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.

My son and I have been taking piano lessons from Mayu for 5 years. My son started as a beginner, when he was 3 years old. I started, as wanting to improve my skills, after so many years of mediocre playing. Mayu always shares her rich knowledge of music with us. We are very happy with our progress.

My 9 year old daughter wants to play the flute in her school orchestra this year. She has no experience playing the flute so before her first class we decided that she should have private lessons before the start of the school year. At her very first lesson, Jessica Valiente was able to get her to produce a good sound from the flute. This is extremely difficult for beginning students to do. On the first day of orchestra my daughter was the only beginning student who could produce a sound, she was also the only one who knew the names of the different parts of the flute. I attribute this to Jessica's patience, ability to work with young students and her experience as a teacher and performer. I highly recommend her.

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.

As an adult student of the flute I cannot recommend Daniel’s teaching more. I have studied with him for just under two years and my progress on the flute has been amazing. Our lessons are focused and fun and because of his knowledge and expertise I feel confident he is guiding me in the right direction. Having his studio in mid-town Manhattan has also been a plus for me as it has been convenient from where I live. He is also a very talented musician! I highly recommend Daniel

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.

I think Julie is an awesome teacher. I'm in my 20's and was looking for someone to teach me the saxophone. I was a total beginner, and Julie was so patient from the beginning. During each lesson, Julie taught me new things while enforcing the ideas she taught the previous lessons so that I would work on perfecting one skill while learning a new one, which encouraged me to continue practicing and working on the skills. Overall, I think Julie is a wonderful amd talented teacher that really knows how to teach each student on their own level, and I'm so grateful to have taken lessons with her.

My 9-year old niece has been taking flute lessons with Kelly for about three years now and we couldn't be happier! Kelly is kind, patient and motivating and my niece looks forward to lessons every week. Not to mention she had progressed so much since she first started and has had the opportunity to play in a few recitals that Kelly organizes for her students. Kelly is a very detailed teacher and takes the time to go over every facet of flute playing, ranging from technique to musical expressivity. My niece is so inspired and absolutely loves Kelly-I cannot recommend Kelly highly enough!!

    Jon is an AWESOME teacher!!! I can't believe how fast I am improving since starting lessons about 6 months ago. I got to a page in my book that I got stuck on with my old teacher. It took Jon 5 minutes to see what I was doing wrong, told me and then I could do it instantly! John is a really cool Australian who is always really nice and funny but he also holds me to high standards. I started saxophone two years ago for my middle school big band coz they needed anyone to fill the chair but now I practice every day or most of them anyway because I like it and want to be good for Jon. Jon is the man!

      Suzanne has been my teacher (flute) for about 4 years. She has helped me develop my confidence, technique, and overall playing. She has helped me advance in more professional groups in NJYS and prepare me for the audition process. I extremely recommend her to any new or advanced player. Thank you so much Suzanne!!
