Guitar Lessons : I had a good experience with Andy. I had to stop lessons for a long out of town trip. Plan on starting back in the spring 2014. I had a mixed bag of guitar skills and he was able to focus on what I needed to learn and show me how to do it. Thanks
I have taken guitar lessons from Alan Donati for a number of years in order to better understand music. Being a weathered rock/blues drummer myself, I can attest that Alan is a very accomplished musician and seasoned music teacher who learned his craft via years of playing in rock, blues and jazz bands as well as attending Berklee as a solid foundation. Alan can teach a number of instruments well such as guitar, bass and piano alongside incorporating music theory with the practical applications. He is very adapt with technology as well as “old school”. I have seen Alan teach many students with great patience with tailored attention to the particular student’s interest. Some veteran musicians can only play well but not teach. However, Alan can obviously do both. And so I am giving Alan an outstanding review and rating.
I have a 7 years old girl who plays the violin and she has been taking violin lesson with Angel for 2 years. Absolutely, she LOVES the lesson with him. His professionalism and experience with kids make the lesson so valuable. I can see when my daughter plays the violin, her sound, tone quality and even posture improved so much. I strongly recommend him if you are thinking of the lesson for your children. As far as I know, he is the BEST teacher and musician!! plus, he is always on time for the lesson.
As an adult student, I have been taking mandolin and guitar lessons from Steve for about two years. I would recommend him unquestionably to any prospective student looking to take music lessons. Steve is a down-to-earth instructor who is not only eager to help his students learn but demonstrably excellent at playing and teaching the instruments he teaches. Steve has introduced me to a variety of music from a theory viewpoint, but is eager to help his students define their own path, reflective of their particular musical tastes. Ive played an array of bluegrass, jazz, blues, and classical music with Steve. Not only has my playing dramatically improved, but my appreciation for the music has improved exponentially. Ive learned how to diatoni cally examine songs, understand rhythm signatures, identify different scales, solo, and perhaps most importantly, how to practice properly. Whether youre just looking to play your favorite song, or become a lifelong student of your instrument, Steve is definitely the guy to help you along the path of musical discovery.
At over 60, taking violin lessons for the first time could have been painful. Laura makes sure that it isn't. I love learning from her. She is a gifted teacher and talented musician who knows how to adjust lessons to the individual student and encourage without lecturing. I highly recommmend her for either performance or instruction...for any aged student!
I only spoke with Josh on the phone but he was very polite and helpful. We would have loved to have him as a teacher but he was located too far from the student.
I took piano lessons with Mary. She is a wonderful and professional teacher. I would highly recommend New England Music Studio - Great learning experience and a lot of fun
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.
Tony Morales is an excellent teacher. He taught out of my studio in St.Louis and was able to work with young and old alike. His creativity is inspiring and we were Very Happy with him. He is very talented and proficient in his violin skills.
Jodi has been teaching piano lessons in my home to my three children for over two years and we couldn't be happier. She has an easy way with the children, they have learned a great deal of theory, they play very well and they LOVE to play. I highly recommend Jodi Griffith as a piano teacher.
Peter Han was a great and very professional violin player. He played so well and the audience were impressed.
It was great to meet Christyn. She is very sweet and puts you at ease. I am looking forward to a continued working relationship.
I used to play trumpet but wanted to shift to violin for a softer sound. I had never held a bow before and didn't know how to place my fingers or anything. Niki has taken a potentially daunting process and made it accessible, helping me learn the basics little by little. She is really encouraging and good at identifying areas to hone in on. Her own experience as a performer comes through, and it is fun to work with her. I am so happy to have found Niki to teach me and recommend her for any range of levels!
Julian has been a great influence on my daughter’s musical growth. He holds her to an appropriately high standard while keeping the lessons fun and engaging. My daughter loves her lessons and the comprehensive practice strategy Julian provides. He has increased her endurance for practicing which has allowed her to make some significant technical leaps. Since working with Julian I’ve seen improvements in her technique and her commitment to her violin. I’d highly recommend him to anyone looking for exceptional violin instruction!
We used the Mozart Academy for our son's guitar lessons. The teacher was friendly & fun, the rates were competitive & he even got to participate in a recital. Highly recommend!
Ms Gurfinkel is an extraordinary teacher. I have been taking lessons from her on a weekly basis for half a year now and my violin playing skills have grown tremendously. A little bit about myself, I am 24 years old, and I had been playing violin for two years when I was in middle school, and when I came to Ms Gurfinkel I had been on a hiatus for almost a decade. Ms Gurfinkel was able to see where my skill level was and taylor her teaching to my needs. She will give you challenging piece to practice but within your abilities. She know basically every classic piece so if there is one specific piece that you really want to learn, she can teach you! She is very nice, if you practiced the previous week, haha. If you haven't been practicing enough, she can tell and she will be strict on you, which is a good thing. And by enough practice, I mean generally one to two hours a day, around ten hours per week. If you want to take your violin playing to the next level, or if you want to start learning violin, come take lessons from Ms Gurfinkel, you won't be disappointed.
She is a great teacher! Very committed and passionate about her job. Also, a great violinist and a beautiful person!

I play the violin and piano. I teach how to play them. I play the violin for weddings, religious events and more.
I love to see my students getting better but I really love to see them enjoy playing their instrument.
