After years of being self-taught, I realized I wanted to take the next step and truly learn the instrument the right way. In just a month with Dom, it is clear that I chose the perfect teacher. His knowledge of guitar and experience in teaching has you learning to read sheet music and playing songs in just a few lessons. More importantly, Dom is encouraging and enthusiastic which inspires confidence in his students. He is patient, but continues to push you out of your comfort zone. It is clear that Dom cares deeply about the success of his students and I have developed a personal relationship that has me looking forward to the next lesson.

Rae de la Cretaz is a magician! I walked into my first lesson with her seven short months ago, after many years of longing to take singing lessons and a year of procrastinating. She put me right at ease, and I got to experience her incredible store of knowledge, energy and outright passion for the human voice. When I came in, I had what I described as a "pleasant" voice, no better, no worse. I had been singing (mostly to myself) for my entire life, and for the last 18 years with a choir. The change in this short amount of time still surprises me. Sometimes when I sing during my lesson, I hardly recognize that it's me singing. There's a richness that I would have admired in others, but never thought would be possible for me. People whose opinions I respect have come forward and remarked favorably about my voice, something I didn't experience before. In the short time that I've been taking lessons with Rae, I've learned so much, and look forward to coming to each lesson. She is a treasure!

Phenomenal musician, great teacher, cool cat - I rate David First INFINITY STARS. I've studied music here and there, but it wasn't until I started taking bass lessons with David a few years ago that it all came together for me. He explains music theory in a way I can understand and translate to actual practice that is not a chore, it is fun and addictive! Besides developing technical skill, Dave also helped me grow as a musician by getting over feeling awkward jamming with other people. I eventually felt comfortable enough to audition for bands and ended up in a fun one, playing out in the city even! David was there for my first gig, too. My husband was so impressed with my progress, he started guitar lessons last year and has come so far, it is amazing. We feel like Grasshoppers to David's Master Po. He is the best, ok I'll stop now, you get it.

I have never taken singing lessons before. With just a couple of lessons with Mara I have noticed a tremendous change in my vocals. I am able to reach notes that I did not know existed for me, I am in better control of my breathing, my phrasing is better and overall became more confident in my singing ability. Thanks Mara!

I have not been working with Pamela for long, so ask me again in a couple of months and I'll probably change to 5 stars! So far I enjoy my lessons and the exercises we do have already expanded my range. My high E used to be just a squeak but now I can really sing it after only a few lessons, and I even feel more confident with my lower range - something that has always been a struggle. I look forward to seeing what is in store with her guidance. I fully recommend Miss Pamela!

Michelle is the piano teacher I wished for when I was a kid! Michelle is patient, enthusiastic and knowledgeable. One of the things my 7-year-old loves most about Michelle is that she lets her explore her musical creative side. Michelle has guided my daughter in composing her own music, tackling tough songs of her own choosing and in introducing instruments like the harmonica into her selections. Michelle is always upbeat and full of positive energy and as a result my daughter loves her music lessons.

Anette gave voice lessons to my 11 year old daughter. She was knowledgable, patient, and fun. She worked on songs that my daughter wanted to sing. She was understanding about school schedules. And it was great to be able to hear the entire lesson through dropbox.

Josh is an awesome instructor! Everything we worked on was based off of what I wanted to learn. He sequenced everything so I could be challenged and have stuff to work on but wasn't overwhelmed. He really knows his stuff, teaching me the technique of how to pick properly and the basics of music theory. My soloing sounded way better after only a few sessions! Josh is a great person and is very knowledgable, I highly recommend him for all levels of guitar

Josh does an amazing job teaching my 8 year old son who started with piano lessons and recently added the electric bass. Josh's method of teaching encourages the kids to pick out fun, often current, songs and gradually build upon the basics. Because he likes the music, my son has made so much progress - he's excited to go to lessons and loves practicing at home (a big change from his previous lessons). We couldn't ask for a better experience.

Amazing vocal teacher! Nicky is a great vocal teacher who is kind and patient. She has been working with my 11 year daughter for about 3 years. Nicky makes the extra effort to use age appropriate songs and part of the lesson includes music theory. Win win! My daughter can’t commit to the practice time necessary with an instrument, so we went with vocal lessons with Nicky. With singing she can practice any time and anywhere. Nicky has been able to bring out some beautiful notes, making this mom very proud. Can’t beat the price - she comes to our home and is a very accommodating with our crazy schedule. Again she is an AMAZING vocal teacher!!

Working with Genya is fun! She has a gentle and encouraging style coupled with a great sense of humor that has made even vocal drills enjoyable after a long hard day at work. She has a deep love of music that is just contagious; and if, on occasion, I leave my enthusiasm at home, she has plenty for both of us. She also hones in quickly on whatever bad singing habit I may have picked up and works efficiently to correct my technique. She is able to deliver information at a good pace, without ever moving too quickly. To me, Genya has the whole package: she is light-hearted and fun-loving, she has a deep love and understanding of music, and she has natural teaching ability.

WillYouLearn is amazing! My four year old (almost five) loves every minute of his music lessons and can't wait for the next one. We are impressed that he was learning how to play by ear in the first lesson. I can't recommend WillYouLearn enough!

She made me feel super at ease from the very start. Always showed up to lessons with a plan A and a plan B, so that I could be the one to decide how I wanted to tailor my lessons. Loved that! I improved so much from her lessons, not only in actual skills but in confidence as well. Such a genuine person with so much talent to share!!

I've been taking weekly lessons with Corinn for about 7/8 weeks and cannot believe the improvement. I feel so much more prepared and confident for my upcoming auditions. I can honestly say that I have never had a voice teacher as knowledgeable and as committed to my success as Corinn is. I can't thank you enough Corinn!!
