She is very nice and easy to talk to. She believes in what she teaches. She is very optimistic and helps me with my confidence. She worked with me at my home. My lessons are 30 minutes but a good thirty minutes. Her quality of work is good.

James is very knowledgable about MANY types of music, not just piano! The kids love learning from him. He relates to them so well at each child's level. He is able to teach my young daughter piano, and my older son the drums, which is great for our busy schedule. He is flexible and does his best to accomodate my son's erratic sports schedule. We are so pleased to have him working with our kids!

My husband and I knew when we walked into Teal Justice's piano office and shook her hand that she was the right choice for us. It wasn't just the gorgeous piano note curtains or flute lamp; it wasn't how professional her specific lesson plans appeared; and it wasn't how incredibly well she played the piano for us! It was a combination of everything. Our two daughters are ages 11 and 15, and they have been taking weekly piano lessons from Teal Justice for almost one year now. They never had any formal instruction, and we are completely amazed by how far they have come in only a year. Friends and family are shocked by how they can play the piano in only ONE YEAR! Teal Justice is very patient with beginners. She's also very experienced teaching children. She has a way of making them feel very comfortable next to her at the piano. Our daughters love practicing everyday, and we love hearing their music. We feel so fortunate to have her as our children's teacher. We highly recommend her to anyone interested in learning how to play piano (or flute!).

My daughter just took first piano lesson with Teal Justice. Ms. Teal is a great teacher. I was afraid if my daughter (almost 5 years old) is not too young to take piano lessons. Teal was patience with my daughter, and she was absolutely awesome on our first piano lesson.

I have just started piano lessons as an older adult. I am very impressed with Teal Justice's ability to adapt her instruction to my specific needs, and look forward to a productive learning experience.

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.

I've only been using Olga for a couple of weeks as a piano instructor for my 6 year old, but I think she's a great piano teacher.I'm actually considering piano lessons for myself now. She's firm enough, yet she seems to understand the nature of a child.

Our son began lessons with Ryan 5 years ago,after becoming bored and stagnant with his previous teacher of 2 years.With a child that was very talented and serious at pursuing a possible music career,we really wanted to make sure he had the best teacher for him that pushed him and challenged him but at the same time did it in a way that would encourage him, not discourage him.Because our son was easily bored,we also needed a teacher that could teach many different styles or genres,knew theory and could teach sight reading and was able to move at whatever pace was needed to challenge our son.Ryan worked on rock,blues jazz and classical guitar,sight reading ear training, song writing skills, improvisation only to name a few,but above all taught him to work hard and never give up.He helped him prepare for a very challenging audition to get into a very competitive music college, Belmont University. Ryan made sure that when the audition came up, our son was ever so confident when his audition time came up and was totally prepared in every possible way.Through the years,our son developed a strong sense of trust and friendship that he has been able to use as he is in college as a sophomore.While in college,our son will periodically still rely on Ryan for his professional views on different challenges. He also looks forward to breaks and summers to get together with Ryan and play,learn and get advice.It was never about Ryan making his fee,but about making sure our son was pushed during every lesson to the best of his abilities.Even if it meant staying over a few minutes or calling during the week to check and make sure he was able to work at the music homework he had given and was not frustrated.We highly recommend Ryan Strickland. He is a very professional dedicated musician that loves his job and will go over and beyond for all of his students. We feel as parents that Ryan pushed our son to help him fulfill his utmost dreams and passion and realize there are no limits.

Ryan is truly the Sherpa that guides you on the journey of inspired learning and appreciation for the guitar, no matter what your starting point. Yes, he most definitely has been to the summit himself as demonstrated by a mastery of many genres, styles, techniques, and a natural improvisation voice, not to mention his gigs and the musician company he keeps. Regardless, he knows the path and is personally and genuinely invested in helping you get where you want to go. I began lessons with him in the summer of 2013 to learn Jazz and musical theory for improvisation. Ryan has demystified the modes and helped me feel comfortable with the notes and patterns up and down the neck. He has a knack for laying out a logical step-wise approach for building a foundation that makes successive concepts more understandable. Lessons are very relaxed and often include an exchange of ideas that run from guitar care, to latest rock or jazz artists, to dumb questions you were always embarrassed to ask about music theory, to “how do you see the patterns on the neck”, to asking his suggestions on how to improve on an original song, to a variety of ways to practice or “think” about lesson material, to…..well you get it. Ryan has a depth of knowledge on so many aspects of playing music. He also has an uncanny ability to know “where” you are in the learning process and laser-like vision and ears as you play. Most often he understands your challenged moments intuitively and can offer a fix on the spot, or a practice suggestion, or a supplemental concept that puts things into perspective. Finally, I admire Ryan for his natural ability to balance the rigors of technique with inspired musical ideas. In short, you will discover that Ryan is the real deal, both personally and as your Sherpa instructor!

I took about a handful of piano lessons several years ago and recently decided I wanted to give it another try. All my colleagues possess artistic talents outside their careers, and I want to bring something to the table. Ray Akers absolutely helped me achieve that goal! He thoroughly coursed me through the basics, techniques, and exercises until I had a comfortable understanding. He is no stranger to constructive criticism, but he also points out my strengths and encourages improvement through independent practice. Before I knew it, I was reading sheet music while playing without sweating profusely! A very diverse and talented musician himself, he helped me uncover my own niche in music genres. I have an entirely new perception and level of appreciation now when enjoying a live performance or listening to an album. I'm so glad I got more than I expected from his instruction. Mr. Akers is punctual, professional, technical and always ready to share his knowledge and joy of musical expression. I would definitely recommend him to a friend!

Alex worked voice with me and piano with my young daughter. She has a genuine talent for sharing her passion and experience in music. I consider her my "coach" more than anything while she is definitely a "teacher" when it comes to my daughter. This demonstrates her adaptability in meeting the needs of each, individual student. She is also very accommodating with regards to schedule and goals. Like anything, you get what you give. Alex is patient and understanding when life isn't providing much time for personal practice. She balances that with passionate encouragement that makes you look forward to your next lesson and motivates you to be prepared.

After enrolling my 4 yr old daughter in group piano lessons, I quickly saw that she was interested in learning more. The decision to move to private lessons was an easy one after a trial lesson with Andria Rush. Andria is an EXCELLENT piano teacher. She was able to quickly bond with my sometimes shy 4 yr old , make her comfortable in a new environment , and constantly inspire her to learn and stay engaged/challenged. I HIGHLY RECOMMEND Riverside Voice and Piano. In addition to being a superb teacher, Andria has a warm and loving personality! There is nothing not to like about her services. I am extremely particular about any environment my child is immersed in and naturally the people she is around. Riverside Voice and Piano is a win win all around!

My granddaughter's voice/Singing/Piano lesson was exactly what she needed to boost her self esteem. The lessons were so rewarding. She was taught to use her voice properly through various breathing technics and breathing exercises, instead of just opening her mouth singing. She enjoyed both singing and piano throughly. She always looked forward to her lessons. I highly recommend anyone to experience what my granddaughter experienced. Ms. Andria, you are an anazing teacher. Thanks for all that you do!

After having piano lessons with 2 other teachers in the Atlanta area, I am extremely impressed with the piano lessons my son is receiving. I love the one on one attention Ms. Rush gives most of all. I can tell my son is getting better and his confidence level is rising as well. She even has a recital so that her students can show everyone how much progress is being made! Great teacher!

I am currently in college, but from Kindergarten through 12th grade, I took lessons with Ms. Vera. I will admit that my enthusiasm for piano waned a little when I hit the pre-teens, but Ms. Vera continued to encourage me and I truly think it was because of her that I managed to stick with piano-and I am glad I did. With Ms. Vera, once you learn the basics, you can pursue anything from a classical music education to simply learning your favorite songs that you would like to be able to play on the piano. No matter the song-Ms. Vera always looks through a plethora of resources to find me what I want. Most importantly, however, she is one of the sweetest, encouraging, and intelligent people I have ever met! You will not regret taking lessons with her!
