She's great, responsive, helpful, she doesn't teach whatever music she wants to she lets the children choose the genre of interest even if it's Disney songs.
Taking violin lessons (and now viola) with Paige. It's been a much better experience for me than my first time trying to learn violin. I appreciate that she's willing to adapt her lessons to my own goals and also select music that is actually pleasing to listen to even for an absolute beginner. As some other reviews mentioned, she's also very quick to reply to any messages.
I have really enjoyed taking lessons at Cordell Music so far. He has a good syllabus and the lessons build on one another in an understandable way.
James offers a fantastic multidimensional approach to teaching music. He's very talented but also nice and encouraging, so he gets along great with kids.
I am of 'advanced maternal age' and it was quite a leap to attempt a life long dream of playing the piano. I didn't know where to begin so I googled Piano Teachers in my area. It was my great fortune to sign up with Teal Justice. She approached each student individually (I eavesdrop while waiting for my lesson to begin), teaching the youngsters to read music, place hands properly and adds theory and history to her lesson. As an older student, I could care less about theory ~ I just want to play...under her guidance, I have advanced through two books in less than a year and have taken on a third for my own enjoyment.
Awesome teacher!! I have been taking lessons for five years with Eric and can honestly say that I would not be where I am as a guitarist today if I hadn't. As a teacher, Eric helps to explain not only "how" to play, but goes further to explain the "why" behind it all, teaching the "music theory" behind what is being played in a way that is both understandable and applicable to becoming a better musician. Starting out as just a beginner, I knew that there was always something new that I could learn from Eric, from learning how to play my favorites songs, to being taught new chord structures and scale concepts, I always had something cool, exciting, and challenging to go home and practice. I would highly recommend Eric as a teacher for anyone looking to become a better guitarist and musician.
Every review says as much about the person reviewing as it does the business reviewed. Olga is a conscientious and professional piano and voice teacher and I highly recommend her. A bad review is telegraphing that the person writing it has specific things that set them off. Sometimes these are fair and then the review reads as sensible. Typing a bad review in ALL CAPS is not sensible. The person comes across as obnoxious and at best, as fussy when focused on things most people consider unfair, like free lessons. Unless it is someone who shares the same issue, when someone like that writes a bad review the only person he or she is pushing away is someone LIKE THEM. So in that respect, they're doing the place a favor because they are aborting another bad review. Most of us read multiple reviews and can sort the rational voices from the angry ones. I am a parent of two boys and I have to say that $20 for quality one-on-one (private) 30 minute music lessons is too cheap. This is especially true if the teacher has several university degrees. Yes Olga gives us a discounted rate for my younger son but I do not expect her to teach for free. I am yet to see a teacher giving a $20 private lesson and free lesson for the 2nd child. To do it once perhaps, but that deal would be too good to be true to sustain long term. Not only would the teacher soon go out of business but it is unfair to the parents who are paying a higher but fair rate. In this day and age that is not a fair price for a qualified music teacher. However, $20 for a group lesson of 4 or 5 kids would make sense. My boys were able to read notes from their first piano lesson and are able to interpret a piece of music. Their lessons include scales, arpeggios, classic pieces, aural testing, sight reading and music theory. She is currently preparing my eldest son for the grade 1 Associated Board of the Royal Schools of Music (ABRSM) Exam. I can say she has gone above and beyond what previous piano teachers have delivered, even extending the lesson time by 5 or 10 minutes if needed. She was more focused on my boys understanding the concept than anything else. In fact and she spaced our lessons so they do not overlap giving me ample time to discuss any concerns. Our experience has been that we get more than what we pay for at each lesson. No one should have to work for free. The effort Olga makes in teaching our boys correct finger posture, rhythm and theory is incredible. She is great with kids and I could not ask for a better teacher.
Both of our sons (6 and 9) take piano lessons with Ms. Ruthanna. After my own childhood experience with piano and violin lessons, I have to say my sons are very lucky to have her as their teacher. She's so knowledgeable about teaching them. She does the Suzuki part to help with training them by ear. But, simultaneously, she teaches them note reading, so they are getting a very complete piano education. She's also incredibly patient with them. She wants to connect with them. She moves them right along, but in a positive and encouraging way at all times. She has a great sense of humor and meets them where they are at. I highly recommend Ms. Ruthanna as a piano teacher.
Voice lessons with Elideusa are wonderful! She is so patient and encouraging. I gained a solid understanding of vocal anatomy and technique.
My daughter really enjoys taking piano lessons with Mateo. She is really interested in learning the piano and I believe most of that has to do with Mateo's encouragement and engagement level during the lessons. Mateo seems to really care about his students and according to my daughter, he is "really funny".
Mr Emmanuel is an incredible teacher. He works on really strengthening the vocal cords which allow the voice to develop not only in strength but also in range as well. I was formally trained in voice so I know what he is doing is the best way of training a voice. He has been working with my daughter and I am hearing a difference in her voice. Her voice is becoming stronger and her range is wider. With his help preparing her, she just did her first audition and succeeded at it making it into a musical troupe. His love of music really shows in his teaching and his ability to correct in a positive way so the student feels encouraged is unique. My daughter comes away from her lessons feeling good, encouraged that she can do more and excited to practice, all due to his attitude and teaching ability. I would highly recommend him. He is the best!
I thought he explained things clearly. I liked what I walked away with in the first lesson. I look forward to more lessons. I think he's an amazing teacher.
Beth Anne has been teaching my daughter piano for the past 6 years. She has always acted in a professional manner. She has encouraged Elisabeth through the tough times and has helped her to press on, even when it was starting to be a real challenge. Elisabeth's love of piano is evident by the amount of time she spends practicing, and I am grateful for Beth Anne's influence in this area. I highly recommend Beth Anne if you are looking for music lessons. Not only is she a great teacher who is always looking for fun innovative ways to teach, but she is also one of the sweetest young women you will ever meet!
My son has been receiving piano lessons for @ 1 month. His teacher, Ben Phillips, is great. The lessons are fun and easy going, and he really looks forward to the evenings that he has lessons. I don't even have to bug him to practice. It has been great!
Our family has known Lyndsay for over 2 overs. Both of our children (ages 9 and 6) took piano lessons with Lyndsay beginning almost 3 years ago. The progress our children made FAR exceeded our expectations! They always seemed to be the best taught children in recitals as well. Lyndsay made learning piano fun and allowed our children to choose what music they wanted to learn. Lyndsay is friendly, kind, gentle, positive, encouraging, patient, and so, so sweet. She is able to connect with her students and customize their piano lessons according to their strengths. She turned our children into confident, self-motivated piano players. I highly recommend Lyndsay as a piano teacher and if she didn't move, we would have used her forever! We are envious of future families who can experience just how great she is!!! Carrie Gallacher
Chester is a teacher that perfectly suits my needs, and can be an excellent teacher for anyone. He is friendly enough to make piano lessons interesting and enjoyable, but he also teaches piano very well. He is a great teacher for someone that wants lessons that are knowledgeable, and enjoyable. -Stephen Colletta, age 12
Nora has been the best piano teacher for me. Being in my late sixties, I wanted to learn at my pace without pressure but at the same stretching me to see what I can do like playing in front of an audience. She has been patient and kind. I am learning and enjoying playing the piano.Nora gives good instruction and is very organized. I've enjoyed our lessons very much. She is knowledgeable about music, loves it and stays in touch with other teachers and groups. She has been the best teacher for me. Thanks Nora!
We have had the pleasure of knowing Ms. Myrna for almost 6 years as the piano teacher of our two daughters. Our oldest daughter (currently 9 years old) has been taking piano lessons with Ms. Myrna since she was 4 and our youngest daughter (currently 6) since she was 5. Ms. Myrna’s passion for music is only surpassed by her passion to teach children of all ages the piano. As a piano teacher, she molds her lessons to the level of each individual student making every piano lesson a pleasing learning experience in a warm musical environment that each student can happily embrace. Our experience with Ms. Myrna over the years has been one in which we have grown to appreciate music so much more through the fingers of our children playing the piano. Ms. Myrna takes the time to know each child and their personalities. She is insightful of a child’s feelings and emotions and uses that to channel her piano lessons. It’s not unusual to see children that have taken piano lessons with Ms. Myrna to have to say 'so long', only because the student is now headed to college to start a new chapter in his/her life. Above all, Ms. Myrna is a positive influence that helps keep our children well-grounded and focused on the path of success. We love Ms. Myrna and if you are reading this and considering Ms. Myrna to be your or your child's piano teacher....GO for it. You won't regret it.
Ms. Helen is an amazing piano teacher. My son started with her at the age of 5 and we've been with her for 5 years. She is patient, spends so much time with the children, balances the technical aspects of learning piano with enjoyable exercises, allows many opportunities to perform and even compete ... all with the most pleasant personality. She LOVES what she does. She expects a lot but goes at the pace of each child. My son has NEVER asked to skip a lesson. I highly, highly recommend Ms. Helen! Can't imagine anyone better!
Thank you for making my surprise come to life! This company went above and beyond for a great experience. It was very personal and real. The teacher was very patient and knowledable. Amazing!
