Jimmy is teaching both of my sons how to play the electric and acoustic guitar. My 19-year-old came home after one lesson amazed that Jimmy wrote the notes out for a song that he wants to learn how to play. "He's a guitar god mom!" he said. A true musician, Jimmy's lessons will help your child succeed in any area of life. Jimmy showed my son how to break down a song and analyze it's notes and cadences and play it exactly as it was written. Jimmy is a world-class artist who has toured with major R&B acts. A music lesson is like a master class.

I am an adult student, having had several previous years of classical lessons with other teachers. I have just begun lessons with Tatiana and have found her very easy to work with. I was immediately impressed by her extensive knowledge of composers, types of music, theory, and analysis of pieces of music. From my very first lesson I learned several things and know that continued lessons with her will only help me improve in technique and understanding music better. I am looking forward to learning more from her. And, of course, she plays most beautifully! I heartily recommend her.

Dr. Hall is by far one of the best teachers and mentors I have ever had. Not only has he improved my singing exponentially in just a few lessons, but he has helped me with my personal life in planning for college and my career. I do not regret a cent.

Such an incredible experience .. from the moment that we met with Kevin and Angela, I could tell that they were incredibly talented teachers but also very professional in running their business. I started my piano lessons in my 40's and Angela never made me feel as though I wasn't giving it my best or should be moving at a faster pace. She was patient and encouraging all while keeping my busy mind on task. I am sure that I challenged her at times more than her younger students yet her quick laugh and gentle spirit kept the lesson light and moving forward. I always looked forward to my evenings with her, first as a teacher and then as a friend. I refer everyone that I know to her and I have yet to hear of an unhappy family.

I have had two lessons with Scott and I am having a great time. We communicate well together, and he has a lot of knowledge and experience that he can pass on to me. I expect to continue my lessons for quite some time. Scott was a great find for me.

"Aurelien has an exceptional approach to fostering a child's appreciation of music.  The structure of his class is dynamic and engaging; he is exposing children to the piano but also core musical concepts like rhythm, soft and loud sounds, high and low notes.  His approach is grounded in creativity, encouragement, and close observation of his students.   In teaching piano, Aurelien has found his vocation."

What I really like about Jasmine's teaching is that she highly recognized the value of parent involvement, particularly for young students of 4-5 years old. When my daughter first started piano lessons with another teacher, it was "closed-door" and I have no idea what goes behind the door, what she has learned, or where she needs practice. At that age, they may not recall what they've learned or what they need to work on. So for 2 months, I saw her kept repeating the same exercises. When I found Jasmine, I was elated! She encourages parents to sit in the lessons and see what she's teaching, and after every lesson, she will write in a notebook what the child has learned that day. This way, she explained, the parent can coach the child during the week and the student can progress faster. She wants her lessons not be practice sessions, but be lessons where new things can be added on. True enough, in 3 lessons, my daughter has learned more than she had in 2 months! I'm very impressed and would highly recommend Jasmine to anyone seeking to have a good foundation training in piano for their kids.

My son is on the spectrum, and it's hard to find tutors who are creative enough to make lessons that are comprehensive enough for him, and he can relate to. I love that he enjoys his music lessons and doesn't see them as a "chore", he looks forward to them. That speaks volumes!

Bethany has been providing voice lessons to my 10-year-old daughter for a few weeks. She clearly knows what she is doing both musically and regarding working with children. She knows how to talk to my daughter and challenge her without overwhelming her with too much information all at once. I have been most impressed with her willingness to go above and beyond to meet my daughter's interests by looking for specific music for her that will meet her personal needs. We both love that she didn't just come in with her own plan and try to force my daughter to adapt to it. She has also been great because she is not trying to force my daughter to sing like a Disney princess which is good because my daughter is an alto, not a soprano! She is really helping her learn how to control and get the most out of her own voice. I cannot think of anything that I would change about our experience with Bethany.

    Daniel is an excellent teacher - we worked together at a music school teaching several days a week with 10-15 students per day. He participated in rock band group classes, recitals, and different styles of learning with all ages on several instruments. Daniel is great with kids, building their confidence and going at their pace, and helping them to enjoy learning their instrument, not just mindlessly going through the motions. He is an experienced musician in and around town and is a great mentor and role model for young musicians. He is extremely talented and has a lot to share, with older musicians who are committed to going deeper into their craft as well as beginners. I highly recommend him!

    I love having lessons with Dr. Olson. I have fallen in love with piano after learning with Dr. Olson. I have learned to play the pieces of different style, from classical to romantic. He would let me feel the music instead of just tell me what to do. I still remember Dr. Olson said I could imagine the piano as an orchestra. That made me enjoy the piece a lot more because I can feel the melody and harmony.
