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.

I have had cello lessons with Tara for more than two years now. She is incredibly knowledgeable, patient and supportive. I’ve learned a ton. She both pushes me and tries to be flexible with what I wish to learn. I’ve never tried to learn an instrument until in my 30s and I’ve been so thankful I decided to try. She even worked hard with me through the harrowing process of buying a cello off Craigslist. Tara also teaches my son violin and he is always in high spirits after a lesson, saying he had a great time. I highly recommend her as a strings teacher!

We feel so lucky to have Ken as our daughter's cello teacher. He has a gift for connecting with kids, finding creative, clever ways to motivate them, and believing in every child's potential to improve and grow musically. He has a wonderful, fun, calm, friendly way, yet he keeps the lessons very focused and he knows how to draw out the best from his students. We hope he'll be able to teach our daughter for many years to come.

I was looking for a cello, violin and piano teacher for my 2 daughters and was lucky to find Furuya Sisters using Thumbtack. They are musical, friendly and my daughters enjoy classes with them. Thoroughly recommend anybody looking for music teachers to contact them!

Sharon makes piano lessons fun and always seems to know the right balance between strictness and light hearted fun. My favorite song was Beethoven's Pathetique Sonata, where Sharon made fun of and helped correct my slouchy posture and also helped with putting more emotion into the piece. I am pretty lazy with practice, but Sharon is very flexible and can always find something to improve even when I don't get a chance to practice.

Ron has been teaching my son Matt classical bass since he was in the 4th grade. He is now a freshman in college. Thanks to Ron and his innate talent and great personality Matt is a very gifted musician. During his school years here while with Ron he qualified for All County Orchestra a number of times. I can't say enough good things about Ron. He is a genius on many levels. I clearly think he is the BEST!!

I have been studying music and learning to play the saxophone with Mary for a year. I have been through many music teachers in my life as I used to play the piano since i was 10 years old. Most of the music teachers I have found are only interested in teaching how to play the instrument. Mary not only teaches the finer things about your instrument of choice but brings to it her overall knowledge of music theory, holistic studies, and her love of God and is able to wrap it all together where you know without a doubt music is definitely a gift from God. The one thing that truly amazes me about Mary is she takes the time to gets to know you, your personality, what techniques enable you to learn the best, your experiences and background and is able to intertwine it with her knowledge and experience and brings about a whole new understanding that I have never experienced before with other music teachers. What touches me the most and demonstrates that Mary really is concerned about the individual coming to a wonderful understanding about music is that she prays for each of her students before a lessons and ask God to help her communicate what that particular person needs to understand that day and how through music she can glorify our Lord and Saviour. I truly am blessed to find and work with Mary. She definitely brings about a whole new world in music.

I started taking Cello lessons when I retired, so I am obviously no youngster. Peter is an excellent teacher. He is very structured, very patient and obviously very knowledgeable. Not only is he also an excellent Cellist but takes the time to work with his students so that in the end, they too can excel.

Helen Martin's extensive experience as a teacher has really paid off for me. Her understanding of technique continues to expand my security in performance and she always is able to offer an expressive, musical solution to any question. But her major skill may be in keeping it light. I know that each lesson will present a new challenge and that I will welcome her approach.
