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.

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.

I am fortunate to have found a dedicated and professional violin teacher for my two children. Miss Victoria has a great personality and is able to keep them focused and motivated. My daughter was especially taken immediately with her encouraging and supportive approach. Their hand position and technique are much improved since starting with Miss Victoria.

My 5 year old son started taking piano lessons with WillYouLearn a couple months ago and we are beyond thrilled! My son looks forward to the lesson each week and has made tremendous progress in the short time he has been playing. He already can play songs by memory. The lessons are thorough and our instructor is punctual, accessible and always engaged with my son. Highly recommend!

My wife and I are extremely happy that we hired Mariko as the solo violinist at our Central Park, NY wedding on 11/16/2014. She is a super talented musician and a very friendly person. All of our interactions with her has been wonderful. Since my wedding was outdoors in Central Park, on a cold and windy day, Mariko was initially concerned that the weather may damage her equipment. But she quickly found a solution for us by offering to rent a violin so she can still play at the wedding. She showed up early to the ceremony location (before we even got there). We asked her to play "Canon in D" along with any songs that she feels would suit the occasion. Needless to say, all the songs she chose were romantic and sounded perfect for our wedding. My wife and I received many compliments from our guest about Mariko. We would definitely recommend Mariko to play at any special events.

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.

Maria is the most thorough, pleasant, and knowledgeable private music teacher I've ever taken lessons from. I leave each piano lesson with a more comprehensive understanding of notes, of rhythms, of musicality, but most importantly, of myself.

On our first violin course, Emanuelle helped me to correct my gesture of holding violin, also taught me how to practice upper bow. After the course, i feel that i can hold the violin more comfortablly and also i can make more powerful sound with my bow. Emanuelle teach with great patience, and he know how to inspire me to find my own way to hold the violin and bow. learning with him is a fruitful experience

My daughter has been taking violin lessons with David since she was 9 years old; and more recently, she has started classical, acoustic guitar lessons the summer before entering college. He is a dedicated professional and diligent in making sure his students learn correct technique and become more musical in their own personal way. More importantly, David has the ability to keep his lessons fun and varied! Her lessons have always been highlights of my daughter's week! I recommend David without hesitation.

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!

I reached out to Emma after a friend of mine recommended her to me for music theory help. On my first session, I was able to grasp simple music theory concepts that I had not been able to understand on my own. She was able to really simplify it and explain it to me with the upmost patience even after I felt like I was getting everything wrong. After my first session, I inquired about violin lessons and she sent me home with an assignment to start looking at an intermediate violin piece she picked out that would suit my skill level (I am a novice violin player with some experience). She was very quick to respond when I reached out to her on feedback on choosing my piece. On my second session, she started out with a very organized lesson plan for me and a practice schedule that she typed up for me to stick to. Her lessons are very organized and very informative which have definitely helped me see improvement in my playing just after a couple of lessons. I highly recommend reaching out to Emma if you are looking to get quality lessons from a professional 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!!
