Matthew is very professional musician. He took a lot of time to assist me preparing a very special song list for my husband's birthday dinner party. My family really enjoyed themselves especially because of his soulful sounds from playing the saxophone. He was mesmerizing. And, we're going to invite him back in the near future. Thanks, Matthew!

Barb's Continuo Home Music Lessons provided home lessons to my son. Not only was the instructor very talented, but they knew exactly how to interact with a young person to keep his interest throughout the lesson and encouraged practicing beyond the lesson. Barb is always prompt and goes out of her way to accomodate scheduling issues.

Corey is an excellent Saxophone instructor. He prepared me more than adequately to both audition for and succeed as a Saxophone performance major at Lebanon Valley College. His commitment to my success as well as his ability as a saxophone player pushed me to be prepared and ready for my time in college.

We contacted Aakash Mittal about clarinet lessons for our son after he gave a presentation at our son's 5th grade instrumental music class. We’re very glad we did. Our son improved quickly during the three years he took lessons from Aakash. He received music awards at Centennial Middle School, twice auditioned into CU Boulder’s Middle School Honor Band, made first clarinet at CU’s Middle School Band Camp, and auditioned into Boulder High’s Wind Ensemble. To cap his time with Aakash, he gave his own clarinet recital, including three duets with Aakash, as well as the 3rd movement of Mozart’s Clarinet Concerto with piano accompaniment. More importantly, the process that led to these accomplishments was genuinely enjoyable. Our son started off with a half-hour lesson each week, and liked it so much that he quickly moved to an hour lesson. Aakash has an excellent teaching style. After our son played a piece, Aakash would ask what he thought went well, and what needed work. Aakash rarely had negative criticism and focused on what elements would improve a piece, and in getting students to honestly evaluate themselves. As our son gained skill and confidence, they got down to brass tacks more quickly—but still without him ever feeling guilty or chastised. Aakash’s primary instrument is the saxophone, but he thoroughly understands the clarinet. Lessons included instrument-specific tasks like fine pitch control, breathing, alternate fingerings, tonguing, and embouchure, as well as broader topics of playing exact rhythm, tempo changes, pitch, dynamics, and phrasing. Most importantly, he understands that, as time-consuming as these components are, they are ultimately “just” technical elements. After our son mastered them for a hard piece, they’d then work on exploiting them to play music that swoops and soars and comes from the heart. And though Aakash’s favorite style is pretty hyperactive jazz, he is comfortable with a wide range of musical styles. Our son played the MapleStory video game for years, and Aakash helped him learn transcriptions of several songs from the game. For one recital, our son found several Legend of Zelda transcriptions—evoking exclamations from other students like “We can play game music for a recital? I didn’t know that!” As our son’s taste gravitated toward classical music, Aakash was right there with him. Aakash was especially good at helping our son work on challenging pieces. Our son is always choosing music that seems a little (or sometimes, a lot) beyond his level. For example, the Mozart Clarinet Concerto is really a virtuoso recital piece. They took the 3rd movement one section at a time, sometimes playing very slowly to get the rhythms and notes right. Aakash had him try to play along with a full orchestra recording (where it was clear that playing at full tempo makes the piece exponentially more difficult.) Okay, that didn’t work, so they concentrated on getting it right at a slightly more relaxed tempo. Eventually, we brought in a friend of Aakash’s on piano, and the three of them worked on how to coordinate and figure out who was in charge of the rhythm. It made an exhilarating finale to our son’s solo recital. Aside from his skills as a teacher, Aakash is also quite practical. He knew that his own concert schedule affected his teaching schedule, so was good about trying to make up missed classes during the week, and was flexible when our own schedule interfered with lessons. We’re also impressed with his ambition—he knows that great musicians don’t sit around waiting to be “discovered”, but actively promote themselves and make things happen. We have seen him playing live with various people many times, and have enjoyed the variety of musical styles and partners. (Especially when he plays with electric violin. Hint, hint!) We enjoyed our three years with Aakash, and had mixed feelings about him leaving for India—happy for him, but sad that we were losing a great teacher. We can whole-heartedly recommend him for just about anything he’s trying to do.

Noel was very responsive and easy going when setting up the first meeting. He was very kind and patient in explaining everything, starting from the very basics (this was my first lesson with no prior experience and very little-to-no knowledge about notes etc) what kind of mouthpiece to purchase, how to put it on correctly, the basics of the instrument itself etc. The lesson felt very comfortable and informative. Noel was friendly and encouraging and seemed very experienced and passionate about the sax and teaching the magical musical ways! I'm looking forward to our next lesson together

I have enjoyed my experience with Daniel! He has been very flexible with my busy schedule, and was helpful with clarifying my goals for taking lessons. His studio is conveniently located in Manhattan and provides a bright, welcoming atmosphere for learning.

Francesco is absolutely great! Besides being one of the best saxophone players I've ever heard, he's a very good teacher. He gave me many good tips for the saxophone technique and for improvisation, he's nice, patient, and he really motivated me to practice. His knowledge of music is very large, so I would recommend him to other students of any level and for any type of music.
