I basically asked Bulent to do a miracle, and he did it! I wanted to sing a song at my best friend's wedding, but have a terrible intonation and basically no former musical education. In a few lessons Bulent explained me the basics of singing and helped me to prepare the song. The result was great! I had so much fun that after this experience, I think I will keep taking classes with Bulent. Absolutely 5 stars!

I was a relative beginner to the guitar when I started lessons with Otis. From the first lesson he was patient, encouraging and enthusiastic. He tailors the lessons to the types of music and songs you are interested in. He has a wide range of music knowledge and styles which make him an ideal teacher who can help any student take that first step toward becoming a guitar player or help a seasoned player hone their skills. Highly recommended!

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.

I signed my 5 year old daughter up for singing lessons, and she is quite shy. Julie has been very kind and good at making my daughter feel comfortable and confident.

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!

Shane is an awesome guitar teacher! He is very laid back, fun, and pays attention to where you are as a student. He pushes you, but also makes sure you're still having fun because he knows that's what it's all about. I highly recommend him as a teacher - and the G4 method is easy to follow. Instead of grabbing your usual beer and a Lyft, spend the cash on guitar lessons you have always wanted to take!

My son has been taking piano lessons with Lenae for the past 5 years and we have been very happy with her. As he is approaching his teenage years, it's been a bit of a struggle to keep him interested but Lenae works hard to keep him engaged. She tries to find music he prefers while keeping him progressing musically. She is very patient and has a gentle manner with my son. Lenae also provides thorough and useful feedback on a regular basis. I would highly recommend Lenae if you are seeking piano lessons for your child or yourself (she has adult students too).

Wanted to take piano lessons, so I called the owner, Kris, and he made me feel very confident and comfortable in going with his studio. Charlie, my piano teacher, is very good. He's attentive, patient, and most importantly challenges me. Great experience so far. Highly recommended.

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.

Ms. Christie is a great teacher who is always on time and really cares about her students. At the Royal Academy for Music, I learned a lot from her. I got better at projecting my voice, technique, and making stylistic phrases. She lets her students pick which songs they want to sing and she likes to have her students sing a variety of styles of music. I like how her lessons always start with a warm-up to get you ready to sing the songs you picked. Overall, I think Ms. Christie is a wonderful teacher who wants to see you improve! =D

Bengisu is the vocal instructor for my son Wilson and she is helping me with music theory. The 2 hour period we spend with her every week is something my little boy, who is 7 years old, is looking forward. She knows how to set the tone with Wilson and me. Her attitude to Wilson is very playful and she makes him admire music more and more. The fact that we are working on theory and Bengisu showing me the connection between math and music theory fascinates me every time. She prepares little cue cards for me and she always sends the recording of each class with Wilson. She also sends some exercises for Wilson as video so he can watch and learn.

I have been taking lessons from Yaman for about five years and enjoy his balanced teaching style that includes fundamentals, music theory, and applied exercises. Yaman is an excellent instructor and I highly recommend him to anyone interested in learning the bass.

We weren’t sure our 6 year old son was ready to start piano lessons but we thought we would try it. Liana is so professional and treats him like a little grown up. As a result, he acts like a little adult with her and focuses on what she asks of him. In three months, he has learned the notes on the treble and bass clef, is learning the values of the notes and actually tinkers around at home with creating songs. I recommend giving Liana an opportunity to show you what she’s capable of teaching. To top it off, she is a very nice and kind woman.

I came to Ben looking for lessons on piano improvisation. Coming from nothing, Ben did an extraordinary job immediately helping me become familiar with the concept of improvising while pushing me to not only challenge myself, but to understand what I was doing and why it made sense. Ben's background and talent really show in his teaching style and I left every lesson anxious to get home and practice what we had just gone over. I'd recommend Ben to anyone who wants to get top level education in anything piano.

First of all, Lenae's enthusiasm and encouragement during lessons made the kids' introduction to piano very enjoyable and accessible for them. She was so kind to our children and so positive about the experience of making music; her rapport with the kids really made for a great start for them. They liked being with Lenae and being at her studio, and her flexibility in letting the little ones play around while the older ones got lessons was always appreciated. Getting a chance to play the Lawson Tower bells and at the different types of recitals Lenae offered were also great experiences for the kids. We also appreciated the way she let the kids follow their interest in which pieces they chose to focus on.

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've taken 3 lessons with Ben and I am extremely happy and excited about the potential of my drumming! Ben is a great, thoughtful teacher that is not scared to throw new and exciting rhythms at you. As a beginner drummer with music experience, I value his patience and friendliness and he will even cater his lessons to any style you are curious about! If you are new to drumming or are at a higher level, Ben is the guy that will open your drumming to new levels. I look forward to our lessons and many more throughout the year!
