Excellent teacher! "I've been taking piano lessons with Bulent for over 2 months now and he's been fantastic! He really teaches how to play with a lot of feel for the music and helps hone your intuition for how a piece should sound. He's very precise and is great at identifying areas for you to develop skills on, or what things to practice etc."

Well, I have only had a couple of lessons with Otis but he is so layed back in his teaching style, I was instantly comfortable. Otis is very patient and encouraging. He has a lot of experience, he has played and written music for many years. He has also had his songs produced as well. He is well known in his community.

I've been taking guitar lessons from Nick Cooper for 7 months. Besides having a great time, I've learned a tremendous amount from Nick and improved my playing greatly. Whenever I'm having an issue, he's has been able to give me the right exercises and instruction to iron my problems out and keep me progressing. His lessons always keep in mind my personal preferences and objectives. I'm particularly excited about his plans for group workshops to involve all of his interested students. Being an older adult with a full-time job, I've been especially appreciative of his efforts to work within my schedule and time constraints. All in all, I look to be studying with Nick for a long time. Cliff Cahall

I have been taking classical guitar lessons from Bertrand for a few weeks and am pleased with the progress. Bertrand has a contagious music philosophy and a knack for intertwining genres. He emphasizes music theory beyond the guitar and is constantly interested in the structural foundations of the pieces I play.

Jaime is a great teacher! He builds lessons based on the goals of the student. I have been playing for many years but we still found a lot of things to work on. I was able to correct a lot of technique under his guidance. He's flexible with scheduling and is responsive when you need to ask him a question outside lessons.

A perfect match for my 15 year old daughter taking singing lessons. Amanda's knowledge, talent, and enthusiasm are contagious. She has fostered my daughter's confidence and developed her singing skills. I highly recommend Amanda. You become part of her singing family and she gives more than 100% of herself each lesson. I wouldn't go anywhere else!

My 12 year old daughter has been taking lessons with Aliana for 3 years now. She has been taught all the correct techniques. She has been challenged but never pushed beyond her abilities given her age. Aliana keeps lessons fun with just the right amount of criticism to get the most out of her students. We would recommend Aliana to singers of all ages and abilities.

Cristina has been teaching our two daughters (now 10 and 11) for the last three years. We feel blessed to have found her 3 years ago through Berklee school of music. She is a gifted singer, and prepares weekly lesson plans for our daughters. She focuses on music theory, does vocal warm-ups and has helped them tremendously with their performance skills. She puts her heart and soul into everything she does and cares not just about the girls progress in singing but about them as a whole, their confidence and well-being. However, not only is Cristina, an amazing teacher and vocalist, but she is a role model to our girls and has become part of our family. We feel so fortunate to have found Cristina. Anyone looking for singing lessons would be lucky to have Cristina.

I started my lessons with Grey since last Sep. it has been a few months, and now I can progress on different chords, play a full song and get ready for a recital! Grey has the intuition to tell where you need to improve on and tricks on being a better guitarist! :D He also treats you as a friend, so you will never feel discouraged when you get stuck on any piece of your music.

Evan is a fantastic music teacher! I took guitar lessons from him for a year, and was always impressed by his tailored approach to his students, his own playing ability, and his knowledge of music theory. Plus, the lessons were fun and introduced the basics of guitar in a fresh, memorable way. Highly recommended.

It was a pleasure to take piano lessons with Don in his studio. He is professional, organized and kind! I was given a binder to help organize homework, repertoire. But I had to take a break from lessons for personal reasons. I think I will return to them soon next year! And Don will definitely be one of my top choices.

I have three guitar lessons with Evan and he has already given me so much great stuff to work on! I had been teaching myself for about six months, but Evan has done so much more for me and shown me so many ways to improve. I am really looking forward to continuing learning from him.

My son took beginner piano lessons from Fiona last year. He is a very sensitive boy and was nervous about learning an instrument for the first time, but Fiona put him at ease right away. She has a sweet and earnest teaching style, and explains new concepts in a way that's welcoming and easy to understand. I know her willingness to teach him whatever music he wanted to learn went a long way towards keeping his attention on the piano and away from the iPad. We always looked forward to our lessons with her!

I started taking guitar lessons from Bob around 9 months ago. Prior to that, I had been self-training for around 3 years. Thanks to Bob's methodical way of teaching, I feel that I have made more progress in past 9 months than I had in the 3 years before that. Bob's teaching focuses heavily on music theory, and that itself was a boon for me. Knowing the theory not only opened my horizons to improvisation, but it also helped me write music on my own. In addition to that, Bob is invested in every aspect of the development of my musical skills, including my playing technique, precision and--last but not the least--finesse of playing. There's a difference in playing guitar for x number of years, and playing guitar in a way that's worthy of recording in a studio or performing in front of a live audience. Bob's lessons have made that difference more obvious to me than they ever were. Lastly, Bob also customizes the lessons based on my immediate requirements. So, if I have to learn a particular song to cover, or compose something for my band, Bob gives that as much importance as I would. In all, I'd recommend Bob to anybody who's serious about guitaring, and wants help in taking their guitaring to the level of a professional.
