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.

I'm very much enjoying my lessons with Harry. He has a knack for explaining music theory and technique to an adult who is a complete musical beginner. I feel confident that I will learn to be pretty competent violinist under his tutelage!

I have been taking piano lessons from Myla for about a year. She is incredibly patient, kind, and attentive. She's also really funny! I think what makes her such a great teacher is her flexibility and adaptability. She's been expert in every area I've shown interest in, but still lets me guide my music education. (More details on that below.) Scheduling lessons has also been an ease with her. I tend to be a perfectionist, and she's been superb in helping me iron out details of the pieces I'm working on. She also knows a lot of music history, which I ask her about as I find it enriches the pieces, and is great at teaching music theory (and making it fun!). As soon as I get interested in a new area of music (theory and sort-of improv-playing/pseudo-composing being most recent), she's on-board, encouraging, and so helpful! I always have a blast at lessons and come away having learned so much, and excited to practice some more. In my 25 years of playing instruments, I've probably had at least 10 different teachers for various instruments, and Myla is by far my favorite! Her encouragement and contagious love of music makes her stand out from even my great teachers in the past.

We had our first piano lesson with Sean and he was wonderful. We met him at the studio and he was right on time and very professional. Sean worked great with the twins and took time to evaluate their playing ability. We will be working with Sean moving forward and are expecting great results.

Dave has been a wonderful teacher! I am a novice pianist and the lessons and homework assignments are tailored for my ability and progression. I never feel like I am being expected to do more than I am capable of. Dave is also a pleasant person to speak with, which is an added bonus, and extremely knowledgeable! I would recommend people of all ages and skill levels take lessons from him. Thank you Dave!

Enoch gave me private piano lessons at home. He is a really patient and understanding instructor and also very knowledgeable. He's punctual and very flexible. I have been doing weekly lessons with him and will continue to do so in the future. He is also a professional at jazz and R&B so if you like that genre, he is your go to guy!

I take piano lessons from Michael. He is a great teacher, particularly because he customizes his lessons to suit the students' skill levels and musical goals. He prepares material ahead of class and has a nice structured approach that I find helpful in developing a good feel for the piano. It's great that he focuses on important technicals like tempo, playing technique and theory, and his lessons are well-rounded, with just the right amount of time spent on each aspect. I like that he is flexible with both scheduling and the curriculum, and willing to tailor material to what I am interested in. He also helped me pick out an excellent piano within my budget, which was very helpful. Overall, a great experience, and definitely recommended!

My 4-year-old daughter has been taking piano lessons with Dillon for several months. He is devoted to making sure that my daughter is engaged in her lessons and learns both technique and theory. Even before working with us, Dillon recommended the right type of keyboard and piano workbook to purchase. He is very patient and dedicates a great amount of effort to instructing our daughter (and two of her 4-year-old friends). He is firm and keeps her focused (but not too firm that he intimidates her). Finally this week, my daughter went to her room and practiced by herself and is now able to play "Old MacDonald". Yay for Dillon!

Spencer was very professional. He made the lessons fun by teaching some of favorite songs, but he also explained what was happening in song so it was easier for me to learn songs on my own.

My daughter has been taking piano lessons w/ Ms. Ruth for 5+ years. We love that Ms. Ruth is herself an accomplished musician. She works well with my daughter because she knows when to push her hard and when to relax a little. Like most kids today, my daughter has multiple activities/sports in addition to her school works. Ms. Ruth is flexible with our schedule. Besides teaching my daughter to play lots of the classical pieces; she also encourages her students to play the music that they enjoy. My daughter continues to look forward to her weekly lesson with Ms. Ruth.

As an intermediate pianist I was specifically looking for a tutor (and practicing pianist) who could help me improve my technique and musicality equally. After one lesson with Daniel I realized that he absolutely fits the bill. Daniel is a concert pianist, he is enthusiastic and passionate about the piano, but more importantly a natural teacher. I learned a huge amount in the first lesson and am excited to continue working with him.

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!!

Tara taught our son jazz piano for several years, and it was a wonderful experience. The lessons had the two of them at the piano, playing together for most of the hour. Learning new patterns, call-and-response practice, and guided jamming together for 10-15 minute periods. Tara would also explain the ideas verbally and write the gist of them in a notebook. We have often attended Tara's own concerts in the area and found them exciting.

I've always wanted to learn to play the piano, but I didn't know how to read music and the whole process seemed too daunting. Katherine's patient, flexible, and super nice. Great for beginners.
