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.
Very comfortable environment. Lessons are easy to pick up on. She is an Outstanding and Patient teacher.
Laurie is very thougtful and kind. She has been taught piano to my 10-year-old daughter since this June. Laurie is always calm and helpful. We love our piano lesson. These days, my daughter plays piano pretty well and I’m happy I can enjoy beautiful piano!
Went for my first piano lesson. Loved it ! Brett was able to teach me so much, even in my first day. He is very professional and polite.
I have been taking piano lessons with Toni Serini for about four years, and I have thoroughly enjoyed it! I started with no instrumental experience at all, at age 61. That background made it especially important that Toni is knowledgeable, very patient, and extremely affirming. As a professional teacher myself, I can attest to the importance of each of those characteristics for student motivation and enjoyment. Toni clearly loves piano, and loves teaching the enjoyment of playing, to both adults and children. I have seen both groups thrive with her lessons. I’m so happy that a chance enrollment in a community college course led me to her!
My 6 year old son took the piano lessons with Lisa for over a year and I am amazed at his tremendous improvement in such a short time span. She is very patient and encouraging and my son really enjoys her class. Great experience with Lisa all the way around. Highly recommended!
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.
Teresa is a very talented musician and experienced piano/guitar teacher. She is kind and patient with all of her students and with everyone around her. Her lessons are affordable but also high qualitythey cover music theory, technique, musicianship, repertoire, and even a bit of music history. I have had the pleasure of observing many of her music lessons and taking piano lessons myself. I would recommend her to anyone wanting to learn piano or guitar.
Mr. Walls is an enthusiastic and patient teacher. As a choir member at Saint Elizabeth Ann Seton for the past fifteen years, I have been able to sing liturgical music, and participate with other choirs in singing more complex pieces of music, such as requiems and compositions for rites of the church and special occasions. Our choir has sung in various languages, and joined other choirs in ecumenical choir fests. Mr. Walls has studied music composition, conducting, and history, and is an accomplished musician on several instruments, including the piano, organ, and guitar. He has several years teaching experience in the U.S. and abroad. I would say Mr. Walls' expertise and talent are second to none.
Singing in church choirs has been a wonderful outlet and enabled me to find a community as I moved every few years to different parts of the globe. Finally putting down roots, I wanted to find a voice coach who would help me improve breath control, strengthen the range of my voice, and improve the overall quality of my singing. I am blessed to have found Keely Bosworth Borland, a gifted soprano and performer. Keely has been the perfect coach for me. She has a unique ability to both nurture and push me. Keely has identified and helped me work on my breath control. She has used a wide variety of music to foster my confidence while stretching my vocal range. Her lessons include a selection of vocal warm-ups and breathing exercises each week that compliment the music we sing. I have found that recording her lessons and rehearsing them between lessons to be of great help. I highly recommend Keely to anyone looking for a voice coach from the novice to the serious performer.
What a great fortune to find my perfect singing instructor through this site. Diane is a pleasure to work with. She made me feel. Try confortable and explained what goes into good singing technique and I can already see an improvement since my second lesson. She is very professional and very friendly. Very respectful and has a great way of explaining things. The price is very reasonable and she is very patient. I never took singing lessons before and have not studied music, but she was willing to teach me from nothing and I quickly learned enough to improve a lot in a little time. I can't wait to tale more lessons and get even better. I highly recommend her especially to other females that are looking for an instructor they can trust and feel safe going to her home studio and directions are easy along with a large parking lot which makes it all convenient safe and efficient. Thank you Diane!
SooJi was fantastic. She was very patient and had a great sense of humor. Very likable and I learned so much Korean. She really tailored the lessons to my needs
My daughter is loving her piano lessons with Annie! She is so kind and patient with her.
Christopher did an amazing job to help make our evening special. He played a great selection of classical and jazz piano and would be thrilled to have him back.
Yukiko is a very caring and thorough teacher. My older daughter has been taking lessons for the past two years and enjoying improving her piano and music skills very much.
Marc is such a delight to work with. He is an excellent piano teacher, patient with the kids, teaches them not only how to play but the music theory and historical context. He is super organized and helpful when it comes to scheduling too. So glad we found Marc!
I enjoyed your lessons. I began flute lessons when I was in college; I had lessons with you for three years. You are a very motivational, patient and positive teacher. I thoroughly enjoyed those lessons. Your lessons benefited me a lot and will always look forward to your instructions. Thanks! Nakalema Rebecca, Uganda
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.
My daughter is having a wonderful time learning piano with Stephanie. She is a fantastic musician/teacher and her lesson plans are really fun and informative! My husband and I have seen a vast improvement in our daughter's playing with each lesson. Highly recommended!
My daughter has been taking piano lessons from Toni for several months. I love that Toni comes to my house to teach, so that I can stay home and work on other projects during her lessons. Toni is extremely reliable, prompt, and responsive. She is very kind and patient, my daughter loves having her come and looks forward to her lessons. She always leaves a clear practice plan, so that my daughter can practice on her own and knows exactly what to do. I highly recommend piano lessons with 10 Fingers Music!
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.
