Michelle is great with kids. Our 7-year old daughter loves her piano lessons and always looks forward to them. More important, we can hear that she is really learning and making great progress. Two of her school friends have started lessons with Michelle after we recommended her.

Harry has a great love of music and superb knowledge of viola, violin and piano. He's terrific at imparting theory during a lesson and always makes up the time if he arrives late or has to miss a lesson. He's cheerful and high-energy. Highly recommended.

I am fortunate to have found a dedicated and professional violin teacher for my two children. Miss Victoria has a great personality and is able to keep them focused and motivated. My daughter was especially taken immediately with her encouraging and supportive approach. Their hand position and technique are much improved since starting with Miss Victoria.

My 5 year old son started taking piano lessons with WillYouLearn a couple months ago and we are beyond thrilled! My son looks forward to the lesson each week and has made tremendous progress in the short time he has been playing. He already can play songs by memory. The lessons are thorough and our instructor is punctual, accessible and always engaged with my son. Highly recommend!

We have been students of the Piano Workshop for 7 years. Mark, the director, does a great job at matching students with teachers and is very accommodating to work with scheduling lessons especially with families that have very full schedules. We enjoy the recordings done at every recital and they make a good teaching tool as well. There are lots of teachers of various disciplines so students of all musical talents can benefit at the Piano Workshop. It's a professionally run outfit that I would recommend to all families.

Rachyl is a gifted viola teacher and violist with the San Diego Symphony! She is a 10 out of 10. San Diego is quite lucky to have such a talent like herself. Rachyl made quite a good impression on me during my first viola lesson . First of all, I could right away tell she loves teaching. I was super impressed by the amount of wisdom, knowledge, dedication and passion she had about the viola, I HAD to continue studying with her! I always came out of my lessons inspired and motivated. I continued until she finished her Master's degree in viola performance at Colburn, and was hired by the San Diego Symphony. I hope everyone in the San Diego area considering private viola lessons, from young child, to teenagers (wanting to get into a music conservatory), to adult (it's never too late!!) studies with Rachyl! She is EXCELLENT.

I was looking for a teacher who can teach beginner adult violin and I found a perfect teacher! I learned violin when I was a child so I did have prior exposure but I haven't played it for about 10 years so I didn't know where I stand or where I should start from. Tianyang also checked the condition of my violin (it was still in a playable condition thankfully). After the first lesson he could see exactly where I stand now and where I should start from. He is helping me to learn the right posture again and he's giving tons of tips as well. He is very patient and encouraging. He works well with adults but I am sure he'll be good at teaching children as well. I'm very glad to learn violin from him!

    Omer has been giving violin lessons to our youngest daughter Brenda, for almost 5 months now. Brenda is playing for 3 years, and wanted to retire we decided to look for a new younger teacher in hope she can relate and be exposed to new styles of violin music. We looked for a freshman from a good school in NY and found Omer on facebook. After only 1 month we observed a ' change' Brenda is very pleased from her new teacher and says he is very patient with her, and motivates her without much pressure. Its the first time she realized that you can play jazz or other styles with the Violin. From our end as parents we can say that omer is dedicated to his proffesion, always on time, and comes prepared with notes, and examples that shows his passion for music. we also spoted the change in brenda's motivation, she hardly waits for her next class and practices for hours. We are very pleased with the decision to take Omer as a teacher.

    This is definitely the place to come for top music instruction. As a drummer, Joe has taught me so much and is continuing to teach me more and more during each lesson. In Joe's studio; he's got sound activated lights, smoke and bubble machines, you can play along to RockBand (which is my favorite). For Joe, the sky is the limit. Always thinking of ways for his students to exceed their expectations of music instruction. I've been a student of Joe's for 10 years and he's always having new ideas to make his lesson more enjoyable. Joe's staff is always full of energy! His staff are dedicated to their students and is a lot of fun to jam out with them. The receptionist is great to get along with always helping the students rearrange their lesson to what better suits the student. Joe's one of a kind showcase is always put together with flawless detail! Reasonable rates. But, this is definitely the place to come to for top music instruction; for all ages!! Keep on Jammin' !!!

    What I love the most about Johannes is the fact that he treats his beginner-intermediate students just like his music major students or those who are preparing to audition for conservatories or precolleges. I've studied with him for about 3 years so far. I had learned the violin for a couple of years before him but had no basic technique secured and struggled a lot with tone production and overall playing quality. He put equal amount of focus on basic posture and technique with me as he does with his more serious music major students. He's obviously slower-paced with repertoire than other violin teachers who make students play a lot of pieces very poorly in a short amount of time. But each piece and etude I work on with him sounds like what I have never imagined myself would be able to sound like before. Now I know where the bow should be placed with what arm positions and muscle movements for the best quality tone production, and how the left hand should be framed and driven for secure intonation and flexibility, all thanks to Johannes. As long as you practice just the way he asks you to (which often requires you to be incredibly slow and patient), he'd never ever give up on you and never let you play poorly for years with no noticeable improvement! At first I felt as though I wasn't learning much, because he didn't give me a lot of fun pieces I really wanted to play. But 6 months to a year later, I sounded completely different and was able to play some pieces with much better tone and volume. As long as he's in New York, I'll keep studying with him.

    I'm so glad I decided to work with Helene! I have wanted to learn to play violin since I was in the third grade and was denied the opportunity to do so as a child, so as an adult I decided to take matters in my own hands and take lessons. Helene is patient, knowledgeable, and encouraging and after three years at her urging I've joined a local orchestra in addition to continuing lessons with her! I've worked with her both in person and over Skype, and am glad she offers the video lesson option as I was away at school for two years and was still able to keep up with my lessons thanks to connecting online every week. The video lessons were just as high quality as the in-person lessons and I was able to advance to learning 5th position while I was away. If you're interested in learning violin. I highly recommend Helene.

    Our daughter has been studying with Caeli for almost a year and a half. She is an amazing and patient teacher. She has really connected with our daughter and fostered a love of playing the violin and music in general. She is very encouraging but is also able to gently push her to work harder at the same time. We could not ask for a better teacher.

      Brian Vegh has been my 6 yro daughter’s violin teacher for 1.5 years. He is an excellent teacher who understands how to work with children. He makes lessons challenging yet fun and respects the personality/interests of the child. He is very positive and encouraging with my daughter yet will also redirect her if she is off track. I highly recommend Brian Vegh as a violin teacher.
