I have used Alvin Smithson's services for over five years as a piano tuner, teacher and performer. I am always impressed with his skills, artistry and professionalism. Alvin first came to tune my 100-years old Steinway after it had been neglected for a number of years. He first examined the instrument, diagnosed what needed to be done and then proceeded with his expert tuning. Immediately after he was done and started playing, I was amazed at how good the piano sounded. Alvin explained that with a piano that hasn't been tuned or played in so many years, it will take some time to achieve its best form and sound for which it was built. A short time after, my wife started taking piano lessons from Alvin and as she started gaining proficiency in playing under his guidance, the piano itself gained a rich pleasing sound. Alvin paid close attention and adjusted notes or did a full tuning whenever needed. He also took the time to clean the strings and do minor technical adjustments. When a string needed to be replaced, Alvin recommended a technician from a highly reputable company. Overall, we owe it to his expertise to have the wonderful old piano do what it was built for by the Steinway masters. I should also mention that I heard some great musicians at venues where Alvin is the regular piano tuner. People who visit our house and hear our piano, or play it themselves, always compliment its sound. But the best comes when Alvin himself sits at the keyboard, whether at our house, at a social function or performing in the theater, it's such a joy to hear him play some great classical pieces as well as his own wonderful compositions. He is truly a very talented, sensitive and highly knowledgeable artist. And such a pleasant person, too. My wife and I feel fortunate to have Alvin give us the best piano sound to enjoy live music in our home. I would recommend him to anyone as piano tuner, teacher and overall musician.
Debbie is a beautiful soul who is very knowledgeable about music. She meets you where you are and works with you to get you where you want to be. I'm excited to continue my lessons with Debbie and to learn as much as possible about singing and music.
Andrew is a terrific instructor. He starts with the basics and as a result a solid foundation is started for good drumming. Andrew customizes lessons and genres to individual preferences and needs, and knows how to keep it fun while learning. I would recommend Andrew as an instructor to friends and family looking to learn how to drum.
When you select Keith as a drum teacher, you're getting so much more! Keith is gifted teacher who uses math, science and real-life experiences when teaching. He is punctual, professional and responsive. Like any teacher, Keith expects practice and progress...as do we. Thank you, Keith, for teaching SP to set high goals and to work hard to achieve those goals in all of his endeavors--school, music, TKD, soccer, life!
Lisa C. is my daughter's piano teacher. She has highly skills in piano and always shows the greatest patience in teaching. She is professional in piano and music theory. My daughter very love her and learn more from her. My daughter and I always give high appraisal to her ability and teaching. I and my daughter thank a lot for her long-term good work in teaching.
I have taken over a years worth of guitar lessons from American Music Studio and will continue taking lessons into the future. Brett in co. cater lessons to your skill level and learning style, encouraging you to push the limits and learn more. The instructors are approachable, motivational, personable and experts in their craft. I cannot express how educational and enlightening my experience with American Music Studio has been.
Drum and guitar lessons--prompt, patient, and gave great exercises to use for practice.
Maddie is a professional. She has natural talent in music/acting and has studied and trained in this area. Lessons with Maddie are like advanced courses! She gets so much accomplished in every lesson. She can play any music, knows so much music and her voice is...amazing--can't get enough. The fact that she has the ability to teach is what sets her apart.
William is both an incredible performer and teacher. I studied under him for a few semesters while taking lessons at the Eastman School of Music and I found his approach to technique and musicality to be very effective. He also pushes the importance of ear training and how it can help with intonation issues. Overall, William's a great guy to work with and he will push you to be better.
My 13 year old is taking saxophone classes with James. He is wonderful teacher, always on time, very positive and great at motivating students. We feel my daughter has make much improvement in just a few lessons. I highly recommend Cadenza Studios!
Melissa makes you feel very welcomed at every lesson. She is also invested in the material she teaches and her students. She tailors the music lesson to fit the student. Lastly, you feel encouraged when being taught by Her. Taking piano lesson with her is your best choice.
Im so excited to start my lessons with Derrick! After meeting with him I knew he would be the best fit for me. He has such a great personality and I know he is going to help me make great strides to achieve my goals with my vocal lessons with him. I would highly recommend Hewlett's Music Studio to any vocal scholar!!
Charles is the best. Ive been taking singing lessons for 17 weeks or so and i hear a tremendous difference in the way my voice sounds. On the first day he will give you a broad overview covering his techniques. Then you can pick and choose what you would like to learn. Charles will give you simple drills that might feel a bit funny when you first try them, but if you just do what he says and practice for an hour or two per week you will magically get a little better each week because Charles knows his stuff. His knowledge comes from experience and academic papers he has read vigorously. Just do what the guy says and dont forget to practice, and i promise you will improve. People who have said I would never be a good singer have retracted their statements and admitted they were wrong after only 12 weeks!
My daughter has been taking lessons with Carly for a year (after 4.5 year with a different teacher). Carly is a friendly, patient, and thoughtful teacher. She encourages my daughter to learn a variety of music styles and to attempt challenging pieces. My daughter especially enjoys playing duets with Carly because she feels this teaching method helps her work on her timing. Carly is a great violin teacher!
I am currently taking lessons with Ms. Carol Westcott and I could not be more thrilled. The setting of the studio is not only comfortable but welcoming, while at the same time her expertise and knowledge make it so easy for me to trust her judgment. She has a very technical way of teaching; when something goes askew in my voice, she tells me exactly what happened, and even has a 3-D laminated model of the larynx and vocal cords to show me what happens when I sing low, high and in between. On the other hand, she knows my voice so well that she can tell me exactly what to do based on my unique voice in order to produce a certain sound or tone. She has helped me develop my opera, chest mix, chest register, head register, low, middle, and high belt, as well as different styles of music, such as country, pop, alternative and musical theater. ONE LAST THING: I arrived at my first lesson not knowing a THING about sheet music...I had based my learning on sound for my whole life, so I couldn't read notes, keys or symbols. She taught me how to do just that. Thank you, Ms. Carol!
While I’ve only started my violin lessons Kirsten has been a wonderful teacher whom I know will be able to help me learn to play the violin.
Excellent teacher who teaches music very holistically: not just how to play the piano but ear-training, theory, improvising, music history, and more. My son has made huge gains in just two years. Highly recommend.
Max Kuzmyak is a very knowledgeable musician with a large skill set that is useful in the music industry. He can teach trumpet, guitar, voice, and has extensive theory knowledge as well. He is also well versed in recording and audio engineering. Max is very friendly, easy to work with, and professional. I would highly recommend working with him if you are looking for a private teacher, or a recorder.
Michael has been teaching my kids piano and guitar. He is patient and really connects with them. He teaches them current music to keep them interested but he also teaches theory and mechanics. Great experience for my kids.
Michael is the real deal -- an accomplished composer and musician who's interested in mentoring others to further their musical interests. His knowledge of music is deep without being dogmatic in his approach and his personability adds appeal to the lessons. Highly recommended.
I have been working in the field of music education for 25 years. I am an expert at working with beginners on the piano, or any band or orchestra instrument. I teach the student not only how to play their chosen instrument, but music theory and related concepts.
