Brit was amazing! Hired her for a cello/violin duo for my wedding. She kept in contact throughout the process, was able to find all the songs I requested (some were pretty obscure), and she and Helen played beautifully. We received a ton of compliments on the music, and it was awesome to hear my favorites as a string duo.
I really enjoy learning from Tracy! She is a very warm and approachable person. From my lesson, I could tell that she really knew what she what teaching me! That made me feel comfortable about learning more from her. She has so much knowledge to bestow on everyone about Music Theory, songs, etc. I believe that learning the piano or any instrument could pose as a job opportunity. I feel that Tracy prepares me to play locally and/or professionally!
My son has been taking piano lessons with the Music Connection for more than a year. The teaching staff is excellent and my son is improving his piano skills weekly!
Got my 15 year old daughter guitar lessons with David & he was AMAZING!!
Cassie taught my 2 kids piano for a couple of years and she was great! Very organized, supportive and punctual. She was patient when the kids were being difficult. We've now moved away to a different region of the country, but we had a couple of great years with Cassie! Highly recommended!
I was looking for a short term cello teacher for my 11 year old daughter while her regular teacher was on summer break. City Strings and Piano responded right away and sent a teacher to my home working with the days/hours I preferred. Victor, the cello teacher, was fantastic! He only had four lessons to work with my daughter on her seating audition pieces. She arrived at the audition feeling confident and well prepared! Victor was punctual and extremely helpful in describing the mood of the pieces..explaining dynamics and bowing techniques to improve her playing. He was very patient and friendly...using a bit of humor to engage my daughter and make her feel at ease. I would highly recommend Victor and City Strings & Piano! Loved the convenience of a professional, highly qualified teacher coming to my home!
We love Bellas Artes! The teachers excel at combining technique and joyful discovery within an atmosphere of encouragement. My kids LOVE their lessons with Destiney and Constance and, more importantly, are learning to love to play music while being challenged and encouraged. Having such talented musicians who are so gifted in working with kids is such a blessing! Practically speaking, it is great because with 5 kids it is huge to have both piano and violin lessons in the same place, and they are always gracious in working with my schedule. We highly recommend Bellas Artes!
I had decided to start taking cello lessons later in life at the age of 50, and Clair offered a very supportive and engaging teaching manner to kick start my endeavor. Her abilities as cellist and teacher offer any student wonderful instruction and inspiration.
Francisco is a great instructor and plays cello very beautifully. I have had lessons with other cello instructors and it's a lot more laid back and easy-going with Francisco.. which tends to keep you comfortable and actually engages you to progress forward faster. The pace is good and challenging, and his insight into both technique and repertoire history adds a lot to the whole lesson experience. I look forward to continuing my cello lessons with Francisco for the foreseeable future. :)
My son learned to play guitar there at the age of 5. He is now 12 and has continued his lessons and has formed a Rock Band where they all practice and perform through the music school. They have all learned a tremendous amount and it continues to be a wonderful experience for them.
Alex was a pleasure to work with. I found him to be communicative, mature, and highly expressive and technically outstanding as a musician. He played cello in a dance piece I created for a professional dancer from abroad. We both felt that was excellent in the process and performance. I recommend him to anyone, anywhere, anytime.

Jake challenged me to break through my comfort zone both musically and academically. I identify my years under Jake's guidance as those in which I experienced the greatest growth and success in my musical endeavors. His appreciation and enthusiasm for music and deep passion for the cello are very effective and are evident in the way he teaches. He has an incredible ability to weave musical principles into one's everyday life. I feel that Jake really cared for me--as a musician, yes, but more importantly, as a person. I am so thankful that I had the privilege to study the cello with Jake. He has my highest recommendation.
I provide lessons on any stringed instrument, including cello, guitar, bass, violin and piano. I do Eastern, European and ethnic music also.
I have helped students prepare for local competitions, enter district and state festivals, and pursue various opportunities to collaborate in both chamber music and settings outside the classical genre. My teaching style is friendly but firm on returning to basic fundamentals (scales and arpeggios) for learning musicality and technique, emphasizing physicality for isolating and releasing tension in the student's playing (Alexander Technique) and encouraging the student to investigate the score-and what lies beyond- as both listener and performer to further develop their own ideas, or their own 'voice' as an artist.
