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.

My 2 children (ages 9 and 7) have been taking piano lessons from Laura for the past 8 months now and she is wonderful! My children have very different musical preferences and she is very accommodating to both. She makes the lessons fun and they always look forward to lesson days. My children are very eager to practice and learn new songs (which she provides them) and they have made leaps and bounds since Laura has become their teacher. We are very thankful to have found such a wonderful and knowledgeable teacher. I would highly recommend her!

We are very happy with "The Eternal Artist Music Studio".Neha is our Violin teacher. She is one of the fine teachers we meet. She has a lot of experience. She really works very hard with our daughter to get her inside chamber music in her school. She is very good handling kids, our daughter likes her very much. She knows how to make the class fun and at the same time teach the kid what they want to know. I heard good reviews about other teachers also in this Music studio from other friends.We definitely recommend her and her music studio to our friend and families. I liked: Best music studio, Best music teachers, Reasonable price.

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 decided to take up the violin again after last having touched one over forty years ago. I have been taking violin lessons with Haley for over six months. She quickly helped me get back some sense of the instrument. She has been patiently taking me through scales, rhythm, tempo, sight reading , and in addition has exposed me to the basics of music theory. I have found her to be welcoming, knowledgeable, friendly, flexible, yet also professional. We go through scale drills, are making our way through basic Hal Leonard books, and even do a little jamming on some rock ballads that she has downloaded for us to play along with. I haven't been practicing as much as I could or should, but Haley is cool with it. It's all been a challenge for me, but I am thoroughly enjoying it. When I progress to a higher level of playing ability, I am certain her high level of violin musicianship and teaching skill will be greatly helpful in allowing me to reach my musical goals. I would highly recommend Haley as a violin teacher for aspiring musicians of all skill levels.

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.

    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.

    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 have taken couple of voice lessons with Bogna and I was surprised how fast my singing has gotten better. She is a professional with vast knowledge of sound projection. Thanks to her enthusiasm and encouragement lessons are fun. She is very supportive. I am thankful for the opportunity to have lessons with her.

      Brian taught my daughter violin for about two years. He’s a wonderful teacher and person. He has so many great qualities: patient, creative, gentle, enthusiastic, kind, knowledgeable and funny. He shows interest in the student as a whole and always sees the ability. This was important to me as a parent of a special needs child. No musical piece was off limits or unachieveable. He is always encouraging and fun. The duets he plays with my daughter are fun and magical. He brings the music alive! My daughter always looks forward to her lessons with Brian. We are so fortunate to know him, and highly recommend him.

      My name is Sue Tai. I was Mr. Lio’s violin student in Macao two years ago. Mr. Lio taught me and my son Kenny Kam to play the violin from August 2013 to August 2015. My son Kenny and I took the violin lesson and an aural lesson once a week. Kenny took the ABRSM violin exam grade 3 under the supervision of Mr. Lio in December 2014. He passed the exam and got the certificate successfully. Mr. Lio is a serious, responsible and patient teacher. He taught us important basic skills of playing the violin at the early stage of learning violin carefully. He paid special attention to our gestures of holding the bow and clicking the fingers on the strings accurately. Besides teaching the basic skills of playing the violin, he also arranged exercises for us to practice our fingers and bowing regularly. In addition, he required Kenny to write a diary to record his practice as homework so as to improve his violin skills. Kenny and I took the violin lesson at the same time. When Kenny was playing the violin, I sat at the back, listened and watched carefully. Similarly, Kenny listened carefully when Mr. Lio was teaching me to play the violin. We took turns to practice the violin and we learned from each other’s mistakes. Mr. Lio plays the violin very well. He sets a good model for us to follow. We still keep in touch after Mr. Lio went to the U.S. for further studies. I am really thankful to Mr. Lio for his patience and seriousness in guiding me and my son towards the world of violin music.
