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!

Learning from Bertrand has been great! After a 10 year hiatus from guitar I started taking lessons with Bertrand, and only wish I had started sooner. Great approach and lessons are always fun.

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 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!

Jeanne responded quickly to the request, was a very good communicator, and through the first two guitar lessons with my daughter, things seem to be going very well! I greatly appreciate her willingness to travel a fair distance to come to our home and conduct the guitar lessons. Highly recommended!

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!

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.

I am an adult who has played the guitar for most of my life without ever having taken any lessons. Tristan has been an amazing resource helping me build a much deeper understanding of what I play, teaching me new ways to play, and helping me (finally!) to read music. His patience and understanding makes him an excellent teacher and mentor.

Our two sons (a tenor and a bass) took voice lessons with Thomas Fallon while in high school. Tom has a great approach to teaching proper technique and providing a solid understanding of vocal music. Our sons made great strides in becoming confident singers and had a lot of fun doing so. Tom has just a wonderful collection of experiences to drawn on when teaching and an amazing selection of songs to teach from. Our sons' musical backgrounds are so much richer owing to the variety they pursued with Tom -- from broadway showtunes, to opera, to sacred music, and, last but never least, Irish folk songs. Each hour went by quickly and was never a chore. As parents we enjoyed watching their progress and we also appreciated that Tom was always willing to accommodate the crazy schedules of two busy teens. Our connection with Tom has lasted well beyond the days of voice lessons. We continue to enjoy seeing him at local musical performances and events.

Carmen teaches piano in a very down-to-earth way and understands very quickly where you need work and what needs to happen for you to get to where you want to go musically. He's invested the time upfront with his ears to really hear whats going on and should you need to take online lessons from someone, I'd highly recommend him.

Verified review

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 can't recommend Jacob highly enough. Not only is he a super nice guy, but he is an excellent teacher. He is patient, dedicated, and very talented. He really listened to what I wanted to get out of lessons, and catered his lesson plans to my desires and goals. He even put together some really helpful videos for me (on his own time)! so I could continue learning at my own pace. Jacob is also very flexible with scheduling. I couldn't be happier with my choice to higher him!

I've been a student of his for a few years now and I have really enjoyed it. As a working professional, sometimes my practicing and lessons get pushed to the side for other priorities, and Daniel is very understanding. He is flexible with what pieces we play and how long we spend on them (not to say I can do whatever I want but he takes my requests seriously and does his best to accommodate). We have fun in the lessons, he is patient when I have an off day, and he spends the time teaching me in a way that I would understand. He even goes into a bit of music theory with me so that I can understand WHY the music is written the way it is. I would recommend Daniel as a violin teacher to anyone looking to learn - particularly if you are an adult looking to work on a hobby like I am!

I know Kamilla for over 6 years from now and, as a music teacher myself, I always admired her musical abilities and passion for music. I've heard her performing multiple times in the school I teach, and there is no doubt, Kamilla is an extremely talented musician and a great pianist.

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 took piano lessons with KK Music and Productions for a year, and in that year I saw the most progress. This took a lot of patience on Keyhan's part. He helped me to be more proficient technically, along with explore the musicality of multiple genres. We always made good use of our time-- I felt consistant movement forward and felt closer to my goals each day. Keyhan was also very organized, which helped in creating effiecent practice routines in the lessons and outside of the lessons. KK Productions helped me become a better musician all around-- truly a unique and personal experience. I couldn't have asked for more.

As a pop/jazz singer myself, I undertook weekly private lessons with Jordan at the New England Conservatory in the Spring 2018 Semester. It is sometimes hard to find both an excellent teacher and singer, yet Jordan excels in both areas. He is able to pinpoint exactly what you aren’t doing correctly and show you the right technique to be able to reach the high notes with confidence. If I ever didn’t understand the right method the first time, he would effortlessly find another way to explain the right technique until I finally understood how to implement it into my singing. He is the master of getting rid of bad habits with innovative voice exercises and I always felt like I improved after every lesson. I feel privileged to have studied with him during my studies at the conservatory and I highly recommend him without hesitation.

Trevor has a very broad musical experience to draw from and knows how to pace his teaching based off of my skill level/previous experience. The lessons and assignments are challenging but productive and fun. On top of that, he's friendly, easy-going, and flexible with scheduling. Would recommend!
