Jim is a great teacher with a very pleasant teaching style. I took piano lessons as a kid (forced by parents) and hesitantly decided to pick things back up as an adult. I'm in my 9th week. Jim is very patient and understanding of those hectic work weeks when there's not a lot of practice time in between lessons. We go at my own pace with no pressure to be perfect each week (I got that a lot as a kid) and I'm getting a lot out of each weekly lesson. I look forward to practicing on my own at home because the music selections are fun and well-known. I also think he's very reasonably priced too given his extensive musical background. It's a real bargain!

I am enjoying my piano lessons a great deal. James is helping me establish my own plan, learning at my own rate. He is always ready for me when I get to his house and has a beautiful grand piano that I enjoyed playing.

I am a mother of grown children who decided to take piano lessons after years of running my children to various lessons and recitals. I had piano lessons as a young child and kept playing casually at home. Shulamit’s excellent technical training and knowledge of classical music has been inspiring to me for the two years I have been her student. It has kept me moving forward through the disciplined process of consistent practice at a level I never had experienced before. Now I even enjoy listening to Bach Inventions for enjoyment!

I have been taking lessons with Shulamit for about 4 months now, and her teaching has helped me immensely to improve. She is incredibly knowledgeable about all things music and is able to offer truly helpful insight that is rare among piano teachers. She is willing to help push me when I wish to strive for harder pieces, but also understands and helps me when I need more practice. I would highly recommend Shulamit to anyone wishing to take piano lessons.

I started playing piano when I was over 50 years old. I have been taking piano lessons from Shulamit for the last year and a half. She is an excellent pianist and has a great ear- she hears all my mistakes. She has been helping me fix my bad piano habits. My playing is much better thanks to her. It would be difficult to find someone as accomplished as she.

My daughter has been taking singing lessons on and off with Priscilla for the last 8 years since she was 5 years old. Priscilla is amazing, she's very talented, patient, easy to work with and affordable. We have worked on and off because of the phases and lack of seriousness that my daughter has went through in stages since she was so young however she works extremely well with Priscilla and she has learned so much! We are looking forward to taking writing sessions and keyboard lessons with Priscilla as well!

Michael has been working with our 21 year old special needs grandson, Matthew, for 3 hours or so a month over the past year. Matthew has had narrow interests (Disney videos) with no time for any other outside interests. Michael has been able to draw Matthew out by relating to Matthew's Disney characters through other books, stories, music and games. Matthew's focus and awareness has been expanding thanks to Michael's thoughtful engagement and interactions. Michael has helped Matthew develop the means to carry on a conversation beyond the limited "yes" and "no" stage. Michael has a gentle way of sensing and guiding an individual via his art, voice, song, books, games in teasing out more expression and personality in the "special needs" realm!

I frequently take my grandchildren to their music lessons with Dr Barbara Lamb. Dr Lamb has a vast knowledge of music and of different instruments. My grandson has improved greatly under Dr Lamb’s tutelage, both as a school teacher and leader of The Fabulous Fiddlers through fourth grade and as a private teacher. He is now able to read music in both treble and bass clefs and the tone when he plays has improved greatly. She includes vocabulary slowly, as in the musical signs and terms for tempo, etc. She gently guides him into making improvements in his stroking and incorporates interesting bits of information about the music he is playing. When it is obvious he hasn’t practiced enough she doesn’t chide but instead tells him how and why the music would sound better if he were able to spend more time playing. He enjoys the fact that in addition to the standard teaching books she will coach him on music he brings in, Star Wars themes in particular. When he brought in his recorder and played a piece for her she complimented his playing and also gave hints on fingering and breath technique. She is very patient and when my grandson starts rambling about other things she listens and gently guides him back to the topic. She instilled a love of music in both children and I enjoy hearing them sing when they are in the shower. My grandson says he would give Dr Lamb a 5-star rating, adding that she is nice, patient and she knows a lot. He was very disappointed when she left his school and the Fabulous Fiddlers program was dropped. It had taught him discipline and had prompted him to work harder on improving his cello skills. He is looking forward to continuing cello as he moves on to middle school. My granddaughter has had to drop lessons temporarily due to school responsibilities but she also enjoyed her lessons and progressed well. She hopes to be able to continue guitar lessons in the future.

Fantastic! My husband and I are not musical, and were not raised in musical homes, so when our daughter started to take violin lessons there was a lot of apprehension, particularly with her young age. Dr. Lamb taught her violin and taught us how to help and be supportive. She has been a great influence, patient and kind, while still understanding how to push her forward. She is a clear communicator and sets both short term and long term goals in order to keep practice fresh and fun, while still allowing for the kids to reach their potential.

Sharon is an outstanding teacher. I take my two grandchildren to her for piano lessons and they love to go. They learn differently and Sharon teaches them the way they learn best and picks music that they enjoy as well as being challenging. When one has to miss a lesson the other always wants to have that time tacked onto her lesson . I could not be more pleased.

Sharon is an incredible teacher. She has nurtured my kids on baritone and clarinet and grown their love and appreciation for the music while making incredible progress on her skills. My kids look forward to their lessons each week. We are incredibly grateful to have found Sharon and give her the highest possible recommendation!!

Very competent and engaging musicians and teachers. My kids love going to their lessons and have for seven years. The recitals are opportunities for them to get comfortable being in front of an audience which will seve them well in the future.

Maria Grant's success in teaching is her ability to look at the individuality of each student and the keen sense to adjust her teaching style to fit their needs. She's willing to go the extra mile and look for new ways to continually motivate and challenge her students to want to do their best. She's passionate about her love of music and what greater gift could she offer than to pass that on to her students. Maria teaches both the young and the not so young. As a 'not so young' student, she taught me to focus more on the purpose of being a musician and less on the performance. I am so grateful for her as my teacher and mentor.

Maria's passion for music is very apparent every single week that we show up for lessons. I've been so fortunate to watch my daughter go from a little girl taking lessons to a young adult continually working on her passion. The lessons now are a true collaboration between teacher and student where ideas are exchanged and a deeper thought goes into conveying the artistic meaning of the song. Music has become my child's passion, largely due to Maria's guidance and compassion. I'm so grateful we found Maria to pass on this beautiful gift.

Imogen taught my daughter through advanced repertoire and now I am an adult student in my 4th year of lessons with Imogen. She is an incredible teacher who amazes me with her ability to take a student from playing notes to performing with great musicality! She is patient and respectful of different learning styles and able to motivate students with diverse backgrounds, goals and personalities. Of course, Imogen is an accomplished musician herself and it is always a delight to hear her in concert.

Imogen has calm energy as a teacher. She's engaging so that my daughter (she's six) listens and understands what's expected. Imogen's creative about ways to motivate my daughter at lessons and at home to make practice fun. She looks at where my daughter is and gives her enough to challenge her but not to make her frustrated, so my daughter feels good about what she's learning. Imogen's also an amazing pianist.

Ellen played piano for my outdoor wedding. I was so delighted to have her a part of our big day. Before the event, we discussed expectations (cost, length, breaks etc.) and we picked out music. She was extremely knowledgeable and talented, there was nothing that she couldn't play. When it came to the big day, she was so professional. She didn't go to me with any questions (as I think this can be an issue for a lot of brides!) and was able to set up and get going on her own because everything was planned out beforehand. My guests and I enjoyed the music so much, it really took the event to the next level. I got so many compliments for my music/performer choice. I highly recommend Ellen for any of your music needs. She is a fabulous person to work with.

I took piano lessons from Ellen for some time to grow a number of musical skills that are difficult to work on as a string musician. While not a beginner to music, I didn't have much piano experience at all. Ellen was able to quickly assess things I needed to improve and gave me a lot of good strategies for practicing them. As an adult, I wanted to learn pieces and songs to play. Ellen did a great job of finding music that was interesting for an adult, while taking my playing ability into account. I'm a far more confident piano player now. Ellen was also very easy to communicate with to set up our schedule. She takes a very professional approach to the work that she does, and made learning the piano fun too!

About

I have taught piano for over 25 years, and I enjoy seeing a student go from knowing nothing about playing the piano to being as advanced as they want to be. I believe in using encouragement as a motivator along with much patience. As long as a student is really trying to do his best, mistakes do not bother me. I just help the students work through their mistakes, and try to help them learn through them. I teach students from age 5 and up. I do not take students younger than 5; at this age, students must have someone at home who can sit with them, and help them with their practicing. All beginning students must be able to write and say the alphabet and their numbers 1-10. I charge $18 per 1/2-hour lesson given weekly. The lessons are paid for by the month at the first lesson of the month.
