Mrs. Gerrity is very professional, patient and kind. I absolutely love taking lessons from her. I would recommend Mrs. Gerrity to anyone looking for a piano teacher.
Aida studio's is one of the most professional violin studio's in the DC area. Tona, is one of the most inspiring people I have had the privilege to know and brings a tremendous amount of energy and technical skill to her lessons. As an adult learner, she has helped me set goals and provided structure to lessons to channel my creative energy. I would recommend her and Aida Studio's to anyone I know.
My 13 year old is taking saxophone classes with James. He is wonderful teacher, always on time, very positive and great at motivating students. We feel my daughter has make much improvement in just a few lessons. I highly recommend Cadenza Studios!
I hired Bill for electric guitar lessons. I actually shopped for an instructor who would fit my learning style best. I learn by doing things hands-on, not so much auditory learning. After trying 4 different instructors, I decided Bill was the best fit for me. Other instructors were good but did not have what I was looking for such as: not teaching according to my learning style, not understanding my goals, or making me feel like I learned nothing after the first lesson. I felt none of these will Bill. After my first lesson with him, I knew he would be a great fit for me. You can just tell he has experience by interacting with him. I left the lesson feeling satisfied with the information I learned and that I am capable of reaching my goals. He takes his time with each lesson, does not rush, and welcomes all questions. He is patient with newbies like me and adept at explaining things in a manner that I will understand. I never feel overwhelmed with the information he gives. I like that he gives positive encouragement when you do something correctly. He will also help you correct you if you have bad form/technique. Bill is very professional, he responds to inquiries quickly. He has the knowledge, experience, and background to help you reach your goals. He has a great personality and is willing to work with your schedule. I highly recommend Bill as an instructor!
The lesson with Debbie was great! She is very knowledgeable about different genres of music and has a good way of making you feel comfortable during the lesson. We can tell that she truly cares about her students and their goals and concerns. Will definitely be continuing the lessons with Debbie!
Sean has been a great teacher. He uses my interests to move me forward in what I should and want to know. The lessons are always interesting and what he always provides me with a good project for the week that makes me want to play and hold on to the new skills during the week. He is a great teacher.
I am a fan of piano lessons with Sean primarily because he works at your pace and works with the direction you want to move toward with your music. He is extremely flexible with scheduling lessons - I decided to meet on a bi-weekly basis and whenever a need has come up to postpone a lesson, he has always been very understanding and hasn't had any problem with rescheduling. I have only been taking lessons for a few months with Sean and this was my first time learning how to read and play piano music, but I can already hear the difference from what it was like when I first started to now. He does focus in on technique, yet also allows time for playing music that you want to play. If you're a student that enjoys a little more flexibility and less rigid lessons, this is the instructor for you. He is extremely reliable and great with responding back to you. His passion for piano music is clear and if you ever get a chance to hear him play, he's great to listen to on the piano!
If you're reading this, maybe you just decided to learn how to play the flute with absolute zero music experience, during a stage of life when the brain is not as plastic as you'd like. That's me now, and it's a lot of fun! But... before it's too late and bad playing habits become part of you, let Yana teach you. 45 min packed with information that would have been difficult to extract from books and even more difficult to put in practice. Challenging without being overwhelming, those 45 min are much more effective than an extended period of self-teaching. Highly recommended!
I have a 7 year old who is very interested in learning to play piano and compose. Josh has been great with teaching him the things he needs to know while staying attuned to my son's interests. He has modified songs my son wants to learn so that my son likes the music but is learning the skills he needs. He also plays games to keep the lesson interactive and lots of fun. He is also very reliable and professional.
I hired Jack and one of his associates for jazzy background music at my house on two separate occasions. He was easy to work with, arrived on time, and his fee was very reasonable given his high talent level. I have no hesitation in recommending Jack for his music service, whether to play at an event or for music lessons. And I would definitely use him again.
Hello - I'm happy to share our experience with Serini Piano Studio! Our son, age 10, has been a student of Serini Piano Studios for about a year and half. We also just recently started lessons for our 6 year old son. I couldn't recommend a better teacher. Her style is so warm and nourishing, yet she keeps the kids on task and really productive. She has a great feel for each kids' strengths and draws on their personality and adapts her lessons to the student. My oldest son has ADHD and can lose focus very easily, but she manages to keep him interested and thriving with his lessons and love of piano. We hope to continue with Serini Piano Studio for years to come!
My experience with Mr. Penney is unparalleled and unequal with respect to any other voice teacher I've ever had. I thought a longtime voice teacher was the best until she passed away and I had to find a new teacher. Then I found Mr. Penney and I've never looked back. Everyone noticed a difference in my voice once I started lessons with him. He hears things in your voice like no one else and he is able to translate that into advice and guidance that enables his students of all ages to reach their potential and their goals.
I have used Alvin Smithson's services for over five years as a piano tuner, teacher and performer. I am always impressed with his skills, artistry and professionalism. Alvin first came to tune my 100-years old Steinway after it had been neglected for a number of years. He first examined the instrument, diagnosed what needed to be done and then proceeded with his expert tuning. Immediately after he was done and started playing, I was amazed at how good the piano sounded. Alvin explained that with a piano that hasn't been tuned or played in so many years, it will take some time to achieve its best form and sound for which it was built. A short time after, my wife started taking piano lessons from Alvin and as she started gaining proficiency in playing under his guidance, the piano itself gained a rich pleasing sound. Alvin paid close attention and adjusted notes or did a full tuning whenever needed. He also took the time to clean the strings and do minor technical adjustments. When a string needed to be replaced, Alvin recommended a technician from a highly reputable company. Overall, we owe it to his expertise to have the wonderful old piano do what it was built for by the Steinway masters. I should also mention that I heard some great musicians at venues where Alvin is the regular piano tuner. People who visit our house and hear our piano, or play it themselves, always compliment its sound. But the best comes when Alvin himself sits at the keyboard, whether at our house, at a social function or performing in the theater, it's such a joy to hear him play some great classical pieces as well as his own wonderful compositions. He is truly a very talented, sensitive and highly knowledgeable artist. And such a pleasant person, too. My wife and I feel fortunate to have Alvin give us the best piano sound to enjoy live music in our home. I would recommend him to anyone as piano tuner, teacher and overall musician.
Laurie is very thougtful and kind. She has been taught piano to my 10-year-old daughter since this June. Laurie is always calm and helpful. We love our piano lesson. These days, my daughter plays piano pretty well and I’m happy I can enjoy beautiful piano!
I've been seeing Keith for about 6 months now, I've been drumming for about 4 years, I'm 35 now. I wanted to progress my drumming ability beyond what I learned in the past few years. I originally just wanted to meet for a few lessons to critique my technique, now I see him week to week. I felt Keith was the right guy because he's a seasoned and passionate drummer. He learned directly from the masters, ones who literally wrote the books on modern drumming and shaped modern sound. In a short amount of time he's identified many of my bad habits and helped me to correct them. My technique and grip has improved night and day, I can drum with much more finesse and speed after adopting and practicing his techniques. He urged me to learn to sight read, something I didn't really consider, and now I surprise when I practice myself because I always thought it was too much effort. After practicing his lessons, my independence between limbs, especially left hand on the snare - I didn't think I could do it this easily. I get a lot out of my time with Keith, and I go out of my way to see him weekly. I see kids as young as 5 absolutely jamming in his studio, and older folks too, older than me. His teaching demeanor and general vibe is professional and encouraging. He has a real passion for drums, absolutely key in finding the right teacher. So in short, if you want to step your drumming up, or if your kids need lessons, Keith is your guy.
My kids made great progress in just one year. They love her and she is very good with kids. She is very patient and is able to motivate them to do well. We highly recommend her to anyone wishing to learn Piano.
My daughter and I met Diego about 2 years ago. Both she and I wanted to learn how to play the guitar. Diego was always patient, kind, and found the best learning methods for the both of us. As time went on, I decided to stop taking lessons, do to time constraints, but my daughter continued to play until Diego changed locations. Diego was always the most polite and presentable staff member at the company. He was so great, that I asked him to play at my wedding! I highly recommended Diego Ratana to anyone looking for quality and integrity in the music industry.
While I’ve only started my violin lessons Kirsten has been a wonderful teacher whom I know will be able to help me learn to play the violin.
I've been taking a weekly hour lesson for a month and have greatly improved my playing and understanding of music working with Kevin. I am an adult who has been playing all my life but with little formal training. I have hit a wall with trying to self-learn using books and videos and needed someone to walk me through some of the advanced concepts. He is very patient and encouraging with my efforts to apply the lessons to my own music interests. Specifically he is helping me fill gaps in my knowledge by teaching me jazz concepts and the modes and how to apply them to jazz standards. I enjoy the lessons and look forward to them every week.
My experience with Nicole Lamm has been absolutely fantastic! She was my private vocal instructor for two and a half years before I went to college and I could not have been happier studying with anyone else. She prepared me with good technique and repertoire for my college career as a music education major at the Hartt School of Music, and helped me get to this point by advising me on college auditions and programs. In lessons, Nicole is very direct and clear, giving good instructions in a variety of ways to find what clicks for students. She is constructive in her criticism and encouraging in her praise. The winter and spring recitals that she puts together are perfect opportunities for students to learn the art of performance and take pride in their accomplishments. I would recommend Nicole Lamm to anyone!
Sammy is a wonderful music teacher. I've taken piano and voice lessons from him for the past few months and have seen much improvement. He's always very friendly and professional. I always feel comfortable around him as he creates a safe environment where mistakes are ok. He is very knowledgeable and is able to adjust to even the most rudimentary of lessons. He always gives positive feedback and constructive critiques. I fully recommend Sammy to anyone at any level looking to learn more about music!
