My daughter started piano lessons with Stacey just a month ago but she is so excited every week to go. We have been very happy with how Stacey has progressed her - continually adding more difficult pieces to work on to see what she can do. This is our first experience w music lessons of any type and we are really happy with Stacey De & Co! Even my son, who never wants to try anything new, has started asking about taking drum lessons there. We couldn't be happier :)
Marlena is the best! Not only is she very knowledgeable and talented, but she is also very nice. She is great at assessing her student's skills and challenges them appropriately. I am a 27 year old former trombone player who wants to learn piano, and I would recommend her for any age and talent level.
I've been taking piano lessons by Ms. Ning for a year now. She is an extremely patient teacher and always guide me to a better understanding of music. Thanks to her, I become more fond of the piano music. She loves to discuss with me about what kid of music I want to play, and not just always follow the lesson book..
I have had many sessions with Stephanie, who is an absolute professional and outstanding musician and violin instructor. To put things in perspective, I am a 26 year old male with no prior experience in music theory or violin practice. After the first two sessions, I was able to play several notes and simple tunes on my own. I have since had several more sessions, and am very excited to continue with lessons. I find myself feeling excited to practice at home on my own, and making time to try Stephanie's techniques; It's just that fun. Stephanie is receptive, patient and incredibly skilled at finding ways to teach violin from an integrative, individual approach. She is worth every penny and I am incredibly lucky to have found her as my instructor.
My 6 year old has just started violin lessons with Joanna. She is absolutely wonderful with my young beginner. She is extremely knowledgeable and makes learning fun. My daughter can't wait to see her each week and wants to impress Joanna with all she has learned. Great music room environment for learning a new instrument. We are very excited at our daughters progess and we thank Joanna for her wonderful music program!
I contacted Jerry,inquiring about in-home guitar lessons for my daughter. He replied immediately with helpful suggestions of an instructor. When I realized my daughter wanted a female instructor Jerry went out of his way to find out more about my daughter and the kind of instructor who would be compatible with her. He then suggested one of two female instructors he felt would meet her needs. I was impressed with the time and effort he put into helping me find an instructor for her. This was extraordinary that he would take the time to help me when it did not directly benefit him and he did not even know me! I had originally contacted Jerry because of his highly regarded reputation for teaching and instruction. But now I also hold him in high regard for his kindness and dedication to helping others find their way into the world of music.
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!
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’ve always been fascinated by the violin. The moment I could muster up enough courage to take classes, I was extremely dedicated, however, not knowing anything about instruments and being an absolute beginner in playing one, it was always a challenge to find a teacher who could match my excitement and interest. When I met Kal, I felt that he had a genuine desire, not just to teach me how to play the violin, but to help me understand music as a whole; to incorporate all musical notes into my life through our lessons. Taking up an instrument can be such an intimidating task, but it is not at all impossible! With Kal as my teacher, in just a few months, I found myself reading music, playing to rhythms, listening to notes and recognizing them (and playing solely by listening to notes!) - basically, I found myself learning music, wholly, something that no other teacher had ever managed to take me through. Thanks to Kal, I can pick up my violin, tune myself, and just…play. His love for music is palpable and quite easily transferable; his dedication is outstanding, and his help has been truly invaluable.
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.
Ms. Celeste is my son's violin teacher. She is a wonderful and professional violin teacher! My son absolutely loves his violin lessons!
Irine is a patient, attentive and articulate teacher. While my playing aspirations are not exceptional, she has taken the time to explain what she believes will be valuable to what I want to achieve. I recommend her without hesitation.
Ms. Nissa is a wonderful teacher. Our daughter, Madelyn, has been taking lessons from Ms. Nissa for the past 4 months. Ms. Nissa is always professional, arrives on time, responds promptly to texts, and has been very flexible scheduling around our busy summer schedule. Ms. Nissa communicates with Madelyn with clarity and makes learning the violin fun! In fact, Madelyn was always sad when her 30 minute lesson was over, so we increased the lesson time to 45 minutes. I highly recommend Ms. Nissa!
Corie was my daughter’s first private violin teacher, and she was the perfect foundation for not just the love of the instrument but also the precise technique and skills needed to develop a true musician. Even years later, my daughter’s current teachers are impressed with the solid foundation she received under Corie’s tutelage. Corie made learning a challenging instrument fun at an age-appropriate level without giving up on any high standards. Whether it was learning to read music, developing ear and intonation, or perfecting a bow hold, Corie had multiple ways to teach, to address habits and difficulties, and to share experiences with the larger studio in group lessons. We still use her teaching reminders and phrases during practices sessions. With Corie’s violin lessons, you get more than just basic instruction; you get a surprisingly well-rounded introduction to true musicianship.
He is very knowledgeable, reasonable price and he comes to my home.

HGS Music is amazing, has the best staff and is really fun! I always feel very welcome. I think they've even convinced me to start playing Ukulele as well!
Matthew was an amazing teacher for my teenage daughter. He was always prepared for lessons, creative in his teaching approach, and developed just the right mix of professionalism and friendliness to teach her and keep lessons motivating, educational, and enjoyable. He also listened closely to her goals and accommodated his approach and lesson plans to enable her to achieve what she wanted to with her instrument.
I took violin lessons and my sister took piano lessons from Carol for two years. She was always very patient, explained things in a very clear way, and was very encouraging. We were very sorry when we no longer had time to continue our lessons. Anybody who gets to take lessons from Carol should consider them self lucky.
