"Bulent is a fun loving teacher who loves music, and is wonderful with children of all ages. He has taught our daughter for both voice and piano lessons and our son for drum lessons. His technical knowledge is wonderful, he is exact with the students in regard to technique, breathing and stretching exercises, and body alignment. His lessons are fun and he is full of enthusiasm which rubs off on the students. He helps make younger students feel at ease, and has a gentle manner, which makes lessons very enjoyable. We would recommend Bulent to anyone, regardless of musical ability." Allyson P. and Jason E.

I am an unschooled drummer who has been playing for over 50 years. I recently decided I wanted to expand my playing by taking some drum lessons and began working with James. I doubt there are many drum teachers who I could successfully work with but James brings some very special qualities to his teaching that make him perfect for me. In addition to being an extremely skilled drummer, he really seems to understand that each student is unique and that his teaching needs to be suited to that student. He is patient, he is very supportive, and he seems to have an intuitive sense of how to approach people as he works with them. In addition to all that he's a really nice guy.

David has been teaching me guitar for a little over a month now. I have already seen great advances in my technique, rhythm, and understanding of music. I have been playing guitar for 9 years off and on, and I have never had professional lessons. I can say that after a month with David, I am playing better than I ever have and believe that my guitar playing skills will continue to progress rapidly with David's help. His teaching technique is very casual and fun, almost conversational, and his insights are spot on. He is exactly what I hoped for in an instructor when I started looking at guitar lessons and I would highly recommend him for anyone who loves guitar, regardless of their skill level. He is a 'must hire' professional!

My son has taken drum lessons from Brian for several years now and really enjoys their weekly sessions. In addition to excellent technical teaching, my son enjoys Brian's sense of humor and that they work on a variety of music types. Brian is always accommodating about scheduling conflicts for which I have been grateful. All-in-all, Brian is a wonderful music instructor and a pleasure to work with.

I've tried several drum instructors for my son, and Jesse is the best by far. He brought back his motivation. He figures out what the student likes and moves from there. He's easy with programming the dates and provides a really good value for the student. I'll continue to have my child take courses from him and highly recommend him to potential students.

Mr. Dennis has both the ability and patience to teach students of all grades and competency level. He makes learning fun and my daughter looks forward to her Sax lessons every week. Mr. Dennis pro-actively puts music ensembles together to showcase his students’ work and boast their confidence. He also suggests outside programs for the kids that both challenges their comfort zones and expands their musical horizons.

I began taking voice lessons from Peter Hostage in May and have been highly satisfied with my decision to do so. If you are considering taking music lessons with Mr. Hostage, know that you can expect a high level of professionalism, a relaxed atmosphere, and most importantly, quality musical instruction. As someone who began singing at an early age, I have had the opportunity to sing both individually and as part of numerous groups. In just three weeks Peter has introduced me to technique that I had not been exposed in my 10+ years singing. I am confident that continued lessons with Mr. Hostage will enhance my vocal ability. The lessons are definitely worth the investment!

I have had an excellent experience taking drum lessons from juan. He is extremely good at assessing the skill level of the student and presenting challenging material that will allow the student to grow quickly. Juan has taught me not only very applicable grooves but also concepts that have both transformed my practice time and opened up my mind to the creative possiblities on my instrument. He has shown me several ways to maximize my practice time and ways in which I can most effectively integrate what I am learning into my natural playing. Juan is an extremely knowledgeable musician and I myself have grown as a musician after just over a month of taking lessons from him.

      My 11 year old has been learning from Matt for more than a year now. Matt is a fantastic teacher. He has instilled a love of music and drums in my son. Matt is not only a great drummer, but also knows how to relate to young folk and keep the sessions interesting with humor. My kid loves his jokes and thinks Matt is way cool! Matt can teach both at his studio or at your home. My kid likes to go to his studio, since he has drumsets, guitars and a piano there. Matt will often teach a lesson and then intersperse it with jamming on the guitar and singing, while my kid drums. It is very motivating to see how all the pieces work together. Matt is also flexible, easygoing and friendly. It is difficult to find a teacher who is excellent at what he does AND can keep kids motivated with humor AND is an overall great guy! Matt also teaches adults. I strongly recommend Matt as a teacher for you or your kid!
