Do far so good, she has had two lessons with my headstrong 6 year old son and she has been patient with him and he has been really excited to show off what he has learned. She gives homework to reinforce what he is learning during his lessons .

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!

My first lesson with Don was packed with information but Don reassured that it's normal not to remember everything. He does include theory behind lessons and ensured that it would all come together down the road. Don was friendly, knowledgeable, and good at what he teaches. He is a well rounded instructor in different types of music/instruments.

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!

I have been playing guitar for my own enjoyment for 40 years. As a boy I briefly had casual lessons in strumming along to popular music. The lessons weren't very serious or effective, and so I'm pretty much self taught. Over the years I've become an accomplished dilettante able to impress the nonmusicians, but always aware that I didn't really play very well. In all that time I've often wondered how the really talented musicians learned their craft, never more so than while watching my son's slow progress with the laughably unchallenging lessons at Bach to Rock. This Christmas I told my wife I would really enjoy having some serious instruction, and she went hunting for the best the region had to offer. She found Alexander Rani at NOVA. I progressed more in my first 4 lessons with Alexander than I have in the last decade. I see now how accomplished musicianship is not some unattainable feat of the few truly blessed. Proper technique and a little diligence can see even an old duffer like me making beautiful music. My wife, who thought I was ridiculous for wanting to take lessons when I already knew how to play, keeps telling me how shocked she is at the difference. I feel like an idiot for thinking it was beyond me and not seeking out a real teacher before. And that has been the difference: a real teacher. Alex is fabulous. I have to say I find it intimidating to be sitting down with such a tremendously accomplished musician. He is so at ease doing things I know are extremely difficult and he can throw in endless variations of his own creation seemingly without having to think at all. He is a concert quality guitarist of the very first order. However he is wonderful at making you feel at ease. He is kind and patient and never condescending or harsh. (And I promise, my playing should try his patience if anyone's will!). I won't say he makes it easy. Quite the opposite. Alex will challenge you at your level of ability. He will take you out of your comfort zone and on to the next skill or technique and tell you you are ready to do more. For me the first run through anything new seems completely alien, and many of these things I wouldn't have given more than a first try. But Alex patiently takes you through one little bite at a time and quickly it becomes more natural. In a short time you are doing things that you didn't think you had in you. And that has been the biggest surprise. I haven't gotten very far yet, but now I understand how it is done, how accomplished musicianship is attainable one skill at a time. Thanks, Alex.

My two teenage daughters and I trained with David, our instructor, with Falcon Security. It was the best decision we have ever made! Not only did we learn skills to protect ourselves, but we now feel empowered! I know my daughters will be more careful and ready at a momemt's notice to defend and protect themselves, heaven forbid should they need to! As for myself, I have a true confidence that should I find myself in an unsafe situation, I can handle it without a shadow of a doubt. David was spot on with his lessons. He conveyed what can happen to any of us but did so in a professional way. I know he really cared about our well-being and he took our lessons to heart every session. He pointed out scenarios that the girls have never yet contemplated and then gave them the skills to handle what ever can happen. At 17 and 18 it was time for them to learn self defense. David was awesome and I couldn't be happier with the results!

Tona is absolutely awesome - she made me feel very comfortable with our trial lesson and so I bought the 6 pack of lessons. I'm intimately familiar with music as I used to play and sing way back when also going to school for vocal performance. But, I hadn't done it in a long while and wanted to get back into music. She's been extremely patient with my rustiness (even when I'm not with myself) and I really appreciate that. As an adult getting back into music with the violin I appreciate her honesty, patience, professionalism, response time and her being on time for our lessons.

Yulia is a thoughtful, methodical, and effective instructor. She is very supportive and has a way to stimulate her students. With me, she has produced some impressive results in a rather short timeframe. Languages are not learned over night, of course, however, a good foundation and early application is something I have achieved faster than I expected. Thank you, Yulia!

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’ve been taking self defense lessons with Anthony for about 3 months now and it has been great. He breaks down movements and explains things in a way that’s easy for a beginner to understand, and is great at tailoring workouts to my needs. I work in an emergency room where patients often become violent, and Anthony takes situations I’ve seen or my co-workers have seen and shows me how to defend myself. You can tell from your first session with Anthony that he not only is an expert in what he does, but that he loves what he does. He makes working out fun. I leave our sessions completely exhausted, as he works you hard for the full time. He’s also great at working around my crazy schedule. I enjoy our sessions so much I’ve been passing out his business cards to all my work friends!

Singing in church choirs has been a wonderful outlet and enabled me to find a community as I moved every few years to different parts of the globe. Finally putting down roots, I wanted to find a voice coach who would help me improve breath control, strengthen the range of my voice, and improve the overall quality of my singing. I am blessed to have found Keely Bosworth Borland, a gifted soprano and performer. Keely has been the perfect coach for me. She has a unique ability to both nurture and push me. Keely has identified and helped me work on my breath control. She has used a wide variety of music to foster my confidence while stretching my vocal range. Her lessons include a selection of vocal warm-ups and breathing exercises each week that compliment the music we sing. I have found that recording her lessons and rehearsing them between lessons to be of great help. I highly recommend Keely to anyone looking for a voice coach from the novice to the serious performer.

I love my first 3 lessons and know that I will finally learn to speak Spanish both fluently and intellectually. Gina's lessons are imbued with professionalism and precision while still capturing the essence of FUN. She's clearly what I was looking for as a teacher of not only the Spanish language but of its content, context and culture. Thanks to her, I am on my way to being bilingual and it feels great!

I came to Brian in January of 2015. I have struggled with my weight, self image, and self confidence my entire life. At 42 years old, 5 foot 7, and 276 pounds I was desperately out of shape, weak, and in need of guidance. Every attempt I'd made in my adult life to lose weight and keep it off was miserable failure. I'd gained and lost hundreds of pounds. If you can think of a fitness gimmick, I've tried it. NutriSystem, Weight Watchers, Jenny Craig, Beach Body, Herbalife, all of them! None worked long term. Today, 5 months after starting with Brian I have lost 30 pounds, gotten incredibly stronger in all measurable ways, lost 6 inches off my waist, and I feel amazing! Brian teaches you that the key to long term success is to build strength to support your bodies efforts to be lean and fit. He doesn't promise any quick fixes or miracle cures. It is dedication and hard work that get you to your goals. Every session is packed from start to finish with exercises that keep me moving, burning fat, and gaining strength! No excuses, no escapes...you come to him to get results and he will give those to you as long as you put in the work! For the first time in my life I'm excited about my body, the way it is transforming and the changes I can see in myself every single week. Do yourself a favor...if you need help to get to the fitness level you want, then call Brian...talk to him, meet him for a workout and see what can happen with experienced guidance at your side! The results will amaze you...they do me! --Donno Cole Fairfax, VA

I have been taking voice lessons from Tracy for several months now and I can't say enough about her. I love her! She is incredibly knowledgable and always greets me with a smile. I was so nervous and scared when I started and Tracy helped me with my fear of singing. She made me feel comfortable and put me at ease right away. She is very patient with me and is always so encouraging. I feel my confidence growing and I am finding my voice with her. In fact, I now walk around my house belting out songs using this voice that I didn't even know I had. Thank you Tracy for all you have done for me I am so grateful that I found you!

Vicky has been a great fit for our son. He is almost 13, but with the deep voice of a 21-year old. Being autistic, proper singing is not only fun, but also an integral part of breathing and speech for him. Vicky has been knowledgeable and very patient!

I am having an incredible experience working with Debbie Kirkland. What a pro! I have only had a couple lessons, but she has been so patient helping a novice such as myself. Debbie is big on technique, and her comprehensive approach (even getting me down on a mat to show me proper breathing and placement) shows her commitment to her students. I feel like the foundation I am building will serve me well as I progress in my lessons. Even though it’s challenging and frustrating at times, I’m excited every time I go for my lesson. Debbie’s enthusiasm and passion for her craft make it enjoyable, and I’m grateful I found her and look forward to continuing my training under her direction.

Carey’s talent as a teacher does wonders for bridging the gap between music theory and music performance. I went into lessons with only a very basic knowledge of music theory that I hardly was able to apply to guitar, but his lessons taught me how to play in a way where I can either explore the musical depth of the tune or simply jam, comfortable that what I’m playing will always sound good. It’s broadened my abilities as a musician without taking away the simple fun of playing guitar, something that is invaluable in any teacher.
