Michelle is the piano teacher I wished for when I was a kid! Michelle is patient, enthusiastic and knowledgeable. One of the things my 7-year-old loves most about Michelle is that she lets her explore her musical creative side. Michelle has guided my daughter in composing her own music, tackling tough songs of her own choosing and in introducing instruments like the harmonica into her selections. Michelle is always upbeat and full of positive energy and as a result my daughter loves her music lessons.

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.

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!

Francis has been amazing with my 12 year old son. He has taken lessons over the years here and there but nobody has inspired him the way Francis has.. he would complain about practicing abc would never do it without a major struggle. Now, it is not uncommon that my so. Will play the piano for hours after Francis leaves.. what a wonderful blessing!! I would highly recommend Francis!

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.

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've had four lessons with Enoch. He is a responsive and challenging piano teacher. I feel like the things he is trying to teach me are directly relevant to my goals, and I always finish lessons exhausted (in a good way) because I've learned so much over the course of the hour.

From the start, Rock House has been outstanding, with a welcoming, friendly and seriously creative vibe. Extremely talented teachers, and an overall superior, professional outfit. Instructors are actual, working musicians who are certified in the Rock House Method of teaching and are deeply involved in the industry, playing alongside other well-known professionals. They truly care about their students (all ages) and help them work towards their potential. My son has been guided on a learning path for guitar and looks forward to his weekly lessons. His instructor is enthusiastic, very in tune with his needs and an all around cool guy. Rock House sponsors many events, giving the students an opportunity to play publicly (if they choose). One is a teen/youth open mic held at the Community House. Students can play solo, with a teen house band composed of Rock House students, other musicians their age or with a backing track. Giving students an opportunity to show their skills and gain confidence playing in front of others. Rock House has been inspiring, welcoming and encouraging. 5 stars all around. I highly recommend Rock House to everyone I know.

Excellent staff and instructors. I have been affiliated with the Rockhouse school for over a decade and the school has done nothing short of pushing it's own boundaries everyday to perfect a learning system that is concise, unique and second to none. Highly recommended for lessons of all instruments.

Brittany is an awesome piano teacher. She's very encouraging and has a different way of teaching. She gives you time and space to practice at your own speed. I wanted to learn Canon and have tried with so many teachers, but Brittany explained the tempo, beats and made me clap to understand the rhythm. I've pretty much gotten a page done after just two classes with her. She suggested good posture, how much practice time I needed and even selected a piece that was neither too easy nor too difficult. She's a fantastic teacher especially if you're new, she's very patient, unlike other teachers. I would definitely recommend her to others.

Brittany is an amazing, kind, talented teacher and artist! She is incredibly thoughtful in planning her lessons and if you're like me and not totally sure what your goal is all the time, she is patient and able to talk you through what you may want to explore both in the lesson that day as well as more long-term musically. Brittany was welcoming to me years ago as a glockenspiel student and has introduced me to music I would not have found before as well as to practicing piano. She is incredibly empathetic and knowledgeable about music and her passion for it shows in her lessons!

Rhonda B.

Brittany is a wonderful piano teacher. She was fantastic at encouraging my daughter's creativity and own compositions. She was patient and reassuring when she didn't practice as much as she should and with her quirky learning style. All who hear her play now are amazed at her ability to play by ear, which is not something that is necessarily taught or encouraged in beginning students - Brittany allowed my daughter's unique gifts to emerge. She is also a fantastic musician in her own right and we have been honored to learn from her the past three years.

Our son has been taking piano lessons with Jonathan for several years. Out of all the teachers our son has had, Jonathan is far and away his favorite. Lessons mix technique, theory, scales, improvisation and songs; genres include classical, jazz, rock, pop and more. Jonathan can play anything and more than that, can teach anything! Jonathan respects his students and teaches to their ability—lessons are fun and fast moving, yet demanding. For more advanced students, Jonathan’s performance background is a bonus--he has helped our son prepare for concerts at Madison Square Garden and The Bitter End. Jonathan has been with us every step of the way and we will no doubt be with him every step of our son’s musical career. I would whole-heartedly recommend Jonathan to students of all levels." Thank you so much Jonathan!!!

My kids always enjoyed their piano lessons with you and actually practiced without me having to threaten them! Thanks to you, they both still play. Adam plays for the sheer enjoyment of it. He has a keyboard in his room in Virginia (he's still in the Navy) and puts on his headphones and plays! Thanks, Jonathan! Besides being a fantastic musician, you know how to inspire and teach.

Alberto paired up with Miriam Waks to perform at our wedding celebration at the Nomad Hotel Rooftop. Both Alberto, pianist and Miriam, singer looked fabulous on the day and their performance and music selection was perfect. Communication was very clear and prompt from inquiry up until the day of. They performed some jazz and romantic songs that added such a special unique element to our wedding. They were both extremely positive, professional and polished and we couldn't be happier that we chose them. All of our guests were extremely impressed and can not stop raving about them. If you are looking for a duo at your wedding, Alberto and Miriam are it! Thank you both again!

4/12/17 - I just met Alberto today when he gave me a free lesson through which he/I can asses if this is a good match. He gave me exercises, techniques and suggestions which can improve my playing. He told me to imagine a piano piece as an orchestral composition which should help me with my articulation and expression. He is very generous with his time, & I know his musicality and musical skills will rub off on me with succeeding lessons. N.V.

Alberto is one of the most accomplished musicians I have ever met.

It was a wonderful experience studying with Professor James because I started my vocal journey with her, and it was awesome. She has a very effective, fresh, and totally unique teaching process. In one year and a half, everything that I learned from her has been enough to complement my actual daily routine of practice. It was a pretty excited first year of voice lessons. Personally, I think every good singer needs a good vocal teacher to begin this competitive journey, and I think Ms. James is the indicated and one of the best ones that can take you completely to the right track. She's outstanding!!

I've been working with Amber for over a year (piano), and have really grown from my experience with her! She is always early (yet patiently waiting if I'm not ready) , smart, and adjusts to the needs of all of her students. She's great at providing the building blocks to develop a strong foundation for learning music. Beyond technique and theory, Amber has also taught me how to collect with the songs I'm learning which truly brings out the musicality. I would highly recommend her to anyone!

My 8 year old son has been studying with Di for almost two years since 2015. Di is a wonderful teacher. We all like him. He is very professional, always inspiring and positive, very experienced in teaching especially young kids. My son has improved quite a lot. Di always has a clear plan for teaching. My son is preparing for the ABRSM level one test now, we really appreciate Di's effort helping him. My son likes challenges, he is planning to play a harder piece for his talent show at school. Di has been really encouraging and patient trying to improve his skills. Di is really nice and warm, very polite and nice talking to. When we were buying our piano, he spent his personal time helping us. We are lucky to have him as my son's piano teacher. We highly recommend him.

WHAT A TERRIFIC TEACHER. Sometimes, educators who have been teaching for a while forget what it's like to be the "learner" and can in turn be condescending, impatient, and unwilling to simplify difficult concepts for their students. JOE, on the other hand, was PROFESSIONAL, PATIENT, and PLEASANT. When explaining certain musical concepts to me, he explained it in my language. He encouraged me to ask as many questions as i could come up with; no question was off limits. He tailored the music lesson to my skill set, and even provided study material for me to work with in between our one-on-one lessons. I am excited again about playing piano and learning how to read music!!!!

Our family has been students of The Piano Workshop at Chester for more 8+ years. We are at-home students, so we are not always in the studio, but when we are, we are so impressed with the staff and the overwhelming love of music and dedication to passing that love along to the students. While our teachers have turned over through the years, the excellent talent and teaching skills have not. My son's current teacher, Sonia Kiernan, is a very special person, not only a very talented musician. How someone keeps a 15-year old boy's love for piano thriving like she does is beyond me!

Sonia has made learning to play the piano so much fun for this 57 year old who hasn't played the piano in over 40 years. She makes it informative and a lot of fun. I'm learning music theory! I look forward to practicing because she chooses pieces which challenge me to practice but don't overwhelm me. But the best part of my lesson is watching and listening to her play the piece I'm working on. She's an incredible pianist. I HIGHLY recommend Sonia.

I have known Jacob for several years; he is a fellow teacher at one of the NYC music schools. Jacob is a distinguished pianist, composer, and piano teacher. He possesses a vast knowledge on various musical subjects, such as: piano technique, interpretation, improvisation, composition, theory, harmony, rhythm etc. He is also known for having great contact with students - the ability to understand and to connect with different personalities and people of different backgrounds and ages. His precise and thoughtful presentation of the structure of both music and the instrument is always clear and motivating for students. I highly recommend him as a teacher for any skill level.

Jacob is a great piano teacher. He is patient, friendly and understanding and his teaching method is very effective; he gives very clear and thorough instructions and always demonstrates the way a piece should sound. He inspires and shares his passion for music but also is open to questions and allows the student to express his/her point of view. He sounds great whether playing classical music, jazz, or pop. Also encourages students to write their own songs and improvise. Highly recommended!

She is methodical and extremely organized, teaches music theory so that the kids have a solid music foundation, provides information on books to order or purchases them for us, and is herself an extremely talented musician.

Helene was my piano teacher from kindergarten through high school. She taught me how to read, understand, play and love music. Furthermore, my early -and in-depth- start with piano prepared me for years of trumpet in various advanced bands. Although I am not currently taking lessons, I still sit down to play piano whenever I get the chance. I'll play anything from Bach to Beethoven to Josh Groban to new and classic Disney - really anything I'm in the mood for. Helene's teaching has made me proficient enough in piano and music in general such that I can truly enjoy playing. Thanks Helene!!
