the brain fitness benefit is a real bonus.
